Dear Edgar Wright: An Open Apology Letter

Dear Edgar Wright: An Open Apology Letter

15 Oct, 2016

It was shortly after the showing of The Phantom of the Paradise at the Picturehouse cinema and we spotted a moment where you weren’t in conversation with a friend or another fan and I scurried over to you. I had wanted to say hi briefly when we had first walked in and it wasn’t so crowded. As time went on I was made more and more anxious – hence my awkward fluttering, nervous grin and total inability to have a conversation like a human. It is extremely safe to say that I am Not Good at social interaction.

26 Oct, 2015

Today was the opening day of MCM Comic Con London 2015, as I’m sure you’re all aware, and the October con started extremely well.

Friday has always been a great day to go to MCM and now they’ve made them full days you get the benefit of Saturday hours and shopping but with less of a crush in the halls.

VOICES FROM THE SYNDICATE: Fictional Tech Wish List

VOICES FROM THE SYNDICATE: Fictional Tech Wish List

22 Nov, 2011

Greetings geeks! Once again, we pose an all important question to our very own geeks: if you could have any fictional tech from a book, film, tv or game what would it be?  What do you think the GS crew asked for? Well, it is nearly Christmas…. George: It’s got to be the transporter from star trek! It’d be amazing to be able to just transport myself to the train station in the morning instead of having to walk in the rain! Although saying that, I could transport myself to work, and cut out the whole commute as well I suppose… Luke: The sonic screwdriver.  Dave W: I cannot say anything other than a lightsabre…I’m physically incapable of walking past a forcefx sabre in the toyshop without firing it up. Say what you like about the Prequels, they gave us some amazing lightsabre battles. Dion: It’s got to be a holo deck from Star Trek for me, no questions. It’s the gift that keeps on giving. You want it, you just give a voice command. Food, drink, women, exploration, women, food, the Best role playing games in the world. Plus in a pinch you could convert the tech to be a teleportation pad or brothel. I’d never leave it! (Plus… think of the women.) WedgeDoc: Do vehicles count? A working TARDIS (and knowledge how to use it properly) would be great. Probably with a wood-panelled effect console dekstop theme like the one in the 8th Doctor’s first story. With this, I’d be able to live how / when I pleased really 🙂 The annoying thing is most of the really cool tech would probably get you into trouble … on account of dealing death! So taking weapons out of the picture, I’d have to go with the new “magic wand” Sonic Screwdriver, even though I don’t like it on principle (It’s not a screwdriver any more) I have to admit it’s a darn useful piece of kit. Need some cash? No worries (The Long Game), Broken fence? Whatever! (The Doctor Dances)…etc etc… BrodySixx: I always thought a hoverboard would be handy in traffic and lightsabers could help in so many ways other than defeating enemies! Thomas...
