Well that was nothingy.
It's trying to be scary but there's nothing about it that makes it a Torchwood story.
It's just a spooky voice trying to get you to look at it. Except that's a stupid conceit for an audio play because you can't get the audience involved. There's never any danger we'll see something, so, no visceral involvement.

There's no point doing a scary thing isolates your character story unless it reveals things about your character. The Nightmare Man did a good scary thing. This might be any attempted spook story on the radio, but not a very competent one.

Don't bother.

Now the piano is gone I can move my chair back. The TV looks so much better now I'm at a different angle and not so close I need to worry about kicking it. I moved some other stuff around though and I definitely need a blackout curtain or blind for the living room window if I want to watch TV in the daytime. The old TV is ninety degrees away sitting in front of a bookshelf, which is more practical except for not having the wires available. new curtain is easier than new wires and new bookshelves.

Now the chair has moved the lighting is all wrong. Right in my face. And again, easier to fix the light shade than all the other parts and pieces, but, I had chosen a good one I like, so I currently want to fuss with the chair until it somehow becomes acceptable.



Continuum 3.1 finally chooses some laws of time, but they're harsh and I don't see how they're internally consistent. Interesting to see how that will play through though.

I feel like a lot of stuff in tv could be fixed by a proper bit of communication. And that's always frustrating. But dramatic.

It continues interesting.

It is a bit frustrating that I aspire to be some sort of writer
and yet
the part where I send my words to other people routinely makes me want to chew on my wrists.

that sort of complicates the endeavour.

ah well, for as long as this blog endures, the world gets a record of my tiny life
which is something.
