I've said it too often before, but Deadwood is what Shakespeare would have written for TV. Almost every line is poetry, every character both angel and monster, every subplot an epic in its own right.  There never was such a show.  So naturally it was killed off in its prime.

Deadwood is a work of art - loved it, and so wish it could have continued in either a 4th series or the oft-rumoured TV movies.

Jenny who?  Only one I can think of is Agutter (who has quite a body of work - no pun intended).

Correct - Jenny Agutter is in both Avengers Assemble and Winter Soldier, sitting on the security council (she turns into Scarlett Johannsen in the latter) It's a good shout.

As is the shout for Bill Murray - just stick on Groundhog Day, again and again. ;)

But the winner is Al Pacino:

Godfather I & II
Heat
Carlito's Way
Scarface
Scent of a woman

...to name but a few.

Did our now traditional "cinema on xmas eve" with the sprogs yesterday and 2 years in a row it's Star Wars.

Me: I'll be honest and say that 20 minutes in I felt a bit "uh, oh...Phantom Menace time" but the 2nd act caught things up, and that space battle was just brilliant. And then Vader kicking ass i enjoyed it overall.

Wife: She was "meh" about it.

Youngest daughter: She was bored after 20 minutes, and only got back in to it when I told her that Leia was going to turn up. She did enjoy Vader kicking ass though.

Oldest dauther: She loved it - totally fixated, she knew exactly where it fit in with the whole story. And she loved it when Vader kiccking f**king ass. The only thing that didn't work for her was they all die - questions at the credits were "What happened to Jyn? Why do all the characters that I like die? When is the next one!!?!?!?!?"

Vader kicked ass - oh yes!!

Watched that this morning and I have to say that it filled me with dread - not from fear of it being bad, but bloody hell the facehugger jumping out? The trailer had a bit of a mix of Alien and Aliens in what was going on, and the only bit that I cringed at was the "oooohhh they're getting naughty, what's that Alien tail up to?" but then the Alien appeared.

That bloody facehugger!!!

That's a bit tasty - a bit of a Chaos AD vibe to it.

I've been pretty much listening to just the following 5 albums on shuffle for the last few months:

Dead Label - Throne of Bones
Meshiaak - Alliance of Thieves
Armored Saint - Win Hands Down
Paradise Lost - The Plague Within
Alter Bridge - The Last Hero

Started new job on Monday - gone from working from home, with occasional customer site visits, to back in the office daily. New employers is 'nearby' to where I live, but not reachable directly via public transport.....bus goes part-way, then I walk 2.5 miles to the office. Tuesday the walk took 50 minutes, yesterday 48, and today have got it down to 42 minutes (I do like walking)....going to be getting a bike sorted for the full journey (10 miles door to door) soon, but am enjoying the walking workout at the moment. And the main reason for that, other than the health benefits, is the opportunity to see some of the local wildlife along the route. Just this morning, a couple of deer bounded across the road about 40 yards ahead of me.....was able to watch them as they continued on in to the fields. Lovely.

Got that walk down to sub-39 minutes now. BOOM!!

Do Facebook accounts last forever after people die?  I've just noticed I'm still Facebook friends with a mate who hasn't been around for five years.

They stay until they closed down using the account credentials - in the absence of those, a family member can request closure. Otherwise, they stay there.

Got a couple myself now :(

If they'd been up front then they would have had to pay for me to do the training up (my boss would have most likely charged them for the privilege) - this guy isn't from the company I work for, he's from the company that have the knowledge gap (what is funny is that they used to offer the service we provide, then they dropped their team....and are now appearing to put it back together)

Company I'm with is perfectly fine to work for (only reason I'm leaving is because after 18 months of working from home, I'm itching to get back in to an office environment)....it's the companies that outsource to us that are the pains in the arse (the PM and Shadowman being those pains this time around) - they go in to customer X, tell them they can deliver this and that and then come to us (the actual experts) and tell us this and that, and we point out that they've overplayed their hand and then they have to mop up the mess. And then they blame us for the customer kicking off at them.

As much as I love being the person who goes in and does the work, I do feel really sorry for the 'customer X' lot as they've had to deal with the PMs talking some amount of shite.
