Not a bad day today. The new album by The Dead Daisies arrived. It’s really rather good. I wrote a review for it and put it up on my other website. No. I’m not going to tell you what that website is because I’m trying to keep these things as separate as I can.
Another thing that I bought today that fits into the “do something that makes you happy” bit of treating your own depression is the new Eighth Doctor box set from Big Finish. It’s called Ravenous, and carries on from Doom Coalition.
If you’re not a fan of Doctor Who, this will mean absolutely nothing to you. Same goes if you think it started in 2005 and the first Doctor was Christopher Ecclestone.
He wasn’t. He was the Ninth.
I’m really looking forward to wrapping my ears around this one, at least partly because of the carryover villain from Doom Coalition – The Eleven. He’s a Time Lord whose previous regenerations didn’t really go all the way, so he has all his previous personalities rattling around in his head, like a Gallifreyan version of multiple personality disorder.
Mark Bonnar manages to create all eleven personalities and give them all life, making him a pretty damned sinister character, especially when ten of those personalities are varying levels of evil, with one “good” one trapped in the middle.
OK then. Time for bed.
If I can get my brain going in the right direction, I might even start doing a bit of writing again.
