  1. I love this new track. It’s like a futuristic ABBA song or something (likewise Oh, Lover from Profound Mysteries II)
  2. I’m as bored of the detractors as they are with the MCU. This has been great fun so far. The fourth wall breaking gag about
  3. Profound Mysteries III will be out on November 18th! If Royksopp can just continue to release a new album every 4 months for ever, I will be very happy.
  4. Yeah, a similar dynamic to the Tobe Hooper/Steven Spielberg situation on Poltergeist I suppose.
  5. Irvin Kershner and Richard Marquand have almost been erased from history in this documentary. You could argue that Lucas gave the direction of actors stuff over to other people in order to direct the effects stuff that he cared more about, but this doc suggests the nominal directors had literally nothing to do with anything that wasn’t directing actors on set.
  6. There are now four tracks available from Profound Mysteries II.
  7. I’ve just downloaded it. I went straight to the Leia chase and it’s basically: Leia asks the mysterious man in the woods why he is there. He says “I’m waiting for you Princess” and bam - a black bag is put over her head, cut to Obi-Wan getting a call from Bail Organa. basically exactly how it should’ve been!
  8. There’s a remix EP out today. I’m not usually a fan of people remixing Royksopp as they tend to remix out all the Royksoppy goodness, but Henry Saiz’s remixes of This Time, This Place are absolutely fantastic. The downtempo remix especially, which adds great big dollops of 303 on top of the building chords, is ace.

    Oh no! Karma strikes!

    Yeah - after Kyrgios has been acting like a complete arsehole for two sets. That’s my point.

    Kyrgios has been a total dick and Tsitsipas has risen to it and the crowd are angry at Tsitsipas? This country seems to love entitled little toddler men.
  12. Yeah - I was kind of exaggerating for dramatic effect, but from Leia’s point of view Vader kills him. Thing is, now that we know Leia not only knew Kenobi but had a grandfatherly relationship with him, she seems more concerned about comforting Luke in the Falcon afterwards than expressing much grief herself. Perhaps she was just being stoic.
  13. Has anyone mentioned… I also thought it was sad when
  14. 10 years. Leia says she’s ten years old when she meets Ben.
  15. The Acolyte series coming next year (I think), is set 100 years prior to The Phantom Menace so that should be pretty ‘new’. I think Yoda ought to be the only character with a potential appearance.
  16. Holy crap! It’s an entire second album, Profound Mysteries II, out on August 19th! https://music.apple.com/gb/album/profound-mysteries-ii/1627032722 It contains what must be track title of the year “Denimclad Baboons”
  17. It looks like they’re not stopping after the latest album. There’s a new track available now. https://music.apple.com/gb/album/sorry-feat-jamie-irrepressible/1626301404?i=1626301931
  18. For fuck’s sake. This really deserves to be picked up and given a proper ending.
  19. No - she just sees him from across the hangar as he sacrifices himself
  20. Stories and writing aside, I always get a big kick out of seeing how the production designers show us the classic trek period through the lens of 21st century effects and budgets. The phasers and communicators look pretty much the same (with proper sound effects!), but the outfits look more uniform like with the addition of embossed panels and more formal collars - it’s like they’re the same uniforms but you can see more detail. The little embossed symbols - like the shapes on the PS5, reflect the department that the officer works in. It’s really lovely attention to detail. And I love that the Enterprise’s nacelles have the glowy red patterns at the front. Even the turbolifts have that swirly pattern on the wall on the back.
  21. I’ve read the book and enjoyed it but forgotten a lot. I like the way the captions tell you what age Henry and Clare as new scenes open - that’s how it’s done in the book. It’s a really simple way of anchoring the viewer/reader. I heard today that’s there’s lots of exposition in the first couple of episodes before it gets really good but I thought it was a strong opener. For obvious reasons it reminded me of the first episode of Matt Smith’s tenure as the Doctor.
