This evening while faffing about with Websites and things, I realised that it’s April already, and that I’ve not updated this site with any new content Since January!
I really must make more of a conscious effort to update my witterings here, even if they are seldom read by anyone other than myself!
So… what’s new? Probably not much!
- I’ve driven nearly 18,000 miles in my (no longer quite so new) car in the last 9 months!
- I’m getting to know the road between Home and Chichester extremely well indeed! (for Work!)
- I’m still working too hard!
- I’m still just as much of a geek as ever!
I think this year is going to see some interesting changes for me in a number of areas. I expect that in January next year, I’ll look back on this post and think – Yes, I was right! Watch this space!
So I’ve refreshed this site with a new theme! I expect I’ll be buggering about with it for a while!
I’ve helped my cousin and her man launch a new Website for their business. Why not pay a visit to www.heathmorgan.co.uk and have a gander?
Now I really MUST make sure that I find some new content to put on this website more often!
I’ve resolved to try and start to update this Website a little more frequently!
And in that spirit, I’ve settled on a new theme which I think is quite clean and tidy, and retains all the functions I’m after. I think it looks quite good, but will give it a week or so before deciding finally.
In other news, it’s the last episode of Game of Thrones tonight on Sky. I fervently hope this gets picked up for a second season, as it’s most definitely new and innovative Fantasy/Scifi Television, not another remake or reimagining which we seem to see so many of just at the moment.
Being the regular reader that I am, I am so painfully aware that there are ample quality works out there that would translate well to modern television, so why oh why do Film & Television studios insist on Remaking older works. I cite recent works such as “V”, the aborted attempt to remake “Dune” (even though SciFi Channel already did that), the recent Star Trek film, and we’re close to seeing the third “reboot” for Superman, to name but a few.
Game of Thrones is based on the book A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 1) by George R R Martin.
I think the relative successes of Sky’s attempts to bring Terry Pratchett’s work to life on screen prove that there’s an appetite out there for the content, and so there’s no need to try and appeal to an existing fan base for a previous incarnation, provided of course that the work is done to a certain quality standard in the first place.
