It’s the Return of Anything Can Happen Tuesday!

Iancaimercer's Blog

SAY KIDS, WHAT DAY IS IT? IT’S ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN TUESDAY TIME! (In the style of Howdy Doody- from Back to the Future!!!)

Yes, I have expanded it to Anything can happen Wednesday/Thursday etc, but with my new job on Thurs/fri/Sat nights, looks like my weekend is now Mon/Tues/Weds, which is seriously wackadoodle on a scale not seen since the end of The Big Bang Theory, which I still haven’t seen, so shush with the spoilers please!

Anyhoo, I’m off to get a New Camera today, as the old one is being held together by blutack and sellotape (or sticky-back plastic if you’re going for Blue Peter style Ian!)

I’ve got a few things in mind, including trying to finish off this Alternate Architectural project I’ve been faffinf about with since Chinese New Year. As well as what Wildlife I can spot on the Wirral, so we will see what…

STAR WARS 101- THE ET CONNECTION

Iancaimercer's Blog

SW101ET

Following on from the last SW101 post about Phase 2 of Star Wars or Book 2 of the Journal of the Whills, it might be worth exploring some of the theories about what the Whills might be.

I already pointed out last time that Lucas thought that R2D2 was the keeper of the JOTW, a record of his travels and retold a hundred years later. (Mentioned in Revenge of the Sith behind the scenes and in How Star Wars conquered the universe by Chris Taylor- Chapter 24- page 435)

But in the light of the release of Bob Igers memoir, The Treatments Disney did not use contained more about The Whills, but what they have done is have Chirret and Baize as Guardians, as well as a short story where two Whills argue over the opening titles of Episode 4.

So it seems to be pointing in the direction of…

Drowning in Baileys and Chablis- Mad maths on the Spirits aisle

Iancaimercer's Blog

I once said I’d never work in Retailing over Christmas. My previous experience- Wesley Owen books and music in Liverpool was for six months in 2000, with about 12 years of helping out with Stocktaking and events.

So actually getting a new job- the first in Widnes since February 2006 when I left my placement at Surestart and the Library, was a surprise.

Now I’ve been there for a month, it’s been interesting, a different experience from the usual ticket to ride on the trains and buses, as well as mediating fall-outs/disputes. Tending to injuries on the playground and keeping kids entertained for a few hours in Chester.

So, last weekend, different experience from being on pop aisle, although the Pet food wasn’t great the week before, was going on Beers and Spirits. Oh my giddy, drunken goddess, how many different wines, from…

THE MANDALORIAN- First impressions (Spoiler free)

Iancaimercer's Blog

The_Mandalorian_logo

Lucasfilm/Disney’s first Live-action series debuted this week. My first impressions were that it took its time to get going, but like a slow simmer, it picked up its pace and came to a boil for the ending, which was really good.

For a Pilot episode it was pretty short, under forty minutes, but then there were no adverts, so that could explain why. (American TV is structured round five acts with advert breaks, so this might be mould-breaking. I honestly wasn’t paying attention to Structure, just how the story went and the characterisations.)

Given that the only other thing I’ve seen Pedro Pascal in was Game of Thrones, The Red Viper of Dorne gave a somewhat muted performance, which was mainly due to wearing a helmet all the way through. The action scenes were well executed and the finale with IG11 introduced yet another droid sidekick character, following on from…

MISSION STATEMENT 2020-

Iancaimercer's Blog

willingMISSION STATEMENT 2020-

“Where are we going?” “Are you talking philosophically or geographically?” “Philosophically of course.” “In that case, we’re going to lunch!”- The 4th Doctor and Romana- The City of Death, Part 1.

Since I’ve had one story accepted for paid publication in 2020, no details, but it’s a romantic story for Hearts Kiss, one of only two Contemporary stories, while I’ve over a dozen SF stories in need of a home.

Anyway, I shall persevere. In the meantime, here’s my mission statement for 2020!

Catching up on the Posting

Iancaimercer's Blog

It has been a busy-dizzy week at Mercer Central. Mainly because of the New Job, but also because I’m still doing the old and even having a new Story in print- in the New Year!

Trying to get some extra money just to survive Christmas, without getting into even more debt, has been a bit of a struggle the past couple of years, so getting a part time seasonal job at Asda is a bit different, though sleep deprivation kicked in Friday (it’s three nights) and the clock going back an hour was epically confusing (was awake to experience 11pm twice, usually asleep, so that was interesting.)

Anyway, another epic backlog of posts/photos and videos to edit and share. Yay, more catching up with the posting.

So, anyway, also had a story accepted, no details beyond possible February publication, not even sure which story it is, but one down another…

ANOTHER INTERGALACTIC VOYAGE TO VIRGO- Star Wars themes!

ANOTHER INTERGALACTIC VOYAGE TO VIRGO- Star Wars themes!

“If there’s a bright centre of the universe, we’re on the planet it’s farthest from.” – Luke Skywalker, Star Wars Episode 4- A New Hope

galaxy2

Following on from An Atlas of the Universe post and the video of the Intergalactic Flight to the Virgo Cluster, as featured on Dr. Brent Tully’s Astronomical website, I have done another edit of the vid, this time with The Throne Room Medal Ceremony theme and end credit theme from Star Wars Episode 4 A New Hope.

Dr. Tully is an Astrophysicist with the Institute for Astronomy, University of Hawaii, researching large-scale structures in the universe, such as mapping Galaxy clusters and voids. His website included a short computer-generated video of a voyage out of the Milky Way, through the Local Group of Galaxies and through several other Groups until arriving at M87 at the Heart of…
