Have I done a Gratuitous Icon Post before? Doubt it, my l337 skillz don't really actually stretch to good icons. But I can crop and do borders though. Anyway...

[ profile] tyrell linked to the IMDB page for Hogfather. Sky One, Xmas day. Guess I'd better visit my parents at Christmas then. He also linked to the filmmakers gallery of promo shots. Oh yeah baby. I mean, I know that fancying the actress playing Susan is sorta, y'know, predictable? But, well, d'you blame me? Anyone know if Michelle Dockery can actually act? The rest of the cast is good (David Jason as Albert? Cool!), and Death looks very cool.

Crivens! Oh, I'm about 2/3rds of the way through Wintersmith. Wee Free Men was good but didn't grab, Hat Full of Sky was better, and Wintersmith is very good. I guess the whole written for the audience thing kicks in a little with the first one? Anyway, how does it go? Oh yeah. Nae King, nae Quinn, nae Laird, nae master...

Also? [ profile] nmg gives us Mark Harrison's The Travellers, and for those of you who like their browsing uninterrupted by crappy pop ups that kill options like bookmarking, this link is the start of the actual strip. Why do webdesigners still think that forcing new windows to read their content is in any way a good idea?

I was an extra in the Hogfather. Played a young wizard at the Hogswatch banquet. Terry Pratchett was there, replete with trademark hat, and he turned out to be remarkably boring. Seriously, after approaching him, I found myself waiting to make my excuses and get a cup of tea.

Yes, he was very friendly and all, and I shouldn't be surprised when the foremost purveyor of fantasy comedy turns out to be a boring geek, but I'd always held him up as some insightful chaos-minded bohemian and he behaved like a mortgage advisor!
