Nightflyers
A hard-to-find 1987 movie adapted from George R.R. Martin's excellent 1980 novella of the same name, Nightflyers is deeply cheesy, very 1980s music video look (hair, shoulder pads, and why does a spaceship have live flame sconces and candelabras along with lots of fog?) and a film score that is in many places amazingly close to Vangelis' score for Blade Runner. I saw this when it came out and it took me an actual bit of effort recently to track down a viewable copy. If Rifftrax is looking for new material this might suit them.

The Sunday Times’ document also details the attempted pacts made between bidding countries though the England 2018 bid team allegedly suffered major embarrassment when trying to collude with South Korea.

The deal was that Dr Chung Mong-Joon was to vote for England 2018 and Geoff Thompson, England’s voter, would vote for South Korea’s 2022 bid. According to the Times’ FA source, England were double-crossed.

"We did a deal with the South Koreans whereby we would vote for them and they would vote for us and they then didn’t vote for us. I mean it tells you all about the English bid doesn’t it. We even fucked up fiddling it. Even the illicit bit was a fuck up because they didn’t vote for us. They knew the next day … So David [Dein] goes up to the South Koreans and says ‘Why didn’t you vote for us?’ and the bloke said, ‘That’s football’.”

Destiny tree climbing


So last week playing Destiny I discovered that the tree between the gunsmith and the bounty tracker in the Tower plaza is climbable: it's gnarled and twisted and you climb it in a series of hops like a spiral staircase, then you can just watch and relax. I admire the attention to detail that built into the game this kind of real-world-like interaction and an activity that doesn't involve shooting things and indeed appears to have no game point-related goal. (I assume there's no achievement badge for tree climbing.)
