just you, me and portion of random

After a little bit of gentle, and not so gentle, pushing from a good friend of mine I finally bit the bullet and recorded a song.

It is quite ready to see the light of day yet but I will share it soon.

So I started the week with a stinking cold which in turn developed into dizziness and vomiting, this then progressed to crippling headache and stabbing pain in the ear. After a couple of days of this I gave up and went to see the G.P. the diagnosis was that I had a ear infection which was the cause of the dizziness and vomiting. Fear not antibiotics would be the miracle cure, or not as it would turn out, cue a pain below my rib cage that felt like I’d been used as a punch bag.

After Googling my symptoms and dismissing pancreatitis, liver disease and pregnancy as the cause I looked up the side effects of the antibiotics and sure enough there were my symptoms. So back to the G.P. I went this morning to see what could be done and apparently for all the pain they have caused the antibiotics have done the trick and the swelling in my ear has reduced and can be managed by good old paracetamol from here on in, and the abdominal pain should ease within 24 hours of stopping taking the antibiotics.

Lets hope this week will be a better one.

Final after 10 years away from TV we are finally getting a new trek TV series!

“CBS Television Studios announced today it will launch a totally new Star Trek television series in January 2017. The new series will blast off with a special preview broadcast on the CBS Television Network. The premiere episode and all subsequent first-run episodes will then be available exclusively in the United States on CBS All Access, the Network’s digital subscription video on demand and live streaming service.”

Other than the fact the that Alex Kurtzman will serve as executive producer, that’s all CBS have said, but that enough to get me really excited.

I am a self-confessed Star Trek obsessive, I grew up watching Trek and it will always have a place in my heart. Under the guidance of J.J. Abrams the franchise seems to have found it mojo, yes I know some die hard fans seem to loath the new Trek but personally I love the new moves and thanks to the plot device of alternate realities I think it slots nicely into the Star Trek family.

It will be interesting to see what time period and indeed which reality this new series will be set in, personally I always wanted to see more of Star Trek: Enterprise, but thanks to bad management I don’t think it was ever given a fair enough chance, and to dismiss its final episode as nothing more than a holodeck simulation was just the final slap in the face.

I’m sure the rumour mill will be going into over drive over the next 12 months so I’ll be watching with great interest.
