Welcome to Kid Zone

It was my birthday this week and I turned the ripe old age of 27, so obviously I spent much of the week curled in a ball willing time to stop and wishing for the things of youth. This birthday may or may not explain why I recently got hold of the entire set of ThunderCats original 80s series and why I spent a lot of the last few weeks making the Skeletor noise.

I’ve also had time recently to do a bit of writing, and I’m two scenes into a new one act play at the moment. It’s so new it still has the wrapper on and doesn’t even have a working title. Just “new play”. More news of that to follow. In the meantime here’s a ten minute piece I wrote recently to keep you going; Welcome to Kid Zone. I’ll warn you now – it contains a lot of very bad language and I don’t mean split infinitives.

This man's jokes are funnier than mine - that's why I steal them.

In other news almost everyone’s making their way home again for Easter – such is the life of university students. As one of the few that remain here permanently it’s always eerie to see the city bereft of students. You never quite get used to it. However, it should leave me with plenty of time to finish “new play”…and to do that PhD thing.

  1. As a man of the same age Nick, I can totally understad your Thundercats purchase, and may I even say… Jealous!!

    I have heard so many rumours that they are making a movie of this, but yet to see anything 100% concrete. There was an awesome fan-made movie on youtube a while ago. It was awesome. So good in fact, I’m going to have to go and find it now.

      Haha, thanks, Alex. Glad that I’m not alone in hoarding old children’s TV. I think they were expecting to trade the movie off the rebooted series in 2011, but I don’t know whether the reception to that was as big as they hoped. I haven’t watched it myself, so I can’t say how it compares. And the fan-made movie was awesome!
