I gather that Robert Downey Jr. is starring in a film remake of British TV screenwriting guru Dennis Potter’s miniseries ‘The Singing Detective’. This gives me mixed feelings… Guess I’ll wait and check the film out. Given the subject matter the casting may be spot on.

Comic like me:

“…we come into the studio and you’re always reading… and readings good, Zombo …but you’re always reading comics.” …the head of Zombos’ first art school explains the difference between ‘real’ reading and… some other kind of thing. (1983)

Also, word has it he and Michael Fikaris (of Silent Army NZ recon contingent) will be heading out for Auckland’s Armageddon Expo.
