I'm sure this will make a lot of people online happy anyway. Personally I think there are far more interesting female characters in the Marvel Universe than the perpetually bland Black Widow, a character who basically just seems to be defined by hyper-competent which... isn't actually a personality at all. Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige hasn’t left himself a fat lot of wiggle room with his latest answer to the question of a possible Black Widow ...

Ms. Marvel is at the top of my list for characters to get their own movie, but I'll definitely watch a Black Widow movie.

Highlights for me include the return of Person of Interest, The Last Ship and the premiere of Preacher. What catches your interest? io9.com bills this as an Ultimate guide but since it only goes up to July 31st they're using a pretty narrow definition of Summer. Ever heard of August guys? Summer always feels so full of things we should be doing, and yet, when there’s so much new television, why should we even bother to leave the house? There’s a ...

I tend to run a few years behind everyone else - I'm almost done with the first season of Person of Interest, and haven't even started Wayward Pines yet - but I'm so excited for Preacher! Have you seen the fight-in-car scene that was released a few weeks back? It's bonkers.

We’re not straying too far from type here. The Doctor’s new companion is still female and young. But if this trailer is anything to go by Bill as played by Pearl Mackie is going to bounce of the Doctor a little differently to the last two. I’m optimistic.…
We're not straying too far from type here. The Doctor's new companion is still female and young. But if this trailer is anything to go by Bill as played by Pearl Mackie is going to bounce of the Doctor a little differently to the last two. I'm optimistic. I also really like this method of introducing the new companion. Rather than just giving us a press photo we get an idea of how she will act and speak in character. FacebookTwitter Related

I know it’s not great writing or film making but I love the original Independence Day and if this trailer is anything to go by, I’ll love the sequel too. It’s all about the explosions.

If you want to know both what is right and wrong with Supergirl then the season one finale is a great summary. There's some great acting, some decent character moments and yet somehow the show manages to leech all of the drama out of what should have been a tense end of the world scenario. Every time the show sets up something interesting instead of building on it, it falls back on the most clichéd of clichés. When it's not doing the tedious lov...

Quite simply, I agree with everything. It didn't seem that big of a deal that everyone's head would explode.

Besides, I don't mind there being some differences to comic continuity, but the idea that Supergirl wouldn't be able to fly, or survive for a while, in space flies in the face of everything set up by comics and movies featuring Superman and Supergirl for forever.

The early morning walks have resumed which gives me the opportunity to take photos like this as I wander around before going into the office. It’s amazing to me how good the camera’s on phones have become to allow me to take shots like this.

Marvel has been trying very hard in the last few years to make The Inhumans a thing. There’s a whole corporate politics angle to that and while Marvel won’t admit it the circumstantial evidence is pretty strong. Marvel can’t use the X-Men characters on…

How do you feel about a Game of Thrones spinoff? HBO are obviously keen to keep the showing going since it's hugely popular, but the showrunners have stuck to their guns (so far) about ending the show in the next two seasons. It's a big world though with plenty of other characters and time periods to explore. A Song of Ice and Fire author George R. R. Martin believes that there are plenty of opportunities for a Game of Thrones spin-off or two. So...

I'm OK with it as long as it doesn't become a way for them to cop-out actually finishing story lines in this series.

Introduction
How do I...
It's a Gaelic spelling of Ewan. Phonetically you would say you-an.


Summary:
Born in Scotland, living in the United States. Two sons. One wife. Two sisters. I have opinions on everything and a store of largely useless knowledge that I like to share with as many people as possible.

If there's a social network site, I've probably signed up and used it. If it's a software, I've installed it. Jack of many trades. Master of few.

Interests:
  • Computers & Gadgets
  • Science Fiction & Fantasy
  • Comic books
  • Photography
  • Movies
  • Books
  • Television
  • Hiking
  • Android
  • Aspergers
  • Depression
What Do You Post About?

Mostly you're going to see links to news items for Science Fiction and Fantasy movies, tv etc. Some reviews from my blog. Photos I've taken (always looking for feedback). Plus some general tech news.

Amongst those there may be some quick status posts of what I'm up to, or maybe some thoughts on G+ and social networking in general.

I do occasionally post "political" links, but I have no interest in left/right  democrat/republican/libertarian political discussions. Similarly I only discuss religious matters with close friends. I consider that a personal matter.

What About Work?

I don't intend this to be a work driven account particularly, but just to make my profile comprehensive. I have worked in a number of different fields:
  • Computer Training Consultant
  • Database Developer (integrating with websites)
  • Procurement Specialist
  • Contracts Specialist
  • Unit Manager
  • Director of Operations
As a result I have a wide range of skills that can be applied to many different situations.

Skills:
  • Touch Typing
  • Office Software Training
  • PHP, Perl, ASP, SQL, HTML, CSS, Javascript
  • Database Design
  • Technical Writing
  • Blogging
  • Management & Team Building
  • Procurement & Purchasing
  • Contracts Management

Having twins makes for challenging birthdays. So this year we decided to take advantage of one of the birthday packages that Pump It Up offers and the experience was great. For those who aren't familiar they're an indoor kids activity playground (bouncy slides, bouncy obstacle courses, bouncy bouncers!). We got a 90 minute package for 15 kids and pretty much the only thing we had to do was bring the cake (or cupcakes in our case). The friendly staff helped us bring the cupcakes in from the car and helped keep the boys occupied since we arrived a good 20 minutes early. When our timeslot came, not all of the guests had arrived, but we were able to go in and spend the time with the boys while the staff again handled the later arrivals, right down to making sure the presents were taken care of. We chose a Superhero theme package so the boys got to pick their superhero names and engage in some other games. Of course all the equipment was popular. One of my sons has aspergers and when the excitement got to much and he had a melt down, the staff handled it wonderfully. They stayed calm, checked with us to see if we needed any help and made sure that we felt no pressure. Basically he was able to expend his tantrum in the safety of one of the pieces of equipment and once he was back in control, out he came to join the rest of the group. The last half hour of the party was in one of their party rooms where two blow-up "thrones" had been set up for the birthday boys to sit in (wearing capes, masks and blow up crowns no less). This was popular of course. And once again we didn't have to do anything. The staff set out the food, made sure the kids had what they need and tidied up afterwards. All in all a great party for the boys and their friends and no stress for us.

I've always liked this park for its size and variety. But since the county took it over there's been a significant improvement in the play areas for children with all new equipment installed.

Great theater. Comfortable seats, lots of leg room, easy to see over the other customers. Food is decent. Ticket prices are surprisingly low.
