Stuff that occurs to me

All of my 'how to' posts are tagged here. The most popular posts are about blocking and private accounts on Twitter, also the science communication jobs list. None of the science or medical information I might post to this blog should be taken as medical advice (I'm not medically trained).

Think of this blog as a sort of nursery for my half-baked ideas hence 'stuff that occurs to me'.

How to watch #Elf in London in December 2013

I've just learned that Sky has bought the rights to show Elf and it won't be on terrestrial UK television this Christmas (ie, Channel 4). That's a shame, I've fond memories of watching it while being on Twitter and it was nice with lots of other people joining in too - in 2011 I seem to remember that it trended in the US and UK around the same time and the director, Jon Favreau, joined in as well and sent tweets expressing his delight that lots of people were enjoying it.

The film is only ten years old but seems like the sort of Christmas classic that was just always there. Another of his films that I rate highly is Zathura: A Space Adventure but Elf is spectacularly Christmassy.

I'm sure lots of people will enjoy watching it on Sky but I don't have a subscription so I can go and watch it in a cinema instead.

Here are the London showings that I'm aware of, to find other ones that I've not listed / don't know about please see the excellent LondonNet film guide: http://www.londonnet.co.uk/films/index.html

I've included ones that are already sold out for completeness and also to remind me to pay better attention to them next year ;)

Comments written in ALL CAPS LOCK will be deleted and I won't publish any pro-homeopathy comments, that ship has sailed I'm afraid (it's nonsense).
