FTN Blog October 4th 2011
My, oh my, what a busy week it’s been for FTN.
Over the past seven days we have been up to all sorts, bringing you Nerd followers some of the latest news to rock our world. Rejoice at the announcement that Christopher Nolan is to take over the reins of the new Twilight Zone movie and the legend that is Kurt Russell is to replace Kevin Costner in Tarantino’s latest cinematic offering, Django Unchained.
Slightly closer to home however, but no less important, FTN has been nominated as one of the finalists in the Northern Ireland Choice Awards. Following our success in the Northern Ireland Social Media Awards earlier in the year (we won best Facebook page no less), this is further evidence that Nerds really can make difference. this is Our way of saying thanks for voting.
Meanwhile, on Saturday we attended Invasion Belfast, the Emerald Garrison’s ever popular Star Wars event at W5 in Belfast. FTN got to interview Boba Fett himself, Jeremy Bulloch, and Femi Taylor, Jabba the Hutt's Twi'lek slave dancer Oola in Return of the Jedi. We’ve met Mr Bulloch a number of times before and as ever he was a real gentleman. As for Ms Taylor? Well, what a lovely lady. On a side note, just a quick word to say how beautiful she looked. WOW!
Also, a big thank you to organiser Martin Ryan and all his team for being so welcoming.
The week ahead should be a little less hectic for FTN however don’t forget to tune into the aforementioned radio show this Thursday evening (9pm UK time) for some great craic and even better music. Last week’s show, meanwhile, is now available as a podcast while the lovely Ruth has just uploaded her latest video blog onto our Facebook page.
That's really it for now but don't forget to check out our podcast here and let us know what you think on our facebook page!
Not much more to say but a big thank you for following us nerds and I’ll speak to you all next week.
