It's Friday and time to check-in on the awesome stuff discovered during the week.
San Diego Comic-Con
SDCC is the convention for all things pop culture and SF, and has become the place for major film and TV property announcements and releases. Held over four days every July, it officially goes off and I've been planning to go for ages and it looks like 2018 might be my year. Anyways, the swathe of trailers that emerge after each SDCC is HUGGGGE and this year ain't no different. I'm super excited to see Star Trek: Discovery, Bright and The Gifted, and bloody excited by Thor: Ragnarok (seriously can that be out already please????!). Cautiously optimistic over The Defenders, but Inhumans looks like the money could have been spent elsewhere. It's a weird mix this year, and not entirely unpredictable.
Catch all the trailers over at this great Vulture article and you can hear my thoughts on the latest releases in a special SDCC edition of Lady Parts Podcast on 2 August.
Night Noodle Markets (South Bank Parklands)
|Brisbane at night. So purdy!|
It's a pretty sweet night out, and I highly recommend hitting up stalls you've never visited before or sampling a limited edition dish from the more established restaurants. It's not street market cheap, but it's a relatively cheap night out esp if you score a table early and camp for the night.
This time of year it is freezing in Brisbane, so be sure to take a jacket and be prepared to wait for a table if you're the sit-and-eat type. BUT it's also dog-friendly which is A+ in my book (noodle + puppers, huzzah!)
What are you loving this week?
