Sweet(/terrifying) Dreams are Made of These


Nicked this picture from someone else's blog. I loved the tripods. I used imagine being in the Tripods. Also found the title link website about Chocky which reminded me how deeply scary the show was. Don't make 'em like that anymore....

I seem to remember as a child reading a book about Tripods and having a very vivid image of what they might look like. The posted photo looks just like I remember seeing them in my head. Let me know if I'm not crazy.

(P.S. - Lovely, those hills.)

there is a trilogy by someone called john christopher from which the BBC series was adapted.

As for your craziness, I can't possibly comment. But you're not alone buddy....

You and Roger seem to form the fan base of this show. Any good?

it was roger's post that reminded me of it. i haven't thought about the tripods for years. but when i was a kid i never missed an episode. so perhaps it was a great show. i also never missed an episode of the A-Team though...

We had things like The Girl From Tomorrow. Terrible.

'we' ? tell me you don't mean 'we young people' ?!!! oh my, i think i have to lie down for a bit....

I specifically mean people around the age of 23.

mister tumnus said...

well i am around that age... somwhere on the far outer reaches of the periphery of 'around'...

It's not a nice age. Being a centaur would be nicer.
