The Amazing Spider-Man

Categories: [ TV/Cinema ]



Peter Parker's parents were killed when he was a kid and raised by his uncle and aunt. Now in high-school, he discovers research results left by his father, and investigates the latter's former colleague, Curt Connors, now a researcher at Oscorp. Sneaking into Connors's lab, he gets bitten by a genetically engineered spider that produces super-strong thread. Peter soon develops super-strenght and the ability to stick to any surface and uses his powers to find the criminal who killed his uncle on the street. He also befriends Connors by giving him a formula left by his father, allowing the latter to produce a serum that regrows a limb of an amputed lab rat. Connors missing himself a forearm, he is very tempted to use it on himself, and pressure from his management to illegally test the serum on unknowing humans makes hime use it. Parker makes himself a superhero costume, equipped with devices projecting Oscorp's super-threads. Connors's experiment turns him into a giant lizard, and wreaks havoc in the city trying to prevent his manager to test the serum on humans. Spider-man, understanding that he is responsible for the lizard's existence tries and stop him. The chief of the police doesn't like Spider-Man the vigilante, and that places Peter in a thight spot, since this person is also the father of Peter's girlfriend. Connors, becoming evil in his Lizard form, wants to turn the whole city into lizards, and plans to use for that purpose a device that would disperse the serum over the whole city. Peter asks his girlfriend (who happens to work at Oscorp and to be very smart) to make an antidote, and uses the device for spreading the antidote instead of the serum. In the end, Connors reveals he has some responsibility in the death of Peter's parents.

Williams Kelpie

Categories: [ Beer/Williams ]


“Prior to the 1850s many Scottish coastal alehouses brewed their own ales using local malted barley grown on fields fertilized with seaweed. We have recreated the unique flavour of this traditional ale with the inclusion of fresh seaweed, Bladder Rack, which is taken fresh from the water on the Argyll coast and masehd in witht he malted and roasted barley. Kelpie is a rich, chocolate ale with an aroma of fresh seabreeze and a distinctive malty texture.”

Kind of chocolatey, but I can't really find the seaweed in the taste. Contains malted barley.

Williams Bros Brewing Co., Alloa, Scotland. 4.4% alcohol.

Towers of Midnight

Categories: [ Books/Wheel of Time ]

ISBN: 9780765364876

© Amazon.fr

Thirteenth book of the Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson, published in 2010. Perrin is slowly learning how not to be drawn into the Wolf Dream. At the same time, he fights Slayer, a mysterious character who kills wolves in the Wolf Dream and who prevents Perrin's army from travelling in the real world through gateways, thanks to a rare ter'angreal. In the real world, he faces the army of the children of the Light, now led by Galad, Elayne's half-brother. The Children accuse Perrin of being a Darkfriend and of having mudered two Children back in the Two-Rivers. Ex-queen Morgase, working under a false name as a maid for Perrin, reveals herself and is chosen by Galad as a judge, which eventually allows Perrin to walk free. The Whitecloaks then join Perrin's huge army and move to Andor, the Last Battle being very near. Trollocs have attacked in the North in large numbers. Meanwhile, Mat also arrives in Andor and sells Elayne plans for a new kind of weapon (a gun). He then frees Moiraine, prisoner in the parallel world of the Eelfinns and the Aelfinns, entering their world through a legendary tower made of metal. In the Black Tower, Logain has mysteriously disappeared and Taim is splitting the Asha'men into two factions; men loyal to Logain find impossible to escape the tower using gateways, and make an alliance with the Aes Sedai sent by the ex-Amyrlin to go agains Taim. In the end, trollocs attack Caemlyn through a long-forgotten Waygate.
