Pride Hard 2.0

22 Apr

New Skitch

It’s been over two years since my last post, I have been failing on my mission Pride and Prejudice mission.  Over the last few years I’ve been getting really into comic books and its been my hobby and main focus.  I’ve been living and breathing comics so it’s been what I have been motivated to write about and share.

I started by just putting those blog posts here on my Pride and Prejudice blog but that doesn’t make any sense and is just confusing for everyone.  So a few months ago I decided to make a second blog dedicated to two of my favorite things, Comic Books and Cats.  It’s been great and I’ve been really happy with it.

However I got a mission and I need to follow through.  It’s been an exciting time for Pride and Prejudice and there are even more forms to enjoy including a new Manga and Card Game.  So I’m coming back to the game!  I’ll start off with finishing the 1995 mini-series, and then the world!

PSA: Pride and Prejudice 2: Pride Harder Coming to TV?

6 Jul

BBE One has announced a three part serial television adaptation of the suspense novel written by P.D. James titled, Death Comes to Pemberley.

It is set to take place six years after the events of Pride and Prejudice. During Elizabeth’s and Darcy’s annual ball Lydia “the bad one” Wickham shows up and there is a murder mystery surrounding the death of her husband.

According to the reports I’ve seen it is set to be released in later 2013 early 2014.

Casting has already been completed for the roles of Mr. Darcy (Matthew Rhys, who also starred in the FX Show The Americans), Elizabeth Bennett (Anna Maxwell Martin, XXX), and Lydia Wickham (Jenna-Louise Coleman, from Dr. Who).



Change in Mission

6 Jul

I have all ways gone into things head first and finding myself on the deep end of any hobby I have. When I was in middle/high school it was music that was the focus of my interest, later it was video games, then it was reading, and so on. When I find a new interest it is all I want to do. I live and breathe whatever new interest I have and let all other things fall by the way side. Usually I will go through phases of really being interested in music and catching up on that end and then it will switch to really being interested in video games, or a book series (I’m looking at you Game of Thrones), or comic books. It really is in phases and I know enough of myself to realize that it will just come and go. One week I may be hardcore into video games again, like a few months ago when Bioshock Infinite was released, and the next week it might be something new. The key is that it eventually comes full circle and whenever the little gerbils on a wheel that run my brain decide it’s time for something new I will to back to these interests that I love, and I will just pick up wherever I left off.

Lately it has been comic books and I have been spending a lot of my time catching up and getting into various series over various decades. Which means as of lately I have been staring at my Pride and Prejudice box set of the mini-series from the 90’s week after week wanting to get it started but finding every excuse available not to. It’s not that I have given up on my mission but it’s just not the peak of my interest as of late and I would rather wait until I am fully back into Pride and Prejudice mode to start writing about it again rather than force myself to write about it when my interests are elsewhere.

That being said I have lots of opinions on other things and have paid my webhosting fees to have this website so I am going to use it. I am now in addition to Pride and Prejudice material will write about whatever else I am interested in at the time while peppering in some Pride and Prejudice material whenever possible. It’s a marathon not a race and I will still complete my goal of watching/reading/listening to every form of Pride and Prejudice out there!

PSA: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies News

5 May

Lily CollinsWhat I think most people (my self included) had thought was stuck in the phantom zone known as development hell the movie adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith’s master piece Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has risen from the ashes like a mighty phoenix.  Lily Collins has been set to play the part of Elizabeth Bennett.  You may remember Lily Collins from her role as Snow White in 2012’s Mirror Mirror or as Sandra Bullocks’ daughter in the Blind Side.  She is also set to play Clary Fray in the much anticipated film adaption of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.  The movie is set to be directed by Burr Steers who was the Director of 2009’s 17 Again and 2010’s Charlie St. Cloud.  Read more at the link below to the article at Variety, along with lots of puns about zombies and the movie raising from the dead.

Pride Hard Stage Show?

Pride Hard Play

Since twitter is all the buzz with the kids I was planning on snagging a separate twitter handle dedicated only for Pride Hard material.  Naturally the first that would come to mind is @pridehard but alas it was all ready taken.  For shits and giggles I decided to check out what what was actually on the @pridehard hashtag and low and behold it is actually Pride and Prejudice Related!

This is the description:

“Rob Lloyd & Kelsey Gade recreate the action masterpiece DIE HARD in the style of Jane Austen’s timeless tome PRIDE & PREJUDICE”.

Awesomeness! Too bad it looks like this takes place in Australia but if they ever come state side you can count me in.  If i was going to lose the twitter handle @pridehard to anyone i’m glad its these guys.
