My first idea for a blog, was to write about my favourite painting "THE SCREAM" - Then I thought about doing it about ALIENS (the movies)... (( don't worry - I will get to those two in later blogs)) but when I started to type the title, the number 007 gave me another idea... so, .... Cue the Bond theme music.

Bond and Beyond.
To this day a corner of my work area is dedicated to James Bond, with books, posters and die-cast models.
People always like to argue about who the best Bond was, most of them would say, the original: Sean Connery. For me, Timothy Dalton didn't quite hit the spot and Pierce Brosnan was okay, yet kinda forgettable, The more recent Daniel Craig outings have certainly been entertaining, but my heart will always belong to the spy of the 70s and 80s, with the humour and gadgets and of course who can forget the baddies like JAWS (Richard Kiel).
What will the future bond be like, will we get a black Bond, a female Bond? A black female Bond? Or is the whole Bond genre something we should just leave behind, to enjoy for what it was. Do we really need physical spies in the field, when basically our devices are doing the job.
