Repetition is the reality and the seriousness of life.

7 October 2005

Yesterday was Serenity Day, as previews opened. Hence the non-posting, because I didn’t want to bore you all with my, “OMG! Serenity Now!”. But here I am posting about it again, and there is nothing you can do to stop me.
Mwha Ha Ha, and other such noises.

It was Screen One again, but hopefully it’ll have moved to screen 9, or screen 17 for the weekend, because those are the biggest, both in terms of screen size and also in terms of audience.

Anyways, the film was even better second time round. So if you are planning a trip to the cinema and aren’t sure what you want to see go see Serenity. I know, I know, Paul Walker and Jessica Alba in Into the Blue look really entertaining and that film looks just wow[1]

In other news, two weeks from now, thats Oct. 21st, will see the first test match between Ireland and Australia. Any guesses as to what sport they’ll be playing?

I’m sure you all guessed International Rules Football. This is a combination of GAA football and Aussie Rules football.This year’s series[2] is being held in Australia, with the Aussies looking to get a little revenge after last year’s defeat.

You’d think that, being professionals the Australian team would have the advantage[3] but the use of the round ball means that the Irish players are slightly more able to score three-pointers and even six-pointers.

Course, I really should be posting about the Rep Ireland vs Cyprus crucial world cup qualifier seeing as it is on over the weekend, but I’m almost resigned to the fact that we aren’t going to make it to Germany. I mean, we can still do it, I just don’t think we will, but I’m hoping to be proved wrong.

Besides, it is always good to promote the GAA, which is slowly gaining a small following in various places like Beijing, Dubai, and San Francisco. Of course most participants are Irish living abroad, but there has been a push to widen involvement.


  1. You don’t need an indication of my tone of voice for this do you?
  2. can you call two games a series?
  3. GAA players, both football and hurling are amateur, and so have full-time jobs, playing the game as, well a very involved hobby.

    Oh that's right, football weekend. I'll keep my fingers crossed for Ireland.
    And I said I'd try and go see Serenity, and I will. Try. ;)

    Glad you finally got to see Serenity again. My wife and I are taking a friend of hers tomorrow who hasn't seen it yet and I've gotten another girl at work who is going to borrow my Firefly disks, cram over the weekend, and then will go see Serenity. Yay, converts everywhere! This will be the third time for me and I'm really looking forward to seeing it again.:grin:

    I think it's always wonderful to see a movie the second time (or more) and find that you enjoy it even more. Nothing beats picking up on those little things you miss the first time around!

    If we need fingers crossed against Cyprus then we don't deserve to get through ;) But we will, of course, accept those crossed fingers nevertheless Anne.

    Carl it was even better the second time round, and now it is showing in screen 17, so celebrations :)

    I agree Livewire, and am a big fan of rewatching films. Hell, I'll even go see ones I didn't really love more than once if there is nothing else on.

    Serenity was so amazing! But that's not surprising. Joss is a genius :grin: I saw an advanced screening while I was in Vancouver this summer, but it hasn't opened anywhere near where I live. So go see it a few more times for me will ya :wink:

    I do have a ticket for tonight. But I got too comfy at home so I'm skipping it. I'll go tomorrow instead. Hey, I'm still helping the box office :)
