A quick round-up of various oddments:
So I went to see V for Vendetta last night. It was really, surprisingly, good. Go see. Though I am glad that James Purefoy wasn’t in it, because watching him, but all dressed up in a mask and cape would have been frustrating.
Thats all beside the point. The point is, Stephen Rea. Great actor, always interesting to watch. And he was really great here. I haven’t seen a lot of his films. He is in a lot of smaller, interesting flicks. but everytime I’ve seen him, he has always given a great performance.
Also, got my hair cut. Finally. Been thinking about it for ages and ages. But didn’t know what to get done. In the end I just got it chopped to around the shoulder, and slightly layered. I can wear it loose again. When it gets long I generally just tie it back all the time.
to know your favorite sex scene from a film (we might do books next month). Now, having said that, I’m more interested in seduction than full-on schlong. In other words, NO PORN.
Every year around this time the same phrase begins to show up in my stats; what is the rugby triple crown? I should come up with this stock post and repost it every year, wouldn’t that be amooosing. Or not. As the case may be.
See how I didn’t even answer the question, I’m mean like that.
Because mÃ© fÃ©in agus NM were at the kino we didn’t see BSG this week. Now we’ll have to wait till the repeat on the weekend, so on Fri or Sat I’ll need a reminder.
Also must watch VM tonight. Got the latest episode from d’internet on Monday, and tonight there is nothing on the telly, nada, so I’ll have the whole evening to view.
There is a statue on O’Connell St, well there are many, but this one in particular always strikes me as a little odd. Not the statue itself, which is a perfectly ordinary representation of William Smith O’Brien, only the inscription reads something like, “William Smith O’Brien, found guilty of high treason and sentenced to death.”
And that is it. Nothing about what he did, or why a traitor has a statue. Of course, this is Ireland, so obviously he was a traitor from the POV of the “evil English” but I still think it is funny to have a statue to a traitor without any reference to his actions actually being “for the good of the irish nation,” or other such explanation.
