EDITED cause I am a total div who put down that a goal is worth two points, when in fact it is three. Which i totally know. I mean, duh! Of course it’s worth three points. What else would it be worth? Bank holiday tomorrow, but I’ll be working. Exam time means those students need the library open. They’d betterRead more

Silent Hill dir. by Christophe Gans
The phrase, based on a computer game don’t really inspire much confidence do they? And I’ve never played Silent Hill, but, you know, a creepy film. Sean Bean. Its free. I figured I’ll give it a go, despite the many bad write ups. And I’m glad I did, because while it was far from perfect it was still an entertaining,Read more
She thinks I’m the renaissance. I had to go along with all this reclusive genius crap. She going to be very upset when she finds out I’m just a reclusive wanker.
There are many little things running around my head. Like Black Books. My dislike of labeling. The sunny weather. The fact that I was stoopid enough to record the brand new Sharpe programme on ITV over the weekend, but then forgot about the second part. How Veronica Mars is all exciting. How Bones although light and fluffy it is stillRead more
I’ve been watching your fingers Straddle the neck of your guitar Since you said they’d buckle Like the legs of a new born foal
Story bud? Or should that be buds? Who knows. Should one write to one person or to many? Sorta like the you or ye issue I suppose. I’ll solve it and say y’all. So, to recap these first few nonsensical lines, any news y’all? I’ve been in really good form these past few days. Not that I have wild moodRead more
Tristan & Isolde dir. by Kevin Reynolds
I’m going to admit that I was looking forward to this film. Which is strange, because I didn’t expect it to be good. I even expected to be annoyed by the Irish accents. And you know what, I was right. I enjoyed it despite its flaws. Of course its main flaw was Mr. Franco, or maybe it was just theRead more
During the final ad break of last night’s BSG a promo for Sky’s 10 o’clock news came on. It had one headline. Do you know what that was? The main news story was that Tom Cruise was going to… shock horror, a film premiere. And not just any premiÃ¨re, but one for Mission Impossible III, a film he starred in.Read more
ooops. As Carl kindly pointed out in the comments section Sunday and Monday have come and gone, so that means that Luna Nina said Rising :: Third :: Disruptive :: Surround :: Distant :: Suction :: Fried :: Nuggets :: Clip :: San Antonio :: So I sayRead more
Sunday morning dawned with blue skies and a trip to the christening. Then the aftermath and the chatting, the ooohing and awwing over the baby. But as the clock got closer and closer to 3 the boys began to look at their watches. The telly in the kitchen went on. There was a half argument over whether the build upRead more
American Dreamz dir. by Paul Weitz
The things you’ll do for family. Yes, I took my little sister and my cousin to see this horrible excuse for a film while I was in Sligo this weekend. It was truly terrible. The basic plot isn’t all that awful. There is a reality show with an unpleasant English host. There is an American president more than a littleRead more
What does one wear to a baptism? Cause that is where I am now at B#1‘s kid’s christening and not only are clothes an issue, but also gifts. What does one buy a 3 month old baby? Not like he’s going to remember is he? And seeing as I’m to be godmother there’ll be plenty of time for future purchases.Read more
Fred Vargas Trans from the French: David Bellos
Yes again a cover influenced purchase, so I am glad to report that a good cover can lead to a good read too. I really enjoyed this book. The language, characters and descriptions are fantastic, so I suppose a lot of praise must also go to the translater as well.
The book opens with the character of Lawrence Donald Johnstone, a Canadian in France to film wolves. He’s been away from his true love, grizzly bears, for far too long, and is rooting in in Mercantour. Not only for the skinny European wolves, although he has come to love them, but also because there’s a woman, Camille, in his life.
But when dead sheep, always ewes are found the locals begin to look at the “foreign Italian wolves” with suspicion and hate. They organise local hunts. Coming to believe that it is all the work of one, huge, extraordinary animal.Read more
