I have no real excuse for not updating, things have happened I could have posted about. Anyway I will just do a mahoosive update and hopefully it will move Bill Clinton off the homepage. Batman, Olympics, Music, Looper, Garden, Nexus.
The Olympics is finally over after 6 years of TWENTY TWELVE adverts, it was worse than the digital switchover. Bring on the end of PPI.
I was going to do a review of Batman Forever or whatever it was called, I can’t remember enough of it to do one, the caption was made for that review and to save an hour of searching for an image I thought I would borrow it. I really enjoyed it but it wasn’t as good as The Dark Knight and the ending pissed me off because it sets it up for an amazing 4th film that will probably never happen now. Twatman. 8/10 though.
I ended up getting a huge music collection for about 60 quid. It’s another 30 or so albums which I just never bought when they came out. An amazon retailer called “Zoverstocks” sells them for 1p plus £1.26 postage so I bought all the Stereophonics back catalog.. catalogue, some Snow Patrol, Kasabian, Jet, Massive Attack, Aqualung, Travis, The Verve, The Killers, Moby and more. Basically all the stuff I used to listen to at college.
As you know I am a huge fan of Brick, I first heard about Looper, Rian Johnsons’ new film a couple of years ago when he setup the Looper Blog and Hopefully this week I will be going to see it. Anyway I have a UK Quad Cinema Poster for Brick, it’s very rare and i snapped it up off Ebay and now I have done the same with Looper. This is also a Quad Cinema Poster and I think it’s the UK one. Both are going to get framed as the Brick one is starting to show its age and needs preserving.
Also over the summer I sorted the front garden out in the same style as the back. It needed 4 bags of slate and I still had the pebbles from last year. It took a couple of months because of the weather but it’s all done now so no more gardening!
I bought a Google Nexus 7 tablet, I waited patiently as nearly all tablets before it were just huge crappy messes with no battery life. I can’t live without it now and use it every day. I got the 16gb version but there is rumors of a 32gb version coming for the same price. I haven’t had a space issue but people who aren’t signed up to Netflix or anything like that might want the space to store tv shows or whatnot. It has also replaced my laptop as a business tool, unless i had to do some serious website work the nexus does everything and i can even hook it up to my phones internet, I invented that technology years ago i called it Waptop but never had the money to do it ah well.
