Now that's a COD Piece

Now that’s a COD Piece

I have been rather busy so i thought i would update. South African Aliens, Sharon Stone, Birthdays, Torchlight Rockband and orgasms. You can put that list in any order you wish for your own amusement.

It has been quite hectic since the month or so since the last update. I finally turned 26 and had a great birthday, on the actual day Ian came round and we messed around on Rockband 2. Ian singing Losing my religion by R.E.M is a sight to behold. Then on the Saturday night we all went out for a Chinese meal and a few drinks. All good.

Went to see District 9 if you have the chance to see it i really think you should. I didn’t even know the film existed until Troy said he was going to see it so with no real expectations or knowledge it was great. I was surprised how much more i enjoyed a film knowing nothing about it, not even the basic plot or trailer. Go see it, it is a definite bluray purchase for me.

Speaking of bluray i finally got The Quick and the Dead (Trailer Above), going to watch it tonight me thinks. Along with Changeling which arrived in the rentals. Got some more really cheap DVDs too thanks to Mr. Recession; The Big Lebowski, The Royal Tenenbaums and Igby Goes Down. I also got Shortbus:

I rented it once because i like arty indie films that no one has heard of. It was a collaborative film where the actors and directors helped shape the story a bit like Hit Record but just plain explicit. The story is a bit like a 18 version of love actually.

Torchlight came and went and what was going to be a party ended up being me, Mark, Ian and Laura playing Rockband all night. Good times had by all i think. Then this Friday went out for a few games of pool and a drink, next Saturday though is going to be fun i think.

Troy is going to 18 so i will be taking some pictures of the festivities should be a good night.

Today i ordered the 250gb Xbox 360 Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Elite from game. They are calling it the super elite which is just stupid. Only getting it because the 2 xbox’s i have are chugging away on their last legs so sorry to the poor sod who buys my traded in 20gig premium refurb.

Well i think that will do for now i can’t really be bothered to write anymore, autumns crappy weather usually gets me updating more often but it’s quite warm today so this is all you get. Go see District 9.

Hey big spender!

Two Sundays in a row where i feel a bit ropey. Is it age or Strongbow. Apologies, expensive months to come and too much good stuff coming up. What is a boy to do?

First off I need to post an apology… for my harsh comments in last months post.

Sam said “if I go anywhere it will be Toast” he never turned up… git.

I later found out he was on the other side of the dance floor and we never saw him. Now he has gone to London and will probably never see him again. I will put this in my regrets folder. It’s an imaginary thing don’t worry, I don’t have room for a real one GAHYUCK LOLZA!

Enough with that crap and onto the actual update. I am now 25, nose hair, a receding hairline and death await. On the bright side i will never get id’d again. Also I like being older it’s good I don’t know why. Didn’t do anything really on the actual day as no one had any money so we had a nice Chinese Meal and played some pool. I won a drunk bet of something like £24.98 wining a game of pool for money was really hard, too much pressure.

Presents included some questionable wrapping paper, a pack of cards, a game I refused to play, 2100 Microsoft Points and some money. It was a good birthday and started off my holiday nicely.

Didn’t really do too much on my hols as I was working through some of it doing website work. However I went bowling and saw a surprisingly good comedy called “Step Brothers”. Went to the torchlight rented some great films, played some great games and generally had a good time.

All my brick stuff arrived and now has its own scrapbook section. The German poster is great I could get an unfolded one for £30 quid but the £1.50 version is good enough. Also i went on the Directors forum and showed off the collection and Rian (The Director of Brick) replied.

“Wow, nice stuff – and I’ve only seen about half of it. Wink.” – Rian Johnson

Is he taking the piss? I don’t know at any rate it’s nice to go on there and get a response. He actually answers questions about the film it’s good stuff.

The rest of the year is looking to be awesome entertainment wise, with new seasons of TV shows and a shed load of games coming out i can’t wait.

I have pre-ordered far too much and it will all be coming out at the end of October and early November. I also have to spend a couple of hundred quid on fillings on the 31st of October too, and i have my tax return to do. I need to try get some more website work together if i want to have some money to pay bills.

I pre ordered the following:

Fable 2 (24th October)
Fallout 3 (31st October)
Gears of War 2 (7th November)
Left 4 Dead (21st November)

Typing that out i just realised that i will be getting a new game every week for 3 weeks, argh!!!!

I got £5 off vouchers for them all and hopefully 11% quidco on each one so i have saved about £30 so one of those games is only really costing me £5. They are all huge games too so i doubt they would drop in price for a while anyway.

I also bought 2 more seasons of Frasier for 13.99 each, only 10 and 11 to get. There is a 1-11 boxset coming out before xmas but i got these all fairly cheap. I also got Stalker: Clear Sky, it’s the only game that i wanted to be delayed because what they released was unplayable, and in certain situations still is. It’s an excellent game though and recommend it to anyone, just wait until it has a few more patches under its belt before you get it.

I also got Castle Crashers, another bug ridden but excellent game. I am going through it again and trying to get all my stuff back intime for the patch. Playing any form of multiplayer wipes your stuff.

Well that is about it. Dexter and Heroes both start this month so i will be gutted waiting every week for the next episode. 24 TV Movie in November too.

It is all so exciting…

Until next time. BYE

(I would just like to let you know it took nearly 3 hours to do this little update because the entire news page needed redesigning just so i could put that scrapbook picture in the post. Just bad coding as usual)
