i use it way to much

Epic… Its a word I use quite often, frankly to much really. But it has been a good week to use the word epic. I saw Dark Knight on Wednesday night, and that my friends is a movie that deserves the word. But what was also Epic was the race last week on Top Gear. Wait im using it to much again…

Anyway back to Dark Knight. Such a brilliant movie. Now I was not expecting much going in. I mean look at Batman Returns or Spiderman 2 or any other Sequel to a big movie. Usually pretty lame. But this was great. The acting was brilliant, the suspense was continuous, many a time during the movie was I thinking, wow what an ending, for it to continue… fantastic!

I have to admit with all the media attention coming up to the release about Heath Ledger this and Heath Ledger that, he did well. His take on the Joker was pretty good to me. His laugh reminded me so much of Jack Nicholson BUT his potrayal was nothing like it. It was like the comics, dark, sinister and very very evil. Loved IT!

anyway some big weekends coming up, Not long till my birthday (like 10 days i think) but I have a weekend down the coast first which should give me some enjoyment for what is usually one of the crappiest days of the year for me (i never have a good birthday). Also have the Ekka a short while away and I still wanna know how my photos went!

anyway Game is starting. Might throw some funny pics up here tomoz after tommorrow nights stupidity :D

the warmth!

I can understand why the mexicans down south (reffering to the victorians) head north during winter. Cairns was AWESOME! 27 degrees during the day, the warmth was bliss. Got to laze about in the sun, on the beach (well i didnt, the others did, i just stood around taking photos). But it was so good! I loved it. Driving the tarago wasn’t to bad!

Took max with me so he got a lot of photos taken. Check out the photos section and you will see some good ones.

But tonight I have found my weakness. Its cheap DVD’s. I seriously have a problem. I just saw all the dvds I own, and its WAY to many. I have half filled my 1 metre high dvd rack, i now have the back half to go. BTW the front probably holds about 80-100 dvds cases. I just bought the following tonight for $204

Season 1,2,3,4 Macgyver
Season 1 The Unit
Season 1 Entourage
Who Framed Roger Rabbit
The Recruit
28 Days Later
28 Weeks Later
The Simpsons Movie
Remember the Titans

Pretty good bargain considering the Macgyver Seasons are 6 dvds each. The only thing i wanted was The Unit season 2 and then i would focus on Entourage later. Not a bad haul really. Now to worry about working some more to recover those costs!

Winter Has Arrived…

Dear god its cold. I am sitting here at 9:30 at night almost shivering its so damn cold. Tonight as I sat on the station almost a frozen solid block I thought back to the last time it was this cold, and its been a while.

Last year it was not that cold, but I have a feeling this year will be. Its only early july and we still have that bitter cold of the Ekka to come. How damn cold every year the ekka is. You sit at night in the stands wanting to just die from the cold, hanging onto a warm coffee or guzzling down a dagwood dog to stay warm, but you dont care because thats how it should be.

Well at the moment, I want the ekka to be here cause it feels that cold at the moment. The westerlies were up tonight, and it was bitterly cold. It might have been mother nature telling me something. Me I thought it was karma for something. The one day i wear a long sleeve shirt, and think to myself, I wont need the big jacket today ill just wear the vest.

IDIOT!!!! It was so so cold. But i guess you have realised that since this whole post you have read has been one big whinge about the cold.

But HELLO CAIRNS! 25 degree warmth during the day. O I CANT WAIT!
