the final curtain

so going to be a awesome day today

early start for the acts I like then mooching round enjoying the crowd the various air conditioned bars I have access to and a unhealthy dose of sunshine on my all too white self

shame I couldn't find a buddy who wanted to come or could take time off to take this extra ticket I have... guess someone outside is in for a treat

This must be my 16th BDO... such a shame there is no lily pad for my mid afternoon sit in the sun enjoying a cold one surrounded by the beautiful loons that populate our land

cheers

Blacked out to protest SOPA, a law which we don't get to vote for but which will effect our culture and economy

oh what a day

when young I used to smoke pot and listen to music like this thinking it was all very arty and intelligent

now I just think it fun

wonder what I'll make of it in another 20 years

Dreams Of Herge

I wandered along to the Tintin movie this week with young micarl and that big apple dwelling yid mischefski... and I was pleasantly surprised by the movie.

Outside of some classic hollywood action sequences which weren't needed (the action was fine but there were aspects that were just ott) the film stacked up real well.

Loved the 3d action... well perhaps I am biased by the fact I now have a mint set of new specs which were somewhat cheaper than my last purcahse in that realm - by some margin (possibly helped by the fact mischefski paid).

I really want to see it again now

Plus I really want to include the 3Ds "Drams Of Herge" youtub clip here but someone hasn't uploaded a pre-recored version, there is only a live one which isn't the correct intro to the song for them that ain't heard it before... so in the absences of music... here be the man himself

billions of blue blistering barnicles



I wish I could have taken me mum to see this film seeing as it was she who cultivated my love for Herge's Tintin comics.

I reckon she'd have thought it ace... and would have dug to post movie drinking establisment we went to as well

*shakes fist*
