SC Album Review 2

Goldfrapp: Supernature

I bought it for the 1st track on the album, Ooh La La. First impressions are that the rest of the album doesn't live up to this song. I'll listen to it properly over the course of the week and get back to you.

SC Album Review 1

The Magic Numbers

Just bought Debut Album from The Magic Numbers.

Brilliant! Excellent melodies, lyrics and songs. It's put me in a good mood.

My advice...

Buy a copy today, or burn a copy off my PC.


Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

BT are fcuking sh!t

I took the morning off so that the Sky 'engineer' could come round and install Sky (what else would he install?).

A couple of weeks ago I had to do the same so that BT could do their work (£70 + Line rental). This was essential so that the Sky could get registered. I was informed that everything was okay. Not needing an actual phone I didn't test it myself.

However the Sky box couldn't find a BT signal.

Fucking shit fuck bollocks wank cocks cunt!

And what makes it worse, is that their faults line is all automated so I can't shout at some poor pleb at BT.

Family Guy

My brother's lent me a few DVDs

The highlight is

3.5 series of Family Guy (half of the fourth)
1 film of Family Guy
1 special of Family Guy

You will remember, Watson, how the dreadful business of the
Abernetty family was first brought to my notice by the depth which the
parsley had sunk into the butter upon a hot day.

Moving house

I helped my brother move into his new house yesterday.

All I had to do was help him shift a TV, washing machine and a piano. Very sore now. But got a free meal out of it so I can't complain.

Girls are like pianos. When they're not upright, they're grand.

Windows Airlines:
The terminal is very neat and clean, the attendants all very attractive, the
pilots very capable. The fleet of Learjets the carrier operates is immense.
Your jet takes off without a hitch, pushing above the clouds, and at 20,000
feet it explodes without warning.

Makes me sick on so many levels.

Well on perhaps only three levels. But i'm still sick.

- Firstly for the couple wanting Robbie Williams played at their wedding
- Secondly for the PC brigade getting their noses involved.
- Then to top it all off they opted for Shania Twain

What's the world coming to?

I think that all good, right thinking people in this country are sick
and tired of being told that all good, right thinking people in this
country are fed up with being told that all good, right thinking people
in this country are fed up with being sick and tired. I'm certainly
not, and I'm sick and tired of being told that I am.

Warning to geeks everywhere

Ben and Ian especially. You've been playing far too much console games over the past few days. Give your brain a rest.


Mi estas komputilisto : I work with computers.

Afternoon session

One of my bosses left yesterday so I joined him for a quick lunchtime drink to send him off. 7 stelwaars later I went home.

I came in early to do the work I was supposed to do yesterday and perhaps take the flak for having an 'extended' 'lunch'. But they didn't even notice we'd gone.

Should have had a lye in.

P.S. Stelwaars IV: Revenge of the Alcohol, George Lucas's latest venture. After the tyranny of the Empire and the party on Endor. Luke, Han and C3P0 try and figure out what actually happened during the festivities.

SC Movie Review 1

Man on Fire

Plot: A former assassin is hired to protect the daughter of a rich family in Mexico City. All goes wrong when she is kidnapped and in the bungled ransom payment ends up dead. Our hero Denzel does his duty and goes for lots of hurty payback.

I'm a big fan of Denzel and he certainly didn't disappoint here. Lots of action, bit of humour and lots of tasty revenge. I felt the story setting part at the beginning went on far too long which meant for an overly long film.

Overall, good film, watch it.

Rating:4 potatoes

You've stood the test of time, but time is a match for no piece of text

Last homerism.

Homerisms(120) = "Lisa, two wrongs DO make a right."

Watch this space for more interesting quotes although they will never beat the quality that is Homer

Vodka jelly in a stella

We went to an under 35s reinsurance drinks party last night. Good fun.

Found a new drink too. Pint of stella with a glob of orange vodka jelly.

Mmmmm! Disgusting!

Homerisms(119) = "A gun is not a weapon Marge, it’s a tool. Like a butcher knife, or a harpoon, or ... or an alligator."

I went to the gym last night forgetting that i'd given blood earlier in the day. I lasted a whole 5 minutes. Dumb ass!

I actually got a certificate and a pin thing as it was my 10th time. Although saying that, it's my 10th time in London, they lost my previous details. Dumb asses!

Woke up stupidly early this morning so went for a 45 min swim. The place was empty so might try it again.

How's the cycling going Ben?

Andrew WK / Meat Loaf

Can you tell the difference?

New song from the man that is ROCK.

Homerisms(117) = "It's better to watch things then to do them."

Can you see the tumble weeds rolling by?

Where is everyone?

Am I the only one out here?

Come on guys, you must have something interesting to talk about...

Or at least something to talk about if you don't get up to anything interesting.

Ross update 4

Good news.

For those that don't already know, but i'm sure that most of you do by now. Ross is now back at home. So if you want to go and see him he's now back at Manitoba.

First Brighton, then the world

I went to Brighton this weekend.

Pretty good laugh. I met up with a few of my old uni mates, including Robyn. It was good to see them all. Some of which I haven't seen for over 3 years.

Hopefully it won't be 3 years till the next time.

They've all been away travelling at one time or another and absolutely loved it. I'm seriously tempted to try and get a sabbatical from work and take a couple of months away.

You can get round the world tickets for about a grand.

Homerisms(115) =

Lisa: Dad, we did something very bad!

Homer: Did you wreck the car?

Bart: No.

Homer: Did you raise the dead?

Lisa: Yes.

Homer: But the car's okay?

Bart & Lisa: Uh-huh.

Homer: All right then."
