Okay so, as promised an entertainment update!


Seen lots of films lately. However special mention to the X Files – I want to believe. I have to admit to being a little disappointed with it. With the stem cell research plot I kept feeling like I was being sold a political line, and I’m already pro stem cell research. It also seemed a bit odd that the church led hospital apparently had no problem with stem cells. Just a bit too angsty for my liking!

Really really enjoyed Get Smart and Hell Boy. Particularly in Hell Boy where they actually mentioned Northern Ireland, go there (well perhaps not really but pretend to) and then have a Northern Irish character. Course it was a Spanish director, who probably has a bit more respect than your usual “just get someone to put on a shitty accent” American director.


Currently reading Inkheart by Cornelia Funke which is the sequel to Inkspell and part of trilogy. They are books for kids, but really enjoyable. Also they’re translated from German. It’s basically about a girl who can read herself or people out of stories but it’s centred around the story in one particular book. A fairly original idea I think. There were rumours of a movie but I haven’t heard anything.

I finally managed to finish the TNG “A time to….” Series. Which is set just prior to Nemesis. So anything I read after that will be post Nemesis. They will probably write stuff pre Nemesis but I never feel inclined to read books that are set further back in the time line. I want the story to be moving forward.

I’ve also started with Star Wars again. So read the first in a post New Jedi Order, well I think it’s a trilogy (the Dark Nest) but the story continues into the next series. It’s not going to work out well for the Solo family L . SW is my next book actually!


Well in all honesty I haven’t bought any albums recently. Couple of individual songs that I like but no new albums coming out unfortunately. Well not that I know of. Hmm perhaps I should do a quickie shufty on Amazon. Nope, nothing, nada. Although there was one which was bought by people who bought lifehouse and matchbox twenty which I might have a listen to.
