I guess it’s also past due time for an instalment of “On the Entertainment Front”

Firstly & most importantly……


Matchbox Twenty have a new album coming out…..wohoo!  I was very keen on their last album though so I think I’m hoping more than expecting.  Not out until September though.

For some inexplicable reason you can pre order it on itunes.  I’ve pre ordered it on Amazon because I want to make sure I get a physical copy of the album.  But you’re pre ordering because there are a finite number of copies which clearly isn’t an issue with digital copies.  Seems a bit nonsensical to me.



Currently watching Abduction – Jason Isaacs dies :( .  It’s actually watchable so far.

Watched Real Steel – “Your asshole deadbeat awol father will shape up if only you can spend some time bonding”.  It had Hugh Jackman in it and he’s nice to look it but really rather…..meh

Paranormal Activity 3 – “It’s okay for your new boyfriend to put cameras in your and your young daughter’s bedrooms to video tape things that go “bump” in the night”.  Seeing as how it was supposed to be a prequel – seemed a bit odd they’d go with the weird coven thing when it didn’t come into the other 2 movies at all.

Having a bit of a hiatus from reading “proper” books and getting through my massive pile of romance.  I say pile.  They’re all on my e-reader.  Hundreds.  It’s great!  Really need to get back to my sci-fi and fantasy list though.  I was making great in-roads into it there.

TV Shows
Got into a couple of new shows which have subsequently been cancelled

Awake – Jason Isaacs ahh yum

Alcatraz – nice to see Sam Neill quite Losty though I thought

Terra Nova – Sci-fi with dinosaurs.  Also lead guy – yum (no I don’t watch TV shows based on how hot I find the lead actor)

Ooh found a brilliant New Zealand show called the Almighty Johnsons.  Basically the Norse gods decided to live as humans, got kicked out when Christianity came in and fled to NZ.  But they only get their particular god when they turn 21.  Now that I have come across it they will probably cancel that as well.

Final Destination….can’t remember what number.  Basically you’re going to die!
