15 Movies in 15 minuites.

This is shamelessly nicked, from a facebook thingy, and a mates blog. think of 15 films that have stayed with you, and why. It's harder than you think, but short.

1) One of our dinosaurs is missing. First film I remember seeing in the cinema. Cranbrook regal If I remember right.

2) Star wars. Nothing else before had quite this impact. Masterpeice.

3) Empire Strikes Back. Same reason.

4) Return of the jedi. (Look, this is not that lazy, ok...)

5) The Killing fields. - the most powerful film I have ever seen. Amazing.

6) Wild at heart. John Lynch, and Nic Cage, whgen he was good and talented. Great film.

7) Resovoir Dogs. - Quentin Tarrentino, and Nowhere near as violent as the media made out.

8) Lord of the Rings, the fellowship of the ring. Unbeleivabley good adaptation.

9) LOTR the two towers. See above.

10) LOTR The retuirn of the king. Yup, samr eason as 8 and 9.

11) Blues brothers. Dan ackroyd and john belushi at their funniest.

12) Rocky Horror Picture show. - needs no ezplanation.

13) Last tango in paris. Marlon brando in a very sleezy role.

14) The devils. Ken russell, Oliver read, and naked women...what else is their.

15) Beowulf and grendel. the danish version, not the more well known one. Just a much better film.

Article in guardian online.

Read this article this morning: and feel I need to share it on here. WHY? Because it is probably the most inaccurate piece of gobshite this side of the daily mail. Do we Facebookers, etc have freinds as people we don't actually know? Look at your list, |I am sure that as with me, the vast majotity are people that you have met, either old faces from school, work etc, far flug family members or new freinds.those that I haven't met are freinds of freinds that share the same interests. It never replaces "real" contact, just enhances it when we are enable to be in their company. It really rplaces letter writing, - the contact, the sharing of the how are you, what have you beeen up to, is more immediate, and can happen more often, As a result, freindhips over distance are maintained and deepen. and it's cheeper than the phone

catch up.

Well, here I am once more, it's been 1two weeks since my last confession....

Harrogate was fantastic. The lack of funds did not spoil it for me, and was a great experience, and one I will do again next year.
I have started to write my novel...It is taking shape, and the plot is evolving as I have more ideas. I think It is good idea, and will see if I can carry it throgh, 6,000 words in, and 90 odd thousand to go...tall order , but lets see what happens.
What else is good....Well, May well have a new woman in my life, lets just say that it is going well with her at the mo, and that is suiting me well. Sooo is all well in Ronnie land, or is their clouds forming?
Sadly, yes their is. Work looking shakier by the minute, and The kids situation , well, I await sept 18th with baited breath, hopefully, will go in my favour, but we will see. Also, Money is tight, and I still have the limbo feel that I have felt ofr months. I need to sell the house, I need to just get out of here, but I can't, because SHE won't give me permission. grrr.
Sod It, let's end on happy thoughts, I am going to try and fill this a bit more with other stuff, so you have been warned......
