wow. just wow
Walk The Line
I only knew a little about Johnny Cash, and only knew Ring Of Fire and Walk The Line by him, which I think is a good thing. I had no expectations.
I thought it was great. Quite a sombre tale in parts, but the music was great, as was the acting. I'd only ever seen Jaoquin Phoenix in The Vilage, where he kinda had no room to act.
great movie, my dad is a huge johnny cash fan so i grew up listening to a lot of his stuff. Phoenix played it so well, just a great movie. Anyways...
The Dark Knight
Saw it last night finally. Absolutely amazing. "A little fight in ya? I like that" "Then you're gonna love me!" Haha, classic stuff made so much better with Bale's husky voice. Ledger did such a good job with the joker, very unique to the old joker done by Jack Nicholson. I really, really liked this movie. Bale and Ledger were fantastic. The gadgets were great, the action was awesome, and there was a good amount of humour. The only downer was whoever the minger is that played rachel.
Haha, yeah can't really do much now that the *something at the bottom of the slide* call has been used. That was pretty win
The same that would pay 20mil for an over the hill keane who's only goals last season were tap ins... I really don't think Liverpool is in any sort of financial trouble given there recent transfers, hopefully... =/ Then again, look at leeds a few years back, spent big on shit players...
In other news my beloved spurs have lost Malbranque to sunderland He was in great form at the end of last season, even though he was playing on the wrong side for most of it. Lots of losses for tottenham so far, and if Berbatov goes to man utd as speculated, ohhh dear. Can handle losing keane, but both our main strikers in the one season, come onnnnn. Bentley is a decent pick up, but he's not exactly top-quality
I hardly ever remember my dreams. Sometimes I will awake from one and remember it, and think to myself "I'll tell the gf about that one" then I won't remember it later on. That happens all the time. I can't remember the last time I remembered an entire dream =/
One that i have repeatedly though (which i always remember) is I'll be driving down a hill up to a stop sign and someone dear to me will be in the passanger seat. Its sometimes my gf, family members, good friends.. anyways i go to brake for the stop sign. No brakes. Truck. Last thing i see before i wake up is the passengers face with a look of terror.
Worst fucking dream in the world.I recently dreamt that I started school again, and I was happy to be back, but the school's interior had completely changed, so I was lost. But I was still happy. Guess that means I'm looking forward to come back, though I don't know if the changed interior means anything.
U just reminded me of a dream I have alot, the details are always scetchy, but I'll be either at uni or high school and I'll have an exam due in the next day which I haven't started. Or due that day which I didn't know about. I wake up freaking out thinking, SHIT better get to the library. Takes me a few seconds to come to my senses, 'Jim u dipshit u've been out of uni for like 4 years now'. haha.
Final Fantasy VII without a doubt Sadly enough i had a ps1.. I played VIII but didnt complete it.
Edit. Add to that Pikmin and Eternal Darkness
Ah I remember! I was 8 and it was Super Mario Bros. The Movie. Strangely I also remember eating cheese flavoured Hula Hoops.
that was the 2nd movie i saw couple years gap between that and my first experience with milo and otis
One time at reading festival we were all sitting about the camp drinking and having a laugh. For some reason there was this random bloke sitting with us. No-one really knew who he was friends with but, anyway, he was a little strange and quite reserved. He didn't say a word all night. Eventually the conversation led to talking about our dads and stuff, and my mate thought it would be friendly to ask this newcomer about his dad... "he's dead" were the only words we heard from him, and there was complete silence from about 20 people. It was so awkward. You never really know what to say when someone reveals something like that, least of all when it's a really weird stranger.
haha, ohhhhh dear. I have had so many awkward moments, somehow I just always get caught saying the worst things at the worst times. I have to gap it to bed now, hopefully I'll remember to come back to this thread after work tomorrow
I need to try a packet of these... Im putting it on my list of things to do before I'm 30. (Still 6 and a bit years to go, plenty of time)
milo and otis
Clearly they need a "don't evict any" option. I voted for chocolate, even though I've never heard of revals here in aussie land. Surely everyone can do without the chocolate flavour 'for a limited time'
Was anyone else strangely reminded of the X-Files game on the PS1 while going through the voting? :s
anyone else confused about a US recruitment tool being used for a Euro site
Actually a really good point. Same with like raisins technically....available elsewhere. Dunno where you can get coffe cremes, or orange cremes. Toffee are in Poppits. etc.
Is it in yet?
hahaha, seriously. all good captions...
The guy on top wears a black armband in memory of the guy who had his job only a few weeks ago...
do a good old fashioned rebuild. if that doesnt change anything, i'd say its as apple said.. prolly video card related.
The ones on ur deviant art page are significantly different.. much improved! Im using the 1900-1200 one as my background, scaled down. Even though my desktop is only 1680-1050, the picture looks much better without the right tree chopped.
Wow, you own serebii.net ? All this time and I've never known that. I've spent FAR too much time on your site crunching through move sets... so here's a
(I'm not big on comp. pokemon battles though, cos i CBF IV breeding, just wanted good type coverage in my team!)
Happy bday too btw, here's some misty cosplay we've all seen too often =)
Since when did we start liking coffee as much as the americans? Coffee is horrible.
I don't understand why people don't like orange chocolate much, I think it's great ^_^
it's a female thing, i swear it. I love jaffas (do u guys have jaffas over there?) but Im not a big fan of anything with a stronger flavour than those. My gf loooves orange chocolate though, esp the really strong stuff. So did my ex's :S
I think its the smell that drives me off coffee. I've never had a cup, im actually quite against the stuff, for no good reason, asides from teeth staining (but i drink bourbon and coke, so there goes that point)
Just not a fan of it, i got my girlfriend to stop drinking it too. She's always preferred tea though.
I'm not particularly bothered about this release but you have to wonder how many developers are going to hold back on their big games until wii motion happens next year. you may as well sell your wii for an x360 and rebuy it christmas 2009.
holy shut the fuck up already... there are clearly no games worth playing coming out for wii between now and then... what are you, 8? grow up, for christs sake. the e3 dissapointment thing has been and gone, and guess what, the other 2 companies were no better (if not worse). If you dont like ur wii, sell it, and get the hell out of here. Sick to death of every thread in here turning into an"omg e3 sucked" debarcle. Its ruining good discussion.
Also ReZourceman, that shit was funny 2 weeks before e3. It's time to stop.
/endrant"So Red Steel is a brand, and as with every brand we have, we now have to reach the top quality possible. What was missing was the preciseness of the sabre - and with this new device I think it will change the experience," he said.
Anyways, there's alot more that needs fixing as far as I'm concerned in this game. The precision of the sabre wasn't close to the worst of it. Trying to aim off the screen with guns was just impossible, especially if u needed to aim up higher. Jesus, just thinking about this game makes me angry! But, that said I'm interested in the sequel.
Whats Wrong With This Bloody Country?
alot? *starts a fight with the poms in the pub* ur cricket team is shit and ur rugby team gets carried by johnny wilkinson.
*mumbles more about how bad poms are at sport and goes back to his drink*
I remember a Tendo.Hello and welcome back! I do not know u though however....
I also remember a nick like urs from a long long time ago... Hmmm, did u post on C-E? (off-topic)
The Wii and ps3 are connected to my housemates HDTV and my gamecube to my SDTV in my room.
im signing off from this thread until ive seen the new batman movie
The Dark Knight Discussion (Spoilers)
in General Chit Chat
Finally got around to seeing this, there's one thing thats bothering me about it that has probably been answered in one of the 11 pages, but I'm feeling lazy. Can anyone give me a quick answer?
Why did batman tell gordon he was going to save rachel, and then go for harvey? So confused. I think I understand why, but that just sucks.
Also, no real hint at a sequel at the end of the film. I'm guessing there will be one right? :S
