Oh the joys.....

Packing, it's one of those love hate relationships. I hate doing it at the time but then love it when its completed, that sense of satisfaction you get from accomplishing the seemingly impossible. Incidentally the same feeling you get when you play Tetris.

you may peruse my belongings.

Yup, you guessed correct, am moving again. This time we have to jump ship to another hostel because these guys are chucking us out. Am sure i've mentioned it, they "won" a contract to house 70 Papua New Guinea students and the contract means that the whole place has to be for them so we are getting the boot.

Weird to say the least, this hostels capacity is around 130 so there is plenty of room and it's not like Kylie and I are druggies or big drinkers but I guess "big" money speaks louder to business owners.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I've been working the day shifts for the past 3 weeks 10.30 till 6. Then yesterday I had to do some cover work and was working till 9pm. Turns out 90% of the people on nite shift thought I had left altogether. Communication seems to be a problem in this bar.

But they will see enough of me soon as I will be going back to nites. A new lady, a new full time lady, a new full time Australian lady will be taking over from now on. Am not pissed but I do have to get used to the stupid drunk people again.

Not much else to say today other than, have you seen a TV show called Breaking Bad? It is a must watch if your into things like Dexter or Sopranos.


I'll leave you to make what you will from this image. I will say however that it is a very smart show, well written and well acted. Very adult orientated subject matter, which makes it into my top 10 tv shows.

bye for now.

Aussie day!

SMOTHC - Superman 1979



All I remember is he can look through dresses and see pink panties. Why not look further Superman, it's obvious Lois is a bit trampy.

I watched the extended version with a whole 50 mins dedicated to Krypton and the fact its gonna blow up but Clarks sorry Kal-els father is the only super smart braniac scientist that can see it coming. The others must just be average run of the mill smart scientist.

side note: Aliens cloths glow like they been raving under blacklights.

Sadly this is where the movie takes a leap from the good to bad, with the introduction of Lex Luther and his henchman to the absurd turning back time by flying round the earth so fast that the rotation reverses. Physics 101 of course!

I used to think this movie was the bees knees, honestly I loved it as a kid and held it in high esteem until this 3rd? rewatch, Now at 25 I see it for what it is.

Am sad, I don't wanna watch the sequels now incase they are shit too. Maybe I'll put the 2nd one on and realise Ursula is not a sexy independent woman but a feminist man hater and that Zod is actually only scary because of his beard.

Not that my rating will change it's rating on IMDB but I will give it 6/10, only because Christopher Reeves and Marlon Brando's stellar performances.

Other news:

It's Australia day today. My understanding of it is, it's a celebration of the day Captain Phillip bumped his boat into Sydney Cove thus starting the great age of singlets and thongs. I've also learned that it was not called Australia until 1826, a whole 38 years after it was "discovered". Here was me thinking it was just another excuse for the Aussies to drink beer and have BBQ's.

Aussie beer garden...


Last week in this Hostel, gotta be out for Wednesday. There may be an options of house sharing with a few other inmates. Did I ever mention that this hostel is an ex Mental asylum, it's true back in the early 1900's. Room 4 used to be a morgue!


I bought a new toy! A tablet, na no iPad for me, Apple are too restrictive. I opted for an Android the Motorola Xoom to be precise. Got it on sale and IT IS AWESOME. So smooth and intuitive, it's running Honeycomb but I believe it will be getting an update to ICS very soon and then it will be epic. SPent too much money that day so have to be a good boy for a wee while now. Well except for today cus I need to buy new headphone and a mem card for the the thing.

Speak soon TTYL.....

SMOTWC and other goings on.


Batman 1966

Holy turd of a film Batman!

I watched this in 10 min segments, not because that's how they are split on YouTube but because it's so excruciating to watch. The best thing I can say about this movie is that indeed it does end.

It's camper than Ricky Iglesias rind-stone encrusted leather man thong! But we are talking about a movie from 60's America when everything needed to be in bright colours to hold the attention of the tripping hippys.

The crappy outfits were outdone only by the seriously cheesy dialogue. Some examples include

"How should I have known that they would have a can of shark repellent spray with them" Yeah you and me both Penguin. This not only demonstrates the dialogue but also the crazy plot.

"wait it happened at sea, C for cat woman!". If ever there was a reason to use OMG! this is surely it. This is Boy wonder "figuring" out the Riddlers "clues".

It wasn't all grade A Camembert, if you could watch it without squinting you could make out the sub-plots, well sub-plot, where Robin's jealousy of Bruce Wayne getting his way with a pretty Russian was disguised  as common decency. Essentially he turned off the pervy tv in the Bat Mobile.

90% of the budget I would say went into the vehicles, not unlike the modern retellings. Aside from the Bat Mobile there was the Batcopter, Batboat and the greatest of all the Batcycle. You just have to stick a bat shaped fin on it and its a Bat Vehicle.

On my own personal scale I'd give it 3/10 only because it made me laugh so hard at the super cheesy acting and dialogue.

Sorry bout that. Nothing pisses me off more that a shitty movie.

Worked Monday to Friday last week. *MONIES!* So with Saturday off Kylie and I decided to get a bit of culture by going to the Museum of Tropical Queensland. I actually quite enjoyed it, it had quite a few exhibitions to peruse.

H.M.S. Pandora
The Plight of the Aborigines
Bugs and other crawlys
Corals

A little old school bondage.

Minding my own business and then BAM! outta no where attacked by a stuffed Duck. 

This explains it, cus i couldn't be arsed

Umm...yup!

Just after, I panicked a little. Needed to get out!!!!

engrossed by a little informational movie

the frown on walking also.
Finished off a day of brain expansion by going for a wee bite at the place I work. Can anyone say staff discount? :)

Back to work tomorrow. Lunch service again this week, with a new menu to learn. Oh God wish me luck, it's taken me a month to learn the current one.
