In our house…

There is no Gangnam Style. There is only… Minecraft Style! Seriously, this is all the boys talk about at the moment… I know it’s a bit “last year’s fad”, but the parodies have definitely been far more interesting than the original song. And Minecraft is their thing… Though on the other hand, Will did mention ...

Watching good old things

Watched Return of the Jedi with (mostly) Alex this afternoon. Will and Lachie drop in and out for it, but it’s Alex that really loves this stuff. He’s there for every bit of action, every explosion and every exciting battle. Let’s just say it “moves” him! He really loves to be scared, loves to be ...

And a good thing that week is over, next stop that term over!

Only four days work this week, but that was quite enough. Nothing went wrong per se at all, but it all just seemed so long and so tiring… And there’s still one more week left till end of term. Much longer this year, and end of term will mean another trip to Sydney. That should ...

TV Piracy isn’t what it used to be

The online environment for TV viewing has changed considerably in quite a short time. And I won’t lie, I used to download a lot of TV — never films or movies — and while I still do a little bit, I’ve largely stopped now. There’s a few reasons for this. One, I guess I’m just ...

Not fun

Seeming not a day for good stuff. Some grim, unpleasant articles about education this morning, and politics is bad in so many ways, and work can be grinding at times when nothing works. But then I got some freelance work for the afternoon, which is a good thing, but again tiring. All makes the day ...

The Game Returns

A welcome return for Game of Thrones tonight, starting up its third season. One of the flagship HBO shows, it’s on Foxtel here, but thankfully and smartly it’s on iTunes now, with the season pass being less expensive than the DVDs would be in six months. In other words, very much worth the purchase. It ...

April Fools everywhere

April Fools Day is fast becoming the day to hide from the Internet. Google alone does about four different pranks across their properties, which though often funny, are never particularly believable. Everywhere you look, sites do mystery redesigns, Tweets are loaded with jokes, and every forum post has to be re-examined for the likelihood it’s ...

The return of Doctor Who

Within hours of the UK airing The Doctor is back on ABC! Very much good fun, with Matt Smith bounding around as goofy as ever, and his new assistant Jenna-Louise Coleman is appealing, and her character may just be the most fascinating companion yet. The storyline was the typically amusing monster thing, with just the ...

Another classic to tick off the list

Finally I watched The Godfather Part II tonight. I’d tried watching it (again on TV) years ago, but had started late and fallen asleep half way through. Since it started late tonight I was worried this might happen again… but I’d say I’m older and wiser now… It’s really a very good movie, a deep ...

So it’s a Good Friday…

And I get to get up really late, listen to the radio, enjoy good weather with the boys, not have to worry about much, watch some footy on the NRL app, generally just have a good time, as a public holiday should be. Then there’s this whole “well if you really believed them you’d be ...
