I Want You Back

September 27, 2009

So as you can see I haven’t posted in a while, due to, among other things, my boring life and inability to effectively and interestingly convey my thoughts and actions. Chances are I will still encounter that problem but I shall persevere.

Last night, being the busy uni students we are, we watched a movie. It was going to be mainly a girls night but a couple of us guys, through different reasoning, decided to stay in. The outlook was bad from the very beggining. On the way to the video store words such as “fame” and “flashdance” were being thrown about. The signs were ominous. That wasn’t the only problem though. There was a bit of a conflict as to whether we wanted to watch classic original Fame or the 2009 remake, and they say uni students care about the real issues… As we took two cars, I went straight home resigned to the fact I would be sitting through two hours of dancing and after being told that “80’s chicks aren’t hot”, my mood hardly improved. At least I had my recently purchased 13 sour warhead lollypops to drown my sorrows.

When the movie was put in, to my suprise delight it wasn’t in fact some cheesy dance movie, but The Boat That Rocked.

I found it a pretty awesome movie. The concept of 10 guys at sea listening to the best music, and just having a good time was quite appealing. The soundtrack was awesome and a bit of sentimentality creeped in while hearing the likes of Hendrix, The Beatles and a dash of Motown too.

Whilst the plot and ending were a bit ridiculous, you learn to not really take movies with Nick Frost too seriously.

On another note, follwing a spur of the moment dare I am going to see how long I can go without my beloved fast food. The last time I tried this can best be described as a spectacular fail. On average I probably go like 5 times a week so this will be quite an entertaining struggle, but a struggle nonetheless.

Also next week I have some friends coming down to visit. I have been in Canberra for seven months now and they will be my first visitors, not that they should feel guilty or anything.

Until something interesting happens next or I can bothered to post something non-interesting I shall bid you kids farewell.

  1. I guess you’ll have something to post about to-morrow after you visit Maccas. Also, I totally stopped my car in your street twice, I think I even got out once. So what if I didn’t go inside, it’s still a visit…
