Gig of the Month
Reef was chilled
Madness was ska-pop madness
Skin finished their 18 month final comeback on a high. As good as they’ve ever been. Great rock, great voice, great gig.
Cinema film of the Month
Meet The Parents: Little Fokkers was as equally as good as Harry Potter and the Penultimate Of Doom but neither were fully breathtaking.
Film on TV
Jennifer’s Body was enjoyable teenage fun.
The Informant was interesting background telly.
Four Christmases was the usual Vince Vaughn comedy with the odd touching moment. Nice cast and enjoyable.
Best DVD bought
Dead Snow - A Norwegian film about Nazi Zombies in some snow. A few classic horror clichés but I thought it was worth the watch and worthy to be on my DVD shelf :)
I might e able to get one read at the airport in a couple of days maybe.
The nose trimmer I got for Crimbo (Although I've still time to add something else before the end of the year) - Which is of course the ENGAGEMENT RING :)
January has 16 days at work, and possibly 0 gigs. But a lot more changes :o
