Gig of the Month
Ben Folds Five
Europe were the best I’ve seen them.
It was a pleasure to see Romeo's Daughter again.
Magnum were brilliant, especially when supported by Trillium.
Cinema film of the Month
Silent Hill: Revelation had some pretty gruesome memorable monsters and was entertaining but Skyfall tops it because it’s Bond :)
Film on TV
Crazy Stupid Love
It's A Wonderful Afterlife
The Devil Inside
Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay
Crazy Stupid Love was a nice Steve Carell romantic (of sorts) comedy.
UK comedy Indian ghost film It's A Wonderful Afterlife was enjoyable.
Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay was as silly and funny as it was supposed to be, especially the customary Neil Patrick Harris scene.
Rewatched Film on TV
The Inbetweeners Movie
Electric Fire to replace the rabbit eaten gas one.
Cavity Wall Insulation to heat the house (although this was actually free)
Haircut to make me look sexy cool.
Silicon Oven gloves to make sure I don’t burn my hands taking all these hot nice things out the oven that I’m experimenting with nowdays.
December has 7 days off work, 6 gigs and some loft storage space conversion.
