BEST OF JANUARY 2K13

Yes I’m still here aliens of the future who may or may not read this.
Now is the time for the gears to shift a little bit more in this world where moments of our online lives are more instant and throwaway on Facebook.
Also as I get older things have gotten a little less exciting. That’s not to say I don’t have fun and many interesting moments to me, it’s more they don’t hold as much significance for me to share unless it’s a photo, which is an element of Facebook which does seem more accessible than the words.

Also with me being 38 years old I quite like just sitting down watching telly, reading or chatting to my wife and resting from work which is getting more intense lately.

But every month I will produce my lists and who knows every so often I might have the incline and time to throw in a rhyme about something worth a dime :)

So now let’s commence:

Best best of album
Barry Manilow - Ultimate Manilow (1973-1985) I was only after one song but decided to get the whole album and actually love it.

Gig of the Month
Danny & Ben from Thunder - 14th Jan @ Rescue Rooms. A nice evening of acoustic tunes and fun banter.

Cinema film of the Month
Django Unchained - Funny, violent and very Tarentino.

Film on TV
Safe House
You Don’t Mess With The Zohan
Columbiana
Hugo

The Debt was a good thriller
Wanderlust - Paul Rudd & Jennifer Aniston in city people join a hippy commune comedy. A lot better than its 5.6/10 imdb score I thought.

DVD watched
Dark Shadows

Tupperware box (to put my dinner in)
