I bought a 6 man tent today. It's so exciting! I have it half set up in my lounge room, but it won't fit, I can't put the whole thing up. It's a 2 room tent and I LOVE IT!!! I got it with my birthday money, I just made up the difference. I am so excited by my new toy! I may even sleep in it tonight. I have one room set up. I'll have to post a photo when I take one!

Ok, some movie reviews!


What a brilliant film! I was sooo impressed! I went in there with pretty high expectations because I love Tim Burton and adore Johnny Depp. Johnny is my favourite actor of all time! He is so versatile and talented. And it doesn't hurt that he just happens to be the sexiest man alive. The film was so well done. Brilliant acting all round. The actors bought such life to the story. Not that it needs any help. It's a brilliant stage musical in it's own right. The way Burton brought it to life on the screen was inspired. The unknown actors were pleasantly surprising. Talk about talent! I would suggest that Helena Bonham Carter isn't a great singer, but it hardly matters because she had so much depth of character. She isn't a terrible singer, but she certainly isn't a strong one, but her fullness of character made up for any lack of vocal strength. Alan Rickman is brilliant as the judge. His voice is just perfect for the role. And that kid? Wow! The lighting scheme fits perfectly, the songs were amazing and the acting was brilliant. I went out and bought the soundtrack the very next day and have memorised pretty much the whole thing! Go see it if you haven't already. 5 stars!

10,000 BC

Wow. So disapointing. I saw it this morning and I'm glad I didn't have to pay for it (Thanks Steve!). Slow, not much story, predicatble, cliche, need I go on? For a movie that's promo'd as having heaps of action, it has had hardly any. And the final battle scene? Totally lame. Some giant mamoths run down a ramp and a guy falls off a pyramid. And some spears get thrown. The end. Don't bother seeing it if you were going to. I am yet to see a good review and now I know why. Some really nice sweeping shots of snow covered mountains though. Pretty! But not worth 2 hours of my time. The acting wasn't particularly expressive either. And that old woman? What the? Kind of lame... 1 star.

Doesn't it just made you mad? The injustice in the world? The deliberate choices of people (after all, a company is just people making choices) that lead to death and poverty and misery? How can we live in a world where people can dismiss others as insignificant or just numbers? It really pisses me off! I just watched the film "The Constant Gardener", and while I know it's just a film, it's not too far from reality. Watch a film called "The girl in the cafe". Powerful stuff. We have the power to change things. Why does such multi-national tyranny still exist in a world where no one need go hungry, or lack basic medical care? Why are things still so shitty when they don't need to be? Why are we all so selfish?
