And so I found another perfect post this month; this time over at Citizen of the Month. The post I nominated is called The Slumification of Kissena Boulevard in which Neil takes us on a tour of his old neighbourhood lamenting it’s demise (with some excellent photos along the way. It made me feel nostalgia for a place I’ve never been and anger that it had been allowed to get this bad when, although never easy, it could be helped. It’s a shame the old places never seem to survive. It was the first post this year to make me cry. I wish I could say more but the best thing to do is to go over there and read the post yourself… and then read the other nominations to be found over at Petroville and Suburban Turmoil!
Oh yes, I saw it tonight. Cloverfield baby! I went to the cinema on opening night and it would have to have been for something special (as the only thing that ruins a good film is, well, other people!) and boy was this something special. I’m going into no details (as I am sticking to my no spoilers allowed) but there wasn’t a single thing I didn’t like. Not a single thing. Will obviously go and see this again in a few weeks when there is no one else there to enjoy it more!
The trailers had me giddy before the film even started though. There was the Star Trek trailer ‘Under Construction‘ which gave me shivers, and another one for Jumper (I hate myself already for dribbling over this film) and then (Oh My God) an advert for the new season of Doctor Who!!!! (This link is to a video taken on someone’s phone and is terrible but chills baby chills!)
This was all after having a Philly Steak Wrap at Chiquitos so today was a very good day!
