I Found My Rosebud.

I just bought Citizen Kane on DVD. If people ask me why, I say "because it's the Citizen Kane of movies."

So, a very happy St Patrick's Day to one and all.
Usually I use this day as an excuse to explore, and exploit, my Irish roots, and drink loads of Guiness. This year, however, I can't really be too much bothered, as I am contemplating taking it easy for the next couple of weeks. So instead I have decided to open the very nice bottle of Paddy I got for Christmas, have a wee drink, and watch the presumably terrible game between Malmö and FC Copenhagen.

Earlier I had to sit through Dreyer's Jeanne d'Arc which was by far one of the most boring films I've ever seen. i know it's supposed to be some kind of masterpiece, and there was some very cool camera-work and so on in it, but still I must honestly say, I didn't get it.

I know it's the wrong time to say it, but I saw Shrek 2 yesterday, and yes, it was pretty funny. It's definitely the first animated film I've ever seen to boast Eels and Nick Cave on the soundtrack.

GWAR at Voxhall? Count me in! Honestly, I think I would even go see Maroon 5 if they had made a DVD called Phallus in Wonderland.

Oh, and the Diamond Nights song Destination Diamonds is utterly brilliant, and should be available for download here.

I'm too old for this sh*t...

I seem to remember a not so distant past where football was about playing, scoring goals, winning and losing. This week super-ref, and McGyver impersonator, Anders Frisk retired as referee because of multiple death threats. Arsenal's Ashley Cole is still involved in some Watergate-esque shenanigans. And I think this article says a lot about what modern football is coming to.

I know this will make me sound like a bitter old fart, but whatever happened to players like Matthew Le Tissier, who stayed loyal to the same club, instead of chasing a bigger paycheck. And good old Gary Lineker who never got a yellow card in his entire career. Wouldn't it be great to reinstate a bit of dignity into sports?

Here We Go Again.

Not a lot going on here at the home office recently. We had a Tour de Chambre recently, where I held a reasonably succesful gangsta-rap theme (sippin on Gin n' Juice), which allowed me to play some N.W.A and Dr. Dre records.

We saw Sideways Monday night, which was thoroughly enjoyable, and which features probably the funniest male full-frontal ever. Because it was a special sneak preview we even had a glass of wine to go with the movie. Very nice indeed.

Tonight we'll go to the pub and watch the Arsenal game, so as always I'll be nervous and jittery all day leading up to the game.
In order to have something to do until then, I bought the new Paradise Lost album, and the new Doves ditto. But it's still too early to tell if they're any good. Doves, by the way, have a very fancy weblog thing going on on their site.

And speaking of Arsenal, well almost, Matt Damon turns out to be a bit of an Arse.

And Boy George shows us all how on top of current events he is. Like a wise man once said, they should call him GIRL George...

And just to show that two can play that game, I'll make a link to Aziz' weblog entry from November last year, which was quite funny.

And that's about it for now. Expect wild ramblings tonight if Arsenal succeed in their crazy task.
