Frisky, Friday Frolykz..!!

Hello and good afternoon.

It gives me great pleasure to introduce our formidable Friday and beginning of the weekend thread.

Howabout we keep this thread GFC-free?

Let’s talk about some nice positive things; interesting books you might reading, DVDs, good food or wine (cue Miglo and Tom of Melbourne), recipes or whatever.

Last weekend we went to see The Watchmen at the movies. It was pretty cool but I kinda left still wondering what it was really all about.

Anyway, tonite’s viewing consists of Mirrors (with Kiefer Sutherland) and a cult horror “The Signal”

and I’m back on the chamomile tea…..

Trust everyone is keeping safe and well..


NSW – the assist China state.

Premier Mao Rees told NSW parliament last week:

There is no more important issue than investing in jobs for the future. We are experiencing the worst economic downturn since the 1930s. In the current climate my Government is doing everything it can to generate economic activity and jobs.

But reports today detail how NSW government contracts are going offshore quicker than 1-2-3 (or even ANZ)!


Flick Crit: Watchmen – Not Everybody Wants To Rule The World

Latest film review at Cinema Takes is Watchmen: Not Everybody Wants To Rule The World:

Who’s watching the Watchmen is one of its themes. Apparently lots of people are, if early box office is any indication.

Others can buy into the disputes between the filmmakers and purists of DC Comics about this story of comic book heroes. The graphic novel hasn’t been my preferred genre since the 1950s but I have enjoyed some of the film adaptations of the less well known super heroes and villains such as Sin City, V for Vendatta and Iron Man. Perhaps the best of the recent ones was Hell Boy.

If you’re tired of Batman and Spiderman retreads, then this could be the movie for you. If you’re a fan of the comics, then you might want to wait for an extended director’s cut due later in the year. Too much is obviously not enough for some people!
