Batmans Returns... well, erm.... Begins!

Story from MSN today - A lot of people attached to this project.

Dark Knight Falls on Oldman
Gotham City is starting to look a lot like London. Not only is UK-born Christian Bale set to don a cowl and utility belt to play the lead in "Batman Begins," but now fellow countryman Gary Oldman has signed on to play stalwart cop Lt. James Gordon, says the Hollywood Reporter. Oldman is the newest member to join the ever-expanding Caped Crusader cast. Also on board are Michael Caine as Alfred, Liam Neeson as Bruce Wayne's mentor Ducard, Morgan Freeman as businessman Lucius Fox, Ken Watanabe as villain Ra's Al Ghul, and Katie Holmes as Rachel, a childhood friend of Wayne's. The Christopher Nolan-directed flick, which is currently filming in Iceland, is expected to hit screens in the summer of 2005.

Quick IQ quiz anyone?

This quiz is more than likely waaaaay out but even so it's worth doing.

It's not easy but you MUST do it without paper or a calculator and as quick as you can... I scored 125 (above average IQ!)

Tricolor me blind!

Remember that huuuuge transport ship that sank in December 2002? Well it's been raised and scrapped - with the 2800 cars aboard!

Have a look here - it's facinating stuff!


I have recently started driving a RHD car again.. I live in the UK and 99% of cars here are RHD. That's simply because we drive on the left hand side of the road (so RHD puts you in the middle of the road).

I cannot stand it. Really.

I've been driving LHD for a few years now in various guises. Be it the DeLorean or my 911 or a friends Yank Tank. I've gotten used to it and I now thoroughly enjoy the experience. Sure it has it's "moments" (car parks for instance) but generally it's great fun and, quite different from the norm.

But since the 911 was requiring it's own en-route petrol tanker I've had to revert to a "cheap" car to get to work in (and pretty much everything else unfortunately). It's RHD and it's not fun.
There's nothing wrong with the car - my Calibra Turbo is also RHD and a lovely car - but it's not the same.

Probably just me being weird I suspect.

A site dedicated to beaten up cars. Interesting to see what people are willing to drive these days.

Check this out. It's a VWVortex link.

Corvette C6 Convertible...

Here they are:

I won't bother hyperlinking them or uploading them - they're only pics. But it shows how attractive that yank tank really is. I'd certainly "pimp" it!

02-03-04 or 02/03/04 or...

That's a red letter date in history. It'll never happen again! :oD

It's cold outside...

It's cold (incredibly) and dark. Only one light is on - other than this monitor of course. The TV blaring out behind me. Star Trek VI - The.... UndiscoveredCountry (as Kirk would put it) is on Sci-FI at the moment; arguably one of the greatest Trek movies ever made (beyond "KAHNNNNN!!!!!" of course).
I should really be in bed but I cannot bring myself to lock up and get ready for bed... but my eyelids bear heavy on my eyes and there is no longer any coffee in the pot.

These dark nights are kinda cool. I can be snug inside with the entire electronic world right in front of me. It's very busy yet unbelievably lonely. Like spreading out the UK's population across the entire globe. I can surf without anyone's knowledge and be as interactive and busy as anyone else online at the same time.
I'm sure there is a double meaning in the internet. Something profound I just haven't worked out yet.

Captain Scott is none too pleased. His engines are working perfectly - but Starfleet are being told otherwise.

There is a picture here (well, 2 actually) of myself and Gemma. We're both smiling. I look like I've just been told to "smile". Gemma has one of those natural glowing smiles... it's very attractive. I just look an idiot. But that's my purpose - it makes her look even better I suppose.

Kirk is fighting a rather large alien. His "knee" is slightly more sensitive than mine.

I wonder. I wonder whether inanimate objects have thoughts. Nah. Wouldn't that be weird though? I bet my cars would be bitching at how cold it is outside. I am. I think - and have been told as much - that I shouldn't be allowed to sit and think. My brain does some (in my eyes, wonderful) strange things when left to it's own devices. I wonder about wondering. I try to unravel the things I cannot even comprehend. It's fun.

Kirk is planning his escape....

I've been quiet

Because I'm bored silly. I can't even think of something useful (or otherwise) to say. Good isn't it.

Anyway - to celebrate this block of writing I bring you this - quite simply the silliest thing to come out of Japan. And that is really saying something I think.

My first anniversary!

In a little under 90 minutes I will have been seeing my wonderful Gemma for 1 year. A whole year!

I'm particularly chuffed as I couldn't have wished for anyone as special if I tried.

Here's to the next year - may it be even better than the last (and I have a feeling it will be!)
