Babylon A.D. – 2008

Director: Mathieu Kassovitz

Starring: Vin Diesel, Michelle Yeoh (among others)

With action sequences that seemed cut together by someone who was not actually planning to watch the film, and an overall story that left you assuming the only hope for humanity were genetically engineered souls, this boiled down to two hours you will never get back in your life.

Avatar – 2009

Director: James Cameron

Starring: Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver (to name but a few)

“An intergalactic retelling of Anglo Saxon history; presented in a world that was dynamically submersive and in a palette that was an absolute visual feast.”

Forever and a day…

For the masses who might have noticed my absense, I do apologize. Of course the “Masses” includes myself and my imaginary Monkey, but I accept that as a “Fan Base” none the less.

I have chosen to cast off my shackles and move 900 miles and half a century away from my previous living conditions, and have not had the same sort of time, access, motivation and or inclination to post a damn thing.

My employer made a decision to “go another direction” – which I suppose directly translated into “Pack your shit – YOU are not the direction we chose.” I would be hurt, however no one made the cut. Whichever “direction” was chosen did not involve the need of employees it would appear. PONSI Scheme or is that TOTALLY 2009?

I was presented with a Generous Severence Package – they paid me until the end of the day. So, Two Hours of pay. Before Taxes.

And Conan thought HE had the big pay day!

So, thus is where we find ourselves. Life is Life, Life can Kick you in the Balls until you Vomit, and then bring you some ice and cuddle.

More Later – I recon. (Moved to the midwest Bible Belt – thought I needed some Jesus – and they love them some Jesus in these parts)
