Old Friend

Spiderman II

I caught Spiderman II last night with Dave and Sarah. I wasn't sure what it'd be like before I went as I wasn't all that keen on the first Spiderman film when I saw it on the cinema (it was only much later when I saw it on DVD that I really enjoyed the film!).

Spiderman II is, however, excellent. Doctor Octopus (a villain I was always a bit dubious about) was superb and all the actors involved did a sterling job. Stan Lee had two cameo appearences (that I counted anyway) and Bruce Campbell appears once again for a small bit of silver-screen greatness.

The story is good and having managed to miss a lot of the spoilers for this installment I was pleasently surprised a number of time sthroughout the film.

If you even remotely thought Spiderman I was alright I would urge you to go and see this. It's a rarity - a sequel that's actually better than the first film!

I can't wait for Spiderman III :-P

School Report: A- (A summer bloxkbuster that actually lives up to the hype!)
Old Friend

BLERG, YAY, BLERG, YAY - I guess it's Yo-Yo Time!!!!

Lost a tenner, split my trousers, didn't manage lunch, worked on my day off, hot and humid weather (or at lest in the office!), old/close friend apparently not talking/ignoring me for some reason, eternally ringing phones.....

....on the other hand still feeling productive at home, arranged more details about the World of Darkness 2.0 Launch Party with White Wolf and should be finalising everything else with the club tonight, sorted out a mail order agreement with one of the US-based companeis to handle all of their mail order worldwide (outside of the US borders) including some exclusives, hoping to continue talks and finalise with a couple of other companies for exclusive European distributor/publsiher rights for some cool (and/or geeky) stuff this evening, have plan for global domination for Leisure Games, am working on plan for global domination for Cubicle 7 Entertainment, have been asked if I'd consider becoming a 'paper' candidate for the Liberal Democracts in the next Local Council Elections (thus starting my global domination of the political scene ;-p).

All in all a mixed day.

7 days until Delphine arrives, 8 days until Sarah goes to Amsterdam for a week to see her mother for the first time in years. That's one day for the ex and the current to meet each other. Not sure if thats a good or a bad thing.

It's HOT but I seem to be buzzing (possibly too much Diet Coke, Ice Tea and chocolate to substitute for proper food!)
