Yesterday I went to see Dance of the Vampires (the musical) and for a moment I was affraid that I like musicals after all... But I realized I didn't (Dance of the Vampires was excellent, mind you!), I just like the good music during a play, and I like it when a whole choir is singing on stage, but I still don't really like the fact that people are singing all their pain and love and hate instead of, you know, just talking it annoys me that a song ends, OK, great, it was a nice song, and then they seem to finally start a real conversation and then they start another song! The speech/song proportion should be more equalized... Still, I had a great time yesterday, and the music really is amazing! I was almost dancing in my chair at some poinst Also, it was really beautifully done, with really complex decor and moving stuff and whatnot... Ow, and my cello teacher was the cellist in the orchestra (that's how I got there in the first place)!
It's these kind of parts that I like... (and you get a glimpse of HERBERT! made me laugh out loud! )
Watched Priest a couple of nights ago. It was bad. It wasn't shut it off in the middle of the movie bad, but still bad. I never, ever want to hear an American accent coming out of Paul Bettany's mouth again. Not because he didn't do a good job. Just because it sounded so wrong. I love Paul Bettany and I LOVE his voice. Sorry, didn't mean to get carried away there.

I've had a few Americans ask me if I'm from New England. Of course, I've also had them ask me if I'm "Scotch"* or Irish as well. And one young lady in a pharmacy in New Mexico asked me to just talk to her as she couldn't get enough of my accent.
*I never use the word 'scotch' when talking about Scottish people. Scotch is whiskey, pancakes, rolls and eggs - and a brand of sticky tape, not Scttish people.

Went to see Judge Dredd today it's in 3D some of the effects were purely put in for the 3D effects, it was not bad reminded me of The Block which I had seen recently, it probably would be better in 2D but I quite enjoyed it, just a few notches above Ok though and not worth the extra for the 3D price.
Ps Tony I'm going to be pendantic here, Scotch is whisky, Whiskey is Irish, and never the twain shall meet.
He willnae tak' a drink! I think he's deid! , on the other hand though A Midgie in yir hand is worth twa up yir kilt.
