At last I managed to get this film at bargain basement price. And what a shock to find its nothing like Two Smoking Barrels or Snatch. So if you liked them this might not be your cup of tea. In fact its more of a serious gangster film and I enjoyed it once I relised this is what I was getting. The ending though did take me by surprise. Although on this disc there are a couple of other rubbish ending you can veiw as well.
Sunday and Big-L and me went on a trip. In fact if you were up on Sunday morning of the 23rd of October ( and being that we had celebrated Norf's 30th Burthday down the Rainbow the night before I doubt any I knew was up) you would have seen a convoy of MX5's heading down the M5 from Frankly service to Ross On Wye. A few mistakes on directions and we eventualy got there. Lucky the weather was holding out and we had our top down all the way and for the drive around the area after. The drive was followed by a three course dinner which the dessert was great. A hugh peice of cheese cake. Most yummy. After this a quiz, which one round was about MX5's. And what surprised Big-L even more was the fact I didn't know that many answers! Most of them were date related.
From Ross on Wye we headed to Birmingham where we had tickets to watch the Kisser Chiefs knidly given to us by Di and Greg for being the Ushers at their wedding. Also present was Sarh and Gaz and Kiren the Big Coke drinker.
The line up after a quick drink in Scruufy Murphys was two bands I had not heard off, The Cribs and a band that seemed to have a following Maximo Park.
Can't say the Cribbs over whelmed me with enthusisaism but they weren't dire either.
Now Maximo Park were the buisness and very soon they too are going to be big there no don't about it. In fact if the Kisser Cheifs don't watch out they could out do them!
Then the Kisser Cheifs came on and that thought of being outdone went striaght out of my head. Can't say I liked the new songs at all mind, but this gig was good, apart from my loud singing of course.
The week flew by one way or anther with working late and getting up early. Only on the first couple of days mind but this really messed me up and I was tired for the rest of the week. When Friday did come round I manged to stay in with steak and kidney pie and chips> i watched the latest USA version of Lost followed by another download tv series Jail Break or Prision Break or something like that. Yet another great drama. Saturday I got up went down the post office and spent 170 spondunies on road tax for the Eunos. Then I nipped up town to get my hair cut, buy some service parts for my Cavalier and buy document snowboard from W/H Smiths for 2 spondunnies. Oddly the girl behind the desk inputted only two quid from the 'free' catolgue marke 2 quid on the back instead of 3:95. Bargain. I nipped into Thomas Cook to get some snowboarding brouchers in the bid to decide where to go for my second boarding holiday.
It was pizza for Tea again and then off up Wolvo for some beers. Pubs visited were Moonies, Wlakabout and the Passada where we sat in the beer garden and watched the clouds move by at tremendous speed. But this was not to be the highlight of the night....
that would be the fact the bus window got put through in Coven when some yob through a bottle at it. Nice one - the police got called but I was well on my wasy home by then.
Sunday morning came all to fast and with it heavy rain. The footie pitch was sodden but the game had not been called off. Rainbow were a goal down in the first 10 seconds! things weren't looking good and I headed to the changing rooms to watch the match from the dry. Neil Allen made his come back after his injury of a broken toe! And for once he actually seemed to play and move through out the game. Perhaps he should break his toes more often! I found the game depressing - and so I could not bare going to the Rainbow to get even more depressed. Les dropped me off home before I headed out in the Eunos to go and see my Uncle.
Latter on Sunday night I went to the mives with Les to see Saw II! Crumbs, crikey and bloody. In the first miuntes I was squirming in my seat! Nasty nasty nasty. I thought the end was rubbish mind. But then I guess they want to make a third!
I've edited all the Irish photos now just to scann in some of the tickets and stuff... Great eh.
