The story of the wedding

OK, I don’t want to go into too much detail so forgive me if it’s a little cryptic. The day went well, the sun shone for the photos, the meal was lovely, the speeches long. At some point before the reception started, word got to the groom that someone had been speaking ill of his father (who passed a few years ago). Tempers flared, blood was spilt, and the police were called. A sad end to the day. Louise is a bit shaken but fine, and I got away with only a little blood on my shirt after dragging the groom outside to calm down. Thankfully bride and groom got back to the hotel around 2:30 a.m. So, how was …

Matrix Reloaded Explained?

MAJOR SPOILER ALERT!!!If you’ve not seen the film yet do not read any further!!!———–Been trying to get my head around this one, and came across a fascinating post in a film forum: Reloaded didn’t make sense to you?

(yeah yeah where have I heard that before)

The Ickity One

Having posted about it yesterday I thought I’d better try this brushing the tongue malarky (malarky? That’s that bloody Jamie Oliver!). Ick. I don’t like the sensation, nor did I enjoy the gagging sensation it brought on, definitely not the most pleasant thing to do first thing in the morning. I managed to see the Matrix Reloaded last night. I’ve read a couple of reviews in the papers this morning and have to say that I think some of the critics should maybe go back and watch the first movie. Yes Keanu is ‘wooden’ and yes there are holes in the plot. That doesn’t stop it being one kick ass movie (in every sense and nuances that phrase brings). The …

Matrix Screensavers

Jez mentioned a screensaver yesterday and reminded me that I also downloaded a new Matrix screensaver recently (as featured in Lockergnome Daily I think). It requires a ‘modern’ 3D Video card (unfortunately my machine at work doesn’t quite cut it, but when I installed it at home… WOW. MVR Matrix Reloaded Screen Saver I have had the green code falling down the screen one for a year or so, but this one takes the idea to a new dimension, literally. If this kinda thing floats your boat, give it a try!
