Director: David Yates
An observation I've made whilst waching the Harry Potter franchise is that they get better and better with every release and that defianetly applies to this one. I never read the book to this but I thought that it was good I didn't beacause I had no idea what was going to happen making it a lot more intense. Britain isn't well known for making high-budget films that have excellent plotlines, but Harry Potter is just one of those examples along with James Bond that have had a huge amount of money put in and the outcome is excellent.
Harry, and friends, are being taken to a safer place by 'The Order of the Phoenix' due to the huge conflict with Voldermort, however now that Snape is plotting alognside Voldermort they know exactly when and where Harry is being moved to causing a huge battle during the journey, resulting in the deaths of Mad-Eye Moody and Harry's owl Hedwig, also George Weasley loses his ear. When at Ron's house, Rufus Scrimgeour (Bill Nighy), brings rounds old possessions of Albus Dumbledore that he placed on his will to Harry, Ron and Hermione. During the wedding of Bill Weasley and Fleur, the deatheaters (who have now taken over the Ministry of Magic from which they are persecuting muggle-born witches and wizards) disrupt the wedding to find Harry, however Harry, Ron and Hermione disapparate to Piccadilly Circus in London and go to a cafe where they are attacked by two more death eaters. Eventually they find a place to stay at The Order of the Phoenix's hideout at "Number 12, Grimmold Place". After find information out from Kreather about R.A.B and the stolen horcrux, him and Dobby go to find Flethcher, when they return they find out that the real horcrux is in the possession of the Ministry, under the effect of Polyjuice potion they go to the Ministry and steal the horcrux and escape. They are unable to destroy the horcrux so they all take turns wearing it and whilst Ron wears it, it has and effect on him causing him to become suspicious that Harry and Hermione are forming a relationship and therefore abandons them. Without Ron, Harry and Hermione visit Godrics Hollow (Harry's birth place) where they meet Bathilda Bagshot who they believe has the sword of Griffindor which they think will be able to destroy the horcrux. However Bathilda Bagshot was murdered and the body they are seeing has been taken over by Voldermort's snake. The two manage to escape to the Forest of Dean, whilst there Harry find the sword of Griffindor underneath an ice lake which he breaks and jumps into to recieve the sword however the locket he is wearing reacts and attempts to drown him, however Ron appears and saves him. Ron then destroys the horcrux (after facing his fears of spiders and having a vision of Harry and Hermione kissing). The three of them then visit Luna Lovegood's dad to ask him about the recurring symbol they have seen throughout their journey, they find out it represents the Deathly Hallows consisting of an elder wand, a resurrection stone and an invisibility cloak, then after disrupted by more death eaters they escape to some woods where they are attacked by a group of Snatchers and taken to Malfoy Manor where Bellatrix imprisons Harry and Ron and tortures Hermione for information. Dobby appears and helps Harry, Ron and Hermione escape but is killed in the process when Bellatrix throws a knife at him. The final scene is of Voldemort finding the elder wand in Dumbledore's tomb.
This was a very good film indeed, that is really all I can say, it is more intense than the last ones and the sense of threat and peril keeps you on the edge of your seat all the way through.
One final note I wrote a review about this on iMDB and an American complained that it was an American film because it is produced by Warner Brothers, after experience in film studies I can say that this is incorrect, it is filmed in Britain, the cast is British, David Yates (The Director) is from England, the funding is from Britain (with 1/8th of it from US), the writer (JK Rowling) is from England, and the production company is not Warner Brothers, it is HeyDay Films (who are from London), Warner Brothers are the 'distribution' company who release the film, not produce it.

Director: F. Gary Gray
☆☆☆☆☆☆☆ : 7/10
Law Abiding Citizen was a very good film, unlike your usual thriller of just a cop chasing a criminal this one has the added sense of mystery. It really keeps you on the edge of your seat because its unclear what the destiny of the next character is, will he live or will he die a slow and painful death. Just to make a point, this film isn't for the faint-hearted due to the excessive amounts of gore in certain scenes, particularly the torture scene near the beginning. If you are just trying to watch a good film mainly focusing on the plot then you can probably push the instances of gore aside because the plot of this film is extremely unique and clever.
Clyde (Gerard Butler) witnesses the murder of his wife and daughter. The two murderers, Clarence and Rupert, are caught and sent to a trial. During their trial, their prosecutor Nick (Jamie Foxx) tells Clyde that the evidence against the murderers is "inadmissible", however Nick strikes a deal with Clarence that will send Rupert to death row. From this outcome Clyde feels betrayed by Nick and the entire court system. Rupert is later executed via lethal injection, however someone switched the drugs around causing Rupert to die a slow and agonising death. Clarence is suspected of the murder, however Clyde helps him escape the grasps of the law enforcement, only then to drug him with a neurotoxin via some needles in a gun handle that are activated when the trigger is pulled. Whilst Clarence is under the influence of the neurotoxin, Clyde slowly tortures him. When the police find whats left of the body they arrest Clyde as the chief suspect, Clyde then confesses to the murders of both Clarence and Rupert. Shortly afterwards Nick learns that Clyde had kidnapped Clarence's attorney and hidden him somewhere and will only reveal the location in return for a hot meal at 1 o'clock on the dot. However the meal arrives past the deadline resulting in the police arriving too late to rescue the attorney, meanwhile Clyde murders his cellmate by stabbing him in the neck with a steak bone and is therefore sent to solitary confinement. Slowly Nick learns that Clyde used to be a black ops assassin in which experience he utilizes to murder the judge, several members of the police squad and the district attorney. Nick wonders how Clyde has been killing the justice members whilst in jail but shortly discovers a tunnel from an outdoor garage leading all the way into his solitary confinement cell that he dug before he was arrested, he deliberately killed his cell mate so he could be moved to solitary confinement so he could get out to kill the justice system. Clyde then plans to kill the mayor and Nick discovers a napalm bomb at the city hall, however they are unable to disarm it. When Clyde returns to his cell, Nick is already waiting there for him, he tells him not to press the detonator and strikes one last deal but Clyde refuses and presses the button, Nick leaves the cell only for Clyde to find out that whilst he was getting back to jail Nick had moved the bomb from the city hall to Clyde's cell, killing him.
Law Abiding Citizen was a fun film to watch, some people have mixed feelings about the ending whether it was good or bad, it was a relatively good ending because it was something that you weren't expecting and really stamped a strong ending in my opinion, but I can also see why the ending has negative reviews because in the end Clyde was only teaching the people a lesson because he lost everything, but to the extreme he went to was going to suffer consequences. All-in-all a very good film.

10. Saving Private Ryan (1998) - Steven Spielberg
- A war film that will never be forgotten, telling the story of 6 soldiers risking their lives to save one, the camerawork is amazing really immersing you in the action from the start of D-day at omaha beach to the end at 'the alamo' this film is defianetly worth watching.
9. The Terminator (1984) - James Cameron
- Science-fiction films were largely made in the 80's and the terminator is defianetly one of the best ones created. A cyborg is sent from the future to assassinate sarah connor who is liable for the birth of john connor, the leader of the human army in the future during a nuclear war. However, kyle reese a soldier from the human army is also sent back to make sure that sarah survives. One of the best sci-fi's created, a must-see.
8. Rambo: First Blood (1982) - Ted Kotcheff
- The first, and the best in the rambo quadrilogy. John rambo is a vagrant who has come to a little town in canada to visit a friend who has unfortunately passed away, however a trouble-causing police officer eventually arrests him for vagrancy and resisting arrest. Rambo escapes the custody of the police and runs to the mountains after accidentally killing a police officer, however the police wont let him go and go on the hunt for him only to have misjudged him as rambo slowly but surely gets his revenge. A film that emphasis's the thriller genre, great film.
7. 28 Days Later... (2002) - Danny Boyle
- Set in present-day britain during a zombie uprise, 28 days later portrays the zombie genre better than any other zombie film i have seen. The film is astoundingly directed by danny boyle, director of trainspotting and slumdog millionaire. Jim awakes in a hosptial after being in a coma for 28 days only to find that a virus released into the atmosphere has put the whole country into quarantine. The empty streets of london and manchester really emphasise the sense of isolation, great film.
6. Lethal Weapon (1987) - Richard Donner
- This is a feel-good film thats worth the watch. A film that combines action with comedy to create the buddy-cop genre that made Mel Gibson and Danny Glover big in cinema history. It has your typical storyline about bad guys doing bad things being hunted down by the good guys, but the actual concept of this certain film makes it so amazing that it brought on three sequels.
5. Die Hard (1988) - John McTiernan
- Die Hard, the first in a great trilogy (not-so-good quadrilogy since number 4 came in). Bruce Willis plays the New York cop who has come to Los Angeles to see his wife on Christmas Eve only for the building to be taken over by a group of German terrorists led by Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman). It's a great film, full of action and foul-mouthed humour, a really good film.
4. The Untouchables (1987) - Brian DePalma
- Set in 1930, The Untouchables portrays the uprise of crime boss Al Capone (Robert De Niro) during the prohibition in Chicago. Elliott Ness (Kevin Costner) and Jimmy Malone's (Sean Connery) jobs are to bring him down and this film focuses on the build up to the final scene in the court. Brian DePalma portrays this film very well, a film focussing on Capone's lust for blood and revenge. The film contains one of the most famous shootouts in film history taking place on the steps of Chicago Union Station.
3. Heat (1995) - Micheal Mann
- The perfect duo to make a film, Al Pacino and Robert DeNiro star in this cop'n'robbers style film that Michael Mann has directed wonderfully. Robert DeNiro plays a criminal who plans a huge heist in downtown LA, Al Pacino plays the cop that has to bring DeNiro to justice. Greatly acted out and amazing choreographed gun fights. The intensity builds up all the way to the ending of the parting words of Pacino and DeNiro.
2. The Godfather (1972) - Francis Ford Coppola
- A classic in the film industry, The Godfather focusses on the Corleone family who are at war with 3 other families. I would like to say it is your typical gangster flick, but it isn't, it is a special film that was written so well by Mario Puzo, plus its great ensemble cast of Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, James Caan, Robert Duvall and John Cazale. The film is long and some people get bored with the long scenes of dialogue, but personally I think of them as the build-up of tension to the final deaths of the heads of the families. Amazing film!
1. Scarface (1983) - Brian DePalma
- My favourite film of all time is the modern adaptation of the 1932 gangster flick of the same name, Scarface. The film tells the story of Tony Montana (played by Al Pacino), a refugee from Cuba who has just arrived in America to live the American dream, however not is all he had imagined. Montana starts working for the Miami mafia doing small jobs and slowly working up to bigger jobs only to be betrayed by his boss causing his to go his own way and start drug trafficking. The film is an unyielding production, a true classic, nothing is left to the viewers imagination, the story is all onscreen and extremely intense. I have watched hundreds of films and none of them have beaten the expectations of Scarface, it is truly amazing beyond belief and every minute of the film is full of tension. This is Brian De Palma's strongest directorial effort ever and it is full of well-handed scenes, particularly the memorable finale. Trust me when I say that you will not be disappointed.

And it is... my Xbox transfer cable for my hard drive woooooo! Boring.
Thursday, 1 April 2010
The film is possibly being made by Mancuinian director, Danny Boyle, the best British director ever, credit goes to him for legendary films like '28 Days Later', 'Slumdog Millionaire' and 'Trainspotting', if anyone has seen any of these three movies, then you will understand what I mean. Furthermore the film is being produced by 'Lord of the Rings' and 'King Kong' director Peter Jackson, and yet... it will be an American movie.
For some reason this doesn't add up, as my friend Sam will tell you that after studying a years course in film studies and still going, you need a certain amount of aspects to make a film British or American or French or whatever. This film is being made by a director from Manchester which is a city in England, that already takes away the part of the American setting, the producer is from Wellington which is the capital of New Zealand. The film is being made in New Zealand as well, but certain parts will be made in America... so how does this add up to an American film, 3 of the 6 specific points have already made the film international, so unless the main cast is not American or the setting or whatever, then this film will not be American... either way i am still looking forward to seeing it... I just hope that Danny Boyle is the director because I have been hearing things that Neill Blomkamp might be... fuck me, what a name, some Canadian guy born in South Africa who directed 'District 9' with Peter Jackson as the producer... looks like they might be coming back together once again.
Anyway, talking about other games that are being made into movies, I haven't heard much from Gears of War, it has a release date of 2010 but I am pretty sure it has been dropped, there is no trace of a director or producer and definately no cast, so I think that is a no-go. Bioshock however does look a lot more promising, it has a director 'Juan Carlos Fresnadillo' who directed '28 Weeks Later' the seauel to Danny Boyle's 28 Days Later. It also has a production company and cast, however I heard that American's dropped the project and that the British will be taking it over, like Juan Carlos Fresnadillo did with 28 Weeks Later, he kept it British even though he is Spanish and works on American motion pictures, so yer, Bioshock could be a British film, even though it is set in 1950s America in the underwater city of Rapture, kinda confusing but hey.
Sunday, 21 March 2010

As you know Rob likes to make his Phat Rob Show every now and again telling you about stuff, well at lunch today we had 40 minutes to do what we liked, so me and Norledge went along the waterfront of London and made a video showing you all the cool shit you can do in 40 minutes in London, well actually it's shite, we would have done a lot more, but Norledge seemed more interested in a dinosaur riding a bike... I present you the Norledge & Rhys Show: 40 Minutes In London

Monday, 1 March 2010
The sole of my shoe came loose again after a long walk to Robs house then to the meads and up the bridge, I looked extremely stupid with it hanging off so I disposed of it, dunno if it landed on Robs head, I imagined a lot of things did, it was like a rock avalanche... tut tut tut Sam and Alex.
Me and Sam did a re-enactment of Titanic on the edge of a huge bridge and if he let go I would have gone tumbling to my death, dont really care though, I ent scared of death, I mean yer I would like to get more out of my life first. I don't suffer from vertigo or fear of death, as Sam said I have no fears, true true, but beeing brought up in Liverpool really does teach you a thing or too.
I had a huge sandwich year conversation with Rob at Tesco's, he said I should take a year out after my first year at uni to study a directing course, and then I changed the conversation and started on about cake years instead (they have layers, or onion years... no wait, cakes are nicer) and then he said it depends what centre you have and I said jam... so he said it would go study, jam, study, study... I didn't know what to say so I just slept and dreamt of Victoria Sponge.
Saturday, 27 February 2010
After the film we walked around Worcester for about 20-30 mins looking for somewhere nice to eat, Norledge found Subway and then the rest of us went off to Pizza Hut up on Foregate where we had to wait till 10.30pm for the train to arrive, so what did we do?... We lived off a Large Pizza, Pepsi and unlimited Ice Cream, I tell you, last night was an awesome night, perhaps the film could have been a slight bit better (It wasn't too bad in my opinion) but yer... Great Night!

Wednesday, 24 February 2010
Well Chelsea is playing Inter Milan and I am really for English teams and all but during this match I actually am not supporting Chelsea (Alex has kinda put me off them) they are a great team and I don't mean to offend all you Chelsea supporters but I'm predicting the final score to be something like 2-1 to Inter Milan, I mean I could be wrong and Chelsea could kicks IM's asses (But ya didn't with Everton mwah-ha-ha) but you know, I do have a strong feeling that Chelsea could do well, but for some reason, I am just against them cos I wanna try and support an Italian team (My god does Italian food taste great).
Whilst on the subject of sport I would like to say that Everton have been ruling the fuck outta teams recently, I mean 'Everton 2-1 Chelsea' <--- Success! And then we won 'Everton 3-1 Man United' <--- Yet again, Success! We got a match against Tottenham coming up on the 28th and I'm really looking forward to watching it (Especially seeing as my Dad is a Spurs supporter) but I have high hopes for the Toffee's "COME ON YOU BLUES!" I'm predicting about a 2-1 win, but Tottenham have been showing us some good wins recently so I actually feel a little less confident with them than I did Man U and Chelsea... *Does weird Christian Cross sign, dunno what it's called and why I did it*.
I finished editing the majority of Point Wars today and have tomorrow noon to complete it to a high standard 100%, I hope it's all good. Anyway we begin Alex's (hopefully successful) film in 2 weeks and then Infected 2 during Easter hols, keep a look out at our site on http://www.phrat-boys-productions.webs.com/.
Also I quit my job today by sending them a letter explaining my resignation, hey I still got my previous weeks pay... wooo... now then what to do with the money... save it or go see a film with Norledge in Worcester... hmmmm.
Monday, 22 February 2010
Anyway there he was in the MobFace creator making himself a character, turned out the character was the ugliest fucker ever -->
Yup... kinda looks like Borat with a beard!
Anyway, today we got back into finishing Point Wars, successfully for once, although we started off with Rob shouting at me, the fucking director! I didn't understand what he was saying. Anyway, the film went a blast when we got into it, it was awesome, it mixes Action with Comedy and it looks like it could be a possible winner for W Factor (Shit, I better not jinx it)
Also the evil granny is dead... I think, Norledge said she was, ooops... I didnt mean granny, her official name is now Dorothy as thought up by Morgan. For some random reason Alex wants me to add on muzzle flashes and gun sounds even though the original idea was not that... honestly Alex... tut tut tut, besides I got only two hours on Wednesday to make the film A-OK... or just perfect!!
Anyway, I kinda turned down the band oppurtunity with Alex, sorry Alex... a-hem, because of two main reasons, Rob and Morgan dont wanna be in it, Rob says he doesnt want to form a band, he justs wants to learn guitar, fair enough, and my brother seys he prefers going solo, bit of a shame, he's just goin to his grade 3, he's honestly quite good. And the second is because I'm knee deep in stuff to do with filming, coursework and my job. Besides he was too bossy for my liking when we were in Lazy Generation, he took over too much, but he is a really good musician and mate, I understand when we mess about, but it was quite frequent he bossed us about, but all-in-all we made some great music.
I got a Skins novel in the post, random I know, but I got an e-mail that if I order something I could get something else half price and I got it for £2 and it's quite a good book... that's only if you actually like skins. Here's my review, it's about the Summer holidays and everyone has broke up and some are staying in Bristol and other aren't, Katie and Emily are off to France and Effy is in Venice, Cook and Freddie are having a sex competition whilst Naomi ent having any fun cause she cant have any lesbian time... hmm, exciting book.
Oh yes, going back to Yesterday and poor wickle Rob couldn't find the piggy, there is a video below dedicated to him not finding the piggy:

'I Don't Care About Your 26 Care Packages or Your 10th Prestige' - Rob Byrd
The above is probably one of the most famous catchphrases ever... of Rob Byrd that is, he said this whilst playing through the campaign of Modern Warfare 2, he then got pwned by the game AI so switched to multiplayer where he got pwned by some American. Before this decided to play on Guitar Hero: Van Halen which I had preordered turned up at my house and Rob was like Oh Yeh!!!... shame he cudnt do Eruption... I beat him on it, woo through the campaign and on a pro-face off!!!! IT IS A MENTAL SONG!!!
Yer well, after lunch he decided to give up on Guitar Hero and decided to write a blog, unsuccesfully, I kinda blog raped him and made his profile photo a picture of two lesbians having a little fun, i dunno if he's changed it yet, but yer... anyway, after he gave up on Van Halen and blogging he decided to pick up my Modern Warfare case and his lines were YOU KNOW WHAT! I'LL PLAY SOME COD! So this is where the first paragraph comes in, I only think he was playing for the chievo's... G-WHORE!!! ssshhh dont tell him... he was talking about killing 7 chickens in under 10 minutes hey wait a sec i have that one... um yeh. But then he tried to get 10+ kills with a predator missiles and 5 kills with 5 different weapons and 10 thermal weapon kills... ya see what i'm saying
Below is some commentary of his multiplayer match at this moment in time
"Rob is now playing on multiplayer but he is only level fou... no wait... he is five now. I would help him but i cba with all this blogging, so instead I am going to commentate for him. He is using an M4-Carbine with a Spas-12 and we just began High Rise and he's comitted suicide 6 times by jumping out the wrong window... oh and guess what... it's now 7 times... honestly... oh, he just got killed by a Stealth Bomber that wasn't very stealthy... tut tut tut, now he got a double kill, then he got killed, now he has an ACR with a heartbeat sensor, wait... he's balancing on the end of the building... oh, he got another double kill, he just got slaughtered onto last stand... then he killed someone whilst in last stand and got a carepackage... he got himself a harrier air strike and murdered up aobut 7 people. And the match finished and rob had 11 kills and 1140 points. Well done Rob. Who wants to see Rob's face after coming top in the table."

It was something like Thursday when I last wrote on here, during these past 7 days it has been half-term and I have done some great stuff... and some not-so great stuff. Anyway on Friday I went to Bailey's house with Rob and did nothing but Guitar Hero - I didn't mind but like I said in my previous post it would have been nice to have some other activities to do than Xbox all day... I kinda get bored when I play Modern Warfare 2 like 6 hours every evening till something like 3 in the morning. Well, the rest of the week was kinda shit, Saturday I had work, yadda-yadda-yadda, Sunday I did fuck all, Monday I did someth... no wait, i also did fuck all on Monday, and on Tuesday. Then we finally got to Wednesday when suddenly everything went awesome, Sam invited us to some UV Rave Party at Marilyn's Night Club (when I say us i mean me, Rob, Ryan, Craig and Toby) and that evening was one of the best evenings I have actually ever had! It was quality. If you look at the image below you will see how happy we were... look at us raving with smiley faces! =]
Anyway that was an awesome night, 4 hours of just DJ music, the singer 'Reece' wa kinda OK, BUT OTHER THAN THAT IT WAS AWESOME (There is repetition because it was so awesome... and again)! Anyway yer... check out their site at http://www.aliveclubnights.com/evesham/

Today Norledge made me eat cheese salad and I was like um... OK... and actually it was alright. I then got stuck in with my graphics coursework and worked "hard"... or not, but at this very moment in time I should be doing work, but I am taking time out to write about stuff, how joyful is that?
Upsettingly Alex is sleeping round my house tomorrow... and then I got Rob coming over on Friday at 9 o'clock, oh joy we will be awoken with Rob standing over us smiling like a deranged pedo... a-hem ... anyway, I am just hoping that we're not gonna play guitar hero all day... maybe we can have some variety for once =]
Anyway, I am off now to finish my Graphics coursework then I am going to have an evening of nothing but playing Modern Warfare 2, 'I IZ GONNA OWN SOME NEWBS'. I think I have done well recently, I have had 5 nukes so far with week and have been MVP quite a few times, quite impressed with myself.

Yesterday evening me and Rob saw Sam driving his Citroën Berlingo down the road, he actually braked well, that was a sight, we were hoping he would stall but he failed to... dammit! However, we did notice he drove off without his lights on, tut tut... anyway he has his test sometime in April I believe, he has been taking lessons but is only driving on a provisional so if you live in or around Worcestershire then I advise you to keep off the roads.
Today I ventured off to Tesco's again with Alex and Sam and "accidentally" left Rob doing his homework (honestly we had no idea)... anyway the best sight of today was when Alex leap frogged over at least 3 dozen bollards in the centre of Next Car Park, both Norledge and I tried to distract Alex numerous times and failed miserably, his facebook status proves all.
This is the last week before half term and this Thursday, me and my mates are making a short film for a Film Studies Class. Then on Friday me and Rob have been invited to Alex's house for god know what... better take protection just in case... i mean my goddamn gun, not my con... forget it... anyway yer, you will hear my story when I return.
Anyway I think we should mention some stuff in the news like the Haiti Earthquake probably one of the most devastating disasters this year so far, then there's Cadbury's who's been taken over by American company Kraft, now most of us British people are probably pretty angry and want it back, but no matter how many facebook groups you make and how many times you ask, the chances of Cadburys coming back to England are very low... hey be thankful we still got Bourneville... yer...
Anyway, it's my third day of blogging and I have been writing random rubbish like Rob asked, well some stuff seems to amuse Alex and Sam then other stuff seems to make Rob stare in paranoia looking like a gormless goldfish... but yer they're all the same, good ole buds. I wonder who will get muffin face raped first today?

I am gonna quote a near enough... well quote to what Alex sed,
'Ya see, this is what Sixth Form is all about'Well done Alex, you're correct, pissing of the public and pouring Tesco Value Coke over one another is really what Sixth Form is about... I'd like to see you say that to the headteacher, oh boy... anyway, Alex was right, it was a fun day, and perhaps Sam got the finger from an angry van driver... stupid prick. On top of that Sam almost knocked me and rob out with the cap from his Tesco Value Coke, and then Alex appeared with Paul and got face raped by a muffin
Anyway, enough of the school day, I am now enjoying myself at home with chocolate milkshake... actually it was hot chocolate but it has now gone very cold, so yer, and I am watching Football Factory with legendary Danny Dyer... who Rob thinks is a drag queen from Londo n who acted in Adulthood... i don't think so Rob, he is from London and did act in Adulthood, but he is not a drag queen...
... ah forget it, i cant be bothered to go on, I am now gonna go and watch something on TV and just hear Norledge in my head chanting 'Narwhals'... oh boy, tonight's gonna be one long night.

Anyway this week I have been ill due to some serious migraines, I recieved many texts from my friends, but instead of getting ones from Rob and Sam saying hoping u ent ill anymore, i got one saying "We thought you were dead!"... NOW IMAGINE HOW I FELT AFTER THAT. The only sensible person was Alex who didnt text me because he was outta credit, good move buddy... actually no, rob did send me a message saying that he loved a trailer that i had put together... but tbh that didn't make me feel any better.
I just gotta point something out... (you are probs gonna say now "He ent gonna bitch about people is he?") well no I'm not, instead I'm just gonna say how some people annoy me by saying that they hate places that they have never been to. A friend of mine (no names) says that he hates Manchester and Liverpool because chances are that you will get stabbed (he has never been to either of them), as for me, I love these cities, I grew up in one and have family members from the other, so I asked him how does he know what they're like if he's never been there, he said that he hasn't been there cos he knows what it's like... that is the biggest bullshit excuse I have ever heard. If you want to know what the place is like, then actually go there... if you DO get stabbed or smacked up then that's when you have a reason... but those 2 cities are amazing. If anyone reads this from either Manchester or from my homecity, Liverpool, then comment on how the city really is like to show him that he's just acting a dick
Anyway, it was fun to get that out... I dunno when I will next write on here, probs sometime soon though. Hope you enjoyed reading it.
