Last night I watched Hero on DVD – originally known as Ying xiong. Hero is a martial arts film, originally released in China and dubbed and subtitled for Westerners.

I enjoyed it a lot, the fight scenes were really impressive as are the locations and use of colours, music and sound – beautifully produced.

The storyline is highly original as well. It shows different characters versions of events in the lead up to the films climax. Something I have not seen done before.

Today I have been teaching myself Visual Basic.NET 2003. I’ve installed Visual Studio and am using ‘Beginning VB.NET 2003’ to learn the language.

So far so good, I got through Chapter One with no problems (I do have some Visual Basic 6 experience) and have made a very basic program.

I am planning on adding a section to this website where I will comment on my progress and upload the (simple) programs I create.

I’m off to the cinema this evening with a friend, planning on going to see Will Smith’s new film Hitch (don’t laugh, there’s nothing else on!). Afterwards I’ll probably go out for dinner. Trouble is at that time, Leeds United will be playing Nottingham Forest. I’ll have my mobile phone out for most of the meal trying to find out the latest score – I’m going to look like one of those Chavs who is always texting on their (stolen) mobile phone!

Lastly, I hope you’re all voting for Leeds United on the ‘Win a player’ Coca Cola Competition. Leeds United are now top of the leader board by over 1000 votes. Remember, you can vote every day so just because you’ve voted earlier in the week it doesn’t mean you can’t vote again.

Good luck to Leeds United, you can beat Forest!

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
