It’s been a while since I last blogged properly so except this entry to be very long…

I went to see The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy last night. It was very well cast, funny and entertaining, I enjoyed it a lot.

I’m following the whole Hitchhikers collection in a strange order. I originally intended to see the film, the series and read the books. So far I have seen the film, bought the DVD of the series, watched the first two episodes, bought the first book of the five part trilogy (yes ‘five part trilogy’) but am yet to read it. I will get through them all as I am really enjoying the series and the film was great.

Something else I noticed today was the DVD release of The Lone Gunmen, a spin off series from the excellent X-Files. I really don’t know how I failed to see this had been released at the end of last month as I’ve been keen on getting hold of this for some time. It’s been ordered and should be with me soon. Unlike most series box sets it’s of a very reasonable price of £17.99.

For those of you not in the know, the series follows ‘The Lone Gunmen’. Mulder’s geekey mates from TheX-Files. It is very good and am very surprised it was cancelled after just one season.

TV Company Fox really seem to have a problem with quality broadcasting. Not only did they cancel The Lone Gunmen, they continue to commission The Simpsons even though the new episodes are nothing like what they used to be, in fact they are now like a poorly aged relative who has lost all dignity and stinks of shit.

A Fox show that was cancelled has finally been re-commissioned. Family Guy, in my opinion the greatest cartoon comedy ever, far better than both Simpsons and South Park.

The new series is officially aired in the US tomorrow night (it should be on UK screens soon), I’ve managed to see the very first episode of the new series and must say it is hilarious, it certainly hasn’t lost its original quality.

Moving on from films & TV, it’s been a really nice day today, hopefully the weather will continue as it’s a three day weekend. As Leeds weren’t playing I decided to enjoy the weather and sit out in the garden. While outside I saw the coolest hot air balloon ever, it was the talking, nodding dog from the Churchill Insurance TV ads (except surprisingly it wasn’t talking or nodding)

Lastly, a new idea I have had for the end of ever month… As the website owner, I can view statistics about visitors (like you!) to my website. These statistics include how many visitors I get a day, what sites they access my site from and search strings.

A search string is used for visitors who access via a search engine like Google. It shows me what was typed in to the search engine which lead the visitor to my website.

Search strings are funny as they often don’t reflect the websites content at all! The reason for this is because most search engines search the whole textual content of a webpage based upon the users search request.

Here’s my Top 10 for April…

1. shampoo david beckham uses
2. Paula radcliffe pissing pic
3. stephanie mcintosh pussy
4. smartcar crash
5. good neighbours leeds
6. Alex Ferguson a role model
7. ray liotta soundboards
8. taking the back cover phone nokia 6230
9. daylight saving makes mornings darker
10. fat andy

I think this just proves that most people who use the internet are insane!

I’m off to Leeds at the weekend to watch The Mighty Whites take on Ipswich who are gunning for promotion back to The Premiership. Looking forward to going, even though I’ll be taking a 400 mile round trip in 24 hours!

It’ll be a very tough game for Leeds and to be honest I’ll be surprised if they win. However every time I’ve seen Leeds play this season they have won, hopefully I can be a lucky charm and make it 3 out of 3.

The following weekend is going to be great too, not only is it a three day long Bank Holiday Weekend, but two things I have been looking forward to for months will take place…

Firstly, The Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy will be released in the cinema. I’m not a real Sci-Fi fan. I dislike Star Wars, Star Trek and all the spin off series. I haven’t read the book or seen the TV series for Hitch Hikers (although I have ordered it so I’ll give it a go). The only real Sci-Fi I have liked in the past has been X-Files.

The film Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy looks more like a comedy Sci-Fi (well, so was the TV series and novel) so I’ll probably enjoy it. I just hope the cinema isn’t full of geeks obsessed with the book and series, wearing ‘Hitch Hikers’ T-Shirts, dressed up as characters from the book, stinking of B.O., greasy hair and moaning all the way through the film about how “Douglas Adams didn’t intend for it to be like this!”

You can see the trailers for Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy here. The UK trailer is far better! Also have a look around the website, it’s pretty cool.

The other good thing which will be happening that Bank Holiday weekend is that the best cartoon comedy series ever is returning. This series is, in my eyes, the funniest thing ever to come out of America (with the possible exception of George W. Bush’s press statements). It’s far funnier than other great shows such as The Simpsons and South Park. It is – FAMILY GUY…

Due to very successful DVD sales, thanks to a lot to people in The UK as well as America, Fox have commissioned a fourth series. The first episode of the new season airs in America on May 1st. Shame us UK viewers have to wait for Sky One or Channel Four to buy it. There are of course ways of getting it quicker though… :o)

Last but by no means least, a week today will be the 26th April. This will probably mean nothing to you. The 26th April will be the first birthday of It’s been almost 12 months of blogging!

  • 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.
