Sorry about the lack of updates over the weekend, I’ll try and cover everything now…

It was my birthday on Saturday so firstly went out to the local pub for a drink before going out to Bristol for another drink and to the cinema to see Constatine. I must say, I really did not enjoy this film. It has been having rave reviews, but the film didn’t do it for me.

I didn’t like the storyline for one thing, The Bible meets The Exorcist meets The Matrix was bizarre. My friends liked it, as do the film critics so it must have just been me.


Flares at football grounds are just dangerous…

Earlier on that day Leeds United played Gillingham. I always had a bad feeling about this game. Leeds are a strange team, especially this season. They play superb and generally get good results against the stronger sides in the league, although when they play the teams near the bottom of the table, they always mess up. Gillingham are in serious danger of being relegated, although were very unlucky to only get a draw against Leeds – they deserved to win.


Gillingham – a team to fear… only if you’re Leeds United

I bloody hope Leeds sort this out fast as they have Nottingham Forest this Wednesday – another team struggling down there.

This evening I watched Man on Fire on DVD. I haven’t seen it before, don’t know why I didn’t see it at the cinema last year. I was really impressed with it. It’s a hard hitting, action/thriller which sees Denzil Washington play a bodyguard who must avenge the killers of a little girl he was hired to protect.

The film is a real revenge story, in some ways similar to Kill Bill. It is very violent, but for what the criminals did, you never feel that Washington was actually doing much wrong – or is that just me being sick and twisted!?

Anyway, top film and one I seriously recommend you buy or rent on DVD!

Moving onto music now, my friend has had to remove the link to the Amarillo song by Peter Kay – his server simply couldn’t cope with the bandwidth. Good news though! You can now buy the single (which includes the video) from all good record shops. Get it now and make it No.1 this Sunday. I bought my copy today and have been listening to it loads, it’s pretty addictive! :o)

Lastly, visitors to Sparkster.net… I was checking up on how many of you have been visiting my website lately and have noticed a massive rise in the number of visits to my site, a lot of being direct hits as opposed to referrals from other websites.

Would anybody be able to tell me how you learnt about Sparkster.net? This sudden increase in traffic activity makes me wonder if Sparkster.net has been featured in anymore publications – it’s already been in The Yorkshire Post. Just contact me and let me know – thanks.

  • 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.
