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 Sparkster.net. 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.
