Mrs Cheesecake has also been busy trimming her bush. Sorry couldn't stop myself. I meant hedge. The garden is our own little escape from the outside world. I only wish it was a bit more secluded and quiet but who knows maybe one sunny day.
I had grand plans for writing a big old blog about stuff and nonsense but I now find myself filled with an ennui that forces me to stop straight away

I'm not going to go into to much detail (I dont like publishing spoilers). The film is a mix of jump out your seat moments and outrageous visuals that Raimi is famous for.
There were two moments in the film that were in turn laugh out loud funny and utterly gross.
In other news I purchased Krull on DVD this afternoon. Top eighties movie. Liam Neeson, Robbie Coltrane, Alun Armstrong and Bernard Bresslaw in bit parts. It doesn't get any better than that. Mrs Cheesecake continues her Michael Sheen completist obsession by puchashing Underworld 1 and 2.
In other news I mangaged to connect the Wii to the interweb and then was able to view tech goodness such as I Player via the TV. Truly a techno marvel.
The weather has been fucking great today. Unfortunatley this means that I will have to cut the grass tomorrow. Oh well I guess it is about time. Last week I saw a tribe of pygmies in the undergrowth.
I am feelin sleepy now so I think I'll sign off.

Can you believe it! A whole fuckin year! Now I admit I started slowly…ok very slowly…ok there were only three posts in the whole of 2008 but it don’t matter none. I still broke my blogging cherry on May 26th 2008 so I have managed to stick to something for a whole 12 months.
I’ve spent the last 24hrs reflecting about how my world has changed in the last 12 months. Have I evolved as a human being? Am I a better person than I was a year ago? Fuck knows and more to the point who cares. Much more importantly I decided it would be insightful to capture my many moods using the medium of photography.
Ok so my first effort caught me unawares (damn you timer thingy!)
Right looks like pic 2 not much better than pic 1. Actually if I loose a few pounds maybe I could audition for the role of Beaker in the live action version of The Muppet Show.
Woah there big guy stop lovin the camera!
I was getting sleepy by this point.
At last success
In review over the last 12 months I’ve brought you the following.
- Multiple movie reviews of varying quality.
- In-depth discussion of the ultimate fish finger sandwich
- My opinions about some of the best shows on the box
- Interesting gadgety type stuff
- Drunken incoherent rage
Who know what’s next? I certainly don’t. Randomness is the way of the future. In the last year I have tripled my audience. That’s right 3 regular readers (and only one of them is my wife). In the next 365 days I’m going to double that or I’ll start posting naked pictures of myself on the blog. NOT A THREAT A PROMISE!
If I can be serious for a second. In all honesty I find writing a blog cathartic. Now I know not that many people read this. I know don’t provide earth shattering, life changing content but you know what it’s fun. I look forward to venting my spleen. I respect the fact that everyone out there is entitled to their opinion about everything. Well hello world here’s mine.
Anyway I’ve taken up to much of your time already (if you’ve got this far). I’m going to be here for the foreseeable future so if your every back this way again feel free to stop by.
Till next time remember
In 2008, a crackpot idiot was sent to prison by absolutely no-one for a crime he didn't commit. This man promptly escaped to the internet underground. Today, totally un-wanted by the government, he survives as an utter jackass. If you have a problem, if no one else can help (and I really mean worst case scenario), and if you can find him, maybe you can hire... The Cheesecake-Team.

Having recovered from my drunken ramblings last weekend Mrs Cheesecake and I braved the crappy weather on Saturday and headed to the cinema. Two flicks on the agenda Coraline followed by Angels & Demons.
Coraline was a real treat. Not only was glorious to look at we also had the added bonus of 3D. Much like The Nightmare Before Christmas Henry Selick has used his very distinctive style to enhance an already magical story. The voice work from all the actors worked well. Particularly enjoyed French & Saunders and Lovejoy as Coraline’s eccentric group of neighbours.
Angels & Demons was pretty good to. It’s been a while since I read the book but I was entertained by Tom Hanks and Ewan McGregor (henceforth to be known as ‘Action Pope’). I’ve always been a bit of a conspiracy nut so nice to see the IIlluminati getting some big screen action. Seriously though Google Illuminati these guys rock!
One slight dampener on the whole cinema going experience was Cineworld. I have been a card holder of their establishment for years. It make sense if you go to the flicks as often as I do why not pay a flat fee and then cram in as many films as you can. Recently however the price has increased. Now after some simple maths it was obvious to Mrs Cheesecake and I that this would still work in our favour so we continued with our monthly payment. This weekend however when we arrived to view Coraline we were informed and additional cost would be incurred due to the price of running a 3D film. Now it was only £1.50 but that ain’t the point. We already pay a monthly fee which was just increased and now we have to pay more. WTF is that all about? Come on Cineworld don’t let me down now. You promised lots of exciting new exclusives as a card holder and so far that has amounted to us forking out extra cash. What gives?
Till next time – Damn the Man!

As a social type experiment I decided earlier this evening I would write a blog after going to the pub. I thought it would be interesting to see what would happen. I will not make anyt amendmets to this blog and i willl type what ever I am thinmking about at the time.
So I wenty to the pub. It was good and I drank lots of very strong cider. Damn Tescos and their new policy about plastic bags!!!! How dare they try and charge me fors aservice they should provide for free. Bastards!!!
Norther rock are a shower of fuckwits as well . We cancelled a direct debit by mistake nd tey have sent us not 1, not 2 not 3 not 4 but 5 feckin letters . what a showeer of outragesous arseholes!
and another thing that really gets my goat is the fgact that Sky has advertistedd Sky Hd and then when you fill out the form they send you an e-mail saying it will take 3 months before thay can sort you out. Twats! How about playing ahead and havig some spare units available. 3 months for a delivery come on that sucks Sky. Pulll your fecking finger out.
Ok I think that rant is just about complete. The good news is that tomorrow I will wake up and stumble across this and be horrorified by the conetents.
Nighty Nght interweb. I loves you all

So I didn’t bother blogging about X-Men Origins: Wolverine. I saw it last week and it was pretty good but I was less moved by the experience than I had hoped to be. I’m sorry Huge Jackman (can we still be friends?). Loved the hair, big fan of the action but some spark was missing. That’s not to say I won’t go and see more if it appears - of course I will.
Today however I got to see the new Star Trek movie. Ironically I was not that bothered about seeing this but enjoyed it a lot more than I was expecting. The first 5 minutes actually even stirred some emotion in me I was that caught up in it.
I don’t want to give away the story. You lookin for spoilers keep feckin’ looking. I will say however I was concerned that a reboot of the franchise would not work but I think I can safely say I was wrong.
The performances were all good. Chris Pine made a convincingly arrogant yet charming James T Kirk. Zachary Quinto was channelling Nimoy which was particularly odd when they were on screen together. Everyone’s favourite rider of Rohan looks quite a lot like DeForest Kelly and seemed to be having fun. I’ll even forgive Mr Pegg and his attempt at a Scottish accent. Harold had left Kumar at the White Castle and was cutting about with a sword! Even Charlie Bartlett was there. I have to say I was disappointed he didn’t say ‘noooclear wessels’ but perhaps next time.
I’m sure there will be a sequel. The film zips along at a frenetic pace and is eye candy of the highest order. Its all good and I look forward to what happens next. Thanks Mr Abrams…more please
