Well, folks, another year done and over with. I’m probably just staying home this time around to ring in the New Year. Nothing is going to beat seeing VNV Nation last New Year’s eve at the Avalon (what used to be known as the Palace in Hollywood…).
I read that several interpretations of various prophecies foretell the end of the world is going to happen in the New Year. The specific date? June 6th 2006 which depending how you write your dates can be seen as 06/06/06. It’s a Tuesday- wonder what new CD’s/DVD’s are released that day…
Link to a teenager’s adventure in Bagdad http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/10643329/. Kid’s got balls I’ll tell you that. Kinda reminds me when I went to HK with Holly- where everyone looked like me but I had no idea what the hell anyone was saying (with the exception of Gau Cho Wah!). Everyone would talk to me in Cantonese and I’d just smile politely…I would almost automatically say ‘No habla espanol’ then remember that I was about a thousand miles away from the nearest Mexican.

Monkey-Operated-Ninja-Robots…I just love that concept. It’s the future, why haven’t I seen this yet?
Most anticipated Films of 2006:
Superman: this better kick ass
The Departed: Remake of Infernal Affairs- my fave HK Trilogy of films although Chris Doyle has been quoted that Martin Scorsese hasn’t been faithful to the look of the originals…
Fearless: Jet Li’s last martial arts flick for now…and it just looks cool
V For Vendetta: Never read the book despite loving Alan Moore’s work.
X3: Despite Brett Ratner, I’m still curious…
Pirates of the Caribbean 2: The Two-Pistol Packing God Known as Chow Yun Fat is in this!
Casino Royale: Never saw the original movie and never read the book- but interested to see how they reinvent James Bond for the War on Terror Generation
Ultraviolet: Because I adore Milla Jovovich and enjoyed the movie Equilibrium
Annapolis: Interested about how the director of Better Luck Tomorrow deals with a big budget
The Sentinel: looks like a wannabe 24 complete with Kiefer!
Clerks 2: Nagga, nagga NOOCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Cure’s new album and tour
The 5th season of 24
An honest-to-goodness vacation...
Happy New Years to everyone. Stay Safe and don't forget your hangover medication and to stay away from any Monkey-Operated-Ninja-Robots.
