True & Funny Secret!

The future is…

March 11, 2010

Interestingly I snapped out of lethargy for long enough the other week to apply for a job. It’s a promotion within my existing work place actually (bottom feeder to management), but a job none the less. Considering how down I usually am about my job, it’s come as a surprise (perhaps even to me) how enthusiastic I am about the prospect. For the first time in a long time I feel as though I have a goal for myself, and I have to say, I’m excited about it. I want this job.

I had my interview today, which I think went well. The problem is that I’m starting to get the feeling that the company may decide to employ externally rather than up through the ranks. The other negative is that if they do decide for an internal climbing of the ladder, not only one of my close friends, but also my girlfriend have gone for the same job – awkward much?!

Ah well, fingers crossed, hope for the best and let’s see what happens…

Damn Hollywood!

March 3, 2010

Ok, so I’ve just discovered something that has got me very VERY upset. One of my favourite British comedies of recent years is Death at a Funeral, and for some crazy reason the powers that be at Hollywood have decided they need to taint this by remaking it. As someone that has studied the film industry and have often longed to be apart of it, I hang my head in shame. What has come of the World? Has no one heard the phrase – If it’s not broke, don’t fix it?!

I’ve watched the trailer for this abomination, and it is literally the same film, but with a sprinkling of black jokes (they’ve gone for a largely African-American cast) and a few slapstick moments thrown in there for poor measure. For starters, there’s no way that James Marsden will ever be able to compete with the genius performance from Alan Tudyk (their character get’s accidentally drugged with hallucinogens  just before the funeral). The other performances then just seem over played and stereotypically ‘black’. And whats more, is that Peter Dinklage (the guy that plays the midget), is going to play the same character in this American version. Changing the character from a Peter to a Frank …good work there Hollywood

 …this is just retarded.

Doubt me?! You can tell all of this (and so much more…) from the trailers alone!

Happy St. David’s Day!

 

To be born Welsh,
Is to be born privileged,
Not with a silver spoon in your mouth,
But music in your blood,
And poetry in your soul.
