Greetings to new readers and regulars alike. Wasting no time at all, I'll get on with what I usually do...Music And Photography
It mightn't be a regular occurrence for many where you are able to take two things that you love doing, and combine them into one evening - but for me, it just happens - and I'm grateful for it. Since I spend the large part of my social life going to gigs, concerts, and other music events; I've found it the perfect opportunity to take my camera along and capture what I'm seeing. And why shouldn't I? I love music, and I love photography.
This Friday just passed, I went to The Late Room in Manchester
for the first time to watch the HMV Showcase
on that night. In particular, I was going along to witness Belief System
play, and I'd planned on taking my camera along too - to take some shots for the band.
What's more, Friday night was the second gig that I've attended on my own - but regardless of not going with anyone, I met a few great people - and a fun time was had by all. So, I'd quickly like to wave a quick hello to those new people I met; namely Rangan's mate Kate, and her friends.
If everyone who reads this could check out the photos
and leave some comments, or rate them - that'd be grand.Film And Cinema
So, whilst Friday was a music and photography night, I fancied something a little bit different tonight. So, I went to the cinema with my good friends Hassan and Hocine to see The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe
The film on a whole was alright. It was very watch-able, and the story was gripping enough to get into. One problem that I found though, was that because I've read the book - I'd entered the movie having my own perceptions of what certain parts of the film should look like. Yet, I was sitting down to watch someone else's interpretation of the film - making me think 'I would've done that differently
' at various points of the story.
This can make it slightly off-putting, and is the exact reason why I'm dreading the creation of The Hobbit
- because I absolutely adore that book, and probably will be disappointed by the film. Back to Narnia, mind, it's a movie to go and watch, or rent. But I'm not so keen as to be buying the DVD.World Wide Web
For those that like to use the web, allow me to introduce Yahoo! Answers
. The idea is that if you want to know the answer to a question, you ask it. Asking the question will see other members go searching the net, or using what they know, to give you an answer.
Whilst this could be a brilliant tool and put to good use, and regardless of whether you're 'diggin' the educational potential or not, there's going to be a fair number of stupid questions and equally silly answers to entertain you for a good half hour - so check it out.Thank You
And whilst you're in the mood for checking links out, why not check the Opera Community home-page
and find out who's the Member Of The Week
. That's right
, its me. And I'm chuffed to bits - it's like I've found fame of my very own.
What concerns me though, is that I've seen a load of people clicking through to my blog but nobody ever comments. My friend Vikki
said it's because I don't have breasts, and I think she has a point. Maybe if I grow some... then will you comment on my blog?The Rest
Not much else is happening right now in the world of me; but here's what is:I think my bestest mate in the whole world is getting a bit homesick. Or, at least, she's missing her friends. See, Amanda moved to Leeds in September to go to university, and whilst she's quite independent - she's been texting and writing to me saying she misses and loves me. Hopefully I can cheer her up a bit tomorrow when she calls me.
And aside from that... I have nothing else to share. So, remember to check out the gig photos
