Raccoon

raccoon_5916 Looked out the window today to see a raccoon handing of the neighbours clothes line pole. They have a bird feeder hang off it. Time I got the camera out he was on the ground. Still got one good picture. There seems to be more raccoons around this year. There was two in the backyard a few weeks back having a big old fight over the compost bin. It was funny as hell, I opened the window and told them to knock it off. They stop dead in there tracks and have me this funny look. They stopped and went there separate ways. I had a good laugh. Here is the best picture I got.

The Machine Girl Review

Posted in Review's with tags , on May 29, 2008 by getbent57

machinegirl01 I had to check out The Machine Girl after seeing some pictures of this girl with this big gun on her arm. Oh my, this movie was not what I expected. It one of those horror movies with lots and I means lots of over the top gore. Its all a bit silly, but if it tried to be more “real” it would have came off all wrong. The Japanese have some crazy movie ideas. Check out the trailer.

This is not for everyone, but worth checking out.

By Any Means

Posted in Just something to say with tags , on May 28, 2008 by getbent57

photos I came across this yesterday while looking to see what Charley Boorman was up to. It looks like he is on a new adventure call By Any Means. According to Wikipedai.org he will travel from Ireland to Sydney, Australia “by any means”. Using each countries native form of transport. They are trying not to use big airlines. This is going to be on TV in the UK. It sounds like a good watch just like the other adventures he was on. Long Way Around, Race To Dakar and Long Way Down. There is a nice interview on youtube talking about his trip.

Finished GTA IV

Posted in Just something to say with tags , on May 27, 2008 by getbent57

I finished GTA IV last night. And I only cheated on a few missions. Only if I kept dying or got tired of running from the cops during the missions. Over all the story was good. Pretty much in line with the other GTA games. With a lot more swearing. This one is the funniest one for sure. Now I am going to try and get all the side stuff, like the cars and pigeons. All so might try to get into the multiplayer. Only tired that a few times. There is so much to looks and and exploder, I could spend hours doing that. This is one of the best games ever made.

Here are some good maps.

A very cool interactive map here.

And an awesome pigeon map here.

Rambo Review

Posted in Review's with tags , on May 26, 2008 by getbent57

poster-rambo As a kid I sort of remember see one or two of the other Rambo movies. I was at a birthday party and one kid brought it with him. Weren’t going to be able to watch it, but the kid said his parents took out all the “bad words”. That being said, if this new Rambo film was that one we watched, nightmares for sure. This has to be the most violent movie I have ever seen. Not saying its a bad thing. Most definitely has an R rating for a good reason. In most action movies you may see a few people get chopped, blown or shot up. But in this movie ever one gets blasted to hell in very graphic manner.

Over all the story is week, how ever there is a message here about the war in Burma . Over all its an action movie with lots of over the top violence. A rent for sure.
