Make way for 2D!

I am giggling and vibrating with delight at viewing this, ladies and gentlemen, may I introduce what I have been waiting for since the last 2D animated feature of 'Home on the Range'....

Bad news is (Or what I have just read via IMDB) the release in the UK is not happening until 12th February 2010. I'm not really sure WHY this is the case, since even Germany gets a showing on the 10th of December, this year. Hmmm, maybe I can collaborate it with tripping from Disneyland Paris on the 6th? Since I am there for four days. WOOOOOO! Oh yesh, I am going to Disneyland Paris on the 6th Dec, my 11th visit :D

In that time, I can atleast distract myself with 'Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen' (24th June), 'Terminator: Salvation' (3rd June) and Wolfman (6th November).

I have seen 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine', which was absolutely gawd damn terrible. I have no idea how Marvel even let the studios butcher classic characters like this. I can atleast commend them for giving me "LOLing" moments due to so many over the top explosions and "RAWR, I AM ANGRY" segments. Whatever, this film was what they say in internet speak as "Epic fail".

In other news, I was hired as a nightclub photographer, oh yesh, I was hired. BUT, there were several negative factors to this job title.
- It was all about nothing to do with the PHOTOGRAPHY aspect, and more about exploiting the drunk (Which usually isn't a bad thing) to purchase terribly made merch, which the photograph becomes part of; usually a keyring or a laminated picture to wedge in your wallet, you get the jist.
- They treat you as though you're a self employed business, which in translation "we can have the right to blame you for anything".
- Oh, of course, the aspect of walking home at 3am on a Saturday night in a pretty dodgy area alone, surrounded by an entirely drunken city was the final curtain for this position.
So, this time, I felt as though I needed to pass on this round and reject their offer.

My driving theory test nudges ever closer, just over a week until I have to buckle up (Ha, pun!) and pass a test for the first time in atleast seven years. Time for ultimate revision!
