The second incarnation of my blog
Working… all over the place in the past week and that pattern is set to continue from now on following a reorganisation at work. I have some new clients to meet and that’s always interesting and often challenging.
Watching… a few films with the first being Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa and I have to say that I only found it mildly amusing. I’ve never been impressed by the Alan Partridge character and I couldn’t see why this was a film at all; it could easily have been a TV programme and it gets a steady 6/10. The next film was an odd Italian film called I Am Love – it is a tragic love story that drifts from arty to dramatic. It struggled a bit and needed a little more story and this also get 6/10. The final film was Elysium starring Matt Damon. Pete found this film to be “silly” and of course it is and the story is ludacrous, however I thought the idea was interesting (even if not executed well) and the effects were impressive – so a 7/10, with one point for the CGI.
Walking… along the beach in North Norfolk as we spent the weekend in West Runton mainly eating, drinking and walking.
Running… at a hilly and muddy Sheringham Park in Norfolk for my 19th Parkrun on Saturday morning. Oh for a flat course without mud and water obstacles!
Listening… to the 1996 REM album New Adventures in Hi-Fi which Pete picked at random to play. I haven’t heard it for a long time and have forgotten what a great album this is, definitely underrated as a piece of work. The tracks The Wake-Up Bomb and Bittersweet Me are just great rockers.
