    So I went and saw these blokes on the weekend. I was gonna call them cnuts, but I already did and they didn't like it. Didn't like boos either, or having shit thrown at them either. Seriously, kids these days. They were pretty good but.

    Just the two of them mind.
    But they had these guys on first, who were a front row of five guitars and a back row of a drummer and a percussionist.

    They were good too.
    And both of my companions were lovely women. Which is why I should never gotten to that crapaoke Billy Joel point later. But I felt I should admit my failings, as an example like.
    Their arses are undeniably growing however. Just saying.

    Actually no, the first song was better, but the second clip had a Hill's Hoist in it. Mmm, natch, as the kiddies would possibly say?

    So after my last drunken TAN diatribe about my family, I took at a long look at myself, and said hmm you might need some help son.
    And then after that hungover long look I took another long soberer look, and was a bit disturbed that I 'd called myself son. But I couldn't deny that a bit of outside help couldn't hurt, and I remembered that as the son of a soldier I can apparently get free outside help, so fuck it, I called veteran's affairs. G'day I'm the son of a preacher man who had previously killed people for you (us?), and I reckon I'd like to talk about it. She was great on the phone. And then I got busy again and embarrassed for having wanted counseling, so I dodged it, not least because I'm a new gov't employee and don't want to tell my employer's other employees my deepest darkest secrets; but she called me back today and I reckon I should go in for a chat, and maybe I should pretend they'll respect the Hippocratic and it'll all be ok. Or something.
    Either way, I'm sure you'll all hear how it goes.

    So the lovely young lady in question texted today. ‘What time are the flowers coming, I want make sure I’m in the office’
    ‘What time do you get back from the gym?’

    classic1's review of Alien : Covenant

    A space ship containing a crew of retards and 2000 colonists go in to space on their way to a new planet. Their ship gets blasted by a solar flare or something, killing captain James Franco, who burns to death. That is the highlight of the movie.

    The crew then receive a signal from some other planet and make about 700 bad decisions (the colonists sleep through all this) that anyone familiar with risk analysis, with experience in incident management or even a modicum of common sense would not have made. One bad decision after another leads to them all dying. You won't care because they are all dickheads. On a final note, there's no tension because the movie is more predictable than an episode of Friends.

    One star for Franco burning to death, one star because the movie at least looks quality. 2 out of 5 stars.

    To be honest, I'm not a big superhero movie fan. I only watched this one because I have seen a couple of other movies Taika Waititi directed, so I thought this would be a bit different from the standard superhero fare.

    And it is.

    It's quite a funny movie.
