As we prepare the a heatwave down here in the city of churches – Adelaide, there’s only one movie to sit back in the air cond. comfort and watch, that being, Spike Lee’s Do The Right Thing. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0097216/
Just as I watch, David Fincher’s – Se7en when it rains for days.
Well well well, could we get Hollywood down under?
Advertising man Brenton Bockhas put forward the idea of having a Hollywood style sign
placed at the foothills of the Adelaide Hills, here in Adelaide, (site creators home town)
South Australia. “I would like to see people standing in the middle of Rundle Mall on New Year’s Eve and to look up at the sign and see a laser light show,” Mr Bock said.
But wait there’s more! I found out this info, about the licensing rights to
the Hollywood sign. Apparently, the rights to the sign are actually owned
by an Australian, living here in Adelaide!
Ok movie-making lovers – Happy New Year and all that jazz.
I’ve been busy sorry, living in temporary accommodation while I
wait until all the who hah of buying a house has gone thru!
This will be the third house that I have purchased and I am hoping that this
will be the one they carry me out in a box! On the subject of death and all associated, if any readers are down under in the land of OZ here, in particular in the city, in the city of murders, er churches actually they call it,
I urge you to get along on January 17th to TRASHARAMA Film Festival.

According to Coroner Ed Winters, the bodies were so badly burned they would take days to positively identify. Referring of course to the recent news of Paul Walker dying as a passenger in a car in Santa Clarita, California.
Whatever one may have thought of his acting abilities, or other, it is still a tragedy, hearing the recent news of the death of Paul walker.
Personally, I was not a fan of The fast and Furious movies. I am sure they are a lot of fun but I like my movies with a bit more “soul” to them.
My favourite Paul Walker film is Into The Blue, oh and the one with the snow dogs, Eight Below.
Ok, so a few days after I sent of my contact details to the advert I recived a call from a woman.
This woman sounded like that everything she was saying to me was being read from A SCRIPT, that’s one thing I picked up straight away. She went onto say that RIGHT now they were in need of extras for features, commercials and more, hell she even named a few features supposedly being shot in Australia NOW! ( I have not done the research on these as yet)
Anyway she made it sound very scripted, and furthermore she INSISTED that I read completely the terms and conditions that she was going to send me.
