And with heavy heart we bid farewell to George Romero. Both he and Dario Argento along with Tobe Hooper & John Carpenter had a huge impact on my early film-watching life and my love of the genre.

 

George was a great director, never one to go for huge budgets or to be bound by studio execs and chose to tell his stories his way.

 

I had the very good fortune to talk to him briefly a few years back at MIFF. Always generous with his time & always there for his fans.

 

I'm going to miss him.

Florida would be way to similar to Darwin for me including the cyclonic weather.

Got caught in the mother of all downpours early this morning. I was on my Electric bike too :-(

 

The driving rain meant I had my head down when I rode under a subway and "Whoooosh" I found myself in about a metre of water ! The electrics started playing funny buggers after that !!

 

Got home and my iPhone is buggered too

 

Grrr

Normal Apple procedure seems to be replace logic board at customer's cost whether it needs to be or not.

I get the feeling a big part of their revenue stream is just from service ripoffs.

Or if it's an older phone, try to sell you new model.

I always said that music sounded like what teens listened to when they're suicidal, I never hoped for it to be true though.

 

I hated that music growing up, but now it reminds me of the end of primaryschool\start of highschool.... and I seem to like it for the memories.

 Outcast is in the UK, summer hasn't arrived yet - typically its next week and lasts 24 hours :)

 

I do like the nation of my birth but I had to admit to my wife last week that I have not owned a raincoat since the one I brought out with me wore out and that was decades ago - never have owned an umbrella, there or here - in England you get wet - end of story :)

More likely a poor corporate entity who've offshored to a 6 phone call centre in India to help keep that profit at $6 Billion PA rather than $5.999 Billion.

I like touch screens but on screen keyboards don't replace real keyboards if you actually want to type fast.
Even if it is a small blue tooth keyboard and not a full sized querty one.
