January 2002

January's always quite a month for me. Not only do I celebrate my own birthday, but also that of my brother Barry.

What happened this particular January? Well, after doing absolutely NOTHING for New Year's Eve (I laid on the couch, eating chips, drinking pop and watching Unbreakable), I decided I needed to be more sociable. When my birthday rolled around I was in Kitchener with my good friends, eating, drinking, carousing and generally having a great time. This has been followed by many weekends of clubbing and socializing, and I'm very happy about that...


Lord Of The Rings - saw it two more times (for a total of three) with friends who hadn't managed to see it before

Impostor - Gary Sinise never disappoints, but even so this movie really felt like it was meant to be much shorter and was stretched. Wait a minute, it was...


Ravenous, which I've had on my list since last summer. 

A Perfect Murder is better than you might think.
Finally replaced Withnail & I with the Criterion edition, worth every penny.

And, of course, the most momentous thing: The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across The 8th Dimension...

New Music:

David Bowie's Christiane F - Christmas present from John and Liz
