It was our turn for the Olympic Stick yesterday. It passed through my town being carried by some bloke I've never seen or heard of before. He had a dog too, and it goes everywhere with him when he goes out to work. His job is some sort of fire and rescue thing. What I want to know is why we didn't have someone famous with very little connection to the area carry it through like in so many other towns around this once great country. Yes, I'm on one as usual. The town council are really what's got up my nose and their efforts to welcome the Stick. they closed 60% of roads when the route only went along two. Slight over kill and a damned inconvienence to the normal folk who like me were coming home from work and had a massive de-tour of a journey that would normally take 5 mins at most. but this is what made me shake my head with disbelief.........

Prometheus, I've been waiting for it since I first heard Ridley Scott made the announcement he was re-visiting the Alien Universe with a prequel to the original Alien film. OK, it's not a sequel.....but it almost is and god it's good. The Engineer creature is so cool but not in it enough and theres to many questions left unanswered. I'm not interested in this 3D having seen several films that it hasn't worked on, however, the 3D in this has been done very well.
