The weather in Brisbane has been fantasticly gloriously cold. No, i'm not being sarcastic, I really actually do enjoy the cold as much as I hate and loath the heat. Temperatures in Brisbane have been going as low as 5 degrees in the past few days (I can here many nothern-hemisphere people laughing "yeah right that's cold?"), but for Brisbane that's almost as cold as it gets here, and I for one am grateful for it.
Anywho, enough talk of the weather. Friday night we saw Terminator: Salvation, and despite low expectations, I thought it was pretty good. Although it was good, i would say it's definitely not great. It was a very dark Terminator movie, almost totally devoid of brief comedic moments that peppered the last two Terminator movies.
I did feel kind of jipped that one of the big plot-twists of the movie (Sam Worthington's character being part-machine) was spoilt months previously by some over-exposing trailers. I was annoyed by that, as it wasn't revealed until half-way through the movie, so it killed part of the story for me. That and half of the plot and time-travel stuff doesn't make sense or logic, but you'd be crazy to try and analyse these kinds of movies for it anyway.
I really don't like Christian Bale, but I really can't imagine who else they could have cast in this movie in the John Connor role. He used his 'Batman' voice a little too much for my liking ;). Plus this is really funny.
Moving on, yesterday was the next chapter in the 'having no hair' saga: as alluded to in the entry from a while back when I first had it mostly cut off, there was always going to be a lot more maintenance of the short cut.
There was no way that I would be going to the hairdressers every few weeks to get it trimmed, so this week we bought some home hair-clippers, and today was our first run cutting it ourselves.
Des and Mum did a good job (#2 all over) despite me being an irritating customer. I'm confident that with a little practice i'll have some nice tracks and a cool rattail. Just kidding...
