About my collections

My collection can beat up your collection.

Currently reading whatever my daughter wants read to her. Hopefully one day soon she'll figure out how to read & I can read for myself again. Not that I don't enjoy reading to her, but I miss reading for me.

"The Den put an interesting spin on the home invasion film I thought, albeit a gimmicky one. Agreed that the way it's shot doesn't work so well. I'll check out The Last Circus soon then."

Reality
Prior to Wrong Cops this film would have placed higher on my list, but since that film was kind of a mess I'm tempering my expectations here. I'll still definitely see this though as Dupieux is easily one of the most interesting directors working today.

About me

A few notes to my fellow Listal users:


- If we have NOT interacted on here in some way (an exchange of votes, comments, messages, etc.) then I will DENY your friend request. That said, I'm always open to finding new people that share my interests, I just don't like adding people as friends when I have no idea who they are.
- I used to stop by everyone's profile to say thanks for votes, but lately it seems like people don't care much about that. So if you vote for something of mine, just know that it's appreciated & I thank you. I may still occasionally say thanks, but I'm not going to make a frequent habit of it anymore.
- I will definitely drop by your profile to discuss comments, unless you don't have a comments section where I can do so. In such cases I will most likely reply in a comment that follows yours.
- PLEASE only leave me comments to check out lists that you know I'd be interested in. And for the record I'm NEVER interested in lists of "hot" people, unless there's some content mocking them or something to make them interesting. I can find eye candy just fine if I want to, thanks.

Also, I am exploring options for more movies, since my camera kit keeps expanding. I have over $5000 worth of stuff now.

Glad you also loved Mad Max Fury Road, the internet is full of insecure males who keep calling it feminist propaganda, lol.

I've been a Mad Max fan for about 10 years, and it satisfied me greatly. The original Mad Max was the very first R18+ movie (Australian rating, equivalent of NC-17) that I owned on DVD. And I wasn't even 18. Hehe.

Hey, there. Realized that you watched my monthly horror journal last year. Here's the new one: http://www.listal.com/list/2015-horror-journal :)
Posted: 3 weeks ago at May 8 7:17
Hey buddy! Yeah, I hear ya about missing our little listal community of old. My life, both in the broad sense and in terms of my day to day schedule, has been vastly different over the past year and more than it was three and four years ago when I was active around here.

Fantastic to hear that you're working for a company that you believe in and one that believes in you. That's great news. And awesome that you've got the little one (who it sounds is rapidly becoming not so little-- kindergarten--sheesh!)in your care as often as you do.

Briefly, what you've missed:

Broke up with longterm girlfriend
Got together with woman I've known and loved for years
Moved out into house in the "sticks" with said amazing woman
and her three year old boxer/bulldog mix.
Scrapped old car
Bought new car
Bought new boxer puppy, making us a happy 2 dog household.
Lots of other stuff, ups and downs, but mostly for the good.

Basically I changed girlfriends, homes, cars in March of 2014. The only major thing that stayed the same was my job, and that's still the case. I'm in many ways happier and healthier than I've ever been, and in plenty of ways every bit as neurotic and crazy as ever. And that, briefly, is where things are at.

Have yourself a real nice weekend!

Cheers, man. I assume by commentary you mean the trivia track. I thought it'd be a nice touch for those who care enough.

I actually have tonnes & tonnes of footage, enough to make an alternative cut of the movie, and I do want to make a documentary on the whole process. I'm kinda buried in all the TV shows I'm watching right now, but the documentary would be my next big undertaking. I'm doing paid video work at the moment with my awesome equipment that I keep augmenting, too :)

Have a good weekend too, mate! It's Anzac Day today, the hundredth anniversary. Big day in Oz. Especially potent due to my time in the army.

Did you hear that Netflix finally came to Australia about a month ago? It's been non-stop for me ever since, haha. I mainly watch TV shows though, just binged through Arrow. Now I've decided to catch up on Game of Thrones.

So Dolph signed my Expendables trilogy Blu-ray with "Bring it, Happy Feet!" and I got more photos and such. I won a Skin Trade t-shirt on Friday, and wore it for the premiere on Sunday. Dolph liked very much. Ah, such awesome.

Still waiting for you to watch my movie ;)

Haha all good mate.

Dolph was a gentle giant and a pleasure to meet. I wrote a report for Manly Movie:
http://www.manlymovie.net/2015/04/report-dolph-lundgrens-melbourne-appearance.html

He signed my Universal Soldier Blu-ray with "I'm all ears."

I'm attending Dolph's Brisbane event this coming Friday, and I'll be going to the Skin Trade world premiere (Dolph & Tony Jaa) on Sunday, with Dolph attending.

Heh, I was just looking back on my list of films I wanted to see at the cinema but never will... Rocky 4 is on there. Funny, because I'm going to a Rocky 4 screening in April, with Dolph fucking Lundgren in attendance. I will be getting a meet and greet, a photo with him, and an autograph on top of the Q&A before the movie....

I can't say much except, nothing is confirmed. And I now own thousands of dollars worth of quality camera gear.
