Just going to dash in a quick blog today.
Saw XXX - State of the Union last night. It wont win any Oscars but given what it is; an action film, its actually not that bad a movie. At least I didn't feel cheated out of my 10 bucks like I do sometimes when I go to the movies. If you ask me the storyline may even be more coherent than the first one and Ice Cube's Darius Stone is probably one of the better roles he's taken recently since Darius just reminds me of the old glaring bad man Ice Cube from the Amerikka's Most Wanted days who claimed he was album that N*** ya love ta hate. Wonder why State of the Union isn't making as much cash as the first Triple X though? Is it because Vin Deisel is missing or is it that with Ice Cube, Xzibit, Sam Jackson and Nona Gaye its being perceived as a black film or is it just that everyone thinks the movie sucks? By the way Nona Gaye is hot.
Yesterday was elections in Britain and Tony Blair won an historic third term although with a dramatically reduced majority. What's interesting to me here is I've been reading some stories about his Chancellor to the Exchequer (that's finance minister in common folk language) Gordon Brown who was/is also his rival for the top job in the Labour party and is looked at as the heir apparent to the position of PM. Apparently at times their relationship has been rather frosty since Brown is itching to get that spot. Remind you Canadian guys of anyone? Yep good old current Canadian PM Paul Martin. Martin was Prime Minister Jean Chretien's Finance Minister as well and coveted that PM position so badly that he really pushed Chretien into retirement. But as the saying goes be careful what you wish for because your wish may come true. So Martin got his PM spot but now he is having quite a battle dealing with scandals and holding his minority government together too. I hope that Mr Brown don't end up the same way.
Third thing to talk about; NBA playoffs. Boston vs Indiana, Paul Pierce almost totally screwed it up for Boston last night getting tossed at the end of regulation. It was Indiana's game to win at points but they messed up and Boston won taking it to a game 7. Houston vs Dallas also going to game 7. Should be fun on Saturday night. Go Indiana, Go Dallas (hush Abeni!).
And finally while checking Yahoo for a story on the British elections this headline caught my attention Whore College offers hands on Training. Sign of the times. Have a great weekend folks.
