Little Things You Hate

Our man isn't in the West
We had a discussion when she was born. The deal was she is supposed to live around us and our needs not the other way around. I said no boob milk unless she agreed.
Hasn’t quite worked out like that though.
Also turns out I’m the one that’s gotten little to no boob since she was born!
This isn't painting an inspiring picture of parenthood.

books that don't put a synopsis on the back but a series of short quotes saying how great it is. if i have no idea what its about i don't care how good someone I don't know says it is.
I saw an advertisment in a print magazine at work, some sort of anti ageifier, full page add with about eight 5 star reviews plastered across the majority of the page. Reading the reviews i noticed it was always; 'review...' - john smith (fb).
Asked someone what fb means.. facebook.
8 facebook users left 5 star reviews. The company then paid to use them as advertising through a media facebook is killing off.
Reviews are bullshit. I know comics who would get a 'not a great show' - the age. One comedy festival. Next festival smack in the middle of their poster '...great show' - the Age.
Although i've read some pretty shonky synopses in my time also.

Family went to see the inlaws yesterday so i booked myself a ticket to a movie last night. First ticket sold - allocated seats.
Turn up last night and there are two people in the cinema. They are sitting in my booked seat. Proceed to talk through the movie.
First Trip to the cinema since November 2019.
Total number of seats in the cinema = 190.
Total number of patrons = 8.
Total number of can'ts = 2

Saw Nobody. Kinda like a middle aged John Wick. Lot's of violence and an eclectic sound track.
Was nice to watch a movie without continually turning the volume up for dialogue and down for action. The joys of small kids.

I can pretty much generalise about everything on offer atm


STINKER!


Studios can’t and won’t release anything decent for a few reasons until the world recovers

The marketing campaigns need to be executed simultaneously world wide to maximise profits. Studios take 45-55% of the ticket price for the first 2-4 weeks a movie plays. They need maximum attendance at the start.

Piracy is still an issue. Even though tracking where a movie was stolen from is easy now, once the cat is out of the bag, many many millions are lost.

Until the majority of US and EU cinemas are back open, it’s b and c grade dregs for now. Or local productions like the Dry, which was really good.


With mutant strains on the loose, I’m starting to think all of 2021 is lost too as far as Hollywood studio releases are concerned.
