100

Gosh.

Hundredth post.

I may not have written as much as I wanted to since 1 January 2007 but I’ve –

  • run a total of 558kms (97kms of that sans mongrel);
  • picked up 170 books, comics and scripts, and read 137 right through;
  • and sat down to watch 128 films, DVDs and TV series, and watched 105 right to the (sometimes bitter) end.

‘S not bad. And because it’s that time of the year, I give you a list of notable and recommended reading and viewing experiences (in strict alphabetical order):

As for the running, I do it only so that I fit my clothes.

Happy new year.

  1. 28 Weeks Later is a good script??? You’re RECOMMENDING IT???????????????????

    Clearly all that running is draining the blood from your head. There is no other explanation my good friend. Or, if memory serves me, you are in New Zealand, so you are upside down to me. Another reason. Possibly a combo of the two. Yes, phew. Now it all makes sense again.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!

    ; )

  2. it scared me. and it was just a script. hang onnn –

    – just had a look at the downloadable script (at SimplyScripts) and it’s not the draft that made me think twice about turning lights off for a couple of days. if very potted memory serves, the one i read (courtesy of the NZWG library) opened on a cottage in the country. any day now, i’ll screw up the courage to watch the DVD.

    happy new year to you and yours!

  3. 08, who would have thought I would still be alive….

  4. whoa, Stevo – your comment had so many links that Akismet took it aside on the quiet, like.

    meanwhile, a 2007 shocker for me is that i’ve seen only one of the five films listed in IFC’s Most Awesome Action scenes. and as for 2008’s Must See Films by way of Slashfilm… i dunno. ‘s not affecting my heart beat or anything.
