This is a show I am into huge right now and I thought I should share.

This is a quick littler teaser about the show, definitely check this and if you dig it peep the links below.

Seeing these a while back is what got me into the show.
The first link is for the first 8 minutes of a 15 minute behind the scenes look. The second is for the rest. Enjoy

Terminator Review (Brontman vs. McInnis)

Brontman's Review... was bad
It started half decent, but as the story progressed I found myself constantly questioning the logic of this and that, by the last 40 mins I kept saying over and over again that makes no sense, why would they do that, that is so stupid. Yeah, as the credits rolled I said to roomie " that movie was just an utterly pointless and stupid cash grab........then went and rented The Terminator to wash the bad taste of Salvation out of our mouths ......that sounded gay .......yeah it was just plain and simply stupid and gimicky....Bale was just kind of bad....he was too gruff and over the top....WHY THE FUCK DO PEOPLE KEEP CASTING Common, he's so bad! He just shows up and plays himself in every movie he does...lame...the guy who played young Kyle Reese was actually good, and Sam Worthington as the terminator was also really good......and as for the D.P. who took Bale's verbal abuse...well his work was pretty good for most of the movie...plenty o' digital finishing though.......why the fuck did they give this movie to the charlie's angel guy?????????
1.5 out of 5 stars

My Review...

Not the world's greatest film but it was decent all the way through. If you're a fan of the Terminator series you should be able to sit through this movie and enjoy it. Seeing this part of the story line should have been your dream since the first film.
There were two points when I questioned the film just like Jeff, one involving a Truck with a ball crane and another involving a fire. Those scenes didn't kill the film for me but I did read Jeff's review prior to going which had me watching for things I could question. When going to see this movie don't go putting it up on a pedestal. Keep in mind that you are seeing a Sci-Fi Movie about a possible future. It's well done for what it is. The story was rather interesting and when it wasn't the action kept you focused.
See the movie if you like the old Terminators or if you dig the Sci-Fi genre.

From Then Till Now

Haven't used this in a while...

I'm sitting here trying to think about what's been happening over the past month and all I can really think about is work.
That's all I have really been doing this past month.

I did do my taxes which ended up having a happy ending. I received quite a decent sum from our government. Most of what I claimed I didn't pay taxes on... can't wait for that audit...
When my return popped up in my account I took all of LABU (the house I live in) out for drinks and pool, it was a really good time. I felt like a baller that night.

Two of my housemates, Tom and Charlie, decided to rent a house in Medan for themselves. They picked a really nice place on the edge of town in a quiet complex. Getting a place there was pretty tempting. It's a single floor house with a garage and it only cost them 15 Million Rupiah for the year which translates into about 15o0 Canadian. It blows my mind because back in Toronto my place was 1150 a month...
I was later convinced that it wouldn't be the best idea for me to get one because I will likely be here only for one more year before I move on.

Speaking of which, when my new contract starts I will be moving from IEC (my school) to SIA which is IEC's "sister school". SIA is run like an actual school, because it is an actual school, where as IEC is just an English school. I am excited for the new challenge and the change of pace. My schedule now is basically all evening shifts which is 1:30 - 9:00. When I head to SIA I will be on 9-6ers.
It seems like it's the best option for me. I wouldn't have to worry about finding another job, and since my school is run by the same "MAN" I could transfer very easily. Another bonus is that I wouldn't have to move, and I should get a half-decent pay increase once a new contract is signed.

Next year will be JAPAN. That is a definite. I don't have a job set up yet but I am extremely determined to go live and work there. I have been or quite a long time.
I have been talking to a few friends from Japan that I use to work with in Toronto who are now back in Japan and they are on the lookout for jobs for me.
My one pal Kazuki hooked me up with a really good website for jobs in Japan and I have been browsing it a lot. It seems like most schools there are looking for 2 years experience minimum which I will have by then so I am stoked.

I will be off to China in a month which I am extremely amped for...
and damn I'll be 24 in less than a week... I don't feel 24
