OK, CAN’T DENY IT… LITTLE BIT EXCITED!!

So, I have finalised and submitted my next essay two weeks before it’s actually due and now I’m on holiday prep!!

I can’t deny it….. I’m just a tad excited.
Italy, here I come.
10 days, 2 villas, Florence, San Gimignano, Monteriggioni, food, wine and a family wedding!!

Oh yeah, no husband and no kids!!

I am thinking about blogging as I go but it highly depends on internet services whilst I’m out there.
If nothing is posted for the next two weeks, look out for one big blog when I get home!!

When I do get home I have two movies with my boys to see.
August 25th sees the release of Logan Lucky with Adam Driver and American Made with Domhnall Gleeson.

Adam and Dom

Do not expect me to be doing anything other than spending the entire day in the cinema.

It is going to be a busy couple of months for Domhnall with not one but 4 film releases to look forward to.
American Made on August 25th
Mother on Sept 15th
Goodbye Christopher Robin on Sept 29th
and of course, Star Wars on Dec 15th

He then has Peter rabbit due in March next year, one film, A Futile and Stupid Gesture, in post production with no release date, Crash Pad with no release date and is currently filming Little Stranger.
He’s been a busy boy!

BIT OF A MEH! DAY

It’s been a bit of a meh! day today.

I’m feeling old.
I’m feeling bloated.
I’m feeling as rough as most women once a month.
I just wanted to eat and drink all day…. which I did!!
And I’m fretting about this bloody presentation I have to do tomorrow.

I’ve been working my way through a few bottles of Corona and Bud.
I had home made spaghetti bolognese for lunch and I’ve just polished off a cheese and bacon toastie for tea.
I don’t say this very often but I seriously need some chocolate!!

Not surprising that I still feel bloated!

Anyway, to try and cheer myself up a little, I started watching Girls again, from the beginning.

Yeah yeah. I know Adam is shirtless in both these clips. So sue me!!
I told you I needed cheering up.

I also spent some time Youtubing the events of the San Diego Comic Con this weekend and then I continued my discovery of my new favourite couple.

Tom and Lance!
Tom and Lance 1

Although someone really needs to explain to me how this guy…..

Tom and Lance 2

Is 43 and 20 years older than this guy!!!

Tom and Lance 3

Seriously. 43!!
I’m 47 and feel so old.
Tom I am so jealous. Lance is a hottie!!

I guess you’re as young as you feel and Lance feels a 23 year old on a daily basis!
Sorry, I couldn’t resist.

Tom and Lance 4

Anyway, Tom’s Youtube channel has lots of Tom and Lance vlogs, including their wedding. They are an exceptionally cute couple. Check them out.

Right, enough time to do a little more Youtubing before bed.
I have to be up at the crack of dawn to get to Uni early.
I’m hoping to get a run through done with the rest of the group and as one of them hasn’t turned up to a single read through I’m not holding out much hope that tomorrow will go very well.
If he doesn’t show up early enough, I don’t know if I’ll be able to keep my mouth shut when I see him.

Watch this space.

HERE WE GO!!

Countdown has well and truly started for ‘The Last Jedi’ in December.

Today, Disney revealed a sizzle real from the filming.

Bedsides a very quick glimpse of General Hux looking very sleek with his mullet, Kylo is looking incredibly hot!!

Daisy rehearing to fight who? The Knights of Ren maybe?

TLJ 5

Adam rehearsing to fight who? His own Knights maybe? Actually I don’t really care. He just looks really hot!!

TLJ 4

John Boyega in an Imperial uniform!

TLJ 6

This is what I love about a build up to a movie like this.
We just don’t know anything. It’s all hearsay and rumour.
Just so long as Adam keeps looking pretty, I’ll keep eating it all up until I see it!

Can’t wait!!

MY APOLOGIES IN ADVANCE

It will come as no surprise to anyone that I am a HUGE Star Wars fan.

The Force Awakens was a breath of life into a fandom that has never truly died.
Since 1977 Star Wars has been a part of me. Han Solo was always my hero. Princess Leia was my heroine who showed me that I didn’t actually need a man to stand up for myself.

The fandom may have gone quiet for a few years and the prequels (although not bad) didn’t quite hit the mark but Christmas 2015 was the turning point.
Fandom got a slap in the face, was told to wake up and smell the roses. Star Wars was back and is set to be an even bigger part of our lives for the foreseable future.

We all had an Awakening. For me, in more ways than one.

With the Force Awakens came an obsession that has only gone from strength to strength over the last year and a half.
Kylo Ren…… or more precisely….. Adam Driver.

The more I found out about him, the more I watched him in things, the more I fell in love with him.
He’s amazing. There simply is no other word for him.


Such a humble and giving man and I continue to love him from the ears that are fighting for dominance on his head right down to his big feet!

The reason for this post is to apologise in advance for the spewing forth of everything Adam related over the next few months.

This past weekend saw the release of the teaser trailer for The Last Jedi that is due this December.
We finally got a glimpse of what Kylo’s scar is going to look like.

The Kylo snippets from the teaser were so tantalisingly quick it was frustrating.

So it’s now official, It’s out of the starting gate and all the hype leading up to the actual movie has officially started. There will be one, if not two more full trailers coming over the next few months followed by the press tours which mean a lot of new photos and interviews to enjoy!!

However……

Adam also has another film due around the end of August.
Logan Lucky with Daniel Craig. In which, two brothers played by Adam Driver and Channing Tatum, attempt to pull off a heist during a NASCAR race in North Carolina.

1113

Adam Driver, Channing Tatum, Daniel Craig, Sebastian Stan and even Domhnall Gleeson’s little brother Brian Gleeson… all in one movie.

I’m hoping a trailer will be dropping for this one very soon!!
Along with interviews and press tour and photos.

So my apologies (although I’m not actually sorry) are for not shutting up about Adam for the foreseable future.
I will be posting interview snippets and every photo I can lay my hands on alongside trailers and film clips.

BRING…. IT…. ON!!!

And just so I can hopefully convert some of you to the god that is Adam, I also want to leave this here for you to look at.
This…..
This is what makes adam so special.
Forget Star Wars.
This is Adam’s first love. His charity, Arts in the Armed Forces.
His short lived experience as a Marine was their loss but our gain!!

 

CHANGE OF PACE BUT A BUSY WEEK

I’ve been feeling like I needed a break over the last few weeks.
Then I realised I haven’t got any annual leave planned until the middle of August.
As I start Uni on the 24th I thought that next week would be a good time and work have been good enought to let me have some last minute annual leave.

It’s off to a good start.
Yesterday we FINALLY got our first look at The Last Jedi when the teaser trailer and the poster were released at Star Wars Celebration in Orlando.

OMG!! The scar…the smashed helmet…the anger in Kylo’s eyes.

The poster is also stunning.
Clever use of the Jedi symbol but ominously changing from blue to red!! and the awe struck look on Kylo’s face that we saw at the end of TFA but deliberately keeping the full scar hidden for a film reveal. This will soon be a new feature in one of our frames in the living room.

Last Jedi

So, now that’s out of my system I can relax and enjoy a family wedding that I will be leaving for in about 20 minutes.

Tomorrow I will be chillaxing and cooking a beef roast dinner for the first time in I can’t remember how long.

Then the rest of the week will be gutting the house from top to bottom and tackling the gardens for the first time this year. I need to get them under control now before I start Uni. I doubt I’ll have much time after that.

So, not so relaxing but a change of pace!!

PATERSON TAKEN TO THE NEXT LEVEL

It was five months ago when I won tickets to go and see Adam Driver’s (at the time) new film ‘Paterson’ in London with a Q+A with Adam himself and Tim Robey.

You can read what I had to say HERE

A couple of months ago I pre-ordered the Bluray and it is officially due for release here in the UK tomorrow.

However, my copy showed up while I was at work yesterday so I just had to watch it last night before bed.

Tonight I decided to have a quick look for any extras that may have been on the disk, not that I was expecting much.
I am absolutely over the moon because one of the extras on the disk is the very same Q+A with Tim Robey that we saw in London!!

It has just made this film all the more magical for me.

NO NEED TO APOLOGISE

Adam, baby, no need to apologise.
It was hilarious!!!
