After an amazing couple of weeks doing work experience, I received a chunk of money for my time there, and after much deliberation I decided what I was going to buy. Various things flashed through my mind, including a new phone to replace the shocking piece of equipment I've got now (a story for another time), as well as a TV, and various other fancy electronics.
I finally settled on a new computer, one with all the bells and whistles that would go at warp speed and make me coffee in the morning. For the more technical among you, I have a list of components which I made it with. You might be wondering why I chose certain parts, I'll justify my choices now.

That's right, I'm not dead - sorry to disappoint! Before you all start criticising my lack of blogging I figure I better give some kind of glimpse into what's kept me away from the blog since my rather large number of Film Friday posts just over a week ago, and what could possibly be important enough to stop me doing last weeks Film Friday or Thing of the Week (although that's been rather unsuccessful as of yet, I've not spent enough time hunting down things worthy of a Thing of the Week post).
I'll start off with my excuse for not doing a Film Friday last week. Other than having such a mega Film Friday session the week before, I had an exam that day so didn't really have time to fit in watching and reviewing a film. I was also rather busy with the rest of my excuses...

There was a choice of four films left for me to pick from to review today, and, thanks to python's random.randrange(), I got a film which I'm almost certain was the best out of four (without seeing the other three). It was without a doubt the best film I've watched today, and possibly ever. It's been a great day, an excellent celebration of the first month of Octarine Parrot.
The final film I'll be reviewing today is Fight Club. Those of you who've seen it will know I'm not meant to talk about it, but to hell with that! The film follows Jack, an incredibly clever insomniac who seeks help to relieve him of his pain. After seeking help from his doctor he's advised to go to a testicular cancer support group to experience "real pain" looks like. Not long after he becomes addicted to not just this support group but others too, as the allow him to relieve his pain. When a mysterious stranger known as Marla 'invades' his support groups he ends up leaving them and seeking solace in a group he forms with a stranger he met on a plane - They call it Fight Club.
