Final Post of the Year

And the Decade too. Lots to do next year and as some of you know, plans in motion. Even if these do not come to fruition, the prospects from the process I am to undertake, are limitless.

Thanks to everyone who has backed the blog and I hope you'll come back in 2011.

Still need a more up to date photo...

Haircut 100 (Fanta-stic day)

As I type this I wait in the Barber of The Oval, for the last cut of the year. Does this read like a tweet? If so let me know, as I'm thinking of making 2011 a year of Twitting. I suppose after all the idiocy of 2010 it cannot hurt...

Went to Tron again yesterday. I think I came to the conclusion it must be a work of fiction, but not for the reasons most of you are thinking. That is of course if there is anyone out there reading this. I might be passing comment on banality but boil it down, what isn't?

For those still in the Game, you can now put in your requests for my picture of the year. I'm up for more Rock Lobstar but I suspect there's more than B-52 fans out there reading this (at least I hope so...)

Thoughts of Tron: Legacy

Last night, I got in.

Having listened to the Soundtrack for over a week I was sort of prepared for what I got. And I wasn't. You have got to see this movie in the biggest 3D screen you can. But for all it's workings and beauty (for it is a thing of Beauty, there is no doubt) Ton: Legacy left me in a very vunerable place, as I veered dangerously home, in the snow.

For those who have followed in the past, you will no doubt know of the fabled return journies home from London. Well, this one took me as far as New Cross, where I thankfully met a night bus home. Regrettably, having managed to stay warm for the majority of the trip once leaving the night bus I was bitterly cold. I'm running on three hours sleep now.

My thanks go out to the two others who saw Tron with me, thanks for backing me up on this one. Now, with less than a week to Christmas, all the presents bought and imagry of the Grid swirling in my mind, I wonder what innovations I might see, whether Immersion is a possibility. Should I go to see Tron again (well, that's a yes).

So to sign off in some weird fashion this time around, I'm a User, and Immersion is my idea.

End of Line.(for now)

A Quiet Beer...

Alright then... So I get talked out of going to the All Bar One as my friend thinks it's good idea to try this other place out... What he don't know is it's Karaoke nite. Next time we go to my first choice my friend!

This is Martin Balm, reporting live from a pub off the Old Vic, waiting for his friends to show up for Tron (next posting: Tron thoughts)
