Shortland Street Serial Killer Round Up

So while I wait until Halo 3 comes out I kill that painful 7 - 730 pm spot with a lil bit of er.. Shortland Street.

And so who is the Killer?

Lets begin with who it is not.

Mark Weston: I have always hated his character. Such a pussy. It's not him cos he's left for Australia to hook up with Donna Heke cos she was pretty easy and is an easy Mark for him.

Marge: She's too old, couldn't beat down a Jay if she had a crowbar.

Carmen: Pushing up daisies.

Minnie: She's still pissed about that Rangi thing and is going all Carrie on them.

Who it could be?

Lionel: After disappearing in odd circumstances off a cliff he's come back to get revenge on anyone who ever went in the coffee shop.

Chris Warner: Left field but he hates Toni and therefore all woman except for that copper he's banging. He wants to bang Libby to but he's worried she'd break him in.

TK "Maoriora" Samuels: Jay Bee thinks he's hot so clearly he should die too.

Nick Harrison: Its always the accountant. Always follow the money!

Libby: That Clare was just gagging for a catfight. Meow! Hiss!

The Real Suspects:

Scotty: Scotty is darkish and mysterious. Like a Ninja. He has moves like one any way. That way he swooped in and scored Shanti was like he was David Beckham picking up a Spice girl was legendary. Or not.

Why he could be the killer - apparently hates tarts, never has an alibi, has the medical knowledge... but one would think he was already proficient in the task...so could it be..

Kerian: Typical Whinging pom. Ow my head hurts. Oh I can't remember that I pimp out hookers. Oh I have a fiery temper. How the fuck he got himself a libby and a Clare I'll never know.

Why he could be the killer - Clare did his nut in, if he was practicing medical procedures he would presumably get better at it like the show has suggested. Never has an alibi... lies like he has parliamentary priviledge.. and he was in the bar after jay left...

The Ugly Orderly Guy: He's too ugly to be the serial killer. They never are on tv. You know its true.

Which leaves us Joey.

Joey crimanally sang that air new zealand tv add song about being there or someshit. He was in that movie The Locals. He previous had a bit part on Shortland Street. So clearly he has a record of henious crimes under his belt. He likes to be proactive and take risks at work. He's learning new procedures. Clare used him. His mummy hit him with wire coathangers. His daddy read him Cinderalla every night till he was 12. He meets the criteria of serial killers being good looking. What's his alibi eh? For the last one he was with Kerian... so its a Scream ending - two killers!!!

In Conclusion, the Shortland Steet Serial Killer is:

Most likely: Joey
Too obvious: Kerian
Roughie: Chris Warner
Wish it was: Libby

Update: It was Joey.

World Cup Predictions....

ICE TV legend Nathan Rarere blogs his world cup predictions. I have some others:

David Kirk will be slightly miffed there is a new member of the All Black Captains who won the RWC Club.

John Hart will blather on about how playing rugby is easier in socialist champagne sucking France than in Nelson Mandela Fired up Seth Africka

Those whingeing Poms will finally shut the fuck up. Hell, they never even played us in the last tournament.

Stephan Larkarm will announce his intention to stick around until next one. And probably make the team.

There will be numerous references to tidley winks.

Steinlager sales will go up. As will hangover rates.

Laurie Mains will mutter something about Suzy, his favourite waitress.

Samoa will have one big game when they “threaten” but don’t actually.

Wearing “Wellington Black” in support will seem like a cool in-joke.

Casual Friday will see some Knob wearing his two sizes too large AB jersey. And being admired for it.

Colin Meads will be asked about the AB's performance and he will stand there in his Swan Dry with his morning’s cornflakes stuck to it and say “they need more steak and bacon bits in their diet. Not like my day when we ate a whole sheep before training."

Gears of War Review


Ah the sweet bliss of blogging with a diet coke in one hand and a belly full of sausage rolls. And of course, your company dear reader.

So like Gears of War for Xbox 360. I decided to play it on casual mode cos I just want a hit around before Halo 3. It's fairly easy but has good game play. It’s a straight shooter pretty much. Graphics are amazingly detailed but the world is a burnt gray - A complete contrast to most games so its quite novel. The players themselves are pretty cool with good interaction in the cut scenes and nods to past agendas, glories, loves and failures.

Music is good at heightening the action. There’s a quiet lil motif played throughout when you’re slowly making your way round which gives a real sense of danger but not symbolising a future danger if you know wot I mean gov (is that threnody?)

Apparently there are 5 acts and I did the first in like 2 hours of game play so its short and sweet on easy mode. Some pretty foul original beasts to bring down – some of them remind me of LOTR but not really IYKWIMG.

Played one match making game. What an overated piece of poohaa. Mummy do something it smells! This average Halo player got his ass handed to him. The game just doesn’t feel right. It's not free and easy. The whole chainsaw thing, totally overated. I’ll play a few more verus games but I sense I’ll do the campaign, get a few achievements and then go nuts on Halo 3.

Snipershots rule!

Like a Bat out of Hell you should watch a hoor movie a day

Its oddly pleasing to be on someone's blog roll, just a few down from Mr Bat himself, Jim Steinman.

I am the Master Chief

Weekend that was part Black Label Society

Me and the 3rd One hit the Johnny Walker till I was incapable of hitting a single note on guitar hero at 3am. On Easy mode.

Had the Usual Suspects (all of them) for a Pot Luck Dinner. Steinlager and Tiramisu don't go together so well but apart are equally tasty. We talked shit to the wee hours again. It was a starry stary night, Vincent.

Saw Eagle Vs Shark. Its quirky with some lovely moments. It is Napolean Dynamite for losers all over but what ever, its cheese and its free. The music is by the Phonenix Foundation for the whole film and then right at the end climax they switch to the Stone Roses' 'This is the One'. It was really bloody jarring. Horse. Damn.

Taught Chucky how to play one by U2 on the guitar. That's ironic, don't you think And then we played Halo 2 matchmaking. He's killer diller with the Shotty that lad. But then his wife said he had to come home.

Watched the Return of the Kind Special Extended Edition - cool scene with the Witch King or whatever he's called busting up Gandalf and the emissary at the gate being beheaded were choice as owh! The later creature reminded me of a cenobite from Hellraiser. Yes, Jesus, he wept.

Did the dishes.

Where are you? St Clares?

Did they just kill Chris?

Fuck they did.

And you thought I was a chardonnay man*

So I just drank Ngatarawa Stables dry. Amen.

*actually why would you? I ainta jaffa, nor a leechin bleachin socialist.

Here's the video for Hey There Deliliah




"Hey There Delilah" is the third single released from the rock band Plain White T's 2005 albumAll That We Needed. The song is about a long-distance relationship. In June 2007, over two years after the song's initial release, it became the band's first mainstream hit in the United States, eventually reaching the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 in July. From July 3, 2007through July 28, the song was the number one most played song on the radio, and the number one downloaded song on the U.S. iTunes Music Store. After a few days, the version of the song found on Every Second Counts became the number one most downloaded, but was eventually replaced by "See You Again" by Miley Cyrus.
After the song jumped from number 16 to number 6 on the chart it continued to climb one position every week (6-5-4-3-2-1), making it the first chart-topping hit to have this pattern on the Hot 100 in 21 years. It also reached number two in the UK and number three in Australia.
The song ended 2007 as the year's 14th biggest-selling single in the UK.
Although "Hey There Delilah" is from the Plain White T's third album, All That We Needed, since the single's popularity new versions of the intervening fourth album, Every Second Counts, have "Hey There Delilah" added as a bonus track with a string section augmenting the original recording.[



W/E/DAT/WUZ


Alana Estate Chardonnay and other assorted guests came to stay. Not for long, mind you.

Watched India Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark. Still brilliant after all these years. After stars wars et all this is probably the movie I seen more times than most. Snakes, I hate snakes! Years ago the first movie we ever got for the brand new video was this movie - nice one John.

Played netball - we won - with five players - got some good passing going on.

Sunday was for washing and doing the hoovering. Read some Alvin Toffler. Not.

Went to the markets. Found the lil piggy who went all the way there.

Still making my way through the second season of battlestar galactica - it's pretty good but you knew that didn't you, you big trekkie fan you.

Played with my Optimus Prime. The head turn over thingy is rooted. Dammit.

Wrote this blog. Listened to some ACDC. Woo.

Last Night's Roast

So like I was walking passed the bottle store about 11 am and 4 bros in a reasonable condition car turned up looking for some piss and were disappointed to find it shut.

They looked at me and the guy in the back pops his head out the window.

"Hey, you wanna buy a kilo?"

I looked straight at him

"Na mate, I just had breakfast"

He looked kinda disppointed and they drove off.

Untitled

It starts with awe
You’ve been there, downed it all
Cuffed, chained and collared
Drunk, on your hands and knees
Begged, rolled over and crawled
For a dollar, caught the groupie blues

It continues with an open sore
For love (sic) that was spurned
Sucking bubbles on a bent straw
The moonies ask you to say hello to the baby jesus
Cos that’s the only way you can please us

It ends with a broken paw
You thought love was a many splendored thing
Oh, you pretty thing
Your rock god failed you
An empty concert hall
Like your name, the lyrics mean nothing

Is there nothing left now that you’ve got mono from Bono?

Maybethemefirstandthegimmegimmiesshoulddoit

IMJUSTASYIN.

Mr. President, you're going to let that lousy commie punk vomit all over us like this?

Not PC, lays it down like it is.

“Socialism is just Communism without the courage of its convictions.”

The end.

Weekend that wuz pt: can you even keep up wit ma mad skillz?

Weekend dart wasz

Fri: My friends Mr Stein and Mr Lager visited after work. Dinz masala. Watched Rocky.
Sat: E's 33rd. A good time was held by all.
Sun: Po Boy (Prawn) at SMK wit usual suspectz.

E.T., I love you

So like Jay Bee and Jimmy Jangles finally watched E.T. again both like 20 something years after we first saw it.

First time round I had no idea we where going to the movies. La Mere took me and the Red Roster... I think Super Simon was Chez les Grand parents... anyway State theatre Napier...

The opening scene I truly recall scaring the beetle juice out of me. When they traded the base ball and later on the candy jeez that had me. But the ending!!

This time round I kept thinking M Knight Shayamalannishdude would have done it so better. Except he cannot do heart as good as Speilberg can on half a heart on a half hearted day. I had forgetten the link between ET and Eliot so when they started mimicking each other it all came back. It's like Brody and his kid in Jaws. Without the Jesus complex. I'm just sayin.

So it was hilhairyous when ET got drunk on one can. It reminded me of a very good friend and a certain rugby world cup finalchex miz when I was like 17..

So the...so i interrupted this post by watching Rocky. What can say ? Yo Adrian? I aint kidding I'm tired. No fooling round. shesseh. You aint doin me no favours.

E.T. It has heart. Bruckhemlichmanoeverish dude and his stupid pirate depp aint got nuthin on the Italin Stallion. And Joey from Friends for that matter.

Ouch.

Come.

Stay.

Ouch.

Poohz

So like hands up who hates that add with that lil kid who is taking a dumb and he's all like 'its pooh and stinky' and calls his mum for help?! I just wanna flush that turd down the porcelian god.

Chill Winstarrrrrnnn
