    I had it on from the beginning of the prelims at 6pm so I was burnt out by the time the main championship matches came on, I watched some of the Aldo one where the ref needs to be fired on the spot. The women's matches on the main card were both really good. I see there's a welsh dude on the prelim tomorrow so I'll stick that on for sure.

    I don't know what the deal was with the Aldo fight. Leon Roberts is a great referee normally so fuck knows what happened there.

    Jack Shore tomorrow I think. He's good. It's only his second UFC fight but he was brilliant in his first one in September and was great when he fought in Cage Warriors.

    That's in my next batch of shows to get through once I clear some current ones out, he soured me with the Chris Brown thing a bit but heard good things about the show.

    UFC Fight Island is on Saturday, so I've reserved some beers and low expectations for that.

    Fight Island was great!


    Watched all of Halt and Catch Fire recently. Loved it.

    I watched this video on the weekend:

    And promptly used it as an excuse to watch some things from his list I hadn't seen. So that was The Vanishing (the 1988 original, I have the 93 remake too but it sounds thoroughly shite even though it was done by the same director) and Audition which I've been meaning to watch for close to 20 years. I also mixed that up with Visitor Q with regards to what I thought might be a spoiler, but nope. Weird film, typical Miike. Thought both were **** efforts, didn't find either scary though but that's not a surprise. 

    Happy to see The Witch on the video. I love/hate that film. Love it for how good it is, hate it for how stressful I find watching it. And that fucking goat.

    I need to rewatch Jaws. It's the favourite film of a lot of my friends. I remember it being good, but not top 5 good. I'll see if it's on Netflix

    It was on there fairly recently. 


    A top 5 would be difficult for me but I think maybe


    1. Jaws. I can't even explain why I love it si much. I just do.

    2. Full Metal Jacket (I only watched this properly fairly recently and I loved it)

    3. Jurassic Park (nostalgia playing a big part here)

    4. Hunt for the Wilderpeople

    5. Pan's Labyrinth


    You could probably stick something like Terminator 2 in there somewhere because I will happily watch it over and over and not get sick of it. My tastes aren't particularly highbrow.

  5. I really enjoyed Estuary Blacks album that they put out last year. That's probably the newest thing I've listened to.



    But I will check these out because I'm listening to the same things over and over at the moment.

    Better Call Saul is the best thing around atm. This season especially is better than Breaking Bad even. Bob Odenkirk is absolutely killing it. He's phenomenal.

    It's so good. I've loved it from the start but the last two seasons have been outstanding. 


    An entire series of Silicon Valley passed me by without me realising so we are watching that.

  7. Mine consist of:

    Seeing family and pals. Hopefully trying to arrange something will be easier than it has been in the past. At least until the novelty wears off. 

    Going to the beach, up a mountain or a walk anywhere that is further than a mile from my house.

    Training again. I miss it. Not to the extent where I am doing solo drills at home but it's a fun outlet for me and I had planned on competing more this year. Given how close contact a sport it is that's going to be a while off I think. 

  8. Not seeing my parents or nan for 3 weeks now. Not so bad with my parents because I can video chat with them but my nan doesn't understand all that. She lives alone but I've been going there once a week, virtually every week since I was 14. Ringing her every day and she seems okay, it's just hard and even though it's the right thing to do, it's difficult not to feel guilty. 

    I know other people are in the same boat. But today it's bothered me a lot.
