  5. buying a interstate car

    Just did this last month. Go in for a tier 2 inspection, which involves checking the VIN number. If they don't like the look of your car, they'll send you to get a tier 3. Was like $50, then you just sign over the rego papers as normal. Surprised how easy it was.

    Finally back into watching movies. For one reason or another, been super busy the last few months. Got a big list to get through. Fatso https://en.wikipedia...atso_(2008_film) A Norwegian film following a socially awkward, porn-addicted virgin, Rino. He's secluded, yet in his comfort zone, living rent free in his parent's second house, with no responsibilities or job. He basically stays at home all day, watching porn, only to catch up with a friend; another social outcast with inflated self confidence, pretending to be god's gift to women. A spanner is thrown into the works when Rino's parents decide to rent out the house to pay the bills. A somewhat innocent, free-spirited girl moves in, seemingly looking past Rino's shortfalls and genuinely becomes his friend. Like most socially awkward people, they are their own worst enemy, over complicating situations in their head, and self sabotaging relationships. Overall, the story moves along at quite a good pace, getting to interesting confrontations without much filler. However the ending was quite odd, where you don't know what's real, but not in a good way. Possibly worth the watch if you see it playing, but I wouldn't go out looking for it. Generation Iron https://en.wikipedia...Generation_Iron A documentary you'd think I would've seen when it came out, but I'm so saturated with gym and fitness stuff, that I let it slip. It was probably more interesting watching it a few years on, seeing some of the politics play out. This follows the 2013 Olympia, where reigning champ Phil Heath will defend his title against others pros hungry for the title, including the most promising prospect Kai Greene. They actually build up the rivalry quite a lot in this, but I suspect it's all manufactured to sell tickets. I was surprised this documentary didn't really go in depth with the bodybuilders' training or diet. I guess this only appeals to the hardcore followers, and focusing more on the drama and grandeur of the event potentially got more people to watch this. As a fan of these guys, a lot of what you see is not new and is pretty much what you'd expect. A follow up doc would be interesting as there has been a lot more drama and politics in the bodybuilding scene since this was filmed. Worth the watch if you're someone into fitness or bodybuilding. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children https://en.wikipedia..._Children_(film) The latest Tim Burton movie, this time about children with super powers who can time travel. Yes, a premise so outlandish that I went in expecting very little. In think because of this, I found the movie average instead of terrible. There is nothing wrong with this movie, I'm just not a fan of fantasy with no remote basis in reality. The story is about Jake, who has heard crazy stories from his grandfather as a child, about a remote English island with fantasy creatures. After the grandfather's death, Jake's parents feel it's best to take him to this island to help him find closure. However he soon finds that these stories were actually real. If you're a fan of Harry Potter and similar "young adult" films, this will be for you.
  9. still lifting bruhhh?

    I quite run down on my story. Started like everyone else; started lifting to get "in shape" so girls would like me. Went in circles for about 3 years and didn't really make progress. Got a bit stronger, but didn't look much different. Didn't take diet serious at all. Finally pushed myself out of my comfort zone and cleaned up my diet. Ate things I didn't want to and stopped eating things I did want to. This forced/motivated me to train properly as well so I wasn't wasting my time. Got to a point where I was happy with how I looked, and felt fit and healthy. Well fitter and healthier than when I was lazy. However I was too focused on the weights and number. Took a while, but finally realised fitness is more than just spending an hour a day in a gym, and then sitting down all day in an office. Starting hiking, walking when possible, riding a bike for transport. Overall I feel much more balanced in terms of general fitness. I can hike up a mountain with a weighted vest, rep out chin ups, deadlift 2.5x body weight and go for a 2 hour ride without a problem. So I thought what next. The hell with it, I'll give competing a go. May as well put all the training to use. I'm the guy with no hair (on my head). It was gruelling and something I don't think I'll do again. But I can now tick it off.
  10. still lifting bruhhh?

    As a rough guide, I can do 100kg x5 on a good day, but can bust out 30kg DBs x10 quite easily. If you can do 10 reps, you should be able to do 1 rep of 100kg. It's a different feel though. But it's like anything, you will only get good at it if you train for it.

    Warm Bodies 31/10/2016 9:30pm 7flix Adelaide Movie https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warm_Bodies_(film) After a highly unusual zombie saves a still-living girl from an attack, the two form a relationship that sets in motion events that might transform the entire lifeless world.

    The Bad News Bears https://en.wikipedia..._Bad_News_Bears A movie that I'd heard was a great classic, but damn, the remake dominates free-to-air screen time. After watching it, I can sort of understand why. This has got to be one of the most politically incorrect movies I've seen in a long time. An alcoholic driving around at least 8 primary school aged children in an open top convertible with no seat belts and possibly drunk, blatant racism towards children who don't speak English as a first language, emotionally blackmailing an 11 year old girl and then engaging in banter towards her sex life, and many more. The general premise is that an out of work baseball coach, who still can't let go of his professional past is hired to lead a team of misfits. Everybody, including the children are under no illusions that they suck, and they're only there for the experience. However they start to work together and climb the ranks. Including the examples listed, this movie certainly has charm, in terms of the actual story and nostalgia, back when things were simpler (people not held accountable). I wouldn't rush out to see it, but it's an enjoyable watch if you like these classic sporting/coming-of-age movies. Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping https://en.wikipedia..._Never_Stopping I was really looking forward to seeing this in the cinemas, as comedies are a genre enhanced by watching it with a crowd. But like many other movies this year, Australia was screwed and it didn't get a release here. This is a parody of the Justin Bieber movie, written and staring the Lonely Island crew. Generally a fan of mockumentaries, I really enjoyed this. I'm sure a lot of jokes went over my head as I never saw the Justin Bieber movie, and I got the feeling a lot of the jokes were mocking certain scenes, but the jokes and gags are pretty rapid fire. They don't all land, but you can forgive it, as the ones that do are great. There are endless cameos in this and the surprisingly the production value is very high, probably higher than most deal docs. It's really a shame that this didn't get much of a release, even inside the US, as critics loved this as well. If you hadn't heard of this, definitely put it on your list. Fright Night https://en.wikipedia...ki/Fright_Night A cult horror film that I was aware of, but never actually knew what it was about. Disappointingly, it's a high school vampire film, meaning it's not completely 80s' camp, nor or a true horror film. Basically it's the old premise of a stranger/vampire moves in next door, but being a pimply-faced high school kid, no one believes you; so it's up to the unlikely hero to save the town. For the age of the movie, there were a few cool special effects, but I think most people have seen it all before and the story was very predictable. Not really a movie worth seeing.
