All The Fun Of The Fair

OK, so yesterday (Monday) evening, I went to a funfair with a few friends. I was expecting a really crappy affair, like the ones I'm used to back home in Melksham, but I was pleasantly surprised. This one had some half-decent rides, and was fairly reasonably priced. I guess it was both "fun" and "fair." I'd love to claim credit for that hilarious joke, but it was my mate Chris'. The rides were pretty good, like I said, especially this twirly upside-down one. You're strapped into a seat on the edge of a circle, looking towards the centre, then the whole circle starts spinning. That's not too bad, just a bit of G-force pressing you against the back of the seat. Then it starts to tip and go upside down and all over the place, all the time spinning. I couldn't stop manically laughing all the way through, it was wicked fun. The next ride wasn't quite as good, but it made you feel really hungover because it spun you whilst bouncing you quite harshly. I had a bitch of a headache after that, hangover-esque, plus my stomach didn't feel 100% settled. All good fun though.

What made that night better was that when we got back to the halls we watched Godfather Part II. I'd seen the first one before Christmas, but the second one is even better. It was the only sequel ever to win a Best Picture Oscar, and it blatantly deserved it. Beautifully shot, incredibly acted, and with some great plotlines. The switching between Michael Corleone in 1958 to Vito Corleone in 1917 was done fantastically well, and blended perfectly. I'm going to use the old football journalism cliche now and say that there are simply not enough superlatives to describe this film.

Today (Tuesday) was a much more boring day. A long session on Champ, which I'm incredibly addicted to, followed by a bit of watching The Day Today on video. The Day Today was Chris Morris' first TV programme, and also featured Steve Coogan's first appearance as Alan Partridge. It's a genius bit of satirical comedy, and is quite surreal in parts. I had never heard of Chris Morris before coming to uni, but now I love all of the stuff he has done. Brass Eye is probably the funniest, especially the "Cake" episode, whereas Jam is the most disturbingly dark programme he has done. All works of incredible genius though.
