After the St. Patrick’s holiday celebrations have passed, what better way is there to recover than with an episode of DOTM?

dun, dun-en-un, dun, dun, dun, dun, dun…… Formula 1 is back fuckers!!!!

by on Mar.29, 2009, under Crew Logs

So my ‘dun’ rhyme might not be an accurate rendition of the ultra cool theme music, and by referring to my friends and readers as ‘fuckers’ might not be a good way to expand my readership, but ah hell fuck it, the sport of kings has returned, dam, ass, hell, fast-as-fuck KINGS!!!!

Surprising start as the Braun GP team pick up a 1-2 and somehow Hamilton ends up in fucking third. Plus both anal rape red Ferraris exit the race with no points, not a bad race. The old, awesome, theme music from my childhood is back; and no commercial breaks!!!

Now, time for the rant! The new play-by-play guy has about as much charisma as a Joseph Fritzel/John Major transporter accident. He sucked all the fun and excitement out of the fastest sports on the planet with such ease, it was almost as if he was employed to make it lame, why!?!

Alas I have done other things this weekend too, hold your horses, don’t get too excited; it wasn’t anything overly cool or anything. Basically I bought a bunch of DVD’s and watched them. No overly stupid reviews here ppl. If I wanted to direct you to some pretentious asshole, acting like they knew anything about film, trying their best to sound smart when their obvious idiocy is apparent to anyone that has read more than two lines of their work; well ladies and gents I would direct you to……. The Sun film review page!!! I know, I know, I went left when you thought I was going to go right; I’m tricky like that.

Fine, fine, there is one other place you can go where someone completely bumble fucks their way around a review like multiple amputee trying to navigate/roll around a maze made entirely out of broken glass… but I don’t hate anyone enough to make them suffer it.

On that note one, here’s couple of my notoriously short film reviews:

Zach and Miri make a porno: Awesome!!!
Quantum of Solace: No Casino Royale, not shit though.
Fantastic Four – Rise of the Silver Surfer: All shit bar the Surfer, and anyone that has read my Galactis = Giant Cloud rant knows how I feel about that so why repeat myself.
Mama Mia: Didn’t watch it, but the idiot, Down’s Syndrome like smile on the face of my Mum should say it all. Woman and gay men will enjoy it.

Last Note, Northern Ireland 3 Poland 2. What a fucking result.

On that note, catch ya laters and remember, knowing is half the battle, G.I. Joe!!!!!
