All About Le-Beave
Hello and welcome to my Blog!
Unfortunately I have wirtten my final Blog, but please feel free to look it over and if you like, look at it's 77 predecessors too. Thanks for viewing my blog!
Well it's been about 3 or 4 weeks since my last blog and I figured that my life here is kind of dying slowly. So, I thought I would just give you an update or two into things in my life, in what will be one of my last blogs here.
I guess I started my blogs here not realising what it would turn into. I started off with my first blog back in September 2005 with a kind of rant about San Andreas. About how angry the game made me plus a mega-rant about the final mission. I then started blogging every time I levelled up here on Gamespot and my blogs kind of developed more and more into my personal life. And looking back on them, I've noticed a vast improvement in my grammar, typing speed, and that I've made some great friends here on Gamespot.
I suppose the deeper I went with my blogs into my personal life the harder it is to take steps backwards away from it and so I think with this blog I will give you my last few weeks and what I hope to come in my life.
Well my last blog was about The Dark Knight which has quickly become one of my favourite movies and has me almost infatuated with Heath Ledger... Who now ranks highly with my favourite actors... Christian Bale, Ben Affleck, Mark Wahlberg, Clive Owen, Gary Oldman, Jean Reno, and the list could go on and on. So, I have now seen The Dark Knight 5 times; once more and I match my personal best of Small Soldiers in the cinema when I was younger.
The job at the local Cinema is going well, its long hours and pay isn't pretty but getting a payday every fortnight is nice and you can't really argue with free films!
Oh and I almost forgot, yesterday our A Level results were out. Considered I could have tried harder if I were aiming for going to University or something, I am quite pleased with my 3 passes But as I said, right now, I'm not interested in going to Uni, when you start earning money Full Time, it's tough to go back to learning and earning less. With my first paycheck I thought I'd treat myself so I bought a limited edition hand-painted 10" Joker figurine... With only 6000 being made and officially licensed this is surely an investment at £80 too. So that was a sort of congratulations to myself, not many people nowadays apply for their first ever job, and get a first ever interview and get the job! I have since bought a new cell phone/mobile phone with my paychecks and about 40 new DVDs in the space of a month
In future, I intend to rent a place with my best friend and just have a lot of studentesque fun. Obviously right now I am happy with the money I am earning considered the type of work I do, but will certainly try to further myself into something more suited for my abilities. I don't know what I will be doing with my life as nobody can predict the future, which is scary, but I gotta hope for the best I suppose.
So, I suppose this is goodbye.
It has been a rollercoaster ride over the past 3 years or so but overall it's been a nice outlet for me to spend some free time, chat about some of my favourite things in life.. Games all over the site, films at The DVD Collectors Union, and all things British in the UK Discussion
I would like to thank everyone who ever took an interest in my blogs and life, and in some cases for your kind and inspiring words. Thanks to you all and I wish you all the best in whatever you do in your lives.
P.S: Keep on gamin' dudes & dudettes!
Working in a Cinema has it's benefits! I got to see this at a Press Screening TWO DAYS before the Premiere Release!!! So without further ado... My Spolier-Free Review:
Absolutely magnificent. To start with, Heath Ledger has totally eclipsed Jack Nicholson as The Joker - in what has to be his best performance of his short life. He is possibly the best actor around at 'becoming the character' and I think thats clearly shown in his rebel-austrian kid in 10 Things I Hate About You, Cowboy-yank in Brokeback Mountain and now terrifying mastermind criminal The Joker in The Dark Knight. If there isn't an Oscar in the cards for him then the planet simply cannot recognise real talent. But back to the movie itself... Action sequences - While it's intense with powerful soundtrack to pump the blood to your heart faster and faster the actual hand to hand combat is a little slow and can be seen how 'rehearsed' it must have been. But the Special Effects are faultless you really couldn't tell CGI from Real Life. The characters - all brilliant including Aaron Eckhart whom I am not such a fan of bringing an arsenal of acting abilities to the film. Maggie Gyllenhall who replaces Katie Holmes is her usual dull and boring talentless self but all that is really just splitting hairs. The Joker is possibly the best villain in all of the Batman movies and certainly the best of the century so far. Christian Bale, as per usual, puts in a riveting performance and is accompanied by Michael Caine as Alfred with some quirky comments and heart-felt speeches to Mr Wayne. Now this is two and a half hours long so it's not short of action, but what really makes it is the dialogue too. Most notably in the speeches and comments of The Joker who brings some very funny moments to the screen too, after all.... Why So Serious?!?!?!
Well, as you know by now, I sat my A Level exams and left school in search of bettering myself, goals were based around Job, Car, House, Family etc. I have been applying online for a few things just sending CV's to places like BLOCKBUSTER Cineowlrs etc. Well Thursday I took steps a bit further, I went down the Job Centre. I had arranged a meeting to see if I was entitled to Job Seekers Allowance - of course how else am i supposed to live if i have no income and no job etc. and then a woman tried setting up steps to focus me on career goals etc. Her main questions were obviously based on what I want to do with my life. After some deliberation I reeled off a few I would like to do: Photographer, Media based work eg BBC/Cinema, Estate Agents etc. Ultimately she shot me down saying how the UK have like more people with Photography degrees etc than the rest of Europe so I can't do it, and the same with the Media, she said theres too many people doing Media Studies courses which essentially are now meaningless. So she focused on the Estate Agency thing. Anyway, it went well I think.
Then later in the evening of Thursday, I had a few mates round and hosted a 'Games Night'. I hooked up a friends 360 in my living room and left my PS3 in my bedroom so we could alternate and not all crowd in one room. I have to say it was a success, we had a few gatecrashers, but really they livened up the gig And cleaning up the next day i was suprised at how much alcohol or more importantly, Pizza we had consumed. And I was amazed to see a Semi drunk self teamed up with a friend who has no consoles at all beat one guy (who is genuinely better than me at FIFA.. i can beat him 1 in 3 times really, and his partner, they both fell to the greatness of myself and my partner pulling off an amazing 3-1 win and i didnt realise i was being recorded so people now have me screaming obscenities and somewhat offensive material on their mobile/cell phones.
Anyway, it was a success, and then Friday morning at about 11am, after most of us gained consciousness (I was already awake as I just pulled an all-nighter), the telephone rang. "Hello, may I please speak to Mr Steve Matthews" to which I replied "Yes, this is he". "Sorry to call at such short notice, but we received your CV online, and we were wondering if you would be available for a job interview with us at 7pm tonight at Cineworld." I was gobsmacked, I really did not expect this at all. So, the day went on and my nerves got the better of me - This was my first ever job interview. I struggled with one or two questions and had to have a glass of water, but the questions I was ok with I would answer genuinely, honestly and the best I could. My blogs don't really reflect that, but I am actually quite a well-spoken person. So, I thought it went quite well.
When I returned home I hung out with friends for a bit more with even more pizza and drinks and sat to watch a film called Farce of the Penguins with voice-overs from lots of B Listers and narrated by the legendary Samuel L Jackson. Well, half way through this film, at approximately 10.10pm, I received another phone call. "Hello, is this Steve Matthews?" It is indeed "This is cineworld calling and if you are interested we would like to offer you a position with our company" I was just so shocked, at how fast this was all happening, I'd never had an interview before, and 2 hours later I had the job! I will be starting Sunday (tommorrow) for my training days so I'll see how that goes.
So, thank you for reading, I just thought I would keep you all up to date with my life's events, and this is a major step forward for me and I think it will be nice with coleagues and earning myself some money too
Thank you for reading
