I should apologise for not writing sooner, but thats not my style, so I wont. http://www.alteye.co.za/articles/leader-of-the-free-worlds-website-of-the-week Neil Gaiman Theres something cathartically profound in the absolute desecration of ones physical body and surroundings in order to feed the mental hunger to complete a superior book. Authors experience it all through the birthing process, the missed meals and showers culminating in a truly horrific picture of a human being. http://www.alteye.co.za/articles/neil-gaiman Neverwhere Neverwhere is a general must read, yet it is even more prominently so if you have ever lived in or visited London . The story subverts the dreary grey and green that is London into the darkest shade of black and bloody splattered red that is Gaimans underworld. http://www.alteye.co.za/articles/neverwhere The Sandman Series The Sandman was an industry redefining graphic novel series, created in 89 it ran through the 90s -era of grunge, cybersex and Jay and Silent Bob. http://www.alteye.co.za/articles/the-sandman-series The Wolves in the Walls I know most of our readers will have absolutely no intention of browsing the kiddies picture book shelves at their closest Exclusive Books; you would, however, be surprised at the macabre and depraved things children find amusing. I would think Roald Dahl would be the point and case. http://www.alteye.co.za/articles/the-wolves-in-the-walls A Very Long Engagement I should have known by the title that this would be a long movie. Sometimes that most obvious things are right in front of your face but choose to ignore them because you so badly want to like a movie. A Very Long Engagement is not a bad movie, its just that its too long...waaaay too long. http://www.alteye.co.za/articles/a-very-long-engagement The Sea Inside It must be really difficult to make a movie about euthanasia without making it really depressing. Before watching this movie I read reviews that said it was an uplifting movie, Im not sure that I agree. http://www.alteye.co.za/articles/the-sea-inside PI Let me start off stating that I admire Darren Aranofskys work. I think he is one of the best directors working today. The problem is that he has only made two movies so far and must still prove his longevity. His track record is admirable and the quality of his movies increase each time. Pi was is first major feature and is an astounding piece of work, though not perfect. http://www.alteye.co.za/articles/pi MITSOO - WHO?

You may ask how I find the time to build an ppreciation for the ininnet, with my busy schedule, fighting trrrrism and dodging criticism.

On closer inspection you realise this meaty object is sporting a fingernail. How bout munching on some spectacularly fried chicken nuggets and discovering a nugget that looks suspiciously similar to a nugetised chicken head. http://www.alteye.co.za/articles/urban-food Superheroes can suck my cock! When will the madness stop?! I thought that Catwoman would have made the rest of Hollywood a little bit more cautious when it comes to superhero movies. It seems that every week there is a new superhero movie showing. Soon there will be no more good superheroes left and will get the lesser known heroes like Cattleman and Cleaning Lady! Oh the pain... http://www.alteye.co.za/articles/superheroes-can-suck-my-cock BLOOD MOON: The Wedding of Kurt and Maree August celebrated the marriage of two of Cape Town Alternative scenes most charming creatures and proud supporters, Kurt and Maree, with an eccentric wedding at Oude Molen Village. Fair enough; there were rings, an alter, and an isle or sorts. But throw in some leather. Slit and drip in an ounce of metal. Cast a little spell. And you have Blood Moon: spelt in a similar vein to Shock Therapy, but less of a theme party - and more of a dark affair. http://www.alteye.co.za/articles/blood-moon-the-wedding-of-kurt-and-maree Andy - a breath of fresh air People can say what they like, but the renaissance of Cape Town s alternative music scene would not have been possible without one bald headed, rug-sack bearing freak in particular: Andy Hawes of Parow.

Maybe I fell asleep or maybe Im just not intellectual enough (note my sarcasm) but there just doesnt seem to be much to this movie.
