1. The Holiday

In the beginning, I was hesitant to watch this movie at all. I’m really glad I did though because I thought it was the cutest romantic comedy ever! Amanda and Iris find themselves facing guy problems. Both of them go on a home exchange website and decide to switch homes for the holiday. While Iris moves into Amanda’s house in California, Amanda flies to England to stay at Iris’ cozy countryside snow laden home. Although their initial goal is to get as far away from their troubled love lives, love proves to be less elusive than they had thought. Both Amanda and Iris mend their hearts with their newfound romance.

2. The Pursuit of Happyness

In this movie, inspired by a true story, Will Smith portrays a salesman named Chris Gardner. He struggles to make ends meet for his family. When he decides to pursue his dream of becoming a stockbroker, his wife leaves him. Though Gardner and his five year old son endure many hardships, he clings on to the glimmer of hope that one day, they will live a better life. This movie is truly inspirational and moving.

Christian Music Rock Show

To start off, I’m going to say, having been to a show myself, this is the kind of experience everyone could enjoy. There is a good variety of local and distant bands, as well as a variety of music. Punk, pop-punk, hardcore, christian contemporary, and acoustic are just some of the genres you might find at Gethsemane Christan Shows.

Other than music, there are a few other things one could enjoy at a Gethsemane Christian Show. Food and drinks are sold to help support everything required to put a show together and the future shows to come. Dramatic plays done by some of the local youth are captivating enough to keep the attention of nearly anyone. Bands often sell merchandise and cds.

Overall, the Gethsemane Christian Shows are a good experience for people of all ages. Entrance prices vary, but are quite affordable for anyone. For more information on the next show, requests to play the show, or to find a way you can help, email Jenna at Gethsemaneshows@yahoo.com or at http://www.myspace.com/gethsemaneshows

Peep Show Series 6 on Channel 4: First Episode of the Long Running POV Sitcom

“No, I’ve started being a boss. What about my Danish sofa and my new keyboard?” says Mark (David Mitchell) after learning that he’s just lost his job at JLB in the first 10 minutes of the new series of Channel 4’s peerless award-winning comedy of errors. It’s been six years since Peep Show hit the screens and if this opener is anything to go by there’s no sign of it losing any momentum as it remains as pant-wettingly funny as ever. Suddenly staying on a Friday doesn’t seem so bad after all.

Peep Show Series 6

After the scene where all the staff, including Jeremy (Robert Webb) who has only been at the company for three hours yet pretends to be deeply affected, are told by Johnson (Paterson Joseph) of the office closure Mark sets up a JLB survivors group and performs a skit where he dresses up as the German boss of the company, complete with a permanent marker Hitler moustache, only for said boss to turn up and offer Mark a tidy redundancy package if he calls off the protest.

It’s hard not to laugh as his initial giddy thoughts of “I’ve single handily re-launched the satire boom” suddenly becomes the pop-culture referencing awareness of: “I’m Russell Brand and Steffan is probably Andrew Sachs”. There’s also something pleasantly schoolboy about seeing David Mitchell running around with a Hitler moustache for half of the episode.

Super Hans (Matt King), last seen joining a Scientology-like cult and destroying Mark’s precious new HD ready television set, is back to his typical useless druggie self and offers the boys a bit of cash-in-hand work as “men with ven”. There were better moments of course but some of the funnier quotable lines contain language unsuitable for a family website such as this one. …
