2012: Where have I been?

Hello everyone, sorry for the lack of posts in the past year, but with work and other stuff haven’t had as much chance to do a lot on here.  As you will have noticed I have put up links for the Podcast I do with my friend Chris. The name has evolved since the first few and is now called Thursday Oddcast and we are now up to 39 Episodes!.  At present we haven’t got a website up and running though that will be the resolution for the New Year, and hopefully we can get it onto itunes, which is the main aim, so we can be trolled by the world.  The web address for the facebook page is

In the new year am looking at putting a film podcast together as that is the one topic I could talk about for ages, shall keep you posted.

Well have a great 2013

Sorry I’ve been a bit lazy of late with this blog, because of two reasons. 1. I have been having a few problems with this software, deleting my posts instead of saving them, which as you can imagine is a bit annoying. 2. Three small words: Gears Of War. For those of you who don’t know this is the new Xbox 360 game which is just phenomenal. This is easily the best looking game I have ever seen and I haven’t even got a HD tv! It also plays amazingly useing a hiding manouevre to get you through the levels of baddies of various sizes. You may have seen the advert on the  TV lately, well thats really what the game looks like. Obviously like other Xbox 360 game syou can play it online and this is also great fun in the warzone mode. For those who have xbox live my Gamertag is Stuntgoat, send me an invite! If you have an xbox you must have this game, if you don’t have one, buy one to play this game!

So what do i like?

To get to know my tastes in film and music I thought I would share with you my top 10 favourite Movies and Bands/Artists.

Top 10 Movies

1. Jaws. Just the prefect film for me, great story, great action, brilliant cast, I don’t care what people think about the shark, still looks scary. Only regret is I’ve never got to see it on the big screen.

2.Star Wars. Or Episode IV, if you want to be nerdy!  Just a great film I could watch over and over. I’ll even come out and admit it, i thought the prequels weren’t that bad!

3.Raiders Of The Lost Ark. Simply a classic. A great old fashioned adventure romp. Hope the intended fourth part lives up to the others.

4.The Blues Brothers. I have my dad to thank for this, he taped it one night just cause of the music acts on it, didn’t even know what it was about. Great music and a very silly tone, with one of the best car chases ever.

5.Almost Famous. Probably the last time I went to the cinema and saw a film that i thoroughly enjoyed from start to finish, one of those films you don’t want to end. The dvd extended cut was even better. If you love music i can highly recommend this film.

6.Fight Club. David Fincher’s masterpiece that just gets better the more you watch it, first time I saw it i told all my mates to go watch it. Who then came back and told me it was shit! No accounting for taste!

7.Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy. One of the silliest films you will probably ever see but thats what i love about it. Got cruelly ignored when it came out due to dodgeball, but an infintely more funny film, Brick Tamland is one of the funniest characters ever, I Love Lamp!

8.Die Hard. Probably one of the best action films ever. A film that turned the genre on it’s head, with numerous imitations of the normal guy in over his head saving the day.

9.X-Men. I don’t know what it is about comic book movies that I love so much, i’ve never read a comic book in my life but I just love the movies based on them. Spidey, The Hulk, i even thought Daredevil wasn’t bad. The star of this film is definetely Wolverine and I look forward to part 3 and then the Wolverine spinoff.

10.Superman:The Movie. Finally and no way last the ultimate comic book film. This film will always hold a special place for me as it was the first film I ever saw at the cinema and I can still remember the cheer when the man of steel finally appears on screen!  Cannot wait to see Superman Returns.

Top 10 Bands/ Artists

2.Ben Folds/Five

3.The Divine Comedy

4.Beck

5.The Flaming Lips

6.Eels

7.Ben Kweller

8.Super Furry Animals

Hello, well this is my first ever blog and I thought i would introduce myself. I’m Stuntgoat, don’t worry I’m not some farm yard animal forced to jump out of burning buildings so Tom Cruise doesn’t have to, though he’s about the same size! The name is from my xbox live gamertag and was also the name of a band I was in with some mates. I’m from the city of sauce and Porcelain, Worcester in the UK.

I’d never really though about doing something like this but a friend of mine from xbox live, Glidemaniac (check out his excellent website www.jameswoodcock.co.uk) convinced me I should start a blog just so I can keep him up to date with whats happening in the movie world, especially as he didn’t even know there was a new Superman film coming out! Sorry Glide! So here we are, it won’t just be movies but music and TVand anything that takes my interest really.
