The Recent October

Coca Cola Christmas In The Park

I have registered as a volunteer at this year’s Coca Cola Christmas In The Park. It is going to be held in Auckland on December 8th and broadcast on TV3 a few days later. This year’s chosen charety is again Youthline and it’s going to a great cause – I have joined Youthline on this occasion and have signed up as a online member.

Stand By Me

I have finally come to a movie that relates to me! Stand By Me, the 1986 hit featuring River Phoenix is officially my favorite movie of all time. It reminds me of my childhood so much and it’s really funny. I’m currently studying the movie in English and brought the DVD from a bookstore for $7.


A TV show dedicated to only playing NZ music is great, but it gets even better when they release a soundtrack.
The award-winning TV show Outrageous Fortune, which has played nothing but kiwi music since episode one has released a soundtrack. Featuring kiwi classics such as Hello Sailor, Th’ Dudes, Goldenhorse, Opshop, The Finn Brothers and Greg Johnson, the CD is the best of true kiwi sound. I brought the CD today and it is fantastic. Some songs I haven’t heard before (they are yet to appear on the show), but others I have and I really love it. If Outrageous hadn’t released a soundtrack album, then the possibilities of me buying a NZ music CD would have been very, very slim. Good on South Pacific Pictures for supporting kiwi music and getting it out there!
You can buy the soundtrack and enter a competition for a walk-on role at The Warehouse for $22.99.


I don’t have much to say, apart from some movie news.
I have attended a casting call for the move “Show of Hands” and I have also put my name down on a short list to audition as core cast for another movie. How this will work out (as the filming dates clash) will be interesting; I hope I get into one and not the other, instead of both or none.

Also – I have re-arranged the sidebar. I’ve removed the monthly archive module now because it’s not been used since I changed it to a dropdown menu and removed the counter which displayed how many articles were posted in each month. In it’s place, is the “Categories” module which each post is organised under. It is a much better system and allows you to find what you want, easily.
