    Labyrinth is on at the Globe tomorrow night. I did watch it saturday on DVD though. Still, not sure I've ever managed to get to a Globe showing before.

    Hmm..13 dollars on Labyrinth or go see a movie like Benjamin Button...

    Probably would be fun, but at this stage I reckon it would be just as such to organise a movie night at someone's house instead. Of course, I've yet to see Ziggy Stardust... [face_thinking]

    I originally wasn't able to come to this, but thanks to a bizarre set of circumstances involving the Australian Defence Force, a case of Guinness, Sinn Fein and a slippery slide, I can make it now :p

    Keep me appraised of time, location, and what I need to bring.

    Be seeing you,

    Magnus Darcrider

    Sinn Fein? This should be good. :p

    Loz's place, after lunch, so I dunno, about 1:00. No need to bring anything. I'll provide the episodes, Goob will provide the webisodes, and I'll also bring along season 3, because I'd quite like to watch Crossroads pt 2 as a leadin to the season 4 opening.

    In terms of food and drink, there's a bottle shop just down the road, right across from one of the best pizzerias I've been to. I'd say we're set.

    Is Supanova on this list? I know we've been there and done that, but I've somehow become enthusiastic about a costume or two. Honestly I vote we do a steam punk version of every costume we've ever done! :)

    We're thinking of movies... Tonight..Friday.

    Planning on Batman Begins and Dark Knight double, unless anyone else has a better double bill to watch.

    Drinking also, and crashing allowed.

    Stop by if you feel like company, after 6.


    Goobs and K inc.

    Paul was very disappointed that he missed last night - and wonders if anyone would be interested in watching DVDs over here tonight? We've just dug up my evil dead/army of darkness dvds, but will watch anything really.

    Paul says (as a kind of bribe) that there might be monster/rocky road in it for anyone who wants to come over :)

    We've got the munchkin tonight so can't unfortunately..unless an evening of kids movies was desired.:p

    Sorry, you guys missed it. Should've sms'd you probably. Me and my last minute planning. Fun evening, good company.We ended up watching the whole cricket match ( seems more of us like the one-dayers than previously thought) and then Batman Begins , so still have Dark Knight to go at a later date.

    Edit: remembered that BSG airs today. WOOHOOOOO. Will be watching that after munchkin hits the old Toy Story doona. [face_dancing]

    Yeah, thanks again for the invite, K. Was good fun.

    Can't make it tonight I'm afraid Morgan. 'nother time, perhaps. I'd be up for another day of Doctor Who, the last one was great fun.

    The Queensland Theatre Company has sent out it's 2009 Season details, and while there's only one or two plyas I'm interested in seeing, I thought some of you may be interested in the others.

    They are:

    The Alchemist
    That Face
    God of Carnage
    25 Down
    The School of Arts
    Ninety
    The Year of Magical Thinking
    The Crucible
    Toy Symphony


    I'm planning on seeing The Alchemist and The Crucible, but may be persuaded to see the others. Let me know if there's any interest through the usual channels.

    Also, further seats have gone on sale for the musical Chicago. I still haven't arranged to see it yet, so again, let me know if you're interested.

    Be seeing you,

    Magnus Darcrider

    Saturday 31st, from 5pm..last few episodes of BSG followed by new episode at 810pm..hour earlier than I thought.

    This is where we'll be, joiners very welcome.

    Those that need to catch up..you have 3 days..taking Friday off work and staying awake from Thursday afternoon would probably get you through seasons 1-4

    Luke, Kahli, Paul and Morgs, this means you! ;)
