    Oh, a holiday sounds good about now...

    I had made a start to get back into drawing again, baby steps though I am pleased with the progress so far.

    So did anyone else see A New Hope in Concert at the ICC in Sydney last night?
    Overall I thought it was a lot of fun! Having never seen episode 4 on a cinema sized screen before I absolutely relished the opportunity and the live orchestra was an added bonus!
    Sadly I wasn't particularly impressed with the ICC as a venue, you'd be hard pressed to cram 6,000 attendees in to anywhere else though.
    I have previously seen the first two Harry Potter films in concert at the Opera House. I felt I could appreciate the music just that little bit more at the Opera House as it is designed to fill the room.
    Another thing I felt was a let down was the fact that masks and props were banned from being taken in to the venue. As a result there were barely any cosplayers, but plenty of nerdy SW related shirts!

    I believe they will be doing episodes 5, 6 & 7 throughout the rest of the year. I'm not sure my wallet will quite stretch that far though...

    I went to the concert and had a great evening. First time for me at that venue when I'm used to the Opera House, got a surprise at how many people were there. It was great to hear the orchestra live with the film, though it felt like the acoustics of the room was a bit off.

    They are doing Empire in July.

    I wish everyone will get to experience something like this. At least the Symphony of the Goddesses did tour more around Australia / New Zealand last year, It was looking that Sydney and Melbourne was going to miss out but they added additional shows to their tour and I got to go.

    Cool.

    Hey, I saw Pacific Rim for the first time the other night (yeah I know) but with how many Aussie actor are in Hollywood, did they have to get someone who does the accent so badly? Cringe-worthy to say the least.

    They're used to be a chocolate cherry crown that I once went to Port Fairy for a holiday but drove to Warnambool to clean our the Coles there as they stopped selling them in SA. But alas that was 10 years ago and they don't even make them anymore :(

    The boards as a whole were busier when the prequels were coming out and things eased off around with the home releases as lives have gotten too busy or that "Star Wars is over now, I'm moving on." and a few other factors as well.
