So today I had a few tests at the hospital as ordered by the specialist. These are to find out why I have high blood pressure, see what is causing it.

I had a blood test, and I have to say I've had a lot of blood tests and some of them were painless, some not so painless. But crapola, this one from this morning was torture! It hurt like hell, the nurse didn't put the needle in the usual spot either. The blood was hardly coming out, and I was stuck there for awhile. She was bitching I hadn't had anything to drink which was bull, I had drank ALOT this morning, to compensate for the fact I had to fast. I have no idea what she did, but it still hurts, even though I had it done nearly 6 hours ago and I am really bruised there. NASTY!

I then had an ultra sound around my kidneys as well as some chest x-rays. The ultra sound revealed something was a bit off with my adrenal gland, and that could possibly be a factor with the high blood pressure. I still have to have the ECG, which I will do next week.

I get the full results on the 31st and find out everything and then the next step will be how to go about it. So with any luck in the coming weeks I can treat this and will get better and the high blood pressure will be a thing of the past.

Now it is just playing the waiting game till the 31st, but it isn't that long so here's hoping things can get sorted out.

The Passion Of The Christ

The Passion Of The Christ


I was watching a Family Guy episode and they mention this film in it. It got me thinking about it again, and I felt the need to write down my feelings about it.

Firstly I have to say I hated this film, I thought it was terrible. Nearly everyone was recommending this film to me, and how it changed them and moved them and how powerful it was. That despite how bloody it was, it truly was an amazing film ect ect ect you get the idea.

I really did not know what to expect, so I went in with mixed feelings. Watching it unfold, it was just terrible. Its about a man getting tortured for 2 hours, almost non stop for that entire time. That was it, basically. And Mr Gibson made it as brutal, gory and bloody as possible.

But why? Why did it have to be that way? I have no idea, personally I did not think it was neccessary at all. Not only that but there were other scenes that added things which were unnecessary and disgusting.

Visually it looks alright, but that is about it. The acting is very poor, along with everything else. The film is a complete mess, and whatever message Mr. Gibson wanted to send, well I think it also misses.

This is a terrible film, and my feelings are not based on the fact that I am not religious. That has nothing to do with it, as a film it is really terrible. Perhaps Mr. Gibson should have made one of the Saw films because that is where this level of gore belongs, or maybe an old 70s exploitation film.

Why Hairhouse Warehouse annoys me

See you just want to buy something that will help with Frizz and they end up selling you products you don't really need and that don't even work.

They convinced me last year to to buy this anti frizz Shampoo and Condition and also some other stuff. So far it hasn't gotten rid of my frizz, and my hair does not go as straight either and it seems to go back to being curly alot quicker. My scalp has also gotten rather dry since using the stuff.

I decided not to use the stuff, and my hair hasn't looked this nice for months! It hasn't even been this straight for months. My scalp doesn't even look dry now! What a difference that made.

They just want to make money, and will sell you garbage to get it. You don't get the truth from the so called experts, you get more BS. They can shove their over priced products that don't even work.

Now being unemployed again, I am not going to bother going there and I will stick to the Supermarket stuff that seems to do just fine most of the time! And I will certainly find a better priced place to get my hair cut as well.

Latest Film Reviews

I still haven't reviewed Watchmen, I want to watch it again before I review it.

The Last Dragon - 3/5 - This was a bad film, but a highly enjoyable one. It is so typically 80's and it ooozes with cheese! More hilarious is really small roles for William H Macy and Chazz Palminteri! CLASSIC! I can't believe I hadn't seen this before, definitely one I will watch again and have a good time!

Best Of The Best - 4/5 - I kind of remembered this, but not really. I enjoyed it though, 5 guys chosen for the American Karate Team to face off against the Korean Team. Chris Penn is hilarious, I always liked him as an actor. Eric Roberts rules this movie, his long hair is so bad ass. I liked how it ended too, it was pretty good. Enjoyable, and probably watch it again haha!

Best Of The Best 2 - 3/5 - This doesn't have much to do with the original aside from some of the characters. Its alright, its actually quite brutal in parts and I don't think it really suited it. The really awful badie brought the film down, he couldn't act and he looked a bit ridiculous but the guy that played him was the biggest body builder at the time. It was kind of over the top, some ways good, some ways bad. Again I just loved Eric Roberts, the man looked in fantastic shape at the time! I have a feeling if I had seen this as a kid I'd have probably loved it.

The Specialist - 2.5/5 - Not a total disaster, its enjoyable in the way that it is so bad it is good. Sharon Stone was totally wrong for the role, Sylvestor Stallone does his thing, and he's fine. James Woods is classic, just love the guy. Eric Roberts again haha and he was good, although you gotta wonder why he wants Sharon Stone lol. The sex scene between Stone and Stallone is that bad, not as bad as the Showgirls one, but BAD. You get a really good laugh! That is what this film really delivers, the laughs!

Street Fighter - 1/5 - This is a terrible film, **** knows what they were thinking when they cast this and **** knows what they were smoking when they wrote the script and well everything else! I mean it is soo bad that is freakin hilarious and it is one of the funniest films of all time LOL! I mean yes lets cast Van Damme as the AMERICAN Guile, I mean...seriously...of all the actors you can cast as Guile...I LOVE Van Damme, but he shouldn't have been Guile. Kylie Minogue as Cammy, what they couldn't hire a Brit for the role?? Kylie isn't an actress...made quite clear here! Then we have Japanese Sumo wrestler E. Honda, suddenly becomes Hawiian! RIGHT!!! And what is the deal with Blanka...and Dhalsim, I mean really??? And the storyline, WEAK and SHIT, and urgh! They unintentionally made one of the best comedies!

Best Of The Best 3: No Turning Back - 2/5 - This had nothing to do with the other films except one character. Poorly written, it all doesn't make much sense. Over the top! It was unintentionally funny as well. At least Phillip Rhee puts on good fight scenes, he's build pretty solid too! He likes to show it off since he only wears muscle tops i the film.

The Buddy Holly Story - 4/5 - I thought this was pretty good actually, it showcases the music more than anything which is awesome. Surprisingly Gary Busey is excellent as Buddy Holly, I really couldn't imagine him in the role until I actually watched it. What I really liked actually was that the film finished on a high note, with a fantastic final performance. Certainly worth checking out if you love Buddy Holly or music from that era.

Kickboxer - 4/5 - I really love this movie, I think it is awesome! I mean it isn't a masterpiece but for the type of film that it is, its great! Van Damme is fantastic, seriously he is! The martial arts in the film are awesome, all the fight scenes are great, as is the training stuff. Classic late 80's film, so enjoyable! This is going to get worn out for sure.

The King Of The Kickboxers - 3.5/5 - Get this out of the way first, this film is not Oscar material! The storyline is a Kickboxer rip off, the acting is horrid, the script is rubbish! However these things make this a pretty awesome film! Everything is rather hilarious, and man the training scenes are freakin' classic! Loren Avedon is such a bad actor and I just loved him in it! The ending is classic! I will definitely enjoy watching this again!

Yes folks, those damn mozzies got me again. My feet are full of bites, a few on my leg and a very annoying one on my hand! LOL two weeks in a row, these dumb things must be having a feast!

Blood pressure is still rather high, I thought I was going to have a heart attack when I woke up this morning, bloody awful! And migraines are running rampant, horrible. I hope I can find out what is causing it so it can be treated. It doesn't seem to be something the doctors suspected, I thought surely it'd have gone down by now.
