Birthday and Other Updates (Written Blog at last)

Good Morning Guys

I have not done a written blog in a long time and I have nearly forgotten how to do one of these. I know that some people who read my blog in the past may have moved on which is understandable. Lately my posts have been Youtube videos, as I had nothing esle to say with it.

Anyway things have been a little strange for me. I have been waking up at 4am quite a bit lately which isnt good for my body clock. I had to wake up at that time for the early morning shifts at my job but it stuck with my me for last couple of days. I hope it does disappear after my shift today otherwise I feel I am in trouble.

I have been watching a lot of Top Gear over the last couple of weeks, it includes these

I have to say I like the Challenges and Adventures DVDs they released as they are more interesting to see than testing car dvds which I dont mind watching on TV once and then thats it.

My birthday the other week was really good and had some fun the next few days afterwards. On my birthday I took my family out for a meal to Harvester and it was fun then I got back to find out I had a package and needed to pay £15 for a custom charge which is digusting and never going to order a lot in one order from the states again. I also got a load of presents which include a couple of toys which are shown here

My Toy Shelf

Im proud of all the toys.

The Following day I went to Portsmouth to see Danny and we looked around. We also went to the D Day Museum which was really good as we watched a film about D Day and the leading days of the second World War. It was interesting indeed then at around 5 o'clock we went on the Spinnaker Tower and it was scary at first but got used to the height afterwards. It was brilliant up there.

Saturday I had a gathering for my birthday and it was awesome

Had a long day in Jubilee Gardens, Convent Garden with the Apple Store and Cybercandy, Forbidden Planet and then Leicester Square which left to do other stuff in London and then leaving at around 7 as I was so tired.

Thats it for now everyone. I hope to keep doing written blogs again.

I know they losing touch or people have moved onto Tumblr as I dont like it. Hey it happens it happens.

Take it easy everyone

Friends (TV Sitcom) Looking Back Review

Over the last week I looked on my DVD/Blu-Ray and Video Game shelves and found Friends Season 1-10 Boxset and felt like doing a looking back review.

Information about Friends from Wikipedia

Friends is an American sitcom created by David Crane and Marta Kauffman, which aired on NBC from September 22, 1994 to May 6, 2004. The series revolves around a group of friends in the borough of Manhattan, New York City. The series was produced by Bright/Kauffman/Crane Productions, in association with Warner Bros. Television. The original executive producers were Crane, Kauffman and Kevin S. Bright, with numerous others being promoted in later seasons.

Kauffman and Crane began developing Friends under the title Insomnia Cafe in November/December 1993. They presented the idea to Bright, with whom they had previously worked, and together they pitched a seven-page treatment of the series to NBC. After several script rewrites and changes, including a second title change to Friends Like Us, the series was finally named Friends and premiered on NBC's coveted Thursday 8:30 pm timeslot. Filming for the series took place at Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank, California in front of a live studio audience. After ten seasons on the network, the series finale was promoted by NBC, and viewing parties were organized around the U.S. The series finale (the 236th episode), airing on May 6, 2004, was watched by 52.5 million American viewers, making it the fourth most-watched series finale in television history and the most watched episode of the decade.

Friends received positive reviews throughout most of its run, becoming one of the most popular sitcoms of all time. The series won many awards and was nominated for 63 Primetime Emmy Awards. The series, an instant hit from its debut, was also very successful in the ratings, consistently ranking in the top ten in the final primetime ratings. It is now often regarded by critics to be one of the finest shows in television history. The series made a large cultural impact, which continues today. The Central Perk coffee house that was featured prominently in the series has inspired various imitations throughout the world. The series continues in syndication worldwide. All 10 seasons are available on DVD. The spin-off series Joey was created to follow up with the series after the finale.
