  1. Some of my favourite things - films, albums, books, favourite composers etc, got some appalling reviews - so I take reviews as a very rough guide and always use my own instinct. Matt
  2. Very excited by all of it and am on a nine week holiday so sitting with my guitar on my leg, a glass of something and just lapping it all up. The gymnastics, football and Judo have been my favourites Matt
  3. Contact, The first Matrix, The Artist, Lawrence of Arabia, Sideways, Rocky 2, James Bond You Only live Twice are just a few that make me feel quite uplifted:) films are a passion close to music for me, so we own a fair few, there's loads others - these were just from the top of my head. Matt
  4. Loving the whole tournament and have watched all the games apart from one - way better then the South Africa World Cup! The English press are slowly eating their words too. Yes, things looked understandably bleak; a coach who had only been with England for two games (three weeks!) at the start of the tournament, Rooney suspended for the first two games, only 2 of the 4 Chelsea Champion league players not injured, a series of other injuries and several key players missing, yet I think there is a great deal to be happy about -i.e a good team spirit! The England vs Sweden game was great, (but nail biting LOL) and I think in the light of the above they finish the campaign being knocked out the quarters, then it is actually not a bad result... and who knows, they could go further - it is football, anything can happen Hodgson is looking to the world cup too and building on some of the young talent! Come on Engerlund!!! Matt
  5. The werewolf transformation is my least favourite episode. There is nothing terrible, in a stand out awful way; it's simple crime is it is very dull and pedestrian in it's story, script and humour I have watched it three times too - the only thing I really like the idea of is Sheldon's haircut records. That was a nice comedic touch Matt
  6. I watched all the Hannibal Lecter films back to back yesterday and was so moved by seeing beautiful Florence again (in the last film Hannibal), I was watching with one eye on the film - and the other on my iPad looking for possible music teaching jobs LMAO!! I am black haired and dark eyed and tan very easily, I know I could slot right in here or Spain!! Matt
  7. I have jalapenos in almost everything
  8. Kaley is superb as Penny, but my reasoning is that because the character Penny is a fairly common type of person (albeit with good looks), that either getting another person to either play Penny if Kaley left, or even having another Penny 'type', or... even ditch the character altogether and go with another neighbour entirely - would not be detrimental to the current show (and the way it is going): It has moved on a fast pace these last two seasons... Replacing the four lads however would be catastrophic; because they are not common everyday people and the comedy is more complex with them - i.e their mannerisms are so full of idiosyncratic that the actors have really made their own (not literally - but in interpretation), that if any one of them left, I think loss of dynamic could kill the show. Matt
  9. I think Penny could quite easily be replaced by another new lady living across the hall. As the show has changed/evolved, it wouldn't have to be another Penny either, it could perhaps be a girl/woman with 'issues' - or even a variation on the theme of Lesley Winkle giving Sheldon non stop grief could be great! Matt
  10. I think when the USA enters into a tournament like the World Cup, (which is literally just that, a competition involving the whole world), it does endless good for Americas PR; as it smashes the stereotype that the nation is insular and not concerned about things outside it's borders...which having visited the States eight times and having close friends/family there, I know is not true! This is the side of sport I love, the power it has to bring hope and positivity - as well as making people feel proud of where they are from. Clint Eastwood's excellent film 'Invictus' really got that across (and also reminded me why I love rugby so much!!) Matt
  11. The USA could be one of the top teams in the very near future IMHO; there are of course top players like Dempsey and Donovan, but more than that; there are such a huge quantity of people living in the USA and the country has a very positive 'give it their all' attitude to competitions; if the sport can keep gaining momentum like it has, then it is just a matter of time... and yes Brazil are amazing!! One of my favourite national teams to watch. It is like watching a team of characters from the Matrix playing! Matt
  12. I loved it this season when he defended his love of 'Sandy B films', saying that she was "great in everything" LOL ha ha Matt
  13. having ordered pizza and then record some guitar
  14. me! I cannot wait We are seeing England play Belgium at Wembley this weekend, their last friendly of course before facing France! Can't wait I am supporting England and as always (because of the guitar) my beloved Spain!!!! Matt
  15. I would love to see some more of Leonard's mum with Sheldon. Maybe having her and Amy competing for his mind and being very caty underneath all the science
