Engagment Party

My friends Adam And Laura had their engament party last night at Comber Bowling Club. It seems to be wedding fever at the moment, with 4 of my friends either just married or engaged. Anyway the last time i was in the bowling club was for Adam's 18th and that was quite a party. Things were a bit more chilled this time, but with some excellent party food and i got to talk to a lot of old friends i haven't seem in ages. Dj Karl was back in action and did a good job keeping the party rocking even after the lights got switched on for a while. I hit the dance floor for a limited time only, whipping out some moves to YMCA, 5,6,7,8, and rocked hard to Livin' On A Prayer and Welcome To The Jungle. Good times. Cheers Adam & Laura, hope the wedding goes well!

Skateboard fun

Went to Belfast yesterday to do a bit of skateboarding with my homie Ben. Haven't skated in so long so was good to cruise around hit some spots. Custom House was closed off for Belsonic, so we headed to Writer's Square and busted some gnarly moves. We then went to find a shop on the outskirts of town, but it had closed down, and on the way back we found a cool ramp someone had built out of scrap on the side of the road. It was amazing and we skated it for ages. Ben jumped on the bus so i headed to the Waterfront for a little while but was politely asked to leave. Good day, glad to be on-board again. (not actual ramp, found it on google)

Went to IKEA for some sweet meatballs and some legs for my desk. That night watched 'No Country For Old Men'. I've had it on my computer for ages but haven't got round to watching it. Anyway its good, cool story and really epic shots, but the ending is a bit of a let down. The cowboy who finds the money is the best, just the way he talks is so badass and he has cool boots. I wish i was a cowboy. Anyway make sure you see this, it got movie of the year and won loads of awards, it ain't that amazing, but still good.

The Dark Knight

Went to see the The Dark Night, one word, Incredible

Party Of The Year!!!

Yes thats right, the party was the most pumping thing in history of the universe!

Saturday night went down a storm. It was the first real party in the new house and we got things off to a good start. We were sitting waiting for people to arrive from 7 and by half 8 we were convinced that no-one would show. At nine the doorbell rang and the party was saved!! We had about 25 people join the festivities and everyone had a great time. It was a "Las Vegas" theme and everyone dressed up nice, the boys in the suits and the ladies had all their showgirl gear on.

DJ Karl had massive speakers set up and a load of disco lights in the kitchen and the tunes were flowing, so before long the whole kitchen was dancing like crazy. The only house party i have ever seen with people dancing, it was crazy! The BBQ totally died and after not much food the poker got underway, We had 2 tables of 6/7 people playing, £10 per person, so there was big money to play for. After 6 hours of play, Steph took home the green, with Chris and Carter coming in behind. I scraped 4th place so sadly, no money for me.

Everyone hit the sack at about half 5, a great night had! Cheers to everyone who made it out, same time next week?

Can't Sleep

Can't sleep. I'm meeting my chum dean early in the morning so tried to get the head down at a reasonable time, but have been lying awake for the past 2 hours. I hate when you need to sleep and can't. Blogging is the answer, not. I don't even know what to write about.

Having a Las Vegas night at the house tomorrow, it will be our first real party. Should have a BBQ and a big poker tournament and hopefully lots of people. Contemplating wearing my tux, but might just wear a suit, with a fake sideburns/mustache combo.

Got an email telling me about Counting Crows and The Hold Steady coming to Belfast sometime soon. I really like both band's music, but they were a real let down live at Oxegen so I probably won't bother going to see them again. Mastodon are coming too so have to check them out, i have heard some really good things.

This guy is having way more fun than me right now.

The '59 Sound

Just pre-ordered myself some sweet sweet vinyl!!!

This Band are incredible, check em out here

Nandos and Wanted

Hey all, sorry it's been ages since i posted, was away in france layin' on the beach (post to come).

Anyway, forgot to post what happened after Oxegen! Well, once we got home we all slept in and woke up hungry, so decided to go for some Nandos (its nando-mania in our house at the minute).

We headed down to Victoria Square and had some great chicken and stuff. The new odeon cinema beside was open so we went to have a look. Nothing good was on apart from Wanted, which according to the screen was unavailable. We went in and asked was there any seats and they said yes. "Okay, how much are tickets?", "Free" he said! Wahey! It was the opening night for all the critics to come and have a look round, but a load hadn't showed up so we got some nice VIP seats! Totally brilliant night, and the movie was awesome. Lots of cool stunts, action and funny too, kinda like an superhero movie for big boys. And Angelina Jolie is a fox.
