Great fun rockin' like Dokken once again, catching up with old friends and engaging in many colourful conversations with the various members of the Nancy Vandal Fruity Youth Legion of Tomorrow. You rock you crazy nerds.

Hey Fox,

I enjoyed the filum version of Let the Right One In but have not read the book. Let me ask you something, is the book literary enough for someone like me? It sure does have a literary name.
I acquired a motorcycle today and now I'm going to ride it at high speeds through Canberra suburbs.

I am one of said rock nerds! Thanks for those shows as well. Really. Also really; you should hit the road again in 2010. It rhyme, and you cannot argue with that

Glad to see Basterds and Drag Me To Hell made your list; loved 'em both. Definitely hunt out A Serious Man ASAP; it's the brothers Coen at their most witty and sardonic I might say...

And thanks for recommending We Are The Physics to me; that album is damn good, despite being way too trendy for its own good. It still rocks

Dude. You need to see In The Loop. Like now. Seriously.

Also the Great Nancy Vandal Comeback Tour of 2009 was in no way, shape, or form generic, rather it was possibly moar awesome than getting the RuddKips stimulus package twice due to kickass loopholes caused by rushing it through.

3 Comments - this place is going off!!

Arc - The movie was awesome but the book is awesomer - The character of Eli's "handler" is way more grotesque and has a greater role in proceedings.

A-Mac - Yep mos def will see ASM. Glad I could steer you onto WATP after the volumes of helpful shit you have passed my way

Ames - Mos def will check out In The Loop - are you familiar with any of Armando Iannucci's other gear? I haven't seen much but he sounds rad. Any colleague of Steve Coogan and Chris Morris is a broseph of mine.

A bit disappointing that the demise of the internerd's (boy am I ever witty) most infamous AFL website was left out of your 09 summary.
