    Winging Your Way Through The Weekend

    12.04.13 | Permalink | Comments Off on Winging Your Way Through The Weekend

    Highlights this week; term time’s almost up, we’re seven days into having brought the sun forward for winter and apparently the rain’s coming back for a visit. Enough small talk though, here’s this week’s ender-entry to give you a two day break from the school work.

    If you’re an adventurous titan, and like to work alliteratively, here are some things to do on Saturday – that start with ‘S’:

    Skating takes over the waterfront in two forms. The Richter City roller derby season kicks off on Saturday night at the TSB arena in a home season battle between Smash Malice and Comic Slams. For a quick scrub-up on the ins and outs of the game look no further than Y/A novel Whip It and its sister movie starring Ellen Page.

    Still keen on skating but not so sure about all the aggression – why not try your hands, or feet – or feet then hands, on the ice? The ice rink is in full operation on Queens wharf just a short hop from the TSB. For our older readers Blades Of Glory might be a quick introduction on how not to act on the ice but for some pointers and to figure out if you can make a career out of it why not check out some of our literature?

    Okay, okay enough with the skates. I wouldn’t leap into the water at the moment on account of its chill factor but one way you could get some surfing in is by checking it this sweet free free flick by Alex Monteith at The Dowse Gallery in Lower Hutt.

    And here’s a quick weekly musical digest to help shape your weekend playlist:

    Pete Wentz’s Fall Out Boy graced our shores this week on the back of their latest album drop.
    Kiwi band Tahuna Breaks are in town this weekend for their Shadow Lights album release tour and are currently sitting near the top of the NZ album charts.

    Harry Potter Part 1 Trailer Part 2

    24.09.10 | Permalink | Comments Off on Harry Potter Part 1 Trailer Part 2

    It is fitting that a book that’s become two movies should have more than one trailer for each part. Here’s another sneak peak at Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1. More creepy Voldemort, more foreboding skies, more special effects. Edge of your seat stuff (and it’s only 2 minutes and 28 seconds long).

    Chilling.

    It’s  been an age since we linked to some parkour/freerunning videos. So we must remedy that! Watch this video and marvel as gravity is defied.

    Do you like this? Go to the NZ Parkour Association website!

    ETA: some more on parkour, here’s a summary of Chase Armitage (professional free runner (which you can be)) and his talents.

    The window is the best bit.

    X-Men Origins : Wolverine is now in the library and ready to be reserved. If you want to watch it! You probably have seen it. It doesn’t have Taylor Lautner in it, so I might give it a miss.

    Here’s X-Men Origins : Wolverine in only 30 seconds, to save time.
