OK, So it turns out I'm Dead

Tonight we shot the first Werewolf attack scene. I was originally scripted to survive the attack but thats a bit implausible (assuming that an Indian werewolf is though) i like this look though - Ive got a Bill Weasley thing going on. Now to find that Fleur :D

A Few Observations

I think tow trucks are the vultures of the road.

You see them waiting in hotspots, hoping that someone crashes. I dont think anyone else thinks like that - except hot twenty year olds who marry old guys for their money.

I dont know who to vote for this year. I dislike DA for calling themselves the official opposition. Whats the implication there? That everyone else competing against the ANC isnt? Thats my biggest problem with the DA - everything is just too reactionary with them. While Im speaking politics - why is everyone so secretive about who they are going to vote for?

I dont see anything beneficial from Cope. In fact - I think this year im going to vote for Rajbansi. If anything - he is entertaining to listen to. I wasted my vote last time on SOPA, might as well waste it on MF.

The Muslim community in South Africa lost a great Champion this week with the death of Pat Poovilingam. The charismatic no bullshit political commentator. His pieces used to inspire me.

Coming back to Elections - so I see this group on Facebook called 1000 000 people against Zuma for President. Apart from the fact that it only has 7000 people who joined - how many of those people have registered to vote? I had a look at the wall - Just a bunch of racist idiots (yes - I just generalised)

Heroes has lost the plot. Its gone really dumb now. They should introduce a character with a pointless ability - like a guy who has a period and bleeds through his ass one a month. The problem with the fundamental structuring of such a show is that it is based on the assumption that all powers enhance a person... make them superior.

Whats up with everyone saying wow these days? So many people - im not sure whether they realise that they are doing it, but everyone just inserts a wow in conversation.

Seems like a lot of shit movies are coming out lately - but im looking forward to Wolverine, Harry Potter and Underworld. I wish they make a sequel to High School Musical, so I can boycott that too!

I'm only playing Resident Evil 5 and Super Mario Galaxy these days. I wish more wii games were like Super Mario Galaxy. Actually, I wish more games were like it. Its fun. I'm glad it won Game of the Year in 2007. Bioshock was amazing, and Call of Duty 4 was sublime.... but this is fun! Gaming choices is alot like choosing a girlfriend. The wii is the ugly girl with the wonderful personality. Theres quite a few of them around. The Playstation is the hot shallow chick who Killa writes about in his Daddy's Girl post. She looks pretty and she can do lots of things in bed - but no one cares. You like her because you think shes popular - meanwhile shes broken and bankrupt inside. and the Xbox is the moody bitch who is wonderful from time to time.

The Playstation 2 is the 39 year old Divorcee who just wants sex.

Ugly Girls deserve less Mehr *

I should do a gaming post - but not now - Now I'm going to kill some African Zombies in Resident evil 5. The game makes for an interesting debate about racism in gaming - i'l look into this in a future blog.

Concerning Werewolves 2

Just completed my second day on set for the Indian Werewolf movie that im acting in, and I must say - I'm exhausted. The movie is taking shape and I think it will be released around June. We were discussing it over Spur on Saturday night and Now I think the plan is to get it into the Durban Film Festival. Not because its a high calibre production or anything, but just because the free publicity would be awesome. I'm cheap like that :)

Tonight we filmed the 'big match' (The Man United Liverpool match where Neville first changes into the werewolf) The location was 'my house' (not my real house - my room was used for the first scene of the movie) and we had this thing where my mum is really hot.. yeah - basically I play a Stifler rip off.

Turns out I dont get a death scene because they want me in a sequel (like thats going to ever happen - although it would be cool if I had a Rob Shneider thing going on, and appeared as a cameo in every single movie Masood makes. Aargh what did I just type - I just wished to be like Rob Shneider - I take that back. Rob Shneider is as good as acting as a blind car Guard is at looking after my car.


Heres a picture of the bitches who get slaughtered tonight. Coolie Hulk to the left of me is the same guy that Waseem wrote about two years ago - The Survivor Dude. The Lead actor is to my right.

Im typing this blog so that when i'm older and I scroll through my archives i'l remember the time when I acted in my first and probably last movie :)

Concerning Car Guards

One of the geriatric car guards popped in at my shop today and asked me if I could copy a dvd for him. So I asked him if it contained any copyright material and he said No, and that it was very special to him.

So I figured it was his Granddaughters Graduation or His Daughters Wedding Dvd or something like that.

A family had come in to buy a pair of Singstar Mikes so while they were going through the catalogue of titles I thought I'd pop it into the DVD player quickly and test the copy I made for him.

Turns out it was a Home Video of Two Guys Banging a Chick.
