This is by far the longest I have gone without posting. Things are happening in my life, good things, which have otherwise occupied my life this week. I know there are thousands of you out there who can't get by without your daily dose of the Nakji, so I am sorry that I have disappointed you. Anyway, again I don't really have anything to say, let's see how long we can pad it out shall we?
I see that Space Nakji and Kira's Slave are both into this novel writing website challenge thingy, I forget the name and can't be bothered clicking to one of their websites to find out, check it out yourself. Anyway, 50 000 words in a month is pretty amazing and I wish them both all the luck in the world. Space is probably the best writer I know, with Gasoline Hobo making an appearance too, and KS just seems full of ideas desperate to get out. I reckon they will both do well and I look forward to reading what they are up to. I corresponded with Steven Pressfield last year after reading a number of his books and he told me that I should write something. When I was a kid I used to love to write, but as I got older I realised that I had no talent! Maybe one day, probably when I am much more famous than I am now. Anyway, good luck!
There has been a lot of blog action while I have been away. This is a very good thing, I like to see my blogfriends posting more. I see that 21C Seonbi is having problems redefining his blog. I wish him luck also as blogs by people with an interest in Korea are few and far between. I have enjoyed his posts and so have my fingers crossed that he can figure it out.
As I write this Halloween Resurrection is on the TV. Can someone please tell me why Michael Myers wanted to kill Jamie Curtis so bad? I don't get it. You would think he would be more protective of his sister... Anyone into these kinds of things?
Speaking of Halloween, it is tomorrow. I hate it! It really is a very foreign idea here in New Zealand and lazy greedy teenagers seem to have tkaen it up while most other people with a brain have left it well alone. I hate it when kids come to our door demanding food, especially the ones who don't even bother wearing costumes. Usually we go out for the evening, anything to avoid damn teenagers!
On the 5th of November we will celebrate Guy Fawkes Day. This celebrates the gunpowder plot when Catholics in England tried to blow up parliament and James I. Needless to say they failed and the bomber, Guy Fawkes was tortured and then killed. For a 7 day period preceding 5/11 you can buy fireworks. Other times they are strictly off limits. I used to love this day, but as I get older it has lost a lot of meaning for me. To top it off, the amount of fires and accidents caused by idiots, almost certainly teenagers, is just not funny. When it comes down to it, Kiwis just can't be trusted. When I am elected Supreme Leader of Aotearoa, I will start by abolishing elections and will then set about sorting out all the foolish people, a bloody hard job, but someone has to do it!
Wait, Jamie Curtis just got stabbed and I think she died. What's up with that? I really should have watched the first movie, or should I have?
I saw Antitrust last night. It was a pretty good film. I wouldn't pay for it or anything, but it was on TV, and it was ok. If you happen to see it that it's on in TV guide or whatever you have, then give it a go.
Wow, this is a bunch of crap post! At least I am giving my public what they want....

San Nakji for President!

"Remember, remember the fifth of November,
the gunpowder treason and plot.
I know of no reason the gunpowder treason
should ever be forgot."

I learned about 11/5 (US date) in "V for Vendetta" by Alan Moore, a graphic novel and soon a major motion picture starring Natalie Portman. In high school I did a report on Fawkes and the Gunpowder Plot based on the graphic novel. I got many facts wrong, as I made them up, and referenced the plot from the comic throughout the report. The teacher gave me an "A" and and unshaking belief that high school sucked.

Halloween Roolz, dood! This was a crap post. ;-)

As Halloween, it's an interesting day.

Happy All Hallow's Day, San Nakji!

We don't celebrate Guy Fawkes Day here in Canada, but you can buy fireworks/firecrackers for Hallowe'en. (This and Canada Day are the only times when one can by them.)

It may be some sort of holdover legacy from colonial days.
