I’ve not seen Aliens for ages, but I watched it last night. It’s still a fantastic film. Some great direction from James Cameron in it as well. Ok, so some of the special effects are a bit ropey, but on the whole this is a classic movie.

DJ Food has put up the first part of his Blech 20 mix for download at his soundcloud page. This was originally performed as part of the Warp20 celebrations in London. Sadly I couldn’t go to that, but I’m quite enjoying this mix as I type this blogpost.
So Ennio Morricone will be performing classic soundtrack music with a 100 piece orchestra and a 100 person choir! Amazing, really tempted to go to this. I doubt he will do the opening tune from The Thing though.
The new DC Recordings website is up and running. This probably happened ages ago, but I never got round to checking until just now. Anyway, there are some mixes you can download on the site and generally it seems to be a lot easier to get round. So head on over and check it out.
A Norwegian TV channel, NRK2, showed an incredibly long documentary called Bergensbanen. It chronicled the scenic train journey from Oslo to Bergen. The programme shows every minute of the scenic journey along the West coast of Norway. I’ve not had a look yet, but you can download all of the footage from the TV programme. It clocks in at seven and a half hours. It is free to download under the Creative Commons License. Fantastic!
This is a Christmas classic. Highly disturbing, but an amazing story as well. The animation is beautiful. I think I’ll be watching this next week.
