Netflix – No Flix?

A while has passed since my last post! I will put that down to assignments due, interview prep and general rushing around. It doesn’t help when you work in retail over Christmas either, with a lot of hours!

Anyway.. hope all readers have had a nice festive period. This post may concern a few subscribers to the Internet media streaming company Netflix!

007 in 70 Seconds!

Every boy/man would love to live the fantasy life of James Bond. The cars, the women, the action.. everybody loves James Bond. Well Coca-Cola have made the James Bond fantasy real, even if only for just over a minute!

Coca-Cola zero have produced a “real life” James Bond challenge, promoting the new film Skyfall and offering exclusive tickets to the screening!

Cyber Turns Nasty!

Ever been wondering what to do at night when you’ve watched your TV for the night, checked your e-mails, blog, twitter etc?

That happened to me last night. Just flicking through the TV last night and ended up catching the last part of “Lifers” on channel 4+1, which was very intriguing. The program shows that although they have committed terrible crimes that are rightfully punished with life sentences, they are real people!

Anyway, after Lifers there was a short film/documentary entitled “Talhotblond”. After pressing the information button, the brief description was enough to persuade me to watch. Something along the lines of ” A film showing the true story of a mysterious Cyber love and the death that followed”. Whaaaat?

I had to tune in, and I’m glad I did. The story is gripping. Twist after twist ending in terrible news but completely unpredictable. The film is based on true events, which is also unbelievable. It kind of made me think, being an avid Internet user, how safe we really are on the Internet. But I stay well clear of spamming comments and any similar chatrooms that are involved in this story.

I urge all to catch this up on 4OD here, with it only being an hour or so long.

Here’s the trailer guys, check it out!
