Thank you Markus (https://themarckoguy.wordpress.com) for nominating me for the Sunshine Blogger Award.

An award that shows a little recognition to some of your favourite bloggers.

A much needed pick me up after my lack of motivation and writer’s block.

And yes sir, you are right! There’s more to it than just receiving the award, you have to do some stuff.

I had been nominated for a Dragon one (or some mythological creature) before that I don’t think I got round to completing (A big sorry to the wonderful bloggers who did nominate me for that).

WHAT ARE THE RULES?!

  • Post the award on your blog
  • Thank the person who nominated you (Markus! You the man!)
  • Answer the 11 questions they set you (Ah sheeeettttt)
  • Pick another 11 bloggers (and let them know they are nominated!)
  • Give them 11 questions

So here’s my answers to Markus. Enjoy . . . Hopefully.

1. Is there any movie you tend to rewatch a lot more than others?

There is always one film. No matter what part or time of day I can watch without failure. Laugh and cry at the same rewatched moments. Quote the lines word for word. That movie is Mrs Doubtfire.

2. What’s your favorite band or artist?

5ive. Nah, favourite band at the moment has got to be Three Six Mafia. Corn on the cob . . . Bitch give me . . .

I’m kidding, Kings of Leon.

3. Do you listen to any podcasts (if so, which)?

I don’t. A wrong I need to right as I follow some terrific people with some top podcasts http://feeds.feedburner.com/WeeklyWatch https://twitter.com/da_nibbler

4. Are you good at cooking?

Am I good at cooking?! Am I good at . . . This guy. To answer your question, no. I’m a connoisseur of the Pot Noodle and a microwave chef.

5. How many movies did you watch in the cinema in 2016?

Only 76. Quiet year.

6. Most anticipated movie of this year (2017)?

Fifty Shades Darker, obviously. Nah, Justice League. Not the biggest DC fan BUT it looks too good to fail. Great cast. Teasers ticking all the boxes. Can Synder make amends?

Famous last words.

7. Have you ever broken a bone?

Does a chicken bone count? If not then . . . Nooooo. Not yet anyway.

8. Do you have any pets?

No. But I’m a cat man.

9. What’s a movie that you think is very overrated?

So many films to choose BUT one that really grinds my gears . . . THE REVENANT. Leo deserved an Oscar, no question. Just not that for that movie!

10. Do you own any movie/TV/video game merchandise?

In terms of movie/video game related stuff, I have PS2 (PS . . . Whoooo?) games of The Lord of The Rings, Harry Potter and The Matrix.

11. Is there any place in the world that you really want to visit before you die?

I would love to go to Japan. I would love to get caught up in the culture. Plus I bloody love karaoke. Well, I go on about it a lot when I’m drunk. Or so I’m told.

  1. I believe our cooking skills are equal! Can’t believe you went to the cinema 76 times !?!?! I would have been broke (it’s so expensive where I live). Thanks for the mention, I’m going to have such a hard time nominating people because you guys take everyone, haha!

    1. Haha. Luckily I have an Unlimited card for the cinema. Cost 17 pounds a month. Only have to see 2 films and I’ve broke even. Hazaar! Believe me I would have cried if I had spent actual money on most of those movies! From one micro chef to another, good luck!

  2. Thank you! Wow – 76 movies in a year?! Good job! : ) And I’d LOVE to visit Japan. Here are my answers:

    What’s your favourite movie? – Too many… It’s between Aliens, The Princess Bride, Stand By Me, and… Can I have ten favorites?? : )
    Your least favourite movie? – I hate LOADS. Not sure I have a “most hated”. Really bad comedy annoys me. And bad horror (which is most of them)
    Are there any movies you’ve lied about seeing to your friends just to get them off your case? – Nope 🙂
    Are there any movies you’ve seen that you won’t tell your friends? (Come on, sharing time) Tell me your guilty pleasure! – Nah! I’m not ashamed of anything. If I like a movie, it’s good. 😉
    Favourite book? – The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy
    Is there a book/TV show/musical that you would like to see adapted to the big screen? If so, what and why? – Hmm. I’d like to see them try Tank Girl again & make it work this time.
    Favourite TV show at the moment? – Game Of Thrones
    What would be your dream job? – Working for Pixar
    What do you like to do on your down time? (Keep it clean!) – Watch movies, of course
    If you could meet three celebrities, dead or alive, who would they be and why? – David Bowie, Carrie Fisher, Dave Grohl. Because they are/were awesome.
    What was your most embarrassing moment? (Ah ha. Thought the questions were a little tame) – I honestly can’t think of one. I try to avoid embarrassing myself. I’m easily embarrassed!

    1. Wicked. Pixar would be awesome! Tank Girl . . . Interesting haha. I could never get into the movie.

      Fair play on the embarrassment question. Great choices on the celebrities and movies 👌🏻

      1. Funny enough, I was going to message you. It was on the telly last night. Lori Petty was actually pretty good. BUT I couldn’t watch the whole thing lol. The singing in that club scene. Yikes.
