Rocky Balboa the 6th Rocky film will be having its UK release on January 19th. I am planning on buying tickets to see it on its release date somewhere in central London. Let me know if you want to come along, there will be a compulsory dress-code this is it:

  • boxing shorts (boxer shorts or short-shorts are acceptable alternatives)
  • boxing gloves (this one is non-negotiable, well I might let people get away with those big hulks hands because they’re funny)
  • boxing boots, high-top trainers are acceptable as Rocky trains with Converse all-stars on in the early films. Also high-top trainers are generally 80s-tastic
  • a robe/dressing gown is also desirable but optional
  • for extra points you may want to wear a super small mans crop-top as sported by rocky and Apollo Creed in Rocky 3

As always I am promoting creativeness so you can ignore the above dress-code if you would like to come as a character from any of the rocky films (Thunderlips, Clubber lang, Tommy Gun, Uncle Paulie’s Robot, Geeky Adrian from the first Rocky, etc)

There will be a prize for the best outfit, if you can’t make it to London then sent me a picture of your getup before 19th January.

I got the Police Academy DVD box-set for Christmas which I’m very much looking forward to watching. Initially I was going to watch all seven films in one sittings but I think that might be too much hilarity for even me. What I have decided to do is first watch the films in their entirety for pure enjoyment. I then plan to watch them again taking notes which I will use to relaunch my police academy website of the late nineties.


My friend Kenny Lee tells me there is an FBI agent called “Mahone” in Prison Break. Surely this can’t be a coincidence.

  • FACT: In the late 90s my police academy website was the most popular police academy website on the Internet
  • FACT: In the late 90s my police academy website was the only police academy website on the Internet.

To finish off 2007 is looking to be a very exciting year for films here are a few that I’m particularly looking forward to in no particular order:

  • Transformers
  • Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
  • Spiderman 3
  • Die Hard 4
  • Rambo 4
  • The Simpsons Film
  • His Dark Materials: The Golden Compass
