I think we can all Breathe Easy

18 12 2008

This relates to my last post; My Apology to the World.

Today I stumbled across this news Article:

“Luhrmann unlikely to cast Kidman again”

While the title is a pure ratings grab which seems to indicate, at first glance, that Baz refuses to have anything to do with Kidman because she’s a terrible actress …

If anyone bothers to read the article it has to do with some clap-trap that they have far too many life changing events while on set together …

Bah!

I prefer to read between the lines; Baz is trying to distance himself from Kidman in the hope that some studio might actually give him money in the future to make some kind of movie …

Because let’s face it, he’s going to have a hard time of it with the poor reception “Australia” seems to have received both with the critics and at the box-office.

Perhaps we can breathe easy that another “Australia” may never be made again!

Phew!

I ran across this today.

“Every NSW public school student in years 9 to 12 will get a laptop they can keep when they leave school, after the NSW government recanted its opposition to the commonwealth’s computers in schools program.”

All I have to say is I got totally gipped in high school! Where was my free laptop???

Does this mean every classroom will eventually have a printer and when you do stuff in class you can print it and the teacher can sit next to the printer and just pick up everything off it …

For the first time ever, I actually want to go back to high school to see what it would be like walking around with a laptop …

Trying to skyve off and play solitaire when the teacher isn’t looking …

Omg, not having to WRITE everything down!!!
