Crazy Beautiful People

A happy new year to you all! It's cold and dull in the UK today - the sort of day that you want to stay indoors and watch the traditional Bond film. Or in Pete's case... Sex & The City on DVD.

Last night, Pete and myself went to a very fancy hotel and dressed up in our Black Tie outfits and drank too much champagne and ate too much rich food. Pete had gone a little over the top and booked one of the best rooms, which had access to the outdoor hot tub and sauna. Both were enjoyed in the zero degree weather. One nice touch was the TV at the end of the bath.

And now 2009 has begun with the anticipation and hope of every January the first...

Here are a couple of things that I recommend that you watch:

I noticed a review in Time Out for a French Canadian film hidden away on TV at 2.30am. The film was called C.R.A.Z.Y. and is one of the best films I saw in 2008. It is the story of a family growing up in the 60's and 70's and is concentrated on the fourth son (of five) called Zac. There is a gay storyline, but it's subtle and the story is really engrossing.

A very camp and gay TV programme that I missed on the BBC was called Beautiful People and my friend Sonny gave me the DVD of the series for Christmas. It's really off the wall and very funny. Perhaps it will appeal mainly to the English sense of humour - but worth seeing if you want some silly comedy.
