    Watched a good sci fi movie yesterday called Spectral plenty of action and a reasonable plot.

    One of the actors Dale Badge Dale had a major part in th e HBO series The Pacific.



    It's worth watching.

    I saw that advertised, but we have not started to watch that show yet.

    Waiting for the last few episodes of Blacklist to get put up.

    We watched the first three episodes of House of Cards yesterday, I can see why people are hooked on it.

    Like the way Frank Underwood talks to the viewer as if you were there with him, looking forwards to watching more of them.

    Watch the episode 21 / 4 of The Blacklist, a friend tells me that there will be a fifth series made.

    Had a email from Netfix this morning, my monthly subscription price has gone up by $2.00 to $14.00 a month.

    Still less than the price of a beer a week, and bügger the government gst tax. :meh:

    The Government has to get their pound of flesh but a $2 tax? Just like here in the US. Half of my phone bill is surcharges and taxes. :caution:

    It's a Goods and Services Tax @ 10%.

    Local big business retailers who suckhole / kiss the NLP coalition government arse lobbied for it as they were whining that people were buying from overseas cheaper than they sold the same products.

    It is already in with Google Play Store, Amazon etc.

    It's a nappy load of shyte Arctos. Import taxes and freight fees make overseas products cost more. If retailers would price their product fairly instead of by the profit margin then there would be no problem. I competed for the money and found that if I could sell lower with more volume I made more money. I didn't have stock holders demanding their cut. :caution:

    The funny part of it is that you can still buy stuff from Amazon cheaper than Harvey Norman a major whiny retailer here in Australia. Jerry Harvey is always crying poor, miserable sod.

    I used to buy quite a bit of stuff from Amazon UK such as dvd and blue ray box sets. They were a lot cheaper even with the freight charge, and delivered within a week, can't get that from the retailers here.

    I still get ebooks from Amazon for my Kindle reader though.

    If you are as big as Amazon then you have the infrastructure to sell cheap. Most items on Amazon is either cheap made or knockoffs. These items can be bought dirt cheap and sold at a slightly higher price to offset a lower price for the good stuff. Volume and spreading the cost. Also like Fleabay they sell what is called old new stock. Stuff they get for tuppence and sell at below retail. I made a good living selling with a low profit margin. My customers came back to buy more so I sold volume. It worked for me. :)

    Watched the latest Magnificent Seven, I was sceptical about this movie when I heard they were doing a remake of it.

    We were pleasantly surprised at the results, excellent magnificent whatever praise you want to pile on it's got it.
