XFCD: The Logic Boat ...

I Must Start Paying Attention To Movie Credits ...

I rarely pay attention to film credits - perhaps I should. I'm one of those annoying people who keep asking 'What was he/she in?"

But I just figured out where I knew the actor who plays 'Jarda' in The Bourne Supremacy. At the same time the face of the actor who played Lord Celeborn in the Lord Of The Rings series was bugging me, too.

Step forward, relative unknown Martin Czokas, who I have just realised also played the rather evil Guy De Lusignan in Kingdom Of Heaven. He's a New Zealand actor who clearly has the ability to step into any role.

Guy De Lusignan
I have little time for actors or actresses who play the same role over and over again, just in different films and under different character name. Much prefer a proper actor like this guy.

Ultimate Minimalist Travel Packing ...

Yup... it's time to think of summer. (Yeah, I know...)

If you're planning a trip, *don't* fall into the same trap everyone else does - dragging around some big-ass bag, or two, full of stuff you will never - never - need or use.

I pack minimally. It's carry-on so I never check luggage (and risk damaging or losing it). And yes, this applies to two, even three week trips.

I would guess this stems from long motorcycle trips - not so much luggage room :-)

So how's it done? This article I recently found on the ever-excellent Lifehacker site is a must-read.
