well over here brat isn't that friendly either but for as long as i've been alive "army brat" is the "nickname" associated with kids in the military (in this case kids whose folks are in the army)...i've always taken it as an affectionante endearment for kids who move around thanks to uncle sam...

i love imitating accents, i can do the upper crust english and and a halfway decent scottish accent...my irish one is really weak and i can't get the australian accent down very well...my pitch is off...but i think they're fun...

btw thank you for the 'kiwi' explanation...for the longest time i kept thinking it had something to do with the kiwi fruit lol...

Kiwi fruit indeed! Nah... It's just a term of endearment for us.

Okay... My mum just laughed when I told her what you'd said about the whole Army Brat thing. I still don't get it, it's kinda mean, but oh well.

And whats with the "Uncle Sam" thing? Whos he? And why is he so important?

I can do English, Scottish, Irish and semi Aussie... Plus Maori, and Polynesian accents. Not done too badly either, if I do say so myself. Oh and I can do a slight French accent, compliments of taking French for two years.

well army brat is a term of endearment so it's not offensive but uncle sam is the nickname in the states for the government...way back in the 40's during ww 2 there were posters military recruiters used that had the slogan "uncle sam wants you" so it just a slang term if you will...that's the best i can describe it....i'm pretty sure i'm missing something in regards to the explanation....


another accent i love is the southern accent of the u.s., there are so many variations but i love the creole/cajun ones from louisiana and the other southern accents from georgia and texas...

Sounds like on of those movie's that are absolutely pointless... I love those movies. Kinda like Empire Records, and the Jay and Silent Bob series.

Was the movie that pointless??

Have you ever seen Super Troupers? Now that's one pointless movie! The first time I saw it I thought it was boring, but that's because I was with my parents and trying to act all nochalant about it....

I've seen bits of it now, and it's kinda funny.

But I prefer the old pointless random movies - Dazed and Confused, Empire Records, Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy....

They have great actors and actress which all seem to pop in the same movies... I just love that generation... 1993-5... I was still a kid.

Oh definately. That whole series is a classic. Altho, I totally prefered Mallrats to Chasing Amy or Clerks.

Clerks was a little too doco style for me, altho I don't mind watching it a couple of times, and Chasing Amy just seemed a little too pointless and aimless for me.

I actually went out and bought Mallrats on DVD even tho I don't have a DVD player. Stupid huh?

The one I really want to get tho is Empire Records and Dazed and Confused... I just adore Rory Crochane. Mmmmmm... Yummy.

Watched a weird one last night. Dungeons and Dragons. Never played the game, but my flatmate told me that compared to the game, the movie totally blew.

I also watched Whale Rider for the first time, at about 5am. Funny... I'm a Kiwi, but I'd never seen it before. I'm always wary of New Zealand films.

The majority have that "Made-for-TV" feel about them, even if they weren't. Kinda like Bootmen, or The Castle, if you've ever seen those. Actings kinda second rate... Altho I loved Bootmen.

Rambling. Always Rambling.

i haven't seen 'whale rider' but i have heard good things about it...did you like it? since you said you have a general reluctance for kiwi cinema, has it improved since the last time you saw it?....
