I wrote a post almost six years ago about John Darko and the movie 'Sharknado' -
John Darko: Shades of Donnie Darko?
And yesterday out of the blue I get a comment from John about that post.
Now I don't know John and while I did follow him on Twitter for a few weeks just so I could be follower #666, I soon unfollowed him, as I'm not really into Twittering anyway.
I don't think we ever had a Twitter conversation, but I can't remember back to that time now.
I'm pretty sure that he never knew about my blog until yesterday though.
I added an update to the post yesterday when I remembered that Jake Kotze had made a synch video featuring the movie that John had a bit part in, 'This is the End' -
Kotze's Vimeo mainly centers around John's mate James Franco and the subject of losing arms and limbs.
But it also centers around Franco's association with the name Oscar.
Now here's the weird thing, I have a ticket to watch the Oscars live this coming Monday morning on a cinema screen, but my hometown of Brisbane is under threat of being hit by a cyclone that day.
And I have to drive in from outside of the Brisbane city limits.
I can't really remember Brisbane being in the direct line of a cyclone in my lifetime (and I'm over 50).
Cyclone Oma is not the first cyclone to threaten Brisbane
The weather bureau can't seem to make up their mind whether the cyclone will hit Brisbane or not, but either way it looks like Monday's weather could be raining sharks, to put it somewhat metaphorically.

If that will be the case on Monday, I'll stay home and watch it on TV, rather than risk driving in such bad conditions.
Cyclone Oma continues to move towards the southeast Queensland coast

I should mention also that tickets for Elton John's "final Australian tour" went on sale Valentine's Day in Oz and that before the movie I mentioned seeing the other day 'At Eternity's Gate', a preview of the movie based on Elton's life, 'Rocketman' was shown before Gate started.
