All stand together
For the world to see
Now the time is right
To live out all our dreams
Say the words forever
Your strength will never leave
If you want to win the fight
Say, "I Believe"

As always, HERE THERE BE SPOILERS

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince:

More like Harry Potter and the Half-assed Prints, amirite? Anyway, even Alan Rickman and the badass Inferi scene can't save this chunklog from disappointing those who read the books. No battle at Hogwarts? Burning down the Burrow? Yet we have plenty of time to watch Ron rollin' on E get all googly under the effects of a love potion? Total crap. It was as if the pile of pages marked "Extra content cut for time" was swapped with the pile marked "Material for best Harry Potter movie ever!" and no one noticed until it got to the editing room. They even managed to take the emotional punch out of Dumbledore's death. Though I may just be bitter. I can't help it, no man should have to outlive his fictional wizard! 3/10

Swamp Thing:

A wimpy scientist who loves the swamp becomes part of them after a lab accident/hostile takeover and fights evil while trying to woo his badass love interest in the body of a plant. This is pure, uncut 80's cheese, complete with explosions galore (often for no reason whatsoever!) and a wisecracking black child. Unlike most 80's flicks though, this one swaps out "The musclebound hero" and "The damsel in distress" for "The nerdy scientist" and the all-too-rarely-seen "Competent female lead". He spends a lot of time cowering, and she racks up a few kills. This one was actually fairly good, despite the special effects not /quite/ holding up. Though it was a nice change of pace to see a movie that actually had a story instead of just showing off CGI. 6/10

Timecrimes:
A really interesting and bizzare film. A man travels slightly backward through time accidentally and participates in a series of strange events. The lead character is kind of unlikeable, so on one level you enjoy his suffering, but not enough to see him destroyed by his meddling in the time stream. The supporting characters are more than scenery This one is rife with that good old predestination paradox, and uses it in some interesting ways throughout the film. There are some pretty amazing moments when the time traveler beings going back in time willingly... 8/10

So I go down to the gas station to get some snacks, but I can't, 'cause the on-ramp is blocked. So, remembering there is another, slightly less ghetto gas station down the street, I proceeded cautiously. When I pulled up, the place looked closed, except for the "Open 24 Hours" sticker on the door. I prepared myself for an onslaught of what passes for hip-hop around here and the inevitable encounter with what would likely turn out to be a clerk whose personality, wit and charm could be exceeded by a bit of mouldy* cardboard. I gathered my things and myself, breached the airlock, prepared for the worst.

...to be serenaded by, of all things classical music. Puzzled, I wandered inside. When I had secured my items, I proceeded to the checkout. There I expressed my bewilderment at the infusion of class to such an establishment to the clerk Sean (or so his nametag said). He explained that he wished he could take credit for it, but he had no control over the station. Then he dropped a train on me. "...and it keeps the homeless away". Before I could reply, a large angry woman with a buzz cut called him away and took command of the register. Behind me, others were waiting and I sensed that answers would not be forthcoming. The music faded. Stunned, I retreated to my lair, the implications of his statement echoing in my mind the whole way.

Some days, I just want to put the barrel of the shotgun in my mouth and pull the trigger.

Other days, I want to turn the barrel on the world and pull the trigger until every last piece of human garbage is dead, and the earth is clean again.


See
what
I
mean?

Fuck everything.

On the Aztec Calendar, today is signified as Malinalli (grass), and the deity to which today is dedicated is Patecatl. This day signifies tenacity, rejuvenation and that which cannot be uprooted forever. Malinalli is a day for persevering against all odds and for creating alliances that will survive the test of time. It is a good day for those who are suppressed, a bad day for their suppressors.

On the way to work today, I drove through a large thunderstorm. The further I went on 70, the darker the sky became. I saw cloud-to-cloud lightning, but more impressive was the quadruple strike directly in front of me. Then the rains came. Not really a torrential downpour, but it was plenty wet out. It has slowed down a bit since I got here, but seems to surge up now and again. It is good.

So, Cinci has it's own super losers, eh? Let's see what the Consortium of Evil has to say about this...



Hmm... I guess they already know.

There was quite the gathering at the feeder this morning, but by the time I got my camera, only this guy remained. Most restaurants post their first dollar, so here are my first customers.

I promise not to post any more about this birdfeeder unless something genuinely awesome happens to it.Collapse )
