30 days of creeping insanity to go


Well, the Onion has pretty much hit the nail on the head with this one. I've always wondered 'why don't they let women into combat' in the armed forces. The answer I've always gotten was 'nobody wants to see their little girl come back dead. The little boys, sure, why not'. I have always secretly thought it was because the 'good ole boy system' secretly worried women might be better at it. Personally, I think women shoud get equality - and I do mean equality.


How embarrassing for them.


I'm wondering how this movie could have made back double the budget. Apparently, they spent $10m and made over $20m. This movie has all of the clichés of a zombie movie. The reluctant hero that doesn't have a weapon. The black guy who has a weapon but dies first. The girlfriend whose boyfriend just doesn't get her - and she's stressed out and pregnant. The big breasted bimbo who may or may not have a heart of gold. The older guy who has the keys - in a literal sense. After reading some of the other movie reviews of this, I'm wondering if America is setting the bar lower these days for what is 'a good film'? It continues on it's zombie movie clichés by having the people separated and alone, struggling for freedom, blah, blah, blah. Avoid this film. [Note, I submitted this review to IMDB as well. The review isn't great but considering how bad this movie was, the review may actually be better than the movie...] 2/10 stars.


Here are some rain noises. They help me sleep. They might help you sleep. I wanted to get them recorded so that I could have a link to where they're at in my e-mail in case some kid ever steals my MP3 player. If/when I buy a new one, I can put new sleepy time rain noises on it. I figured I'd put them up here in case it is of use to anyone out there. These are not my rain noises, but good luck ever figuring out where they came from.


The stats for the month are in. Dec, 698 page views, Jan 860 page views. If I was getting a dollar a hit, I'd be really enjoying the number of hits. As I make exactly a dollar less than that per hit, it's just 'neat'. I'm really curious as to what happens when I know... actually "go somewhere". I think it would be ironic if the hits fell off and people said "Watching him go crazy from NOT traveling was actually more fun". Swine.


8 minutes till the first kill. It wasn't a bad one. Not sure where the movie is going after 11 minutes in but we'll see. (Cut to, later). This movie I rate 4/10 stars. I didn't much care for the characters, action (too long between shootings or explosion) or the story - it was very predictable. Don't bother with this one.


Thus far my favorite part of this is about 20 minutes into the movie. Without giving anything away, I can say that it involved midgets. Funny as hell. Other parts I like include the brief 'Electric Avenue' skit. Some of the stuff was just stupid like the field goal kicking. They also discovered just how hard the game of 'pin the tail on the donkey can really be. And, finding out why they call a certain animal 'a ram'. The 'Poo Cocktail Supreme' was one of the more disgusting things I've ever seen. Give it a 6/10 for some novelty stuff. There were parts I fast forwarded over however.

I'm guessing with all of these movie reviews, people will be able to tell I am bored out of my skull...


I was reading this article and it was speculating that the youth in the rest of Africa are plugged into the internet and soon may go into the same sort of thing as Northern Africa. This is interesting - I don't know if it will happen or not but it should be interesting to keep an eye on. Thanks to Josh for the link to the new Arabic newspaper.
