GETS PUNCHED IN THE FACE. Many movies got robbed this year…like 127 hours, Winters Bone, The Kids are Alright, and a few others but THE SOCIAL NETWORK was not robbed. It received its necessary accolades, and was a great movie. Yet The Kings Speech was better…I swear every imbecile who uses the words “Oscar Bait”. It is not Oscar bait it is an inspirational film about the art of speech. A story that transcends the mere confines of its Generation, and inspires us all. Many detractors of the film have not seen the film, which annoys me. Yes Hate something that you’ve only seen the trailer for…asinine fools. Sorry I am just pre ranting because I know this will be on every film website, every podcast, and every conversation in the next few days and I don’t want to hear it. You are allowed to disagree with my take, or the academies decision but if you use the word “oscar bait” I swear to god violence will ensue.
The last few days I have felt dead. Ambition is gone. Its like I’ve just accepted my fate, what that fate is…I don’t really know. I need to become more energetic again, and I need something to shoot for. I am lurking the depths for inspiration. The fact that many films that I’ve seen recently involve heavy depressing themes. I love movies, I watch them all the time, but I feel like I am not intelligent enough to fully comprehend some of them. I get the plots, but I might be missing the meaning, or I may get the meaning and the depressing factors of it have led me to this mood. I know noone reads these…which is kind of the way I like it….feels like a journal writing down the thoughts as they reach my mind. So to sum it all up….life is bleh.
You like things that are indie your a “Hipster”…You like classic foreign things your “Artsy”….You like Sci Fi your a “Fanboy”…You like pop culture your a “follower”. WELL SOCIETY…I am a living fuck you to your stupid classifications. Yeah thats right I LIKE ALL OF THOSE THINGS…equally in fact, so society get rid of this bullshit and deal with the fact people have different tastes. You think you can deem an individual into one facet of taste? YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW PEOPLE WORK you stupid idiotic individuals. Sure you may prefer one type of art, to another but chances are you’ll find something you love in every one of these so called “labels”. People are people, and they cannot be classified by your immature unintelligent classification…you know what fuck it I’m getting drunk
with Scott Pilgrim vs the World. I can’t believe I just found out about this movie, it’s amazing. Everything about it- the characters, music, style, EVERYTHING. It’s full of awesome. I can’t wait to get the soundtrack and read the books!
“Let’s see… Blueberry, Raspberry, Ginseng, Sleepytime, Green Tea, Green Tea with Lemon, Green Tea with Lemon and Honey, Liver Disaster, Ginger with Honey, Ginger without Honey, Vanilla Almond, White Truffle Coconut, Chamomile, Blueberry Chamomile, Decaf Vanilla Walnut, Constanct Comment, and Earl Grey.”—Ramona Flowers - ‘Scott Pilgrim’s Precious Little Life’ (via angusthemovie)
I just finished Episode one of the Back To The Future game, and man was it amazing. It was like playing Back To The Future 4…exactly what you would expect from Back To The Future. The gameplay was simple point and click puzzle solving which were the perfect difficulty. The puzzles made you think but they did not overwhelm or annoy you. The character portrayals were interesting and unique with enough throwbacks to the original to make you overjoyed. The time period is used extremely well, and meeting a Teenage Emmet Brown really fleshed out an already amazing character. Seeing Hill Valley yet again going through a make over was very enjoyable. There were plenty of nods to the original flicks….the one law firm is called “Gale, Zemeckis, and Fine” a reference to the Bob Gale, and Robert Zemeckis two of the most prominent members of the trilogy. Anyways I don’t want to spoil all of its goodness just if you have a computer, and love Back To The Future you owe to yourself to try this game.
Yesterdays nerds are todays billionaires. If you look at the most successful and well known corporations, like Apple, Microsoft, or Facebook they all have one thing in common. They are run by Nerds. These are highly intelligent individuals who know how to market their brand and create a successful business.
As a child you are always told that being “popular” at school is everything. That being a nerd is a bad thing. Well look at those supposed “popular” people nowadays. What are they doing with their life? They are working for the guy they called a nerd in public school. With the advent of technology the concept of being a “nerd” has become much less of a negative thing. For example take the cell phone, do you know what the original cell phones were designed like? They were designed like the communicators from Star Trek. People who loved the show “Nerds” saw something they liked, and strived to build it.
It’s not just with technology though, look at your television. Some of the most popular shows on TV involve Nerds. Like “Big Bang Theory”, or “Glee”. Then go to the movie theatre and see the highest grossing films. Movies like “Avatar”, “Star Wars”, and “Inception” rank up the highest. Listen to the music on your radio, and you’ll most likely hear artists like “Lady Gaga” who were criticized for being who they were in public school, and have now risen to great heights. Doubt she is a nerd? Well compare some of her outfits to popular science fiction films like “Alien” you will notice a direct stunnign resemblance. Almost everything nowadays has a little dash of nerd.
The world today is one that is constantly evolving, and expanding, and to keep up with it you need to throw away all of societies “cliques” and just learn to work with your fellow man. Nerds are everywhere, and we aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. They do so much for society, yet get very little respect from the people. They get ridiculed for looks, size, composure, and attitude. All we are looking for is a little respect, because one day? We’ll be your boss.
