It’s been two years since the world lost this comedic genius. He was loved by millions and there is a funny thing about it. All these people who mourned the loss of this great man, never knew him on a personal level. I am one of those people. Yet, he connected with so many, we all felt we lost someone close to us. We saw him as an uncle, a father, a brother, or maybe that neighbor that everyone just loved. I was crushed when I heard about his passing. You’re shocked and in disbelief. You just can’t accept it. You won’t believe it. The night he died was a night I will always remember. It holds a place in my heart to a man that could make your bad day into something better. It was one of those crazy random happenstances that made that night into more than just a random night of drinking and having fun.
I am a writer. I am not a professional writer nor am I a great writer. I like to think that I am decent and have a good imagination with coming up with some insane stories. I don’t know where I posted it but I did speak about my past writing and my current stories. I’d look but I am far too lazy to hunt down a link on this site. Instead, I will just mention it again.
When I was a wee little lad, I had a fascination with the macabre. I loved horror movies and anything that was about zombies, werewolves, vampires, ghouls and goblins. I still enjoy this stuff today but unlike my previous stories, I drifted away from those and went to a more practical monster.
Being on vacation is such a nice thing. You get to get away from work and all the things that bog you down. Whether you work banker hours or the world of retail, which is pretty much you surrendering all weekends, both jobs come with pain and suffering. There is one perk to working and that is vacation time. Ah, yes. Vacation. You have a week away to do what you wish. Maybe you plan on taking a trip out of state. Maybe you’re going to work on that kitchen remodel you promised your wife years ago or maybe you’ll do what I did. Maybe you’ll just sit around the house and binge on Netflix. I could have worked on so many other things. I could have worked on some short stories or edited a movie I promised I’d do two weeks ago. Both great ideas but I opted to be lazy and I sat on my ass (a case of beer within reach) and watched 21 movies during my week away from work.
Since I have 21 movies to list, I am going to break it up into a few separate posts. Here are the first 6 films I watched. These aren’t reviews. I am just sharing with you the list of movies I watched. You’re welcome to share a comment if you want. Enjoy the list.
If all the world got along, I think it would be a pretty boring place. While fighting and going to war isn’t something I encourage, I’ll just rather watch manly men fight it out Jon Woo style than hug each other tightly like they are in some romantically, obscure Nicholas Sparks’ novel – Not that there is anything wrong with that. The world isn’t full of gay cowboys. This isn’t The Notebook. The world is a shitty place with everyone fending for themselves. It sucks to say that. It sucks that we’ll never all get along. Well, we will but I think that is when the Anti-Christ shows up and world peace follows. That puts a damper on the global request for everyone to love thy neighbor. If getting world peace and everyone being nice to each other starts the Apocalypse, I think war and violence is better than the end of all humanity.
You can’t like everyone. You can pretend that your happy and loving of all God’s children but deep down inside, there is someone you just don’t like. Maybe there is no reason. Maybe there are multiple reasons. Whatever the case may be, you hate someone (or if hate is too strong of word, then you strongly dislike the person). I can strongly dislike someone cause they are a hypochondriac or maybe cause they are lazy and just stupid. I can strongly dislike someone for a simpler and petty reason simply for the sheer reasoning of, “just cause”. Maybe that is a better answer than actually venting and spewing hateful words from your mouth because this person you strongly dislike cries over the must mundane things. I rather not tarnish my reputation of being an upstanding guy and not formally admit who I strong dislike.
I have yet to watch this movie. I have yet to read the books. I could take the plunge and crack open one of the books and enjoy the series but I rather not. It’s not that I don’t like reading. I do. I just don’t care to read this series. I have no interest in Harry Potter and the other members of the Hogwarts. I have only seen the trailers to the movies. I have no idea what the movie and books are about. I am going to take a stab at the books and tell you what I think the books are about. This is from a person who has never seen the movies and a guy who has never read the books.
I’ve never seen Harry Potter but I think it goes something like this…
