Ah-hem

I know I promised quite some time ago that this would become a movie review site as well as political commentary.... Unfortunatly, things have come up that prevented it. First, I wrote a review of Army of Darkness and had it all ready to post here when promised. Then my desktop decided that it would be a good time to give me the Blue Screen O' Death. Permenantly. I have not been able to recover any of my files from that computer, which made things a bit more interesting for me in my classes. So, for almost a month, I had no reliable internet access that would allow me to post things to blogger. After about a month, I was able to save up enough money to buy a new laptop. Then, of course, I got back my first exam grade. 51%. Ai ya! Not good, especially if I want to graduate in December. So, school work took center stage. In fact, instead of doing this, I should be studying for my Greek Culture final tomorrow morning. I just wanted to say this in case anyone wonders where I've been. I'll get that review (or one like it) up eventually....

Change of Topic

This blog hasn't been updated in quite some time, and I apologize. A few things came up that prevented me from continuing here. First, I became extremely busy with classes, and as much as I love blogging, school simply MUST come first. Second, I've become a bit bored with constant politics, which is what this blog was. I have a bit more time on my hands now, so I'm going to resume my blogging at MikeTheLibrarian. Its not going to be a political blog anymore, however. From now on, this is mainly a review blog. I will be reviewing movies, TV-shows, books, and whatever else catches my interest. I'm still pretty conservative though, and this will undoubtedly influence my reviews. I'm also a geek with a bit of a strange sense of humor. I'll also probably post a few political items when I feel the need. Tune in tomorrow when I review one of my favorite movies, "Army of Darkness."

Damn Molemen!

It is tragic when a mental illness results in the death of another person. However, I think in this case they REALLY have to take into account his history of drug abuse. It more than likely has something to do with his actions.

English Papers

Writing English papers usually has one of two results for me. First, I come to loath the piece of work, and for a time actively wish that great harm would come to the author. The poems of William Carlos Williams are an example of this. It’s been ten years since I wrote that term paper, and I still hate the poems. Second, I come to a deeper understanding of the work, where I love it and it really becomes a part of me. Shakespeare’s “Richard III” is an example of this, although much of that comes from the fantastic Ian McKellen movie. I can’t recommend it highly enough. Sadly, as I sit here trying to bash out a paper on one of my favorites, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” it is quickly turning into the loath it category. When I’m done here, I should probably go watch the Kevin Kline movie of it… see if that helps….

Update: Paper is done at 3:30am and its pretty good. Now the only trouble is staying awake. If I fall asleep between now and when class starts at 9:15am, theres no way I'll make it. I guess I'll go watch that "A Midsummer Night's Dream" now....

Update: Watched "Star Trek: First Contact" instead. I think in my sleep deprived and addled state its even better.

What A Way To Honor Him

On Thursday the UGA newspaper "Red and Black" honors First lieutenant Noah Harris who died in Iraq. Harris was a former UGA student and Cheerleader. And how does "Red and Black" honor him? They run a political cartoon that has a ribbon that says "Support Our Gulags." Nice guys, real nice.

Geena Davis, POTUS

I just read on Drudge that Geena Davis will be playing the President of the United States on an upcomming tv series. I'm willing to bet that they make some comment about Republicans never accepting a female president. Sadly, they are right. Republicans could never even entertain the notion of a female president. The only things worse would be an African-American female president! No Republican would ever suggest that, right?
