It’s been a week now since the Boston Marathon bombings, but I just wanted to write a short post saying that my heart goes out to all the victims.
This was an unbelievable act of ugly violence and not one individual in that marathon deserved to go through something like that. The fact that the two men responsible for the crime have now been captured (one of them killed) is little comfort, I find.
Should we feel sorry for Tiger Woods for all the ridicule he got a few years ago? Yes, he was successful in the beginning and was able to rise to the top. Then came marriage etc. Next thing you he’s trying to escape from his wife because he was caught cheating. Was he not ready to settle down? Because off all that Tiger got a lot of negative press, people were disgusted by him and sponsors walked away. He was at the bottom of the bottom. He tried to compete but he just was not as good as he used to be. Something changed him.
How many video game to movie adaptations can you say are actually good? None? Not many? Some?
It’s one thing gamers love to see is a movie based on their favorite video game. However, now a days it’s to scary and to risky as the film industry just butchers them as it hits the big screen. Everything is wrong. Almost as if it was done deliberately to just take your money. Because they know you will most likely see it. Seeing these bad movies are just witnessing one disaster after another. How much more can we take! At least now they are starting the get the super hero movies right. But what about video game movies? Are they doomed forever or will we ever see a light at the end of the tunnel of garbage? But let’s see what we’ve had to endure with.
I have developed a bad habit recently. When I come home after work, I grab a quick bite to eat and flop down on the couch and turn on my TV. I have a fleet of TV shows that I must watch before I get on with anything else. That’s about 3 hours of my precious time wasted on fictional characters. In any case, this all started when I accidentally caught an episode of Criminal Minds that airs every weekday at 6PM (now at 5PM AND 6PM which is a blessing and a curse). I immediately developed an intellectual crush on agent Reid, agent Morgan makes my brain fire electrical signals into the most inappropriate places and Garcia is just plain hilarious. Of course, that’s all superficial.
