Inception

Tonight I am watching Inception based on the reccomendation of a co-worker. We were talking about waking dreams and things like that and he said I should watch this. So I am.

Damn. Strike one. Leonardo DiCaprio is in the movie. Not a big fan of his.

Interesting concept/premise. Good execution. so far.

I like how they got him out of the dream. :)

A dream within a dream? They should be playing The Alan Parsons Project. :)

Heh ... snitches get stitches!

Ok, the concept of inception is interesting.

Can't ... walk ... away. Even with no guarantee.

Ariadne? Interesting name if you know anything about Greek mythology.

26 minutes in I am wondering if he is still in a dream state or not. It affects how you see the movie.

And she is dreaming. Cool.

I am liking it so far. Even if Leo DeCraprio is in it.

Damn this really is interesting. She can mess with my physics any day. :)

So, inception is possible just bloody difficult.

Ok, this is a bizarre chase sequence. He must be dreaming.

Once again. A dream within a dream. Three levels this time.

Still interesting.

"They come to be woken up. The dream has become their reality."

I am liking it so far at the 53 minute mark.

"I bought the airline." Hahahahaha!!!!!

I am still thinking that this might be the 4th or 5th level of a dream. Damn. I like this. :)

The dream was hijacked? Sweet!

This movie is both suspending my disbelief and holding my interest. Watch it!

Holy shit!

Limbo. Damn.

I still think he is working Saito.

A dream within a dream.

"It is like trying to remember a dream after you have woken up."

0k fight! Boo Yah!!!!!!!

"An idea is like a virus."

Damn!

WTF?!?!?

Oh yeah. Worth watching. :)

Big Trouble in Little China

Tonigh I am re-watching Big Trouble in Little China. Without any other rambling WATCH IT! It is worth watching! Did you watch it? Why not?

It starts off great, with Egg and his lawyer, and just gets better from there.

What would Jack Burton do? He would watch this movie!!!! Besides that it's all in the reflexes. :)

"Have you paid your dies Jack? Yes sir. The cheque is in the mail." 

Damn I am only 3 minutes 45 seconds in and already this movie is entertaining me to the point that I may just stop typing and enjoy it.

And I did.

"It's all in the reflexes." :)

I could be 5 minutes in or 30 it wouldn't matter. This is a great movie for so many reasons. Comedy. Drama. Action. You need to watch it. I am watching it for the umpteenth time and I know I will end up watching it again. And again. And again. :)

"Son of a bitch must pay!"

Oops. Watch it! :)

Seventh Son

Tonight I am watching Seventh Son. I have no idea why I picked it because I know nothing about it. Ok, that isn't completely true, I know the mythos around the 7th son of the 7th Son, and the Iron Maiden album about it. :) Hopefully it doesn't let me down.

It starts out ... meh ... he leaves her there. Not an auspicious beginning. And then .... ummm yeah. Not making me want to watch it much further. It better get ... better.

"This won't be an execution merely an education." heh ... who just got schooled? :) Ok. This peeks my interest a little. Just a little.

"The trick is not to spill." And long have I laboured to learn that trick. :)

Meh it is looking like the TV show Grimm, which I love, on the silver screen. So far I would rather be watching Grimm.

God damn I would love to boogie the night away with Julianne Moore. Or maybe not after she transforms. ;)

So why didn't Gregory just cover her cage in silver? Or her? Damn. Didn't think the squire would die so soon.

Still, Meh.

And now, 12 min in, we see the 7th son. Still meh so far.

Damn. Sir Gregory is such an ass I am hoping the witch wins.

Listen to your mother. Mother's know.

"Keep him safe!"
"Alas good lady, that is a vow I cannot make."
True dat!

"So what are you going to do with me apprentice?" Heh ... starting to like the movie. ;)

"When you address me address me as ..." Oh fuck off you old sot!

I am kind of enjoying the movie.

"Could be useful. Not the passing out part but the visions." heh ... good line.

Damn. Only 27 minutes have passed?

"Show me what you are!"

I am 33 minutes in and am still having a hard time giving a fuck about this movie.

"Missed." Ok better.

So, he doesn't have a lot of time to teach him. I get it now.

"That is disgusting. What does that kill?"
"Cowardice."
Heh.

Ok. Alice makes it more interesting.

So it is only 42 minutes in and it is still meh.

"If it is anything less than O'Bama we are on our way." Really? Did I hear that right?

Meh!

So he turns her. Meh. Not a horrible movie. Not a good one. Watch it if you want to.




What the ... interruption?!?!?!?

I hate pop ups. They are usually annoying ads. Or stupid warnings. Facebook uses them too. Today, as I was sharing a video post something from Facebook popped up.


Why the fuck do I need a pop up from Facebook about my setting? I set the fucking thing. I know what it is. I know what it is set for. Of course it hasn't been fucking changed recently because it is set to what I want. Surely to god Facebook can find something better to pester people about.

So I choose the skip option and what do I get?


Another fucking pop up just to let me know that they left the setting at what I set it for. Considering I never changed it that is neither a surprise or pop-up worthy. Thank you so much for allowing me to leave it on the setting I chose.

If you want to do something constructive actually allow people to tell you what they think/want in their own words when you ask for input.

Facebook you continue to fail to impress me. However, you do provide fodder. :)

"Snopesing" things.

I almost didn't make my post about the quote some morons wrongly attribute to Wilfred Laurier. While Snopes is a great tool I find that a lot of the people using it can come off as tools.

There is a segment of the population that seems to get off on proving people wrong. They will use Snopes on just about anything people post prove them wrong. In some cases it is deserved, in others maybe not so much.

I have had it done to me. What made it even more pathetic is that it was the ONLY thing the person had commented on (on my Facebook page) in over 5 years. That is kind of pathetic in and of itself and served to let me know it was time to prune the "friendship" tree.

Kind of like the Facebook friend who got all huffy and had to answer a meme I shared about money being the root of all evil. He started off sanely enough, trying to claim it wasn't in the bible. Then, when called on it by another friend of mine (let's call him Hatamoto), went to troll level insanity pretty quickly. He tried parsing words by saying it was not said exactly that way. Then lit into how much of a danger Hatamoto must be to others. Nonsense like that. Hatamoto handled it well and pretty much trolled the troll until he gave up. It was great to read. :)

But I digress.

It is kind of like only tearing someone apart for their grammar or spelling. I have done it in the past, odds are I will do it again in the future, but when I do it I KNOW I am doing it just to be a dick and annoy the person. I actually could have pointed out the poor spelling skills of some of those  who came out in support of Mr. East in the Laurier quote post. But I didn't because there was more than enough stupidity to address. This is what I feel a lot of those who just have to use snopes to show someone how wrong they are remind me of.

Oops digressing again.

Damn. My train of thought got derailed. Snopes good but can be used for evil. Remember what Ben Parker said "With great power comes great responsibility." :)

What the ... Laurierism?!?!?!?

A friend shared something on Facebook from some mook named Rob East. Actually it was something he shared, of something a friend shared, that a friend shared, that Rob East made available. Oh what a tangled web we weave ... but I am getting ahead of myself.

Mr. East posted a photo of a quote to Wilfred Laurier in 2015. All it took was reading the first sentence, Mr. East's opening and only comment, for me to call bullshit on it. He wrote;

"I AM CANADIAN ... maybe we should remember the words of our founding fathers." 

Canadian? Really? Ok, we do have our share of fuckwits in Canada and a lot of morons. He could be Canadian and a prime example of either of those. Or maybe he is an American.

Founding fathers?!?!?!? Really?!?!? THAT sounds like something an American would say. Not a Canadian. In Canada we have The Fathers of Confederation. NOT founding fathers. On top of that, Laurier was NOT one of them.

He then went on to post the statement attributed to Laurier. A statement which had a huge glaring error in it. Can you pick out the error?



Did you see it? In the last half of the statement? Yeah, this one.

"We have room for only one flag, the Canadian flag."

BAARRRRRRRRRRP! Canadian Flag? In 1907? The Canadian flag was NOT adopted until 1965! Until then we flew the Union Jack aka The United Kingdom Union Flag.

The whole statement sounds more like something an American would say. Thanks to the miracle of the internet and a handy site called Snopes it was easy to find out who this statement belongs to. In it's original form and not what Mr. East bastardized it into (or someone else did and Mr. East didn't bother attributing it to them) it was made by ... Theodore Roosevelt. A search on Snopes using Laurier showed that.

A google search then showed that this piece of BS, the quote not Mr. East, has been around the internet since at least 2012. Maybe longer. Which means Mr. East was just passing on the BS without showing where he found it.

Good try Mr. East but I smelled the bullshit from the start.

Then you have the twat waffles in the comment section.


The fucking moron who said she AGREES "n"  does so without prejudice. Which is codespeak for I am a fucking racist.  Nice try asshole.

Or The last commenter who really doesn't know anything about Laurier. She was right he is a Canadian through and through but if she believes this piece of tripe was really him she has NO idea what a Canadian is, let alone who Laurier was.

Morons do seem to attract morons.

What the ... resemblance?!?!?

Say it isn't so fucktardbook ... I mean Facebook. Your trending really finds it necessary to tell me that there is a resemblance between Arnold Schwarzenegger and his son by the maid?



Wow. I would never have thought a father and son could resemble each other.

Is there a special rule for a son who is born from someone who is not the wife of the person?

Fucktards.

Seriously Facebook. Fuck off with your trending bullshit.
