What the ... trending bs?!?!?!/

So ... I logged onto Facebook to be told about something on Instagram.

Seriously ... I need Facebook to tell me about what is trending on another Social Media site? Oh ... wait ... I get it. Facebook is THAT hard up that it is leeching off of what other Social Media sites have trending. Now it makes sense.


Fuck off Facebook. If I wanted to know about anyone on Instagram I would be actually following them on Instagram.

You, Facebook, are really grasping.

Anonymous Caller Rejection

How unfortunate for Eastlink customers.

Rogers offers a service called Anonymous Caller Rejection for home phones. It gives anonymous callers the option of showing their number or not being able to reach you. They even make it simple to use. Dial *77, wait for the busy signal, hang up. Voila it is activated.

Eastlink doesn't offer anything like that. Their Customer Service people can't even tell you if they plan to offer something like that.

Considering that telemarketers are now blocking their numbers to show up as private/anonymous numbers this feature is fantastic. Which makes it frustrating to be an Eastlink customer.

When I talked to their Customer Service about this the first thing they said was "Yes, we have a service."

I said: "I hope you don't mean *60 because that  only works if the number is showing."

He replied: "No I think it is *67 ... ohhh .... no it is *60."

"Yeah, As I said, that is useless if they block their number."

"You could use call trace to ..."

I cut him off "Call Trace is ONLY useful if the Police actually want to go after a telemarketer. Even then you usually have to trace a call 4 or more times before they will do anything. IF they actually want to try and go after them."

"That is true."

"This is unfortunate. It might be time to think about switching. Have a nice day." And I hung up..

Jurassic World

The movie tonight is Jurassic World.

A friend gave me a copy of a CAM version he got. Considering it was recorded in a theater it is DAMN good

Strangely enough, it was recorded in a theater in South Korea. How do I know? It has Korean Subtitles. My Korean is pretty weak after so long away but I actually found it interesting to try and follow along. :) I will be saving this copy.

It starts off mundane enough. Ok Parents aren't going.

Kids that are related to someone in the park will be the focus. Homages are paid to Jurassic Park and Hammond.

It is interesting so far. The whole idea of marketing a hybrid to a company.

The new version of Hammond, Masrani, thinks he can fly a helicopter. Heh.

Helicopter pilot is throwing up.
Aunt "Are you ok?" 
Masrani "He is just being dramatic." 
Well played. :)

Damn Pratt has the raptors well trained.

I am liking it so far. Looking forward to the field test.

"Maybe progress should lose for once." Word.

25 minutes in and I am definitely being entertained.

God damn, I never would have thought it but the Hangul is making me nostalgic about my time in South Korea.

Ok, back to the movie, Pratt's character, Owen, and the aunt, Claire, almost have a thing going. Will it evolve? Will she make him instrumental in saving the new kids on the block ... I mean in the park? Only time will tell.

"Oh Shit!" Yeah. Damn. The hybrid is on the loose!

God damn! It is on the move. Makes T-Rex look like a pussy!

"It's in the cage! It's in there with you!"

Oh yeah, he's dead.

And because Pratt sliced the gas line ... he's alive. Damn. I have to remember that one for the zombie apocalypse. Better than zombie blood and guts.

Ok, so the asshole who wants to weaponize the raptors is an asshole. What an epiphany. Hope the raptors eat him. Heh ... they probably will. :)

Easy to see where Pratt and the raptors will be heading.

Some tough brotherly love on the topic of divorce.

Really? Kayaking through dino areas. Fucktards. Where is the new chaos theory exponent?!?!?

Here comes some food. I mean an attack team with non-lethal weapons.

So much for the tracker. So much for the attack team.

Damn she is badass. I bet you regret making her now. If you were smart you would. But you can't see beyond the error of your ways can you?

"Evacuate the island." Too late.

Owen: "You made a genetic hybrid. Raised it in captivity. She is seeing all of this for the first time. She does not even know what she is. She will kill everything that moves."

Ok, so, they used DNA to create a prehistoric douchebag.

Masrani: You think the animal is contemplating its own existence?

Owen: "She is learning where she fits on the food chain and I'm not sure you want her to figure that out."


"All of this exists because of me. If I don't inovate someone else will." You are such a good little soldier aren't you. Don't question. Just do. My father fought your kind back in the day ... what were you called then ... oh yeah Nazis. I was just following orders. Fucktard.

And now she worries about her nephews. Wow she is so ignorant about her nephews.

I am still not liking Claire. Owen is great.

The rescue is on.

So the genetically created dinosaur is hunting for sport. Like the fucking piece of shit dentist that killed Cecil the Lion. What a piece of shit.


And I got so wrapped up in watching the movie that I forgot to type anything. Speaks volumes about the movie.

Is that the old Jurassic Park main building?!?!? Nice homage.

Very nice homage.

Ok, this movie wants me to watch the Jurassic Park movies and THEN this movie again. Well done. :)

Moral of the story ... always keep your weapon on you. And be able to run. RUN!

Another homage.

"Its like the fox in the hen house." Someone really needs to kill that piece of shit. Soon.

"That's a first." No second for you fodder.

Bwahahahahaha .... an air raid siren!!!

Ok, Claire and Pratt are definitely going to be knocking boots.

"You are all relieved. There is a new team on the ground." A team of cunts led by a cunt. Ok Pratt is leading them, not the Ingen cunt.

She looks fine all sweaty.

"I am their alpha." Heh.

"We'll always be brothers."

"No matter what!" Word!

"Your boyfriend is a badass." Heh.

Go Raptors!!!

"Watch your 6! Raptors got a new alpha." And carnage ensues.


I like this movie. :)


"Please no, don't tell your mom about that ever." Heh :)

Oh fuck me. The friend zone.

It is kind of funny. InGen is still the villain but managed to make enough inroads to really fuck things up.

I can't believe the InGen fucktard is still alive. Come on Blue. Kill the piece of shit!

Go Blue! Go Blue!

God damn!

And double god damn. Bryce, I mean Claire, looks good. :)

Get some more teeth!

"Why did you have to make it personal?" Bwahahahahaha!

And that is a lot more teeth!

DAMN!!!! I guess the fishy one was hungry!

Heh. She had to warn them that their parents were coming.

Ouch. I think her sister is pissed.

"So what do we do now?"
"Probably stick together. For survival."

Good movie. Watch it!

What the ... seriously?!?!?!?

A friend asked we what I thought about the Remembrance Day controversy the Chronicly Horrible, I mean the Chronicle Herald, was going on about. Not having paid attention to the news I had no idea what he was talking about.

It turns out that during the Remembrance Day ceremonies taking place the Halifax Regional Police deployed armed members. My first thought was ... great. They made sure that if anything happened the right people were there to respond. What controversy?

Well, having armed police ready for anything has angered some people. What the fuck?!?!? Seriously?

“If ever there is a day to put the guns and these costumes away and say we are not afraid, this is it,” John Wesley Chisholm posted on Facebook, along with a photo of two officers in tactical gear.

Others commented on Twitter, asking the force why the more imposing gear was necessary during a public event and on a day for honouring veterans and those killed in combat.

I guess I just had a nightmare last year when a gunman murdered Nathan Cirillo and shot up Parliament. If that had happened no reasonable person would wonder why the HRP had officers ready for anything on Remembrance Day. Oh wait it did happen. And they were ready. Lest We Forget.

The main mook behind the complaints seems to be Stoo Metz.

Stoo Metz posted, “Seeing guns like this in the hands of @HfxRegPolice scares me more then the terrorists. #Halifax”

“It doesn’t make me feel safe,” Metz, a Halifax photographer, tells Yahoo Canada News. “It makes me worried we have less and less freedom because the guards now have bigger guns.“

What worries me is that the media panders to assholes like Metz, who is probably just looking to make a name for himself and sell more photos.

Seeing guns in the hands of the police scares you more than terrorists? Fuck off cunt.

Did the "guards" inconvenience you in any way? No.

Did they stop you from taking photos to sell?  No.

Did they infinge on your freedoms? No.

They were there to make sure no piece of shit hurt anyone.

Did you thank them? No. Instead you vilified them.

Fuck you Stoo Metz and all the assholes who posted shit in support of you.

What the ... comedian?!?!?

So ... a "comedian", Scott Vrooman, thought it would be funny to pretend to be a Senator-elect and get into Parliament. He was videoing himself on his phone.

“I thought, I’ll wing it. It’s improv comedy,” he said in an interview. “But improv-ing with the police is not the best idea.”

No. Really?  How about improving with Police at a place that was shot up by a gunman just over a year ago? After said gunman murdered a Soldier? Time and place fucktard. Time and place.

It reminded me of a moron we dealt with one night at work. I was talking with our Supervisor and two other guards at the front entrance when this mook approached us and started "improving". He looked at us and said;

"Wouldn't it be funny if I robbed this place?"

I looked at him as if he was a drooling moron and said "No."

He replied "Yeah. It would be funny. I know the owners (He didn't.) so I would give the money back. I wouldn't be charged. It would be funny."

We all looked at him as if he had 3 heads and I said "No. It wouldn't be funny."

He went on "It would be funny. I know them (the owners) so I wouldn't be charged. Hilarious!"

We all gave him dirty looks and he went outside for a smoke. I shook my head, looked at my Supervisor and said "Would it be funny if I yelled fire in a theatre? Hijack or bomb in an airport?"

The general consensus was that this guy was mental or just didn't get that his sense of humour wasn't funny. He didn't appear to be showing any signs of intoxication, He was just a douchebag.

Said douchebag finished his smoke, came back in, and picked up where he left off.

"It would be funny!" he said "I know the owners so the cops couldn't charge me."

We just shook our heads and looked at him as if he were mental.

"You just don't get it!" he said "I know them. I gave the money back. The cops can't touch me. It is hilarious."

"Would you say hijack on a plane?" I asked.

He had no answer.

"It just isn't funny." I said. "There is a time and place."

He threw his arms up and walked off in disgust. Mind you, he didn't go far. He went and sat at a table about 10 feet from us. Then he started staring at us, throwing dirty looks at our Supervisor.

Our supervisor's reaction? Call Surveillance and let them know we were throwing someone out. and we did. Fucking moron.

It also reminds me of the assholes who pull  "social experiments". Have people act like assholes to get a reaction from others and cry "social experiment" when it bites you in the ass.

But I digress.

In the article it said "In an odd bit of timing, he was worried about getting arrested because he was planning to risk arrest later that day at a climate change protest outside 24 Sussex Drive."

So, he didn't want to get arrested for public mischief because he planned on risking arrest in a protest later that day. Wow. What great reasoning. I believe he is a comedian because his reasoning is so hilarious.

The police politely talked to him and warned him about what he was doing. Another officer with a rifle approached and watched while he was talked to. An officer who is so armed because of what happened last year with a gunman.

Vrooman said: “I just felt like that was totally unnecessary and creepy. Because they knew at that point I was no threat, that I was a comedian,” 

Yes. They knew you were no threat and a comedian because ... you told them that. Why the fuck would they think you might not be? Fucktard, He felt is was unnecessary and creepy? How the fuck do you think the RCMP officers felt when some moron tried pretending to be a senator-elect and get into Parliament?

There reaction IS necessary because there are assholes out there who shoot places up and murder people. While Vrooman isn't one of those assholes he does seem to be another variety of asshole.

Vrooman is upset that his humour back fired. Was he shot? No. Arrested? No. Tasered? No. Yelled at? No. Did an RCMP officer hurt his feelings by telling him he could be charged with Public Mischief? Yes. Poor muffin.

Get over yourself.

The Amityville Horror

It is Halloween night and after handing out candy to the kiddies I am

watching the original Amityville Horror.

19 minutes in. The real estate agent sold them. The priest has fled.

Margot Kidder is in pigtails. SHWIIIIIINNNNNNGGGG! Damn she looks good.

Even better in pigtails.

So, WWID? What would I do? Flee like the priest? No. I would do Margot

Kidder. Damn that pigtail look.

Seriously though, DAMN! :) Flee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If I heard a disembodied voice tell me to get out I would hope I had enough sense to get the hell out. After doing Margot Kidder. :)

The story is good and the signs are subtle. He turns to the dark side.

Evil shit starts happening slowly.

The basement. Damn. The basement.

Margot Kidder doing ballet in her undies. Damn.

I hope they realize the ghosts are watching them fuck. Or at least we are.

Scarily enough this isn't what I remember of the movie. I remember the evil horror shit.

This could be called the Flannel Family moves in to a hautned house. Damn! Kidder still has one legging on.

God damn that cat!

And the wood chopping starts.

God damn ... that skirt. If you don't put the axe down and take her right now you have to be possessed!

George, you are possessed. Seriously though, if you think those 2 bags are a weeks worth of groeeries you are starving.

The build ups to all out batshit haunting is subtle. I like that.

Hmmm ... so a demon possessed house keeps religous people away? Hmmm ... bye bye Jehovah Witnesses?

George ... let her warm you up. Damn! You possessed.

"There was a presence in the house." Damn!

When he was ordered to sit teh Priest should have told the "superior" priest to fuck off.

Damn. It was a good watch when I first saw it and it still is.

I hate flies!

The orange upper lights are evil. EVIL!

Kill Jodie!

Fuck the basement.


The Last Night!

Oh yeah. Get the fuck out!

Watch this!

A friend of mine re-facebooked, hey if retweeted is a word so is re-Facebooked, an image.

To the first part I say ... you are a fucking Canadian (the friend who re-Facebooked this) not an American. We DO have gun laws. The point of gun laws is to KEEP THEM OUT OF THE HANDS of the "few lunatics". Not just the criminals, which the quote totally ignores, but the lunatics. The lunatics in the US who GET GUNS because the laws, such as they are, don't stop them. Would you rather have a "7 Day Wait of Shame" or a lunatic getting a gun? Then pass some fucking gun control laws  to keep them out of the hands of the few crazies and stop being a cunt.

As to point 2 ... oh please fuck off and stop trying to pit the sort of haves against the have nots. Once again ... YOU, the re-Facebooker, are a Canadian. We don't have Social Security. We have "Employment Insurance" (because the Cons think Unemployment Insurance is too negative) and Welfare. One is meant to help the disadvantaged the other to help seasonal workers. BOTH have been targeted by the Conservative government. Are you against both or just one? Because both are abused by SOME of the users. Oh wait, some ... a few ... doesn't that hurt your first argument? Should you blame ALL of those who use it because of the few who abuse it?

Yeah, I thought so. That post told me a lot about you.

Fuck off.

Facebook wants my input ... again.

What a coinkydink. I mention that craptastic Facebook survey and it popped up on my Facebook page AGAIN.

Give feedback eh? Now to me that means I will be able to tell them what I think about Facebook and how I think they can improve it. But to Facebook it just means ...

... their craptastic survey. They will show you 10 sets of images and you choose the 1 you would prefer to see on your news feed. News feed being their way of saying Facebook page. What news "stories" do you get shown?

They take "stories" friends have posted that appeared on your page and ask you to either choose between the two or hit can't decide. Wow. What a great measure this is"news" I would want to see. What a great way to give input!


And as I mentioned in my previous post, you will get one image showing up multiple times.

The cat video "news story" showed up FOUR FUCKING TIMES. I didn't choose it the first or second time so why keep bringing it back?!?!?

You really suck at getting feedback from people Facebook. Stop pretending you really care what people think and just go about doing whatever like you used to. If you aren't prepared to REALLY accept input from people just fuck off.

What is trending on Facebook today? 1

There is still no option to get rid of the trending BS that Facebook forces on us. Mind you there is a good side to it, if I don't want to have the score of a game ruined for me it makes me stay away from Facebook. Seriously though, they pick the stupidest fucking trending topics to force on me. Like todays shit.

Why would I give a shit if Jim Carrey's ex-gf was married to another man when she died? Considering that Jim Carrey is single and she is his ex I would have been surprised, if I cared, to hear that she was married to him. Fucktards.

I don't even care that his ex-gf died. Call me cold but I don't know him. I didn't know her. Or her family. So why would her death have any impact on me or hold any interest unless I am some morbid fucking death fetish kind of person?

Burger Kings black whopper turns your shit green. Once again, don't give a fuck. Hell, I don't even eat at Burger King now that I live in a country with Wendy's. At least this "trending" is a tad interesting for a laugh.

Even the "trending" that holds some interest for me is fucked up. The blurb is talking about what happened a couple of days ago. It doesn't mention the current news, that Kassian is suspended without pay and is on level 2 of the NHL's substance abuse program.

No new. Shit news. Old news. Nothing new when talking about the BS trending that Facebook forces on people.

Fuck you Facebook.

You REALLY want to know what I have to say? Don't put out some piece of shit "survey" that doesn't actually allow me to tell you what I think. Give me a place to leave a comment that will be at least read by someone at the company. Hell, even if it isn't read it would make a lot of people think you actually did care what they thought.

Like I said, fuck you Facebook.

The Babadook

Tonight I am watching the Babadook, another recommended movie.

Intense opening. Then meh.

Wow. What an inventive brat. I guess she never heard of the benefits of a wooden spoon.

And the brat is in trouble. No, he needs a full time monitor!

Yes, his name is Samuel. But he is a boy AND he needs help. Mom, you aren't helping.

Yeah, your kid jumping and yelling about smashing "his" head is no sign that he needs help.

Holy shit that kid is a screamer ... and seriously in need of some discipline. And I am not even 10 minutes into the movie. Dunno if I will be able to watch this.

Interesting book. Maybe letting the brat pick a book wasn't such a good idea.

Yeah, I see where this is going, I just don't care. Samuel just isn't that sympathetic. Neither is the mother.

Bwahahahahahaha!!!!!! OK, the vibrator is making me chuckle. Yet I am still not caring about the characters. I just keep wondering how the brat is going to interrupt her orgasm. And that is how. Damn! OK, now I feel some sympathy for the mother. Orgasmus Interruptus.

And she went into the basement. Didn't she see Scream?

OK. The kid is seriously fucked in the head.

24 minutes in. Still not caring. Boredom is setting in.

Even if the Babadook is setting the kid up ... the kid is still seriously fucked up. Or she is. Or they both are. Or ... fuck I just don't care.

No Amelia, it is true. You can't cope.

Damn. Samuel is going all Damian.

Yet still all I see is a fucking brat that has been allowed to act out his whole life and is probably fucked in the head.

Even if they finally introduce the Babadook as being "real" Samuel has been set up as just a brat too much to find any sympathy for him.

"Why don't people like me?" At least it is a kid asking. I once had a grown ass adult co-worker who went around asking people "Why don't people like me?" One night he asked me if I find him annoying. I said yes. He didn't know how to react. But I digress ... because this movie is boring me.

35 minutes in. I know the Babadook will eventually be revealed and the kid was the only one who saw it. But I just can't find any sympathy for him or his mom.

36 minutes in. knock knock knock. No one there. Babadook arrives. Book on the door step. All torn up inside. Yet I still don't care.

OK, the book is actually interesting. More interesting than the movie. Showing her deterioration. Maybe it is all about her descent into madness and not his.

She burns the book. And now she gets phone calls from Babadook.

OK, if the movie is about Amelia's descent into madness it makes more sense. Yet I still find it hard to care.

Had to stop watching 50 minutes in. I want my time back.

OK started watching it again. The book was prophetic. Damn. Kid is taking her to town! That will teach you to be psychotic or possessed.

OK, now it is like Home Alone meets The Exorcist and ... I am starting to find some interest. :)

OK, I was wrong. I have some sympathy for the kid now. The movie took a twist I didn't expect. Definitely an Exorcist overtone now.

I am starting to like it ... a bit. Holy fuck it was slow getting to this point. If the lead in were more interesting, yet still slow, it would have been better. It pretty much made me want to stop watching.

OK, the conversation with social workers was funny.

And Amelia and Samuel have bonded over the Babadook that is in their basement. That mom brings worms to.

The end. Thank fuck. Such potential wasted.

And I used OK way too much.

The Bell Witch Haunting

Tonight I was watching The Bell Witch Haunting. I say was because holy shit this is horrible.

I am 25 minutes in and I have skipped shit to get this far in. Is it a teen angst ridden T&A movie? A horror movie? Or just a piece of shite?

I only started watching it because I have read about the Bell Witch and the history around what happened.

Stupidly enough the only reason I have hit play again is because I am hoping it will get interesting. If it doesn't within 10 minutes I will probably stop watching.

Good god I don't think I can even go another 5 minutes ... oh what is this? Meh ... hard to care.

Fuck me. I can't even make 30 minutes. This movie just plain old sucks. Even T&A and panty clad ass can't save it.

Do yourself a favour and run, do not walk, RUN away from this movie.

Piece of shite.

What the ... back story?!?!?

This could also be titled "Am I an asshole?"

I was on my way to the beach for a walk with my dog. I saw a car stopped with the engine hood up by a stop sign where I normally turn. I stopped and asked if they need a phone to call for help.

The guy started going on about how the clutched was fucked yadda yadda.

I repeated so you don't need a phone or help?

"No. I don't need a phone or help." he said. "The clutch yadda yadda ..."

I cut him off and said "Ok, you don't need help. I don't need your life story. Have a good day." And drove off.

Facebook wants my input!

I logged on to Facebook today to see a message on the right hand side of the page from Facebook. According to the message they want they want to know what I think. Of course this meant that other than to answer their stupid questions in 1 of the 3 ways they allow was the ONLY way to give your view.

The questions? You get 2 images of posts that have actually appeared on your Facebook page and have to choose one or the other or you can select "Can't Decide". Wow, how could that go wrong? Well, I had the same images show up AGAINST each other several times. The only thing changed was their position on the right or the left. I had one image show up THREE times to be judged against other images.

Unfortunately, there was no way to tell Facebook through this piece of shit what I actually felt about anything Facebook related. Facebook actually failed to find out what I think about anything by this craptastic exercise in finding out what users think.

Yet another Facebook fail.

If you really want to know what I think about anything how about giving me the means to type out what I think and send it to someone who works for Facebook?

Telemarketers for Canadian Police Association

Here is a copy of an email I just sent to the Canadian Police Association.


This morning a woman called from 1-902-709-8749 looking for me. She said she was calling on behalf of the Canadian Police Association. I was out and my Mother answered the phone.

The woman was informed that I wasn't home and started her spiel on my Mother. My mother is 83 and on a fixed income and advised her that she can't afford anything extra. At this point YOUR REPRESENTATIVE became very insulting. She started insisting that my Mother had contributed in the past and started citing past donations that I HAD MADE. My mother found YOUR REPRESENTATIVES tone and words to be very demeaning. At one point the woman made a snarky comment along the lines of "oh, your son must have to handle your money for you". The call ended soon after that with the woman saying she would call back later today for me.  God damn I hope she calls because I have got some words for her to hear and then I will be blocking your number.

I tried call 1-902-709-8749 to have a chat with someone there but it doesn't allow for incoming calls. Must be nice.

So here is where I stand right now. I have donated money to the Association every year for at least the last 4 years. I was happy to because I knew it was going to a good cause. Now, after my Mother got treated like that, I won't be donating again for at least a year. You can take me off your call list. I will find another cause or donate to anti-bullying through the RCMP. In a year, if I haven’t been bothered with calls, I will review my decision.

When these people, telemarketers, call people they are representing you. When they are insulting to people it reflects on your Association. You REALLY need to choose better people to represent you.

Sincerely, and still pissed off,

P.S. I don’t want an apology, especially from the woman who acted this way. A forced apology means nothing. Actions speak louder. If my request is honoured I may just start donating again in a year.
Fucking telemarketers calling for Charities. It makes me wonder just how much of my donations the CPA was actually getting.

What the ... Spoofer?!?!?

I feel sorry for the person that really owns and uses 1-902-435-5731. Some asshole is spoofing it as their number to make badly thought out scam calls from.

I had a call from that number tonight info and because it seemed local I answered it. What I got was a recorded spiel about them calling for Air Canada (fuck off asshole) with a great deal for me. You had the choice of hitting 1 for more of their craptastic bullshit or 2 to be put on their do not call list. More BS from scammers.

I hit 1 to shout at someone. I mean I hit 1 to see what would happen.

Someone with a horrible East Indian accent immediately started pushing their scam. They understood enough English to hang up after my 3rd fuck off. Fucking morons.

When I traced the number online it showed up as a real number here. Damn I feel sorry for that person. They must get a lot of hate calls because of the assholes spoofing them.

Fucking scamming assholes. Next time they call I am going to play with them. :)

Star Trek 2: Reboot Boogaloo.

I watched the reboot of Star Trek for the first time since it came out in 2009. I saw it in a theatre in South Korea then. It was a good action movie, unfortunately, I was just so tired of reboots then that I wished they did something original. That tainted my enjoyment of it. If I hadn't seen all the Star Trek stuff before it I probably would have enjoyed it But I had. And it tried to be original but wasn't yet was. I would have preferred they just started off with new people and a new idea. so I didn't like it ... then.

I watched it on Showcase last week and saw it in a new light, 6 years later. I judged it on it's own merits and liked it. This time I was able to hold back my distaste for reboots and watch it.

Now I am watching the 2nd movie in the reboot series. It starts off right. Kirk ignoring the Prime Directive and Spock wanting to abide by it. :)

Once again my distaste for reboots started rearing its ugly head. Or noble head depending on how much you like reboots. They did the reboot shit in the first movie. They set a new path. Why bother rebooting more stuff? Take a new direction.

Yet, I am still enjoying the movie. :)

Kirk breaks the Prime Directive. Nothing new. He gets sent back to Starfleet Academy? Something new.

I am almost 20 minutes into the movie but I find my old prejudices about reboots coming out. WTF? There goes London! What?!?!?

Kirk drinking whiskey and listening to the blues? I can relate to that. :) Feeling better about the movie.

Interesting twist. Kirk back as 1st Officer.

"Where I come from if someone saves you don't stab them in the back." Well said.

And when assembled Kirk is right yet again. :)

Damn Pike is all kinds of fucked up. Much like the original show.

No Spock don't do it. Do it. Don't do it. Do it. Fuck, you did it.

Ok Pike is more fucked up than the original.

Interesting turn of events but it is still just a reboot of Kirk vs Khan.

God damn! Section 31!!!!

The crew interaction is damn good. And Wallis (or Wallace) is the next Kirk Conquest and betrayal.

Damn he accepted Scott's resignation!!!???

I am really liking this ... reboot. Damn!?!?!?

"Ears burning?" Heh.

Put on a red shirt? Fuck! That is consigning Chekov to death! A red shirt. Damn! It is a reboot so they could kill him off. Will they?!?!?

Ok, hot blonde Science Officer Kirk wants to shtup is definitely Section 31. And up to no good.

Go get her Spock! Dr. Marcus?!?!? Wait ... rebooooooooooooot!
Heh heh heh ... new Chekov. :)

New Sulu is good but damn George Takei is better!!!!!!!

Is Kirk picking off Section 31 people?

"Mr. Sulu. Remind me to never piss you off." HAHAHAHAHA!!!

The chase scene reminds me of the Falcon in Star Wars. DAMN!!!

Go Uhuru!!!!

No one wants the wrath of Uhuru! Not even the Klingons! Ok didn't see that coming.

Or that. Or the helo sort of rappeling thing.

Spock lied!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Quite the surrender.

I like the Spock-Uhuru thing. :)

23174611 ... I am waiting.

"I can give you 72 and they are aboard your ship." Damn!

"Are you out of your corn fed mind?" Heh :)

"I once performed a C-section on a pregnant Gorn." HAHAHAHAH!!!!

Go Jim Go!!!!!!!!!


What the reverse!?!?!?

Oh yeah ... Spock is pissed! KHANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

God damn what a twist!!!!!

I like it!!!!

What the ... singer?!?!?!?

Holy shit. Both are horrendus on so many levels. But which is worse?

Ken Lee is pretty fucking bad but Tuts My Barreh spent money on it and could have spent more to be better. It is hard to say which is worse. Hell, both fucking haunt me.

It Follows

Tonight is a Port night and I am watching It Follows.

It opens with ... bitch running away from anything in heels is just stupid ... a woman running away from something. Ditch the heels and pick up some speed! But I digress.

So she runs back into the house she ran out of and runs back out and into her car. I am starting to feel bored already.

Sitting at the beach with her car lights ... holy shit that is one contorted corpse!

And now on to the main character.

"How cool would it be to have your whole life ahead of you." Nice.

Sex in a car to strapped out of it in a chair. Strange.

So he fucked her and this thing that has been following him will now follow her. The title makes sense all of a sudden.

"Sleep with someone as soon as you can. If it kills you it will come after me." Damn. Self serving and still ... damn.

And she starts seeing things ... or people.

Interesting premise.

Damn. This isn't just some fucked up game.

It has me watching. It has me thinking. It has me engaged in the movie.


So she fucked someone else ... who lives across the street. And it is after him. Which means it will then come for her.

And it does.

Really? It bleeds?

And she passes it on ... and he looks for a hooker. :)

Not bad. It makes you think and is worth a watch.

Fucking mooks!!!!!

I am so fucking angry right now. I had to hug my dog and stop crying I am so angry. And I couldn't stop crying.

Some pieces of shit in Ireland couldn't get a pound to take their dog so they shot him in the face, blinding him, to get rid of him. Jesus H fucking Christ. Let him loose to run wild like the assholes I knew in Cape Breton. Blinding him? Fuck.

I would take him in NOW if I could.

I would fucking castrate the assholes with a spoon if I could.

But I can't stop crying.


And they wonder why I don't like people.

People are fucking mooks in the truest sense of the word.

I have to stop typing and hug my dog again.

Fucking mooks.


Tonight I am watching Saw. It was recommended by 2 friends. I thought it was just your basic slasher flick but I was wrong. So wrong.

There is a lot more depth  to it. A serial killer is killing off people who prove they are unworthy to live. Or rather who are ungrateful to be alive.

It starts off with 2 men chained in a room. I knew what the hacksaws were meant for right off the bat. It was pretty obvious. Or was it? :)

I liked this movie a lot. It made me think. It made me guess. It made me watch. It made me focus and not type. It made me rewatch to see what I missed. Not a lot of movies do that.

It is REALLY worth watching. Dunno about the rest of the Saw movies but the first is damn good.

Kingsman: The Secret Service

Tonight I am sipping 40 Creek and watching Kingsman: The Secret Service. Off the bat I can't remember if it is an action movie or a comedy. Or an actomedy a la Get Smart.

Nice opening. A ghetto blaster in 97. I used to own a blaster that looked like that ... in the 80's. :)

Interesting start to the movie. The sacrifice for Queen and Country.

Ah ... the kid is a legacy.

And now back to the future which is the present.

Nice action scene. And there is Scotch. Mmmmm. 1962 Dalmore. It would be a pity to spill any. :) Ok ... this is all kinds of fucked up. But it works. Sort of. Kind of. Maybe. Yeah, it does because Samuel L "Mother Fucking" Jackson is in the movie!

One of the things I love about Samuel L. Jackson is that he isn't afraid to take on the role of a bad guy.

Ok, back to the movie. 11:51 in and it is interesting. The ground work has been set. You know the kid is going to be the next Kingsman. The next Lancelot.

The whole Knights of the Round Table is fitting for the Secret Service.

The reverse car chase is pretty good. The end of it was predictable. I wouldn't be surprised to find out that he was put into the situation to get him to join. A la Remo Williams.

Just because the father is a good man doesn't mean the son is or will be. But he will be given a chance. Heh ... always someone else's fault. That is pretty much people today.

"Manners maketh man." I like that. I know what it means. :) Damn. Nice fight scene.

Iggy Azalea made it into the movie?!?!? Damn.

Interesting way they got the funding. Makes sense.

Not enough violence yet. Some great actions scenes but I am in the mood for violence. :) Ok now the race to be the net Lancelot begins. I expect the violence to arrive soon.

Every time they show Samuel L Jackson's character I just refuse to hear the lisp. It makes him more serious. :)

Damn. That is some serious weeding out process. I like it.

OK, 40 minutes in and I am liking this movie.

And there is Eggsies (sp?) reason to thrive.

And the lead in is becoming tiresome.

Still ignoring ... or trying to ... Jackson's lisp. It is easier not to take his character seriously.

Thank you for such a ... happy meal. :)

Ok the McDonalds shit is over the top. That is just too cruel! ;)

Eggy needs to throw the fucking hat away.

"Being a gentleman has nothing to do with ones birth. Being a gentleman is something one learns." Well said. Not enough gentlemen in the world today.

True nobility is being superior to your former self. Once again well said.

As in locked up. Yeah, I have trouble understanding him too.

I am glad I am wrong but ... about the dog ... yeah shoot him. Ok I wasn't wrong ... at the moment. Fuck it. Shoot them all. If he doesn't fix it .. fuck.

Merica! Fuck yeah! Ok too facetious. But it is what it is. ;)

This is mine ... I will show you yours. ;)

The heads blowing up!!! Bwahahahahahahahaha!

All in all, I liked it. SLJ was not the best choice for the villain. Not because he lacks ability, but rather the villain was too meek.

What the ... stand in?!?!?!?

Just when you think Harper and his people can't be any more moronic they manage to surprise.

On Tuesday, Irving Shipyard in Halifax started production of the 1st Offshore Arctic Patrol Ship the Harry DeWolf. The Harperites decided he should share in the news so made up a video of him promoting the program and his party. They shot one of him talking with a bridge in the background. What could the problem be?

The background is the problem. The idiots try to make you think it is Halifax when it is really Johnstown, Ontario. There is a bridge there that looks similar to the Halifax bridges, depending on the view used.

Hell, the guy who likes to wrap himself in the Canadian flag isn't even using a Canadian bridge in the background! It is actually the Ogdensburg–Prescott International Bridge, a U.S.-owned suspension bridge over the St. Lawrence river that connects Ogdensburg, New York to Johnstown, Ontario. Way to go Harper!

What a bunch of fucktards. Sure, it isn't always possible to do your video from where you want but why try faking it?!?!?!? Just do it in front of Parliament. In your office. At the PM's residence.

Why be honest when you can try and fake it. After all it was Harper who said;

“You’re a journalist, and we all know journalists make bad politicians. Politicians know how to stick to a message. That’s how they are successful. Journalists think they always have to tell the truth.”

Why bother with the truth when you have a message to get out.

Vote anything but Conservative! Lets kick this lying ass and his party out of power!

What the ... Duggar?!?!?

Josh Duggar, a name that has become synonymous with extreme hypocrisy, is in the news again.

He first became "news" by being one of the Duggar clan. A fundamentalist Christian family that espouses no sex, even no kissing, before marriage.

Then he became famous, or rather infamous, when it became known that he molested 5 underage girls when he was a teenager. (Which isn't to say it is OK to molest females who are of age.) Two of those girls are his sisters. This was kept from the authorities and he was "treated" within the Fundamentalist community. When it became known he was "cured" of it.

Then it came out that he subscribed to the Ashley Madison website and had affairs. So much for those great Christian values about fidelity.

THEN the magazine In Touch Weekly printed an interview with Josh's mistress, stripper and porn star Danica Dillon. And Joshy likes it rough.

What is he in the news for now? The reason why he has strayed and the steps he is taking to save himself. He is addicted to porn. That is why he is such a hypocrite. It is all the fault of porn. Not the repressive nature of his fundamentalist upbringing. But porn.

Oh yeah, and he is going into rehab for his addiction.

Wow. He is joining the ranks of those who claimed sex addiction when caught being a misogynistic or cheating asshole. What a fucking cop out. But about what I expect from someone like him.

Why take responsibility? He was taught growing up that everything was God's will, Why take blame when you can just say it was the will of God? I am almost a little surprise that this hasn't been blamed on God testing him and him failing. If God hadn't put the temptation there then he wouldn't have fallen. Instead it is the cop out "not my fault I have porn addiction".

Devil's Pass

A co-worker recommended the movie Devil's Pass to me. So, I watched it tonight.

It is about a group of documentarians, is that a word? A group of people going to film a documentary about a group of Russians, supposedly 9, that died in Dyatlev Pass in the Urals.

Strange things start happening as soon as the group gets to Russia. They are told a man they want to interview is dead. However, he is in the window holding a sign basically telling them to leave.

They meet a bartender's Aunt who was Nurse there when they found the people in the pass. She says there were 11 not 9.

The weirdness continues. When they get on their way it starts to remind me of The Blair Witch Project. Group of documentarians encounter strange shit but don't actually see it. Foot prints around their camp. Shit like that.

It isn't bad so far, I am am about 43 minutes into it, but it isn't that good. Better production values than Blair Witch Project, but that was sort of intentional to give BWP the feel it had.

Oh and no I don't think it is the Yeti following them. Mind you, it could be. But the one in charge says it isn't because they don't exist. Why would she be in charge if she didn't know these things. ;)

And the Geiger counters are picking up stuff. Can you see this Jensen? Oh Jensen! There is a door!!!!! A door in the middle of the mountain that locks from the outside. Of course they will open it. Wouldn't you? Nope. I would get the fuck out of there.

Oh yeah, let's leave the door that is already unlocked until tomorrow. Wow. Impeach your leader!

Orange lights in the sky. Hmmmm.

Holly has been strangely drawn to this place.


Holly and Jensen head for the door. Oh, and of course the cameraman goes too. He is omnipresent.

And they go in. Why am I having visions of the voice in Amityville Horror telling the priest to "Get Out!"?!?!?

Don't power up! Get out!

I like that this movie has me thinking. It isn't the greatest movie I have ever seen but it is entertaining me.

Damn! It works the Philadelphia Experiment into the movie!!!! :)

Ewwww they found his tongue earlier.

Feh ... why not switch batteries. Heh. :)

Ok ... I won't give anything else away. I like this movie. :) It isn't the best but it made me think. And I was right, which makes me like it even more. Being right is usually good. :)

Damn ... I see sequel.

Thank you Eastlink and *60!

I have to say dealing with incessant assholes calling to scam me or push their product is so much easier thanks to *60. I had problems with a constantly calling cunt a few years ago and the Eastlink customer care person I talked to told me about the wonders of *60. It still serves me well. :) I just wish I could block more than 12 numbers. I haven't had to block that many but I wish it was an unlimited number. :)

For those who don't know and are Eastlink users:

As soon as you hang up on the annoying assholes enter *60.

Listen to the instructions. You will be told to hit #01# to block the last number that called you.

Badda boom badda bing. Asshole blocked. :)

It is so easy it is scary. :)

What prompted this was a call from yet another scammer tonight. Some piece of shit calling from 1-761-425-8935 trying to tell me that my computer was sending out some sort of distress message and I needed to trust them and give them access.

Fucktards. I trust no one but my mother and my dog.

Fuck you IMDB!

I have been watching a show called Booze Traveler. It is pretty interesting and has some great quotes. I wanted to compile some and what would be easier than doing a google search on "booze traveler  quotes". Boy was I wrong.

The VERY first hit is for the IMDB quote page for Booze Traveler. Which would have been great if it actually had any fucking quotes. Instead I got to see the folowing:
"It looks like we don't have any Quotes for this title yet.
Be the first to contribute! Just click the "Edit page" button at the bottom of the page or learn more in the Quotes submission guide."
Fuck you IMDB! If you don't have a quote page then don't act as if you do!

I copied down a great quote from Season 1 of this show that I will NOT share with IMDB but will put in a future post.

They Live

The Rowdy One is gone. R.I.P. Roddy Piper. Gone, but never forgotten. He will live on in video, be it wrestling or movies. In remembrance of him I am watching They Live tonight. I haven't seen it in about 15-20 years.

I either did not know or completely forgot that They Live is a John Carpenter movie. Damn!

Holy shit Piper looks young. Then again, he was back then, it was 27 years ago.

The lead in is kind of slow and if you don't pay attention you will miss things.

when it comes to people trying to survive ... S2D2 ... same shit different decade.

"The golden rule. He who has the gold makes the rules." Steel makers in the movie and bankers now. Car makers in between. Like I said, same shit different decade.

TV was used to make people into zombies then. Now it is cell phones. What exactly is the opiate of the masses?

Now I am remembering why I liked the movie so much. :)

22 minutes in and still kind of slow. But it works.

Bye bye shanty town. But they will rebuild.

I love how they show the use of subliminal messaging. Send me money. It is well done. Send me money. Of course we don't know it until he gets the right pair of shades. Send me money.

It is a sad commentary on society that the theme of this movie STILL resonates today.

Damn Piper really pulls off the facial expressions the first time he sees one of THEM.

Heh ... money sublimanlly says "THIS IS YOUR GOD." It does seem like that with a lot of people. Send me money. ;)

And now it all starts to come together.

Interesting the first thing I think of when he sees the Politician is one of them with OBEY behind him is George Bush with Mission Accomplished behind him. When had he accomplished? NOTHING!

"You know, you look like your head fell in the cheese dip back in 1957."

Heh :)

"You see, I take these glasses off, she looks like a regular person, doesn't she? Put 'em back on ... formaldehyde-face!"

Damn ... you gave yourself away!

"That's like pouring perfume on a pig." Bwahahahahahaha!!!

And now I am reminded of ... GO ROWDY!!! Clothesline! GO ROWDY!! Kick their asses!!!! ... oops I digress ... reminded of Monty Python. "Come see the violence inherent in the system."

"I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass ... and I am all out of bubblegum." Heh :)

"Momma don't like tattletales." BLAM!!!!!!!!!

Damn! NOW things are speeding up. Go Roddy! Go Roddy!

God damn! Does her ass look that nice with the sunglasses on? Yes it does. :)

Is Captain Lou Albano her neighbour?!?!?!? Nope, but it could be his son.

Ouch! Damn! Never trust a dame! Ummm ... never kidnap a dame?

And that is why you don't hide stuff in garbage!

"I'm giving you a choice. Either put on these glasses or start eating that trashcan." Sounds like we have ourselves a no disqualification street fight here!!!! Go Roddy!

"You dirty motherfucker!" Heh ... someone forget it was no DQ. :)

And there was a WWF ... oops ... WWE move. :)

God damn! Piper fights as dirty in the movie as he did in the ring! Go Roddy!

Roddy suplexed him!!!

"You ain't the first son of a bitch to wake up from their dream!"

Life as you know it is over. Or as Roddy said "Brother, life's a bitch... and she's back in heat."

The hotel room ... that is the raging Rowdy Roddy that I remember from the ring. :)

"You can take your sunglasses off in here. We are all human."  Fuck that! Trust no one without the lenses!

Interesting corridor.

I need assistance.


And in the end he gives them the finger. :)

Love the ending.

God damn. Good movie. I reccommend it. :)

DOA: Dead or Alive

I was perusing a site and saw a blurb about a movie called DOA Dead or Alive.

The set up was interesting enough. A group of female martial arts experts are invited to take part in DOA. A competition. Well, that is how it seems.

The fight scenes so far, 11 minutes in, have been great.

Devon Aoki. Mmmmm.

Three, oops four, women who have been invited are the core of the story. Men have been invited but at this point who cares. :)

Right off the bat I was thinking of .... Blood Sport. Kumite! Kumite! Kumite! The movie has about the same amount of plot to it. But it works. Kind of like, well, Blood Sport and Desperado. Yet so much better than the Street Fighter movie.

Still not caring that guys were invited. To be fodder. :)

OMG ... her father bit her in the inner thigh. :) Oh to be Kevin Nash. :)

Holy shit there is a plot. Of sorts. But now the Martial arts women are playing volleyball so who cares. :)

Oh yeah bitch the glasses are off!

It is a good movie to watch if you just want to see some fighting. It doesn't take any thinking. If it was as bloody as Desperado it would have been better. :)

A good way to while away some time.

Hokey ending but I liked it. :)

I didn't know it at the time but it is based on a video game.

Hmmm ... now I want to watch Blood Sport again. And Desperado.

Journey 2: The Mysterious Island

On a whim I decided to watch Journey 2: The Mysterious Island.

It started off ok, with a funny police chase. The step-father, played by The Rock, just happens to be an ex-Navy cryptographer who then decides to help his step-son go to mysterious island and find his Grandfather.

The step-father also just happens to be rich and takes the step-son to find the island.

Luis Guzman for comedic relief works.

So far it is actually kind of funny. The helicopter ... heh. Damn. Intense flight.

"We are literally walking on eggshells."

C'mon Rock throw a People's Elbow on that lizard!

Action scenese aren't bad. Ok, he punched the giant lizard. That was pretty good.

Granpa is Michael Caine. Cool. :) The back and forth between him and the Rock is pretty good.

The peck pop of love. Bwahahahahahahaha!!! Feed 'em they are hungry. Bwahahahahahaha!!!

God damn ... I am ... enjoying the movie. Damn! I started off not expecting much of anything. ok, I lie, I expected a huge suck fest. It isn't bad.

"Medi-care doesn't cover old ladies falling off of giant bees." Classic. :)

The movie is good enough that I can suspend my disbelief of giant bees. Nice chase scene.

Rocking the ukelele. :)

Ok. If you want a movie that is funny without having to think a lot then this is a good one. I like it.

Great ending. WTF with the game off game on? Sounded like being in Canada. ;)

What the ... shooting?!?!?

This could also be called What the ,,, media whore?!?!?!? What the .... asshole got shot?!?!/

As I have droned on about before, people are morons and a lot of them are media whores, They will do anything to get attention. Case in point is an "Internet Sensation" by the name of Tyrone Jones.

Mr. Jones is one of many YouTubers who pull pranks or do "social experiments" and post them online. Mr. Jones type of prank is to go up to a couple and, aggressively, letting them know he is going to have intercourse with the wife/gf. In one of the videos I saw he walks up to a couple about to enter their building and shouts "I am Tyrone and I am gonna fuck your wife!" Wow. That is so funny. NOT!

This is entertainment?!?!?!?

It worries me when people refer to assholes like Tyrone Jones as "street performers". Seriously? Walking up to strangers and getting in their faces telling them you are going to fuck their wife is street performance? What the fuck?!?!?!

The fact he is considered an "internet sensation" is also disturbing.

So, a few days ago, Jonesy was doing his "street performance" to Darnell Williams and his wife in Houston. He was on Williams property. According to eyewitnesses Jones was his usual self, aggressive, profane, "I am going to fuck your wife". Williams told him to leave 3 times. Jones and his crew didn't so Williams pulled out a 9mm and shot Jones in the chest 3 times.

Then Jones "crew" ran up yelling it was just a prank. Just a prank. Yeah, right. 911 was called and hilarity ensued. What a great prank!

Fortunately?, Jones lived. Odds are he will learn nothing from this and continue his "street performance". Jones will be charged with Criminal Trespass when he is released.

Williams is under arrest and being charged with aggravated assault with a firearm and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. IF Jones approached him like he normally does and refused to leave the assault charge should be dropped. Hell, I hope the second charge gets dropped even though it is justified.

What the fuck is up with people? It is just a prank. I am doing a social experiment. No, you are being a fucktard. And this fucktard almost got killed.

Tonight I watched "Kite". I had never heard of it before, or the anime that came before it.

It started off gory enough. I found out the impetus of the main character quickly enough. Samuel Jackson is in it!!!! Damn!

Sawa, the main character, is out for revenge. Someone killed her father, a cop, and mother. Jackson is her father's partner.

The film has a gritty look to it. Gangs running the streets. Lots of violence.

The acting so far is kind of shite. The action is waning. Damn she just ganked the fucker! Damn, a dildo gun! Ok. It just got a bit better.

The plot is kind of blah. She kills someone who will lead her to the one who killed her parents. Then SJ gives her a drug to make her forget everything. But she remembers ... something.

Meh ... it is hard to get into this movie. It is too jumpy. The fight scenes are pretty good though. It kind of helps make up for everything else. But not really enough.

God damn. Stun gun to the nuts!!! God damn!!!!

Yet I keep having to skip forward for some reason.

Ok, the skewer up the nose was great.

Too predictable.

Oh fuck it. Had to just stop watching this one.

I want my time back.

Thursday, June 25, 2015

Shit People say ... when they think they are important.

Stop the presses!!! Stop the presses!!!! Bristol Palin announced to the world on her blog that she is pregnant ... again. And I really don't give a fuck. Ok, a little fuck (of annoyance)  after reading the following,

"I know this has been, and will be, a huge disappointment to my family, to my close friends, and to many of you. But please respect Tripp's and my privacy during this time. I do not want any lectures and I do not want any sympathy."

Bristol if you didn't want lectures or sympathy you wouldn't have said anything. All this blog post does is attract attention. Which is probably her real goal. When was the last time the media paid attention to her?

Her "announcement" reminds me of people who make a huge scene leaving Facebook, You Tube, or other Social Media. They make a huge scene with their good bye, suck in all the sympathy, and thrive on the negative as it gives credence to their "problems" that are making them leave. And of course they either only leave for a short time or never leave.

And what exactly is Bristol Palin famous for again? Oh yeah, like the Kardashians, NOTHING. She hasn't done anything of note. She hasn't achieved anything of note. She rode on the coat tails of her Mother's "celebrity" status, another media whore.

Yet US magazine features this story in their Celebrity Mom section. I miss the days when people were a celebrity for a reason. Sure you would get those who had their 15 minutes of fame, but the 15 minutes would usually end and they would fade away.

Oh yeah, and a special FUCK YOU to Facebook for forcing me to see trending shite like this.

John Wick

Wacthing John Wick now. The plot seemed interesting. At the least I figured I could enjoy a mindless shoot'em up.

It started kind of slow. The death of the wife. Moving on from being a hitman.

God damn I love that Mustang!!!!!!! Good brakes too. ;)

Ok, hurt the dog and I hope you die a long fucking painful death. Fucker killed the dog. I am hoping Mr. Wick REALLY makes it painful before killing the piece of shit. Fuck.

Keannu is still pretty wooden as an actor. But part of it makes this role believable. Who wouldn't be distant or detached after what he went through.

I had to laugh when the Crime Boss called the chop shop owner.

"I heard you struck my son."

"Yes sir, I did."

"May I ask why?"

"He stole John Wick's car sir and ahhh killed his dog."

"Oh." Crime boss hangs up.

Conversation fucking over. :) Someone knows his son is going to die for being a fucking douchebag.

"It is not what you did, son that angers me so. It is who you did it to." Good line.

Yeah, the phone call made it worse.

"What did he say?"


"Task your crew."

"How many?"

"How many do you have?"

Ok, a blood bath is coming. :) A righteous one. :) The boogeyman is coming for you! Kind of like Steven Seagal in "Hard To Kill" but ... better? Yeah, better. :)

I am liking this movie. And it isn't just the beer talking. ;)

You give someone who has lost the most important person in their life something to focus on, and in a negative way, you are going to get fucked up. And I am only almost half way through the movie.

God damn. Sweargin Cocksucker! He is in the movie. :)

Ok, almost the half way point and I am liking the movie. Slow start. Good middle. Let's see the body count.

The professioanl courtieses are ... good.

One dog killer down.

Holy shit. The way he keeps eye contact until the end.

And we enter the Wow your son is a pussy zone. As well as the blood bath zone.

Ok, Keannue showed that Steven was shit in "Hard to Kill". People get hurt. They can still kill, but they get hurt. And Seagal didn't. ;)

The last half started to slow down.

"They know your coming."

"Of course. But it won't matter."


Wick kills the POS and ... still more people need killing.


If you want to just kill some time watch this one.

I am watching Interstellar tonight. So far, I am 15 minutes into it and it is striking a chord. One of the things abhor is when people try rewriting history. Things like the Japanese trying to rewrite what happened during WW 2, saying the Rape of Nanking never happened. The Shelburne Race Riot, in Nova Scotia, that we are never taught about.

Which is what is happening up to this point in the movie. The government decided to rewrite history so that the moon landing was just a deception to mess up the soviets. Scarily enough, there are people who really believe the moon landing was faked. NASA went underground after they refused to bomb starving people.

Then the movie took off. Literally and figuratively. :) God damn I hate how literally is abused now. ;)

I don't trust TARS.

The movie at the 1 hour 9 minute mark is not what I expected.

Good. Damn good in many ways. But not what I expected. The focus on time differentials is good.

Ahhhh ..... gravity. :)

The whole time distorion is ... intereting. :)

Timey whimey .... damn.

I called who the ghost is/was.

Overall, it was a good movie. I liked it. And it did set itself up for a sequel. Worth seeing.

Mike Babcock

Mike Babcock finally decided. He chose to leave the safety of the Detroit Red Wings and become the Head Coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs. The contract is reported to be for 8 years and worth $50-Million. Good luck to you Mr. Babcock. You have definitely taken on a challenge it will be interesting to see what happens.

People have already been coming out on two extremes. The doom and gloom group claim he made a horrible mistake. Toronto is the kiss of death. He won't be able to do anything. His career is over.

The head up their arse group see this as THE turning point. They could be right, It could be a turning point but it could be years before it is proven true or not. Some of these idiots are already making claims that the Leafs are now cup contenders next year.

Extremist Fans. They do make me chuckle.

I did find what one pundit said today very funny. (Unfortunately, I can't find a link to what he said.) He claimed that as of the moment Babcock was signed the leafs must NOW be taken seriously. Really? As of right now? What a twat. The team is the same bottom of the barrel team NOW as it was yesterday. It needs rebuilding.

Also, Babcock is coming to Toronto from the Red Wings. The Red Wings arguably have THE BEST scouting system in the NHL. (And I say this as a Canadiens fan.) It is amazing the talent they can find based on the picks they have every year. They also have a great system for preparing their prospects for the NHL. With Detroit he inherited a lot of apparatus to help keep the team winning.

People expecting an immediate turn around are setting themselves up for a huge disappointment. Rebuilding takes time.

Hopefully Babcock has the backing of MLS and the leafs management and will be allowed to build the team the way he wants. It should be interesting to see how things unfold.

The Equalizer

I remember watching the tV show The Equalizer. An ex-special operative slaying his demons by helping those in need. I liked the show. I wish it lasted longer and showed us more about who and what McCall was.

Now there is a movie of the same name. based on the same show. This one stars Denzel Washington as McCall.

The lead in was slow. But not bad.

Having watched the original TV series it was hard not seeing a little white dude as McCall. But it was Denzel!

I kept expecting everything to be a background. Especially working for "Home Mart". A cover ID while he helped someone who contacted him. That was my mistake. Stop expecting the TV show I knew and go based on what was in the movie. Bad mistake.

Taken on its own as a "new" thing it was still damn good. For a rehashed thing. ;)

I loved the TV show. The whole redemption thing with McCall. His past and how it affected things,

And I loved the same things about this movie. But for different reasons. This McCall didn't take out an advertisement. He saw the people around him who needed help and tried to help them. That is an equalizer.

Which leads to an interesting question. In the TV series people came to him. In the movie he saw the people in need and went to them. Which is better?

For me, it worked. It had Denzel and it had an interesting plot. It works. (Even though I still expected some triple or quadruple layer of backup. And 3/4 of the way through I am still expecting it.) :)

So, this could be the prequel to the TV show. Regardless, I like it. Yeah, there is something to be said for the asshole getting it in the end. Prequel. Fuck yeah. :)

Jack Reacher

after my last post I figured I would go through posts I had wriiten, partially written, or wanted to write, and do something about them. so I am posting this review I wrote about the movie Jack Reacher.  It was written as I watched the movie and alcohol may or may not have been consumed. OK, it was. ;)


Lately I have been reading the Jack Reacher novels by Lee Child aka Jim Grant. I have been liking the novels even though the hoboness of Jack Reacher was hard to grasp at first. Scarily enough, I started reading them because I heard about the Jack Reacher movie Tom Cruise did.

Tom Cruise. He is a bit wacky but he can act. Maybe his wackiness helps with that.

I never watched the movie until now. Something about Cruise made me stay away. After reading some of the novels my interest was piqued.

Having read the novels I wondered why the hell they picked Cruise to play Reacher. Jack Reacher is 6'5" tall and built like a brick shit house. Tom Cat is 5'7" and change.

Cruise did justice to the character in the books.

The story diverged from the books. They left stuff out. They changed things. Mind you that made it better in some ways. (OK having Cruise playing a person big enough to kill someone much shorter with one punch is way off.) In many ways?!? There were unexpected things and that made the movie better for someone who read the books and expected it to be exact.

Overall, I enjoyed the movie. Damn you Tom Cat. You continue to pull off being an action hero.

Time goes on.

What is the old saying ... time flies when you are having fun. Well, the last 5+ years must have been a lot of fun because they blew by.

I got home from South Korea May10th 2010. What was going through my head. Fuck, I have to find work. What if all the nay sayers and fucktards are right? I stayed in South Korea because I couldn't find anything else at home.

5 years later and I find myself in a job I enjoy. I usually go to work in a good mood and leave in one. It isn't perfect, no job is, but it is good. Before I was there a year I moved from part time to full time. Before another year had passed I made lower management. Now I find myself on the cusp of becoming middle management. All in 5 years at home and 4 years at a job.

So much for being a failure at home and only being in South Korea because I couldn't make it at home.

To the nay sayers and fucktards ... go fuck yourselves. :)

To digress a bit more, I find myself looking at this blog. Posts I have started and never finished. Posts I have planned on starting but never gotten around to. I could easily post about work but signed a non-disclosure agreement. It isn't just that life is too busy, it is busy. But, I just can't find the impetus to write and post. Hopefully it will come back soon or I may just have to close this blog down.

Facebook Friends

I had an interesting discussion with a co-worker last week about Facebook and "friends" on it.

He shared a meme making fun of people posting about every time they go to the gym. In his repost he mentioned not caring about people posting that either. He got one reply to it from a "Facebook friend" who called him a hypocrite because he posted a few times over the years about going to the gym. He was incensed, flamed the guy, and then removed him as a friend.

This "Facebook friend" was someone he knew to say hi to about 5-6 years ago. Basically an acquaintance. Not a real "Friend". Yet someone he added to Facebook. He hasn't actually seen or talked to this person in 4 years, since the acquaintance moved away. This is the only thing his "friend" has commented on in the last 4-5 years, even when they were living in the same city.

He wondered why the "friend" would make a comment like that but nothing else over the years. I told him the answer is easy, Facebook, hell the internet in general, allows people to act like twats. People troll with impunity because they don't care and/or believe they won't get caught. A lot of people use the internet as an excuse to be an asshole and say things they wouldn't face to face.

The guy was an acquaintance not a real friend years ago. Why have him as a friend on Facebook if that was the case? Just to pad your number of friends and make yourself look important to ... hell I don't know ... who really cares how big someone's "Facebook friend" list is?

My co-worker seemed to think he was wronged by the guy's comment. If that is all the guy had to say in all the years why bother saying it? To which I replied with two questions. 1) Why would you care what someone you haven't talked to in years and who was just an acquaintance thought? 2) Why would you even have someone you don't talk to or think about as a friend.

He had no answer to that.

I told him not to feel bad about that. A lot of people are in the same boat as him. Myself included. I accepted friend requests years ago from people who were just acquaintances and I have never talked to since leaving South Korea. Then, we shared friends and would see each other from time to time when out. Usually at "beverage" establishments. Since leaving Korea, nothing. That works both ways though. None of us (There are a few acquaintances from that time in my life who are "Facebook friends") has had anything to do with the other since I left South Korea. I have only really made an attempt to keep in touch with my actual friends from those days.

The other day I shared a meme about people posting about what they ate for breakfast and people not caring. An acquaintance from way back then left a comment basically calling me a hypocrite because I had posted a lot of food pictures over the years.

In a way he was right, in a way he was wrong. I was commenting on people who post pics of everything they eat all the time when I shared the meme. I also created the album and posted the pictures starting way back because friends at home asked about foreign foods, and students in Korea asked about foods outside of Korea. Yet, he was right to a degree, I had posted pics like that.

What to do? Should I react like my co-worker? Attack back and remove the person? Why bother? The OLD acquaintance really doesn't matter in my life. Looking back, they never really mattered or they would have advanced from acquaintance to friend.

I almost commented "Wow, only time you have ever posted on my Facebook page in 5+ years and it is to troll. What a fucktard you are." But why bother? He would either be happy he "got to me" by being a troll (which after looking at how he comments on Facebook seems to be the truth) or not care because we don't communicate.

In the end, it really just made me realize that I should clean my friend list up and get rid of the acquaintances who I gave friend status to.
