Entries in the 300 thread on the Drawingboard; Therapy

Film is an unappreciated art these days. I don't mean no one watches movies, but that people watch movies for the wrong reasons.

Example: going to 300 and expecting an oscar-worthy historical epic. My film taste is more broad lately, and I think I'm better for it. There's the socially conscious documentaries you see to educate yourself on world/historic situations, there's the arthouse films that explore life and it's many facettes' corollaries withing the human condition. Then there's the occasional blockbuster that rises just enough about the typical level of cattle feed to admit you enjoyed it. You don't go to be challenged, or to see fine character portrayal. You go for the glory of dudes is leather tighty-whiteys whom are handed swords and an endless supply of stuntmen to evicerate. It's not about lowering your expectations, it's about accepting that once in a while you need violent, visceral eye candy to pull you out of office life, if only for 110 minutes. And I think the 7 guys I talked into ditching work to see it with me would agree. I just hope it's not the reason Dan got fired.

If so, my bad.

Did a couple for the Drawingboard's 300 thread...

For the sake of Blogging.

Well just shy of 2 months isn't so bad. That's what - 1/6th of a year? It's still more frequent than I thought I'd be making entries.

Well, fresh off a break-up and not yet ready to talk about it, I will write about other stuff. How about the world's problems? Too much war - stop fighting already. Famine's still around? How about we stop over-processing the ass-loads of meat that fastfood companies utilize and ship it somewhere else? Oppressive governments and facist regimes lorded over populations of nations - get a gun and shoot anyone who tells you you can't do something. You have my permission. Yeah we are still facing diseases like Cancer, AIDs, and even smallpox ain't wiped out like they said it was. Cure them already.

There. I just solved all the world's problems. That was a good 5 minute distraction.
