4th of July Movie Review: Zero Dark Thirty

Since today is Independence Day, I decided to re-watch a movie that made me afraid of America. Beware, spoilers below. Movie Review First off, let me say that this ranks in my top ten favorite movies of all time. I like movies that make psychological impacts on me, and this is one of them. It chronicles the CIA’s search for Osama bin Laden. The movie starts off with phone calls from September 11th, 2011. You hear terrified people in the towers calling 911 for help. It sets the tone for the next scene, where you see the CIA torture...

Poetic Hyperbole

One of my favorite books is Ecclesiastes. I was reading it the other day, and I came upon a section that made me laugh out loud. “Look,” says the Teacher, “this is what I have discovered: “Adding one thing to another to discover the scheme of things–while I was still searching but not finding — I found one upright man among a thousand, but not one upright woman among them all.” –¬†Ecclesiastes 7:27-28 I wasn’t laughing out loud because I thought he was being sexist, or even because it came out of nowhere. I was laughing because it was...

Zombies and Disaster Movies

I saw World War Z on opening night, Friday, June 21, 2013. I have to say that I was entertained! Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio are constantly vying for position of my favorite actor, and Brad really had a great performance in the movie. Spoiler Free World War Z Summary His character, Gerry Lane, was very believable and did pretty much everything I imagine a good father would be willing to do to take care of his family. The movie plays a great deal on the geopolitical climate of the world today, and could be interpreted as having some...

Sandy Hook Fundraiser Update

Sorry this update took so long, I was waiting until I had time to setup my official blog before I posted the final details of my fundraiser for the families affected by the Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting. I think it’s the best place to put the update for all the lovely people that helped me raise money to help the families who lost loved ones in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, and it has more of a degree of permanence than any other online medium I could use to post this information. 88.95% of the money we...

Lucid Dream this Morning

Ever since I was a small child, I’ve been having lucid dreams. It just happens a lot that while dreaming, I’ll come to a realization that I’m dreaming, and then I can do whatever I want. Usually this happens a few minutes before I wake up, which makes it a very short experience. If I get lucky sometimes it’s a longer lucid experience, but often times I’m lucid for a perceived 30 minutes or so, and then I get sucked back into the dream and forget that I was ever aware that I was dreaming. Anyways, I’m very into...
