a word of advice...

Some will tell you not to pay any attention to them and make up your own mind. This is good advice. I'm sure someone said the same thing about the trail that the Donner party took and look what happened. "Oh no, we make the same trek across the country, easy as pie. You'll get to California, no problem." Those poor shcmucks. Of course I'm talking about reviews. Good or bad, everyone has an opinion. Obviously, the Donners heard a bad review and acted on it. Bad form! I believe, however, that a little knowledge before going off on any excercise of work or play; has never harmed anyone.

I just read Butler's review of Pirates 3. Wow! He has never been this insulted by a movie. The guy made a sheep joke (in reference to us the audience) at the end of the article. Gotta love the guy for that. "But Cam, I would rather form my own opinion, then let someone sour it before I see a movie."

On the contray, Bubba!

No matter the intelligence or preferences of said reviewer, NO ONE CAN SAY THOSE THINGS ABOUT A FILM THAT WAS JUST OKAY. That was almost on the level of hated of everyone involved in the making of the film.

Any way I'll probably see it and form my opinion within the first few minutes. That's usually when you can tell where the movie is going. If it is in fact horrible, I will be back here to tell you so.

I haven't forgotten you my dear...

I've been real busy. With work and life in general to write. As a matter of fact, I'm writting this when I should be eating dinner and then taking a shower. And then I can have my first smoke of the day. I mean, really, do I have to wait so long to poison myself with cancer? You'd figure my enemies would offer me a cig right after work. Anyway, I've been thinking of ways to bring you into my world and the best I can come up with is my past. Des Moines that is. I know I promised it this time, but damnit, it's just too big. So I'm going to break it up into chapters and we'll see from there. Until next time...
