First of all, I’d like to congratulate all of the people who have been able to do the post-a-day thing this month. I don’t know how you do it. Hell, I’m only posting once a week and I can’t even do that right. This post should’ve been done a couple of days ago.
There are a few reasons for my tardiness. First of all, I got sucked into reading Vengeance of the Iron Dwarf by R.A. Salvatore. The story itself is a mash-up of recycled stories from previous books in the series (which is bound to happen eventually. After all, it is the 27th book in the Dark Elf saga), but he writes so well that it doesn’t bother you and you still can’t put it down.
Not that long ago, I went to a store.
I know that’s not a very exciting tale, but considering I was once told I was never allowed to come back, it is somewhat interesting. Personally, I find it humorous, especially since I did nothing to deserve this lifelong ban. Of course, I also find it humorous that I’ve been there several times since my ban and nobody has ever said anything to me.
The whole thing started a few months after I graduated high school. At the time, I was working the fast food job I had while still attending classes. I felt I needed to get away from fast food, so I applied for a job at the store. I got the job.
When I was growing up, that was something both of my parents would always tell me: “Never hit a girl”. Actually, I’m pretty sure they told me not to hit anyone, but I had brothers so hitting definitely occurred. I was able to abide by the “Don’t hit girls” rule, however.
To this day, I have never broken that rule. This morning, though, I thought about it.
It’s been quite some time since I’ve done one of my “Random Thoughts of the Day” posts, so I figured it was way past time to subject you to the nonsense that’s bouncing around my head. Lucky you! HAHAHA!
* Colbert has done a pretty good job taking over for Letterman, but I think I preferred him as the Colbert Report character.
I’m sure some of you may have seen the video that someone put out arguing that Daniel-san is actually the bad guy in The Karate Kid and Johnny is the good guy. It is an interesting theory, and the guy had a couple of good points, but I don’t buy that one.It did make me think about various movie villains and if there was an argument to be made for them being the good guy. I came up blank for a while, but I finally got one.
I think the reason it took me so long to find this one is because it’s a movie that I don’t like. In fact, if it was up to me, I’d never have watched this movie in the first place. Both Mrs. Revis and Baby E like it, however, so I’ve been forced to watch it more times than I’m comfortable admitting to. Of course, there’s a chance that someone else has made this argument before me, but since I’ve never seen it, I’m going to say that I’m the one who came up with it.
What’s the movie, you ask? It’s right on the other side of the “Continue Reading” button.
I’ve said on here before that I will never write a story that involves time travel. There are way too many holes that can come up and way too many variables to consider. I was content just sitting back and enjoying the time travel stories that I either watched on TV or read in a book.
Now, I can’t even do that anymore.
Let me give you an example (WARNING: THIS WILL CONTAIN THE EVENTS AT THE END OF THE FLASH’S FIRST SEASON AND THE FIRST EPISODE OF THE SECOND SEASON. IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW, STOP READING NOW).
I told you recently about a show I discovered online. After all, Daredevil is a Netflix original, so you have to watch it online. The online subscription services like Netflix and Hulu are great. For around $10 a month each, you get millions of hours worth of TV and movies.
Ok, I don’t know for sure that they have millions of hours worth of TV and movies, but it certainly feels that way.
I have been able to use them to catch up on shows I have missed like Arrow and Top Shot: All Stars. They have also let me discover new shows. Some of them have been good. Some bad. Either way, I’m going to share a few of them with you.
