George Carlin Should Have Been President

Yesterday I was at my friend's house, and he showed me a George Carlin DVD he had gotten from his uncle. Before that, I had never heard any of George Carlin's bits. Hell, I had never even heard of him until he died. Now I realize I missed out on a comedian that's not only funny as hell, but makes a lot of sense. Just today I watched his "Religion is bull****" bit on YouTube, and the things he said about how we (not me though, I figured this out a long time ago) have been mindlessly tricked into believing there is "an invisible man in the sky" seemed so obvious, I can't believe people haven't figured that out yet. By far, my favorite bit from the DVD (I only watched about 45 minutes worth of material) was his long bit on how overcomplicated airplane safety is. But the one that made the most sense to me was a short bit he made about how mindless patriotism is stupid, and I agree. After all, just because you are born on a particular piece of land, doesn't mean you have to go around parading about how much better that piece of land is than any other piece of land. Seriously, if we ever invent a way to bring people back from the dead, George Carlin should be our first priority. And while we're at it, we should elect him President of the United States for life. He'd certainly do a much better job than a certain current president.

Oh, and to anybody who doesn't like him because he curses a lot: they're just words, get over it.

Something that Bugs Me

Today I watched just the end of the movie I Am Legend (SPOILER WARNING)  and as the movie ended, one nagging question was running through my head: Why the hell would someone pull the pin on a grenade, and then just hold it? I know that it's supposed to be an emotional scene and all, but it's not like that was Robert Neville's only option. He could have waited until the zombie broke a hole in the glass wall, thrown the grenade, and then went with Anna and Ethan in the escape way they found. I realize that the writer made him kill himself to symbolize how he had dedicated his life to finding the cure for the virus that killed 90% of humanity, and that this film isn't exactly realistic. But no one would be that stupid, especially not a brilliant scientist.

Movie Review: A Knight's Tale

This morning, I watched the film A Knight's Tale, which I enjoyed very much. Heath Ledger does an excellent job as William Thatcher, a former squire who rises through the ranks to become a knight. Before this, I had not watched any of Heath Ledger's films, and now I wish that he hadn't died. Anyway, I enjoyed the story of this movie very much. The jousting parts were awesome, especially the last one, where Count Adhemar flips off of his horse after Willam hits him. After watching this, I really want to see more of Heath Ledger's work (Brokeback Mountain is on TV this friday, which I'll probably tape), and some more medieval movies (Braveheart comes to mind as one I must watch).

Hilarious Colbert Report Video

Wow. I haven't updated this in a LOOOONG time. Luckily, it's summer (YAAAY!!!), so I'm going to try and update it more.

Anyways, to kick off my revival of this blog, is a simply hilarious video from last night's episode of one of my favorite TV shows, The Colbert Report.

Well, in the month since I last updated this, I've signed up for many online forums/groups. First, there is DeviantART, which is the biggest art community on the internet (my profile is on the side of this blog. Second is Last.FM, also known as "The social music revolution" (my last 5/10 played songs are on the side as well). Also, I've joined the Paint.NET forums, which is a community of people that make art using the free graphics program Paint.NET. Here is my profile, and Here is my gallery.

Other than that, not much has happened to me in the past month. I did also create two new brickfilms, which are on my YouTube profile.

New Comic Strip

A word of caution to intelligent people about to see Meet the Spartans for the first time. This can (and will) happen.

Movie Review - Freedom Writers

Today, I watched the movie
Freedom Writers, which stars Hillary Swank as a young teacher who tries to show troubled high school kids in Long Beach, California, that they have a voice that needs to be heard.

I enjoyed this movie very much. I thought that it had a very good message in it, and one that everyone should know about. This movie was very emotional, especially in the scenes where the teacher tells the kids that no one will care about them once they are dead, and the teacher gets divorced. I find it amazing that this actually happened in real life, and I think that it can be accomplished anywhere else. The ending, where the teacher tells the kids that she is still going to be their English teacher for the rest of their high school days was a great ending, in my opinion.

Overall, a great watch. Anyone who wants to be inspired to make a change in their lives should watch this movie attentively.

My Rating: 9 out of 10

Now on Flickr

I've signed up on Flickr, a huge and very popular image hosting, sharing, and organizing site. I'm in the process of moving all of my images from my profile to Flickr.


EDIT: Never mind. I've realized that Maj is much better with organizing. And more importantly, it's free (Better organization costs money). Luckily, I didn't delete anything yet.

2nd Edit: On second thought, I'll find some use for Flickr.

Now making comic strips!

Today I stumbled upon Strip, a website that allows you to make comic strips and post them in your own "strip blog". Wanting another creative outlet, I registered, and I've already created one comic strip.

Here is my strip blog. I'll try to make new comic strips on a regular basis, and I hope you enjoy them.

The Munzapoppa Blog- Now a brickfilming blog

I have decided to just focus on brickfilming with this blog, and I may split other stuff into another blog.


EDIT: Okay, turns out that it's going to be the other way around. My new, brickfilming only blog will be up soon.
