About Me

Godless democratic socialist, look towards northern Europe for inspiration on what role-models our economy should aspire towards. Love the ACLU and donate heavily to them each year, wish they'd get with the program and defend the Second Amendment with as much fervor as they do the rest of the Bill of Rights. Proud member of the 99%.

Atlas Shrugged Part ][

So... I thought I'd celebrate acing my Math test earlier this afternoon, so I stopped at the Redbox on the way home and picked up a DVD. And lo' and behold, what did I find?

The sequel to the classic that almost put me to sleep... but I try to keep an open-mind, so I figured I'd give it another try.

First thing I noticed is that practically the entire original cast were replaced by newbies. Did the original flop that bad that ALL the original actors/actresses wanted nothing to do with the sequel? Say it ain't so!

Sure enough, once again the set consisted of mostly stuffy board rooms, cocktail parties, and the occasional train-car interior. It's probably not hard to turn a profit on a low-budget film when your only real expenses are the fancy suits and dresses the main characters wear!



Lots more boring dialogue, a rousing speech about how money isn't evil, straw-man arguments about the government supposedly getting so oppressive that it no longer allows for workers to quit their jobs or get pay raises, nor for inventors to invent new things (no more patents!) And of course the mystery dynamo -- the power source to end all power sources.

I wish there was more to say about this film, but that really about covers it. 111 minutes dragged out with a train crash or two thrown it for effect.

It looks like Dagny finally finds John Galt in the end. Wish they would have skipped straight to that part right at the beginning when they were showing her flying her plane, because the rest was all just pretty much filler in between.

I'm not sure there will ever be a Part 3, but I am kind of curious to see what kind of "utopia" they've created, supposedly free from the corrupting vices of the rest of society.

Oh well. $1.27 and a couple hours of my life I'll never get back.

Don't You Just Love Those Regular DVDs That Advertise Blu-Ray?

Seems like they are on every regular DVD rental these days.

The advertisements feature all this sharp sound and crisp picture, suggesting you only get that high quality if you buy Blu-Ray -- except, that's regular DVD quality at work there! What you are seeing/hearing is what you already got! Otherwise, you wouldn't be able to see/hear it!

They may as well just come out and say: "You don't really need Blu-Ray, because the status quo is just fine."



Some of these advertisers never cease to amaze me...

Steubenville Rape Victim Receiving Death Threats

Jesus... no wonder so many girls and women are reluctant to report sexual assaults.

And now the whole world knows her name...

Mass. woman sues FedEx over marijuana delivery

PLYMOUTH, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts woman has sued FedEx, claiming the company mistakenly sent her a package containing seven pounds of marijuana, then gave her address to the intended recipients, who later showed up at her door.

Tobin said she thought the package was a birthday present for her daughter, because when she opened it, she found candles, pixie sticks and peppermint. There was also something she thought was potpourri, but it was marijuana.

Tobin said that about an hour later, a man knocked on her door looking for the package, while two men sat in a vehicle in her driveway, waiting. She said she didn't have it, and bolted and slammed the door. Tobin claims FedEx gave out her address, which led the men to her home.

Jesus Christ... I'm not a big fan of frivolous lawsuits, but I think this woman may just have a case.

There's no reason FedEx couldn't have just sent the driver back to pick up the package.

Giving her address out to potential criminals just to save FedEx the labor/gas/trip is just plain negligent.

Someone needs to be held accountable.
