Sa Da Teh

Cover of Cover of Fear of a Black HatI know that my movie taste is probably going to be questioned after this but I really think that "Fear of a Black Hat" and "Pootie Tang" are two of the funniest movies I have ever seen. I'd put them right up there with the funniest movies ever made. Of course, no one ever accused me of having good taste.

Nero Fiddled

On the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina there have been a number of documentaries about the storm and subsequent tradgedy in New Orleans. Every time I see one of these it just brings to mind the thoughts that went through my head at the time. How come it took five days for the federal government to get aid to people in New Orleans when we managed to get aid half way around to the world to aid the victims of the tidal wave in two days? I don't know, but when the President flies over a scene of devastation like the one in New Orleans and can only remark about how much he used to party there during his younger days, I can't help but think that something is horrendously wrong.

Make it so

Red Alert! Red Alert! (think of me saying that in my best Captain Picard voice) Apparently a plot to blow up airplanes traveling from London to the US was discovered. Currently you cannot carry any liquid or gel onto a plane in your carry on luggage. Baby formula and medicine are still allowed. That got me thinking (well of course it did, or else I wouldn't be posting a random thought), would it possible to get on board a plane with a combustible liquid inside an implant? Breast, Butt, Cheek, Chin, Penis, whatever. I'm just curious because it seems to me that we are heading toward a day when you won't be able to get on a plane without a complete body x-ray and scan. It's going to take at least 24 hours to go anywhere because the scanning process is going to take so long. Of course if they would just hurry up and invent the Star Trek transporter none of this would be necessary. Beam me to Cancun, Scotty!

Please, Please, Please

Hillary Clinton can't possibly end up as the Democratic nominee for President, can she? Never has anyone with negatives as high as she has been elected to national office. It would would the Republicans wet dream to have her as an opponent for the next election. Right wing fundamentalists would literally come out of the woodworks to vote against her. Hopefully the Democratic party is smart enough to realize this. Of course, I am talking about the Democrats, so maybe not.

Pain and Profit

Do we really need to see more movies about 9/11? I can't speak for everyone, but I know that I don't. I was in NY on that day and still live here. Everytime I look at the skyline and don't see the WTC is reminder enough. Using one of the worst days in this nations history to try and turn a profit, just seems wrong to me. I don't know, maybe it's just me, but hopefully the two movies that come out this year are the last ones ever made.

Two Wrongs

Is predicting weather the greatest job ever invented? It probably the only occupation that I can think of where you really don't lose your job for being wrong. It's great. Why aren't Colleges and Universities filled with kids who want to be meteorologists?

It's a Small World

But would you really want to teach it to sing in perfect harmony? That would take a while, wouldn't it?
