Hello to all. I hope this day finds you well and in good, or as good as can be expected, health. Right Then, let's get started.
First off, if you are iowastate you may as well turn around and get out right now. With no hard feelings. See I may post some "scantily clad women" in this blog and I don't need you writing one of yours telling the world what they WON't see in yours. A direct verbal attack at me, and others. Shame on you for the backhanded way you did that. But this sage has no hard feelings.
Now that tha's out the way. I would like to address the waste of time which is The Dark Knight Rises. I won't review it. But i will tell you to save your money. And before any of you tell me idon't know my head from 3rd base, let me tell you that I was born in 1957 when the creator of Batman was still doing the comic. I grew up on comics. So I do know my head and 3rd base.
This film SHOULD have been! It should be a "can't miss" film. The acting is stupendous! The castChristian Bale...Bruce WayneGary Oldman...Commissioner GordonTom Hardy...BaneJoseph Gordon-Levitt...BlakeAnne Hathaway...SelinaMarion Cotillard...MirandaMorgan Freeman...FoxMichael Caine...AlfredMatthew Modine...Foley
re all excellent in their roles. Morgan Freeman and Michael Caince deserve an oscar! Their roles were that GOOD. But good is something the film is not. Slow , lackluster and lethargic describe it. The story is terrble. The screenplay is terrible. The directing is ,well, you know. Thr music is good, as always, and it sets the mood. but the film never delivers. DC should have handed the story, thescript and the direction over to Frank Miller. It would have gotten an R rating then, but it would have been GOOD! As is I would it a 3 or possibly 4 out of 10. No---3.
Musically I'm liking all the 25 and 69 cent downloads Amazon is having. And a number of Albums are $2.99. Sure some are older. But great music is great music. It's Summertime here where i am.Put some Summer jams into your player. And for a sweet price!
Lastly, I'm tired of hearing about next gen systems. People, the gen we have now is fine. The games are still challenging enough.they are still fun. But greedy companies (software companies) want the next gen so they can charge confiscatory prices to the gamers. Prices YOU can't afford.Neither can I Sony and Microsoft don't want them. They are going to lose money on consoles. And it will be a few years until they start making enough in software sales to offset the costs of the console. In his heart of hearts, you can be sure jack Tretton is in no hurry to rush a PS4 to market.
People, be happy with what you have. Howevec, there is an inherant flaw of human nature. People will never be happy with what they have. The big 3 could release a virtual reality consoles tomorrow and gamers would want--demand more. They would demand to be warped to the actual location of the game itself. (Should that be possible)
The world ecomomy is not doing well. Unemploymext and consumer confidense is near an all time low. Evcen the rich are saving more, in preparation for possib;e bad days to come. Not the best time to be thinking of bringing out next gen systems.
Lastly I leave you with this: (and The Pervy Sage from Naruto, Jiraiya would like these!!!!!!!!)
Lindsay Ellingson for Victoria's Secret
And lastly, Adriana Lima for Victoria's Secret
Take care and God Bless.
