WATCHING MOVIES: Passchendaele

Warning: IRONY used herein
I find the funny thing about the movie is that there is barely any fighting. I have a acquaintance who saw the movie on his own (meaning no one forced him to; most of the audience of this movie will be history classes) and was quite disappointed to find that in addition to seeing a man put a knife the middle of another guys head he had to endure the torture of two hours of love scenes and not even sex scenes, romance scenes complete with corny ("Let me paint you a picture, a man is riding on a horse.."), while I, someone who will happily go Julia Roberts movies in first run engagements for fun, went to Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, in the coming attractions thought Australia looked slightly good, was sad to miss The Women in its theatrical run and would not watch the SAW films for my life must endure the sight of a hand coming out of the middle of someone's mouth. No one wins!

Writing thought

I was writing and I noticed something. The music you listen to really has an effect on your writing. I was listening to Bach and I wrote a quiet scene about plants then I listened to Spring Awakening and I wrote about love.

Babar and Bob Barr

A few weeks ago, I heard about a u.s. school's vote in the U.S where Obama got 130 votes, McCain got 40 and Babar got 4. I thought, oh, four kids put in a write in vote for the children's character Babar until I learned it was the independent candidate Bob Barr.

On Tuesday, November 4th, 2008 at approximately 8:49 PM, I posted on this blog that Barrack Obama would win the presidency. At that point, he had 102 electoral votes with McCain behind at 33. But I knew then that he would win. I could just feel it.
To be honest, I had decided this a day earlier when I saw how on Twitter, Obama had something like a million followers while McCain had something like a few thousand.
When I talked to people about this election on Tuesday before the results were announced, I said that if Obama lost, it would be an incomprehensible moment.
Luckily it didn't happen.
When McCain came up to give his concession speech, I could not believe the moment. I could not believe that it was happening.
Even in Canada, watching CBC, on a television that uses an antenna, miles and miles away from the two candidates. It was a great moment.
Looking back at the 2000 election, it was amazing to see the Republicans accept thier loss. There were no fights. Hey, Obama even won Florida.
When Obama stepped out to give his acceptance speech, in the crowd in Chicago. Many were crying with the impotence of this moment.
What I have said to a lot of people while watching this election is "We are living in a historical moment. In 100 years, this will be studied in schools as an amazing moment in history"
Not that it was all great, California voted Preposition 8, which bans gay marriage, through. That is something to be very sad about. For those who disagree with me about the importance of marriage to homosexual families, watch this film.

But we can still rejoice that now America has an African American (and more importent democrat) president.

Preposition 8 passed.

I just will say that it makes me sad that it has come to this
. An America that even on the eve of electing a black president is still so bigoted.
