I am rather pleased with the title of my blog entry for today.
- First, I have removed the “Digg This” button from my individual blog posts as not one single person ever used it. The master button remains. StumbleUpon buttons also remain as sometimes a kind soul takes a liking to what I’ve said and decided to share it. Digg has become a wasteland and it’s time I wash my hands of it.
- The infamous Fred Phelps of the Westboro Baptist Church is picketing Jerry Falwell’s funeral according to a Fox News article. Apparently Mr. Phelps (the “God Hates ….” guy) thinks Falwell was far too liberal. No, I am not making this up. As stated in dozens of online news reports: The Westboro Baptist Church says it intends to state a protest at the funeral of Rev. Jerry Falwell. The funeral will be Tuesday at the Thomas Road Baptist Church, the church Falwell founded, in Lynchburg, Virginia. On its Web site, Westboro says it will “preach” outside the funeral “of the corpulent false prophet Jerry Falwell, who spent his entire life prophesying lies and false doctrines like ‘God loves everyone.'” I have previously blogged the joyful passing of Mr. Falwell, but let the record show, I’d rather have Falwell than Phelps. Phelps make Falwell and Robertson look like raging liberals. They are all hateful bastards and I’m sure I shall have the opportunity to spit in their face when I meet them in Hell. Ain’t none of us going to heaven.
- Today I saw Shrek The Third with Adrian, Pablo, and Timmy. My sister did a no show. I would love to tell you how the third movie was better than either the first or the second. The only thing I can say was it was a fast paced movie, and was (happily) over in around 90 minutes. This film will not win any awards, unless there’s a category for unnecessary sequels. Sure, it had its moments, but generally speaking it just didn’t do a whole lot for me. The animation was utterly fantastic — the humans were realistic, which is considered the holy grail of animation. You could believe the characters were real. Unfortunately, they spent all their time on the animation and the clever jokes, forgetting any bit of reasonable plot. And they skimped on the music, a hallmark of the previous Shrek films. I just can’t recommend this movie at current prices to anyone. Wait for it to hit the dollar theatre.
