Gods and Generals: Director's Cut

Has anyone seen the Time magazine special edition for the 150th anniversary? I picked it up but haven't had the chance to read it yet (I'm sure it'll be more revisionist history, just like their normal magazine issue a few weeks back that I read, replete with a photoshopped Lincoln with tears--how sad!), but the back does have a preview of the Gods and Generals director's cut. Apparently Gettysburg is also part of the release. And on the Fourth of July! Friggin' patriotic, it is!

I'm so excited! I can't wait! So Amazon now has it on their site, and for only $55.99, I think that's a fair deal for this spiffy set. Seeing as I paid around $25.00 for the TRON: Legacy special edition...twice that is well worth it for Gods and Generals. I didn't think Gettysburg was amazing, but still good, yes. I'll probably be putting them into my Amazon store in the near future.

Who else is getting pumped?

P.S. Is anyone interested in a review of Time's little article? I read it just today (I know, it's a few weeks late now) and along with it's South-hating, it included a snub directed at Gods and Generals (for allegedly perpetuating the "Lost Cause").

The Birth Certificate

I'm sorry I've been absent lately. I'm still dealing with before-spoken personal issues, so have been concentrating on that.

I was going to post article links as usual, but there are simply too many. I hope I've trained my readers well--I'm confident you can find the information (from good sources) on your own.

All I can say is, after so long, even ignoring all the issues with the document, do you really think I'm that stupid? Of course it's a forgery! (Trump deserves great credit for this, yes, but does anyone realize that Jerome Corsi's book Where's the Birth Certificate? is soon to be released?)

Yup, that's right. I'm a conspiracy-theorizing, right-wing extremist, terrorist radical. But you know what? I don't care.

I refuse to not call out this fraudulent administration! You aren't eligible for my great country's highest office. As a citizen of the United States of America, I am compelled to demand that you resign!

My Favorite Movies

Screw stressing out, I'm having a fun post today.

As time has progressed, I've been able to have more than just five favorite movies. So let's try to come up with my top ten list, shall we?


Gods and Generals
Tae Guk Gi: The Brotherhood of War
The Dark Knight
Batman Begins
TRON: Legacy
Patton
Red Dawn
Taken


You might see that that's only eight. So allow me to ask for my reader's help on this one. What two should go next, out of The Book of Eli, The Replacement Killers, or Saving Private Ryan? One must be cut! I'm tempted to cut SPR, because I only like the battle scenes and don't care for the middle parts (characters are ridiculous, plot is shoddy and boring).

This list would look very different if certain movies had not had objectionable content (whether it be sex, nudity or false religious messages). Somewhere on this list might have been films like The Matrix (false religious themes), The Matrix Reloaded (sex and more of the same as the first film), Blade Runner (was that one nude shot really necessary?), Equilibrium (less content rather than insidious anti-Christian intent from director Kurt Wimmer), The Road Warrior (in such a world rape makes sense, but do I have to see her naked dead body?), and et cetera. But content is content! I will not endorse what I do not believe. And heck, even some of my "favorites" are near-sketchy (TRON, anyone? Programs can be equal with humans? *spits*).

To see some other ones I really liked, check out my Amazon store.

Have any of you seen these movies? Did you like them, or no? What are some of your favorites? Discuss, discuss, discuss!

The American Redoubt

Rawles further outlines his philosophy on this topic (you may remember my post a little bit back on this idea).

Remember that Rawles is a genius in his field, a true warrior, and a brother in Christ. He's also on the government black-list.

...which means that perhaps I am, too.

Beck vs. Huck P2 - To at least be fair to Huckabee...

...see this article. I may not be a true Beck follower, but Huckabee's comments about Beck's "conspiracy theories" and his lack of foresight on Michelle Obama's "war" on obesity do not sit well with me.

I'm not going to "side" with either one...but Beck's mind machinations seem to be more like man than Huckabee's. (On a side-note, this all smells like politics, doesn't it? I wonder if Beck has his eyes on the White House...but so far I see little reason to surmise such.)

Beck Derides Huckabee as 'Progressive'

While all my readers should know by now that I have more than one issue with Beck's ideas, he's got some points here you should definitely hear--all good reasons not to vote for Mike Huckabee if he runs again.

So what I want to know is, who else besides me wants to go dig up and reanimate George Washington? Zombie Washington 2012!

Obama doesn't like being cornered, eh?

Hmm, well well well....

The Plan to Take Over Your Food

Don't laugh, it's happening all over. Check this out.

Should you think that this is a well-intentioned attempt to better "The little children, for the chiillldreennn!!!", then take a look at this. One, they don't take the matter of proper eating at all seriously, and two, if it means forcing junk food on your child, they will do that as well.

And if you haven't yet heard of this, it's been going on for a while.

Personally, I am very serious about eating healthy and providing my body with the best material for it to run on. I haven't eaten chocolate, candy, or sweets in a good seven or eight years, and soda in a decade or more. But this is my freedom to choose this kind of lifestyle--if I want to eat Snickers, Ho-Hos, and smoke and drink all day long, then that is my right as well! Heck, if I want to huff bird poop before breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and then do it again before bed, that is my right, too! It's not an issue of health; it's an issue of control. Control the food, and you're just one step closer to controlling the people who eat that food. Miniplenty, anyone?

Am I the only one who has a problem with the fact that our meat, fruits, vegetables, and just about everything else we buy are jacked up with all manner of hormones, pesticides, and chemicals? Even public water supplies can contain loads of crud (I know mine does). It isn't at all about what is good for us. It's about what they want in us.

Who's to say there won't be a day when they put a mysterious new drug into your food...a drug that makes you....

Brady Campaign's new add

To kill a lot of people, fast? Isn't that the point?

Last time I checked, gangs were made up of multiple punks, Al-Qaeda has lots and lots of terrorists, and coyotes hunt in packs...all good reasons to have lots and lots of bullets!

Better yet, as the blogger put it perfectly: because it's our right. To anyone who would attempt to strip me of this right, I am compelled to command:

Stand down!

Sixth Senses

I was thinking on this subject a bit tonight, just in passing mental reference, and it just reminded me of the other night.

Last week, I went outside late at night to do some business (my usual darkness rounds--you know, slaughter chickens, hunt goblins, and munch on raw, undead trolls and such), and as soon as I stepped outside, I knew something just wasn't right. I could feel it.


I carry a big Maglite with me, because it's pure pitch around my grounds. Covers the fighting stick and illumination problems all at once. So somehow I get the feeling nothing's too bad (as in, I continued without worrying). It was something in nature that was wrong. It wasn't another human, it wasn't something along those lines; it was the animals...or, something. I could tell that something wasn't right with the local nature. I scanned about, also, as is usual. I found a rabbit...hmm, ok, perhaps nothing is wrong? (Like common small prey animals, they make themselves scarce when there is an "event.") I found a black mass around a corner--the local black cat, which is quite possibly a bi-polar cat. (I try to encourage it to take care of the rodents and such, but we've had a testy relationship ever since he scratched me once.) He ran away, rather skittishly, rather unusual--I tried to get him to come back (sometimes he will for me, sometimes he won't--again, I told you he was bipolar). So, perhaps it was all just me. I went about my business.

Something was still wrong...I just couldn't place it, prove it, or anything of the sort. So when all was said and done, I again passed by the corner the cat was hiding in prior...and lo and behold, I saw something where the cat had been sitting. I stepped closer, and shone the light.

A dead, mangled corpse...of a squirrel. A fresh kill...barely eaten, with head nearly severed, organs, especially stomach, hanging out. And a small lizard, inches away.

I had interrupted the cat's kill, which is why it behaved abnormally (even for an abnormal feline). What's more, I had found what was "wrong"--the fresh squirrel kill was surely enough to make habitually nervous little animals on edge. Perhaps what was "wrong" was with the local squirrel population (which is large, let me tell you)--they'd just lost one of their own to a violent death, not common for my little squirrel clan. This, understandably, put them on edge.

I still don't know how, or why, but sometimes, just sometimes, I can sense the strangest things.

April 9th, 1865

It's getting (in three days) to be the 150th anniversary of the start of the Civil War, and the lessons that we can learn from that illuminated portion of our history are more important than ever.

But for now it's simply the anniversary of end of the war (Lee's surrender in '65) and thus I present you with a rather humorous story to commemorate.

Winnie the Pooh is disturbing....

Maybe it's just me, and I understand that this is just a well-intentioned attempt to make the figure more posable than past Pooh representations have been, but all I see is this freakish monster that is really quite disturbing.

Anyone else feel the same way?

Spencer

P.S. Never did I before believe that Winnie the Pooh would make it onto my blog....
