Hypocrite (New Poem) 2/16/12

What the hell am I doing?  
I need to be out doing things instead of 
sitting here in front of the computer.  
What a fucking hypocrite.  
Here I am sitting down in a chair, drinking wine, 
listening to music, and looking at stuff on the computer. 
While my butt and legs go numb (tingling feeling, 
pins and needles). Damn it, I need to get up. 
But it's three o' clock in the morning.  
What's the point in getting up now.  
I say to myself as I pour another glass of wine.

Star Wars: Episode One in 3D (Mini-Blog Essay)

Darth Maul
A few days ago I saw "The Phantom Menace" in 3-D.  It was awesome.  Although it is not my favorite "Star Wars" movie the 3-D version did make the movie much more enjoyable to watch.  They did change thank goodness the puppet Yoda in the original version with a much better CGI Yoda so it now looks normal again.  However Jar-Jar Binks is still annoying as ever and the Pod race drags on and on and just seeing Anakin as a young boy saying things like "Yippee" and stuff like that is still a little different, but I realize that you have to start somewhere.  
If you look past all the slight complaints I will say that the 3-D effects blend in well with the movie.  Things seem to have more depth to it (well duh, isn't that the whole point) yes but some movies are in 3-D just to be in 3-D or to show off some kind of gimmick.  "The Phantom Menace" in 3-D just adds something more to the whole movie experience.  Certain scenes in the movie are just brilliant to watch and you get that "Oooooh-Aahhh" feeling while watching it.  I noticed when Darth Maul is on screen they added some new background music kind of like a fierce or menacing (pun intended) chanting like sound which I thought was great.  Overall it was really cool to watch "The Phantom Menace" in 3-D, I can't wait for the other movies in the saga to come out.  Out of all the movies coming out in 3-D recently  the "Star Wars" movies are perfect for this kind of format.  So if you haven't seen it yet go ahead and make some plans to see it before it's too late.

Epiphany (New Poem) 2/6/12

Another epiphany.
Another chance to make it happen....this time.
Time to break out of the old habits of familiar 
excuses and worn out rants and ramblings.
Time to make things fun and less complicated.
Time to dream again.
Time to wake up again.
The time is now again.
Or is this just another empty promise 
disguised as another epiphany....again.  

Ego (New Poem) 2/3/12

It's not about me anymore.
Let that part go.
The e-g-o.
Is that even possible?
Yes, I think so.
Oops, I meant to say.
Yes, yes it is possible.
Remember there is no "I" in ego.
If it was then it would be spelled like "i-g-o" and that just doesn't sound right does it.
