Happy Birthday Mr. Cash!

Well, you wonder why I always dress in black,
Why you never see bright colors on my back,
And why does my appearance seem to have a somber tone.
Well, there's a reason for the things that I have on.

I wear the black for the poor and the beaten down,
Livin' in the hopeless, hungry side of town,
I wear it for the prisoner who has long paid for his crime,
But is there because he's a victim of the times.

I wear the black for those who never read,
Or listened to the words that Jesus said,
About the road to happiness through love and charity,
Why, you'd think He's talking straight to you and me.

Well, we're doin' mighty fine, I do suppose,
In our streak of lightnin' cars and fancy clothes,
But just so we're reminded of the ones who are held back,
Up front there ought 'a be a Man In Black.

I wear it for the sick and lonely old,
For the reckless ones whose bad trip left them cold,
I wear the black in mournin' for the lives that could have been,
Each week we lose a hundred fine young men.

And, I wear it for the thousands who have died,
Believen' that the Lord was on their side,
I wear it for another hundred thousand who have died,
Believen' that we all were on their side.

Well, there's things that never will be right I know,
And things need changin' everywhere you go,
But 'til we start to make a move to make a few things right,
You'll never see me wear a suit of white.

Ah, I'd love to wear a rainbow every day,
And tell the world that everything's OK,
But I'll try to carry off a little darkness on my back,
'Till things are brighter, I'm the Man In Black.

- Johnny Cash

Once upon a time...

Testing testing, 1, 2, 3. Yes. Still alive. I really should start posting again.

Google Calendar

I must have this! :)

Google Calendar: "In combination with the kit, you can receive a new type of notification from Google Calendar, called the 'wake up' notification. This notification is relentless in ensuring your timely awakening from restful slumber.

The 'wake up' notification uses several progressively more annoying alerts to wake you up. First it will send an SMS message to your phone. If that fails, more coercive means will be used. The kit includes an industrial-sized bucket and is designed to be connected to your water main for automatic filling. In addition, a bed-flipping device is included for forceful removal from your sleeping quarters. Learn more"

There's still hope in this world!

Nowadays, with all the craziness that's happening in my life, there are just a couple of special things that make me come back to my humble little blog. THIS is one of those special things. A TV spot for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Nope, is not the teaser, which I think it sucked big time. The teaser almost made me lost my freedom and made me want to curse Spielberg and Lucas (and cursing Spielberg is something I've never done). But this... this little TV spot. Just a couple of seconds to restore the magic and the belief that someone as F**ing COOL and AWESOME as Indiana Jones is still around. In case you haven't seen it, rejoice with it now. May your lives be filled with hope. Amen.

How many times can one return from the grave?

I'm not dead. At least not yet. It's been months and months since I last wrote, and to be honest, even though I didn't have much time, I made quite a difference. Does anyone even reads this? Who knows. Yet, I still don't know if I write it for myself or for the world. (I guess that if it was just for myself I would buy a diary with Hello Kitty on the cover and get done with it). Who knows why we act the way we act. Anyway, the question is, what is so important that is making me write again.
Maybe it was pride. Mr. Marshmallow was just saying that this blog was officially dead.
I hate when it's not ME who decides when something's dead or not (in this case, my blog).

Do I make any sense at all? Probably not.

ANYWAY, in short, what has made me write again? The fact that I just saw Justice League: the new frontier, and it totally kicks ass. Why? Because it's just like the comic book. Oh, if only people would learn from that. (yeah, Death of Superman made me cry- but not in a good way).

The other reason would be the new poster for James Bond's next movie: Quantum of solace. I love it. Yeah, after all these years Bond still rules.

And last, but not least, I'm way way way excited about the new Indy movie. And the teaser that will be out next week (Feb 14th). I trust Spielberg... I know he won't disappoint me. He won't destroy my hero.

Yet, it seems like a sensible idea to start building a bazooka, just in case.

Besides that, all quiet on the front. I'm still as confused and clueless about life as always, exhausted, and I often wonder if I'll even get that peace of mind which I had so long ago, when things seemed more simple.

Who knows, right? As they say, only time will tell.

Let us pray, sinners!

What would make Ms. Mysterious come back from death? What would make your humble, yet magnificent leader stop enjoying her days of leisure? Well, duh, of course these two pictures. Watching Harrison Ford, all dressed up as Indy, watching Heath Ledger being a psycho, creepy Joker, just as it should be, brings a tear to my eye. *sob*. Life's good sometimes. I'll keep on praying every night though, pray 'till I have no strength left, till they hear me all the way to the heavens... You can all join me. *ahem* Please God, don't let Spielberg pull a Lucas with Indy 4. Don't destroy my heroes once more. Amen. Oh and don't let the Joker destroy with a stupid gun the batplane. It just doesn't make sense. Give him a missile next time. Double amen.

Ms. Mysterious in shock!

Ollie is getting married!

(this won't make a lick of sense to pretty much anyone, but I'm sure that she'll explain)
