Last night after watching the so-so third installment of Matrix, I had bad gas pain.
I hadn't had that in a long time . . . the kind where you want to release your gas, but it just won't happen.
There was a change in my demeanor . . . I was happy to have had this discomfort begin after the movie was finished.
Today, I am mellow. I'm grateful for my wonderful friends and family members. I give thanks for my Heidi, who has been a tireless positive force in my year of confusion. I give thanks for all of the wonderful times I've shared with people, even if it was merely a conversation with a stranger in Arkansas, about gambling, and the best games to play at a casino.
I found out more information about Tupac's self-biography. I think I want to see that when it opens.
I can't stress this enough . . . listen to yourself. You're not going to be a better person by a larger bank account, nor will you climb the heights of enlightenment by merely following the advice of another person.
We have free will for a reason.
Right now, I am happy for my life.
i heard the ending was like an ending where something else was bound to happen. I found out more information about Tupac's self-biography. I think I want to see that when it opens. thats funny! <3
Well, Tupac . . .
I didn't really listen to a lot of his stuff . . .
However, I do have his 1st appearance on Digital Underground's 'Same Song' EP.
I did watch him in Juice and some of his other films . . . he was a pretty good actor.
'Keep yo head up' is a great song.
He's interesting like Cobain is in terms of his complexity and his messages.
haha yeah he's very talented out of all rappers he truly had the gift of Rhyme the stuff he threw [flow] was great and the fact that it's a mystery is even better!
Oh, and if you're into the Matrix movies, you may be disappointed by this one. The plot and scenes are sloppily constructed from the script. They did a great job of glitzing up the whole film, but the movie's lacking a lil' bit from the first effort. It is pretty good though . . . it does have some great scenes and finally makes Zion a place where you care whether the humans survive or not.
Perhaps the Matrix film induced gasolia. I don't know. I make no claims to be any kind of actual medical doctor but I am known to prescribe a large glass of water often. It helps most things if you aren't dying from them.
I agree with your statement about enlightenment. Improbably, my high school motto was, "alius alia via ad astra ascendit" which means, "Each finds his own way to the stars." I have taken this very literally and highly figuratively depending on the occasion, but boy, as high school mottos go, I got the best one. Yay for Great Britain!
It's possible, but ultimately I had gas attack from the general under-the-weather nature I'd been bouting with all week.
I am a believer in opportunity and taking it. I never was able to find Heidi . . . we just stumbled upon each other . . . overall, I'm much happier and less cynical than I was before her . . . if you can imagine a more cynical me. :D
I plan to bring a puke bucket... why do I put myself through the pain of seeing films that I know are going to piss me off. oh well you think I would have learned from the second one. Thank the gods for the upcoming LOTR. I know thats gonna be good.
Yes . . . I think that just may be a good one, LOTR 3.
I absolutely hated the first one. I know Jackson's a great filmmaker . . . but Tolkien's story I have never been able to attempt. It's way to steeped in its own juices for its own good in a way . . . kind of like the difference between Star Wars (not the books and the rest of the stuff besides the films) and Star Trek.
Star Trek, like LOTR, is a world too reliant on its own rules, not entirely dependent on inherent humanity and rules of the empirical right and wrong.
I guess people loved that first one if they loved . . . Tolkien's books. I begrudgingly watched the 2nd one when my mom rented it . . . and I did like the 2nd one. Less scenery shots and hobbit-intensive, more of a well-rounded story with true conflicts explored.
I swore after the first LOTR that I'd never watch any more of them . . . in fact, I screamed after the special midnight showing of LOTR 1, "I WANT MY MONEY BACK!!!!" to the horror of quite a few people in the theatre. However, I guess we're not final on all thoughts . . . I've since changed my tune. :D
