Food for the People. [Nov. 6th, 2003|05:00 pm]

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.

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
