The usual surprises, the usual favoritism and the usual you-gotta-hand-it-to-thems. It’s never boring. There were a shit load of films in 2012. A freaking bonafide honest-to-God feast. This is the Oscars. My favorite Award show!

Of things that are beautiful

images

Have you ever witnessed the birth of a child?
A fragile babe thrust violently into our vile world?
One more innocent one stained by the first lungful of air
Such a beautiful thing it is, still

Have you ever smelt the morning dew on leaves, so mild?
Or the glint in an infant’s eye, lovingly hurled
Even though it would be fair game to a hungry bear
Such a beautiful thing it is still

Have you ever listened to the calmness of a small stream?
Even as it never ceases in readiness to drown our little lad
It brims with sustenance for us and sustenance for our sustenance
And such a beautiful thing it is still

Have you ever dreamt a good dream?
The kind you promptly forget you had
But a careless smile lingers upon your countenance
It’s such a beautiful thing still

Have you ever tasted the bone marrow of deer?
Even though you still see the fierce light in its eyes
Without remorse, only gratitude, you plunge your knife
It’s a beautiful thing still

Have you ever felt the mix of hope and fear?
As you gaze upon the woman with whom all your love lies
And you ask her to be your wife
And with conviction, she says no.
That’s the most terrible thing of all.

Just found this awesome blog and this awesome post. May be reblogging a lot of what’s on there

You Are Not So Smart

The Misconception: You take randomness into account when determining cause and effect.

The Truth: You tend to ignore random chance when the results seem meaningful or when you want a random event to have a meaningful cause.

Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy were both presidents of the United States, elected 100 years apart. Both were shot and killed by assassins who were known by three names with 15 letters, John Wilkes Booth and Lee Harvey Oswald, and neither killer would make it to trial.

Spooky, huh? It gets better.

Lincoln had a secretary named Kennedy, and Kennedy had a secretary named Lincoln.

They were both killed on a Friday while sitting next to their wives, Lincoln in the Ford Theater, Kennedy in a Lincoln made by Ford.

Both men were succeeded by a man named Johnson – Andrew for Lincoln and Lyndon for Kennedy. Andrew was born in 1808. Lyndon in…

Remembering 9-11

September 11 was the most shocking event I have ever been alive to see. When the Nigerian dictator, Sani Abacha, died, that was a close second. Theories abound about what really happened on 9-11 and who really is responsible for all those deaths. Falsehood will not outrun truth forever. All will be made bare one day. But this is not a time for politics and theories or any of that. Let’s spare a moment and contemplate the manner of evil and loss that happened on that day. We should never forget.

Succumbing to vanity

Let’s be honest. It’s some kinda weird vanity that would make anyone wanna write things down and solicit/expect people to read it and what is worse, actually enjoy it. Especially when it’s not some kinda window into the secrets of the universe. At best, it will bring about the usual ‘LOL’ and the occasional ‘LMAO’ and the odd “LMFAOOOOOOOOOO”. I have decided whether I like it or not, I will permit myself this one guilty pleasure. I have given up sex and other pleasures of life. Why can I not blog? No! I must. And I will.

I cannot assure you the absolute best time on here but I can assure you a WTF moment everytime. Welcome.
