Well we here at LOV are up to 650 posts. Probably 100 fantastic posts, 150 shitty posts and 400 good posts. I'm not sure if 650 is a milestone that should be celebrated, but it is something, and something is better than nothing. Unless of course that something sucks so bad that you'd rather have nothing. But I digress, let's talk about things that are on Tem's mind. And by talk about I mean I am going to type it out and you are going to skim over it or just outright skip it and then read the movie review. I know how you all are. I'm on to you.
Hoffman to the Mess soon, write it down. In pencil though because I might, just might be wrong. It has happened before. Just ask anyone that knows me.
College Basketball started. Duke crushed some tiny ass school that nobody had ever heard of until yesterday. Does anyone know if there are any good games this weekend? I doubt it, but maybe. Sometimes those early season tournaments have great games. Of course I don't know when these early season tournaments are this year. I could look it up, but I won't.
OK that's all the sports talk I have in me today, let's talk about random stuff.
TV Show Idea: Before I write this part out, mark my words someone is going to steal this idea, it will happen. I think when that happens I'll get all uppity and ask them to pay off my student loans, I'd call that a fair trade. Anyway, on to the TV show idea. The show centers around 1 character at 3 points in his life. Part of the time he'll be like 17 or something, part of the time he will be in his mid 20s and part of the time he will be in his 40s. It'll be like 3 shows in one. If you want to make it a sitcom think That 70s Show plus Friends plus Frasier. If you want to make it a drama think Dawson's Creek plus Ed plus West Wing. Obviously Tem does not watch many dramas I don't have a good drama comparison for you. (Tem watched Ed though, great show, a comedy drama, but a drama nonetheless) Anyway, I'm pretty sure the show will fail because people will get confused about the whole "same dude/chick at 3 points in his/her life" but this show would be better than half of the crap they are pushing. And as far as I know it is an original idea. So hopefully some Hollywood type person reads this and sells my idea and then pays off my student loans, or gives me lots of money or something. The more likely outcome is that one someone tells me that this concept has been done and failed.
Computer Nerd product: OK here is a computer nerd product. Something should do a line of flash drives that doubles as jewelry. Like have a cross necklace that has a flash drive in it. Or a bracelet or something with one it it. I see all the computer dorks carrying around flash drives and then forgetting them places. If they were wearing their flash drive they wouldn't forget it. Also I hear people say "damn if only I had a flash drive on me" well if they were wearing their Jesus on a Cross/Flash Drive necklace they'd have one. (So this already exists. Then change my idea to a hat that doubles as an umbrella....what? already exists too?? Fuck it.)
Time for a Movie Review:
Holy Moly is this movie a Debbie Downer of Christmas movies. This is perhaps the saddest movie of all time. It centers around this little kid who has terminal cancer. He finds out on Christmas Eve that he has 3 years to live. So basically the kid has 4 Christmases left in his life. I told you it was a Debbie Downer of a movie.
So the first Christmas is all about being sad that the kid is gonna die and pretty much totally sucks. The mom and dad have to break the news to all the rest of the family, who take it really hard and the kid basically doesn't care because he doesn't understand.
By the second Christmas the kid is pretty much getting it and he is sad as hell. The family does their best to help him through it, but really what can you do?
The third Christmas is where the kid has his moment of realization that he only has a year or so left and he better make the most of it so he does all the stuff he always wanted to do...which for a 10 year old mostly revolves around video games and cartoons.
Around the time of the fourth Christmas the kid is basically on his death bed and might not even make it to Christmas. Everyone is sad, but the kid has accepted his fate, tells everyone not to worry and that he is going to go hang out with Jesus at Jesus' birthday party in Heaven. The little kid dies at 12:01 on Christmas day and everyone is sad.
0 out of 5 helmet stickers. Saddest movie ever. No hilarity ensued and no hell broke lose. Nobody can watch this movie and not cry.
