The best change is no change

June 17, 2008

In an article from the BBC it is reported that a small village called Voinesti in Romania has just elected a dead man for office.  Apparently the town was so loyal to their mayor Neculai Ivascu that they voted for him for reelection with full knowledge that he was dead.

That’s loyalty.

The electoral commission decided that since the elect was deceased the runner-up would win the election.  Neculai Ivascu’s party will be contesting the decision.

We must stop M. Night Shyamalan!

I had a bit of time left on my lunch break to chill, so I thought I’d head over to Rotten Tomatoes and check out how the newer summer flicks were doing with the critics.  My eyes immediately homed in on M. Night Shyamalan’s new movie The Happening.  I was not surprised to find that this vaguely-named conglomeration of horror was rated horribly low.

In my humble opinion, Rotten Tomatoes has always been an excellent thermometer for movie quality, especially if you look at the top critics percentage.  So let us examine Shyamalan’s progress in movie making over time using Rotten Tomatoes as our standard, shall we?

 

We can see that Shyamalan started off very well for himself in The Sixth Sense with a smashing 84%.  It fell for Unbreakable.  Then, in what looks like hope for redemption, Signs increased.  Continuing on, we see nothing but what I would like to classify as “bad.” I believe someone needs to stop Shyamalan before his projects crash into the low teen percentages. 

 

Welp, I guess this just goes to show you that if you ever succeed in something, retire.  Am I right?

Back to work…

John Locke- the New John Locke?

June 10, 2008

Recently Christine and I have taken up the task to plow through Lost.  We recently finished up season one like gangbusters, and in the process I have found this media binge to be one of the most fruitful endeavors I have ever embarked on.

Mainly because of this guy:

John Locke can do anything.

Not to be confused with this guy:

John Locke Imposter

He is the new island version of McGyver.

Let me outline his virtues for you:

  • He hunts boar with only a hunting knife, and does so with gusto.
  • If given the appropriate amount of stress and plane crashes, he is able to overcome disability.
  • He smiles a lot.
  • No one can tell him what he can’t do.
  • He’s good with children.

But seriosuly- I haven’t found a character I’ve enjoyed watching this much since Bobby.

Sorry, guys. Turns out Ima Cylon.

How embarassing…

It makes sense, though.  Remember all those times I woke up sopping wet with a gun in my hands?  Remember that time I tried to kill Admiral Odama?

Actually, it’s not that embarassing once I think about it.  I can’t be labeled deficient in any way.  I was simply placed as a sleeper agent to overthrow all of humanity.  I’m simply programed to erradicate humans and their poor decisions.  Not my fault.

And besides, now I can control computers with my mind.

Plus I’ll never die.

Cheers!
