So, something silly that I just love is that the movie, Kick-Ass, that is supposedly coming out sometime later this year, is coming out when the first arc in the comic isn't even over yet. Now, I love Kick-Ass and think it is an amazing comic. Sure, it isn't subtle, just like everything else Millar does, but that doesn't mean it is bad. Hitting you across the face like a ton of bricks is good for what he is doing. Having a subtle story wouldn't work nearly as well. Hopefully, Kick-Ass will finish its first arc before the movie comes out and that the story will end with a nice finish with bloodshed and people getting brutally eviscerated. Mmm, evisceration...

And hopefully, the movie will live up to the comic in both fun and brutality, so that there is a nice, bloody comic movie that isn't Blade.

Ha, a new post so soon after saying I wouldn't be doing many more posts this summer. Still, this is something that has been really annoying.

Looking up the word "terrorism", the first definition that popped up was:
1. the use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, esp. for political purposes.

Okay, so that seems simple enough, right? Now, I don't like getting political, but I think I'm going to have to. No matter how you feel about abortion, I think you should believe it is wrong that Dr. George Tiller was murdered a short time ago. He provided late abortions, and was one of three doctors in the US who did, and for what he did, was shot by a radical anti-abortion agent. Now, whatever my personal beliefs about abortion, I believe murder, for any cause, is wrong. If I believed that Tiller was murdering babies (which I don't), that would be wrong, but it doesn't make it right to kill him. Especially since the law is on his side. Now, let's look at that word again: terrorism. Since September 11, 2001, there has been a lot of talk about terrorism. The radical Al Qaeda members and other groups from the Middle East have tried to intimidate the US and the West in general, in order to further their own agendas. The current look of "terrorist" in our minds is a robed, turban-wearing, Arabic man, with a beard, who uses suicide bombs to kill innocent people in order to get into heaven and have lots of virgins waiting. But, that isn't the only terrorist around. There are also home-grown terrorists. The radical anti-abortion people used violence in this case, and lots of threats in others, to intimidate and coerce the pro-choice movement into stopping giving abortions to women who do not want to have children. Very simply, what they are doing is terrorism. They are terrorizing the men and women who, obeying the law, have been providing their services in performing abortions. Basically, the radical anti-abortion movement are terrorists, in using threats and violence to get their way and terrorizing people who have different beliefs. Whether or not you believe that abortion is wrong or right, at least try and see that murder and terrorism aren't the best way to get what you want.

Summer updates are horrible with me, and I know this. Partly, it comes from me just not being at my computer as much, and also, it comes from just doing other things, because I have more time. Plus, with friends, I can discuss my feelings with them, and I'm not as obligated to go to the internet to share my thoughts. Plus, I now have a job, which will take a lot of my time, so over the summer, don't expect much. There might be some stuff, but definitely not on a regular basis, at any rate. I still am picking up every Deadpool issue that comes out, and I have to say that Deadpool 11 was awesome.

Garfunkel and Oates

Thanks to my dad watching "Sex With Ducks", a song by Garfunkel and Oates, I've been introduced to the duo and they are amazing. They are a folk-comedy duo, singing ridiculously funny songs. Now, be warned, they do have swearing in their songs, so if that offends you, I wouldn't recommend listening to them. Below is the short film "Imaginary Larry" which stars Garfunkel and Oates. It has some songs in it, and it is kind of weird.
