God I'm scared...

Every fiber of my being wants the new "Halloween" movie which is slated for release in the near future to be good. I think it is well established territory that John Carpenter's original film is one of my all time favourites. I just know this movie is going to suck, and that makes me sad. Just check out the poster. Ehhh...

See this NOW....

Last night me and The Showmen took in one of the best movies I have seen in a long time. If you love video games, as I am sure many of my readers do then you MUST see this movie. If you don't like video games you still need to see this movie. It is fantastic! The entire audience cheered and applauded at the end. What a great film. Here's the trailer...

A Good Day

Yesterday was a weird day. I went to bed tired and spent but oddly content. I let go of a few things that I might have been holding on to for a bit too long. I gained a bit of perspective, and I feel like a few weights have been lifted. Hooray!

Ah Good Memories

Remember Bisons Games here?

One for the record books...

So I am now a world record holder. This Tuesday, I joined 1377 other guitar players in Chicago's Wells Park for the "World's Largest Music Lesson" which was sponsored by the Old Town School Of Music. It is not official in the Guinness Book yet, but we obliterated the current record of 539 Swiss harmonica players that night, and had a great time doing it. Take that Jimi Hendrix!

Things that make me go...huh?

So I went out to grab some smokes today, and at the store I noticed the front page headline of the Chicago Suntimes. The headline basically asked if Barack Obama's wife was "black enough." This same question was also put to Senator Obama during the CNN / Youtube debates. This got me thinking. Why is this an issue? Barack and his wife clearly are black. Yes, they are both obviously very well educated. Is that what makes them "not black enough"? I really am concerned for the people that find this to be an issue with Senator Obama. I am going to assume for the most part, that people who raise this concern are black themselves. If race is an issue for people regarding this election I can't imagine that it is a white person who is saying "You know, I really like that Obama, he's got good ideas, but he could use a few phat gold ropes." I guess my question would have to be, if Obama isn't "black enough" for you:
  • A) What would make him black enough? - Remember folks this guy is applying for the job of LEADER OF THE FREE WORLD! Are you expecting that if we have a black president that all state dinners be catered by KFC and serve water melon for desert?
  • B) If you are not going to vote for him because he's not "black enough" (and assuming that you are a Democrat) who would you vote for instead? - I hear that John Edwards has mad street cred.
Obviously I am exaggerating some points here to make one. I actually like Obama and do think that he would be a very effective leader. (I have issues with him because he reminds me very much of Bobby Kennedy but that is a topic for another article.) I would like to think that black people if they support his views would rally behind Mr. Obama. I think he would do a much better job then that other black president that we had. Oh...wait, we've never had a black president. I mean come on folks, this is a man who I think has a great chance to become our next president, and from what I have seen of him I think he will be an excellent one. I personally wouldn't ever let a factor such as race or gender (in the case of Hillary) determine who I would vote for. I think our country is in a bit of a dark spot right now. We need an effective leader more then anything else. I honestly don't care what that person is going to look like, just that they start taking our country back down a road towards respectability that I think we have seen gradually decline over the last 8 years. Wouldn't it be nice to say "I'm an American!" and not feel like America is a dirty word?

If anyone out there wants to take a stab at answering my questions and explaining this nonsense to me I am all ears.
