Ghostbusters 2

Remember Ghostbusters 2?  It may have been a disappointing sequel, but I think it was predicting the future.  We had an ooze or plasma that caused people to hate.  If you think about it, that ooze is social media.  I used to do Twitter.  I stopped after offending someone with sarcasm.  I was wrong.  I decided I needed a break.  Guess what?  I feel better.  I still use Facebook and Instagram.  I am trying to stick to certain things.  No more offensive comments.  Generally, I try to stick to family and movies.  I wish I have a bigger platform to write from.  My 6 or so people might share this.  I'd even go into the President's racism, but why bother?  I care, but I can not make a difference.  Just remember, the people he is trying to keep out are either running from danger or hunger or they just want a better life in a country that touts itself as the richest nation in the world.

Busch Gardens Tampa

I brought my daughters to a coaster theme park.  Tampa during the summer is like being on the surface of the sun.  It's hot.  It was not bad in the park.  We had a breeze and there were some shady spots.  Unlike Disney, we did not have to wait over an hour for each ride.  One thing I don't like are fast passes.  When they started they were free.  Now, every park charges for them.  Disney even gives it's rich customers the option of buying extreme passes.  I found that to be sad.  At one time, Disney allowed handicapped patrons and families to go straight to the top of the line.  They rich screwed the handicapped.  How?  They would hire a handicapped person to be a part of their family.  It got out because the rich have to gloat about how they get away with everything.  So, who did Disney punish?  The handicapped.  I guess they hated the idea of a handicapped person making money from their disability.  They sure made it up to the rich.  They just need to spend more money to get perks they think they deserve.  People like my daughters suffer.  They were limited to one fast pass every hour or two.  They have fast passes at Busch Gardens, but it was not an overwhelming amount of people.  I'm not wasting money on them.  To me, fast passes are like baggage fees airlines charge you.  The park was fun.  I did not ride as many as I would have when I was younger.  Motion sickness comes on quickly depending on the ride.

Movie Weekend

I got to catch up on some movies and streaming this weekend.  Finally saw The Quiet Place.  Great movie.  I really loved what the director came up with.  Can't wait to see what he does next.  I saw Bohemian Rhapsody.  Another well acted film, with great music.  Unlike Rocketman, the actor lip synced.  Next was Hotel Artemis.  Great cast and a fun film.  Finally, I saw Cold Pursuit.  If you think it is like Neesom's other movies, they add some twists to the formula. I also watched Black Mirror Season 5 and started Good Omens.  Both were great. 

Bear of a Day

Friday I had a new experience.  I was driving to work.  I was near a state park.  They have deer crossing signs, but no bear.  I wonder why.  Yogi got out and was trying to make his way back to the park before the ranger noticed him missing.  He would have made it if my car did not try to put a stop to that.  Luckily, he did not die, as far as I know.  I was driving and out of the corner of my right I, I see something moving really fast.  I slammed on the breaks.  Next thing I know, the bear is flying into the air and lands on his side.  He flips up and runs off.  No blood, only a dent in my bumper and whatever other issues the mechanics find.  I call it a him because only a male would be dumb enough to try and beat a car.  My girls thought that was funny.  I also said that it did not have an Iphone in its paw, so it could not be a girl.  I lost any points with them after that comment.

Banned From Movies

My daughter has banned me from seeing any movies this summer.  I can only go if she gets to go.  I don't know if I could make it through the summer without seeing any movies.  My stress time is coming up and they relieve some of that stress.  I might have to compromise with her.  Plus if I went and she does not find out. . .😀

Cultural Revolution

I'm reading a book called My Name is Number 4 by Ting-Xing Ye.  It's very interesting.  It's a part of history that my public schools did not delve into.  You do see some parallels to what our current situation in America.  Only our government is made up of the rich.  They are using the poor to take down any and all critics of themselves.  He did state he loved the uneducated.  It's a scary thought.  They also mix in Religion and white supremacy.

X-Men: Dark Pheonix

Is it really as bad as they say?  No.  I watched it yesterday.  I found it to be very entertaining.  Sure there is some repetition, but what do you expect.  I don't really know the comics, so I can not comment on storylines.  You can only do so much.  This was a vast improvement over X-Men: The Last Stand.  Most movies would be a better than that entry.  Give it a chance.  Maybe keep your expectations low.

International Adoptions

Well it seems our racist president is trying hard to keep out all people.  Evidently they are trying to curb adoptions from other countries.  They are taking away tools that we used to find our daughter's.  If it had not been for these tools, we would not have adopted them.  It sickens me to think what would have happened if that had not happened.  Our country has opportunities that others may not offer.  Somehow I think we were guided to do this.  I love my daughters.  I feel sorry for those that might miss out on a forever family because of what?   Are people scared my blind daughter is going to take away their jobs?  Their "benefits"?  Or maybe we have a group of rich elites that run this country that want to keep every dollar they get.  I don't mean earn.  Some don't even have to work for it.  It is just given to them.  A lot of them make their money of the backs of hard working people.  Those same rich elites want the working class and poor to pay for services that serve all.

Diehard Fans?

I really get tired of supposed Die hard fans of a series.  With social media, it makes things worse. The Terminator trailer came out yesterday.  People are already complaining about it.  We won't see the movie until November.  You'd think people would be happy that Cameron is involved.  That is what has been missing over the last 3 sequels.  Cameron had no involvement.  I don't even think the directors/writers even tried to consult him.  I'm looking forward to it.  I will reserve judgment.  Maybe this is one reason I quit Twitter.  It fuels negativity.

Terminator is Back!

They released the trailer for Terminator Dark Fate.  It is the direct sequel to Judgment Day, #2.  It looks really good.  Cameron is involved with this.  Hamilton and Arnold are back.  The direction of the story has changed.  It's going to be interesting to see how they pull this off.  I hope it is successful.  The end of the year is going to be good for Film buffs/geeks.  November is Terminator and December is Star Wars.

Avengers: Endgame!

It's out!  By the looks of it, you will not have a hard time finding tickets.  That is if you have a little flexibility.  It sounds like they saved the best for last.  Last, for some actors/actresses.  My kids have already been bothering me about it.

Instant Family

If you ever wanted to know what Fostering is like in a sanitized way, check out Instant Family.  It comes close to what it can be like.  They do not go into heavy detail on the abuses kids can suffer from their original parents.  Also, I don't know how other states do it, but in Florida, we did not have an event to go pick out children.  You get a phone call when the child is taken into state custody.  They also keep information to a limited basis.  If you don't ask, they won't tell.  Their goal is to place the child(ren).  Parents can play games when it comes to reunification.  Some could care less about how that affects their child.  I did think it does shine a more realistic view of the system.

Shazam!

I hear Shazam is really good.  To me, it looks like Big meets Superman.  I hear it does not take itself too serious.  It even pokes fun at DC.  Hopefully, one day, I will see it. 

Twitter Feed

Today, I went through my Twitter Feed and deleted all my posts.  I don't see the point in keeping them there.  Look what has happened to past people that have.  All it takes is one post to offend someone.  I can get really sarcastic.  I'm better off not having a history.  There are apps that will delete your history.  TweetDelete.net is the app I am using.  Seems to have worked.

Alita Battle Angel

It looks like there may be a sequel.  I hope so.  It made enough money to qualify.  It will all be up to Disney and Cameron.  Hopefully, they will do it.  I liked the movie. 

Sarcasm Not Accepted

I ran into trouble on Twitter.  I used sarcasm to someone I did not really know.  It failed miserably.  If you are ever in that situation, don't do it.  Most of the time, my sarcasm is for politicians and there stupidity.  This person let me know real quick that it is not acceptable to do.  Before I even made a friend, I lost them as someone I will follow.  In the future, I will get to know someone before I try to kid around. 

Captain Marvel

Took the girls to see this movie.  It was great.  Some have complained about its feminist nature.  That's ridiculous.  It was a fun movie.  Yes, it is inspiring to girls.  What is wrong with that?  It's not like they have a lot of super heroes to look up to.  Now they just need to work on POC super heroes.

I Heard you Painted Houses

I started reading this book.  It will be a motion picture in the fall brought to us by Netflix.  It is about the man who says he knew what happened to Jimmy Hoffa.  So far, it has been a very interesting book.  I think the movie will be amazing.  They are calling it The Irishman.  It has some major star power. 

Crazy Week!

It's been one crazy week.  Did you watch the Cohen hearing?  Now all they have to do is verify his information.  Get ready for more hearings.  Sounds like the Trump spawn may be making an appearance.  Now we have the security clearance being given to a person who should not have one because daddy says he should.  When will this nightmare end?  Republicans keep doing the See no evil, Hear no evil, Speak no evil!  I hope they go down with this ship.

Bone Spurs Makes it to Vietnam!

Cadet Bonespurs could not go during his younger years, but Trump has finally made it to Vietnam.  Probably there to secure buildings in his name and patents for his daughter.  Oh yeah, and give away the farm to North Korea and claim it a great deal!

Doth Protest Too Much?

Trump attacked Spike Lee saying he made a racist comment.  Spike never mentioned Trump or his followers.  He just said that 2020 is coming and to pick love over hate and Do the Right Thing!  Doesn't sound anywhere near the true racism of Donald J Trump!  If you have not seen BlackkKlannsman, you really need to!
