I went and saw this movie this weekend to see what all the hype was about and I absolutely loved it. I have not read any of the book, but I have heard they are twice as good as the movie. The tickets were sold out everywhere the opening night, so I had to see it on Saturday. This movie has made the most money ever on opening night. People waited in line for hours and hours to see this movie. This seems kind of insane to a point, but I think people like the movie so much because it deals with a fantasy world. People go to this to escape from the lives that they have and wish that this movie could be true. There are so many fan clubs and people who are willing to do anything to see the move and read the books. I think they all love to escape to a different world then their own.

As I was browsing through pictures looking for what image i could use for my essay, I came across quite a few pictures of 3D artwork that’s actually drawn with chalk on sidewalks. The person who took this picture is trying to show how imaginative some artists are. I think it’s very difficult to draw something like this and make it look so realistic. There are many 3D images that look a lot better, but i liked this one in particular because of the little girl standing on the edge of the building. I find it funny how she bends over as if she was trying to look down from the top of the building. It left me wondering how realistic these drawings may be.

When I look at this picture it reminds me of sociology. The little girl standing on the edge because to her it looks like if she walks any further she might fall in! The age that children learn depth perception is like toddler, and this girl is young, I’m not sure exact age. This chalk drawing is very elaborate. The artist did a spectacular job! I really had to look at this picture for a few seconds to figure out it was not real. I think this will make a great paper!

I think that this drawing had a lot of work put into it. At the top it shows certain clothing companies and many skyscrapers. The most funny thing I observed was the little girl standing on the drawing and looking down as if it was real. It shows how young and naive children are today. They will believe almost anything that anyone tells them and that is supported by her looking down upon the picture. Another thing I believe the artist was trying to convey is how people do not really notice things in life. People have to make bold statements if they want something to be noticed or to be taught.

I absolutely love victoria secret clothing and lingerie. Sometimes I even wish I could be a model for them. The funny thing about their modeling shows is that half the things that are showed or designed are things that no one would actually wear. Many of these designs are not even affordable to a lot of lower class people. I think they do this show to earn money and make profit by showing girls half-naked. Many people think that is absurd, but in many ways it is not. This is just what people design and if someone has the right body to model than that is great. Except many people are jealous, and they feel like they have to look like them to be beautiful. The people who design this and put on this show do not think about this very often because they keep doing it.

This weekend my friends Neely, Dillon, Rodge, and I went to Dallas and saw the premier of this movie at Dallas Movie Grill. It was really cool driving there and going to the actual grill. It was really nice and the best part is that the movie tickets were free because my dad won them for me. But anyways, enough about that and more about the movie. The movie was super funny. I think I laughed almost ninety nine percent of the time. It was just hilarious! It is about this group of guys that live on a boat in the ocean and b broadcast a rock radio channel that becomes illegal. Despite the show becoming illegal the team goes on with the show anyways and gets into trouble. I believe that the writer of this movie did a really good job in showing the decade of the time and how people really felt about this music. It is a great movie and everyone should go see it.

Wk 10
This movie was so good when I went to the premiere. The movie made me laugh so hard, because of all the funny jokes they had in it. I think they made this movie to show that people should have freedom. Even though many people do not agree with the words in the songs, does not mean they have to ban them from playing it or singing it. The movie was about the old days and how a lot of things were about sex, drugs, and rock and roll. Except to many people, rock and roll meant more than that. They showed this in the movie by showing how many people listened to their station and to rock and roll.

This video was so inspiring to me. It shows how many people get discouraged in life, but they never give up. It trying to convey a message about how in life people have to take risks. Even if they feel like they want to give up they need to keep striving towards there goals. It also shows that there is greatness in everyone, and people just need to dig deep inside to find it. When someone tries to bring you down you should not listen to them, because they do not know what your capable of, only you know that. This video showed me how much people can fail at time, but get right back up and try again. This is how everyone should view life.

We were warned, but we didn’t listen. Yes it is sad. The Redbox kiosk has virtually put BlockBuster out of business to where soon you will be renting thier movies out of a Bluebox. You can do all of your banking from a 24 hour ATM. Rent a car from the airport from the Alamo kiosk. Sign in to the minute clinic kiosk at walgreens when you arive for your appiontment. And now you can get 99 tacos for 2 cent (ha) from Jacks kiosk. But we cant say we weren’t warned in advanced several years ago. My main example will be Theodore Kaczynski (The Unabomber). Yes the unabomber from the 1980’s. Theodore was actually a VERY smart man that was a Harvard undergraduate, had a PhD in mathmatics from University of Michigan, and was a professor at University of California, Berkeley. But what drove the unabomber to the brink of insanity was the wilderness around his home being destroyed by development and technology. He said that technology was going to rot the minds of our children and take the jobs of our fathers. So he decided to send bombs to the CEO’s of high tech companys such as Boeing. As much as I hate to say it, it looks like Mr. Kaczynski was right.

I agree with you completely. This world relies to much on technology and it has become a major problem in the United States. There are so many electronics where people used to work and this has effected our employment growth rate. People are starting to depend to much on technology and not enough with their own skills. This picture shows how much our world has changed. First off by showing how we now have fast food restaurants wherever people go. Second off there are electronics machine that have taken the place of people’s job. This is so absurd, because society should be relying on themselves to survive not a machine.

I believe that Josephine Baker thought that love was the one thing that kept her going as a dancer. If you have so much passion for one thing I think that you will stick with it no matter what. I feel like she was trying to make a point on how much love can affect our life. If there is something you truly love it stays a part of you forever. There will never be a day that goes by, where you do not think of that one true passion. She wants people to know that if you put all your love into something it will pay off in the end, and you will never forget how much it meant to you. This is so meaningful to me, because I believe if you set your heart and mind to something you will achieve that one thing.

I still have yet to see this movie even though I really want to. It’s funny that you say they are idiots for not checking under the bed, almost all horror movies have people that make awful decisions throughout the movie.  Sometimes they will head toward the scary sounds or sometimes when they are in a group they decide to split up.  Also I can relate to thinking it’s funny when people freak out about anything in a horror movie. The best is when one of your friends sitting right next to you almost jumps out of their seat.

LOL.  I thought the people watching this movie were hilarious!  I went with a friend to see this and we laughed the entire time.  Everyone was so on-edge it was almost comical.  The movie was ridiculous too.  Everyone in the theater screams when… a door moves?  When they see a shadow?  Come on people.  The noises you are hearing are those damned Keebler Elves.  The acting was great, and it was entertaining, but also little over-hyped.  And… they never checked under the bed! Idiots!

Week 7

Last week I went and saw Paranormal Activity in theatres and I literally was gripping the seat I was so scared. It was really intense. The movie is about a girl who is haunted by something in her house and she cannot ever get away from it. Every night it shows up in their house and something creepy happens. The writer did a very good job at portraying the creativity and scariness of this movie. It differs from most other scary movies and it really freaked me out. I was even thinking about it almost the rest of the day. I suggest everyone go and see it!

W7 Reblog

I decided to re-blog kristas-09 post because I actually saw Paranormal Activity twice! And it was still scary both times. I loved the movie and I’m considering buying it when it comes out on DVD. This really was a different type of horror movie because when you think of scary movies, you think of slasher films or some serial killer breaking into your home and there is nowhere to escape or something really bloody and gory, but this movie was definitely different and actually believable and I suggest that those who have not seen it, should really see it because it’s not a waste of money!

week7 reblog I’ve actually seen Paranormal Activity and it was scary so seeing this reminds of that fear. By the end of that movie I was and tears, from fear and laughing at the fact that I was that scared. The previews for this movie were exactly like how the audience reacted. I think the reason so many people (including myself) reacted with this fear is due to the way it was filmed. Shot like a documentary it made the movie feel realistic like this could have been going on in one of our houses. It made you questioned weather it was based on “true” events or simply fiction written by some very crafty writers.

This movie was so intense, and it had me on the edge of my seat the whole time. The main thing that was scary about the movie was it seemed like it really happened. It is almost like it could happen to anyone and that is so scary. I believe they did this movie to scare people around halloween and freak them out. Supposedly it is based on real events, but that is kind of hard to believe. They seemed like they just wanted to show people what they believe is out there. They want people to believe in ghosts and other paranormal things.

This video shows all the adorable tigers and other animals that are rescued from homes that cannot take care of them. I love animals so much and I feel like they all need special care especially animals that are wild. This video shows that there are so many wild animals out there that are not taken care for in the right way. It tells us that they need to be in a place like this one where they can be properly taken care of and fed correctly. The author is showing that animals need to be heavily taken care of and cannot be in the hands of someone who does not know what they are doing.

Week 6 Reblog

I loved this video when I first saw it, and I agree that this is a wonderful way to celebrate the love between two people. What makes me sad about seeing this post is that after this video came out Fox 4 News went around and asked some of the local churches, all different religions, if they would allow this to happen in their church. Some priests would quickly answer yes that they too agreed a wedding was a celebration of love. But some priests quickly answered no. They said that a wedding was supposed to be a quiet moment between two people. That those people should reflect upon their love and should be thanking God for bringing them together. I personally believe that blaring Chris Brown and having your wedding party dance down the aisle is a pretty cool ( and loud and effective) way of thanking God for bringing two people together.

I agree with kristas-09 that this video is a lot of fun. I like how they managed to keep a certain feeling of spontaneity despite its obvious pre-plannededness. Anymore, people spend so much money on their weddings, it really should be a celebration that is special to the couple. Here, they’ve managed to take the old tradition of “walking down” the aisle and make it their own. Instead of going through the motions of a tradition they had no part in making, they found a way to be truly original. Also, I really like that the couple approaches the “altar” together. There’s a very nice sentiment to the idea of going into this whole married thing together (instead of one person being “given away” to another).

This video is so hilarious! It would be so much fun to get married like that. I bet they had a ton of fun and the families watching really looked like they enjoyed it. They were all clapping along and having a great time. I like that they decided to do that for their entrance. It is very unique and fun. It is not traditional and that makes it even more exciting. I think that this is what the couple wanted to do to stick out and really have a good time getting married. it was a very cute idea and I loved it. Maybe one day I will get married like that.

I saw this when it came on the news, and fell in love with it. Even though it was all planned out, you can tell the purpose of this was show the love the family and friends have just for this couple to get married.  This just shows the couple are obviously fun people and just wanted to celebrate, thats right CELEBRATE the best day of their lives. Most people forget thats what a wedding is for and get caught up in the drama like the show Bridezilla, or however you spell it.

Wk 7

The first thing I thought when I watched this video is how I want my wedding to be exactly like this. I believe they put this on you tube to show how everyone has their own opinion on how marriage should be. They seem like they are an upbeat and fun couple. People may think that this is wrong, but it is how they wanted to get married. People should be able to express themselves however they want. The person who posted this up wanted to make it known just because you have differences does not mean you are wrong. Everyone should be able to express their feelings how they want.
