And, of course, the lease isn't in yet. I curse you, US Postal Service! Blast you!

But at least Final Fantasy Seven is still awesome.

About bloody time. I finally got my computer back online. Now, all I need is a fan so that I don't keep catching on fire, but we've all got priorities. Get some.

I like movies. I like Postal 2. Therefore, I should make Postal 2 into a movie. I would make it the greatest movie ever. Clearly, I would have to cast Matto as the Postal Dude, and Woody as one of the RWS guys. I don't think they'd have any problem with it.

I'm slowly coming to terms with the fact that no one ever takes me seriously, or ever believes that I know what I'm talking about.

One of these days. . .one of these days.

Do all girls think Angelina Jolie is superhot?

Well, believe it or not, I'm glad it's raining. It's been so bloody blazing hot in this apartment, that even just a little cooling off is like nirvana. Ahhh.

Anyway, I started working at Blockbuster again. It's not a bad job, in fact, I really kind of like it. I'm surround by movies all the time, and that's no problem to me. But I've been finding out that, on top of no one ever taking me bloody seriously, is that no one, not one person(save Cheese, and even we differ on many things) likes the movies that I like. It's kind of like Nikki and I, but on a larger scale. The thing that trips my landmine, is(I'm surely guilty of this as well) how much they all think that I have no clue on how movies are made or how they succeed or fail in their various endevours. Let me tell you this, just because you are a fan of Wes Anderson or the Coen Brothers, does not make you bloody smarter than me.

Loving the Royal Tenenbaums and The Big Lebowski does not make you sophisticated, funny, or intelligent. Being a fan of Hong Kong cinema does not make me Chinese, ya dig? And I'm getting a bit tired of being told that, because I liked Blade and hated Interview with the Vampire, because I love Star Wars and didn't like Kill Bill, that I'm just wowed by special effects. No, I just like what I like, good story, good action, visually stunning, whatever it is that I like I'm getting tired of being told that I'm simple minded. Let me tell you, everyone in Pittsburgh loves the Coen Brothers. And those bastards are some tenacious and ultradefensive fans. Jerks.

Yes, I know that QT took elements from all kinds of movies and put them together, yes I know that it's supposed to be overthetop, yes I know that it's an homage, but that doesn't make it good. He still sucks as a director. He's a great writer, yes, but can't use a camera. And come on, I've seen way better action that uglyass Uma Thurman's. Yes, I get Kill Bill. No, I don't like it.

Quit telling me that I don't get your comedy, that it's too sophisticated, that I'm not smart enough. I understand it. I just do not find it that bloody funny. *sigh*

Just respond to my criticisms and quit telling me that I just don't get it. One of these days, I'm gonna tear some legs off. Hey, I like more movies than I dislike, too. So give me a break. I realize that no one in the entire history of the universe likes the movies that I like. Just let me enjoy it.

p.s. I'm working on this myself. I really need to just calm down and let people like what they like. In fact, I'd say that's one of my greatest failings. I hate fallibility.
