Random Thoughts

Why do the French get their own vanilla? Where is the Spanish vanilla?

Who is running IMdb and how do they know so much about movies?

Why do we still have flat head screws? Phillips head screws are superior. And why didn't they name them cross head screws? Who is this Phillips guy?

How much gum would you have to eat in order to kill you?

Do you think people are good so they can get into heaven and then when they are there they are bad?

How is livery pronounced? I see it on taxicab license plates.

How come when people get shot in movies or on tv they just look at their gunshot wound in awe without screaming bloody murder? When I stub my toe in real life I want to throw a table across the room and punch the first person I see.

I think Tyler Perry just really likes to cross dress. There isn't a logical explanation for making so many Madea movies.

Can a tree die from old age?

I like lunchables but where are the breakfastables and dinnerables?

I just watched Rise of the Planet of the Apes and I thought it was fantastic. I have to admit that before viewing this flick I was a Planet of the Apes virgin. I know, I am as shocked as you are. Now I have to go back and watch the original and the sequels from the 70's. I heard the 2001 remake sucked so I won't get my hopes up when I eventually watch that one.

In my opinion you really can't go wrong with prequels. There is always a story to tell and Hollywood many routes to go. Unfortunately sequels are harder to live up to because it is tough to top the original. I'm excited about The Wizard of Oz prequel that comes out next year. It tell the story of The Great Oz.

I have a great idea that I have mentioned in the past that someone should come up with a series of at least a trilogy and start at the end and work back to the beginning. Star Wars kind of did that but not entirely. Each movie would leave you wanting to know how you got to that point. They would be prequels to prequels. Someone will eventually have to run with this idea, Hollywood is running out of ideas. Remakes, prequels and sequels seem to be mainstream nowadays.

What do you think Hollywood should do? Do you have any film ideas?

Eloquent rambling

Dammit, time just slips by without me noticing. I haven't posted anything in over a month. First I was sick and couldn't write. Then I had my wisdom teeth taken out and wasn't up to doing anything. And the last two weeks just went by and I totally forgot about blogging. What is wrong with me? Am I losing the urge to write? Do I not find blogging as awesome as when I first started? Have I lost my edge? So many questions to ask and be answered.

I need to stop making excuses and whining like a baby and shit or get off the pot. Either blog like I mean it or don't do it at all because this half ass crap isn't working. It is not like I don't have the time, I have plenty of time but I choose to do other things for some reason. It's not like I don't like writing, because I do. It's the reading of other blogs and keeping up on comment replying that gets time consuming and over whelming. I need to hire an assistant for very little money to read blogs all day and comment as Powdered Toast Man. That would make things so much easier. I feel like I should have some ultimate goal with blogging but I don't. It is really just to get comments. Isn't that all we really care about? What people have to say about what we write?

I get overwhelmed thinking about what I need to write sometimes like it's school or a job or something. It is just for shits and giggles and I need to just loosen up and go with the flow. I need to slowly make a comeback. I was at the top of my game once. I just need to figure out a way to do it again.

Or just say fuck it and be done. Any thoughts?
