    "I just gotta say.." thread.

    So this is basically where you can get anything off your chest. Good or Bad.

    Or if you need to scream or go on a rant, please feel free.
    (But pay attention to any rules that apply to journals. 'Cause I don't want mods to close this for anything).

    Here are some simple ideas: You absolutely love something, something pisses you off, something you can't stand, something you have to talk about, anything like that, hence the title.

    mine:

    So I just gotta say I hate Wakes before the funeral. It's creepy, it's unnatural and I don't see the purpose. I also don't like the pre-funeral thingy inside the funeral home. It kind of freaks me out, and even if I try to listen to it, I'm more consumed with the thoughts of my loved one. I just wish they would play the music, lets us say goodbye and close the coffin. I hate seeing the body because I feel like it's an empty shell.

    And I also gotta say I hate judgemental people. I felt people staring at me, my mom, and my sister. Like, the entire time. Maybe because I wore all white, and everyone else was in the black. But you know what? I think my grandad would've liked white better, and I hate wearing black to funerals. Because the fact that I solely believe he went to heaven. The black and the wake and all that feels like it isn't for him. It's people holding on to things and not letting go. I wore white because I believe his soul is free now.

    Strange because while I sat there a verse came in my head,
    "Black sheep, Black sheep, Have you any wool?
    Yes sir, Yes sir, Three bags full."

    Its from a British poem, but I don't know why it just came in my head. It's funny because I'm always the black sheep in my family, and yesterday it was kind of ironic. The black sheep dressed in white, while everyone else normal dressed in black.

    Whatever, I was just there for my grandad and no one else, so I tried to ignore the hateful glares.

    But besides that the funeral itself was really nice. He was a military man all his life and he achieved the highest rank for an enlisted man. So they had the gun salute, and flag and stuff.

    So I'm proud of him, and I feel better about the entire situation now.

    I just gotta' say I'm friggin' tired of gamer-debates...

    It's all pointless in the end to complain about quality and price when all that really matters in the end is the amount of fun you get from playing the game. It doesn't matter how far technology has come and it doesn't matter how far technology goes. It doesn't matter how lazy or how money-hungry developers are. The true value of a game is how much you gain from it in the end, how much time you spend with it, and how much you can look back and say you don't regret the purchase.

    Most gamers are just nit-picky, getting technical and obnoxious about every single thing - claiming they'll never purchase that game or that it wasn't worth getting it - but I think they're too busy looking at the expiration date of milk to not realize the thing still tastes good.

    And stop bashing on Wii Music, people! It's a good game. It just looks retarded and makes you look retarded, but so does WarioWare and no one's complained about that.

    Re: "I just gotta say.." thread.

    Right now I just gotta say:

    Stop b***hing about Watchmen!
    As most of you know I loved Watchmen. (for those of you know me you don't even have to read this).
    But I hear everywhere, "Oh I hope that doesn't suck like Watchmen did",
    "You know that was a flop",
    "OMG I can't believe they showed a penis",
    "Violence is too relevant in culture now. Watchmen destroys children."
    "It's a comic book movie! how come it had boobs and penises and violence?"
    "Sin City and 300 were better."
    " That movie was retarded".
    Anyway you guys get the point.

    So WTF guys? On one corner you get the screaming comic book fanboys who were so stupid about it Ozy had to go tell them off,
    the next you get the people who saw it and didn't get it. So they bring up the blue D!ck.
    Then you get the People who didn't read the comic and expected it to just be non stop action and were disapointed.
    And in the fourth you get the people who only complain about the fact about how much sex and violence was in it.

    Then you in the middle you get the class that saw it, liked (or loved) it, and didn't try to expect anything from it, good or bad, and understood it. Regardless if they read the comic or not.

    So all I have to say is What the F**k?

    Most people who I saw it with were disapointed because they thought it would be like The Dark Knight or 300. Then when they get that its a very very complex plot not revolved around action they whine about it.
    "The trailer was better than the movie."

    Then you get with the fanboys they complain there wasn't enough story. They are b***hing about minor details, and not appreciating all the work and consideration the filmakers did for them.
    "OMFG< they left out the squid. And Rorshach is supposed meet with Veidt and call him gay. Ozymandias doesn't look like he did in the comic. Where's Rorschach's orgin?"

    And blatantly there's the people who didn't even try to get the plot. They're too preocupied with the blue penis and the amount of sex and violence.
    Get over it! So what? they showed nudity!
    In Japan they're open with nudity because they don't find it harmful unless it's in the pornographic sense. You're not really supposed to see Dr. Manhattan sexually. He's supposed to be godlike. That's partially why its hard for him to have any sort of relation to people.

    Am I the only one who loved this movie? I read the comic previously. I saw a trailer and was stoked. I saw it, and was satisfied. I understood changes, because everything can't be the same. I actually liked some of the changes. So I thought it was kickass and enjoyed it a lot.
    But I also can get into depth on the plot.
    So I loved the damn movie.

    But you know what? You can't make everyone happy. So, screw it.

    I guess all my freaking favorite plots are like this. BladeRunner, The ClockWork Orange, Shojo Kakumei Utena, Across the Universe. WTF moments, but its backed with overwhelming symbolism and rich psychological running underneath.

    That was todays rant.

    "I just gotta say..."

    ^_^ well, i didn't read the comic, but Watchmen was a friggin good movie. yeah it had too much sex, and violence, and "oh mah gosh that suxx", but isn't that what the God-damn movie was trying to say?? wasn't it supposed to be a commentary on the world and people and relationships and all the sh!t that we are as human beings?

    goodness gracious great balls of fire, just say you didn't like the movie and friggin get over it. it's a movie. IT'S NOT REAL.
