Wanna get out, have to get out, got to

And we continue on...

June 29, 2012


Excitement, Adventure, a Jedi craves not these things

It has been rather gloomy this past week.
So, last night I tried to lighten things up a little bit.

The smoke lifted in our neighborhood.
I know that there are still some serious fire restrictions in place for the city, but the kids and I decided to risk it.
We busted out the lightsabers and headed outside.
An Epic Duel ensued but were very careful not to burn anything.
The kids and I are going to battle the fire the only way we know how...with The Force!

And the Fire rages on.

346 Homes have been lost to the Waldo Canyon Fire in Colorado Springs.
It is 15% Contained and it has burned 16,750-18,500 acres (estimated).

The Mountain Shadows neighborhood:

But here is something to remember:

June 27, 2012

----------------------------------------------------------

The City of Colorado Springs is burning

32,000 people have been evacuated and that number is still growing.
Structers and Homes have been lost.
No one knows how many homes yet because, as I type this, the fire is raging across the front range.

WALDO CANYON FIRE UPDATE:

THE FIRE HAS JUMPED AND COME DOWN THE MOUNTAINS INTO TOWN:


Let's take a break from the Fire Watch and share some stuff

Here is yet another example of Police getting away with racially motivated Police Brutality.
They even PLEADED GUILTY and all they got was a $5,000 dollar fine.
Props to Occupy All Streets for keeping up on this story:

This meme sums up my feeling about the news above:

The Occupy Movement has lost its focus.
The media has made it out to be a joke at this point.
And let's be honest, many of the Occupy groups have turned into "CauseHeads',
ready to protest what ever Adbusters.org tells them to that morning.
The Masses now understand the concept of the 99% now, but still don't seem to care.
This saddens me.
It's time for the Occupy Movement to refocus.
It's time to wake people up.
It's time we the people start holding the 1% accountable.
It's time to make it happen:


This Colorado Wildfire business is getting scary

"Colorado Springs’ Batwoman, with flaming bicycle helmet and rain poncho accessories
(not everyone can afford a Bat-Copter or full utility belt in this economy). But still pretty BAMF right here:

Quick thought…all those people’s comments thanking God for people like this woman...
How come they’re not calling out God for falling off the wagon yet again by going on one of his Old Testament Flood benders?
He gets a free pass? I call bullshit on that:

PROMETHEUS SPOILERS

I think after this, I'm done with Prometheus posts for a bit:




And here is some other spoilers for you:



I'm just bursting with excitement from seeing Prometheus

June 8, 2012


Prometheus

So, I saw it last night at a Midnight IMAX showing with The Roman.
It is a good movie.
I would give it 4 out of 5.
And it is NOT an Alien Prequel.
This movies focuses on the "Space Jockey" species and how they relate to humanity.

While it does give insight into the Aliens we all know and love,
it does not establish any clear cut origin or genesis.
It is rather open to interpretation.
Which will no doubt create tons of Nerd Debate online for years to come.

This movie focuses on posing questions such as 
“What do you expect of your creator?
What would you ask your creator?
What difference does it make?”
If and how the movie answers all of those is up to you to find out.
Noomi Rapace & Idris Elba were awesome as were Michael Fassbender & Charlize Theron.

I will not post any spoilers here...for now.
Let's just say that if you want to see some acid for blood, chest bursting badies...you will.
