After reading the headlines from CNN.com, the only thing of interest (to me) is that little tab on the left hand side of the page that reads "college football". What story is bigger than AL QUEIDA forcing residents of Iraq to "leave or die" or the growing mold in the homes of Katrina victims? The answer is that small, sparsely populated university known as South Florida and thier monumental upset of the flamboyent, axis of evil: The Miami Hurricanes this weekend. Yes sports fans, the game is on at 8:00 pm on Saturday but you must act now in order to get ESPN-U. Don't be discouraged that you have to pay 12 dollars for this bit of entertainment but I assure you it will be well worth your money. As any decent, self respecting resident of Florida would do, I implore you to circle this date and savor it as the "greatest upset of modern day college football". We can only hope to live for such an event once in our lifetimes.

I am a bit cynical about Bush's speech. I have no faith in the man, mostly due to what he's done in his time in office, and I almost wonder what he's really doing.

Admittedly, I have no real experience in presidency and I don't entirely want to have one. What are other's thoughts on this speech?

Ben Affleck mighth be running for senitor in Virginia. He will be moving there shortly with his wife Jennifer Garner and there soon to be baby. He supported the democratic party heavily during the 2004 election. I don't know if he would be good as a senator. He doesn't seemtobe in doing well in the film industry so I guess he could try something else. I dont have anything else to say about that.

10:30 AM  
Blogger Mike Worthington said...

I posted a blog on my blog page about the news program we were apparently supposed to watch, so most of my comments are found there. Here are a few of my feelings on current events:

On CNN on Monday night, Larry King spoke with members of Habitat for Humanity and the National Humane Society. They discussed the situation after Hurricane Rita ripped through New Orleans a week ago.

The estimated number of dogs left behind was around 4,000 as people fled Rita's wrath. Hearing that made me very sad.

I hope we're out of hurricane season here in Central FL. They are predicting as many as 22 storms this year, and there have been 17 with 5 of those being major hurricanes.

Adios All- Mike.

I've noticed lately from watching Mr. Bush speak on television that he is very specific and conniving with his language. If you notice when he speaks to the press he always has a way to retreat easily from the room, regardless of where it is located, that the press conference is being held in. The language he uses allows him to do the same thing. He talks in circles around the subject he is speaking on. By using phrases such as, "I will be observing the communication between state and local officials and the military." This allows him to dodge responsibility for anything that could possibly go wrong. It gives him a constant scape goat, but quite frankly I would rather have Nixon back.

Alright, i dont really have TV. I did check out the daily shows website though. There was a few things from this weeks show about Hurricane rita and Bush. I personally hadn't given Rita much attention but apparently according to Jon stewert "Rita was the Hollywood sequel of hurricanes". I figured it wasn't gonna be much. I personally was hopeing that it would hit texas at a CAT5 and totally mess with texas. Then see how long it takes Bush to react. Then Bush goes to say how he's putting together like somewhere in the ballpark of 200Bill $ to support the major impact zones from the hurricanes. Ofcourse then hes like "But we wont raise taxes". I really hate that man.

So I watched The Daily Show, with John Stewart. The two episodes that I watch were kind of boring. The only thing that even slightly interested me was in the first episode they talked about God forsaking New Orleans. They were talking about the different reason why god would allow such a terrible thing to happen. Some of the things they brought up were. God was angry and the gay and lesbian population of New Orleans. They said God was angry because New Orleans was very supportive of abortions. Then they had a clip of the Dali Lama talking about it was a sad thing that this happened.
On another side note they talked about making it illegal for truckers to Pee into bottles and to toss them out the window. Yea so that’s about it.

I heard that a man named Abubu was killed today for being a terrorist. That makes me sad. His name was abubu...he could have been a nice guy, who loved cats and playing with the neighbor hood children..non-sexualy. But no, he chose terrorism, and then got killed...man I'm glad I ouit terrorism. Abubu...so sad.

The importance of Michael Brown's testimony demonstrates the right wing's willingness to set things straight. While most believe it would be very one sided, the Republicans grilled Brown on his lack of preparation during Hurricane Katrina. Blame can go all the way to the top however it's more important now to move on and see that this lack of security and readiness doesn't happen again.

That whole thing about God wiping out New Orleans due to the gay population and support of abortions - I'm going to have to disagree. There are none of us without fault. Sin runs rampant in all of our hearts, so if God was out to wipe out sinners, we'd all be gone.

Michael Brown should not have lost his job as FEMA director for several reasons. You cant blame one man for everything that happened, its a natural disaster the fit will hit the shan. The Bush adinistration just wants a face for the American people to point their fingers at.

Wow! After watching our current president Bush acting on Iraq, and seeing his party making so many billions of dollars out of it, I wonder where the hell have all our great leaders gone?

In the asnwer to that question I started to study American History, and payed particular attention to former president James Madison. The man led America during the great war of 1812, when the British decided to retake America and burn Washinton to the ground.

Madison had to actuallly set up a provisional headquater "Hut" outside of Washinton, and lead us to victory.

That is right, that's what a hero does, sacrifice for his country, but what have president Bush sacrificed?

He introduce a whole new concept of patriotism; "Make money out the crisis"

Maybe one day we will be well led again, and America will recover from this mess. All it will take is a new leader to come. Hillary... you head?

I enjoyed reading your blogs; you are a literate bunch. I forwarded the link to Franko.

Would anyone care to comment on the Jan Hall flap? She is the Orange County school teacher who Ron Blocker suspended because of a racist letter she wrote her congress person, which ended up on the front page of a local Hispanic newspaper. Now she's suing the Orange County school board. My question is this: Did Ron Blocker violate Hall's first amendment rights by suspending her? Or did he do the right thing?

Have a great weekend. See you Oct. 7th at the Marionette Theater.

12:45 PM  
Blogger Kaci said...

There are two sides and many angles to every story, including the Jan Hall controversy. However, no matter what was said, Ron Blocker (who I have my own opinions about, being a student here for 12 years) has no right to use a personal letter against her or as means to suspend her. Hall's first amendment rights were violated in this action, as she did nothing to her students or out of conduct in school that warrant her suspension. Blocker is, as usual, just trying to avoid controvery and uproar by taking the easy way out. Obviously that strategy didn't work in his favor this time.

I don't know if you check this on the weekends, but if you wouldn't mind checking out this site, it's an online thesaurus called Visual Thesaurus or maybe you already know about it. The thing is I feel that something like this would be of a huge benefit to people like me. It might help out in a big way for a lot of students. Plus I hate paying for things when maybe seeing as this is a Creative Writing course, Full Sail might want to foot the bill for betterment of it's students.

If anyone is a fan of the late great show called Firefly, I highly recommend checking out the movie Serenity. I was first introduced to the Firefly show by word of mouth. A couple of months ago I bought the Firefly series on dvd. Being a fan of BTVS I had to see what the ole Whedon was up to. The man knows how to create characters and situations that his fans can relate to. So many movies and shows lack that humanistic quality, that essential pathos. Firefly is the exception. It has the great stories, and the great characters.

Thanks, Mike and Kaci.

The Visual Thesarus is great, and as Mike points out, free, as most language tools are on the internet.

I agree with Kaci about the Yankees, and I'm still pondering the Jan Hall controversy. It may be that racism and political correctness are more closely intertwined than we care to believe.

For example, perhaps unintentionally and certainly not publically (it was a private letter to her conngressman), Jan Hall established herself as a bigot. Just as she believes that immigration policies should exclude certain people, Blocker believes that public schools should exclude bigots. He doesn't want children taught by them or exposed to them, and he certainly regrets employing one. Is prejudice against bigots justified or is it different from bias of any kind including bias against race, gender or creed?

The bird flu is big news- lots of different opinions. Apparently, several chicken handlers in Aisa are claiming to have the flu, but scientists are saying that this particular strand of flu takes six years to mature in humans. While the public is scared of getting this flu, they don't have a reason to be as cases have been limited to Aisa.

In other news, there is now a new apple iPod capable of video playback. I think apple has a wonderful market for this product, and while Creative's products have higher capacity at lower prices, apple has the market cornered because of their sleek designs.

Eh, like I said before, the video iPod may be going too far. What are they gonna sell next, portable goggles to make it easier to watch it without looking at the screen?

As for the bird flu, American's get really scared if anything goes on. If any little minor thing happens, like Bush sneezes because he has a cold, there's a chance of an epidemic. I may be a bit jaded, but things have been exaggerated recently

I hadn't heard they released a new version of iTunes- thats cool. It seems like 5 just came out a little while ago. I don't like the way apple has gone to making people pay for updates to their OS, its too similar to Windows, and it means a less reliable system will be developed.

Enough computer talk. I don't like computers because they rarely work. And, I agree- death to reality television!

Locally, did anyone hear that Universal has been buying up land between them and Disney? Very interesting, seeing as they already have a bunch of land right across the road from IOA.

Reality TV is a very strong industry that isn't going anywhere. As much as people claim to hate it, everyone loves watching total strangers make complete idiots out of themselves. Because of this, the industry will remain strong and people will continue to watch it.

Cameron Crowe's new film "Elizabethtown" apparently does not live up to his previous work "Jerry Maguire,"

They were bad calls, period. I've been watching baseball my entire life, my grandpa played in the Major Leagues, and I have never seen a call like that. Too inside?? He could be a tightrope walker for how on the line he was running to first. *shakes head* Whatever, it's impossible to try and argue with non-Yankee fans.

And I vote no on Daniel Craig. Good looking guy and all, decent actor, but following Pierce Brosnan he looks like a little kid carrying around a toy gun. Bond needs to be manly, suave, debonair. Maybe he'll prove himself, but I still say bring back Brosnan!!

Jen-qui. This morning, a man with a chocolate face was arrested in Georgia. He was arrested because the police think he shot another police person. In Kazakhstan, we shoot police all the time because the bother us. I think the man with a chocolate face should run away again. Only this time, he should make sure he leaves no witneses if he plans to shoot more orange county piglets. Jen-qui.

The local news is filled with horrible events this week, I watched last night and I can't remember seeing one single story with a good ending. There was a deputy who shot his family and then himself and no one knows why. A man who went to a local Wal-Mart and sprayed up his wifes car with a machine-gun and then went inside to kill his wife, remarkably the gun jammed as he had the barrel to her face. Police officers then shot and killed the man as he desperatly tried to pull the trigger on his wife. It seems to be one depressing story after another, it's not safe anywhere nowadays, I'm almost scared to have a wife and kids in fear of losing them...

"A successful man is such who makes more money than what his wife can espend, and a successful woman is one who finds such man"

When I heard this the first time, I argued that negative perspectives about women are a clear display of a patriarch society strugling to stay in power. It seems that women today are getting more educated than men, so it might ended up been the complete oposite to that statement above.

So what do you think? Who will rule in the future? Who will parasite on who? Let's see if you can answer these questions without letting you ego take over. I perhaps will make a documentary about it one day.

President Bush has been denied the opportunity to pursue a massive suit against the tobacco companies of america by the supreme court. He says they misled the smoking public about the health threats involved in consuming tobacco. This is being viewed as a major strike for Bush and a major win for the Tobacco companies. With Bush already losing considerable steam due to his numerous downfalls (and I do not mean to get into a political debate here, this is only what I hear on the news)--

That way we can build a satelite that projects a holographic image of florida where it once was, and then when all the senior citizens drive to ft. lauderdale the drive off a cliff into the ocean.

"VOODOO TO DO" Halloween Party on Monday, October 17th!
The Orlando chapter of the Florida Motion Picture & Television Association (FMPTA) has joined forces with the Orlando chapter of the United Film & Television Artists (UFTA) and the local FAB ACTion group to host an
Exciting "VOODOO TO DO" Halloween Party! The VOODOO TO DO party will take place on Monday, October 17th from 7pm - 11pm at the Orlando Improv Comedy Club & Restaurant in downtown Orlando. This major event and collaboration of several entertainment organizations will be sponsored in part by Power 95.3 FM. The radio station Power 95.3 will have a vehicle on site at the Improv with personnel giving away prizes, and will broadcasting live during the event.

All three of these organizations (which promote the local motion picture, television, audio recording, and electronic media industries) are banding together to celebrate Halloween, but also to raise money for the hurricane victims of Katrina and Rita. 100% of the profits will go to the American Red Cross to help the victims of these two devastating storms. There will be a large number of people in the entertainment industry attending, but this festive event will also be open to the public (anyone 21 and up). There will be multiple costume contests with prizes, Voodoo dolls and games, and screenings of locally produced horror film trailers including Stephen Shea’s "Hoodoo for Voodoo"! Throughout the evening, there will be ghost stories from the Orlando Haunting Ghost Tour and the Orlando County Library and displays from Universal Studios. On hand that evening will also be professional film & tv make up artists who will be able to give guests a new face or just add some scary accents. Returning from last year’s event and back by popular demand, will be the "Wolfman" DJ spinning records. A cash bar and great food specials will be available.

The Improv Comedy Club & Restaurant is located at 129 West Church Street (on the corner of Church and Garland Avenue) in downtown Orlando. For more info visit www.orlandoimprov.com . There is garage parking available nearby and metered parking underneath I - 4. The door charge for this entire event is just $5! If you can not make the function, but would like to make a $5 donation to help The American Red Cross , please call Nia North at (407) 361 - 0662. More info will also be posted at www.fmpta-orlando.org

Has anyone ever noticed the way the news is almost like marketing in terms of selling a product? Could this be ruining the point of news? Now, I know this seems redundant, but hear (read) me out.

The news exists to get, well, information out to the public. In doing so, they gain ratings which allow them to gain more/richer advertising, which then allows them to make more money. These news companies are a profit organization, so making money is fairly important. My question is: Why?

Why can't news be news? If it exists to simply spread information, then this information needs to be accurate, unbiased, and unexaggerated. As much as journalists claim to be unbiased and such, it's simply not true. Any professional journalist will admit that in order to make get paid, people need to watch them/read their articles. They will then go on to say that people will only read things that are interesting. Finally, to make things interesting, they must 'emphasize' (read: exaggerate) some parts to peak the interest. They must do this and be as honest as possible.

So is this exaggeration bringing about the destruction of what news should be? When I look for news, which is very rarely, I want things to be as honest and straightforward as possible. I don't want to read "Oh my god, we're all going to die because a massively huge hurricane is going to come out of a random ocean and smite us all(out of the article: Except hurricanes get smaller when they hit land)," or "A new sickness has been found, the odds of this becoming a plague are good (out of the article: against it becoming a plague), which means we're all going to die!" Is it asking too much to just be given all the details and make our own conclusion?

I mean, I understand people are stupid, but isn't exaggerating taking a bit too far? I don't want to read all the fine print when I read news, I want to get told the truth. Is this asking too much?

For those that didn't know, Jack Thompson got owned in a rather funny way.

Let me give you the backstory first. Some time ago, Jack Thompson put out an offer to video game makers to create a video game where a father, who's son had been killed by a gamer gone mad, would go on a postal killing spree that targetted game designers. His offer was simply that whoever made the game would have ten thousand dollars donated to a charity.

Well, in a twist of events, someone went and made the game. When confronting Jack Thompson, he refused to pony up on the offer, claiming it was "just a joke." Right.

What really got him was when two guys, the makes of Penny Arcade (www.penny-arcade.com) put up ten thousand dollars of their own money and donated it to a charity in Thompson's name. Needless to say, he's a bit pissed off because of this.

At last update, Thompson had asked the Seattle police to detain and arrest Gabe and Tycho (of Penny Arcade). Real mature there Jack.

Ah-Nold has said he is “too busy” to meet with Bush. I hope our President realizes he is lying. I hope he understands that 61% of America has now turned their backs on him because everyone is tired of all the nonsense.

Actually, I just loved Arnold’s excuse of being “too busy”. It’s nice and vague, and there is no actual reason other than that Arnold doesn’t want to meet with him, and I don’t blame him.

In other news, Cancun is gone. Florida will soon drop off the face of the Earth (just kidding).

Cameron Crowe, yes, continually puts his mother in his films. I don’t think it’s a “weak spot”, I think it’s another trademark of Crowe’s work.

I’m not sure I like the whole idea of the “1st person” POV shots in Doom, I think they should have left the game as the game. I’m not that excited about seeing the film, but I am very excited about seeing Capote, which looks really awesome. Good ol’ Philip Seymour Hoffman, one of the greatest actors in the world.

I have no clue how low film makers are going to go to appease the mass audience of gamers. I am all for making games into film, but the worst thing is making a game into a rip off of the game where we don't play.

I am a fan of game movies. I liked the majority of them and would be more then willing to watch most of them again, simply because it's amusing. What I don't want to watch is a bad version of a game where whoever is the camera either knows where everything is, or it looks scripted.

Some movies that are shot with game graphics do it far better then what Doom seems to be aiming for. Take Red vs Blue for example. Red vs Blue is a series of movies shot using actual game footage. It is one of the better game movies around (even better then most Hollywood produced ones) and is both entertaining and graphically pleasing. Is it top of the line? No, it's Halo. A movie about Halo, done using Halo. God forbid this happen.

Red vs Blue is just one of many examples. There are good and bad ways to do this movie genre. Look at Final Fantasy. Imagine if they had shot this like the game. Every five seconds into the movie, the characters would all stop what they're doing as monsters appear and a fight ensues. I dunno about you, but that'd get old after, oh say, the first time.

Point is, Doom may be the same way. Sure, seeing the gun and hands like the game would be a cool gimmick...but I'm not playing the game. I'm watching a movie. If you're going to make it first person and give me a gun to see, give me the option to decide what gun. If I wanna pull out a knife and toss it at the nearest monster for giggles, let me do that. Hell, if I wanted t opull out the rocket launcher to completely disintegrate that annoying little frog, then I should be able to do that too!

Oh wait, I can't. This is a movie with a set plot, a set script, and actions that will never change. A movie that tries to be a game, and I have a feeling, fails.

Here's hoping Doom doesn't suck.

No, I say no to Titanic. I started playing WOW. If anyone plays I'm on the Mannaroth server, player name Trailofdead. My life is now over. I hate Oprah on her show the other day I noticed she had on some 9/11 victims family member for squandered 5 million dollars. I'm sorry she lost her husband but I will not feel sorry for her for her own stupidity. I bet Oprah saved her not with her own money, but probably with viewers money. I hate Oprah.

Long time no see. No laptop sucks. Anyway nothing really exciting in the news. Colts go 7 - 0 in a win against the Texans. Rosa Parks passed away at 92. The best thing this week Saw 2 opens this Friday, oh yes there will be blood! Ok, yea I know it will be bad, but the director is a Full Sail grad. Nothing much eles happening. Have a great and wounderful day!

Rosa Parks having died is a majorly...bad thing? Sorry, its early, I can't really find the words. Roger Ebert hated Doom (surprise, surprise). Seriously, though, Ms. Park's death was certainly a major loss. She was as much a historical figure as Martin Luther King, Jr. I know I learned as much about Rosa in school as I did other historical figures of that same period.

I love Jeb Bush's message to Florida regarding the Hurricane- "Stay inside if you can. This storm is dangerous."

What a marvelous world it is...

Last week the latest dvd package of "The Big Labowski" came out. Hardcore fans celebrated by going bowling. The actual guy "the dude" was based on was there as well, excited to buy the dvd and bowl.

I told you guys. This hurricane was nothing. Just lots of rain and wind. No damage though. Isn't the weather great though. I wish it was like this year round not the sweat box that Orlando really is.

Disney is going to use encrypted dvds to try and prevent pirating before films are released into theaters. Most companies are doing this now as well and have bought special dvd players to read these dvds. Won't last too long, someone will find a way to pirate them before coming to film.

So this weekend I saw the movie "Good Bye, and Good Luck." For those interested, the movie is a mix of beautiful images surrounded by a lackluster story. While the story itself is one that many can associate with, the delivery of it is slow at best and counterproductive at worse.

The movie itself is about a team of news reporters during the McCarthy era that chose to speak up against him. The movie itself was shown in black and white, and was lit in such a way that you knew exactly when the movie took place.

The individual characters themselves were rich and fulfilling, and everything was done as it would have been done at the time. Unfortunately, the tension was a bit lacking, as you didn't sympathize with some characters half the time. You couldn't help but know what was going to happen, and the times you didn't, you didn't really care.

All in all, the beauty of the movie makes up for its lacking story. If you are interested in one long voyage into the beauty of the moving picture, and less interested in the story, then this is the movie for you. Worth seeing at once on the big screen, but more likely then not worth owning.

Iraq approved the new constitution. It took 1,997 American lives and countless Iraqis to bring this country to its own democratic power. Once Parliamentary Elections are held on December 15th I have no doubt the U.S. will slowly begin withdrawing. Wether you agree with the war or not, it's simply a fact that the world is better off with a free state in the midst of the Arab nations.
