Some of my favorite movie scenes

As many of you know, I am a nerd. I love superhero, SciFi, and action movies. So I was farting around YouTube and I thought it would be fun to do a post from some of my favorite scenes of some of my favorite movies. Here are my top 3. 1. Superman's debut Need I say more. The greatest introduction to the greatest superhero of all time. 2. The end of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade The perfect end to the perfect trilogy. To this day, I still get pumped up watching Indy riding off into the sunset, with his theme blaring. It's the hero shot. 3. Darth Vader turns good. The original Star Wars trilogy was so very good, and this was the apex of it. When Darth Vader turns to save Luke from the Emperor. As a child I remember jumping up and down with excitement over this. P.S. If you are ever looking for great workout music, the Indiana Jones and Superman themes are awesome. You get that extra shot of adrenaline. P.P.S. For some reason the format is not working for me. I'll try and adjust. My apologies

Too Much Consumerism?

My cousin Matt recently wrote a very interesting blog. The title of the blog is Consuming versus Creating. As the title suggests he discusses consumerism, and the nature of creating. After reading the post, I remembered a documentary I saw a few years ago called The Corporation. The documentary focuses on the history on the corporation in America. If you have not seen it, you can watch the entire documentary for free on YouTube. It’s well worth the watch. There’s a part in the documentary that talks about this very issue. Below is the video; you can find the exact part at around 20:30. It is a great reminder for me that we need to give back to the earth. We are always taking, taking, and taking from its natural resources. We need to stop consuming so much and begin to give back more to our fragile Eco-system. One of the conclusions the documentary comes to, is one that I think most would agree too. Money cannot be our ultimate goal for success. If we continue to make money the sole goal, then we are dooming ourselves. Let’s aim higher than money. Let’s set goals of education, art, music, and etc. things to strive for. Here's the trailer to the Corporation too, if you are interested.

Behind the 8 Ball, I know

The show Community is amazing!!!! Yes I know, I am behind the 8-ball, but better late than never right? It's just like 30 Rock. It rewards its viewers who started at the beginning with references built up as the story progresses. Like little hidden jokes for the cool kids, and I am now a part of the cool kids group. (Thank you Kevin Shannon) I'm only in season 1, but I am hooked. God Bless Hulu+ for having the entire series on its service. I would be lost without you. If you have not seen, I highly recommend. Until then, enjoy this little video.
