Damn You iTunes!

So the latest version of iTunes for some reason removed all my music from it. The program was pestering me to download the last version, and I kept ignoring it, but it wouldn’t go away, so I just gave in and downloaded it. Now I have to rebuild my music library on iTunes all over again. I fucking hate iTunes.

I wish I had a program that would allow me to put music on my iPod, that wasn’t iTunes. Is there such a program, or Apple make iPod management only available on iTunes?

Fuckers!

X-Men: Days of Future Past (review)

Finally saw X-Men today, and sadly, it wasn’t as good as I thought it would be. I still like it better than X-Men 3 and both Wolverine movies, but X2: United is still my favorite X-Men movie.

Days of Future Past had a great cast and cool story, but all the inconsistencies with time and the previous movies just kept me from fully enjoying the movie and the ending was kind of hard to believe.

I don’t what to leave without pointing out some of the highlights of the movie. I was glad to see Colossus and Iceman back in action. Hugh Jackman as Wolverine is always good, and new comer Quicksilver was cool too. Too bad it won’t be the same guy in Avengers 2. Also surprise appearances by some of our favorite mutants, and finally, a cool setup for X-Men: Apocalypse.

SPOILER ALTER

Just so you understand what I’m talking about I will give some examples of the inconsistencies. First off, William Stryker. In X-Men: First Class he is shown as an old man, so why the fuck does he look like he is in his late 20s ten years later?

Also, we have Wolverine’s claws. Why are they still adamantium in the future, when they were cut off in The Wolverine? He should have his bone claws again. The adamantium wouldn’t regenerate, only his bones would.

Adorable

This collection of photos is so adorable. It is so cute seeing animals that would normally be enemies, be such good friends. I love the bear with the lion and tiger because he was named after Balou from The Jungle Book. Here is another example of animals being friends, when one should be trying to eat the other.

Why can’t us, humans, learn some hung from these animals? Why must we be enemies? I know it sounds kind of hippie, but why can’t we be friends? Why is it in our nature to destroy ourselves?

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (review)

This morning, I said, enough is enough and went to go see Amazing Spider-Man 2. I saw it alone, but I didn’t care. I was just glad to see the movie and get out of the house.

As the title says, it was “Amazing”! Like I said before, Andrew Garfield is spectacular as both Peter Parker and Spider-Man. He’s a lovable dork, course he didn’t seem like a dork in this film, compared to the first one, but he was still lovable. He’s a cool Peter Parker, not a whiny little bitch Peter Parker, like Tobey Maguire made Peter Parker seem. As Spider-Man, Garfield nails it every time. He’s kind of a loud mouth and always cracking jokes. That is the kind of person Spider-Man appeared to me to be in the comics.

I was a little skeptical at first, about Jamie Fox, as Electro, but I thought he did a very nice job with his character. You really see how he changes from idolizing Spider-Man, to despising him. Green Goblin was cool too. Although, he did kind of look like the leprechaun from those horror movies, at least they don’t give him a shitty mask like they did with Willem Dafoe.

Overall, this movie and it’s predecessor, are the best Spider-Man movies. Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy doesn’t even exist to me anymore. I did miss the traditional Bruce Campbell cameo in Raimi’s movies, but I can live without it.

How Long Is Too Long?

So I finally did it, I got out of room and went outside, for, I think, the first time since I got back from vacation. I actually took the trolley and walked somewhere. I didn’t drive.

While on the trolley, my eyes began to wander to this attractive girl sitting across from me. She was wearing a short skirt, and she wasn’t crossing her legs, so with out thinking my eyes went straight to her hoo-ha. I immediately felt like a pig because I know that is not what a gentleman does, and I like to think of myself as a gentleman. Luckily, she didn’t notice me staring, but I then kept staring at her pretty face. How long does it take a woman to get crept out by a man staring at her?

Then later on, when I was walking home, I walked past a couple, and I kept glancing at the girl. That happens to me a lot. What is a reasonable amount of time to stare at the girlfriend before the boyfriend notices, or the girlfriend gets crept out and tells her boyfriend? I’m not saying I stare at pretty women all the time. I’m just saying sometimes my eyes wander.

Does It Really Work That Way?

Every Friday and Saturday night, I think about showering, shaving, getting dressed up and heading down to the local bar, and see if any woman actually come up to me and start up a conversation. Then every Friday and Saturday night, I pussy out and end up in bed watch TV.

I want to at least give it one shot to see what happens. My therapist always told me, what is the worst that can happen? I never have a good enough answer, so I have no reason not to at least try it once. I may be surprised to find out that women may actually come up to me.

Maybe it’s not wise to go to a bar alone, though. I probably need a wing man, but I have no friends, so I’m shit out of luck there. I only have my brother, but he lives in NY, and my cousin, who can be a douche at times. I wish Barney Stinson was real and I wish I was friends with him. He could get me laid.

THAT MOVIE SUCKED!

I was watching TV, just flipping the channels , when I came across some people talking about Napoleon Dynamite and how it is such a funny movie. I could not disagree more. It is the dumbest fucking movie I’ve ever seen.

I was in college, when a friend of mine said I had to see it. They said it was so funny. I thought I would give it a shot, so I rented it and now I can’t get back that hour and 22 minutes I wasted watching that piece of shit. I don’t think I laughed once. I told my friend that she owed me the $3 for making me rent that awful movie. I’m still waiting for to collect.

Chocolate Cover Things

I’ve been wanting to do another cooking blog post, but I didn’t know what I to make. I was at the dollar store the other day and thought, why not cover a bunch of things in chocolate? I bought sour gummi worms, cheese balls, pretzel sticks, honey roasted peanuts, and generic goldfish crackers.

When I made the chocolate cover pretzels a couple months ago, I used semisweet chocolate chips, so it tasted more like dark chocolate to me. I don’t like dark chocolate, so I thought I would experiment. I added a 1\4 cup of milk to the chips when I put them in the microwave. I also added some sugar. I found the chips melted a lot faster and it did taste better, so I could start dipping everything.

I dipped a little bit of everything. When I was done, I put everything in the freezer to harden. The chocolate didn’t get as hard as before. It was more of a frosting consistency. Now I know, not to add milk.

Even though, the chocolate wasn’t hardened, the experiment of different snacks in chocolate was a success. The gummi worms are good in chocolate, and so are the goldfish, pretzel sticks, and the cheese balls. We already know chocolate cover peanuts are awesome, but know I know honey roasted peanuts covered in chocolate are even better.
