Come On PEOPLE!!!

I must start off this entry by stating that I LOVED the movie The Dark Knight. It was a breath off fresh air in what seems to be a slipping of quality in movie entertainment.

Okay, now into my rant.

I have been reading a lot of articles pertaining to the appropriateness of the movie for children. I can not be the only person smart enough to read a rating! The movie is PG-13. Apparently, some parents have forgotten or were just never taught that PG-13 means that movie content may not be appropriate for those under the age of 13. Now, I believe that it is a parent's choice as to whether or not they take their children to a PG-13 movie, but when they start to complain that they brought their kids (under 13) thinking that it was going to be a nice, happy-go-lucky, bunny, fluffy movie, then they should be slapped. Where did common sense go?

The article goes on to suggest that the reason the movie is so detrimental is because the "action" isn't violence, per se, but of the heart. "There is no hope for the city." What? Did we see the same movie? The entire plot is based on the fact that even in the face of evil, people can make the right choice; a city can fight against evil tyranny. If there ever was a time for such a morally stand out movie that The Dark Knight is (surprisingly), it is now! Introducing the thought provoking questions asked in the movie to teens and young adults is not only appropriate, but down right necessary since many "main stream" parents won't do it. They are the generation shaping the world and, frankly, I would rather have them believing that people are mostly good and that evil can be conquered.

Okay... thanks for letting me vent... Go see the movie... It really is excellent and we should support the good entertainment in hopes that the law of supply and demand will take effect on Hollywood and produce more good quality entertainment.

Please rate and comment on any videos you watch. Thanks and enjoy!


So my new found talent/obsession/hobby is making videos. I have a program that I can put music, audio, video, text, pictures, narration, etc. in to and turn it into something that I think is pretty neat. After my videos are made, I upload them to YouTube. Here in lies my frustration today. I have just finished a video with my brother's music in it and have started to upload it. Under the little box where you find the pathway to your video on your computer, there is a little comment saying, "Please, be patient. This may take several minutes." Several minutes my foot! For a video four minutes in length, it seems to take half an hour! It's okay, I can wait. I have my work done, so I don't have much else to do, but GRRRRRR!!!!!

I will be linking to the video (when it finally finishes uploading) and my YouTube channel in my next post.
