Valkyrie

ValkyrieI _hate_ Tom Cruise. But this movie. Amazing! Read about some of the background here.

At the height of WW2, a group of high-ranking German officers hatched a plot to assassinate Adolf Hitler, and seize power of the military command in order to end the war. The operation was codenamed “Valkyrie”, for the emergency plan that was meant to be used in case of a revolt against the Nazi government. This plan had been modified by the conspirators to ensure their success, but for various reasons the plot failed when finally carried out on 20 July 1944. The conspirators of the inner circle were shot after a kangaroo trial or sentenced to death soon after.

Anyone who knows me, knows that I _love_ this time period and the history associated with it. This film really delivered in this area. I am excited to do some research to see how much of this was all true and what was made up for dramatic scenes. It was so well done that even though we all knew the ending, you were really pulling for them the whole time hoping that they would succeed!

Very good movie, I highly suggest checking it out.

A Love to Hide

Wow. A Love to Hide

A young gay couple and their Jewish friend face persecution from the Nazis in 1940s Paris. Philippe and Jean hide their love from both their families and the occupying Germans. When Jean’s childhood sweetheart, a Jew, shows up after her family is killed, the two take her in. But now their secret life as members of the “third sex” becomes harder to conceal, especially from Jean’s Nazi-sympathizing family.

This is one moving movie. Just amazingly written and acted in.

Seriously. I dunno what to say. I just finished this movie and it has to be added to everyone’s watch lists. It’s right up there with Schindler’s List.

Wow….

Royality

What an excellent weekend!

Let’s see, Friday we were going to go to GGB. But Jason talked me out of it because he said that the line was going to be too long. Either way, Constantine and I ended up staying in and watching a movie called Driving Lessons. It was pretty entertaining.

Saturday we got up and went shopping. I spent the last of my Best Buy gift card. I really hate that store. Such over priced Crap. Constantine bought a new Apple Macbook! Yay for him! I also got a new mouse for my computer and bought the new Futurama Movie. We watched it on Sunday and it was pretty good.

After that we headed to Inglewood to look at an apartment complex that was for sale. Sooo ghetto. That night we had a dinner party at Jason’s, his cousin was there and we played Catch Phrase. I came up with the word “Royality” and to answer “Dime a dozen” I said, “Hookers!” Very funny times!

Sunday Constantine and I went hiking looking for this Nazi camp called Murphys Ranch where some crazy lady built a hige mansion with tons of neat underground stuff. We never did find it. Googled it when we got home and found out that we were on the wrong side of the canyon. Stopped at El Burrito on the way home and ran into Jason and his cousin again.

Obama Wins Iowa!

Good job Iowa… with the whole Obama thing. Not so much on the Huckabee…. WTF were you thinking?

I’m glad that Obama won there and that Hillary was in second, although if things continue like this, that probably means Hillary would be vice-president… Anyways, I really don’t like that woman, I don’t want to see her in the White House.

But the whole Hukabee? WTF! I’m glad to see that Ron Paul got 10% of the votes, 6% more then Giuliani got. Ron Paul is great. lol

I found this thing on Digg yesterday about companies that helped and were built by Nazi Germany, pretty interesting read.

The last few days have been interesting. I worked in Temecula yesterday. Annoying ass drive! 180 miles in one day for a commute! The office out there is disgusting as well! Only two people work there, but there’s 6 computer terminal/desk things. There’s soda can’s and water bottles piled everywhere and nasty stains on the carpet! The two room office has only a SMALL window in the corner, which was covered up so basically no sunlight gets into the office at all. I sure hope I _NEVER_ have to go back to that gross place!

Constantine comes back tonight which is exciting, and tomorrow we have a dinner party with some of his friends. That will be fun to meet more of them. Then next weekend we are heading out to Vegas to meet up with Zach and Amanda, that will also be exciting. I’m really looking forward to it!

I’ve found some other fun articles lately.

Adios!

Around The Globe My Life

Vacation from Vacation!

Ok, well I’m back in Cali everyone.

I had a GREAT time back home. But I’m so socially exhausted. So much shit going on back there, so many great friends, great boys, great people!

Lets see, highlights:

Friday: Hung out with Angel, helped her move. Met the new guy, who’s very nice and cool. Had them over to my place that night and we all got drunk

Saturday: Hung out with the Parents, went hiking with them and got interviewed by the DM Register. My mommy got quoted! Went to sushi with them that night and then went out with David at the Frat, had an amazing time. It’s nice being back cause I’m the new hot guy, and everyone wants to talk to me. 🙂 David kept getting all these boys trying to get him to introduce me to them. So that felt nice. 🙂 I also got really drunk and then drove home! So much fun. haha.

Sunday: Hung out with the PU’s again, we went to the new Science center to the Titanic Exhibit. I lived! Went out to dinner with them again. Our waiter told us like every 5 minutes that his name was Dwaine. My dad made fun of him. He was REALLY cute though. 🙂 After that Ginny came over and we went hot tubbing. I was really tired so she didn’t stay too long.

Monday-Wed: Spent these days down at the Grandparents. Had fun times with them. Went out hiking, learned about the Blow Job girl, ate TONS of cookies and other yummy yummy food. Also read a lot. It was a bit stressful bieng down there and having to make all the small talk with them. Oh, also planted lots of flowers and did some other general yard work. Played with Gpa’s guns some. My Gpa has a derringer, which I want so bad! Apparently someone also stole a Nazi Gunbelt from him too, cause he can’t find it anywhere.

WedNight: I went out to the Parade with my cousin and the child. We had a good time, but the parade was way too long.

Thursday: I spent most of the day at home, that night I went out with Zach, Nic, Mandy, and Mellisa. Some random straight boy talked to us all at The Lift. Yay for cheap martinis! We also hit up the Royal Mile that night! 🙂

Friday: I got up fairly early, went to the fair with the cousin and the child, had a good time there. Then took her home and then met up with Angel again and we went back to the fair. Had some more fun and looked at all the HOT Iowa farm boys! Yum yum! After that I went to Angel’s showered and then met up with David, Dusty and Jen at the Frat. Had another great night.. Was out till about 5am, went home and finished packing then went to the airport. Got back to cali about noon.

The new airport stuff is stupid as hell! I walked RIGHT THROUGH security with a Nalgene full of water, no one even blinked. So cleary they are not doing much really about this. Then, apparently you can’t even take water, food, etc onto the plane that you BUY in the airport! WHAT?! This is retarded. Then once we got to LAX, they were searching EVERYONE’s carry one right before getting on the plane. I think this is overkill AND Stupid! Ugh!

I found some fun new websites too:

1) Amazing fast change.

2) FareCompare.

3) AirFareWatchdog.

4) BlueFly.

5) StubHub.

6) TheaterMania.

7) SmartDecorating.

Oh, and I am NOT a fucking jungle gym. I was sitting on the floor in Phoenix, and this small child came up to me and just stood there staring at me. I was like, “Hi” and then went back to reading my book. Then he started grabbing at my book. (He couldn’t have been more then 2). By this time the mother came over and started talking to me, I replied to her, but acted annoyed. She said that he kid likes to tear pages out of books. I was like.. “Great, then get the fucker away from my book”… Well I didn’t really say that, but it’s what I thought. So I just handed him my bookmark, hoping that would make him happy and he’d wonder away.

Nope, then he started CRAWLING all over me! I was like. GET THIS CHILD OFF ME. How could a parent seriously let the child do that shit. How fucking annoying.

Ugh.

Anywyas, I’ve spent the rest of the weekend hanging out at home. I’ve really needed some alone time.

Adios ya’ll!
