It’s Not Worth “Knowing”

I felt like seeing a movie today, so I went and saw Nicolas Cage’s latest movie “Knowing.” I did not read the review first, but the trailer looked cool.



It was not worth seeing the movie. Some of the special effects were cool, like the plane crash and the subway crash. And the fire scene at the end was cool, too. (Okay, the last video was not actually from the movie, but you get the idea.)

The idea of the movie was that a girl wrote down on paper 50 years ago a list of numbers containing the dates and death tolls of every major disaster for the next 50 years. But how did the kid know? The list is put into a time capsule, which is opened 50 years later. Nicolas’ son brings move the list from school, and Nicolas figurers out what the numbers mean. And only three events are left. Then what happens? The end of the world?

Where did the numbers come from the in first place? The girl heard the numbers in her head. From whom? In the current time, the same people are talking to Nicolas’ son. What are they? Angels? Aliens? They sort of remind me of these guys:



I’m watching the movie, and hoping that Nicolas figures out what the last disaster on the list is, and how to stop it. Well, he figures it out, but it is the end of the world, so he can’t stop that. Oh no! So what was the point of the list? “You’re gonna die; we just wanted you to know.”

Well, not exactly. The aliens/angels which can tell the future, know the world is going to end. And they want to save some of us. (And some rabbits, it seems.) But they can only take children on their space ship for some reason. The list, and talking to the children, was a way to get them to the place where the space ship would be. They could not just take the children; that would not be nice. They had talk in their heads, to make them want to go with them.

How is that better? Making the kids think they are crazy? (After all, they started doing this 50 years early for some reason.) But that’s aliens for you.

The movie just did not have much of a point to it. It was a waste of my time and money.

France's Current Top 20 Popular Songs

I first compiled this list back in August. I thought it would be fun to see what is in the top 20 now in France. Here is the French Top 20 for the week ending March 28, 2009.

I found the list at: www.lescharts.com.

In the past, I used YouTube to find the videos for the songs. Since then, I found it easier to find videos for other country's songs on DailyMotion.

Here are the songs:

Bad Week for Investments



Photo by marksweb

The bad news is that my 401k has dropped due to the stock market.

The good news I was able to get my money out of it before it dropped more.

The bad news is I did not know what to invest the money into.

The good news is that I decided to invest in beer with it.

The bad news is that the beer may go bad before I can drink all of it.

The good news is that I could only afford to buy a six pack!

Bumper Cars for the Rich

What do you do if you have lots of money to waste, and want to have fun? Play bumper cars, of course. But use yachts instead. Your friends will love it!

Classical Music

Classical music has been used over the years in movies. And at times, it is given an "updated" version for the times.

Deodato - Also sprach Zarathustra

The theme to 2001: A Space Odyssey. Deodata created this funky version of the piece in 1973.




Walter Murphy & the Big Apple Band - A Fifth Of Beethoven

The 7" version of the song. Walter Murphy made a disco version of classical music songs in 1976. The album had the same name as this song.
