99 Problems

I had started a post a day or so ago, typically (of late anyway) it was somewhat whiny, slightly philosophical; a dubious contribution to literature.

Then I watched a documentary about Burma, shot in secret by a man who risked prison by taking video of daily life in his own country.

That’s what real problems look like.

Pretty Freakin Ninja

Ninja Assassin is all sorts of awesome. Especially the performance of (Korean pop star) Rain, I’m not a huge fan of his music, but he’s not a bad actor by any standard and he’s a more-than-passable martial artist.

Plus, I freakin love ninjas.

Other ninja movies just don’t do the super badass ninja justice: this one makes them into super villains without peer.

And Rain isn’t just one of these insanely kick-ass ninja assassins he’s a ninja assassin…yeah he’s the guy who kills the most lethal badasses ever, and he fights a lot of them all at once, all by his onesies.

Savvy?

(Yeah it sounds kinda familiar to me too.)

I’m enamored, and incredibly jealous that I wasn’t kidnapped as a toddler by one of the nine clans and taught the way of the shadow warrior.

Just sayin.

strange days

My title is from the movie, however I’ve always thought that the movie could have been better, maybe they’ll remake it. Apparently Hollywood is out of fresh ideas.

I’ve got no real reason for this post other than the fact that I said I would try to post weekly (weakly) and I’ve been slacking. Oh and I think I might name my first born Bruce Wayne.

Keep it real kids,
