There come times when we all need a change. A change from what has become habit. From what has become too routine. I am pretty sure that I am having one of those weekends. I just returned, actually less than 15 minutes ago to be quite honest from a trip with my friend Kyle to Ft. Wayne. We went to Red Robin. Yep, we drove about an hour sand 45 minutes each way to get a hamburger. But not only just a hamburger, one of the best burgers that I’ve had in a long time.While we originally went to Ft. Wayne for no particular reason at all other than the trip, we quickly decided that Red Robin was the place to go. We got lost, for a bit, but we found it. We walked around the mall for a bit and then went to eat. Good times.
I feel refreshed to be quite honest. I feel like a change has been made and it’s a good thing. This weekend was not my usual habits and rituals. I didn’t really have any plans going into Friday evening , that changed of course and things are pretty dang good right now.
Although I feel kind of hyper at the moment, I feel totally drained so I’m going to head over the TV and then crash on the couch for a while. Hope you all had a wonderful weekend too!
Crash (2004) Sandra Bullock, Brendan Fraser, Matt Dillon, Ryan Phillippe.
Several stories interweave during two days in Los Angeles involving a collection of inter-related characters, a black police detective with a drugged out mother and a thieving younger brother, two car thieves who are constantly theorizing on society and race, the distracted district attorney and his irritated and pampered wife, a racist veteran cop (caring for a sick father at home) who disgusts his more idealistic younger partner, a successful black Hollywood director and his wife who must deal with racist cop, a Persian-immigrant father who buys a gun to protect his shop, a Hispanic locksmith and his young daughter who is afraid of bullets, and more.
This is a movie that totally hits at the racial prejudices that I think almost everyone has. There are Asian-Americans that some of us think we can’t understand, there are African-Americans that feel intimidated to be in a white part of town, just before they steal a car. There are African-Americans who are racially profiled by police. There are police officers who are so scared to admit that they are really prejudice deep down that they end up shooting first and asking questions later. There are… well alot of people who don’t realize how prejudice they are against everyone else.
I think this movie was actually really good, the story was a bit weird at times but all in all a good flick.
If you’re into having your own prejudices towards people of other races and ethnicities questioned this is a movie for you. If you’re into movies with a little bit of action and a good bit of drama, check this out.
Work: fixed the router, it’s a big deal. Cheap parts, quick install, piece of cake.
Haircut: Umm… it’s cut?
School: Free Pizza day! Thanks Kyle. Class was boring, but at least it was short.
Home: Watching Crash from Netflix. Going to bed soon ’cause I’m tired of today
