As is now widely known, Saddam Hussein, genocidal extraordinaire, is to be executed within the next 30 days.
In my opinion, executing Saddam just makes him a martyr. In fact, I think it shows just how weak Iraq’s government remains. If they truly wanted to punish Saddam, they’d just keep him in prison for the rest of his life and let him suffer.
I saw Rocky Balboa yesterday. I’ve never seen any of the other Rocky movies, so I didn’t exactly know what to expect, but knowing the general idea of the series, I thought it was pretty good. Come on, the classic training montage with the instantly-recognizable theme song, and the slow-motion fight scenes? Priceless!
Even though some of the dialogue was fairly cliché, and the story was pretty basic, it’s definitely worth checking out if you’re in need of a fun, mindless action flick.
Merry Christmas! Ahhh, ’tis my favorite time of the year; what beats getting great presents and eating a big hunk of meat, all in the same day? Woohoo!
Whether a current user, or unaware of its existence, now’s a better time than ever to check out the social news site Digg.com.
Today the site rolled out a slew of new features. There’s an interesting refreshed/new design with added color and a reconstructed layout, a podcast section, and a built-in video player to display linked videos from select providers directly within the site, among other things.
For a video explaining and demonstrating everything, check out this post on the the official Digg blog.
I like Thursdays, because before there is Friday, there is Thursday. Thursdays make you realize that life is always a matter of waiting, and waiting, and waiting. Thursdays are always dreaming of how wonderful the next thing will be, but that to get there you first must endure what lies between. It is what lies between, the substance that fills these isolated points, that is life. So make the most of Thursdays, because even though Friday is tomorrow, we still have an entire day ahead of us.
As a personal sidenote, I fully intend to keep blogging. For the past month and a half, I’ve been in a rut in regards to writing, and life has been really hectic. Things are now going more smoothly, so I’m glad to be back.
