Brain Cells vs. Star Wars

More precisely, Star Wars Episode V... when Luke is attacked by the Wampa and lost in the snowy desert of Hoth.

My uncle, yesterday having a few beers at a friend's place for a little get-together, reminded me of something my father used to say. His reference was towards a character he knew "back-in-the-day" that was a little off. A friend, Andy, had concluded that the man had two brain cells, because it takes one to be lost, and one to collide with it and have a thought. *Pardon if I've slaughtered it at all. If I have, who the Hell cares besides my uncle? He'll come in, correct it (humorously I might add) in a comment, and we'll all be far better off and no further along than prior anyways having read his brilliant comment >_>!*

My father always insisted, "I've got at least two brain cells... one got lost, and the other got lost looking for it." It took me until yesterday to find a parallel in film (albeit not perfect, but good enough). Anyone not familiar with Star Wars (damn you chumps!) need only know of the aforementioned attack on Luke after he wandered off to investigate what he thought was a meteor, when he was attacked. Han Solo abandoned his departure of the island in hopes to pay off his debt, to go search for Luke. Luke had escaped from the Wampa's cave with his Jedi Mind Trick, and ventured out into a blizzard, collapsing. Han finds Luke half-conscious, and rescues him... but is now lost himself. The trip back would be far too dangerous, they must wait for a pilot to find and pick them up the following morning.

Now I'm not suggesting one of my father's two brain-cells were attacked by a Wampa and lost in a blizzard, while the other is knight in bad-ass-vest Han Solo... but perhaps my father's able to do Jedi Mind Tricks (since his focus is very limited due to the lack of other brain cells) like that idiot Luke Skywalker.

Here's hoping I never have to see my father in ballerina pants, cowboy boots, and a Gi >_>.

Tattoos And The Idiots Who Have Them

More and more in recent weeks, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. I’ve got no problems with people getting tattoos, so long as they actually have some kind of meaning to the person other than “I paid for it” or “it’s on me now so that’s what it means to me” or “it looked awesome”. More and more I see people tattooing the most random things to their body, most people covering their body with the nonsense… and more and more, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. Thank a friend via Twitter recently for showing me a picture of some idiot tattooing stars up and down the side of his face. This began my rant against face tattoos. If you’re in a profession or religion where it’s deemed appropriate, fine… tribal tattoos don’t necessarily cause this reaction for me. I also would never have the balls to call Mike Tyson a fool for tattooing his face. But if you’re just a run-of-the-mill Joe… you shouldn’t be tattooing your face with anything.

Track Title: Fuck You Artist: Cee-Lo Green Thoughts: This song is just... incredible. Cee-Lo is an amazing artist, and this track continues to display that. Lyrically, he says everything that needs to be said, and his vocal game is crazy. Great beat, catchy as hell... ...FUCK YOOUUUUUUUU! OOOO-OO-OOOOOOOOO!
