Sunday, January 28, 2007I know i probably don't have any readers anymore and that this will be pointless to say.. But nevertheless..
I've just seen what I consider a good and creative movie, which somehow draws me to my digital home, My blog.
(It might shock some of you that the movie I was just watching was "the red dragon" the "follow-up" to Hannibal. Where the intellectual cannibal Hannibal Lecter, yet again, almost manages to kill the f.b.i agent that almost caught him, it really is a good movie you know.. I bet the book, if there is a book, is good too.
Hannibal is a good movie to by the way, and anthony hopkins a brilliant actor.
If you by now have jumped to the conclusion that I'm a sick human being, you may or may not be right, as I'm in the process of finding out now.)
I know i almost never write anything here anymore, the motivation for it is somewhat lacking because it seems that noone really cares if i write here or not, and in the end. Thats why I'm here, I want you to read and comment on my writings, not because I'm a control freak and want to "fuck" with your minds. Simply because a large percentage of bloggers are more than averagely gifted with brains, And this offers an unique opportunity to "reach out" to someone I feel more akin to than people I know "in the real world".
And besides, if I'm going to be a Writer, I might as well start somewhere, and for some reason, I believe a blog is a good place to start.
If I do have any readers left, I hope you have coped in the absence of new posts, I hope that this post will mean a change in the trend I've been having lately, to drop out on the things I really want to get done. (Practicing playing the base, writing posts on my blog, add a few pages to my book/short story, and work out)
I'll keep any readers informed of the "make over" I'm going to enforce on my way of living.
Keep your minds keen, allthough this won't be seen, you never know when its your turn to be terrorised by the mean.
*Laughing* wow.. Was that crap or what ?
No matter how good or bad that poem was, the importance is of this is certainly existent, as "loosing your head" in difficult situations, or not being able to come through difficult situations because of an untrained mind, could prove to be a person's downfall.
It seems my mind could need some training as I don't seem to realize how to get readers to my blog that will actually stay readers for a longer period of time than the counter on a "blog traffic exchange".
As it is this means to me, all my work on this blog is wasted, all my time spent writing, designing and surfing, all wasted, since I am unable to reach out to the readers in the way I'd like to.
If I only got like 2-3 "permanent" readers, I'd have no grudges whatsoever, to go back to blogging on a regular basis, the thing is, I'm writing this blog for myself, but for it to have the wanted effect(kind of self therapy really) I think I'd need some very deep and intellectual comments..
Just joking, but some comments would be nice though, and if you just read through it, I'll be more than satisfied with that.
Well, now that I've told you my excuse for not blogging on a regular basis anymore, I think I'll perhaps try and add a new part to "The retired assasin" series, which noone seems to like/read/look at the title.
Nevertheless, here it goes, and I really truthfully, hope you like it, wait a second her matey! The review comes first!(Mostly all "very very bad writing" comes from my very lacking Englich vocabulary, as my primary language is Norwegian not english, so if you have any suggestions for improvement when it comes to choice of words, please refer to this in a comment with what would be your choice of words, and a precise definition of this/these word(s).)
Review of "The Red Dragon":
The retired agent that put Hannibal Lecter away for life, is contacted by one of his former partners, about a serial killer case he's assigned to. During a thrilling chain of events,(for instance where their plan to get the killer out in the open backfires, and gets an irritating journalist killed.) the retired agent, finds out that Hannibal tries to have his family murdered, via the serial killer, who apparently is a big fan of Hannibal Lecter and his work, this new serial killer believes he is transforming into a dragon, by killing (what he calls transforming) women, and just killing (not transforming) their families. The serial killer meets a blind woman who treats him kindly, and there were at least strong indications that she also had sex with him, through this, the serial killer does not want to become the red dragon anymore, and tries to stop the transformation by eating the original picture of the red dragon.(The red dragon is the name of a picture which he has tattooed over the entire backside of his body.) But, when the serial killer was away, someone the blind woman used to see as a "creep with a constant hard-on" somehow persuades her to let him take her home and stopping for dinner along the way. And the serial killer sees this as betrayal and shoots the man.
I will not tell you more of the plot, and definately not the end. If you have not seen it you should see it, and fast! As I mentioned earlier I think this is a very good movie.
Some of the reasons I think this movie is above average:
First of all there is a lot of good actors in the movie, and no, I do not (like some people) refer to famous actors, I simply refer to people who are good at acting. For example: one of my favourite actors is in it, Anthony Hopkins, he's one of my favourite actors partly based on his permformance in the movie called "Hannibal" the movie preceding this one in the "series". I do not think that many people would argue against a claim that he's a good actor, but if you disagree, you can post a comment.
Secondly, I like the story of the movie.
Thirdly, I think there are a lot of good lines in the movie, like when Hannibal says something similar to this: the weight of imagination is fear.
These three factors and more make this movie more than worth watching, sadly it reveals who the killer is quite early, but in despite of that there are many surprises in the movie. I reccomend viewing it in a relatively dark room, late in the evening or even the night.
Now, before you walk away from your computer to rent/buy "The Red Dragon", read the newest part of the retired assasin, and I also hope that you will take time to comment on the new part of the retired assasin before you go out to rent or buy the movie/ something else.
"The 'retired' assasin", Part 7(may add more later)
Sarize was standing there, breathing hard trying to drag the enemy general out of his saddle or freeing her blade from his wooden shield, both scenarios seemed impossible though, and those two scenarios being her only hope to survive this battle, it could not be helped.
Time seemingly slowed down to a point where the blink of an eye lasted seconds, and all sounds were blocked out, the only thing she could see was the general slowly rasing his sword-hand to deal the last and deadly blow, she could not let go of the sword and run since this would cause here to die at someone elses hands and she could neither pull her sword loose of his shield, or pull the muscular general out of his saddle, the only thing she could do was stand and watch the deadly sword arise, and then begin the curve that would end at her throat, in the middle of that deadly curve, Rendal appeared, whirling his special battlestaff as usual, but this time he was looking more purposeful than she had ever seen him before. He frowned quickly as if wondering how to save her, she allready new this was impossible as the General had already started swinging his sword towards her. Suddenly Rendals staff blurred past her, at a speed that seemed close to impossible, and missed the sword by a hand, but hitting the hand, had not been Rendals target it seemed, because the sword racing toward her throat suddenly stopped, and was dropped when the hand was janked back by the body which was falling out of the saddle, Sarize had already unknowingly dropped her two handed sword, so she caught the general's sword in mid air and walked over to the unconscious body of the general, and picked his horn of retreat of his leather belt. The sun showing that only minutes had passed surpised her as she walked the trampled grass over to Rendal and handed him the horn. As Rendal sounded the horn, a harsh schreeching sound spread throughout the battle, and everywhere, the armoured army of the "king of the thieves" was retreating. "Leave them be," Rendal shouted, "Let the cowardly thieves run, and tell their comrades in arms what awaits them if they plan on attacking us again!" As cheers of victory spread throughout the newmade muddy wasteland, Rendal and Sarize lifted the unconcious general onto his horse, and rendal tied him to it. "We need information." Rendal said to answer Sarize's questioning gaze, "I believe this was only a small part of the army the thieves can present in times of need." Always playing the warrior, Sarize thought to herself, and so young too, too young. She thought sadly, but yet she could not help but admire his ability to stay focused in times of need, espescially at his age.
The cheering soon stopped though, even though this had been a surprisingly easy victory, many had lost their friends, and seeing all the dead and badly hurt, had the effect of removing cheeriness from a human being. Most of the soldiers stood still and made a simple sign of respect to those who passed away, while the others where tending to the wounded and dead lying in the mud.
Rendal however was walking restlessly around and trying to comprehend why the king did not send more soldiers, as he would have heard from the generals on the loosing side that his host was huge.
Perhaps there was a traitor among them...
The end of this part, as of this hour. I cannot guarantee that I will not add more to it later or that I will, so I reccomend that you check in on this blog again if you liked what I have written so far.
Now please make a serious, and long comment.
That's all for now,
