As always dependable old me w/ the long time no post trend I always have.
I felt the urge to write even though i have a bazzilion things stressing me out and taking up my time as of late. Besides the always long ass hours of dealing w/ the war daily at work while simotaniously watching the big screen in the room w/ the news channels getting everything we do here wrong I now have to go to the damn soldier of the month board which i dont really need right now cause its memorizing alot of crap i really dont need right now and detracting from my work and that little sleep thing i tend to enjoy. It's like "hey i know your all busy fighting a war and all but lets do this useless crap while you do that". Come on now people! And my oly relief i see on the horizon is the fact that i only have like 58 days left in this dustbowl before i can go home and relax for a little bit. Well I will go more in depth into that when i am finally coming home. think of that as the preview of the full review of the whole deployment book im gonna rant on about when the time comes.
Thanks again to darktool for the awesome new music and movies while i was back home on leave. For those that didnt even realize i was there on leave I'm sorry about that but it was more for me and Emily but I will be comeing back to hampton roads for at least a week after i get back home. Bobbie has me listening to alot of great new stuff. lol he even had stuff i asked for that he didnt even like. right now I've been listening to alot of Ade Fenton,Apocalyptica, Dethklok (Go Forth and Die is the best song to listen to when doing combat take off and landings in a C-130), Lumsk (one of my new favorites), Opeth, Theater of Tragedy, and so much more that is just too much to list. Honestly music is what keeps me actually sane over here. also bought a few new movies over at the Hadji shop to watch.
We actually have a real movie theater on base and whenever they do some late night showings i can usually make them at the cost of sleep but movies usually have the magic of making you forget if only for a few hours that you arent in the situation or place you are and just lets you get lost in a film. I saw I am Legend there a while back and enjoyed it alot but thats just for the whole pulling off the solitary character and not being boring aspect. also saw will smith in Hancock last week and really like the movie and premise but was pissed at hell at whoever did the cinematography. Just cause you shake the camera like a geriatric old guy and zoom in on faces then do immidiate wize shots doesnt make it fuckin artsy. It was close to makeing the movie unwatchable. I had the same complaint about Cloverfield. also went twice to see Wall-E (once cause i thought something else was playing and didnt want to walk all the way home lol). This was the most unique and most imaginative Pixar flick yet. I cant wait to buy this movie when it comes out on DVD as it was just great all around. I was entranced by every aspect of that movie so that when it was over i almost forgot i was in Iraq still.
well like i said rarely post but as i also always say that im gonna work on that problem lol we will see i guess...
