Black Friday 2013

0

Hey creeps & ghouls. 

I have a seasonal position at a department store and I had to work black friday. Needless to say, I am appalled at how society is…. 

How people fought each other over items that are there all the time… and to be honest, the deals aren’t really deals at all. Why do people go through this shit? Why don’t they just say look dude, those retail workers need to be at home during the Holidays! Lets NOT shop! No! they don’t. They don’t give a shit. They would rather fight over a can of frickin peanuts….

 

People disgust me.

Yellow Brick Road (2010) Review

0

Hello Devils & Ghouls!

Today we will take a look at the film Yellow Brick Road that came out in 2010. I don’t normally do recent movies, but this one really left me with a lot to say. When browsing upon Hulu with my love, we stumbled upon this film due to it’s interesting description, we thought it would be a good film to watch. Here is the description/storyline from IDMB:

One Morning in New England, 1940, the entire population of Friar New Hampshire – 572 people – walked together up a winding mountain trail and into the wilderness. They left behind their clothes, their money, all of their essentials. Even their dogs were abandoned, tied to posts and left to starve. No One knows why. A search party dispatched by the U.S. Army eventually discovered the remains of nearly 300 of Friar’s evacuees. Many had frozen to death. Others were cruelly and mysteriously slaughtered. The bodies of the remaining citizens are still unaccounted for. Over the years, a quiet cover-up operation managed to weave the story of Friar into the stuff of legends and backwoods fairy tales. The town has slowly repopulated, but the vast wilderness is mostly untracked, with the northern-most stretches off limits to local hunters and loggers. In 2008, the coordinates for the “YELLOWBRICKROAD” trail head were declassified. The first official expedition into a dark and twisted wilderness (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1398428/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1)

 

As you can see, from the description of the film it seems like a great story line filled with wonder and adventure! I hate to say this, but the small description is the most exciting of the film. In my opinion, the whole thing was rushed. It starts off by showing old photos of the mishap in the 1940s, and a man with his wife are writing a book about the amazing mystery of the Yellow Brick Road. They get a team to go up the trail in search of any clues that may help them write their book. Right away though, everything is moving so fast it’s hard to follow. They don’t really go deep into the history of why these people are going in the expedition. All you think is, okay this guy is just going for a hike. The lack of detail made the film quite annoying. After you get the gist of what is going on, you follow the people on the trail. Slowly one by one they start going insane, especially after finding an old hat. You get interested in where they are going because you want to know whats at the end of the trail.

The movie has this big build up to a sucky ending that just leaves you confused. I really don’t get why it ended like that, maybe they didn’t really think out their storyline or there were some issues I don’t know but it is the worst ending after all the craziness and build up in the world! There really is never an explanation as to why they all went bonkers on the trail — My guess is because they ended up like the people from the 1940s — but on the other hand, there were some survivors that was gathered by a few interviews they did with people so I really don’t know.

 

If you are bored and just need something on in the background, I recommend this film. I don’t recommend it if you actually want to sit and watch something.

-900/10

A lay unconscious on the ground.

The ones above me all frown.

Shoulda been better.

Shoulda been like me.

Maybe then you’d make history.

 

My brain matter devoured by parasites.

I wish I could just see the light.

Torture and betrayal.

Have become the norm.

It’s all I’ve ever known.

 

Compassion is a lost art.

Down with the ship.

Stuck on the ocean floors.

Fish consume my flesh.

There’s nothing left.

 

 

My brain matter devoured by parasites.

I wish I could just see the light.

Torture and betrayal.

Have become the norm.

It’s all I’ve ever known.

 

Taken for granted.

Working for no pay.

Dreams put on delay.

What a life I live.

 

 

My brain matter devoured by parasites.

I wish I could just see the light.

Torture and betrayal.

Have become the norm.

It’s all I’ve ever known.

 

My existence has been widdled down,

to a small, fragile being I’ve never been.

Where the hell is the hero within?

 

Lost myself, I’ve drifted away.

To join in your game you play.

Manipulation causes destruction.

Mental failure. War on my mental nation.

 

I once stood tall. Without any doubt.

You took my true character and spit it out.

How much longer can I live life this way? 

How much longer can I fight to stay?

 

 

My brain matter devoured by parasites.

I wish I could just see the light.

Torture and betrayal.

Have become the norm.

It’s all I’ve ever known.
