If anyone has any suggestions or something you want me to talk about send me an email.  I have the tendency to be opinionated so I won't let you down.  I will even use your name, yes you will be immortalized on the Internet for everyone to see.  I was thinking about it and I have a decent amount of ideas but as I move forward I might need a little help.


Also if there is anything you all want to see added to the site to make navigating easier please let me know.  I am always looking for new widgets to add to increase the entertainment for my readers.  I was concerned I would be embarrassed by putting my thoughts out there for the world to see but I have received nothing but support so anything I can do for you let me know.  The "Contact" page is only a click away.

Here is a picture of my parents dog, Reese.  Haven't made any posts about him but it is only a matter of time.  Best dog in the world.

Still Hard To Believe...

Ok, so I can't help but write about this one.  It is the only thing on the tip of everyone's tongue for the past couple days.  This guy in Colorado is a special kind of crazy.  I was talking about it with my parents when I was back in Jersey this weekend and my dad made a good point to me.  Calling this guy crazy is so easy, because... well, I guess I just don't know what else to call him.  However, calling him crazy is giving him an out.  By saying he did all this because he is crazy is making it too easy for him to push the blame off of himself.  I just can't get it through my head how someone could do this though.  I guess I kind of understand how he thought he was being clever though.  If this guy was delusional, as he obviously was, and coloring his hair and calling himself "The Joker" it just seems like something he would do... in a movie.  ABC News put out a video of him a few years ago at a science fair talking in front of a crowd.  I could look back and see what it actually was about but I am pretty sure I got the gist of it.  He was talking about "illusions" in one form or another, so this just seems like he has always been a little out there.  Someone at work today brought up something else also.  In the second movie, the Jokers hair was green... and he looked like a bad ass. This guy just had bright orange hair and looked like a moron.  Have a little respect for yourself.

Over the past couple days there have been so many articles out about these victims.  It is really sad to read them all.  The people seemed to be good, average people.  Maybe a little too into Batman to go see that thing at midnight, but I am sure it is a really good movie and got great reviews.  To hear about the amount of bravery out there is actually kind of heart warming.  And this is coming from me.  There was one guy who dove in front of his girlfriend and her brother to protect them and ended up getting shot and killed.  I guess it is just good to see that there are actually people out there that are willing to do whatever they can for someone else.  Apparently, there were a couple similar stories also and that just takes an amazing person.  There was also the guy that went out to see the movie for his birthday and sent out a tweet an hour before it happened and said how excited he was to ring in this current birthday and first wedding anniversary.  I can't imagine what it would be like to be someone in this persons life that saw such a potentially happy day turn into what it did.  There was one story, though, that stood out from them all to me.  The mother of the 6 year old girl who was killed was also critically injured.  The whole time she was in the hospital bed, the was asking about her daughter... over and over again.  They couldn't tell her what had happened though because she was in such bad condition.  I guess they might have thought she would have given up all fight to live if she heard her daughter was killed.  I don't even have kids and hearing about that put a lump in my throat.  There is nothing this kid or his family can say that can ever make up for this.  Nothing can explain it.

Some of the victims families came out and said they didn't blame the kids family and have to move forward and not lose faith.  If anything can destroy your faith, it is this.  If there is someone out there looking out for us how could they let something like this happen?  The fact is, it did.  Whether it comes down to this kids upbringing or whatever, it will always be hard to believe.  Even if some of these people in the audience had guns and tried to stop this guy, it would have been futile.  He was dressed head to toe in body armor.  He was more than prepared to have a huge firefight.  Throwing those smoke bombs wasn't even needed, it just made him out to be more of a coward.  This guy was picking off people as they were running out the exits.  Straight up shooting them in the back.  The way he booby trapped his apartment didn't even surprise me at that point.  He must have just watched Speed or something.  If you don't remember that, watch it again... good movie.  The disgusting part was that he left his music blaring also, so if anyone in the building complained to the super, it would have killed the first person to walk in the apartment.  They apparently were able to neutralize most of the traps and were able to take a computer and hard drive out of there.  It just seems like there are so many people out there to blame for this.  The companies selling the ammo online, the stores selling him the guns, his parents for not realizing their child had a problem... and of course, the man himself.  I sent a tweet out about this but I really hope they don't give him the death penalty and sentence him to life without parole.  Then they can put a live action camera in his jail cell and we can all tune in and watch his get his ass beat.  And I mean beat in a number of ways... use your imagination.  But hey, maybe it's just me.
