That's No Moon, That's Your Mother!!!

I stole that headline from Star Wars Robot Chicken, it was more relevant on Sunday when I watched both of those of things, but I like the title so I kept it despite it's basic irrelevance for today. It has been ridiculously cold here in the Midwest, so much it has been making national headlines, which I could truly do without. Oh well. I finished season 6 of Dexter last night.Wow! Such a fantastic season, and just like season 4, it ended with a cliffhanger, although I do have to say that no other season has ever ended like this before, and from the looks of season 7, things are going to get very dicey for the main character. Do not watch the trailer if you plan on watching the series at all otherwise it will spoil it for you. Michael C. Hall is a fantastic actor, and he is actually has a Master of Fine Arts in Acting I believe; so he actually knows what he is doing. So I've been writing lately, although yesterday was not a peachy day but life goes on, I poured all of that crap into my writing and came up with some pretty good stuff. I'm writing this one fantastical story for a friend about rabbits and unicorns and so far the basis of it is actually quite good. My political drama continues to go well despite how long it is taking me to complete it, but it is getting rather long too, so I'm not quite certain where I'm going to end the story as of yet. As I write and things come to a close organically is when I guess I'll end it; hopefully it doesn't take over a hundred pages to get there. Job hunting sucks, especially when you live in an area that doesn't quite fit your skill set per se. Hopefully though I will find something that resembles something to do with my degree, although I'm not very bright on the certainty of that. Anyways. Tonight we watched this film called The Losers which about these U.S. special forces military guys that get double crossed and are now trying to get revenge on the guy who set them up. Apparently it's based off of a Vertigo comics book series. I'm giving it an "Admirable Ability" rating as it was entertaining, but very little else. Zoe Saldana was in it and did quite well, and I was also quite impressed with Chris Evan's role too. Idris Elba and Jeffery Dean Morgan were also in the film and did quite well, but nothing overly impressive; I guess they're just a nice addition to have in every film. Well here's to progress for tomorrow. Oh and I just read an article in The Wall Street Journal where in stated that in Syria over 60,000 people have died as of yet and there's no sign that the civil war is going to stop, and that the Syrian people, or rather the rebels are slowly beginning to become anti-American since the U.S. government is taking a backseat to the suffering going on in that country. Such a shame. I really hope those people get the freedom they deserve soon, and that the fighting is over quickly as well.
