The shooting in Aurora Colorado. This hit WAY too close to home for me, as I live in Colorado myself. I knew that none of my family was in danger but you can never really get rid of that nagging feeling. My cousin and I where hanging out that night and we both bitched about how we couldn't go see Batman. Then I got the news and my irrational side kicked in "It could have been us!" Well no, dumb ass, it couldn't. I am by no means close to Aurora save for being in the same state. But I still found myself biting my nails and trying to gather news about what happend. It is truly an awful thing that happend but I am going to be a bit of a prick on this part: Don't let this affect you wanting to see movies please. I saw people swearing up and down that they would no longer go to movie theaters and I had to bite my fist from literally shouting BS. And now I am trying to find a way to share my opinion and still be tactful and not seem like a raving idiot. We can't let bad things stop the good things. If you love movies or sports or whatever we have to keep that love! It's what makes life at least a little better. We can't let one man ruin it for all of us. And I sure as hell wont. Next month, if I have the means to do as such, I am going to take my little cousin and my brother to go see The Dark Knight Rises. I would like to say that I'm being defiant, but that isn't even it. I love movies. I love video games. I love music. I would have gone regardless. And regardless I will go.
Sorry for this depressing post. I had to get that off my chest and I still don't feel the burden lifted. I am just not agreeing with the direction humanity is going in and I am not articulate enough to put it all in words. At least right now.
I loved hearing all your music! It's so nice to hear what others listen too!
DFTBA and best wishes,
