This morning I woke up and looked at my stats, not in that order, and my views was extremely lower than normal. I’d like to say that I don’t care, but I think that every single person with a blog cares about who and how many people are reading it. But I know the reason people haven’t been reading my blog the last couple of days is because I haven’t really been posting. Why? I just don’t have much to say. Which is ironic because my sister just made mention to the fact that I’m obsessed with writing on my blog. Is writing on a blog an obsession? I’m not sure. But I think more of a hobby? I don’t know.
ANYWAYS! I woke up this morning thinking that I really didn’t have anything to talk about, yet here I am writing my third post of the day, and yet I feel like I have another post in me. So I might be pushing 4 posts when I woke up thinking that I wouldn’t post at all. I find it interesting that just sitting on the couch all day, I still find things to talk about.
ANYWAYS! Due to my laziness today I was watching movie after movie while on my computer. That’s just how it works. So I ran out of movies and I found the 1971 edition of The Murders in the Rue Morgue. I think that’s a form of desperation, but it has Val Kilmer in it. Well first off, the movie is PG-13. But I wouldn’t even think twice about having my 9-year-old sister come in and watch it with me. We have advanced sooo much in film and pretty much everything else in the last 40 years.
But not only that, the movie is set in the 1800s obviously, but while the lady is being killed she starts screaming her head off and all of her neighbours come outside to see what’s going on. Well I hear my neighbours screaming all the time, I never go outside to check what’s up, because it’s usually either a domestic dispute or domestic loving. Now maybe she was screaming in a different way, cause I really wasn’t paying THAT much attention to the movie. But after a policeman arrives to check out why she is screaming, him and ALL the neighbours go inside to investigate. Really? You brought a bunch of citizens in to investigate a possible murder scene? Not only that, they see a bunch of blood all over this room and the policeman tells all the citizen to split up and look around and don’t touch anything.
REALLY?! They are not your police back-up. Now obviously there probably wasn’t a lot of murders in the 1800s, there were some obviously, but not nearly as many and gruesome as the ones we have now, but I’m pretty sure it’s bad form to have a bunch of citizens do your police work for you. As a citizen, I would probably throw up and ruin the entire of crime scene. All there would be is my dinner. No evidence.
But luckily the neighbours held their dinners very well and they didn’t even act too upset when they saw a decapitated head. No BD.
I wikipedia’d it and it said that the movie didn’t follow the book at all, just had the same name. I haven’t read the book either. My dad came in and turned it off. We are now watching Fair Game. I don’t know if it’s any good yet, but any movie that starts with the Gorillaz has to be.Follow @corzgalore
