So I knew sooner or later that I would start getting questions about the whole title and set up of this blog, and why I use the name “MidnightWolf”, so let me explain. It isn’t me trying to hide or being afraid of something. I try not to make this blog completely about myself. I don’t want my face to be remembered as I want my words and posts to be remembered, I prefer substance over imagery. I also like the sleek and kinda mysterious feel of the blog, I think it suits me a little bit. Someday I’ll probably upload a photo of myself, but for now there’s no point, why change something that seems to be going so well, and is augmenting each and every day.
The main reason why I started blogging was to have an outlet, to post about what I feel and what my opinions on certain things are, so let met get back on track. The Plymouth RMV is the worst fucking piece of shit I’ve ever had to go to. I recently went to go get my ID there and I waited and hour on the first day, but my Mom was already at Longhorn and we had to leave, so the next day I waited 2 hours to get called in. I had my birth certificated, social security card, and the $25 payment, and I also had an large envelope with a packet of information from UMass Boston. I get in there and they say they can’t accept the envelope, and I would have to go back home to get an envelope of a bill or a letter. Well I looked for half an hour just to find one because I never get any mail, and guess what, I never found one. I had to drive all the way to the bank and had them print out something that proves that I live where I do, which they didn’t even tell me was an option, and I had to look online to find out. I tried calling them but a machine answered, and I couldn’t even talk to anybody to fucking find out what would else would be acceptable that I could bring in other than that envelope (Because obviously I could’ve given UMass Boston a fake address to send stuff to). My Dad was also pissed saying that ‘It shouldn’t take this long to get a fucking photo ID’ and how ‘No wonder why everyone is moving out of this shitty state’. I have convinced myself that I’m never going there again. I remember being so angry that I thought about planting a bomb and destroying the building (While nobody was there of course), but rationality prevailed and I just put that bad experience right behind me.
Everyone complains about Mondays. It’s the start of a long work/school week, and the end of the weekend, and almost everyone enjoys the weekend. Personally, I dislike Tuesdays as much if not more than Mondays. Sure it’s a day closer to the end of the week, but there’s still awhile to go. At least on Mondays you’re rested up (unless you’ve partied all weekend), and sometimes its good getting back to work/school after being off for a few nights, it can be refreshing sometimes.
It’s a lot different after a long vacation though, I usually dread coming back after a week long vacation. I usually develop somewhat of a routine during vacations and I hate coming back, it isn’t refreshing like coming back after a short weekend.
All I’m saying is, I don’t think Monday deserves as much hate as it gets, sometimes it does, but most of the times Monday can actually be a good day.
What do True Grit, Oceans Eleven, Halloween, and Dawn of the Dead all have in common? Yes they are all popular movies, but they have also been remade into modern day movies. My friend who is a big movie buff often scoffs at classic movies that are made into what he calls “horrible attempts of recreation.” He says that the originals have some subtleties that can’t be remade nowadays. Now I do agree with that part in ways, but I also think that remakes boast better graphics, and sometimes better acting, or at least acting favored by people like me.
There are some movies I say that shouldn’t and couldn’t be remade (and turn out good). Movies like ‘The Breakfast Club”, “Dazed and Confused”, and “A Christmas Story” just have to many elements from the years of the past and I don’t think it would translate well into modern day films. These are just a few exceptions to the list.
I am actually a fan of the classic slasher remakes, probably because I wasn’t around to see the originals. My favorite horror remake is definitely “Friday the 13th.” That movie just had me interested all through the film, and in tune with what was happening.
Well, that was just a quick post that I decided to do about remakes. I don’t think they deserve as much criticism as they get, but then again most people criticizing were around to see the originals.
