Sliding through a turn on the way to work this morning, curtesy of the latest winter storm to grace New England, I couldn't help but think of a trip to Canada that I've been wanting to take for some time now.
Odd isn't it? The fact that around me is a varitable winter wonderland and yet my mind was wandering to the Great White North. Remarkable if you ask me. Even slightly comical. Despite our surroundings we often dream of other places. We've all heard the saying 'the grass is greener until you get there', and still we dream of the other side of the fence. The truly funny part about this? The people at the place we're dreaming of are probably dreaming of where we are.
There is always love for home, but eventually home becomes the norm. And after being a piece in the normalcy puzzle, we want to break out, discover what else is out there - hell, let's all get loss.
In the true spirit of ADHD let's jump topics to that of horror. Quite an appropriate topic for Valentine's Day wouldn't you say? Side note, if you're into slasher flicks check out 'My Bloody Valentine 3-D'. (Trust me, you could do worse.)
Anyways, why has the horror industry been lacking lately? I don't mean lacking in quantity (Jesus Christ would they kill the Paranormal Activity series yet??) I mean quality. 'The Strangers' came out in 2008 and six years is far too long for a decent damn horror flick to come out. 'Evil Dead' was a huge disappointment (more accurately a huge tumor) and the only reason 'Paranormal Activity' is still going is because it costs next-to-nothing to make and still draws a crowd. Albeit why the crowd is drawn is beyond me.
Regardless, here's to twenty five years of experiencing and here's to at least fifty more. Cheers everyone, keep watching, reading, and gaming like you all should be.
