A little late to the party.


Scott took me to see Team America last night. I know that the majority of people out there have already seen it, but as usual, we are a little late to the party. I'm not sure what my favourite thing was about this movie - likely the Kim Jung Il character and the constant use of profanity by marrionettes. I will rent the dvd when it comes out to see the uncut version of the marrionette sex scene and the behind the scenes details on how they actually managed to pull this off.

On a slightly different topic, the movie reminded me (not that I'd forgotten) about how deeply sad I am that Bush got "re-elected" President. It gets easier and easier to see why the rest of the world dislikes the US so intensely. I try to remind myself that about 50% of Americans didn't vote for Bush, but that just makes me sorry for them. I try to remember that there are Americans like David Cross and Michael Moore who speak out against their current regime and that gives me hope. But it is still incredibly frustrating to think that even with the last 4 years as an example of what's to come, that this bumbling ass-hat still managed to get voted "back in" to office. My mom was born in the US, but has lived in Canada for over 30 years. I asked her how she felt about the election results and she said "Well, the Nixon years were pretty dark. So were the Raegan years. I expect that the Bush years will prove just as dark". Sigh. Time to go buy one of those ultra-violet lights to keep the sun shining until 2008!

  2. Yes, but they didn't appear to learn anything? I guess people have short memories...
