Anthems Aren’t Sacred

merica1

I really don’t care about football. I really don’t care about the Superbowls or endorsement ads or deflated gates, I don’t care. Now if you took my lack of caring for that and quantified it exponentially, then you have how much I care about mainstream media’s opinion on things. Honestly, before the last few days I had never heard of Colin Kaepernick. I’m sure he is a fine athlete and worked hard to get his job, but I was as aware of him as he is of me. This is neither an indictment nor an endorsement of him remaining seated during the national anthem. He is exercising his free speech whilst those who are outraged and offended are exercising theirs. It’s America through and through, instant controversy over a meaningless game followed by reanalysis.

This latest fiasco is just one many where someone does the unexpected during a national anthem. Even the laziest Google search will corroborate that fact. People have been getting offended during America’s special song for so long. Somehow I doubt that Francis Scott Key wrote this song knowing the ire that would be raised by non participants or etiquette breakers. Beyond that, I highly doubt that he intended it be sung before every team sports event across the land. Does the audience there, eager to be entertained gain anything from it? Do we feel more patriotic afterwards? Does anyone really care? I think not, so I say we stop using it.

The national anthem at events is just one more piece of pomp and circumstance not necessary for anyone’s enjoyment of an event. The patrons are just there to have fun. Realistically it’s use is pretty inconsistent. It is used before every tee ball and pee wee soccer game but not before a sold out concert. It is sung with gusto during a parade, but not before a car auction. So why use it at all? If it is going to be a lighting rod for controversy, why not reserve it for political events and the like. Wheel out the anthem for big ceremonial events and not every trite, third tier semi pro ball game. Everyone just cooperates out of programming and routine. We put our hands over our hearts like our elementary teacher taught us to. It is just a red, white and blue lullaby for most people ready to see what they bought their tickets for.

I’m sure the ‘freedom isn’t free’ crowd will object to this. They believe that flag ought be worshipped and the scriptures of the anthem sung. Fine, exercise your fundamental human rights. Embrace your ruler. I just don’t think it matters at all. Patriotism isn’t mitigated by participation in a song. Stop using the anthem as a tool to provoke ostracism to those with different opinions. Stop forcing political agendas into our light-hearted entertainment. Stop assuming you know the founding father’s opinions on events this trivial. Just stop. Why don’t we just let the people get their popcorn and  and stop delaying the game. Why don’t we just accept that it wastes time and drags out the entire event? No one came to hear the national anthem. Let’s keep some perspective, it’s still just a guy sitting during a song.

Whiskey With Kerouac

irresponsible

 

I got shitfaced with Jack Kerouac last night. Home alone and with no real desire to accomplish anything, I drank neat rye whiskeys and read Scattered Poems. For those unfamiliar, Scattered Poems is a collection of vulgar and visceral poetry from the author’s travels across America. It is excellent in every meaning of that word, but I’m not really here to discuss that. I am here to encourage you to remember to live life in your way. I want you to stop and enjoy the whole experience. To remember to be more than just be acquainted with what sings to the muse within you. To taste the entire encounter complete with inspiration, love, joy and rage.

Sometimes, you have to spurn responsibilities and follow your own agenda. Sometimes you have to do the impractical thing that feels right in that moment. Sometimes, you should make that last cocktail when you’re already on the edge of drunk. Sometimes you should eat that last piece of cake. Sometimes you should make conversation with a complete stranger. Sometimes you should walk barefoot in the grass and look at the stars. Sometimes, you should make some decisions in the now and enjoy life for the luscious mystery that lies within.

 

Reality will always be right there waiting for you when you return from your chosen sabbatical. It vigilantly stalks you eager to present you with a new list of demands. Ii will meet with higher tolls and more stringent responsibilities. It will take your spirit and rob your very essence if you allow it. It is imperative that we realize that we are so much more than our agendas and professions allow us to be. We are a vast conglomerations of hope, dream and desires. It is vital to the human condition that we feel and question and contemplate. It is vital that we do not lose touch with the impulses of our imagination. We must continue to wonder, or truly all is lost.

 

 

I encourage all of my illustrious readers to enjoy some of Mr. Kerouac’s fine writing here.

My Problems With Net Neutrality

internet

 

 

Congratulations, we all fell for it.  With websites from here, there and all over pleading for us to support Net Neutrality. Politicians and news anchors clamored that this is a much needed regulation. Well it’s official as of June 16th, the FCC Net Neutrality agreement was upheld in Federal Appeals Court. We all win, the Internet is no longer a luxury, it is now regulated as a utility. We can binge watch YouTube and Hulu without interrupted streams.

Net Neutrality was upheld as part of Title II of the Federal Communications Act of 1934. This act was originally designed around phone lines that transports only one type of data. Since the Internet moves so many types of data, to restrict everything on the same plateau eliminates the quality of service currently used. Restricting internet service providers in this way eliminates their ability to offer multiple speeds for their customers and removes the opportunity for them to prioritize the available assets as needed. This will force smaller service providers to new standards they may not be able to handle and regulates ISPs business models in a way that will make it harder to serve their customers.

The implications of how Net Neutrality will impact Internet users is important. These includes the Internet being subject to regulation by the Federal Communications Commission. The truest form of deregulated media may be a thing of the past. Independent content creators could potentially be fined or subject to the current regulations of terrestrial broadcasts.  Another implication of Net Neutrality is having service providers submit how their data is being dispersed and that it is being done according to this agreement. While I know that the Congressional push back has been against the violation of privacy, I am more worried about the cost involved. The expansion of administration or the creation of some agency to ensure that the dictums are met . Regardless, we will all pay for this. An additional concern is that Title II allows regulated utilities to be put under Eminent Domain.

Net Neutrality is unnecessary and overreaching. It chokes the free market and will only cost more money to everyone involved. From businesses to Internet users to taxpayers. Through the use of misleading language, this act will be harmful long term. I oppose this entire thing and I hope that it will be appealed in the Supreme Court. Ideally, this is something that will go away, but my gut feeling is it will haunt Americans the way the Patriot Act has.

Quick, Everyone Chime In!

opinion3

 

 

The tragic part of a tragedy is the victims seem to take second place. Nobody really gives a fuck about those affected. Sure, we all feign solidarity, we all wish well, political figures stand in front of podiums and make claims and legislation. Leaders of communities demand action for whatever has happened all the while those who really suffer seem to get lost in the shuffle.

The incident in Orlando has saturated conversations, social media, and all forms of news. Things like this just magnify everyone’s agenda. These things just make people do more of whatever they do. Whatever sacred cow those people or agencies possess, they just do more of that. Anti groups do more of that, disenfranchised groups push to be more accepted, all members of a certain faith are expected to answer for the actions of one individual and any number of other assemblage condemn or begin to fight for their own agenda. Not to mention the multitude of radical fringe organization that will condone the architects of the tragedy.

I can’t claim perfection, I have dabbled in hindsight just as much as everyone else. I have piggy backed on travesties for the sake of proving a point. If only this or if only that, the situation could have been different. I’ve encouraged people to read these statistics and facts that reflect my opinions and beliefs.

During this cavalcade of lobbying and motive pushing people still are suffering. Families, friends and those directly impacted are experiencing unfathomable loss. They are not comforted or allowed to grieve in peace. Their own personal hell is analyzed into a million of “what if?” scenarios. When lives are taken, we owe it to one another to find a solution to the problem. Not the kind of solution that pushes legislation, reinterprets laws and ultimately limits freedoms.

The focus during some type of disaster should be far more introspective. We need a renaissance that allows us to mourn the dead and comfort their families simply because it is the right thing to do. To objectively look at the situation and find a way to teach the next generation that hate only causes problems, it never solves them. We need to foster an environment where differences are tolerated and critical thinking is promoted. More than anything, we need to stop making reactionary judgments and instead just try to be better people.

Bored Shenanigans Podcast – Episode 93

Not only is this a Vault Shenanigans originally recorded in December of 2014 but Cody is the one the edited it. So you would think that he would be the one to do the episode description. But no it is me and I have not yet had a chance to hear it so I will make wild speculations about what happens in it.

Cody will get stuck on a sentence and it will make negative amounts of sense. We will find common ground between two apposing points. A recent headline makes us angry. The words “potted plants” will be used more than we ever imagined. We will find a striking similarity between a political leader and a glass of iced tea. A primordial evil will be called forth from outer darkness to claim the blood of the living by remnants of a once great forgotten ancient kingdom and we will have to be recalled to an orbital platform to protect mankind from that which it knows not.

Failed Potential Movie Sequels Part 2

Failed Potential Movie Sequels Returns

We return with a vengeance to bring you the beginning of the list. Without further hullabaloo, here is number 15 to number 1 of our Rank This! movie sequel list.

15-Addams Family Values

This sequel fell so flat. Pancake level flat. Anjelica Houston and Raul Julia reprise their roles as Morticia and Gomez, but this film’s unrelenting desire to make Uncle Fester a comedy relief character runs this film aground.

 14-Fantastic Four: Rise of The Silver Surfer

Well this was the chance for redemption after that abortion of a first film. Sweet hell, this was not it. Blundering their way through the introduction of Silver Surfer and making Galactus a big, glowy cloud really made me regret seeing this movie. 

13-Tremors Sequels(All of them)

Sweet fuck, just stop. The first film was more fun than any movie about giant worms has any right to be. It was sort of call back to the creature feature genre and had a cast of characters you rooted for. Then they just kept making terrible, ponderous films about tunneling worms of death.

12-Mission Impossible 2

The first Mission Impossible was a complex spy film that made the audience think and wonder what Ethan Hunt’s next move would be. The sequel was directed by John Woo and has explosions, motorcycle races, giant explosions, and doves gracefully flying amid gun battles. Not what I had hoped for by any stretch of the imagination. A dumb action film that should have been a tight spy thriller. 

11-2010: The Year We Made Contact

Stanley Kubrick set the bar pretty high. I don’t know that this film ever had a real chance of touching that one. But the director tries so hard to do Kubrickian things and it doesn’t resonate. This is apparent in the ending most of all, which ends simply and leaves the audience craving more, especially after how the first film looked into the mystery of space. 

10-Shrek 2

Shrek turns into a human and donkey turns into a horse. He wants to win back Fiona and wacky antics ensue…..Next!

9-Aladdin 2: Return of Jafar

220px-Returnofjafar

Maybe this is nostalgia leaking in here. I used to really like Aladdin. It was one of my favorite Disney pictures, having more adventure than most of its peers. The sequel was bad. Really bad, rehashing  a lackluster villain in a lackluster revenge plot. Oh and Robin Williams doesn’t play the Genie and it is  painfully obvious. 

8-Pirates of Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest

The first film was so perfect. It set us all up for a franchise of  staggering escapades and did so much to make us like Jack Sparrow. Then this happened and it snowballed into a half-ass’d snooze fest that seemed unable to grasp any of the mystique of the predecessor. 

7-Batman Returns

Why do people like this movie? Other than a top-notch Catwoman, what is good here? I understand the impact and revolution in the first flick, but this was horrendous. Tim Burton created so much atmosphere and scenery, the cast couldn’t help but chew it. Without Christopher Nolan’s trilogy, people would assume that this tripe is Batman.

6-Caddyshack 2

195px-Caddyshack_ii

What is there to say? You take a legendary comedy film’s sequel and insult the audience with it. This film could easily be under a dictionary heading under terrorism.

5-Butterfly Effect 2

190px-Butterflyeffect2dvd

I don’t think the writer of this had ever seen the original. It is Butterfly Effect in name only. The first one was so good, this one was poorly made, poorly acted, and I was dumb enough to take the bait and watch it. I want my time back.

4-Matrix Revolutions

Okay, Reloaded had problems. It did, but this is where the string was pulled and the series unraveled completely apart. Constantly trying to mind fuck us for no real reason, this film plodded along and ended with a standard fare Zion standoff and an unearned ‘what if ‘ending. I wish I had taken the blue pill instead.

3-The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor

220px-The_Mummy_-_Tomb_of_the_Dragon_Emperor (1)

Here it is, this is why I did this list. The first Mummy wasn’t Citizen Kane or anything. It had its problems, but it was fun. It was a loving tribute to The Mummy’s Tomb and Curse of the Mummy’s Hand. It was a great return to a much forgotten monster. I really enjoyed it and do so more upon repeated viewings. The Mummy Returns was not good and neither was the Scorpion King. This should have been awesome, taking the series to a new land and culture with the Terracotta Army and Chinese Emperor’s undead. This could have at least been a diet version of Indiana Jones. They screwed this up so bad and made it just another forgettable action flick and wasting so much potential.

2-Star Wars: Attack of the Clones

Star_Wars_-_Episode_II_Attack_of_the_Clones_(movie_poster)

This is the worst of the prequels and I will not be swayed otherwise. Even with boring podraces and Jar Jar, Phantom Menace was still watchable. Darth Maul was cool, the space battles were fun and the plot tried for something. In this film, Christopher Lee is wasted as a mediocre villain and we watch poorly written romantic dialogue. Apparently Boba Fett is a clone and so are all storm troopers. This cannot be the Clone Wars that Ben Kenobi talked about all those years ago on Tattoine. 

1-Boondock Saints 2: All Saints Day

220px-Boondock_2_poster

I wanted to love this movie and quote it as much as I do the first film. In the BS production house and amongst our friends this is one of our films. We were so ready for this movie to come out. It isn’t bad. It just isn’t the first film. It tries so hard to recapture that lightning, but never seems to. Rocco’s cameo was a nice touch and having Willam Defoe return as Lt. Smeker was great, but I still feel a bit empty. I loved the Focus on Il Duce, but something wasn’t quite there. This series still gets an annual play through on St. Patty’s Day, but All Saints Day just isn’t the saint the first one was.

Overrated Fictional Characters

We have all been there, sitting around listening to someone prattle on and on about what a great character someone was. Barraged by the popular conception and fandom, we find ourselves hearing just a bit too much about the following characters. Without further ado, Bored Shenanigans’ Rank This! presents

The Top 11 Most Overrated Fictional Characters

11- Cinderella.

cinderlla

 YAWN. What a boring character with an over referenced story. The story is supposed to give us all a warm fuzzy and believe that one day wonder and beauty will rain upon us and free us from all our hardships. The original story had some dark elements and is more enjoyable, yet it has been so convoluted and watered down by Disney, it is almost unrecognizable. I never saw what the big deal was here. 

10- Legolas.

legolas

I feel clarification is needed here. In Tolkien’s books, Legolas is a member of the original nine who were to protect the ring. He was an introduction to the world of elves and had a few cool action scenes. He was just a fun background character who served his purpose well. Enter Peter Jackson. I guess, a defined cool character was needed. Someone to make the tween boys yell and the tween girls swoon. Dispensing arrows at a feverish pace, Legolas surfs down stairs on shields, kills large amounts of Orcs and tempts death many, many times. Expanded unnecessarily for the film, at least he gives cosplayers another choice in costuming.

9- Wolf Man. 

wolfman

Though he is considered a cornerstone of the vintage horror genre, he is the weakest.  All props go to Lon Chaney Jr. for an admirable performance, but he holds little sway. He doesn’t have the vexing nature of Dracula, the sympathy of Frankenstein’s monster, the tragedy of The Phantom of the Opera, or even the mystery of the Gill-man. I respect the ingenuity of the make up and effects, but this film is a bit ponderous and the writing of the character never draws us in. Not too bad, just out gunned by others in the category. The most disappointing thing is they had a second chance with the 2010 film, but it did little to add to the universe.

8- Ryu & Ken. 

ken ryu

This is a tie for two characters who are essentially the same. Pallet swapped from the beginning these two have become the face of the Street Fighter franchise. With a field of such diverse and fascinating characters, these were the two that were picked? Give me Vega, Chun Li, Bison, Axel or Akuma any day.

7-Harry Potter.

harry potter

Too bad there isn’t a magic spell to make you be less of a whiny little bitch. Harry Potter constantly takes on tasks bigger than he can handle and then puts himself or others in peril. A dramatic pre-madonna he takes the role of lone savior much too far and must be bailed out by his much more interesting and well drawn out supporting characters. Gifted with a well written universe and a well thought out set of villains, Mr. Potter falls flat in books and films that bear his namesake.

6- Hamlet.

hamlet

To list or not to list. To deny popular conception of what is iconic stories and throw them by the way side. To withstand the flaming arrows or to take up arms against the status quo of popular opinion…. With all the iconic and well done characters created by William Shakespeare, how has Hamlet become the icon? A man of inaction and debate he ponders and over thinks his next move. I feel Oedipus did it better and was far more intriguing with far more baggage. I understand that history is on Hamlet’s side, but it is no Twelfth Night or The Tempest. 

5- Luke Skywalker.

skywalker

I understand why Luke Skywalker exists. He is the innocent soul that can be related to by the audience. He introduces us to the fantastical world around him, I understand his point. But he is such a lost little sheep through the first two films. Sure he has moments of excellence, like destroying the Death Star and knocking down Imperial AT-ATs, but until his transformation in Return of the Jedi, this character is an uninteresting one. Out classed by far more interesting characters like Han Solo, Princess Leia, Obi-Wan, Chewy, the droids and Lando. Truly a so-so character amid a cavalcade of new and exciting relationships.

 

4-Data.

data

Spock as a robot. That is all Data is. Sure he was learning about how to be more human, but sweet Omicron Theta! does this character get on my nerves some times. From stupid laughter to singing folk songs, he can really wear on the viewer. As the series progressed, he became more enlightening and showed the audience what it took to be human. I just never understood his appeal to the Trek Nation. 

3- Wolverine.

wolverine

This was a character that never grew with the fans. Okay, he is an invincible bad ass with a foul temper and some sweet claws. Who was experimented on by the government. But was originally from Japan. And may have fought in the Civil War. Logan has been the focus of so many comics and films, we lose track. He was a cool character when we were 12, but now he is yawn worthy with his same antics. He is so deeply associated with the X-Men and the Marvel universe, he has almost become their unofficial mascot. Over exposure that overshadows other notable characters earns Weapon X his place on this list.

2- Jay Gatsby.

Gatsby_1925_jacket

The Book is not about Gatsby. Just because his name is in the title, doesn’t mean that is the subject. Jay Gatsby is a self-righteous twat used by the real main character, Nick to show the glitz over substance society of 1920s America. Wrongly identified as the protagonist and somehow praised as a good character, he receives much undeserved acclaim. 

1- Tidus.

tidus

Auron was wrong. This was not Tidus’ story, it was Yuna’s. This fact would not be so important if Tidus didn’t exclaim that it is his story every five fucking minutes. Barely beating Wakka out as far as stupid Final Fantasy X characters go. This guy has some huge fan following and he is by folds the most annoying person in your party. Why would you want him back in the sequel? Tidus can suck my Blitzball.

Go Enjoy the Existence

One must live for today. One must stand with open arms to the world around them, embracing it for what is not what could have been. The problems arise when you find yourself contemplatively losing yourself in a moment. By reflecting upon how something could be relived and acted upon differently you often find yourself wandering through your mind and trying to recalculate the past. Over thought of what could have been and not what is can often be a tedious and deadly mistress. Sure, one should actively review actions and learn from the missteps made in those actions, but to live in the now is a real error. You must co-habitat with the present and live in the instant. Embrace the immediate moment. Talk to that pretty girl, stay out a little late, have a meaningless conversation, watch that stupid movie. Live. One must occasionally walk barefoot in the snow or get shit face drunk on their birthday. Life is too short and we are too small and menial amongst a vast universe to not enjoy that chocolate bar or the fog that hides the moon. In a violent and hectic existence, one must take heed and enjoy all the wonder. Breath deep friends, all the problems, stresses and strains will be there tomorrow.  Go enjoy the existence.

Outside Looking In

Sometimes it takes a friend. Sometimes it takes a friend for you to recognize your own flaws. Those hard standing habits that have become so structurally significant to you. Those stubborn things you allow to persist without even noticing them. Sometimes, it just takes a friend to shine the candle in just the right way for you to see your own shadow. That demented reflection of yourself that cannot encapsulate your better qualities. Darkly it has crept within you, bestowing upon you traits you never wanted. Embedded within you so deeply, it takes a second set of eyes to find them. It is a shattering and unnerving feeling to see your flaws laid out before you. That moment when you have all the evidence before you, yet you still want to claim innocence. All you can do is absorb it. Take in the criticisms and grow from them. Even in small areas allow them to make you a better person. Remember that recognition is the first step to transformation.  So swallow your pride and proceed better. Go out and improve yourself. Take a trusted suggestion or two to heart. Do not allow yourself to be placid and stagnant in your own self betterment. We were never meant to sit still. We were meant to fail miserably and succeed gloriously. We were meant to observe and report. We were meant to improve ourselves and the others around us. Just take the criticisms, accept your blemishes and do whatever is in your power to polish them up a little. Beyond the goals of rising above, past the notions of furtherance of self, it is imperative that you thank that friend for their observations.

Welcome to Episode b:…S about F words

To all the new listeners and those returning, thank you.

This is what could best be described as the second pilot episode; the co-pilot one could say.

In it this time is well, some BS at the beginning, theft of weird items, atomic radiated spider ninjas, and steampunk. Then we get a little serious/preachy about censorship. Throughout the whole thing many bad puns.

This episode is marked extra explicit for the overabundance of real and fictitious swearing and Cody’s general offensive nature.
