Wow. It's been 2 years since my last post. So much has happened since then.
Not really.
Anywho...I think I'm going to reboot this whole thing and start with a clean slate. Does anyone have a clean slate I can borrow? Hello? This thing on?

First, let's us me introduce myself shall I? Hi. Ok now that we've gotten that out of the way. Let's talk movies and why Jay likes them.

There are no bad movies. No wait...yes there are. Let me start over. There are no bad movies. Dammit! Did it again. Writing is hard. Ok here we go. It was the best of times, it was the wors...shit. I'm just not very good at this.

Perhaps I should take a different approach. Movies can be good. Movies can be bad. Movies can be forgettable. However, they are all entertaining in there own way. That is unless they are not. Huh? Eventually I'm going to stumble on something profound so just bare with me. In the meantime, picture a monkey riding a tricycle while smoking a cigar. Now THAT'S entertaining. Silly monkey. I guess my point is you either enjoy movies or you don't. For me it's about the entire experience. Popcorn or Raisinets and a large Diet Coke (with extra ice), the previews, and that teenager sitting two rows in front of you who is so dedicated to their friend that they must text them throughout the entire movie. Then the movie starts and you are sucked into a world of mystery, comedy, and/or adventure. Or you are just sucked into a world that sucks. No matter how good, bad, or indifferent you feel about the movie you are watching, you'll have something to talk about. "Man that was the best Elvis vs. Mummy movie I’ve ever seen “or” That movie was so bad that I died a little inside".

A very good friend once accused me of liking every movie. I won't mention any names, but you know who you are Darren. I guess in a way he was right. For me it's a great escape from reality. It could be a reality you wish was your own or a reality that makes you wish you would have spent your valuable time doing something else like watching a monkey riding a tricycle while smoking a cigar. [giggle]

Whatever the case, movies make me happy. Even the bad ones.
