I had a dream the otehr night. This dream was the exact plot of the Terminator, the first movie, but all the characters were the fish from Finding Nemo. Nemo was John connor, and Nemo’s dad was Kyle Reese. Makes sense, right? The Terminators were all played by the large aquatic predators; some whales, sharks, manta rays.

I”m thinking of selling the rights to my dream to Pixar. Or maybe Fox.

Why Karl Marx Was Wrong About Anything He Ever Said Ever

Posted in Uncategorized on January 9, 2009 by jh montgomery

So here’s a fun little Google image search you can try! Try searching for “carbuncles.”

Actually, by “fun” I mean “one of the most disgusting and potentially scarring things I’ve ever seen.” So why am I googling such horrific things? I’m glad you asked.

This is why Karl Marx was wrong about anything he ever said ever.

I was reading a list of the 15 Famously Filthy People From the Pages of History, and Karl Marx is on that list. He’s one of two that actually made me gag. Apparently he viewed bathing as a luxury of the bourgeois, and as a result suffered from these carbuncles. Well, I don’t know if suffered is the word. Maybe luxuriated. He looked at his poor hygiene as some kind of sign of his crusade. He was suffering for his cause.

But what I don’t get is why. The man was an evolutionist. How could he not recognize that every other animal needs to clean itself, and has a way to do so? Many animals lick themselves clean, some animals actually bathe in water, some need the help of smaller animals, but every animal has a way to clean itself.

Except for Marx. And I just can’t trust a man who lacks basic observational skills to handle my governing concepts (clever readers insert Bush joke here. Arf ar ar!).

This is why Karl Marx was wrong about anything he ever said ever.

Morning.

My wife and I run a joint blog, where we theoretically talk about life together. What actually happens is that it doesn’t get used. Not often at least. At any rate, there are certain things I want to talk about that don’t really relate to our life together. Mainly things of a pop/culture nature. This is where I talk about that sort of stuff. I don’t want this to be just a movie/media review website, and I don’t really want to go out and see all the latest whatever it is so that I can give it two thumbs way up, or two thumbs kind of down. Mainly, I just want to talk about the things I encounter in culture, and the way it effects me, why I chose it, things like that. For example, an ongoing project I want to undertake is going through my album collection, describing each disk (no matter how virtual the disk actually is), why I picked it up, how much (if) I listened to it, and why. Another thing I want to do is a simple comparison between guitar hero and rockband. And as I see movies that are meaningful in some way, I’ll talk about that. If I read a really good book, I’ll talk about that.

This blog was also the result of a “New Year’s Resolution,” if you want to call it that. But I don’t think I’ll call it that. It’s not entirely accurate. It’s more like a New Year Objective, as I’m not really resolving to do anything, or resolving not to do anything, but I am making a priority, an objective, of writing. And this is a portion of that. My wife said to me, “It’d be nice if we could make an objective of creativity this year. Really make time for creativity.” I liked that, and this is me doing my part. Well, the part that you can see.
