Warning: The following post may have an abundance of strong language. So if you do not want to read a rant that has nothing to do with the mission statement of this site, please stop now.
I am going to go ahead and apologize now. My last few posts have been kinda negative. This one is no different. I think that Texas is turning me into a bitter, bitter man. Also I have nothing against children so keep that in mind.
Anyway, this weekend I broke one of my own rules. I went to the theater on a day that would have more people seeing movies than I usually do. Let me tell you if you want to see a microcosm of the issues of the day, don't watch CNN head down to your local cineplex.
This is the epitome of the fucking "Me Generation". Having this experience makes me dread the future for humanity.
I went to see "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" which is rated PG-13 for intense and frightening sequences of action and violence. The theater was FULL of fucking kids under the age of 10, down to at least three ankle biters that had to be 3 or 4 years old. Now the flick is not bloody or gory, however it does have some pretty damn graphic violence and lots of monkeys getting fucking blasted with shotguns and beat with various blunt objects. A kid that young can not make the distinction between fantasy and reality. There is no need for that child to be in that movie...ever. It is bad parenting and just shows that the parents care less about both their kid and other people than their own entertainment.
On top of all the fucking kids there were a handful of fucking shit stains that were texting during the entire movie. If you can't wait to talk to your idiot friends for 2 hours, don't go to the damn theater. Of course when you politely ask this dick head to turn the sound off on their phone and refrain from texting, you're the asshole that is stopping that person from doing what ever the hell they want to do no matter what. This person wanted to get into a physical confrontation because I asked him to stop being a fucking douchbag, acting like it was middle school and saying that he would "see me outside". Of course once the credits rolled he was one of the first ones out and walking to my car I saw no hide or hair of him.
Fuck that. What happened to courtesy to others? When did being a total and complete asshole in public become okay?
Okay, that is done with. Again I apologize, and I know that this has nothing to do with Comics, Games, or Booze. I just had to get it out and rant. And I know that it is a statement that has been expressed many more times by those way more eloquent than myself. Anyway, I promise that next week will be much less bitter.
To lighten the mood here is a picture of a monkey.
