Where Do We Come From Anyway?
More and more, movies seem to be directing us towards darker parts of our mind. The mysteries about supernatural entities and monsters keep coming up as reoccurring themes. This is more than just weird fantasy in our imagination. On a spiritual level, we are trying to deal with subconscious memories that keep coming to the surface. Harry Potter, Constantine, Hellboy, Vampires, Zombies are probably the stuff of interesting past lives.

Even lighter material like Star Wars and Star Trek harken back to advanced civilizations that some of us feel nostalgia for.

An individual isn't just a piece of meat that is alive one moment and dead the next. Obviously, we are on a long, long journey towards self enlightenment and memory recovery. I am. Are you?

The Movie Constantine And Multiple Demonic Personality Disorder
The Hollywood obsession with Christian mythology continues in Constantine. What some might call supernatural visions others(shrinks)might call multiple demonic personality disorder.

Encountering one's personal demons, doesn't mean that one has been to hell and back. Memories of past evils can haunt a being until he does something about it.

The fact that some past lives have incredible monstrous conflicts attests to our creative game playing ability on a higher spiritual level.

Despite what the critics say, this film should be number one at the boxoffice this weekend.

Top Quote Concerning The NHL Lockout
"NHL owners and players assume hockey fans are different, that we will return like cows at milking time." Columnist Mike Strobel-Toronto Sun

From the 1930s to 1967, the original six NHL teams created a cash cow for its owners(See the book called "Net Worth"). From 1968 to 2004, this cash cow was practically sucked dry by the players and the owners. With thirty thristy teams feeding on this "cow's teats", it was hotly disputed as to how much "milk was produced or left".

In 2005, the cash cow disappeared. Will it ever return?

Hockey's Darkest Hour
This is the day when the unscrupulous scavengers of the National Hockey League won over those who play for the love of the game.

That's been the trend in most professional sports over the last twenty years. It isn't whether you win or lose or even how you play the game. It's about creating those big paydays by any means possible.

I remember when hockey was the greatest sport on earth with only six teams. Do you?

A Portal Through The Space Time Continuum
Making first contact with other life forms is a dream that many of us have. It could be through space travel, but more likely it will come about through radio waves(SETI)or internet links. Obviously, it's easier sending and receiving messages than bodies and starships through space.

Science fiction, myths and even religions are attempts to visualize first contacts. It will happen, but maybe not in my lifetime.

What's Been Happening With My Day Job?
Mood:  not sure
Still working lots of overtime in the Toronto Exchange Office at Canadian Post(Three days this weekend). I wrote letters to the local/national union presidents and the president of Canada Post(Ann Joynt) concerning our need for more full time staff in our section(TEO).

Over the last year, the mail volume at our facility has more than tripled.

Needless to say, no postal or union honcho has answered my letters so far.

Movie Review 89: Phantom Of The Paradise
You might call this a rock of version of "Faust" meeting the "Phantom of the Opera". The songs tell the story just as well as the plot.

It's satire that takes more than one viewing to understand.

It's well sung and well acted. Perhaps, too deep for most audiences.

Definitely, it's a cult favourite with me. Three and half stars.

Top Ten Things You Don't Say To A Traffic Cop
1. I can't reach my license unless you hold my beer. (OK in Texas)2. Sorry, Officer, I didn't realize my radar detector wasn't plugged in. 3.Aren't you the guy from the Village People? 4. Are You Andy or Barney? 5. I thought you had to be in relatively good physical condition to be a police officer. 6. You're not gonna check the trunk, are you? 7. Gee, Officer! That's terrific. The last officer only gave me a warning, too! 8. I was trying to keep up with traffic. Yes, I know there are no other cars around.. That's how far ahead of me they are. 9. When the Officer says "Gee .Your eyes look red, have you been drinking?" You probably shouldn't respond with,"Gee Officer your eyes look glazed, have you been eating doughnuts?" 10. I saw you turn on your flashers when you went through that red light a few miles back. Lets call it even.

"Boogeyman" Number One At The Boxoffice
Despite incredibly bad reviews, "Boogeyman" trounced the competition at the boxoffice over the weekend. Obviously, there's still a big demand for mysterious spooky bad guys.

The promise of chills and thrills continue to drive young audiences into theatres.

There is some dispute, however, as to what is actually delivered in this film.
