Today, as almost all of you know (because you probably have the day off) is Memorial Day. And while it is fun to enjoy today with about ten shots followed by a "nap" in your back yard, it's important not to forget who this day is really about. So, to all the active and retired military personnel, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for your service to this country. God Bless you all.

I recently watched a movie called "The Grey" with Liam Neeson. It's a good movie about a few plane crash survivors who have to fend off wolves. In it, they talk a lot about death and faith. It made me think a lot about my own faith. In highschool, I always said that I wasn't afraid of death, just the process because I "knew where I was going" But recently, I started thinking more about Faith, God, life, and death. For some reason, I'm becoming more scared of death. Not because I don't believe in God anymore, but because of my (seemingly) shifting opinions on issues like the death penalty, same sex marriage, and other controversial issues. In the upcoming month or so (while I compile the list of 100 scary movies to watch) I will probably be posting a bit more about these issues. feel free to like it on StumbleUpon, comment, or just visit again.

So yesterday was the opening day of The Avengers, and I somehow managed to go to it despite being short on time and money. Before the review starts, let me tell you this up front. Search your couch cushions and car ashtrays. Try to come up with the 9$ it takes to see it in theaters because it...is...awesome. It had the original actors for Thor, Iron Man, Loki, Captain America, and Fury. The new actors were for the Hulk, Black Widow, and Bulls-eye. If You were debating seeing it, I would highly recommend it. Despite being action packed and suspenseful, it was also genuinely funny, in both a mature way and kid-friendly way. The suspense was actually suspenseful and involving. You felt like you were right there with them through the tough spots and the funny moments. All around, I give it 4.5 zombie hordes out of 5. It's a great movie.
