Guess who?s back. Sorry I have not posted in forever. No I don?t have any updated pictures just here to update my life. My wife is 8 months pregnant. She is due August 29th. It?s a boy . We named him Hunter Liston. Hunter Hearst Liston to be exact. It started as kind of a joke because we could not figure out names and we were watching Triple H and I joked Hunter Hearst Liston. Steph liked it and it stuck. I like the name don?t love it I?m afraid people are going to give him shit over being named after a wrestler though he is not. Steph says he is though.
Can?t agree on anything else so that?s it. I like it though it has a nice ring to it and we can?t agree on anything else. For the record he is not named after Triple H aka Hunter Hearst Helmsly aka The Game aka The King of Kings. A ton of nicknames to be sure. Speaking of wrestling I was thrilled with raw. Putting the title on C.M. Punk was not only a smart move but a brilliant one. Do we really need another Cena run with it.
In film I can?t seem to get myself excited for The Dark Knight. Hellboy, Iron Man, Indy, Wanted but not Batman. Probably because I?m sick of hearing about it. Heath Ledger will probably be great as the Joker but the film still looks like a passable superhero film. Still I like action movies in fact its my favorite Genre but Nolan behind something should get me more excited. Memento and The Prestige are brilliant. I found that win I started out a movie buff I was more interested in Scorsese and the prestige films. I was dying to see every Italian Neorealist and French New Wave film I could get my hands on.
I still love those films but then I watch something like The Killer or Hard-Boiled or Heroes of the East. Sorry it?s what I love. I love the action films. I like it because I think like horror, fantasy, and Sci Fi I feel it is what makes cinema great. I don?t apologize for it. I feel that film should be the realm of fantasy. That?s why I love Del Toro?s films such as Hellboy and Blade II. Film should not always be realistic or even logical. It should be emotional. It?s an emotion and character driven art form where as the printed word is not. You want stark realism read a non fiction book you want the modern day myth and legends or even modern day cave paintings or campfire tales watch The Matrix. Christ I even like Under Siege a Segal film. Wow.
Sorry about the rant on the personal side fatherhood is not as scary as I thought it would be. I?m rather looking forward to it. Baby will be a new experience for me my step daughter was 4 when I got married. Little Hunter I think will bring more joy when he comes then anything next to my daughter and wife. Speaking of married life we recently celebrated are one year anniversary. Fuck a duck has it been that long. That first year was tough but we made it because we had each other. There was one time I wanted to leave last august not so much out of anything Steph did but just pure fear. I told Stephanie that I was going to leave and she started crying.
I figured that would happen but I did not figure it would effect me like it did. Then she started balling and I was like oh shit what did I do. I can?t hurt her. The great thing was I stayed and were better for it. Admittedly things were rushed between us but as I got to know her she is everything I ever wanted and could ask for. She is smart, non judgmental, funny, loves horror and action films like I do. She is more of a horror girl though. She is caring and kind and as had a lot of bad shit happen to her that should never have happened but she is stronger for it.
Stephanie lights my life and I?m not the cynic I could be. I?m a better person now. Well that?s enough lovey dovey stuff lol. I moved from Iowa to Texas. I can?t quite figure out which band of conservatives are crazier. About politics is the best we have Obama and McCain. I think the cats living under my house are better qualified then these two. Hillary would be a better candidate to do experience but she has the Bill baggage with her. John McCain is just crazy. I don?t know if I buy that he would be a third Bush term but I?m really not going to chance it.
Still I like the fact he pisses of some conservatives because he is willing or was willing to jump the isle and do things his way. Rare in politics . Obama is not a bad guy. He is also very charismatic but I just can?t get behind him. He has only been a senator for a short time. Meaning he has not had the experience on the national stage to really experience what that is like. 10-20 years in the senate even a cabinet position to give him a really good taste as to what national politics are like. Then again his lack of time on the national stage may benefit him because he has not amassed a record like Kerry did that would hurt him.
I like Obama I think he is a decent person I even agree with most of his policies I just feel we should have gotten somebody with the experience and political know how of McCain to run against the crazy old codger. I notice just from what I see that he seems to be somebody the republicans can bate into something. Also he does seem to be aiming more towards the center then the left these days which is good but he beat Hilary because people for some odd reason believe he represents change. He doesn?t. Any democratic candidate including a chimp would be a better choice then the current chimp in office. Personally I was kind of getting behind Edwards there. One more thing to the Hilary supporters who say they would vote for John McCain since Clinton lost the nomination . First of all she put up a hell of a fight. However she probably did more harm then good. The Clinton?s have always been good at getting a cult like following towards them. Just something about the two that is incredibly charismatic. Also the fact that republicans hate them is a good enough reason for me to like them. FYI I don?t hate republicans at all I can?t hate anybody for there beliefs. Sorry if this sounds like republican bashing.
Anyways her supporters will cross party lines just because Hilary did not win the dems nomination. I don?t think most will. Still those that do don?t be so stupid. It?s idiotic say the least. Think about it if your voting out of spite for anybody is completely stupid but if you?re a democrat and mostly agree with Obama yet you vote for McCain think about that. It?s what you will get. Well that?s it later. Hopefully soon.
