My first ever radio show went well on Saturday!
Alright, now on to the negativity:
The NFC lost the Pro Bowl. Strike 1.
The Portland Trail Blazers lost AGAIN, this time to the PG Stephen Curry-less Golden State Warriors, in Portland. Strike 2.
Can you tell I’m having a tough time with the positivity today? Sports really make or break my day.
Also, I still don’t have a debit card because my bank screwed up. Strike 3.
Well, I watched Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace today. Or, part of it. The Pro Bowl put a hold on the movie. Then I finished it after the Pro Bowl. So, all of it. Anyway, I’ll let you guys be the judge of how positive watching Star Wars Episode I is.
I watched Star Wars Episode VI: The Return of the Jedi yesterday. That was definitely a positive. I have a friend here who thinks that the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy is better than the Star Wars Original Trilogy. He is literally the ONLY person I have ever known who thinks that. I’m not exaggerating. He is the ONLY one. The Star Wars Original Trilogy features the top 2 movies of all-time, and 3 of the top 5 movies of all-time. The only movie from the Star Wars prequel trilogy that makes the top 10 movies of all-time is Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. Even Star Wars Episode III is only at #10. Make no mistake, my friend is WRONG. The Star Wars Original Trilogy is heads above the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy. But, it’s all Star Wars, so it’s all good.
I also watched The Shining over the weekend. Jack Nicholson is a great actor. No idea who the woman in The Shining is. The Shining definitely wasn’t as scary as I had been led to believe. It may be due to the fact that The Shining was made in the 80’s, so it was kind of cheesy with some of the editing. The Shining had a well-written story-line, though. Plus, now I get the references to The Shining in the “Hereeeeee’s Lassie!” episode of Psych.
Speaking of Psych, I watched some Behind the Scenes footage while I was taking a break from my big INFO 1010 project. James Roday’s audition tape, writers’ commentaries on the pilot, and interviews with all of the main Psych cast members (James Roday, Dule Hill, Maggie Lawson, Timothy Omundson, Corbin Bernsen, and Kirstin Nelson) all included. EPIC!!! Did you know that the main writer behind Psych (Steve Franks) is 6’8″?! I’ve seen him standing next to the Psych cast members and I always thought he was tall, but GEEZ!!! 6’8″ is INSANE!!! He also is a member of the band “The Friendly Indians“, who performed the Psych theme song.
Just an FYI regarding my radio show: The show is called the Bleacher Bums. Me and two of my friends are said Bleacher Bums. We are on the air every Saturday from 3pm-4pm. Tune it for our Sports Talk at kxduradio.com
Is destiny Written in the Stars? Or, do you write your own destiny? It’s a matter of predetermination. I will say this much: nothing goes according to plan. It doesn’t matter if it’s your plan or nature’s plan for you. There will always be bumps in the road. The most important thing is to be yourself. Don’t ever change who you are just to fit a plan. Find a plan that aligns with who you are. I realize that I am being hypocritical as I say that because I’ve just recently come to realize that I shouldn’t be sweating the “mistakes” that I’ve made by being myself. I know that I still think about those “mistakes” because I can’t help but thinking that they were “mistakes” because of the end result. But, I followed my heart and that’s what gets me past those, and other moments of doubt. I just keep following my heart, and my brain aids if it is needed. That’s what I encourage all of you to do. We are not defined by what others think of our decisions, but rather, by what we think of our own decisions. It doesn’t matter if you feel your destiny is predetermined, or if you feel you are continuously shaping your destiny every second of your life. Why? Either way, you should be who you are. After all, only YOU can shape your own destiny.
