One of the best things about getting older is that I don't have to listen to others people telling me what to do and especially what I should like and not like. I don't presume to know so much about others that I would ever deem their choices in entertainment or adoration to be right or wrong.
For that and SO many other reasons I am just loving this trailer for the new 'Resident Evil' movie 'Afterlife'. I never did play the game but the first movie is one of my all time favorites and the 3 movies before the one coming out this September rate high amoung my favorite trilogies of all time.
This trailer touts many things I hate - like the name James Cameron and the photo effect known as 3-D. So, yes, you may call me a hypocrite and I will take that just to see the newest technology in filmaking being used to beef up one of my favorite movie franchises.
It seems like they have taken the idea of a hundred 'Alices' and cranked up the action to an 11 (that's one more than ten, kids).
So I will be there on September 10th. I will wear the silly glasses and I will pay $15 or more to see Milla in all her zombie killing glory and if I am lucky, I will only pee my pants a little while doing so.
Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
