Mother's Day

Today I watched Stepmother, it is a film from 1998, with Susan Sarandon and Julia Roberts. A man who divorces his wife (Sarandon) and re-marries a younger woman (Roberts), has two children with (Sarandon). Sarandon's character learns she has cancer and undergoes treatment while despising her younger replacement. Sarandon and Roberts eventually become friends and so on. The movie made me realize I miss my mom, even though she is still here. I'm 19 going on 20 on Monday (June 25th) and I live with both of my parents. Yet I still miss my mom, and there are times I know I won't have with her even though she is still here. Even if I could spend every hour with her for the rest of her life it won't be enough, and selfishly enough I want her around for ever. I love my mom more than anything else, even more than the girl I want to spend the rest of my life with. I would do anything for my mom, I would probably even kill for her, because she means so much to me. There are times when she pisses me off, but I try to think of how short our lives are to be angry at one another. I know that one day my mom will leave my life forever, and I am scared of that day and the day after and the day after. I have no idea what I will do when she dies what I do know is that a lot of crying will be involved, but I don't know how I will go on. I've had nightmares where I imagine that she will never come home, and I woke up and cried. I don't cry much but for my mother I would cry, because she means so much to me and that is all that matters. I just hope that other people can realize the special relationship a person can have with their mother. That is all I have to say right now. Thanks for reading this and pass it on to your mother if you think they might enjoy it.

Am I Bovvered?

I found this today after I watched a channel 4 movie "The Trial of Tony Blair" the movie was interesting and I don't know if Blair, played by Robert Lindsay. I don't know if his Tony Blair was the hero of the movie. However, I felt sorry for Blair in this movie. He was a very sympathetic character in the movie. Now please don't attack me for this I don't follow British politics I know that Blair is the current PM who is stepping down on the 27th of June (two days after my birthday), and Gordon Brown is the heir apparent as PM (prime minister).

This isn't the reason I did this post, I just wanted to share a laugh. This is all for now, I will update you soon with my plans with this blog and if it will go on at all. Thanks for reading, Goodnight and Good Luck.

Don't Stop Believing

*Authors Note, If you haven't seen the finale and don't want to hear about it don't read this, but then again who reads this anyways?

I understand that everyone else that has seen the whole Series of The Sopranos, just a few episodes, or just the finale have something to say about the finale. From what I've read with my two eyes there are a lot of people that are pissed off, going as far as threatening to cancel their HBO subscription. Well I like Entourage, so I won't be canceling.

I myself who has never really followed mob movies/tv except for, of course, The Godfather didn't come to the Sopranos until midway through the third season when I pleaded my parents to get HBO. I actually told them I would pay for half. I learned of the Sopranos through my cousin and hearing other people talk about it. From my starting point, I loved the show and following Tony around and wandering who's going to be offed this season.

The Sopranos was more than just the mob and murder though, and that is what made it so prolific. I don't want to say that it made an anti-hero a hero, I don't believe that. Tony Soprano was like most Americans, had a family with 2 kids and a wonderful wife. Tony's exception he happened to be a crime boss that happened to have a few personal issues, but who doesn't in this fucked up world right?

Tony's relationship with the viewer was what made him such a good character. That is why he isn't an anti-hero, he is just a guy that we could relate with, looking out for his family be it a business family or his own family. That is exactly why he couldn't be killed off, when it came down to it killing off Tony would be a lot like Killing a bit of ourselves. Having the show end the way it did, with him and the family was the best way for it to end because when it comes down to it, we can't stop believing can we?
