To the producers of “The Expendables”

The next time you’re going to spend what are obviously millions upon millions of dollars to have a big name cast acting in a film full of big money special effects and production value heavy shots of all sorts, perhaps you could give the viewing audience a break and consider spending an extra few bucks and hire actual camera assistants that know how to pull focus, not to mention camera operators that know how to spot focus problems. Yes, these people do exist.

That’s it, it’s just that simple of a fix.

Oh yeah, all of those CGI blood splatter shots look like shit.

Mosque o’ the twin tower’s site….

Defenders of the planned project to build a mosque adjacent to the remains of the Twin Towers in New York are quick to say “Hey, there were Muslims that also died in New York on 9-11-2001“.

They were just clearing off their future mosque building site

They were just clearing off the building site for their future mosque 

This is actually true, and by doing just a brief search on this on the web, I now know that I can give you the names and photos of at least 19 of these Muslim  “victims”.

And, for the record they were mostly Saudi citizens, not Sadam’s Iraqi Elite armed forces.

Forgive? Never  -  Forget? Sure, but it will happen a few moments after I forgive.
