Life, the Universe, and Everything

Do you ever ponder the universe, and what it is? Is it infinite? Is it ever expanding? Even if it IS ever expanding, what is it expanding into? Empty space? How much of that empty space is there and where did it come from? Some might say God, but where did God come from? I get the feeling that the logical conclusion to life…everything…is that it shouldn’t even exist.


I was watching History or Discovery the other night and there was a special about the universe, and that how in billions of years from now, we won’t be able to see any other galaxies, even with the most powerful telescopes, because of how far apart they will have expanded away from our galaxy. If there is sentient life on Earth, or any other planet in our Galaxy for that matter, that far from now, they will have every reason to believe that the edge of our galaxy is the edge of the known universe and that there is nothing else out there. For all they will know is that our galaxy is a self contained bubble in a void of blackness. Of course they will have questions like “how did it all begin?” but for all they will know, “all” is only the Milky Way.

They will have it easier, they will have less to explain. Of course, they will be wrong anyway because unbeknownst to them, there IS a whole universe out there, other galaxies beyond the dark reaches of the nether. The point is, I am alive right now, and how am I to explain what the hell is going on with this infinitely black void we call the universe, spotted with galaxies. Sure, I could say “God” did it, but then where did God come from? Where did the space or plane or dimension he occupies come from?

I don’t think about this stuff too often, but when it does, I get really depressed, because like I said, the only logical conclusion I can draw is that life shouldn’t even exist. But it does. What the fuck.

$199 Computer

Link: $199 Computer

For what it is, this would be a horrible home computer. For what its worth, I think I may actually pick one of these up in the future to serve as an emulator machine, as in loading it up with NES, SNES, Sega, Nintedo 64, GameBoy, and PS1 emulators, and even more if I forgot anyway, storing it up with roms, and then having like an all-in-one console plugged into my TV. I have an Xbox 360 controller that I could throw on this guy and play it with a controller like video games were meant to be. Of course, I need to buy a nice HDTV first, but I think it would be awesome to do this.

What if God had a Name?

Many thoughts cross my mind on a daily basis. Most of them are completely trivial. The problem is that I keep them bottled up inside and stew over them, so this will be a great outlet to get them out. This is just one of many thoughts that cross my mind.


I’m sure everyone has heard the song “One of Us” by Joan Osborne. One of the lyrics being “What if God had a name? What would it be and would you call it to his face?”

Now, it is implied she is talking about the Abrahamic God, as in the God of the Jewish, Christian, and Muslim faiths. That being the case, God DOES have a name. His name is Yahweh. And no, you do not call that name to his face, or even speak it aloud, as it is considered blasphemous.

Basically, Joan Osborne is a dumb bitch and the entire song is ruined thanks to her ignorance…Not that it was a good song to begin with.

Meh

Callin it quits. Got no reason to post on this thing ever. I work at Best Buy now so I got me a job. I still watch movies and play games and stuff. Saw “9” in the theaters as my most recent movie. It looked pretty but the story was mediocre. As for music, haven’t bought any CDs in a good while but I borrowed my friend’s Violent Femmes CD. Good stuff. And as for games, bought Kingdom Hearts DS and Oblivion. Both fun, Oblivion is better. This will probably be my last post here. I’m just not interested in blogging here anymore. Ta-ta

Media Galore

So where to start. Nothing new on the book front that I don’t think I already reported. In case I didn’t, Starfish and The Road are excellent books. I’ve been meaning to start Lucifer’s Hammer for a long time now but haven’t… it just looks so daunting. I bought a collection of H.G. Wells shorts, as well as H.G. Wells Time Machine and War of the Worlds. Maybe I will dig into those first.

Music? I haven’t really been buying any new CDs. I’ve gotten into Bob Dylan. My friend gave me two Bob Dylan CDs because he doesn’t really care for him.

Games: not much here either. I bought the Sims 3 when it came out and it consumed me for about a month but I haven’t touched it recently. I’m itching to start playing it again though. Marvel vs Capcom 2 on Xbox Live has been a blast as well. And I also burned some games ILLEGALLY for my Dreamcast (did I mention I bought a Dreamcast from the Flea Market earlier this year?). Mostly all the Capcom fighters.

Movies: I saw quite a few movies starting with Wolverine. I don’t think I ever commented on any of them. I saw quite a few so I will just run through them as a list with some short comments.

Wolverine – Started out looking good, but just became more and more disappointing as it went on. Not a complete waste of time. though. If you want to veg out and enjoy some action, check this one out.

Angels and Demons – Better than the Da Vinci code adaptation. You would only appreciate this if you read the book though. It’s pretty “meh” all around. Watch it if you have the time or liked the book.

Star Trek – I’ve never been a Trekkie, but I enjoyed this movie on the whole. I’ve heard bad things from some people, but mostly from Star Trek fans.

Year One – It was pretty funny, but not LAUGH OUT LOUD. Worth watching though.

District 9 – This movie is not epically mind blowing on all levels, but it is DEFINITELY the best movie to come out this summer (out of the one’s I saw anyway). I will say it’s amazing, but it is not the best movie of all time. Definitely worth watching.

Inglourious Basterds – Definitely the second best movie to come out this summer. The beginning and the ending are fantastic. The rest of the movie is good, but some parts in the middle drag on. If you like Tarantino, you will certainly not be disappointed with this, however. Also, the trailers lead you to believe it’s more action oriented than it really is.

Well, that’s it for the movies, and this post I guess. There were some movies that piqued my interest but I decided to wait until video, such as Public Enemies and The Taking Of Pelham 123, and Terminator: Salvation. Then there were other movies that when I first heard about them, I wanted to see, but as I heard and saw more stuff about them, I decided I do not want to see at all, and will probably see on video one day, but they will be on someone else’s dime. like G. I. Joe and Transformers 2.

Welp, I bid you good day (if anyone even reads this, which I doubt). As I said, I hope to use this blog more now since my life (hopefully) will be starting very soon.
