Another One Bites The Dust

“The richness of life lies in memories we have forgotten.”~ Cesare Pavese

Amazing how quickly that I can get into trouble by clicking on a few “bad links” over the Internet.

Lost in translation to many, I found myself wandering the pages of Google Plus.

This is NOT a social networking site that I frequent at all. In fact, the only reason why I have it in the first place is because of the stupid merge that YouTube had with Google.

Before I knew it, I couldn’t have my old YouTube account without linking it to some Google Plus account. So I gave in, for the sake of YouTube.

Until a few days ago.

My fingers moving quicker than my own brain, clicking that stupid mouse key until I found myself into someone else’s Google Plus account. At once I thought why not?!? So I went to add a few people to my circles but didn’t realize that there was a daily limit to that action. And then I found that feature that every social networking site has, called the “From your contacts” which will go into any other networking site you may have or your e-mail address book and find friends.


I found that in the list of friendly Google Plus suggestions, women of my past. Women that I either had something with and it went absolutely and terribly wrong or wanted something with and never got there and then had them fade away.   And of course, as I have been complaining for many years now, some were just friends that my ex at the time had some kind of stupid and ridiculous insecurity about their looking better than she and I was only going to fall for them, so she went way out of her way to ruin the relationships entirely.rosita1

Why Google?? Why bring back those horrible and miserable memories?? You bastard! You digital social bastard!!!!

I was happy.  I was in the moment. I was talking with someone new at the time that just blew me away! And you have to punch me in the junk like that??

I realize that 99% of these women will never return. Particularly the ones that I either walked away from, had disappear on me, or didn’t want anything with me. Attempting now to rekindle seems ruthlessly stupid and unnecessary. Time flies an we all move on. I mean, we are talking about me not speaking to any of these women at all since 2007 and before!! That’s a long time. I am sure that many of them have moved on.

And so I went back to my original feelings and opinion about Google Plus, you nasty group of people. Shame on thee for nearly destroying my weekend.

My heart bleeds for vampire film lovers across the world.
The re-make of the beloved gothic soap opera made for a film “Dark Shadows” comes out in May. It is by Tim Burton and stars Johnny Depp as “Barnabas Collins”.
When I heard the news about a new “Dark Shadows” film, I was thrilled to death. When I heard that Johnny Depp was taking the lead role, I began to get nervous. And now that I’ve seen trailers for this new film… I weep heavily.
This film is going to take on its own life. I have high doubts that much of anything from the classic television series will be taken into account. And from what I’ve seen so far, it comes across more as a “dark comedy”. 
That bothers me because the original series of “Dark Shadows” was anything but funny. Plus from the trailer that I watched, seems to have a lot of sexual content in it.
It will be what it will be, but that still bothers me that it appears that when they made this film, that they held nothing sacred. I pray that I’m wrong!!!
I can remember the re-birth of “Dark Shadows” as a television series when Ben Cross played as Barnabas Collins. I got into it back, but it was pulled. Looking back now, I can see why. Even though I was disappointed that they took it off the air.
So I really don’t know what to do or say about this film. It looks terrible though.
Vampire film lovers, I wonder what they will think. Although it is safe to say that 102% of the female population and film lovers will go purely for the eye candy that is Johnny Depp.
Such high hopes I had for this film. I’m not sure if I will go see it or not when it opens in theaters. I just know that I am extremely disappointed in what I have seen so far.
But then again, we are talking about Tim Burton here. Say what you will, but Burton will always re-create beloved classics and turn them into epic acid trips.
“Chocolate Factory”, “Alice In Wonderland”, and now… “Dark Shadows”!! (Needless to say, all films re-done by Tim Burton, and all starring Johnny Depp.)
As a fellow lover of vampire films, I can only hope and pray that there is enough folklore and tradition in this film, as well as having the Burton touch to it.
Ladies, boo me all you want. We’ll see!!
Hollywood, as a whole though has right now a terrible reputation for taking older films and trying to re-make them, and failing miserably. Horror films that were extremely popular in the 1980’s were given re-makes and every last one of them flopped like a fish out of water. Hollywood doesn’t know how to come up with any original ideas any more.
Until then, I’ll support the original soap opera series and stick with its stories and legend.
