I was riding the Roo the other day, and boredom overtook me so I decided to count the number of times the girl sitting across from me said the word like. In a matter of 10 minutes, she managed to use it 43 times in just one conversation she was having on the phone. To add insult to injury, I am pretty sure like I heard her say that like she was like taking classes to be like an English major. My theory behind this is no one reads anymore, thanks to the film industry. No one needs books when they are turned into movies before they even hit paperback. What makes it even more pathetic is many books have become best sellers BECAUSE of their movie counterparts. Isn’t that a little backwards? In addition to killing our desire to read, they are also numbing our brains by taking already crappy movies, and re-crapifying them. Yes, I am aware that is not a word, but it proves my point. I mean honestly, was it really necessary to make a new Friday the 13th ? Haven’t we suffered enough already? It’s not like the plot’s changed or anything. I have never once in my life heard just one person say to me You really should see Friday the 13th because it’s a good movie. With that being said, why would some jerk want to make another one? The only thing scary about the re-make of this movie is that it implies the 80s are making a comeback. Talk about horrifying! I think we can all agree that hairspray, cut off jean jackets and hair metal are way more horrifying than hockey masks. No thanks. I have better things to do with my money, like go to the Mirage, which is an excellent hookah bar right next to the Lux in downtown Akron. If you like a relaxing environment, go check it out. On a side note, I made my weekend complete by watching a video of Nickelback get pelted with rocks in Portugal. It made me realize that other countries don’t hate Americans. They just hate our crappy rock music.
