In Which I Talk About My Musical Life

Hey Readers.

Sorry I was gone few a few weeks there. Not much has been going on. First I’ll start with my Musical life.

James’ Musical Life.

I never was good at music. My brother and sister both played Piano at one point (my sister still does) but I never tried or was good at it. One day I decided I wanted to try something. I was about 13 years old. So I began playing the Trombone and took lessons every week. I continued for two years but never really felt attached until a few months before I stopped. After coming back from the two month trip I took to the east coast in the summer of 2009 (another story for another day), I began Drums. I’ve been playing them for roughly 5 months now and I finally feel musical. My set include a crappy pair of Hi Hat Cymbals, a 14′ Snare, A 13′ Hi Tom, 14′ Mid Tom, and of course a 20′ Bass. I recently got a Stagg 18′( I think) Ride Cymbal. I will go into my garage and rock out on them all day long.

That’s it for tonight. Hopefully I’ll have a new review up soon.

Goodnight.

Movie Reviewz: Avatar

Tonight review, Avatar, the 2009 american film Written and Directed By James Cameron, Starring Sam Worthington and Zöe Saldana

Avatar focuses on an epic conflict on Pandora, an inhabited Earth-sized moon of Polyphemus, one of three fictional gas giants orbiting Alpha Centauri A. On Pandora, human colonists and the sentient humanoid indigenous inhabitants of Pandora, the Na’vi, engage in a war over the planet’s resources and the latter’s continued existence -Wikipedia

The movie that everyone is raving about. Let’s start at story. It was bad. The plot was, really. Not the story. It was pretty much James Cameron Showing everyone that he can do whatever he wants. Make a 4 hour movie about a boat that sinks, or a 2-hour movie about horror in space (I’m not mentioning the first one here. Aliens is the sequel to the first films, Alien directed by Ridley Scott).

It was absolutely stunning when it comes to effects. The human eye could barely register see things that are there because of Cameron’s attention to detail. It was so real. The aliens were fantastic and looked great. The planet itself was beautifully done and how everything worked done to the foliage was perfection. Back to plot, don’t go see it looking for a great story. I could tell who was going to kick it twenty minutes in.

As for the acting and writing, Mr. Cameron should have gone for a better writer. The acting was good. Sam Worthington did what he could with the material given as did the other actors.

In closing, I thought the movie was confusing. I can understand the most trippy time-travel plot, but I cannot for the life of me, figure out who was on whose side. I believe it was because the movie was 3 – hours long. The whole thing kind of meshed together in my brain.
