Also, our judiciary system is very lenient, there are many ways to ramble on for five years, until the crime "expires". We need stricter laws.Expires? I'm not sure if things like that are even possible in Europe :p
Hahaha, yeah, there's a model we should follow. :P
Basically, if someone commits a crime today, in five years time that crime won't count anymore. And it's just one of the examples of how bad our judiciary system is. Some of the things I remember...
- If you're a teenager, no matter what drime you commit, in a maximum of three years time you criminal file will be clean. Like if it never happened;
- If you have a "good behaviour" in prision, you'll only take 1/3 of the original punishment;
- You can respond to lawsuits in freedom, you just need to try and they'll concede you an habeas corpus.
- The maximum punishment is about 35 years. With the good behaviour thing... ~12 years? Even if you kill 1,000 people? Riiiight...
Also, I always find it strange that countries run investigations against their own politicians. I mean I always thought that the politicians were pretty much in charge of that. Or does the guy have many enemies in his own government?
Not really. I mean, here we have innumerous political parties, so other parties can fill lawsuits against other politicians as well.
But what our governor did was a blatant crime: he was taped getting public money. It's a whole complicated story, but everyone can see him with blocks of money in that tape. One of his party members hid money in his underwear and socks, another one began praying, thanking God for the stolen money...
Really, I'm losing the little faith I had in our politicians.
Hahaha, I remember that. Also, when he was trying to stop their airplane, he pretty much didn't care about the oxygen masks. :PHaha oh yeah! He was standing there, shooting at the aircraft for like a full minute before he went back to breathe.
IT'S TIME TO KICK ASS AND CHEW BUBBLE GUM. AND I'M ALL OUT OF GUM.
Until he realized his health bar was dropping, thus he had to put the mask before dying there. :P
I also loved how he was just sipping his coffee when he was blasting the crap out of that home tree with those helicopters. That was probably my favorite action scene from the entire movie.
Hahahahaha, that was a great scene indeed, despite being really emotional in the end of it. Maybe we should change the sentence to:
IT'S TIME TO KICK ASS AND DRINK COFFEE.
And yeah, those 3D glasses aren't the best invention ever. I had several headaches during the film, where I had to take the glasses off and rest my view for a few seconds. Although I think they won't release a "regular" version for it, though. It's up to the movie staff.That's a complaint I hear more often. People getting headaches in the cinemas after a while and from some people I even heard they had to leave after 20 minutes or so. Gotta say that my eyes also started to hurt after an hour or so.
Well, I didn't see anybody leaving the room during the movie and not returning. But I'm pretty sure not everyone was satisfied with those glasses.
Another complaint I heard was from my dad. He wears glasses, and using a glass in front of another one wasn't very pleasant. He had to adjust it all the time.
That's one of the main reasons why I don't like 3D cinema so much. I mean I can just feel that my eyes are simply being deceived.
But hey, what about those grenades and missiles coming up towards you, eh? :P
What I also hate is that there are more and more movies coming out right now which are only in 3D.
Indeed. I think the new Shrek and Toy Story will be 3D only too. I wasn't going to watch then anyway, but yeah.
Like next weekend I'll be going to Alice in Wonderland, but I will have to watch it in 3D and I will have to pay a few euros extra for that. I don't want to pay extra >=(
Right, that's something else. The original prices in here were about 50% cheaper than the 3D movies. And they weren't announcing the 3D prices anywhere, we got to know it at the balcony.
I think so, her music was being more downloaded than bought, I believe.
Hehe well if your music is being downloaded more than bought than I can imagine that can kinda suck if you are an artist :p But I bet she is still earning plenty of money anyway, so... I can't feel sorry for her.
She played a couple of concerts in here not so long ago. If half the profit went to her, she can't complain about anything.
Also meh.. I got a feeling it's a war they can't win anyway. I mean, I believe youtube keeps trying to remove videos of copyrighted material but it seems that there are more going in than out. They're only creating more and more dead links on their own website this way.
Really, there are many alternatives to YouTube. Sure YT is the most popular one, but if I search on Google for a song, it's really likely that I'll find it, possibly with a download link. There are many communities dedicated to that, it's a lost war.
B.B. King is coming for a concert where I live. The cheapest tickets are at about R$150,00 which would be about U$90,00. The most expensive is at R$600,00. And hey, I wanted to go, but I'm not able to, because the prices are nearing the absurd.B.B. King is probably a great artist, but I would never pay $90 to visit his show. That's just too much indeed. Especially for someone who is almost retired.
See, this is the problem - will he ever return here? Possibly not... It's a lost opportunity.
Ah, I remember seeing that in a mini documentary. He thought of the stage and the crowd being split by an invisible wall or something, then he came up with it. The other meanings for it are very "spread".Oh yeah that's another thing I heard. So yeah, it has a lot of autobiographic elements from Roger Waters life as a musician.
Waters is a great musician, but I think his ego got bigger than him latter with Pink Floyd. Too bad they only reunited once for a Live Earth concert.
I think Absolution and Origin of Symmetry are their best albums. Go to Muse's website to listen to all of them, if you feel like. =)Listening to some Origin of Symmetry songs right now. I still don't know. Instrumentally it is alright in my opinion, but their singer... I just really don't like his voice. Bliss is probably the best song from that album in my opinion.
Bliss is one of my favourites in OoS, but I'd rather Plug In Baby. It's one of the best riffs ever, in my opinion.
And yeah, his voice is annoying sometimes. Give a listen to Micro Cuts, you WILL hate it. :P
Also I must say that I am really missing variety. Every single one of their songs sounds.. depressing imo =/
Hmm, some of their songs are really depressing (Blackout; Unintended...), but some others are full of energy (Butterflies & Hurricanes; Map of the Problematique)... Lyrically, it's pretty confusing as well... I mean, Plug In Baby talks about... ehh... I have no idea. :P
