You have got to be fucking kidding me. There is a town in Wisconsin that is having problems with loud booms, popping noises and vibrations that simulate minor tremors. However, the town officials as well as the Geological Society are completely baffled as to what is causing this phenomena. It is so bad that people are freaked out and leaving their town. The town officials have checked all of the normal things, such as, gas leaks, sewage gas etc…all to no avail. They are unable to figure out what is making these sounds and vibrations. There is no local oil drilling causing it either.
This brings to mind an old movie about a town that disappears Phantoms. In the film there are loud noises, sirens and then perfect eerie quiet. Of course in the movie it is an evil entity that was asleep for thousands of years had woken up and wanted to be worshiped and eat people or something like that. It was based on a book by Dean Koontz. I loved the book, however the movie was second rate. Not that the people did a bad job, it is more like production didn’t really put enough into it and the director was definitely second rate. Really fucking weird though.
I really don’t understand people today. Everyone is going completely crazy. You have kids killing other kids in school with guns and knives. Terrorists killing anyone they can with home made bombs and killing themselves while they do it. That to me says they are just plain nuts. When I was a kid people were not this bad. Oh don’t get me wrong, there have always been bad people, but it is as if there is something in the water making people lose it. The little children being killed by their own parents really bothers me the most.
If I had a child I would cherish that child forever. I love children and just cannot understand what would drive any parent to hurt their babies. I guess it is just and anathema to me. Perhaps I should have gone into social services, as everyone suggested, but I didn’t want to see that stuff day in and day out. It is hard enough to see it on the news without balling my eyes out every time. I actually try not to watch too much news because of it. The news seems to be all negative lately anyway. Maybe I will just watch a movie tonight and avoid the news.
I have to go see Chronicle while it is still in the theater. I have heard that it is amazing. So, I called my mom and asked her if she wanted to do a girls night out for dinner and a movie. I also told her I was paying and I think she about fell over. I just want to show her my appreciation for all the girls time she has taken me for over the years. My mom loves science fiction as much as I do, because I get it from her, so I know that she will love this movie too.
I really hope she doesn’t have any plans made already. She and my dad live a busy life, but I just might get lucky. If not that is okay, I will just go by myself. This movie is about kids who develop or already have some kind of crazy powers. One of them is supposed to go crazy killing people and the others of course have to stop him. I have watched the trailer for this movie like a hundred times already and cannot wait to see it. I know I keep going on and on about it but I am excited.
