I just got back from seeing the film, Les Miserables, with my sister and mother.  I was blown away, but I knew I would be.  I'd never read the book, I knew nothing about the musical, but the trailer struck me.

Some time ago, I took my little sister to see the new Twilight movie, I was fully drenched in adolescent titillation and whatnot, zoned out, uncaring...and then there was this sound.  It cut through all that noise, through the teen aged angst and  struck my heart, just a sound, a wrenching melody.  I sat  up in my seat and physically moved people to see the screen.  It was the trailer for Les Miserables, Ann Hathaway was singing I Dreamed A Dream with such feeling that I found tears on my cheeks.  I simply HAD to see the film.

I drug my mother and sister along with me, and it was everything that I'd hoped.  I cried so much, and when I got home I hugged my baby girl so hard, so thankful for what I have, for my family and what luck I've enjoyed in my life.

I fully endorse this film.  If you have the money and a couple hours to kill it really is a must see!

You saw that right.  Some people believe that those innocent children died because we don't teach Bible study in public schools, because their god wasn't allowed in the building

A grown-ass man killed our innocent children because he was out of his Fucking mind, and no other reason! Don't give me that, ‘Well, you should have worshiped my god because bad things NEVER HAPPEN TO CHRISTIANS’ bull pucky! 

I know some amazingly wonderful Christians who have had cancer and beat it, and I know some amazingly wonderful Atheists and Buddhist who've had hard times and made it through them. Religion is all well and good for some, but the moment you tell me that innocent children died a horrible and frightful death because we didn't pay your particular god enough attention, is the moment I say you're fucking nuts. Bad things happen because bad people exist, good things happen because good people exist...The moment you bring mythical monsters, demons, devils, gods, fairies, witches or whatever into the equation is the moment you lost your ever-loving mind!

As a 1930s wife, I am
Very Poor (Failure)

Oh my! I am a horrible 1930's wife! Poor hubby. Actually, I'm really proud to be a modern women; not concerned with ironing every damn thing, wearing makeup all the time and all the other pointless little things a true lady does for her husband...her owner more like it. So what if I like to tell stories with too much gory detail, go without my hair and face all done up, not religious, overly talkative, don't laugh at my husband's jokes, eat too much, laugh too loud, stay up too late, share too much, hate unexpected guests, don't get dinner done on time everyday. Hey, my husband's lucky I make dinner at all when I do. I'm just as busy, just as tired. The only reason I make dinner is because I buy the groceries, so I plan the meals...Hubby and I are equal partners.

My husband has asked me a couple times what period in the past I would visit if I could, and my answer is always the same. I wouldn't go anywhere, not even a year ago. I'm a woman and a progressive thinker. I wouldn't last long in any time before 1960, and I wouldn't be happy in any time before 1990...and even then, I would miss all the progress that's been made in the last 23 years... If anything, I'd go forward in time, see the rise of human prosperity, civil rights, human rights and  pro-earth can dream.

It didn't take me long to have a trailer for Mortal Sentry once I got the hang of creating them...but I know I'm going to get better, better graphics, better music, better phrasing...just plain better. But, until better happens, here is Mortal Sentry's Official book trailer:
