It's funny how even a bad movie can cheer you up. I watched the Specials on DVD today (Had it in the collection for awhile just sitting around waiting for a day like this) and I feel a lot better than I did earlier in the day. The movie was mediocre in a lot of ways but it had its funny parts and the overall concept of a day in the life of some superheroes without any actual action or combat was interesting.

I've been playing a lot of Grand Theft Auto III, an extremely violent game, for the past few days and I wonder if that has had anything to do with my depressed mood. The vision of the world that the game presents is less than happy. There's something enticing about a game where you can run someone over, wait for the paramedics to arrive, blow them away with a shotgun and steal their ambulance to impersonate them for money though. It's an absolutely wonderful game but maybe I should cut back. On the other hand I was pretty depressed before it arrived and it at least allieviates some of my mental badheadedness when I'm actually playing it.

Decisions decisions.

There IS something to be said about a life where you don't OWE anybody anything in terms of emotion or loyalty. Freedom ain't so bad.

Am I actually successfully kidding anyone?
