Ethical Philosophy Results

I took a quiz to see which philosophical view I'm most closely aligned with. According to the results I'm 100%:

Aquinas (1225 or '27-1274)
  • All life has a purpose
  • Meeting this purpose allows one to be happy.
  • Happiness is to be found in the love of God.
  • God's grace providing entrance into heaven creates the highest form of human happiness.
  • Short of heaven, a person can achieve a more limited form of happiness through a life of virtue and friendship.
  • Morality is not determined by the arbitrary will of God.
  • Morality is derived from human nature and the activities that are objectively suited to it.
  • The difference between right and wrong can be appreciated through the use of reason and reflection.
  • Religious reflection may supplement the use of reason and reflection to determine right from wrong.
  • Societies must enact laws to ensure the correct application of moral reasoning.
  • Human nature is good because God made it good.
But after looking through the results I agree more with this one which was only 41%, go figure:

Nietzsche, Friedrich Wilhelm (1844-1900)
  • We have free will
  • There is no God
  • Social conformity should not hold us back
  • The interests of others should not restrain us
  • We should be passionate beings
  • Masculinity, strength and passion are the highest qualities in a person
  • Conventional morality is a crutch to man
Take test here if you want.

Jiang Hu

I just got done watching Jiang Hu and really liked it. Read this review which I agree with exactly.
When night falls on Hong Kong the fate of the many is decided by the few, as the gang leaders and their people scramble to make a stand. Personal vendettas collide with old fashioned honor and modern practicalities, and the reign of the city will fall to whoever’s left standing in the end...

“Jiang Hu” arrives at a time when the Hong Kong movie industry still appears fresh and invigorated in the wake of the successful “Infernal Affairs” trilogy. It tackles a good old fashioned genre, the triads movies, with new-found gusto, and it stars a host of respected Hong Kong actors.

Scary Movies

I bought The Eye 2 on DVD about a week ago and finally got around to watching it last night. The old Mongolian clerk who sold it to me recommended it over the first one, that's why I bought it. From reviews I've read online most people like The Eye better when compared to The Eye 2. It scared me and kept me entertained so I enjoyed it.

I remember the actress, Qi Shu from a Jackie Chan movie I watched years ago called Gorgeous. She's still as beautiful now as she was then. And she's a good actress as well.

This movie is about Joey Cheng(Qi),who has just had a failed suicide, she's ignored by her ex-boyfriend, and she finds out she's pregnant. To top it all of she starts to see spirits at random places. One in particular, of a young woman, keeps re-appearing. At one point she even makes eye contact with Joey and looks at Joey's pregnant belly. Who, why, and what do they have to do with her baby is what follows.

I like the fact that the directors didn't rely solely on making the audience jump. That kind of stuff scares for a second and that's it. Instead they fucked with me psychologically. I've had moments, in the shower for example, when I close my eyes to wash soap or shampoo off my face and I hear a noise and I swear that if I open them there's going to be somebody watching me, starring at me. This movie just kept bringing those feelings up. I was alone in the dark and I kept hearing things behind me or in the other room. I was freaked. I usually don't get scared with movies but this one did it to me.

Now this might bring up recollections of The Sixth Sense, but that was not scary to me. It made me jump a few times but that's it. The dead people in that movie where all bloody and wounded and shit. In this movie they're normal, just dead, starring at you and you don't know what they want. To me that's creepier for some reason.

The Blind Swordsman

I watched Zatoichi a couple days ago at the theater. I've never seen any other movie based on this character so I have nothing to compare it to. I really enjoyed. Some of the best movies I've seen lately are Asian including: Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... and Spring, Hero...shit, I had a list in my head of some of the Asian flicks I've watched recently but now they elude me. Whatever, I'll edit them in if I can recall them.

Anyways, Zatoichi is fucking cool. An old and blind masseur who travels around doing good deeds, gambling, and other stuff old blind masseurs do. A Masseur? What the hell kind of job is that for a killing machine. When would he have time to learn how to give a good massage what with all the fighting evil he does. Anyways, back to the point. He's like a Jedi knight with the force. He hears and feels all the attacks that come at him. The fighting scenes in this movie are really cool. I like the way most fights go in Samurai movies. Usually it's one great swordsman against a lot of weak opponents, typical movie scene. What I enjoy is when two great swordsman meet and you know only one will live. It's very much like a showdown in a Clint Eastwood movie. The camera switches from one fighter to the other, the music builds up, faster, shot of hilt, louder, closeup of an eye, crescendo, SILENCE!, camera jumps out as they draw their swords and just like that one of them is dead. Very cool.

Aside from the great fighting the story is also good. It follows the typical samurai plot line: samurai wandering around saves village/family/child but this one has some excellent side stories as well. There's some great comic relief, good music, and awesome visuals. A must see movie.

Also watched I'll Sleep When I'm Dead which is a good British revenge movie. Not suspense's enough, since you know everything that's happened and you just watch the characters and how they react to what you already know. But still good, great acting.

Rented A Clockwork Orange. It's ok I guess. So many people have talked that movie up to me that I think I expected too much and was let down by it. Cupric movies, to me, are to sterile. The sets look to fake, not realistic. I can't believe in his world and that just throws the entire movie off for me. I really liked the threesome scene.

Kansas City

I took a little road trip with Neon this last week. She was returning to art school in Kansas City and I tagged along to help on the two day drive. The drive itself wasn't bad, but it did get boring. Driving through the Rocky Mts. was nice, it reminded me a lot of home and growing up in Jackson, Wyoming. We made it fine, even though we almost ran out of gas once while driving through Utah.

Kansas City has the preconception of being a hick, cow, backwards kind of town, at least with me it did. But it is really a cool town. It has major sports, great art scene, great music scene, and great entertainment areas. I love the brick buildings that make up the majority of the downtown/westport areas. Brick is great when you consider all there is in Vegas is stucco. While house searching we found this great Victorian style house built in 1901. It's three stories, each floor a separate 'apartment' and we looked at the 2nd one. It would be a great place to live. Kind of dirty though, since two guys live there, but all it needs is a womans touch. Hopefully Neon will get it.

We spent one evening at a brewery in the cigar lounge. That was so much fun. We had a couple great cigars, some good beer, and great conversation. The conversation was something I'd really missed this summer. Hanging out with Neon was the greatest part of the trip. I'm greedy, so having her all to myself was perfect.

I can't wait to go back.

Broken Thumb

The Olympic Basketball team takes another hit. A broken thumb. Iverson, arguably their best player, has a broken thumb. God hates them, he really does. First the scared pussies don't go to Athens, then their replacments are only there because of their name not the need for specific players, and now a broken fucking thumb. Hopefully we'll beat Greece today.

Under Construction

Well, I finally got tired of my template. It was way to bloated and full of useless shit. I built it by trial and error and it felt like it was hammered by force to do something it wasn't meant to do. It had so many hacks and redundant code that it's amazing it worked as well as it did. So I'm starting one from the bottom up. A nice fresh start. Until then, I'll use this template provided by Blogger.

Drinking Story

I have a lot to tell since I've been in Kansas City for the last week or so, but all I'm going to talk about right now is what's going on at the moment. Corpus and I went drinking at the Suncoast Casino which I get free drink tickets from a friend at the sports book. We ordered Singapore Slings, and after every SS we had a shot of Patron Silver Tequila. So we had a great buzz going. Then a couple of his friends from high school joined us and that's when the fun started. Corpus had a couple tequila shots really quickly, by this time we'd move up to Anejo instead of Silver. As I asked him how his tequila was he sprayed it out onto his shirt, he stood up and headed to the bathroom but first got some on the guy sitting behind him, a bartender who was drinking after his shift. All in all very funny. To watch not to experience. I followed him to the bathroom where some fucker was making fun of him, his shirt covered in vomit. When we made it back to the table the girls, who'd names I don't remember, said that we had to leave since he was so drunk, bar policy i guess. So as we were leaving I notice they were sitting with the bartender he'd splattered, kind of funny, but anyways we got home ok. He hit the bong a little and we decided to go eat, we ended up at Jack in the Box. Got some tacos, not bad. What was great was the car behind us had some girls in it. One of them, Shirley, came up to our window and talked with us while we waited. She was way drunk off tequila just like us, which at the moment was great, but she got distracted by the guy working the window...Oh well, slut. Anyways not a bad night...I'll get to Kansas City in the next post, it was great.

Went to Huntington Beach a few days ago. Left early and got back to Vegas really late. Just Neon and me. It was a lot of fun, playing around in the waves and laying on the blanket together. I really needed that time together. We got lost a couple times on the way back, since I didn't print out the directions on how to get back. You'd think it would be as easy as doing the opposite of what you did on the way there, but the freeways in California don't seem to work that way. It was a great day. We're going to Kansas City in a couple days, that should be great fun as well.

I went to a promo of Without a Paddle which is funny, but a little preachy in parts when it tries to get a message across. Goddamn is Seth Green short.

Other movies I've seen lately but don't think I've mentioned:
Napoleon Dynamite - Really funny movie, must see
I, Robot - Yes it is Will Smith but he's not that bad, enjoyed more than Spiderman 2
The Village - sucked, bad, the twist was lame and easy to figure out, not scary, waste of good actors
Catwoman - enjoyed Halle Berry, movie kind of dumb, her villain is an ex model how Stripperella is that
Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle - Very Very Funny, I laughed the entire movie, must see if you enjoyed Road Trip, Eurotrip, American Pie, etc.
Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy - unh, funny in parts, but overall forgettable

That's all I can remember. Well I'm off to work.
