The World's Greatest Excuse and Things that Came with It


For some, the world is just a span of disappointments since they have magnified their efforts and expectations. It is like as if the world will simply conform with whatever they wanted or whatever suits their needs. Even in the short span of my imaginary existence, it is obvious that the world does not play this kind of game, but the world simply revolves around its axis and follow its preference whether we like it or not.

So after going through A Series of Unfortunate Events, John has shared me two of the things he has gone trough the week. And borrowing Lemony Snicket's voice: "It is my sad duty to write down these unpleasant tales, but there is nothing stopping you from [leaving this blog] at once and reading something happy, if you prefer that sort of thing."

The World's Greatest Excuse For A Sequel:

Having been disappointed by the third movie, Rise of the Lycans, John has expected that the mythology of the series will be incorporated with Underworld: Awakening. But after watching the movie my friend's hope for a very good sequel was shattered to pieces. It was really disappointing that the mythology was barely touched in this one. John would have wanted to know what happened to the third Vampire elder having a slumber under a vault. Instead we see Selene battling over survival against humans. Pity: now John is not sure if he's going to wait for the next movie in the arc or not.

The World's Greatest Excuse For Waiting Too Long:

There is no doubt that the Game of Thrones series is a spectacular one. John was once a skeptic of the books when the first one got out years ago. He was having doubts to buy them as evidenced by the fact that he has no copies of these books in his own library. He thought he had already found it in Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time, but after watching the whole first season of the TV series he was sold: The Song of Ice and Fire is much better. Itching to buy the books, he was saddened to wait before he could do so since it is not yet in the priority list of expenses. Add up to this the fact that he has to wait many more months to watch for the TV series' second season, it felt like December 21, 2012 apocalypse has come earlier.

Whew... all the negative auras. When will they go away. I was hoping to see my friend focus on the bright side, but I just can't force him if he doesn't want to.
