High school movies

Here is a blast from the past!

Bye Bye Wires!!!

I just riped out 42 years of wiring in my car. Talk about a mess. I am very close to getting the inside of the car finished. I just need to get it painted. Hopefully I will have the money next week.

My Dad gave me a ticket to the BYU Utah game last week. It's just so nice to let Utah think they had the game won 10 to 9 only to be upset in the last seconds for a second time in a row. BYU 17 Utah 10.

So I've been hearing a lot of comments on this movie the Golden Compass. I'm just going to go see and try to understand it. I can understand why people are Atheist just as I can understand why people believe in God. It's what I believe is what is important to me. We all have the right to believe in what we want to. If this movie is attacking religion just remember how many Religious movies we love that attack Atheism. I'm trying not to be hypocritical.

What happened to good cartoons?

I was listening to my I Tunes and I realized I had a couple of Cartoon TV show themes from when I was growing up. The Cartoons of my generation are so much better than all of the half American half Anime animation they have now. Remember Duck Tales, Tales spin, Gummy Bears, and Chip and Dale's Rescue Rangers. I miss those shows. They also had the best opening theme song. Like this song featuring The Jets. Enjoy as you did when you were young.

God and Science

Some scientist say it is possible that there is intelligent life out there. I believe there is too. Why is it so hard to believe that God is real. That he lives somewhere. That he has the ability to Govern a planet and it's inhabitants the same way we govern our own children. He gives us rules to obey for our own good and consequences that follow. It is such a simple concept yet there are so many that make it so complicated religiously and scientifically.

They believe we can clone or create a human but God could not have done the same to us right? What if you said that God is that intelligent life out there and he through studies learned to create life. He learned to re-arrange or organize mater and created this planet. Isn't that the goal of scientist now. To learn how our Earth was created. Why do we even need to know that? Is it so see where we are going? What might happen to us? What drives a scientist if we do not exist after this life?

Many religions believe that God is invisible, he has no shape, he is not tangible. I can see why science has a hard time with this concept. It makes no sense to me either. Why does God have to be this big giant blob in the sky? Why can't he be something you can touch and see? Why shouldn't we become like him?

God made his son Jesus like him. He showed God like abilities. We say we can alter genetics. We can make someone less prone to diseases and have the ability to increase their IQ. Why is it so difficult to believe God could create a being like this. Sure Jesus died but he was risen again. The dead are not dead and maybe that is something that prevents people from believing.

These are just some questions I have. It is not to offend anyone. I try to be open minded and if anyone has any questions to me I would be happy to answer them.

Settling Down

The last two months have been really hectic. We spent a good deal of our time looking for an apartment. We were lucky to receive accommodations at the McKinlays house for a couple weeks. We found a nice little upstairs apartment in a four-plex located in down town Provo. It's not bad. We have a great next door neighbor named Ehren. He is an Art Critic for In Utah This Week. He is very talkative and We always enjoy his company.

I have also decided to rip apart our 1965 beetle. So far I've welded in new floor pans, bought a nice interior kit and many other parts. The next step is to put the car back together so I can get the inside painted. Mandi and I have cleaned it up quite a bit but there is much more to do.

With all of this going on I have managed to continue working with Russell on his film. The process is slow but moving. I have also found time to write a script of my own. I am very excited about this story and hope to shoot it as a short for practice. In the future I will hire a writer that can help me with wording everything right.

Well until next time. Ta ta!
