Today started off pretty lame for me. I was supposed to get up early morning to take a nice long run, but instead I woke up late, and the day's already halfway over. So in observance of Global Running Day, I decided to get the cardio going by other means: by putting on all the horror classics involving running.
There's a ton of horror movies involving the simple act of running for dear life, so horror fans, I suggest to you the classics of the late 70's to the horror movies of today. Take your pick! My personal favorites and choices are The The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Scream (all of the movies and show), and 28 Weeks Later.
Ahh... I feel like I really burned a lot off, and now I'm hungry. Well, wouldn't you know it, it's National Hunger Awareness day. I find it funny; all this exercise and I've defeated the purpose.
You know what else I find funny? I'm glad I live in a country where hunger isn't as much of a problem, and I'm very surprised that we throw most of it away and not give it those in need.
My message to you, dear reader; be involved with your community, consider those less fortunate, try donating to your local food bank, and you might be saving a life. Also, I would really like for you to check out these awesome food-related horror films: The Stuff, Thinner, Troll 2
And last but not least, it's Drive-In Movie Day! In celebration of the opening of the first patented drive-in movie theater, I share with you a small story about my last time at one.
I was about four when this movie, Mortal Kombat, came out. My family went to see it at the drive-in. I didn't like it, but I had a ton of food hidden on me. And believe it or not, this was the start of my love for VS. fighting video games. The End.
Yeah, not the most exciting, but whatever. I did meet the creator, Ed Boon, in Las Vegas, but it was brief encounter.
