Facebook breaks it down

Ok, so most of us use Facebook. It overtook mySpace for teenagers, and professionally some would say it left LinkedIn waiting in the shadows, but perhaps that was the problem. Do young professionals want to share pictures of last nights drunken antics with a world of potential San Fransisco Bay employers?

Zuckerberg to the rescue. Yesterday, Tech Crunch reported that Facebook will allow you to group your friends, so different groups will get different info. Now those old high school buddies that you added so not to offend, won't have the same access as your co-workers you wish to share every second of your life with.

The Facebook phenomena took over. It wasn't sudden, but as soon as they opened the gates of their site to the non-college world, every week has seen a change. Almost every time I log in, something has changed, and to be honest, I don't like it. I am not sure why we're compelled to put our lives online, but this small change could make the world of difference.

Right to the Point

It's been a while since I have seen some true honesty in film. Directors shoot for the stars, trying to make an epic movie that will outlive the test of time. Sometimes Hollywood tries too hard, nut Michael Davis got this one just right.

Shoot 'Em Up has no realy plot or premise, but it doesn't waste much time pretending to either. It's a movie of gunshots, violence with a damn good soundtrack, and once you have seen this film, you'll never look at a carrot in the same way again!

"Do we really suck, or is this guy really this good?"

In enjoy the movies, but all too often I leave the theater wishing I could get those two hours back. This time I left wishing I could go back right in there. This film is honest, from the title down. It's about shooting.

If you want an intellectual challenge or food for thought, forget it, this movie won't satisfy you, but if you want to feed the testosterone with blood, violence and heavy metal... book a ticket right now!
