don't mess with the family!!!!!!

I watched all The Godfather movies for the first time this weekend and I decided that I would like to be a gangster for a week. I'd handle a lot of business that needs to be handled. The only problem is that I don't have any enemies (that I know of), so I'd have to make some enemies. I'd go out to a club and start a fight and be carried out by the bouncers screaming, "DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM???? DO YOU KNOW WHO THE F--K I AM???? YER' DONE FOR! ITS CURTAINS!!!!!"

Anyways, if you'd like to be enemies with me, then we can coordinate a revenge of some sort, in which I have you "dealt with". I'll only be gangsta for a week, so you won't have much time to retaliate back to me. I'd appreciate it if you didn't. I'm a really nice guy and I'm not cut out for this gangster shit. I'd much rather sing opera in Sicily.

I'd need a more gangster name. My last name, Ledbetter, sounds too friendly. There's nothing intimidating about that name. It doesn't say, "I'll shoot you if you f--k with my family." It says, "Lets read books together."

I was thinking of taking the name of the city I grew up in, like Vito Coleone did in The Godfather. I'm from Woodbridge, Virginia and Quincy Woodbridge doesn't sound as hardcore as Vito Coleone. I was thinking of using my middle name as my first name, thus making it Gerard Woodbridge, but that doesn't roll of the tongue very well.

I think I'm gonna give up on my dreams to be a gangster. I'll stick to be polite and law abiding.

NOTE: IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THE MOVIE CLOVERFIELD AND ACTUALLY WANT TO SEE IT, THEN DO NOT READ AHEAD. THERE IS A SLIGHT SPOILER IN THESE FINAL PARAGRAPHS.

I watched the movie Cloverfield over the weekend and when I went into it I didn't know what it was about. The last time I went to a movie without knowing what it was about was I Am Legend. It turns out that I Am Legend circled around two of my three phobias: Solitude and Zombies.

Before Cloverfield started, I thought it would be really funny if it circled around my third phobia....spiders. Guess what MySpace Cadets....the Cloverfield monster was a giant spider-like creature who gave birth to smaller (but still gigantic) alien spiders.

The scene when the main characters were in the subway tunnels scared the living shit outta me. I'm serious. I was screaming and squirming in my seat. I screamed, ladies and gentleman.

Hence Cloverfield, much like I Am Legend, is an outstanding movie that I have sworn never to watch again.

the end.
