Writing >

This was written shortly after my attending the birthday party of a woman I love very much. At the time I was in tune enough to understand just enough of her inner self to know that the birthday party she was planning for herself wouldn't be as good if it she were surprized with it two hours early.

Just days after writing this it became the first hit for "surprize party" on Google and spurred my writing on for some time. More than a year later, I look to see that it's still number one. I'm shocked, but I'm glad that somehow, and for such a long time, fate continued to agree with the importance of this strange little note.

It should have probably been spelled "surprise", but I was dumb at the time. Oh well..

There is an old expression which really does ring true; guys mean what they say, but they don't always say what they mean.

There are a few major schools of thought on the interpretation of what a guy says and what he's actually thinking or feeling. Yes, male thoughts and feelings really are different, and often a guy will fool his heart by thinking 'too much'. There are two major perspectives, in my opinion.

The Queen of Swords is a sensuous and beautiful masked avenger who battles greed and corruption in 19th Century California. Her dagger and rapier aimed at the heart of injustice, casting a long and defiant shadow over all those who terrorize the oppressed. She not only gives the vanquished hope, she makes them laugh at those who would destroy them. To do this, she must remain anonymous, hiding behind her public guise as the 'Queen of Swords'. Adventure is in the cards...

While I really like this series, it's a major uncomfortable mindfuck in many places and I don't know how strongly I could recommend it to others. I would be far more hesitant in recommending it to those not already fans of the science fiction genre at large, whose members are often far more accepting of already-difficult subjects.

Visions of a past life lead a woman to an ancient treasure, but it is also sought by others to both raise the dead and an army.

While it would be unfair to say this movie stinks, it's not great. The computer graphics used in it are uncanny and intrusive. It has action for action's sake, and where a light bubblegum movie is what it is, this movie lays it on intentionally thick, making it aggravating. Fans of its predecessor, The Mummy - (1999 movie), will find the feelings instilled by it are not reproduced in this sequel; it is an obvious money-grab.
