A princess on Mars

i just finished reading this novel.  its the book that John Carter was based on.
i have stated previously that i enjoyed John Carter. the book was SOOO much better. except the end.. the end sucked.
after reading this, i went back and watched the movie again. and now, looking at it with fresh eyes, i can see how they watered it down and 'disney-afied' it. they also added scenes that never happend, and omitted one that did (but almost every book-to-movie does that)

i was extremely disappointed that the drama between Tar Tarkas, Sola, and Sarkoja was really only hinted at in the movie. there was ALOT of history between these characters that took up a good portion of the book. im also kinda disappointed how they turned John Carter into a sort of hooligan. the John Carter in the book was an honorable man who wasnt exactly interested in wealth. the one in the movie, just seems to be a bum, who only fought for his own self preservation, and search of gold. 
obviously, thin…

what a hypocritical holiday

i dislike thanksgiving. and not because my family sucks and i hate cooking.
(my extended family sucks, my children are awesome)
was watching the peanuts thanksgiving special with my kids and it was made painfully clear what ive always subconsciously hated about thanksgiving.
so the settlers spent a year dying and suffering in the new land before the indians came and gave them food, and showed them how to grow crops and basicaly saved their sorry asses.
they extended the arms of friendship and brotherly love to these strangers in their land. and in return, we spend the next 100 years murdering them and stealing their home and heritage.
"hey thanx for the turkey and saving our lives and shit! now GET THE FUCK OFF OUR LAND BEFORE WE BLOW YOU AWAY, YOU GODLESS INJUNS"
. and to make it even more insulting, we continue to celebrate the day. that. is. seriously. fucked. up.
yeah i looooove thanksgiving ...-_-
