Dear Twitterverse and Social Media Folks,

I just discovered a glaring, erroneous problem. When I saw it, I was shocked.

Keith David only has 6130 followers.

6130?! That’s it?!

Do people not know who this guy is?

First off, he has one of the most awesomest voices this side of James Earl Jones. I first acknowledged his awesomeness when he voiced Goliath on the animated TV series “Gargoyles”. He does tons of voice work. You’ve probably heard and wondered, “Who is that awesome voice actor?” Now you know! He also did Mister Rodger’s Neighborhood, so ya know he’s good.

He has also been in some classic flicks! John Carpenter’s The Thing, They Live!, Road House, Always, The Puppet Masters, The Quick and the Dead, Volcano, Armageddon, There’s Something About Mary, Pitch Black, Chronicles of Riddick, and butt-load more. Well, not all “classics”, but I liked them!

He can also sing! With a voice like his, ya gotta figure he can sing.

So, if you aren’t following Keith David, you are a bad, bad person.

Just sayin’.

Sincerely,

Following Keith David

 

Dear Sports Fans,

First off, I’m not a die-hard sports nut. Being Canadian, by law, I have to support my local hockey team, which I do, especially my nephews’ teams. Come NHL finals, I support the Ottawa Senators. But since I’ve been around longer than the Sens, I cheer on (in this order), Montreal Canadiens, any other Canadian team, and then, the Toronto Maple Leafs. I know many people who cheer on other non-Canadian teams, which is totally cool. I even support their teams if all my teams are gone, because I’m there for my pals.

But here’s what really gets my metaphoric goat, “spite supporters”.

Who are “spite supporters” you may ask? They are people who cheer for a team because they either hate someone on the other team, or hate the team for whatever reasons. For example; I knew a Maple Leafs’ fan that cheered on any other team that played against the Ottawa Senators. I didn’t really care who he cheered for, what he was doing seemed kinda childish, petty, and spiteful. I saw this again as the Montreal Canadiens played through the playoffs. But in that case, I tend to think it has more to do with the anti-french sentiment that many people seem to have, which is sad, stupid, and the subject of another blog.

In conclusion, support who you want, but don’t be a little bitch about it.

Sincerely,

Enjoyer of Hockey since the 70’s

 

Dear Smart People,

First off, congrats on getting an education, especially one that deals with people’s medical and health issues. Having tat training and knowledge is a huge responsibility. Not only do you have to know your stuff, but you also have to make sure the things you say don’t make you look like an arrogant jackass.

The medical and health professionals I’ve dealt with in my life, the really good ones, were able to tell me what was wrong, what I needed to do, and any other medical and health information without talking down to me, or making feel stupid. Perhaps most importantly, whenever I asked a question regardless of how dumb or valid it might have been, they answered it satisfactorily.

(sidebar: Satisfactorily is an actual word! I guess, because WordPress didn’t try to correct me. And I spelled it right first shot! Booya!)

Ever heard the saying “a little knowledge can cause a lot of damage?” I might have just made it up, but the point is, when some become knowledgeable in some area, they think they know everything. They also think that anyone else’s thoughts and opinions are worthless. These same people also don’t mind reminding people of their stupidity and lack of knowledge.

So while i salute their educational goals being achieved, I’d just like to remind them that, yes, you know what you are talking about. But instead of belittling others for speaking their minds, how about showing some of that responsibility you’re have supposed to have learned as well and treat people fairly and with some frickin’ respect.

Start with that, then blow us away with your knowledge, and we’re less likely to think of you as a dick.

Sincerely,

Us Stupid People

 

Dear Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin,

Wasn’t one “Independence Day” Movie enough?

Apparently not, because you guys are looking to make not one but two sequels!

Last time I checked, no one was asking for sequels. While Emmerich has been on a roll with his disaster movies (Day After Tomorrow, 2012, White House Down), and Devlin has been… busy, I’m sure, can’t you guys, between the two of you, come up with something else?!

And no, I don’t mean more Stargate movies! That subject has been done to death on TV, and quite well, from what I’ve heard. Why do anything more? You guys pissed because you didn’t hold on to the rights?

In short, don’t rehash stuff no one wants.Why don’t you see if Warner Brothers needs some help with their DC movie franchises. They need all the help they can get.

Sincerely,

Movie Buff

 

Dear Ontario Political Parties,

I have already determined, between the Liberal, the Progressive Conservatives (PC), and the New Democratic Party (NDP, who I am going to vote for, and it isn’t the PC party.

Wanna know how I came to this conclusion? It was YouTube.

When trying to watch the high-larious Honest Trailers made by Screen Junkies, I would get commercials. With the Liberals and NDP commercials, I could skip them and get right to my happy fun time.

But the PC commercials? Nope! No skipping for you! I had to sit there more than once, listening to Tim Hudak talk about his Million Job Plan. Which turned out to be bullshit, due to a miscalculation in the number crunching, so instead of million jobs, it was actually like 75,000 to 100,000. Plus, he comes across as that always-right kid in class, who had that “I’m all smart and the teach loves me” look on his face. If I was totally new to the election process, and knew nothing about the three candidates, I still wouldn’t vote for that lil twit.

Sincerely,

Those Honest Trailers are awesome! My favs are the Walking Dead and Godzilla 1998! High-Larious!
