How To: Drink

                   So, have you ever been at a party, and seen a drunk bastard barf on the couch, then sleep on the table? You hate that guy, don't you? Well, I'm going to tell you how to prevent being that guy. Also, Oktoberfest's coming, you're going to want to enjoy it. Of course, everybody knows what their limit is, but you can actually increase it by following these few tips. 

This takes training!

                   First of all, eat a small snack first, and drink some water. I know, you're going to get full if you eat that before drinking, but it's better than drinking on an empty (and dehydrated) stomach. Some people grab bread, spread a shitton of butter on it and eat it. The grease will prevent the alcohol from entering your bloodstream so quickly.

Alcohol + Bread + Butter equals FUN!

                    The water rule doesn't apply just once. For every bottle of beer you drink, drink a glass of water. That way, the density of the alcohol will be less. Just by doing this, you can get another beer into your system. Also, drink slowly. There are guys who love to chug their drinks, but trust me, it's not the way to go. You'll seriously screw yourself up like that, quicker, and with less. 

After a few chugs, you look like this.

                     Also, keep eating. The food will prevent alcohol from entering into the bloodstream that quickly. So, what happens if you go over the limit, especially with all these tips? Well, you're not going to be as piss-drunk as a binge drinker. Also, drink a lot of water the next day. It's the only way a hangover will go. 

Silly dog, beer is for kids!

Movie Review: Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes

               All right, so I'm going to try to post more frequently again. So, saturday, I went to see the Planet Of The Apes prequel. I thought it would be all right in an X-Men First Class kind of all right, but by the time I left my theater, I had my mind literally BLOWN. Why?

                First of all, the chimp, Caesar (Andy Serkis) steals the show. He has an almost human face, and is born with this increased intelligence he had when his mother gave birth to him (she was given the "cure to Alzheimer's"). He had high intelligence, higher than humans. The impressive thing is how even Andy Serkis's facial expressions were recorded, so you could see the human emotions one would have on the chimp. 

                 Also, the other monkeys were great. I was actually impressed when I heard that no monkeys were used on the film, just CGI. You could've sworn they were real. Most of the communication on the film is actually non-verbal, but you see how the monkeys and humans are not so different. You can notice how the apes interact with their environment, and you realize that maybe they're not just stupid animals after all. 

                The humans were kind of boring in this film. You had good actors like James Franco, but the human cast seemed to be there to just push the story. Sure, they did some fine acting, but it was a lot more dull than the animal cast. 

                 The other great thing is the plot. You can't really imagine how a bunch of apes could take over a huge city, but once you see the plot, you actually appreciate it. Also, the fight scene complemented the movie well, instead of ruining it, like it has other films. The ending also leaves a lot of open questions, which gives a great foundation for one or a bunch of sequels. The film has been compared to Batman Begins, as it reboots a franchise in a more modern way, and in fact, I think it did a better job. I highly recommend seeing this film before the theaters take it out. It will give you a lot to ponder on, and your mind will be blown.

One Of The Darkest Of Days...

                 I know I haven't written in a long time, but today really deserves it. So today, fucking drug dealers decided to crush whatever little's left of the morale of the good people of Monterrey, by burning a casino, where more than 50 people have already been counted as deceased, while the double is expected to have actually died. A few grenades ignited the place. I was at the gym, and I could literally see the combination of the building's and the peoples' ashes. This is one of the worst tragedies of Mexican history, damn drug dealers can't be called that anymore, they're terrorists now. I'm a skeptic, but damn it, if there's one thing worth praying for, it's peace. Everybody over here wants this to end, and soon. I don't want to raise my children in a city full of thieves and scumbags, I don't want them growing up surrounded by the scourge and vermin of the world, and I think I speak for all of Monterrey when I say this. We want peace, and we want it now, damn it!

Movie Review: Captain America, The First Avenger


                         So, you may be thinking, "Damn it, another Avenger?" Well, trust me. This movie's better than some of the other films from the series. Chris Evans, who used to play the Human Torch, is Captain Rogers, also known as America. He does these black-ops like missions and has a love interest, Peggy Carter, played by Hayley Atwell. Other actors are Hugo Weaving as Red Skull, Tommy Lee Jones as a crappy old drill sargeant, and Samuel Jackson as Nick Fury. The movie's also got a cool retro vibe to it, sort of like Bioshock, but without all the splicers and sh*t. If you miss this movie, it's a MUST RENT.

The High School Induction

                 What's up guys, so it's been a while since I posted. I've been busy doing a few errands. So, yesterday, I had the induction to the high school courses, and damn it, it was awesome. When I got there, I got a bit nervous, I didn't really know anyone there. So I walked to my classroom, and there, I recognized a friend from school. I calmed down a bit, and started watching around. Everybody seemed OK. So, after that, we went to a small conference, where we were explained the dynamics of the place, and then we went to take a picture of the generation. We're 535 students, and trust me, it's kind of hard to organize that many guys by height. So we took a picture, got some refreshment, and uh, that was it. But really, the people were awesome, so, yeah, it's gonna be some awesome three years.

Casey Anthony: The Aftermath

              All right, so you'd be thinking that Casey would have it rough after having been declared innocent, what with jail taking its toll on you and that stuff, right? Well, yeah, she's going to get some therapy, as her mental health's been declining a bit. Oh yeah, she's also dating Jesse James. The guy recently tweeted it, and got a lot of hate mail. She met him while seeing some stuff for a reality show they're going to do about her. Oh yeah, she can get paid millions for that. 

              She also wrote a book for which she's being offered a million bucks. So, yeah, she went free and she's got her future assured. Well, that's not all. Casey has been offered half a million to pose nude for Hustler magazine. So, yeah. If she really killed her own daughter, she must be killing herself by now. Oh wait, the mental health issues. Well, uh, we can only hope for divine intervention or something. I'm a skeptic though, so... damn it Casey!
