TAKEN, bad and YUCKY

Im so not into rating movies etc, although Im so into watching them.. to the degree that I've found a hard time looking at a movie that I haven't watched on the 15 hours flight!!

I have watched TAKEN last Tuesday, and it was one of the movies I REALLY enjoyed. It made me feel bad for watching 'Wanted' in the cinema. I thought this one is just awesome and there is no comparison between the two. However, for those who have watched it.. did you notice anything shocking somewhere in the middle?

And for those who didn't.. Im not sure whether to say you should!

Although it was one of the best movies I've seen this year, I felt shocked from one of the scenes! They had this 'Qatari' car's plate and they intended to show it more than 10 times. The word 'Qatar' was actually written in Arabic, and the numbers too.. They also used the arabic language in some parts but it was obvious that this has been previously taped. By using the word 'shocked' and disgusted Im sure you'd know by now that the whole thing was representing something BAD and yucky. There's no doubt about that..

It is sad to see such a thing, I lost focus when I saw it.. I didn't even care about what was happening at the end. One thing was on my mind.. How dare they, what a shame!

photo albums

I went to print some digital photos in one of the kiosks today, it was very convenient.. cheap and easy to use. And because I hate to wait I used the 'print now' ones.. the quality was ok and not bad at all!

But I just can't stop wondering - in such a virtual world, where digital cameras are replacing the old ones - and people seem to count on having photos just stored on their PCs and sometimes backed up.. how would the babies of today feel years from now about their 'Baby photo albums'.. would they be satisfied with virtual photo albums?

I think it's pretty sad.. I wouldn't want this to happen to my kids, it's like not having something touched... something REAL.

Im seeing it happening everywhere.. parents are just getting lazy and they're counting more and more on those digital photos! There are more photos taken when it's digital - I agree, it costs nothing really to take photos, and I agree on the fact that this way people can actually chose which ones to print, but I wouldn't say that this can in any way replace the real photo albums..

And it's just the same for digital frames.. they will in no way replace the normal frames!

The future of Tomorrow

'When we fail to measure up to a stated vision, as it inevitable will at times, we should not despair. Rather let us take up the challenge together to bring our reality closer to our vision.

The future we will experience tomorrow is created one step at a time today.'

Taken from the Whole Foods Market website- written in their 'Declaration of Interdependence', after the mini scandal of their founder and CEO.
