I just finished watching Angeline Jolie’s movie Unbroken about Louis “Louie” Zamperini who was always in trouble, but with the help of his older brother, he turns his life around and channels his energy into running, later qualifying for the 1936 Olympics. When World War II breaks out, Louie enlists in the military. After his plane crashes in the Pacific, he survives an incredible 47 days adrift in a raft, until his capture by the Japanese navy. Sent to a POW camp, Louie becomes the favorite target of a particularly cruel prison commander.
His whole story is about surviving the elements and torture camps. He never knew why he his life was spared but he continued to fight on even though his future looked bleak throughout the movie.
As he eloquently put it, “if I could take it, I can make it.”
Spoiler Alert – He survives dedicating his life to religion and being an inspiration to other people.
This brings me to the question:
Why are here? What are we meant to do with our lives?
I mean you’ve probably asked these questions before to yourself but it fucking bugs me when I see my friends and co workers that do not want to do anything with their lives because they are too scared or they don’t believe in themselves.
We were not meant to live dull normal lives. We all have the potential to live extraordinary lives with purpose.
So, I’ll ask it again,
Why are you here?
I’m here to tell stories…
THE HATED ONES: RUNNING WITH THE HUNTED BY RYAN FU
There is always been two sides to every story but usually when it comes to Hollywood, the media only shows one side of the story. The Hated Ones by new writer, Ryan Fu, shows the other side of the Hollywood scene. The entertainment industry is worth billions of dollars, which people want protect their valuable image but they can’t control the public, who want to know what they are doing in their daily lives. In comes the wolves of Hollywood, the paparazzi, who are willing to do anything to get that coveted shot that might be worth thousands of dollars. The Hated Ones is a collection of stories and poems from celebrity photojournalist, Ryan Fu, who was been in the industry for the last ten years. It’s a brand new perspective from the other side of the lens showing a different light to the entertainment industry. The story follows Ryan from his rough upbringing in the streets of Los Angeles to his time in the military fighting terrorists, then finally hitting the streets of Hollywood hunting world famous celebrities.
A wise person once said the purpose of life is to experience everything to in order to gain knowledge because knowledge is power.

According, to CNN, Two years after she underwent a double mastectomy to cut her cancer risk, actress and U.N. envoy Angelina Jolie has had surgery to remove her ovaries and fallopian tubes.
Jolie, 39, carries a mutation of the BRCA1 gene, which sharply increases her risk of developing breast cancer and ovarian cancer. Her mother was diagnosed with the latter at age 49 and died seven years later.
But a blood test that revealed worrying markers accelerated the process, the Hollywood star said. Her doctor told her he wanted her to see a surgeon immediately to check her ovaries.
What are your thoughts on her decision? Would you do the same thing if you were in the same position?

TMZ has learned … Ford was piloting what appears to be a vintage 2-seater fighter plane Thursday … when something went wrong and he crashed into Penmar golf course in Venice, CA.
We’re told Ford suffered multiple gashes to his head and was bleeding. Two doctors who happened to be at the golf course rushed over to treat the actor.
Emergency personnel arrived to the scene a short time later. Ford was transported to a nearby hospital.
72-year-old Ford is a longtime aviator — piloting planes and helicopters — and has crashed multiple times in the past.
We are thankful that he survived the crash but this is another example about how this life is short and people should stop caring about useless bullshit and start living their lives because you never know when it’s going to end. So, be thankful for every minute you’re living but make sure you’re doing what you love to do just like Mr. Ford.
Here is a life changing footage of a Hawaiian plane crash inside the small plane before the final moments.

Scarlett Johansson stars in Lucy, an action-thriller that tracks a woman that gets accidentally caught in a dark deal, who turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic. I actually saw this film last weekend but I just finally had the time to write a review on it, but basically I thought it was an enjoyable film with good performances by Scarlett Johansson and Morgan Freeman but some of it seemed pretty unrealistic, but what do you expect from watching a science fiction movie. It did have great philosophical ideas like what if you had the power to know everything? Would you try to know everything or would you be too scared of it?
After Scarlett becomes a drug mule for the mob, she winds up with superpowers after an experimental drug called CPH4 overloads her brain. She begins to start using more and more of brain, gaining more knowledge and superhuman capabilities. Since, basically she is one of her kind, she needs the help of Morgan Freeman because he is the best known for his brain research. Scarlett tells him that she gained the ability to access more parts of her brain but she fears that she has a limited time on her hands, so she needs guidance from him on what to do? Morgan honestly tells her that she should try to learn everything she can and pass it on to the next generation because Morgan believes that is the greatest gift that humans can give to one another, which I totally agree with because as I always say, “Knowledge is Power.”
She gets more of the experimental drug and takes it all at once like some college sorority chick after finals. She begins to transform and extract vast information like a super computer. As she gets closer to 100% brain capacity she begins to travel through time and space, moving into the past and the future, stopping and reversing as she wishes. When she hits her peak, she vaporizes into thin air leaving only her clothes and a reminder of what she learned on a USB storage stick to give to Morgan Freeman.
MONTY PYTHON’S THE MEANING OF LIFE – 30TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION (BLU-RAY + DIGITAL COPY + ULTRAVIOLET)
Once again, I totally enjoyed the movie, which I thought Scarlett and Morgan did a terrific job but some of it seemed pretty unrealistic but what do you expect when you’re talking about something nobody has ever really experienced before. Which lead me to this question? What if you did have the power to know everything? What would you do with it? Also, the movie brought up interesting questions about the human race as such as what we’ve done the last 2 billion years. We’ve accomplished a lot but are we not realizing our full potential? We still act like animals, fighting among ourselves for meaningless things. It just makes you think, what are you here for in life? Are you just here just to go to school, get a job, get married have children, pay a mortgage then die? Or are you here on Earth in this Universe to do something more in your life? These are the questions you have to ask yourself or just bask in the glory of ignorance and just enjoy the ride.
Mind over matter,
Is that not the saying?
I’m trying to get this,
Right now I’m lonely,
And everything hurts,
My mind takes the matter,
Can’t get any worse.
The matter goes through me,
My bones start to shiver,
My mind takes more matter,
And I start to quiver.
That sadness I’m feeling,is slipping away…
Along with my mind, in the matter..
I think I now get this.
It’s easy to see,
My mind is against me,
It won’t set me free.
So the matter- it helps me,
It makes me feel whole,
My constant delusions,
are taking their toll.
On my mind.
A few years ago, I did a personality test and found myself in the ENFP box – along with Robin Williams.
All my coworkers were with President Obama and Oprah, so they laughed at me. I didn’t get why? I was with one of my heroes, so I was honoured.
When I heard about his death, I wrote this poem.
I wish he was still here. Yup.
