Take the Media Bowling, take them Bowling...

Finally went to see Bowling for Columbine the other night. It's worth seeing, but it's not what I expected. This movie is being advertised as though it's all about Gun Control...which it really isn't. It's more a criticisim of the media in America, and of the scare tactics they use. And, in light of recent events like this, this, this, or this one (a classic), I think that's a point worth making.

On a different note, the movie has convinced me to go back to film school. I'm trying to get a Stafford Loan to pay the money I owe the university, which if you know the story at all is kind of fun because I will be turning my enemies against each other. Wish me luck.

Oh, and God Bless the people of Canada.
