I don't know if it was the hundreds of girls screaming every time Edward, (The Lead Vampire Guy) came onto the screen; or perhaps it was the fact that I was so ready for a new and exciting movie; either way, Twilight Delivered. The lamps dimmed and the stage was set. First, we were greeted with the new trailer for J.J. Abrams Star Trek. This of course was incredible. After a few flashing trailers, the lights went out completely and the tumult of females screaming filled the cramped and crowded theater. It was like Star Wars, or Lord of the Rings but hundred times more energetic.
At first, I didn't understand the infatuation. I didn't understand why this story was so compelling. I still don't but apparently, Edward is such a seductive character he somehow leapt off the page and had come to rest in the heart of every bubbling little girl. In short, it was an experience. I know this is a little late as the movie has been out for a while, but I am entering finals and haven't had time.
Interesting Perspective on the new law reguarding cell phone use in cars.
However much I agree with the legislation prohibiting talking cell phones as well as texting during the process of driving, does it not infringe on our ability as Americans to be free. The impetus for this legislation was that talking on cell phones and texting while driving endangered others and was an undue distraction to drivers. Well…I agree. But so is eating, watching your children in the back seat, putting on makeup, listening to the radio, seeing a hot girl on the side of the road, trying to find the street you need to turn on, turning on the air conditioner, talking to someone in the front seat, talking to someone in the back seat, looking at a hot girl on the side of the road, looking in the rear view mirror, looking at anything but the road in front of you, and most importantly looking at a hot girl on the side of the road. So where do legislators draw the line inhibiting our freedom as Americans. Does the legislation stop with cell phones? Or next will we not be able to put on makeup, have anyone else in the car, look at hot girls on the side of the road, make sure our children are safe in the back seat, try to find where we are going, look in the rear view mirror, listen to the radio and my personal favorite, look at a hot girl on the side of the road? When will the insanity end? When will the government figure out that more regulation is bad? People can govern themselves. If they can’t, then they will die for it. Or they will kill for it. The response: the regulation needs to come in punishment. If the punishment for killing someone in a car because you were not using a blue tooth was say, 25 to life, people would go buy “blueteeth.” Negligence is the trumpet for suing doctors, why not drivers. Figure it out. No legislation. WE don’t need a big brother, we need our freedom.
Sean has just graduated from a prestigious college known as California Baptist University. He enjoys long walks on the beach, the soulful sound of the Backstreet Boys, and martinis shaken...Not stirred. Sean is an aspiring author having completed his first novel: The Last Son Volume I.
