Ok, so I've had not-so-few comments on the movie I once picked to show people called Very Bad Things.

I'm not going to try and argue the finer points of this film, mostly because I am tired, it's a Monday, and I know David would tear me a new one...electronically-speaking, that is.

I WILL say this, though: I only received three REAL suggestions for a first-date movie, and that's kinda sad. I thought people read my blog. Shit, even KARLYN posted something. (Of course, she posted so she could rip on me and make me cry, but still...)

Coming tomorrow (work-willing): The report of the Witnesses of Jehovah that came to my house on Saturday, per my invitation.

An alternative theory is that people do read your blog, but that those people can't get first dates. The advantages of this interpretation are that (1) you have readers and (2) since you apparently have a first date of some sort, you're better than they are.

I do read your blog. And it makes me sound like a loser but I didn't comment because I don't exactly have a plethora of first dates to call experience from. Go see something you think you both will enjoy. Go see something you can discuss if you think she's into that sort of thing. Or go see something silly and just enjoy each other's company.

As for Very Bad Things...whatever. It was four years ago. We were all clamoring for attention and did things that we realized were stupid or silly in retrospect for a variety of reasons. I don't define my view of Jason by one movie that he picked to show once.

I applaud your blog, former JW member speaks out.

The core dogma of the Watchtower organization is that Jesus had his second coming 'invisibly' in the year 1914.Their entire doctrinal superstructure is built on this falsehood.

Jehovah's Witnesses door to door recruitment is by their own admission an ineffective tactic. They have lost membership in all countries with major internet access because their false doctrines and harmful practices are exposed on the modern information superhighway.

There is good and valid reasons why there is such an outrage against the Watchtower for misleading millions of followers.Many have invested everything in the 'imminent' apocalyptic promises of the Jehovah's Witnesses and have died broken and beaten.
Respectfully, Danny Haszard

I usually am not one for movies on the first date, especially when you are trying to get to know a person, so that was the lack of comment there. And while I was not part of the aformentioned "Very Bad Things" watching, I did watch it with you early in our friendship, and you did say it was hilarious or some other synonymous word for very funny when we first watched it. While the movie was very bad, I do think that it helped me to appreciate your ability to see the humor in things.

I really like Kashupe's comment on it having been four years ago. Unfortunately, I also have retained my view of you as it was formed on that day. I'm sorry; I know that's hard.

I see it all as an exercise in creativity; I've sure never seen a Wes Anderson film on a date, but I enjoyed your prompt.

(all this from the one person who will honestly, lovingly admit that no, she does not read your blog)
