Transforming a beloved book series into a film is never an easy task. There will be haters who quote the book to you, pointing out each and every derivation from the original plot and story. The truth is that a movie is inherently different from a book and changes must be made in the transformation. You cannot please everyone. Sometimes you get an awkward disaster (cough…Twilight…cough), and sometimes you get The Lord of the Rings. Read the rest of this entry
I’ll keep this short since it’s a day for friends and family, not surfing the Internet…but we are thankful that you’re here.
It’s a travel day, Crusaders; and 2WC finds themselves hitting the road and taking to the skies. It’s already been a long day, and we suspect the same is true for many of you. So we wish you happy, safe travels and give you a moment of entertainment. Happy trails!
…just for fun:
If you’re reading this you’ve survived Thanksgiving and Black Friday. Congratulations.
Those who spent the wee hours of yesterday morning waiting outside your local Toys R Us, Best Buy, Kmart, Target, etc., you have my sympathies. I only hope that it was worth it.
Personally the thought of standing out in the cold, and in many cases wet, before dawn sounds absolutely terrible to me. Although I recognize that most power-shoppers are made of sterner stuff than me when it comes to the world of retail warfare.
However in a world where Amazon, Ebay, and online shopping for all of the retail outlets previously mentioned, I find it even more difficult to stomach the idea of a traditional Black Friday.
Sure online shopping may not have the thrill of sitting on a sidewalk in preparation for elbowing out other shoppers for the latest and greatest at an “unbeatable” price, but it works for me.
Maybe it’s the tactile experience of it all, maybe it’s a quest for simpler times, maybe it’s our competitive spirit , whatever it is, you cling to it Black Friday enthusiasts. If you need me, I’ll be shopping in a week or so.

Happy Thanksgiving! 2WC (and myself of course) would like to thank you all for your comments, likes, shares, and your support.
Now go away. Put your phone down, step away from the computer, set down the tablet and go be with family and friends.
Also, have a wonderful holiday!
