My Favorite Scenes from My Favorite Movies: The Matrix – The Jump Scene

I love the “Jump Program” scene in the move The Matrix because it’s so true. To move to the 5th dimension (the spiritual dimension of life) we have to make a jump. That jump requires everything Morpheus talks about here: We have to let it all go… Fear, doubt, disbelief. It is only by letting these things go can we crossover. It’s scary at first but once you jump you will discover that there is another side to safely land on. Continue reading

A Letter to Hollywood on Piracy

If you would release everything in every format, at a fair price, most people would choose quality over piracy any day. People don’t like to wait. Why would you wait when you can have it now for free? You seem to think you are the disney vault and anticipation’s going to make you want to pay more for it….umm no. That only works if you have no other choice and the movie is really special- more often that not- it isnt. If i want a diet coke i dont want to wait 6 months, i want it now. If i have access to a free soda fountain i’m not going to pay for that either. I figures it evens out for overpaying for it before. Continue reading
