I really loved the Matrix when it came out, watched it a bunch of times. But after seeing the first sequel I abandoned the franchise (I used to be very dramatic when it came to movies). But now I hold no ill feelings towards it and have been wondering why every time I think about watching it I realize I just don't want to. This review has brought to light real issues with the film, issues I ignored back then and are why I don't particularly feel like watching it now. As a past fan of the film I think your review is on point. Also the Neo-Trinity relationship drives me batty. Maybe their emotions are on another wavelength that's not visible. I still love their clothes though, even if they are oddly specific ^_^
I changed the channel to watch Wolfgang Puck, but this video was on. I was so happy the show listing was wrong. I never watch music shows anymore or listen to the radio. So I wouldn't have found him if fate had not intervened. Yay!!!!!

Piece Of Quirk
Owner, 2000 - present
I make cool stuff, for cool people aka everyone. I'm pretty excited about the diversity of mankind and I like to think my work is a tribute to that. This is a self owned very small business where I make jewelry, dolls, hair accessories, greeting cards and wearable art.
Intern, 2012 - 2012
I created graphic for various web series using photoshop. I would collage images in funny ways for news segments, smoothly extract celebrities from photos for the birthday segments, and alter images for the 'Spot the Difference" segments. Overall it was really fun.

I'm both determined and kind. A winning combination.
Finding beauty in odd places and discovering the potential in discarded things is what sparked my artistic journey, turning me into the person I am now. I love all forms of writing, screenwriting being my favorite, and I love animation. The secret life of inanimate objects has always interested me. Now I have the skills to animate the inanimate. It's a pretty rad deal.
My style is one of encouragement. I wish for everyone to know how wonderful and beautiful they are. I send support to all my quirky people who think they are alone in this world. My message to you is this: You are not alone, you are very much loved, and your quirks can be your strengths if viewed in the right light.
Survived film school and got a B.F.A. in Animation/Screenwriting. I wrote an award winning film called "Nobody Loves Anna". I studied Anthropology at Wake Tech and was invited to join The National Anthropology Honor Society for overseas study of the restoration of the Terracotta warriors.
