Appalachian Patria

Appalachian Intellectual. To me that means plain thinking. I am A Non Commissioned Officer in the Army Reserves. Let me say...My views expressed here are mine and not those of The U.S. Army, Army Reserve or my fellow brethren in The National Guard. This is entirely Sua Sponte. This is My Thinking. I'm single and in my mid 30's. Politicaly, I'm a Libertarian. (Again, Sua Sponte.I do not represent the Libertarian Party.)I love my native Appalachia, Rock n Roll and...I love God.

Location: Brevard, North Caroilina

I started blogging for two reasons. I was concerned about the changes to the area I live in, Southern Appalachia and I was about to go to the war. I was in Iraq in 06 and 07 and now Kuwait in 11 and 12. Blogging was a means of documenting my experiences and hoping it would help gain clarity. I don't feel that way about it any more. It's said people write blogs because they are frustrated, that's why people read them too. That makes us sound apocalyptic. Are we? Let it be said, what I say here is of my own thinking. This is entirely Sua Sponte and not an official representation of the U.S. Military or the U.S. Government as a whole.

The Tourist Games

I went to the MWR to see The Hunger Games last night. Next door they were doing karaoke. Karaoke is a disgusting and vile thing. Even though I'm a Libertarian, I contemplate it being outlawed, punishable by electrocution. Yes, karaoke singers should wear shock collars. Even in a boring place like Kuwait. As for the movie, I got it, enjoyed it and could say, "yep, looks like the rivers back home". Though, the majority of it was filmed down next to Hickory. I was reading the man that owns that old mill town in the movie wants to sell it. The tourist Mongers keep showing up there and it worries him. Honestly, I didn't see any scenery to get excited about. Good story line, though. sadly enough, I think our society is getting kind of like that, but, I'm not getting on my soap box today. Well, that's about it.

About my absence from posting, honestly, I just ain't felt like it.

So, what's your thoughts in Hurricane Lanterns?
