Thank ye, pardner.

Yeahhh... just got back from watching Hidalgo with 'the fam'. Joyful experience. Mind you, the sarcasm in the last sentence only refers to the family part of the experience. It would make so much more sense if I had been adopted, that could perfectly explain why these people are my polar opposites. No fault of mine however, I am not going to be diffident. Fuck no, not today, thank you kindly.

Anyway, Hidalgo... I was deeply impressed. I was expecting some crappy, lets demonize Arabs and make them look like raving lunatics with massive swords along with pretty horsies prancing through the desert, probably to find some oasis orgy. You know, your general run of the mill Hollywood. I was pleasantly suprised, the movie, especially the "Cowboy" [Viggo] is a man of character and the Arabs were portrayed orientally but not demonized, rather, the United States Government and their treatment of the Souix Tribe was demonized and rightfully so! Long live the Mustang! Anyhow, I'm sure there are people that read my journal and have yet to see the film so I'm not going to give it all away. Good flick though...I'd still like to see some reconciliation for the American Indians... Perhaps I'm too quixotic.

...just another freak in the freak kingdom...
