Make Some Noise

Fucking earthquakes won't break this world.
I've had migraines and I know it hurts,
But if we can't feed our own hunger first,
Why do we hunger for other worlds?
I must be a glitch cause I fuck shit up.
Way of thinking's fucked like our shitty politicians,
Unless you add a swear word nobody ever listens,
Somehow they all doubt my wrath.
Doubt my path. I'll never be the one for a bloodbath,
I won't ever run when you offer free hugs.
I look a wee smug and I'm bleak like free doves,
I won't ever run from free love.
I'm pale cause I've been indoors - something I won't take pride in.
People see me working but I feel I've been hiding,
A feud for the word - I fight every day do your worst.
Set loose all the herds for the truth in my verse.
And I? I know I'm just a flagship.
One day some will pass me, I lag like Windows 95,
Bob on on them backstreets, bobbing like the boys,
The world is our speaker, so come on make some noise,
Make some noise.

Is This Haiku Real

Check this check,
And tell me it's not a fake,
And I'll cash it.

My Internet Was Down

My Internet is down, it's down, it's flat-lined.
I was up on the cloud, it's noon, it´s that time.
But suddenly I'm cut, time's up, connections - are gone.
I move on, and wait for resurrection. It's dawn.
But hey! Look there it's my reflection!
In the wake of a pond, beyond my recollection.
I look at clouds and yawn, and I reckon I could wreck a ton of waves,
It's cool, a tool, I crave.
I run! I spring! I jump through hoops of wonder!
The sun is like a drink, and I sip it till I'm sunburnt.
I fool around! I rule the town! My school is out! I'm cooling down!
Then Internet to this truant growls, and now I'm sitting bound.
My Internet was down; I've been around.

Not Chillin' Just Killin' Time

I'm not chillin I'm killin' time
I just wrote a killing line
No filler no filling I don't spill ink
I instill the lines

Right back at the world
Right back in action I'm hurled
Right back into the...
Human consuming we serve

Herbs help me escape my wake
But I'm not compelled today
To stray, to make my own way
To hell and to hail

I don't need to be the person I want to
I just need to be, no worse and no flaunt noo
Moo says the cow, happiness cool wow
And that's all I really have to say

Mission Impossible 3 (2006)

Mission Impossible 3 (2006)

The third Mission Impossible still feels like the most serious one of all. In each of the first three it felt like they were trying to find a style that suits the franchise, changing the mood as well as the mission, and this one was pretty intense.

Philip Seymour Hoffman plays a most convincing villain as Owen Davian, and once again there's a mole within the IMF itself. A few new characters pop up and act like they've been there forever, most notably Billy Crudup as John Musgrave, and Laurence Fishburne as Theodore Brassel - the top brass. I'm glad at least Luther is a re-occurring character though, and Simon Pegg as Benji was an interesting addition. His presence in itself seems to opt for a comical increase. There's also Ethan's loving wife Julia (Michelle Monaghan), and a couple new team member. I wonder if they'll stick around.

As with the last movie, this one's also about a virus, though the details aren't specified (we're not even told it is a virus, but it looks like one). It's not so much about what the virus can do, as what the man who wants the virus can do, and he is one dangerous man. Where the last movie offered a flare of romance, this one has real love, and it plays a central role in this intrigue. The gadgetry and tech is back as well, on a whole new level. Professionalism: big jump.

The mission? It takes place at the Vatican, among other places, and though the details aren't discussed in advance (I wish they were) it's all very elaborate and professional-like. The stunts are elaborate as ever, as are the chases, and heists, and all the scheming behind the scenes. It doesn't really compare to the first two IMO, but it's another great IM movie, third best before it all went back to basics, and got... better! It really did.

Good action, and with this it's been ten years of MI movies! They've handled the franchise well.

Mission Impossible 2 (2000)

Mission Impossible 2 (2000)

I've watched this movie more times than I care to mention, and it's still a blast. The action scenes are intense, and the intimate scenes are intimate, and the intrigue is one step ahead of all other MI movies. I just realized it's directed by John Woo too! So, that explains it.

Not only does Woo manage to capture the motions of each scene, and to empower the action, but he has a flare for romance. The typical potential-virus-outbreak scenario may not be unique, but it feels like it's taken to a whole other level here. An emotional level.

There's not as much gadgetry and tech as there was in the first movie, but it's got enough for it to still feel relevant. The only thing that could possibly be improved is the mission itself, of which the planning stage is missing almost entirely. The fact that the one 'mission' is a failed mission doesn't make it better either.

I do miss the preparations and insights, but as an action movie, it can't get much better than this. Tom Cruise is the perfect protagonist, Dougray Scott the perfect antagonist, and Thandie Newton the perfect link. The characters are all a great fit, except for maybe that Australian helicopter pilot. Not sure what he contributes.

There are some uncomfortable scenes of close-up knife blades, finger-tips getting chopped off, and self-inflicted viruses - and there's a car chase out of the ordinary. They went wild with the filming, and it's wonderful! It flows. The continuity of plot and action is sublime.

It starts on a mountain. There's a lab. There's a plane. There's exotic sceneries, intrigue, a mass of masks and deception, and one grand showdown in multiple parts. There's symbolism too, with doves and waves and what-nots. It's not traditional Mission Impossible material, if that's what you're looking for, but out of the original trilogy this is definitely the one that had the biggest impact on me/the one I like and remember the most.

It's action with a passion! It's John Woo.
