All we are saying is give peace a chance!

I think I'm obsessed with the movie Across the Universe. I've always been a fan of the Beatles, since I was in nappies really (U2 as well)! I fell asleep listening to Beatles music as a baby and I have fond memories associated with their music. John Lennon was also my childhood hero. This movie...I was afraid when I saw the trailer. It looked good but I was afraid it wouldn't do their music justice. I saw it in theaters and I adored it. It wasn't until seeing it again, on dvd, where I absolutely fell in love with this movie. I really think, that if there is such a thing as past lives, that I was alive during the 60s. That era really gets to me, it makes me cry and it makes me laugh. Seeing any scene from a movie that has the 60s, gets to me. If I could live in any era, I would live during the 60s. It was such a strong era, it made such an impact on the future (today). The Civil Rights, the war protests, the music revolution, and the politics. It was also the era where we questioned authority, we realized that the government isn't all powerful, all knowing, and perfect.
I just know that if I were alive during the 60s, I would be one of those hippies going across the country with other hippies, and going to peace rallies. I am such a hippie :D

On a completely unrelated note, Jim Sturgess and Joe Anderson are fine. ROFL

edit
Oy vey! While looking through LJ, trying to find some Beatles icons, I came across Beatles fan fiction and Beatles slash. I love fan fiction, I love slash....but I'm very uncomfortable when it's real people. I'm all for...Harry\Draco....but Dan\Tom just gets to me, they're not fake..they're real people. Beatles slash? My inner child is crying.

I adore Across the Universe. I dragged my friend along to see it in the theatre and we loved it! We sung Beatles songs throughout the night. It was wonderful. It also made me a huge Jim Sturgess fan. He is so adorkable. Damn these charming English boys! I've seen every movie that he has been in since ATU. Even the The Other Boleyn Girl! XD

The 60s is my favorite decade in American history. Seeing people of all backgrounds and color uniting for the greater good is moving. I love the leaders of that time too. Bobby Kennedy and Dr. King were incredible people. But on a sad note, the 60s make me sad because today people seem to apathetic to everything whereas in the 60s people were willing to dying for their beliefs.

I am a Sturgess fangirl :D

Yes, exactly! It was a decade of change and progress, people uniting for peace and the greater good. Today, role models are people like Britney Spears and Paris Hilton, it makes me sad. I do not want to sound racist when I say this and I will state right now that I am not talking about all black people, but it makes me sad when I hear a black teen say that they do not care about voting and that won't bother to even register. It makes me think of what the Civil Rights was all about, how voting was a part of it and that these few people are throwing it in the face of their parents and their grandparents, who fought for their right to vote. If you don't care about politics, that's one thing. But I've heard some people say that they didn't understand why their parents fought for the right to vote. It saddens me :(
It's also sad how the powers that be didn't seem to learn from the 60s, we're in another Vietnam.

Sturgess fangirls united! :D

Well right now more young black people...more young people in general are voting and are exited about this election. I never paid attention to politics until about a year ago(probably because I can actually vote now). But yeah.. anywho..not all but certainly a lot of black people have a strong distrust over the government. They don't believe that the government cares about them in the slightest. So they don't vote because they don't think it will affect them. Certain events like Hurricane Katrina don't exactly help that relationship, even though I think it was more class than race, but it certainly don't help to black and poor. Not voting is still wrong. I've always felt that if you don't vote, you don't have a right to complain.

That's very true, this election is bringing out more voters and more people are interested. You know, I still don't know if I like Clinton or Obama better. I was an Edwards girl. Well, there will only be one come November :P

So true, the government really screwed many people of New Orleans :(

Hear hear

Obama is going to win the Democratic nomination. There is no way Clinton could catch up even if the Michigan and Florida votes are counted. What about a Obama/Edwards ticket? I'd be on board for that. I really did like Edwards. He was my second choice after Obama.

I'm not sure if Obama can win against McClain. All of those small town white working class people are never going to vote for Obama. :(( If McClain wins, I'm going to Canada ..or England!

Oh, I know he'll win the Democratic nomination. I still don't know if I like him though ;D
Oh yeah, I always said that I'd be all for Obama if Edwards ran under him :)
I got an Edwards 08' bumper sticker and two days later he dropped out :x
Gore/Edwards baby! Hahaha, that won't be happening :\

True :((
I'd love to live in Canada...if McCain wins, I might actually get up and do it. o.o

You see it hard not being a Obama fan in Chicago. Obama's face is everywhere. In every area of the city! Rich, poor, middle class, white, black, doesn't matter! Everyone is wearing Obama t-shirts and pins. I've even seen some homemade ones! And plus we've known him longer than most of the country since he's ..our senator.

I better start looking at jobs in CanadaEngland. Oh god, who am I kidding I couldn't in a city with no Giordano's pizza! Plus bands never go to Canada.

Well, bands frequent Seattle and Portland. If I lived in B.C., I could always drive down there :3

oh, it hard to explain. Let's just say there is a group of people who enjoys looking at a guy named William Beckett's hipbones. And apparently someone felt the need to let him know. XD

Oh noes! I'm watching South Park right now and they fired Butters as their friend! I love Butters!

Haha, *googles*
Ooo, he has nice hip bones!

Oh noes! Butters is going to become a shadow of a creature, bringer of destruction and evil!
I haven't seen that one in a bit, let me know if there's a good Kyle faces for me to screen cap (mood theme) ;D

I know. He's super sweet and tall. I kinda hate meeting tall people. Their height is patronizing to me :P

Evil!Butters is adorable! Actually Anything!Butters is adorable. And I'll be sure to watch for Kyle's faces.
