Guy Fawkes was a Mets Fan

November 5, 2009

Remember, remember the fifth of November
The Yankees, a World Series they bought
A-Rod is the reason, the Mets fans this season
Will forever, be distraught

I’m not a particularly avid baseball fan or anything (though I am a Mets fan by association).  I just wanted an excuse to use The Fifth of November poem today.

Have a good one!

Remember Remember…

November 5, 2008

Remember remember the fifth of November
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
I see no reason why gunpowder, treason
Should ever be forgot…

If you haven’t seen it yet, take a night and watch V for Vendetta.  It’s a great flick and I think it has a lot of powerful things to say about the nature of government and the people.  I find it to be a fun discussion piece as well.  From the Wiki link above, “…the filmmakers have said that the film is intended more to raise questions and add to a dialogue already present in society, rather than provide answers or tell viewers what to think.”

I could go on, but I’ll let you draw your own conclusions.  If you have seen it, please share your thoughts.  Spoiler free, if possible.
