Woke means a lot of things to a lot of people and I choose to reclaim the meaning of it. It’s about being sensitive to the needs of others. Being a good person. Giving your friends and neighbors the best shot at a better life. I also think it means being informed and educated about how others have experienced their lives. Being woke is important and needed in the days we live in.
I won’t argue about this and if you disagree that is your problem.
Nothing wrong with dreaming big but reality can be the wet blanket that keeps one grounded. Heads in the clouds are good but life can bring you back to earth. Maybe there is a balance that can be found between dreaming and reality.
The Queen of Rock and Roll has died. Tina Turner passed away on May 24, 2023, at the age of 83. Her music, her talent, and her story will be remembered always. She is in every sense of the word an icon. Thank you Tina for what you meant to millions in your superstar career. Rest in power Anna Mae Bullock from Nutbush, Tennessee. The stars and heavens will hear your song tonight.
At this time in life I think I complain too much. I need to have a thicker skin or something. I don’t want to come across as a perpetual whiner but I’m afraid I do. Complaining can be the hardest part to live with.
The Guardians of The Galaxy is my favorite of the Marvel franchises. It’s about one’s chosen family and defeating bad guys who threaten the galaxy. This last edition of Guardians is a good end for this band of misfits from across the galaxy. There is a lot of change happening for the crew which leads to them coming to a crossroads.
It is a movie with a lot of surprises and heart-wrenching emotions centered around Rocket the Racoon and his origin story. It’s a dark movie with some levity that I always appreciate. Serious issues are also explored too. There is a lot of heroism that you will cheer for.
You need to see the prior two movies and “Thor Love and Thunder” perhaps to understand what is going on in this movie and how these characters came together. Throw in their Christmas Special on Disney Plus for some additional laughs.
I will say it’s best seen on a big screen with good sound. Don’t wait for it to come to home video and streaming.
