"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green


Day 013 - Whatever Strikes My Fancy

Recently I've been obsessed with anything military. I watch the Military Channel, I read books about WWI-Operation Iraqi Freedom, and I watch all TV shows/movies that have to do with those particular wars.

I am just really intrigued by the dedication, hardwork, and brotherhood which is a part of the armed forces. Having a retired Navy enlisted man as a father doesn't hurt matters either.

So as my "whatever strikes my fancy day" I am going to talk about one of my favorite military shows Generation Kill.

Generation Kill is a 2008 HBO television miniseries based on the book of the same name by Evan Wright about his experience as an embedded reporter with the 1st Reconnaissance Battalion‎ of the United States Marine Corps during the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

Unfortunately you can't find the series on HBO anymore since its been 3 years practically. However using sites like Surf the Channel, you could probably find the episodes online. Of course it is also on Netflix and Amazon. Believe me it is worth it!
