The Kentucky Derby came and went and it still holds its title as the “most exciting two minutes in sports”. All this excitement was multiplied by the fact that I had some money on a couple of the horses. I took a really long shot and also a bit of a favorite to experiment with, in my first time betting, and I had a really fun time with that. One of the horses Showed but I had him winning instead so that may change my strategy a bit for future races. I’m keeping an eye on about three horses for the upcoming Preakness and Belmont Stakes, we’ll see whether they decide to race one of these or both. The Preakness is a much shorter race than the Derby, while the Stakes is longer than both so I have to keep up to date with that. I’m actually not seeing a triple-crown winner anywhere in the field, so that part of the excitement is greatly diminished but I’m definitely looking forward to seeing whether my horses will indeed participate.

Is there anything more disappointing than when a horror film is not scary? Much like Jeepers Creepers, a film that had this extreme potential to be ground-breaking, old style horror, turned out to be a joke, The Cabin In The Woods ended up being the same. It looked like an awesome turn in horror movies, something that hadn’t been seen before but it turned out to be even worse than even the cheapest of B-horror movies. Nothing I hate more than when reality is muddled with technology or with science fiction. Keep the horror real and it’ll work.
