Well that took much longer than what I thought it would but now S.I.N Gluttony is available for Kindle and other e-readers!
It is available on all e-book formats and can be found on my amazon page: http://www.amazon.com/S-I-N-Gluttony-Volume-Cody-Hutton/dp/099122390X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1401408968&sr=8-1&keywords=Cody+Hutton
and a multitude of other e-readers. Once again I cannot thank everyone enough for the support I have been receiving. It is a dream come true.
I am currently working on S.I.N Wrath and it is coming along quite well. I hope to have it released next spring if time allows.
So yeah, Godzilla.
I made a little post a few months back about Godzilla and basically all I have to say about the new movie that came out is that it has to be seen on the big screen. A lot of people won’t care about it, much like I couldn’t care less about Jon Hamm finding baseball players in India, but anyone who is a fan of seeing things wrecked and destroyed will not be disappointed with this film. Oh and those that love giant monsters will love it as well.
Those of us who have been around and saw the reviews might be intrigued about the negative posts about how Godzilla is not in this film at all. I hate to be that guy that says “they don’t understand” but the fact of the matter is they do not. Especially if they say they are fans of the Big-G.
Almost every Godzilla movie has that human element in it. The small, minuscule people drive the movie. They outline why the big bad monsters are there and the truth is you don’t really see much of Godzilla in Godzilla movies.
That being said, however, there is well more than enough time dedicated to Big-G. The movie does well in teasing the audience (and if we can’t use the excuse that we’ve been teased too much in other aspects of life you can’t do it here either) to the point of the big payoff and the payoff is just that, HUGE.
I believe a lot of people who look at a film in the negative based on how characters react to a situation do not quite understand how some humans emote in the real world. Without revealing anything there is a character in the film that has to compartmentalize a lot of events that go on so that they can actually complete the goal they set out to do. People may say the character is emotionless, wooden, or just uncaring but that is not what the character wants to feel, but has to.
Long story short I say with full confidence that you must see this movie on the big screen. There is absolutely no greater feeling than feeling your own chair and body shake when you hear that magnificent roar for the first time.
As always Godzilla 2014 is owned by Legendary pictures and the Toho corporation.
So a lot of people have been asking me where the kindle/e-book version of my novel has been and the simple answer is . . . I did not realize it would take almost a month for everything to get smoothed out with the e-book provider. In either case I hope I can get you guys the e-book version out in the next couple of days, if I read it right.
So . . . stay tuned!
I started this blog to try and promote my book and discuss things that I like but I made the ultimate mistake when browsing the internet: I actually came across and read opinions that people throw around like they are facts. It makes the blood boil. Everyone has a right to toss their opinion around, there is nothing wrong with that, but you have to have some sort of logic behind your opinion to make it a valid opinion. If you are on the internet and put yourself out there, whether it be facebook, blogs, or twitter, you have the responsibility to at least have some knowledge on your opinion.
If you do not then your opinion doesn’t matter. That is a fact. For example you could hold the opinion that the sky is actually the color of hate and that rain is secretly the tears of angels. Believe that all you want. Don’t spout it as fact. Furthermore if people call you batshit crazy for believing that you have no right to get defensive of your opinion unless you have facts to back it up.
If you don’t have any facts to back up your opinion then you need to shut the hell up. Simple right? Personal experience can count, but only if that experience has been documented by others as well. Spanking, for example, is a hot topic when it comes to how to discipline your children. There are valid opinions on each side. There is plenty of topic for debate. Saying that spanking children raises them to be murderers, however, is not a valid opinion. You are throwing around an absolute and only assholes deal in absolutes (ironic I know). At the same time it is possible to negotiate with your children to get them to behave, but if you’re dealing with a screaming child in a public place there is a good chance trying to negotiate with a child probably is not the best bet at that point.
There are many, many more topics in this day and age that people throw around as fact: all gun owners are sane individuals. All gun owners are crazy rednecks. Minorities all steal, white people are devils and want to eradicate all minorities, men are all rapists, women are all gold diggers. The list goes on. If you believe any of the previous examples well congratulations, you’re a fucking moron.
We live in a world where we can find information on ANYTHING if one takes the effort to look it up. The internet is an amazing tool to enrich our lives and we can use it to better ourselves for it. You want the truth? We suck. Human’s suck. I don’t mean that in a “we are destroying the world” kind of sucking, but we have all this information at our hands and we still proclaim that our opinion is solid fact without taking time to back up those claims. I’m here to help you. I’m even here to save you.
The next time you have an opinion on a topic take a moment to search your memory: Do you recall having dealt with that topic before? Have you researched anything on that topic? Did you hear it on Fox News? Did you hear it on The Daily Show?
Remember your opinion does matter. Everyone’s opinion does but only if it’s a well thought out, researched opinion. Most people will ignore your opinion if you back them with evidence and there is no greater feeling than knowing that your opinion is more valuable than another’s because you actually have the information to back it up. It may be opinion, but I think everyone loves to win so make sure you stack your corner as much as possible.
