IDIOT QUOTE OF THE CENTURY
- Barack Obama
Can you really believe this?! I mean, this is hopeless! Definitely 'Idiot Quote of the Century'! If this guy thinks this is the 'greatest nation in history', why does he want to change it? I bet as soon as that came from his mouth, he wanted to go and bury his head in some sheets from embarrassment! I don't know what to say about it, do you?

Fall is finally here ladies!
Autumn is my favorite time of the year.....Here is a picture that I found off of Google, seeing that
I didn't have one of my own, but, I have hiked this trail many a time with my dad and brother.
We call this the 'Ghost Mountain Trail', my dad, when he was a little boy, used to come up to this place. It was an old cable car place, and my dad would take a ride here every now and again.
(Thus the paved road) The cable cars are no longer here, but the paved road is, somewhat cracked and dirty, but it still remains.
Up at the top, there is the foundation where a store and restaurant used to stand; you can still see the old drains from the kitchens and bathrooms. Dad used to come there while it was still in business, so he remembers where every thing was at.
If you veer off a bit from the road about half way up, there is a small deer trail, and if you follow that trail, you'll eventually end up at a sight where some old cabins used to stand.
All in all, this place is REALLY neat.
Anyway, here is a picture of Fall in the North Carolina mountains!
Praise God, they found the mother and her son today in the woods.
All I know is that they're taking her and (I believe) the boy to the hospital.
Thank you for all of your prayers!
P.S. Please still feel free to comment on the "Requiem for a Dream" post, you still have till

A sister of a friend of ours went missing yesterday morning.
She has a seven year-old son and went on foot into the woods early in the morning.
They have not seen her since and the second day of the search is coming to a close.
Please pray for the mother and her son and our friend and his wife.
P.S. Here is a link to the Amber Alert about the two. Click

NOW I'm pleased with the comments on "Crusaders"!
Here are the results:

I am so sorry that I did not post sooner I had started but something must of happened and it get closed because I had thought I had posted but guess not.
When I listen to the song since it is about the crusaders I think of them so first I see the crusader army marching through the desert hills with there armor and banners bravely streaming in the wind yet they stagger they are very weary with the hot sun beating down on them. Then up on a hill before them the enemy appears and charges down on them. It turns into a ragging battle as one army strives with the other then quickly the battle is over the enemy had ridden off as fast as they came it was but a raid to exhaust the crusaders more and the crusaders are left to look over the dead cover them with the sand and then with grim determination march on towards Jerusalem more exhausted and sad at the loss of more of there brave comrades. Then after there long day they start to brake for camp.
Maybe I have to much imagination but that is what I see when I hear it. I am glad you put it on I really like it.
I will try to be a bit more prompt in the future with my thoughts on your songs that you have up for judging.

Don't you absolutely hate it when only one person comments? I get that ALL THE TIME. :P
Anyway, I listened to the music... it was amazing!! It sounded like music from Lord of the Rings movies (if you've ever seen those). It was really nice. I enjoyed it! :)

Well, I think of Narnia or some other mythical battle thing. It really could change people's emotions in a movie.But I mostly saw the men lined up, glaring at their enemy, far away across the battlefield. And then bravely charging into battle. It reminds me so much of the battle in Narnia:The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe that that kind of thing crossed my mind instantly. Couldn't be helped, I guess.
Well, that's great! Keep 'em coming!
Okay, now, down to business; This band, X-Ray Dog, makes music for movie previews, and even though I don't particularly care for his band title, I love most of his music! My brother has asked me to post this song, "Requiem for a Dream" by these people, so here it is. Do as in the first post and scroll down to the bottom of the Playlist. This song is definitely 'battle music', and that is just one more reason why I'm not going to leave this song on here for more than a week.
One note, the movie, "Requiem for a Dream", should most certainly NOT be seen by Christian people!
I myself have not seen it and don't plan to, but I have read reviews on it, and a short summery is this:
Drug addicts and adult situations.
So please, do NOT see the movie! The music, I think is NOT worthy of the movie. My brother and I have a saying: "Bad movie, Good music!"
So, that's just a warning.
Oh, and before I forget, here's my review on "Crusaders" by Harry-Gregson Williams:
This music is a great piece, it definitely is leaned toward 'battle/action' scenes, but is also mournful in a way. The vocals at the beginning are low, therefore giving you the sad/mourning feel. As the song goes on, the vocals become higher and the drums start to kick in a bit more, giving it the 'battle/action' feel.
All in all, a VERY dramatic song (just my type!)
Hope you all enjoyed it!
