They Live

They Live
“I’ve come to kick butt and wear RayBans…and I’m all outta RayBans!”

Okay I guess I started my ode to John Carpenter early. Let’s start with one my favorites. “They Live” is a great sci-fi movie interrupted only  by an overly long wrestling matches. Roddy Piper plays Nada, a tough guy construction worker with a bad mullet trying to edge out a living in the big city. Yes, the same Roddy Piper from the wrestling fame. So in the movie Roddy, oops I mean Nada *snicker at girly name here* is unemployed and hunting the street for work when he runs across some strange sunglasses. These sunglasses give him the ability to see the world as it really is. The world is run by Aliens controlling us through submlinal messages in our advertising and media! I knew it! How else can you explain things like Oprah or Tom Cruise being so popular. All media print and advertising is just cover for subliminal messages like “obey” ,”sleep” ,”consume”, “marry and multiply.” The last ad apparently worked on me.  3 kids an a mini-van later. All I’ve got to say is put on your sunglasses or you’ll be asking for a whole heap of hurt. Check it out!
