Gallery (2)

 this week's theme: LIPS

 The second (third if you count Goldfish Week) themed gallery on thatrangerkid is a go. I just love all of these pictures; it's amazing what you can find with a simple Google search. I never knew one could be so creative with one thing.

Artificial Intelligence

A highly advanced robotic boy longs to become "real" so that he can regain the love of his human mother. 

DIRECTOR: Steven Spielberg
WRITERS: Brian Aldiss, Ian Watson, Steven Spielberg
STARRING: Haley Joel Osment, Jude Law, Frances O'Connor

I received this movie as gift and I was a little unsure whether I wanted to watch. But since it was a gift I gave it a try and popped it into my player. The movie was so heart-wrenching yet there was always a sense of wrongness. David isn't 'real' but the whole time I was screaming "He doesn't understand! He's just a little boy!" David was so saddening yet sick in the head (or harddrive in his case), so while watching you're always caught between pity and horror. By the time the movie ended I really wasn't sure if I had enjoyed or despised the 2 and a half hours. 7/10 stars.

Fun Fact #16

An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain.

Picture Share (2)

    This one I was actually making for my profile picture on a website. I made it by piecing together different clipart I found on the net. I just used the simple paint program that's probably on every computer.

Fun Fact #15

 Research has determined that most people are happiest at 7:26pm on a Saturday night.


      I will not be continuing any polls/surveys until I get my views up. I try to pretend I have a lot of viewers, but that just isn't true. So far I am the only to have commented on my posts. It will take a lot of work to keep thatrangerkid running the way I want it to. But I really don't want to all be for naught. If there is nobody to look at my wonderlicious posts then why should I make it so fantastical.
       So, please, if you are visiting thatrangerkid, comment just so I know that someone reads. Tell me how you liked it or you can give me advice or maybe some tips on getting more views.

Gallery (1)

 This week's theme: WATER
I was browsing on a website when I saw this amazing splash art (third image) and so I decided to find more. Scrolling through, an idea came to me, if I'm so captivated by this how about making it the gallery theme? So, as you can see, I did.

Photo Share(1): Tulips

This week's theme is Tulips. I took these pictures myself. It was raining and the tulips were there and my camera was sitting like 'Go take some pictures.' So I did.
