Hey, glad you are a dedicated fan to our page, but wait you probably accidentally clicked on this thinking that this was something interesting and unique. At least you are half right. For this month we clearly have more than just my totally “valued” opinions. In fact, we now three more sections for my imaginary audience to read. Feel free to write to us your totally valued opinions, and we will totally not throw them away. Either way let's go to my thoughts. This day has been a pretty mediocre week, or this weeks been a pretty mediocre day. I’m starting to lose my sense of time and responsibility, so I've put myself in my own cloud of ignorance. So, currently my wall has 30 or 40 dents in it due to my excessive throwing of previously mentioned lemons. It's not helping anything, and now I must plaster my walls. Amidst to repairing the holes of my life, and walls, these songs come to mind as I regret my life choices. Sit back relax, drink some stupidly big latte, and listen to these top picks as you zone out to the good vibes.
1. “Hate to Say I Told You So,” by The Hives
2. “Howlin’ For You,” by the Black Keys
3. “Mess Around,” by Cage the Elephant
4. “Afraid of Heights,” by Wavves

A question that your grandma, that screaming 12-year-old on Modern Warfare, and the one mocked and confronted by the comedic group Monty Python is the “Meaning of Life.” Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life is a movie that leaves you wondering what exactly what did you just watch. It keeps you constantly questioning exactly what it all means, through perfect set-ups, odd character choices, and never-ending creativity, and of course the fish. One thing that this movie delivers is legitimate attempt on tackling the question of meaning via a dissection of the clichés of imperialism, education, and life itself. Probably one of the most unappreciated details in the movie is the creative way they explore throughout society; they explore the comedic hypocrisy societies and governments have created, in history, in war, and in life. The movie has a complete disregard for family friendliness in exchange for a payoff of surprising observations such as how futile denial is and how to appreciate life, therefore in my opinion this movie ages well and never stops being funny viewing after viewing. Overall if you're not squeamish and need a good laugh, this movie is the one for you.

Hey and welcome to my totally original idea of Tim's’ Camera Corner! This is where I give you totally valid advice without telling you my entire life story, and where they really keep the aliens. First, I’d like to discuss properly using your rule of thirds, which is how you divide your photo into sections and how to space your subject (what you're taking a photo of) is occupying. For the best results always try to balance the space your subject occupies by either placing them in a way to where they only occupy one third, two thirds, or the whole frame. For Example, In the photo shown below is a shot of downtown Knoxville, and center frame is a truck with an Ohio plate on the front. You know last time I was in Ohio- Apologizes, where was I? I don’t know. I guess it doesn’t even matter anymore. I’m gonna go. Oh, please remember to always have buffer space around your subject so it looks more aesthetically pleasing.
