A few days back, I was lucky enough to get movie premier tickets for Catching Fire from my sister’s friend. Having read The Hunger Games trilogy, I was pumped to see this movie. And the trailers definitely reflected how amazing this movie would be.
I must say that this movie didn’t let me down unlike the Hunger Games. Directed by Francis Lawrence starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks and a whole bunch of other famous celebrities, Catching Fire is a movie you mustn’t miss. So, let’s cut to the chase.
P.S. It’s “Catching Fire,” not ”The Hunger Games 2.”
We all know that our world isn’t perfect. So I thought I should give you a few things I consider as flaws that exist in our world.
- inequality among gender, race, and class
- the extinction of animals due to unnatural causes
- the absence of superpowers
- corruption (and it’s sad that these type of politicians are the ones that have a place in the government)
- the continuous degradation of our planet
- having no sequel to “The Incredibles”
- no food (e.g. cakes and sweets) that would help you lose weight
- the selfish nature of humans
- the fact that you can never be too nice without someone abusing it
- someone will always hate you for who you are
In June 2012, Google revealed, for the first time, its “GLΛSS" prototype. And in early 2013, Google started a campaign called "The Glass Explorer Program,” which enabled both tech savvy and non-tech savvy individuals to experience the product. Unfortunately, I missed out on the opportunity to become a “Glass Explorer.” And plus, people need to pay $1500 in order to get the actual product, which is a large sum of money to me considering that I am a university student who is currently unemployed.
However, despite being expensive, I wouldn’t mind paying the said amount, if I had the money, just to get my hands on one. Google has not yet announced whether the product’s price would be significantly less once it hits the markets.
The thing that I like best about the GLΛSS is its features, which makes the product to be very portable and handy. It has a built-in camera for taking photos and videos, allows video chat with friends, shows directions, googles things for you, and more.
So how exactly does it feel to see through GLΛSS? The video below is probably the closest we will get to experience it unless you have it, know someone who has it, or until it comes out in the market.
Now, if you know me or have met me personally, your first impression of me would most likely be that I’m weird, odd, or different; and that first impression would most likely live up to your expectations. And so #ifihadglass, I would share my view or perspective of the world to everyone just to give them a glimpse of this weird, odd, or different world of mine.
