There was only one skate park on Staten Island and it was recently bulldozed. A rally is being held this Sunday to help support the rebuilding of the park...
"On Sunday May 15, 2011 at noon we will be having a demonstration to support the rebuilding of Benjamin Soto Skate Park. As you know, this skate park was located on Father. Capodanno Blvd. in Midland Beach and was bulldozed by the Parks Department on April 18, 2011. We NEED to have this park rebuilt for the kids of the community. This was their one and only skate park on the Island and now these kids have no place to go. Our goal is to reach out to as many people as possible for support of the rebuilding. We would appreciate any help you could give us in this matter. Your presence would be very beneficial. Please attend to support."
It's not a secret that Star Wars Episode 1 is not only a horrible Star Wars movie, it's just a horrible movie in general. Sitting through it is a task, it's so dense and filled with boring political plot points, bad acting and computer graphics. It feels more like an ILM portfolio showcasing CG techniques rather than a film.
I can remember as a kid watching it for the first time and leaving the theater confused. I thought maybe I wasn't watching as careful as I should have been? I dunno what it was but I felt like I missed something because, its Star Wars, isn't it supposed to be good? I thought, "Did I just black out for most of that movie? Was I daydreaming the whole time?" I begged my parents to take me again, so I could see what I surely missed but they wouldn't take me. I had to wait for it to come out on video when I finally realized that it wasn't just me, this shit really does just suck.
