Well, please excuse the poor quality but I simply had to share this when I stumbled across it on YouTube. As you know the main theme to why so many of us men cry to films always tends to be the father and son theme. Well after watching this, I went from having a dry throat to wiping tears of laughter away. Have a look at it yourself and tell me it’s not funny! All in all, I thought the Dad handled it quite well……

The Blind Side (2009)

The trailer explains it all. Some people are even calling this “The Rudy of the new millennium.” I get shivers just watching the above trailer and let me tell you, the film doesn’t disappoint. It’s brilliant. Well written, acted and had me with several dry throats throughout. If you like Rudy, you’ll simply love this. Sandra Bullock won an oscar for this role and to be honest I can kind of see why. I thought the black kid should have got an oscar before her but then again, I’m no film critic. In summary, if you haven’t seen this yet, it’s a must see, don’t miss out. Great film indeed. What you waiting for? Go See it !

Memorable Movie Quote :

Michael Oher: Courage is a hard thing to figure. You can have courage based on a dumb idea or mistake, but you’re not supposed to question adults, or your coach or your teacher, because they make the rules. Maybe they know best, but maybe they don’t. It all depends on who you are, where you come from. Didn’t at least one of the six hundred guys think about giving up, and joining with the other side? I mean, valley of death that’s pretty salty stuff. That’s why courage it’s tricky. Should you always do what others tell you to do? Sometimes you might not even know why you’re doing something. I mean any fool can have courage. But honor, that’s the real reason for you either do something or you don’t. It’s who you are and maybe who you want to be. If you die trying for something important, then you have both honor and courage, and that’s pretty good. I think that’s what the writer was saying, that you should hope for courage and try for honor. And maybe even pray that the people telling you what to do have some, too.

Well I can’t believe it took me so long to see this film. I agree, It’s a classic. Simple as that. Usual story of a kid who wants to do the “impossible” and manages to achieve it. Some good father and son scenes which had me with a very dry throat. I watched this with a living room full of family so I was holding back a little. I can easily see why people cry at this film. Made me smile, laugh and almost, almost cry.Maybe next time i’m sure. I must admit we all laughed seeing a young Vince Vaughn!   If you haven’t seen this already, go rent it / download it or buy it NOW! Thanks for the recommendation “Mr L” shall we say ( You know who you are.) Great soundtrack really adds to the dry throat (hmm).

Memorable Movie Quote :

Fortune : “You’re 5 foot nothin’, 100 and nothin’, and you have barely a speck of athletic ability. And you hung in there with the best college football players in the land for 2 years. And you’re gonna walk outta here with a degree from the University of Notre Dame. In this life, you don’t have to prove nothin’ to nobody but yourself. And after what you’ve gone through, if you haven’t done that by now, it ain’t gonna never happen. Now go on back”

Flight Delays – The Latest Information For Those Of You Who Are Stuck In Europe! Lift Sharing Info / Live Feed

Look on the bright side, It's like a big game of RISK!

Well my family are on vacation with me right now. They still haven’t managed to fly home yet. The most frustrating thing about all of this is the news, airports, flight companies and radio all have conflicting reports! So here is the latest update and the best sites to check out to keep updated:

As of this posting, Spain seems to have the most open airports. For a map of open airports in Europe that is updated regularly click HERE (NewYork Times) . Most companies are redirecting passengers to Spain.

For the latest information about European airspace click HERE (NATS)

For a live feed to see the volcano that is causing all this trouble click HERE

For those of you lucky enough to be on the worst airline RYAN AIR, they do not contact you at all! Just try to reschedule your flight yourself online. For those of you stuck in airports, remember you have rights! Legally flight companies HAVE to supply you with food and water. If they haven’t REMIND THEM! Apart from that the biggest and best piece of advise is DO NOT REFUND YOUR TICKET! ONLY reschedule your flight. Rescheduling is free and if you refund your ticket, you will be stuffed later on when you book a NEW flight – The chances are it will cost WAY MORE than the refund you got. Currently Ryan Air has canceled all flights until Wed 21st April.

Last but not least talk to everyone you can, try to share lifts or chip in together for taxis home. You are more than welcome to use this site as a forum for who can help who. For example my brother needs a lift to the UK. Anyone want to chip in together for a taxi or has a car? Get writing below its free and no sign up needed. All feedback welcome and needed. Remember the above sites are updated before the airlines update their own sites so keep checking.

GOOD LUCK ALL!

This Weeks Hilarious Hits – “Midgets” Are In This Summer!

Midget Mafia

I’m on vacation at the moment but of course there is always time to log in and check ManCry on my iphone connection via my laptop. All in all it’s a bit of an effort to be honest, but after seeing the last 2 weeks of hits – I’m really pleased I did. For those of you who don’t know, thanks to modern technology ( or “hocus pocus” as non IT people call it) I can see what people search for on google when they click on my site. Since starting my new feature of “Would You Fire A….” the amount of people that have googled “midget” is both entertaining and strangely worrying.

Like I’ve said before just try to  picture someone starting up their PC, loading up firefox and then typing the following entries and clicking return (and then enjoying well written, hilarious as well as emotional material on ManCry) :

midget collar up

girl eat under table

fuck midget

mean midget

midget

fat midget

black midget

strong midget

drunk midget

down syndrome midget

midgets with guns (my personal favourite btw)

midget on fire

midget hands

fucking a midget

midget pool

disturbing midget

fat midgets

So I hope you enjoyed a little chuckle at the above like I did. What the obsession with midgets is I’ll never know but I’ll have to write about them more often! On the one hand it’s nice to pick up new fans on ManCry but on the other a  little depressing to know all my spare time on here creating articles, reviewing films, sharing soundtrack all comes in at second place to midget searches! Enjoy the week all.

Well Gents,  I’ve just been looking at the stats and ManCry achieved over 1,000 hits in less than 30 days. That’s a new record for ManCry so THANK YOU to each and every one of YOU! I know it’s not hundreds of thousands compared to other massively popular sites and blogs but I’m really pleased with it. A basic idea that has grown into a popular blog with lots of regular visitors. I hope the site continues to make you cry, laugh and smile.  Got any feedback or suggestions? Want to see a new feature? Then please leave comments below.

Don’t forget you can help promote ManCry by joining our facebook page (link on the right) and telling your friends in the pub. Where else can you talk about “Would you fire a midget / wheel chair user / blind person!?”  If you have 3 seconds (of course you do!) please take the time to click “make #1” on the alphainventions box to the right. It really helps us out. Thanks again and enjoy your stay.

ManCry Debate Of The Week: Would You Fire A Blind Person?

April 7, 2010 at 12:41 pm | Posted in Articles, Fun | 1 Comment

Well Gentlemen it’s that time of the week again. Lets see we have covered midgets and wheelchair users so up next might as well be… the blind. So take it with a pinch of salt please, don’t be offended. Mind you saying that it’s not like any blind people will be reading this so fuck  em! Let’s get started…

ManCry Debate Of The Week  Would You Fire A Blind Person?

Let’s be honest – It doesn’t happen. Not only because it would look very bad in the old “PR” department but for the simple fact that a lot of blind people won’t get the job in the first place. I’ll give anyone £10 right now if they can tell me they know a blind person who’s employed as a (similar to a midget in fact):

1. Bodyguard

2. Window Cleaner

3. Data Entry Clerk

Now I’m sure there are some blind people employed in the white-collar industry. There must be. Now a days with modern technology the work computer can speak out what’s on the screen and direct blind people. This enables them to almost live a normal life and carry out work perhaps even more efficiently than some of the useless normal sighted lazy bastards I know. Quite amazing if you think about it really. However, as with the wheel chair users, there are some sentences you would just have to completely avoid using, just to be on the safe side. For example:

“I see your point.”

“I don’t think you’re seeing the bigger picture”

“I don’t know how you didn’t see that one coming!”

“Did you see the game last night?”

“What can you see yourself doing in 10 years?”

“Do you mind if I put your desk lamp on, I can’t see a thing?”

“Honestly mate, it was unmissable!”

“Did you see the look on his face!”

“Have you seen Avatar yet ? It’s got amazing 3D effects!”

Those are only the examples off the top of my head, there literally must be thousands. I suppose thinking about it, if you were blind, you would want to be treated normally like the rest of us. The problem is if they were to be treated “normally” like us, then they have to accept the jokes, puns and comments like we all do. I just don’t think they can keep up with it. It’s not their fault of course, even a simple ice breaker like “Did you see Lost last night?” gets you in trouble.

So, if your blind and lucky enough to get a job in the first place, the chances of you loosing it are virtually none. Anyway, in the unlikely event that you do lose your job – You’ll never see it coming anyway.

No further questions your honour…….

Until the next debate. Enjoy the week.

Alright there brotha!?

Alright there brotha!? Like most of you, I’m loving Lost right now and glad Desmond is back in it. I found this on YouTube, laughed my arse off, now I can’t get it out of my head. So please enjoy and good luck getting it out of your head too! Your challenge for the day is to say “Alright there brotha” to at LEAST 5 people today. At Work would be especially good, bonus points to you if you can sneak it in during a presentation! Feedback very welcome!
