I primarily intended to reference the song though. ;) But yes, I think the name rings a bell with a lot of people here.

i went to see django unchained yesterday. It was good but not great. The climax was rather over the top violent (which is to be expected if you go to see a tarantino film) and it took a bit to long to wrap up after climax and kind of lost it's pacing there.

There's a bit in the trailer where he looks so much like Ben Stiller that for ages I actually thought it was Ben Stiller.
Here is my signature. Make of it what you will.

It's amazing how the most beautiful and exciting things in the world become the most boring when they are captured on video.

But yeah, that place looks breathtaking. Can you really see the stars at night?

You're spot on actually...photos (notwithstanding the odd Ansel Adams) and videos don't do Yosemite justice but this particular video is one of the best I've seen.

I was talking more about the fact that they can't ever capture what you'll actually feel when you're standing there. Not to mention the fact that when you're there, you just want to stay put for a minute, sometimes I honestly just want to stay in one place an hour or more, and just be amazed at the scenery. In the videos they pretty much have to cram as much as they can in there, add a lot of pointless talking and different people... I would have much preferred a still image.

Can you not there?

I remember countless camp outs in the mountains growing up and since I've been an adult, the stars and moon so bright you can read by them, or no moon and a million specks of light above, silent and vast.

If you are being serious, huh. I guess maybe I took them for granted.

Sorry, I must have not been paying attention when I wrote that. I meant see the stars THAT MUCH, I mean woah, that is some insane footage. Heck, they even show them during the day.

Yeah, we do see some stars at night but they're not many, I'm guessing that's because of the city lights I'm always surrounded by. To get a proper view of things like lunar eclipses or other once-in-a-long-while awesome space thingies, you have to go somewhere more empty. I'm sure this is the same everywhere in the world. The thing is, here the only option is the middle of the desert. I've never really associated the option of an amazing view of the night sky with anything greener than that.
