Product placement

I still have friends that complain about product placement in movies. It used to be something that got to me as well but many years ago I kinda just got over it. Why? Because it properly reflects a realistic version of the world we live in. Look down at your clothes, look at your desk,…read more

Until

Music is a strange thing. It is a series of strung together sounds that are pleasing to the listener. Unless of course you are an old crotchety man waving his stick at the damned youth of today. But music has a way of instilling emotions, making you move fast, or slowing you down for just……read more

Get untethered

I don’t like horror movies. As a young child I was afflicted with night terrors and that combined with an over active imagination did not bode well for an evening’s slumber. As I grew older the terrors waned but my dislike for horror persisted. But every once in a while a horror movie catches my……read more

If you liked the Manga…

Every once in a while I have the audacity to let someone else pick the movie I am going to watch. That is just crazy! But the other day my friend begged me to go see Alita: Battle Angel. Despite my reservations and due to him offering to pay, I said yes. This was a movie I……read more

Comfort Food

When life is hard, I have a habit of wanting to go back to a simpler time, when things were easy. When smiles, laughter, contentment didn’t have to be worked for and nothing was in the way of just enjoying life. The thing that allows me to do that, in the most economical way, is…read more

Simple Premise, Hard to Explain

I have been staring at a blank page for about half an hour trying to figure out how to write about the show High Maintenance. It is not an easy show to convey even though it has a pretty simple premise. IMDB put it most succinctly: A comedy that explores the private lives of unique New…read more

Bird Course

Friends From College is a show with a simple premise; you follow the shenanigans of a group of 6 close friends that have known each other since college and the people around them that interact with this friendship. The second season of the show came out early this year to little/no fanfare (none that I saw anyways)……read more

What have I learned

I first heard about the Netflix show Sex Education simply because Gillian Anderson was in it and my friends thought I should know because of my “obsession” with The X-Files. I read a synopsis of the show which sounded a little silly, kinda run of the mill, but there was definitely a possibility of fun……read more

Are Diamonds Forever?

Do you want to know why most men believe they need to spend 2-3 months salary on an engagement ring and why some women still believe they should hold their would-be husbands to that standard? Well, you can blame De Beers. Before the late 1930’s relatively few people bought diamond engagement rings. People… …more
