All Things End

The past couple of weeks have been interesting as several pop-culture phenomenon have concluded all at the same time. We have seen the end of stories about a fantasy world, political satire, superheroes, and some nerds who eat together, that have captured the collective hearts and imaginations of millions of people around the world in……read more

Weird words we use everyday

To tell you the truth I think all words are weird. Language in general is a very peculiar thing. It is just grunts and sounds arranged in a particular pattern or sequence that we have all collectively agreed has some sort of meaning. English in particular is complex and hard to learn as in it’s……read more

MET Gala 2019

I know this is a little late but I had to do a post about this year’s MET Gala. Every year the beautiful and the rich get together in an extravagant display of excess and wealth for…some reason. They choose a theme, people prepare, they make a scene, and stop for lots and lots of…read more

Some Stuff

As you know, I stopped posting for over a year and started again just recently. But during that time it wasn’t that I was not writing, I just didn’t complete anything that I wrote. Currently I have 18 draft posts just sitting there waiting to be re-examined and maybe posted. Well this is one of…read more

Bad Trek

The last post I wrote for this blog before I went on a ridiculously long break was about Star Trek Discovery. The show had just started, airing the first 2 episodes which created and destroyed the world I thought this story was to take place in. I had enjoyed the episodes but because I hadn’t……read more

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

Stop Living in the Past

Nostalgianoun a sentimental longing or wistful affection for the past, typically for a period or place with happy personal association something done or presented in order to evoke feelings of nostalgia I get why nostalgia sells. For the most part it just makes people feel good. It is a familiarity taking you back to a…read more

Finally

So you know how I was complaining that I wasted my money going to see the new Street Fighter movie? Well I went out to see another movie this weekend. I finally got to see Coraline. I have to… …more

WTF?

Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li I don’t know how a studio, directors, actors, and writers can come together to create a blatantly obvious piece of crap and release it to the public. This movie is bad. From the opening credits as in the effects in the credits are bad, to the closing credits… …more

In Anticipation

I am currently in the midst of reading Watchmen. You know the greatest graphic of all time that will soon be released as a movie that will possibly be the greatest superhero movie of all time. Usually I wouldn’t do that. If a… …more

Boredom

My mind wanders a lot when I am bored. I don’t really day dream in the usual girly way about frolicking in fields, that new pair of Gucci shoes, or the new mail boy in the office but my mind does come up with some weird crap to entertain itself. Like, I was informed by……read more

You can do that but please don’t do that

Musical artists like doing cover songs because either it simply has a beat/sound that they love or they want to pay tribute to another artist/band that has had a major influence on them. Some people do it right and some people do it horribly wrong. Let’s look at a few. Covers that are better… …more

Is this what love is?

This is my attempt at writing something about love. I wrote it a couple of years ago and I know it is not the greatest but I like it. I have a soft spot for it. I think it is appropriate for this time of year. Enjoy. Is this what love is? I… …more

Thanks for the chocolate. You can leave now.

“I know it is not Valentine’s Day yet but I already feel more cynical than usual.” * “It is a money making ploy that is perpetrated by the money hungry capitalist empires and is situated right in the middle of chocolate season.” * “All the public displays of affection are just nauseating. There… …more

An Evening with …

I have been working on this piece since Sunday. Why? Because this week I was not writing a movie review. The movie I saw on Friday was Push and it was a complete waste of time, talent, and a great concept. The way the film was put together was sloppy and incredibly boring. The movie……read more

It makes the world go ’round

I haven’t taught you guys anything in a while so because of the current economic turmoil I thought I would teach you a little something about money. Pay your taxes You know the phrase “Pay through the nose”? I think it is a little misleading. It really should be “Pay with the nose”… …more

Whose business is it anyway?

Michael Phelps. Well I guess you know what I’m talking about. Can I just say that I have heard enough about this man already, I know – he smoked marijuana, but seriously who cares? I mean other than the lazy ass people who would rather have their children look up to someone else as a……read more
