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

Thought of Food

Thought of Food When living alone one of the hardest things to do is staying fed without going broke or getting scurvy. A lot of people have an issue with that not because they do not want to eat properly but because they lack the skills necessary to make food they enjoy and… …more

Better on Screen

Better On Screen Years ago after finding out about my love of comics my cousins told me about one called “Preacher”. They raved about it, insisting I check it out. Based on their description though, which wasn’t much as it was to be experienced, I didn’t follow through. It just didn’t seem to… …more

Another Sci-Fi Film

Another Sci-Fi Film Star Trek has been a staple in my life for a very long time. At a young age I was introduced to the Original series but it wasn’t until Star Trek: The Next Generation (TNG) came along did I fell in love the show and the concepts. I avidly… …more

Nails and Stuff

I can’t believe it has been almost a year since I wrote any Nailed it! posts. That is so, so wrong. Good news though, I have still been slapping on the polish making sure the finger and toes (mostly toes) look good. I have to say they have been looking mighty fine. I’ve been using……read more

Catching Up

Catching Up Even though the weather has been getting better, all blue skies and warm weather, I have been staying in to catch up on some TV I have missed the last little while. No, I am not talking GoT (totally up-to-date on this!) but here is some other stuff… …more

Reading out loud

Reading Out Loud You may have noticed that I have been updating the site. After doing the site for the last 8 years, it has pretty much stayed the same with the exception of some banner changes, seasonal back ground changes (when I remember), and changes in column width. I was… …more

Civil War and the MCU

Civil War and the MCU The first comic book I ever bought was X-Man #13. I was in The World’s Biggest Bookstore milling around in the periodicals section waiting for my father to… …more

Miss Pebbles

Miss Pebbles Last Wednesday morning I was startled awake by my phone ringing. Barely conscious I frantically pawed at my side table, eyes closed, looking for my phone. Groggily I said hello. Apologetically my mother asked if she woke me. It was clear she did but I told her not to worry… …more

DC Still Failing it’s Cinematic Universe

Due to my location, a holiday, and sheer laziness, I did not see Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice  on opening day. I was also not in that much of a rush as the last DC movie was not something to write home about. But the trailer did a good job of creating hype. But that……read more
