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

Cracks in the Glass

Last weekend I went out to the theatre to see a movie. It had been a month and a half since I’d had the pleasure of fold down chairs, loud chewers, and the smell of stale popcorn. My friend and I showed up without having decided what we were going to see as it was……read more

What’s going on

Over the last, almost, year and a half, life seems to have run away from me. Not because I was doing so much but really because I could do so little. I have gone through some things in the last while that have made it difficult for me to create and articulate. But in recent times I……read more

Not sure Yet

Not Sure Yet Last weekend, with much fanfare and anticipation, “Star Trek Discovery” premiered. Before the first 2 episodes of the show aired, quite a few of my friends were adamant in finding out what my… …more

Real or Made-up?

Real or Made-Up? When I was a kid I was intrigued by makeup. I would stand by my mother, her hair in curlers as she applied powders, creams, and colours, getting ready for the day. I wanted to do the same. Despite dabbing a little lipstick on my lips and brushing a… …more

Best of the Worst

Best of the Worst As a movie goer and avid comic reader, it has been clear to me for a long time that there is a problem with the DC cinematic universe. Since the horrendous Batman Forever where producers insisted on veering away from the dark humour that is Tim Burton, they… …more

Like Sands through the Hour Glass

As the years fly by the New Year gets to be more precious as it brings with it a certain hope that things will get better. New chances, a new beginning, remember the past and learn from your mistakes. Most everyone lives for the future, thinking that today will take care of itself and… …more

No Resolve

Well, it is a new year. The fireworks have been set off, food has been eaten, drinks have been drunk, the clock ticked, or possibly tocked, and a new year has begun. All of a sudden everyone is asking, “What’s you new years resolution?” This is always a tough question to answer. I am… …more

It Was nice to have met you

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button In the last few weeks I haven’t written any movie reviews. This isn’t because I haven’t seen any movies but because there was nothing that I have seen that moved me to write one. The movies I have seen in the last while have been either mediocre or… …more

Missing Link

This email tete-a-tete occurred between Tra and Cory for the posts you are reading below. Now if I weren’t out of town – this would have been an entirely different conversation. How? Observe – Tra: The season has us slacking on the blog. We will be disappointing our readers. But I wrote up a… …more

Time to Shove, Time to Glare

Christmas, Christmas time is here Time for joy and time for cheer Those are the words sung by those loveable rodents who like to lie! Joy and Cheer this time of year? I think not. It should say something about pushing and shoving and fighting for a parking spot. Those words may have rung… …more

Friends, Romans, Countrymen lend me your Ears …!

So I can wimp, whine and complain. I just have to rant a little here. It’s my turn to complain. Those who know me well, know that I usually am a happy go lucky person who doesn’t really have a whole lot to complain about but I must say that I am getting very bored……read more

Just a Bit of Dialogue

I have been meaning to post some of my fiction for some time but I can’t bring myself to post any of it. For some reason I have a habit of being pretty depressive when I write. So I have decided to post some of my random dialogue. I do seem to be a bit

Place

May 08th, 2005 : Its been a complete day – since I arrived here and things couldn’t seem more bleak for the likes of me. From a lack of running water to the breezeless humidity to the peculiar stink and the droning sounds that never stop. I am quite literally in travel destination purgatory… …more

Painting With Light

This photo started out as an assignment – painting with light, and was taken off a picture hanging on my wall.  The only tools required were a pitch black room and a light source. I was thinking about using a flashlight for this but then tought better of it because the light would have been……read more

Sing Me A Song

Dido is ever the accomplished songstress – she has never vied for public attention or tried to achieve world domination in terms of popularity but her new record “Safe Trip Home” sparks frenzy in her fans around the world. Better still? She is critically aware of what it is that she is good at musically……read more
