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… …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… …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… …more

Film Analysis

So I have had a pretty boring day at work today. Things are slow, it is raining, and everyone just seems to be a bit lethargic. Maybe they are recovering from their epic weekends. Because of this, I have been perusing the interwebs and fallen into watching film analysis videos. As a person who loves… …more

Beautifully Bland

Beautifully Bland A problem that seems prevalent in a world where the technology is advancing faster than people learning how to properly utilise it, is that you get absolutely beautiful films rich in colour, texture, and wonder that lack story, intensity, and gravitas. The films often fall flat… …more

An Argument Against Binge Watching

An Argument Against Binge Watching With the advent of easily acquired content people tend to binge on visual media. Specifically TV shows and sometimes movie franchises. People will sit for 10 or 15 hours straight watching the new season of a show… …more

Perfect End

Perfect End I am going to start by saying this is a review of Logan and there will be spoilers. This hasn’t been an issue for a long time since I have been excessively lackadaisical about posting my reviews. But since the movie just came out on Friday… …more

We’ve still got nothing in Common

We’ve still got nothing in Common A Retro Review I had never seen Breakfast At Tiffany’s until recently and I gotta say I didn’t like it. Sacrilege! I know. It is a movie that has been praised for being a… …more

Christmas in NYC

Over this past Christmas I went for a short, pleasant trip across the border to New York. Well, really, New Jersey but New York was just a train ride away. I have been to the Big Apple many times in my life as my aunt lives there and growing up it was an excuse… …more

Going Rogue

Going Rogue On a cold, dreary, Friday the 13th, the second Friday of 2017, I am sitting at work waiting. Waiting for people to finish their job so I can begin mine. I am running out of ways to look busy while everyone else around me looks to be swamped. I flip… …more

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

Voicemail Act 2

Just in case, you needed confirmation that Tra and Cory are truly special people, the evidence is mounting. No, really! First, some context for this clip (trust me, you’d need it regardless to able to appropriately appreciate the insanity). Project runway season 4 introduced the world to winner Christian Siriano whose antics and slogans and……read more

I’m Done

I don’t know why I do it. Over and over on a Tuesday night I sit and watch or listen to Fringe. I am simply torturing myself. I think my problem is that I have been hoping for a replacement for The X-Files and trust… …more

Can we hear something else?

I don’t listen to the radio much anymore. I love the Flow morning radio show and I indulge myself for about an hour of it on the way to work. The only other time I listen is at work where they have it on in the background some days at a level that usually I……read more

A light in the Window

The light in the window was comforting; it was a tradition of his childhood that he couldn’t easily give up. That was until he reached the door and crossed the threshold. There was something uneasy about the shadows. They seemed somehow … denser, darker, almost like a tangible presence ready to lunge rather than a……read more

A not so terrible thing happened.

You may or may not agree with this, however, last night it snowed for the first time this season and although it slowed down my drive home it wasn’t terrible. I got in the car and turned on the music and just rode the slow wave home. As I get older I’m learning to… …more

I like to move it, move it?

How fast does grass grow? Well from what I have found searching the internet it grows 2-6in a week. In metric that converts to about 5-15cm a week. There is such a huge gap because there are many varying factors that affect the speed of the grass going. There is temperature, humidity, precipitation, amount… …more

Jinx or not to jinx – that is the superstition.

I’m not a big believer in superstitions, but sometimes coincidences are just too coincidental. Yesterday I was talking to a friend of mine and she was talking about her car (she totally bit my style and got the same one as me) which she bought only about 2 months ago. Well her tire pressure gauge……read more
