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

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

Quantum of Solace

This movie has the stupidest title since Never Say Never Again (if you count that one) but has the best story since, well, the last one. Now there are many reviewers out there that don’t seem to like the film. I am really not sure why. There are good action sequences, ok plot, fair… …more

A Little Random

Just listen. Voice mail I hope you enjoyed that. Nel… …more

Poetry Corner

So, sometimes people question me as to whether Cory or Tra are as talented as I say or they just poseur hacks. To them I say, “Not really, ask me again in a few minutes …” However, time and time again when I have thought about why exactly I think they are so talented… …more
