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.

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

Product placement

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

Writers Block?

What can I say? When we started out with the idea of a blog it was great, like we had so much to say although when it comes right down to writing it. I can’t. I try to think of things that have some importance or semblance of sanity but am I trying to hard?……read more

It’s a Pain Alright.

Max Payne I don’t know what made me think this was going to be a good movie. Video game movies have a horrible track record of being complete crap. There is a long list of these movies including Resident Evil, Street Fighter, and Doom. This movie didn’t fail to disappoint. For those of… …more
