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

Purple Valentine

I haven’t been doing my nails much this year. It is a combination of lack of time and tired/laziness. My polish collection is still steadily getting larger (thanks Julep) but I have not been putting them to good use. This week I put an end to that. Had a perusal of my plethora of… …more

Ahhh….ya know Part 3

And, we’re back… I’ve also been watching a lot of TV. The fall season has begun with the return of some favourites and the start of some brand new highly anticipated shows. Here’s what I’ve been watching. Gotham I really… …more

Ahhh….ya know Part 2

And so it continues… I got a rabbit. It is not the most usual of pets but it was sort of thrust upon me. I have been wanting to get a pet for a while, a dog really (I had been hemming and hawing about that for a good year), and I just hadn’t… …more

Ahhh….ya know

Stuff. That is what I have been up to. Nothing overly exciting or extravagant or mind blowing. The last few weeks have been me getting on with things and just doing stuff. In all the time since I last posted I only did my nails once. I am very disappointed in myself about… …more

Haven’t Done this in a while

I have not done my nails in 2 months…2! Can you believe that? They have been free to breath, soak up some sunshine, and simply be well. I had to put an end to that when I got my Julep box this month. That had 2 new polishes in it to add to my 4……read more

Guess what I did this weekend.

Guess what I did this weekend. That’s right. Took in the sights and spent all my moneys. I complained about how the summer wasn’t the best but on a day that looked like this …more

Watching, looking, listening

Summer in Toronto this year hasn’t been particularly great. It has been cool (as in temp), rainy, and generally over cast. This is bad for BBQ’s (a couple I was invited to had to be cancelled), street festivals, and picnics. On days that were good, like today – blue skys and sunshine, I managed to……read more

Art of story telling

This weekend, in the midst of contemplating my future, I began to miss the simplicity of the past. I woke up Saturday morning and did something I hadn’t done in a while. I sat down with my breakfast and watched cartoons. I didn’t go to Netflix, or YouTube, or magically acquire some other form… …more

Just another day

What is it about birthdays that make me kind of panic? They are just like every other day. Wake up, go to work, come home, eat dinner got to sleep. But today is my birthday and that somehow makes it different. This is what the view looked like last night. …more

Better late than never

I tend to start writing articles and not finish them. I get interrupted, lose my train of thought, and never get back to it. I was going through them today and there is some interesting things in there that I thought I should still share. X-Files …more
