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

I am the walrus

I have been a fan of Kevin Smith for many years. I first encountered his brand of fun crude story telling accidentally while perusing the shelves of a video store (remember those?) looking for something entertaining to fill an afternoon. Over the years he has stuck with his writing style but has decided to …more

Bright little piggies

This weekend marks the official beginning of summer. That means shorts, tanks, skirts and most importantly sandals. That also means I have to step up my pedicure awesomeness. Sandal weather started a few weeks ago so I have managed to do 2 new looks so far. They are both very bright graphic designs. I often……read more

Well, it’s here….

Blockbuster season! It is in full swing as we are about a month in and I have been spending some quality time at the theatre. I have also been spending some time in front of the TV watching some new-ish new-to-me flicks so I have quite a bit to go over today. …more

Stuff on TV

I have also been watching a lot of TV. Well I never stop watching TV. I am glad I was born in a time of TV cuz I don’t know how I would have functioned without it. I am still very much a classic TV watcher as I still like to watch shows when they……read more

Stuff on Screen

Ok so I did that thing again where I watched a whole lot of stuff but didn’t tell you about it. I know I don’t have to but I want to. It saves you from having to wade through all the crap that is out there and it allows me to do 2 things that……read more

Happy Tum Tum

In recent times I have found myself kind of bored with the regular eating establishments that I frequent. It is not that the food or service has diminished in any way, it is that I feel for something different, something exciting, just something new. So, I have been heading out to places that I… …more

Graphic novels

In the last little while I have been trying my best to avoid the comic book store. It just gets to be too expensive. I walk in there thinking I am here for one things, until I reach the door I am focused on my specific task. But then I open the door and I……read 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
