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

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

Complaining and More

There is something wrong with me. I am on vacation and I am hating it. I seem to have turned into one of those people that does nothing but bitch and moan about men. Actually about the lack of men in my life. I don’t know I think I am just lonely. I have spent……read more

Kind of Dripping Into Each other

I did my nails this week! Hands and feet in the same style just different colours. It is the first time I tried this and I think it came out pretty good. Let’s start with the hands. …more

Let them fight

It has been a little while since I saw a movie on the opening weekend and it showed because I made a rookie move. I went to see Godzilla showing up at the theatre 20mins before showtime and expected to get a seat. What is wrong with me? Well it was the final episode of……read more
