Comfort Food

When life is hard, I have a habit of wanting to go back to a simpler time, when things were easy. When smiles, laughter, contentment didn’t have to be worked for and nothing was in the way of just enjoying life. The thing that allows me to do that, in the most economical way, is…read more

Simple Premise, Hard to Explain

I have been staring at a blank page for about half an hour trying to figure out how to write about the show High Maintenance. It is not an easy show to convey even though it has a pretty simple premise. IMDB put it most succinctly: A comedy that explores the private lives of unique New…read more

Bird Course

Friends From College is a show with a simple premise; you follow the shenanigans of a group of 6 close friends that have known each other since college and the people around them that interact with this friendship. The second season of the show came out early this year to little/no fanfare (none that I saw anyways)……read more

What have I learned

I first heard about the Netflix show Sex Education simply because Gillian Anderson was in it and my friends thought I should know because of my “obsession” with The X-Files. I read a synopsis of the show which sounded a little silly, kinda run of the mill, but there was definitely a possibility of fun……read more

Are Diamonds Forever?

Do you want to know why most men believe they need to spend 2-3 months salary on an engagement ring and why some women still believe they should hold their would-be husbands to that standard? Well, you can blame De Beers. Before the late 1930’s relatively few people bought diamond engagement rings. People… …more

Cracks in the Glass

Last weekend I went out to the theatre to see a movie. It had been a month and a half since I’d had the pleasure of fold down chairs, loud chewers, and the smell of stale popcorn. My friend and I showed up without having decided what we were going to see as it was……read more

What’s going on

Over the last, almost, year and a half, life seems to have run away from me. Not because I was doing so much but really because I could do so little. I have gone through some things in the last while that have made it difficult for me to create and articulate. But in recent times I……read more

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 in finding out what my… …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 brushing a… …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 Burton, they… …more

New-ish Music

A little while ago I decided that my music collection needed something new. I went out to the local music repository and bought, yes with hard earned cash (plastic counts, right?), some CDs. I know it is an archaic medium now but every once in a while I like something tangible to show that I……read more

21 Films

Even though I have not been posting about it I have still been watching a lot of movies. Bad, good, or mediocre I can’t seem to get enough cinematic entertainment. Since the last time I did reviews I have seen 21 new films, as far as I can remember, and for the most part they……read more

Failing Miserably…

…at a lot of things but really posting to this blog. I have no excuses, I just haven’t been doing it. Go ahead, gasp away (stop before you faint) but it won’t change anything. But now I am back, here to enlighten you about my goings on. Hmmm….so what’s been up with me? I… …more

Swirling Colours

No I haven’t gotten around to posting those movie reviews yet. I know you are waiting with bated breathe for them but you will have to wait a little longer. The problem is the list keeps getting longer and longer. I am up to 12 movies already and, especially in the coming weeks, I expect……read more

4 weeks, 1 post

So it took me a while to get into doing posts as well as my nails this year. I just wasn’t in the mood especially with all my existential angst and turmoil. But I was still getting nail polish from that nail club I oined online (the best and worst thing to ever happen to……read more

They did it in Style (mostly)

The Oscars was on this weekend and I watched (almost) the whole thing. I mean preshow, the red carpet, and of course the ceremony, all of the watching. It wasn’t all that spectacular. It was nice, sparkly, people were dressed well for the most part but nothing blew my mind. I actually miss the big……read more

Mental

It has taken me a long time to get into writing this year (I can’t believe we are already into the 8th week of the year). It is not that I didn’t have anything to say, it was that I had a lot to say and just didn’t know where to begin. There were… …more

Ice and Sparkle

This Christmas Toronto and the surrounding areas were “treated” to an ice storm. There were power outages, dangerous driving conditions, and fridgid weather. I was luckier than some in that I managed to stay warm, made it to my destinations safely, and my lights did not go out. Even though many did have an… …more

What I have watched in recent-ish times

This year I have been absolutely horrible with keeping you up-to-date on my movie viewing. It is a combination of binge watching (Thanks NetFlix), being busy, and laziness. I have only given you my opinion of a small handfull of the movies I have been watching. Yes it is true that some are new (or……read more

I’m gonna make it there

This morning I woke up to this Snowing, -12, with the windchill of -21 degrees Celsius. It was not inviting at all. But alas I was forced to shower, dress, and go out in this. I really shouldn’t complain, I went… …more
