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

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
