A Primer on Theater Etiquette

I’ve seen Black Panther four times. I haven’t been able to fully enjoy the experience during any of those four screenings. People on their phones, talking loudly amongst themselves, moving around… It seems as if we’ve forgotten what it means to go to the theater. It’s different than watching a movie at home. You’re not…


January, Winter Blues

The month draws to a close. Last week, it was nearly fifty degrees everyday. Today, last time I checked, it was 22. Perfect sinus infection incubation weather. I’m grateful that, so far, I haven’t contracted one, knock wood. I have, however, seemed to have contracted a slight case of the winter blues. I slept until…


My Hollywood Rant

I found out today that the guys who worked on Deadpool want to remake the 1980s classic Clue, only starring Ryan Reynolds. Now, I’ll admit, I’m a bit biased. I LOVE Clue. It features one of the greatest ensemble casts of the era: Tim Curry, Madeline Kahn, Eileen Brennan, Michael McKean, Martin Mull, Leslie Ann Warren,…


Storytelling

This was my lunch yesterday: Leftover fajita chicken, sauteed onions and orange peppers, on a pile of mixed greens with light ranch. I’m actually not one of those who takes pictures of my food, but it was so good, I couldn’t stop myself. This is one of just many changes to my diet that I’m…


The New Year

Autumn heralds the season of decay; winter devours all that is green and bright. But we know that (hopefully, barring a major war and the subsequent nuclear winter), life will return, and the seasons, in places that have seasons, will begin their cycle anew with the spring. But why the heck does it have to…


Expert in Reverse II

Staring at the ceiling. An ant crawls quickly around the knots in the wood paneling. The knots form faces, characters from which I draw inspiration. I stare into the eyes of the glass skull bottle, pondering death while Alice Cooper tells me about some folks and I worry I’m not a writer. Not an artist….


Added a Tumblr

So I’ve got a Tumblr now. It’s more than likely mostly gonna be Sims stuff, random video game stuff, goth stuff, and other miscellaneous etcetera, but there it is. These posts will be shared there, so if you follow on Tumblr, you’ll still know everything I post. Lucky you, right? 😛 May start a Pinterest…


Pet Parenthood

Everybody, I’d like you to meet Liam. Liam is a thirteen-year-old Australian Shepherd/Labrador mix. He was a gift from my parents on my 16th birthday. He is the sweetest dog in the world. And I consider him my baby. Wait, hold on. I know that some people think. They think that dogs are dogs and children…


Birthday Time!

It’s my birthday! 8D I can’t believe I’m 29 years old… it’s so strange that I’m fast approaching the fourth decade of my life. There are some days when I feel like I’m never going to “amount to anything”, and there are some where I feel the vast potential of pre-high school, before the battle…


May Day! May Day!

Wow. I just woke up. Mondays are like that, aren’t they? Except that today is awesome, because it’s May 1st! I used to go around with my mom and sister on May Day and drop off May baskets to family. Sometimes I really miss that. Other times, I think about how early we got up…
