Writing forces me to examine my views as cold words on a page.
My views are borne out of my experiences on this world.
My experiences are slowly adding to the short story that is my life.
While I still can, I choose to share some for anyone who might find them useful, or perhaps just entertaining.

===>>> SPOILERS AHEAD <<<=== As much as I often sound like a snobbish movie reviewer, I yearn — yearn, I tell you — for good entertainment. Every year, the film industry takes a wack at making me happy . . … Continue reading
I haven’t done movie reviews in a while. Wanna know why? It’s the same ole story. Most new movies are vapid efforts concentrating more on CGI than characters, on action more than plot. I don’t know if it’s my advancing … Continue reading
Since January, I’ve averaged exactly twelve (12) posts per month. That is a huge drop from years past. In 2015, for instance, my average was more than one post a day and that’s when I was working. It’s not just … Continue reading
My previous post brought to light complaints — mostly from ex-readers of this blog — regarding my propensity for lengthy, boring, unfocused, and ‘did I mention boring?’ posts. Well, as I’m about to embark on yet another NaNoWriMo journey, it … Continue reading
This is my “don’t feel like doing jack liquid effluent” post . . . a bit of this, a bit of that. Let me start by mentioning Lao Tzu . . . he sure said a lot of things. It … Continue reading
Believe it or not, we went to the theater and saw a movie. We rarely go but when we do Thursday is the day of the week because there are few other people, especially at the first showing. OK, here’s the … Continue reading
In a rare personal excursion away from the safety of our home, we ventured out to our local Hollywood theater to see the non-3D version of Guardians of the Galaxy. I try not to read reviews and opinions before I … Continue reading
I hesitated writing this review . . . I know someone who really liked the movie. “Epic”, she called it; better than waffles, even. However, I must speak my truth, and maybe have some fun in the process. Fair warning; … Continue reading
Both Elysium and Kick-Ass 2 are 2013 movies that had a long time between when they opened in theaters and when the DVDs were released. Add the contractual agreement of a one month delay Netflix has with some of the … Continue reading
We don’t go to movies often, but the trailer for “I, Frankenstein” looked a cut above all the other stuff that’s in theaters right now, and I thought we’d splurge, go sit in a crowded movie theater, and share with … Continue reading
I’m a bit pissed-off about these next two movies . . . I really, really wanted them to be good, to become part of our small stable of go-to movies. Movies Melisa and I choose from when we need to … Continue reading
Movies . . . there be so few that capture my interest that it’s sad when even those few do little more than disappoint me. Now, I could say I’m writing this as a service to others who might be … Continue reading
We went to a movie theater yesterday . . . we, and 4 other people, watched Pacific Rim. Those were not friends; they were the rest of the audience for the first showing of the day. We had the choice … Continue reading
Cognitive Dissonance – The state of having inconsistent thoughts, beliefs, or attitudes, esp. as relating to behavioral decisions and attitude change. Sounds impressive, but it’s simple really; people will ignore anything contradicting their position or opinion, and readily accept anything … Continue reading
Someone recently reminded me of a new offering by Joss Whedon . . . the movie Much Ado About Nothing. Hearkening back to his Dr. Horrible Sing-Along Blog effort, this is another of Joss’s “I am bored; let’s do something” … Continue reading
