Train him for the games… let him hope for a while… and blow him away

I’m hard at work writing the last half of Electric Angels, a story I hope to put into my short story collection for my graduate thesis. I’m down to the wire as it’s due tomorrow, technically. I really hate procrastinating but I work better under pressure. Don’t judge me! Instead of a regular entry, today…

Today is our Independence Day!

In the spirit of freedom, I leave you with a very famous scene from one of my favorite fictional American presidents, Bill Pullman as President Thomas J. Whitmore in Independence Day. This movie is on the list of films that shaped my childhood. I watched it every damn time it came on the movie channels.…

Inside Out (2015)

I had the pleasure of purchasing the opportunity to see the Fathom Event of Disney/Pixar’s Inside Out via a special link through D23. I saw it on Tuesday, June 16, a full three days before the weekend premiere. I really enjoy Fathom Events. It also helps that I live 6 minutes down the street from…

Snowpiercer (2013), John Wick: Chapter 1 (2014)

I’m just now getting over my crimson wave. I’ve been so zonked. I’ve been pigging out – well, more than normal – so now that I’m done, I’m back on track. I hope. I got back into Headspace, which for me, is a big accomplishment. I’ve started putting reminders on my phone as well. Habits…

Mystery of the Wax Museum (1933) / House of Wax (1953)

I decided to do a double feature of the original Mystery of the Wax Museum and its 50s remake, House of Wax. Mystery is a fun 30s romp… on the surface. I really only wanted to watch it because of Fay Wray. She’s my girl. It was a suspenseful thriller, and it hooks you from…

Suspiria (1977)

Suspiria crashed into my heart like a trainwreck and I refused to look away. It basically combines my biggest fears: dogs that attack their owners (I love dogs so much, how could they ever hate me enough to take my life?), maggots (I’m a clean freak and if I saw a maggot, I would lose…
