    Baby Driver (2017) Review

    Baby Driver (2017) Review

    From the director that brought you Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and Shaun of the Dead, brings you one of the most high-octane movies of 2017, Baby Driver. This movie is a breath of fresh air in a world of high budget CGI laden blockbusters. With a budget of $34 million, this movie has done more than any other in a long time. It kept me invested until the end.

    When You Realize That You Are the 'And Then' Guy in a Relationship

    When You Realize That You Are the 'And Then' Guy in a Relationship

    During the thirty-seven years on this planet that I’ve been alive, I’ve only been in about four major relationships. Last night, at work, I was using a ride-on scrubber and cleaning the store that I am employed at. I started reflecting on them. Low and behold, I came upon the realization that I am a "And Then" person: i.e., the transitional person that makes a woman realize that she wants someone better and finds them.

    Harry Potter Fanfiction: Headcannon Vs. Fannon.

    Harry Potter Fanfiction: Headcannon Vs. Fannon.

    Harry Potter is a great series, with an epic-sized fanbase. Of course, with any fandom, there are fans that want to extend the stories through materials such as fan art and fanfiction. With most things, there is a bunch of shorthand that seems to be a language of its own. Some examples are 'head cannon' and 'fanon.' Head cannon is something that you as the reader make up as you read a book. Stuff like coming up with little backstories of secondary characters that don't get much 'screen time' in the book, and explanations for plot holes in the stories that just never get resolved. On the other hand, fanon is something akin to what fans establish in fanfiction that repeats in other stories. Harry Potter is so accessible to fans that everything from fan art, fan fiction, and heck even things like Wizard Rock bands have cropped up during the height of the popularity of Harry Potter. I am going to focus on aspects of fanfiction for Harry Potter.
