    The Anime Expo was awesome!!

    The Anime Expo was awesome!!

    During this Pandemic, I am using my time to write my graphic novel, and since I can’t draw, I take a lot of photos and use them as references to send to my artist. While scrolling through my phone, I came across a picture of my husband and me when we went to the anime expo in 2019. I enjoy anime. I love the Content of the stories of the show or manga (Japanese comics). The characters and the design of the characters, and let us not forget the backstories on what inspired the creators. One style of anime, in particular, I not only found great ideas in storytelling I just got in is called Yaoi (it is Boy Love or guy on guy interaction) I remember getting ready to go to the event because it was my first time dressing up to go to the event. My costume was Noiz (Noise) from a Yaoi computer game/anime called Dramatical murder. FYI Dramatical murder is a science fiction and visual romance novel in which players assume the role of the protagonist named Aoba Seragaki. ( I won’t get into detail about it, if you want to know about it, just look it up on google.) Anyway, it was amazing to see so many people dressed up as their favorite characters from other anime shows. There were so many games that were being promoted, new animes in development, and gadgets. There were crowds of people going to booths of memorabilia, getting food, some people would get into character and act out a scene of the show their role was from. It was so exciting. I would take a lot of photos not just to post on social media, but to use as a reference because after we left the anime expo, I went home and got started on my Yaoi Graphic Novel.

    The Two Season Death Sentence: Only 15% of Netflix Originals Have Been Renewed for a Season 3

    The Two Season Death Sentence: Only 15% of Netflix Originals Have Been Renewed for a Season 3

    It is safe to say that in the past decade, Netflix has created an online entertainment empire. With over 3000 movie titles available in most regions (and new ones being added every day), as well as around 700 Netflix Original series (so not even including the ones they licence from other networks), there is certainly no slowing down for the streaming giant.

    Art Movements Diary: Impressionism

    Art Movements Diary: Impressionism

    Born in 1874 by a group of young artists in Paris who were exasperated by the recurring rejection of their works from the official Salon, Impressionism was controversially perceived with intense humiliation in its fledgling days. Thirty disaffected painters, pioneered by Claude Monet, decided to independently organise their own exhibition so as to display their novel ideals on art to the general public. Their work was greeted with both curiosity and scepticism by the public and utter disdain from the popular press. As the bullseye of the scrutiny, Monet's painting Impression, Sunrise (c.1872) sparkled a mocking critic with a name for the group that stuck: "Impressionists".

    5 Things "The Office" Has Taught Me About Life

    If you're anything like me, you don't need to be in quarantine to be on your 100th run-through of the great family classic The Office (US). I have to admit, though, it wasn’t until about three years ago that I watched this series for the very first time, so I was a bit late to the party. But you know something? I am eternally grateful that I didn’t see this show when I was growing up, because I know I would never have appreciated it the way I do now.

    The COVID-19 Pandemic is continuing to take a toll on daytime television, but one veteran actor is willing to move forward without delay. The Young and the Restless stopped taping new episodes in March and are now showing older classic programs. It's rumored that the CBS daytime drama might start up production again in June, which indicates that viewers would see fresh programming in August. According to Soap Dirt there are more changes coming that both the cast as well as the fans might need to brace themselves for. Eric Braeden who portrays Victor Newman has announced that he is ready, willing, and able, to go back to work, but the choice may not be his to make.

    Pre-Quarantine Moments: Fayetteville, AR Comic Show

    In case you haven’t noticed, a majority of conventions, not only here in this country, but in other contries, have other been postponed to later in the year, summer, or cancelled altogether. I’ve recently asked cosplayers on my social media pages if they felt comfortable or nervous about attending a con this year. A large number of people said that they’re mostly concerned about bad hygiene from others. I’ve been a cosplayer for about six years and I’m really big on hygiene. I make sure that I take a shower before attending a convention and taking another one when I get home from one. In my opinion, hygiene is something that all cons should address and there should be strict rules about that to prevent others from getting sick. Also, they should have social distancing measures implemented. I’m confident of attending a con this year, but doing it safely and responsibly.

    Longing to enter the world of reading once more

    One of the last things my family did prior the being forced to shelter in place was to go to the local library. We consider the library our second home and go there several times a week, at least we did. I can’t count the number of times I caught myself almost going to the library before I remembered I could not because of the pandemic. My three grandchildren were already being home schooled so we could go most anytime we chose. At the library they found books to read, played video games and used the computer. On Tuesdays there were special programs for the younger children, like puppet shows, crafts, and other special events.

    Is YouTuber Lillee Jean promoting pedophilia to underage fans?

    YouTube vlogger Lillee Jean Trueman is no stranger to controversy. She is most notably known for allegedly purchasing most of her Instagram following, as well as some of her YouTube fans. If you've followed this internet celebrity at all over the past few months, you're probably well-aware of the antics of her and her momager Laur Trueman. From censoring bloggers and threatening people on social media, the mother-daughter-duo is quite a team -- such a team that it's hard to tell who's doing a better job of ruining Lillee's reputation. If you thought the follower-fiasco was bad, the latest news in Lillee Jean's saga is downright shocking. Now the young YouTuber is being accused of promoting child-adult romance to the few authentic fans that she has -- many of which are presumably underage.

    The Devaluing of Literature by the Digitization of Books

    The Devaluing of Literature by the Digitization of Books

    The rise of e-books is something that is already impacting the world of literature. The digitization of books is devaluing literature because it is taking money out of the pocket of professional authors. It allows nonprofessionals to publish work at the same value as a professional, and also makes it to where you can buy a classic piece of literature for less than its worth. Though digital books are easily accessible and more affordable, they put a negative look on classic literature. In this digital world, we now live in, everything can be found and bought online. Not having to go out and wait in a line is appealing. However, thinking about this from an author’s perspective, e-books hurt their royalties. Buying a digital version is much cheaper than buying the hardcover or paperback book.

    ‘The Vast of Night’ Slowly Burns to a Big Finish

    In small-town New Mexico in the 1950s, teen switchboard operator Fay and radio DJ Everett discover a strange audio frequency and they decide to investigate, which leads to them finding some terrifying history of their town as well as some potentially life-changing discoveries. The Vast of Night takes on an urban legend feel throughout. It hardly put me on the edge of my seat, but that chilling feel was gripping enough to stay until the end.

Her very being bespeaks a menacing intelligence so present it could bite. Shirley is portrayed here as being so quick witted that she could kill with words.

    Why 'The Lighthouse' is a Cinematic Masterpiece

    Why 'The Lighthouse' is a Cinematic Masterpiece

    One of the greatest travesties in recent film history has to be the fact that, despite career-best performances from both actors, neither Pattinson nor Dafoe were nominated for an acting Oscar for Robert Eggers' second feature film 'The Lighthouse'. Watching it for the first time earlier this year, the film quickly raced to the top half of my all-time favourite films list, and I have spent a good deal of time turning it over in my mind. It is certainly a thought-provoking picture, and one that will stick with you, perhaps because it is unlike anything else put to celluloid. I was therefore outraged when it barely featured in the 2020 Academy Awards' list of nominations, only picking up a measly nod for Sound Mixing.

    Why I dropped 'Listeners'

    Listeners is a show that I was excited about as a result of it having been produced by MAPPA, who has produced some of my favourite anime in the past few years. Compounding onto that is the fact that it's core is centred around music, just like their previous outing with Shinichiro Watanabe's Carole and Tuesday. As it was with Carole and Tuesday, Listeners is an original story that was created by the musician Jin. This was definitely on the top end of my list when it came to anticipation, and after watching the first episode I was left very underwhelmed.

As viewers know, Dina is dying from Alzheimer's disease so there will be no miracle cure. On the few occasions she has been seen in General City this past year, she is usually silent and unaware.
