My Review of "The Fifth Element"
The Fifth Element is kind of a nostalgic classic movie to me. I was around 17 at the time of the movie first came out and I guess I was pretty much the demographic this movie was aiming for. It definitely shows this through some of the sequences in this movie that didn't age particularly well. Now in 2021, I've bought this movie probably the 3rd time in yet another video format, 4k Blu-ray.
What Fulfills Me
This is a good question. The answer is something. I'm not quite sure, but it is not any one single subject. I have a whole bunch of interests. One of them is writing.
Which is better? I have been going back and forth about returning to an Apple iPhone, get the Apple watch, an iPad and a MacBook pro. I currently have a Samsung Galaxy Note 10, which I love. I love my pink, gold, and white phone case and the pen or should I say stylus that comes with it. I do everything on my phone. Checking social media. Running my business and managing orders. I am creating collages from the photos I take and even found an app to draw so that I can make my designs for my business. When it concerns any of the gaming apps. . .I usually pick ones where I am getting rewarded points towards Amazon or PayPal. As for tablets, I currently use my Kindle and that is just to read my digital books. My laptop is not a Samsung, but a Dell. It does its job. All my other electronics are Samsung: tv, washer, dryer, microwave, refrigerator, stove, and yes, the dishwasher too.
Bad Dog Learns New Tricks
When you just say “yes” to moving forward, you will be amazed at the path that unfolds before you. My passion is improvised comedy. It’s given me skills and confidence in both work and life but most of all, it’s given me joy even when life isn’t joyful. If you love the comedy of the likes of Tina Fey, Eugene Levy and Alan Arkin, chances are that you are someone who loves improv, too.
Taking 1 Word and Making 1000 Pictures
THE FIRST WORD WAS FORCE For my final GCSE Art project we were given the word “Force” and asked to create a final piece for our last ten hour exam. Art was a tough subject for me and had become tedious almost instantaneously. Between experiments with tools and methods I had no interest in, having to redraw the same image multiple times, overanalysing the works of dead painters and pretending like I knew if brush stroke pressure and excessive crosshatching held significant weight in determining the artists’ mental health. After two years, I had had it with the subject. The only project I felt semi-comfortable doing was this one because I was given the freedom to draw with whatever tool I wanted and use style inspiration from any artist I was interested in.
I've always loved movies. Growing up, movie theaters were my church. I worshipped at the altars of Lucas and Spielberg, Scorsese and Coppola, Altman and Ashby. As soon as I was old enough, I got my first job at Victor Video, an independent video store in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles. From when I started at 15 until I left four years later, I used our vast library of VHS tapes to develop my own film school curriculum.
Dungeons & Dragons & Diversity
The interior hell of the pandemic definitely precipitated within most of the youth and adult populations across the globe, a frantic scramble to find hobbies. In a bid to escape the crushing monotony and existential terror of repeated lockdowns and periodical quarantines, people looked for ways to create joy and connection in their day-to-day. People were en-masse re-directing their energies into more creative or previously unexplored pursuits - a phenomenon that resulted in incredible situations like the Great Yeast Shortage of 2020 (Loaf tins, one of the unsung heroes of the early pandemic in North America), and the Return of the Sea Shanty (Actual sea not required)

What Drives Me
At some point, I think we all had someone who we believed we wanted to be. Whether it be a superhero? An athlete? Maybe the protagonist of your favorite novel. Well, as for me, I wanted to be the hero. I wanted to save the world, or you know, my backyard. I wanted to have daring fights, superhuman abilities, and a slightly morally right nemesis. I would watch in awe as the superheroes on TV would battle it out with the bad guys, and be amazed by every moment of it. Yet, there was just one problem... there weren’t any heroes(or villains for that matter) that looked like me.
