Tales From The Void
Gabriela set about really going through the things she had taken from the snake creature that had attacked her. Most of the trinkets were silver or gold cups, some jewelry, and scant amount of coins. There was however a bracer that caught her eye. It was high tech with a readout display that popped up when you tapped it. “This could definitely come in handy.”
A Criminal Element
If you’re like me, then you have a hard time getting into those trendy binge watch shows like The Office, Game of Thrones, or Stranger Things while they’re trendy. Naturally, there’s a lot more shows than these that are trendy, but that’s what comes to mind. I only watch shows that I’ve already had a long running loyalty to (Supernatural), re-watch for background noise, or are somewhat compelling. I find a lot of the detective, action, and crime shows interesting. I don’t mean the horror porn that some find appealing, but prison documentaries or law and order type shows.
The Ring of Fire
It is the 20th April 2021. Tom Hanks, for it is he, is sitting at his typewriter composing a Pulitzer Prize winning treatise on the meaning of symbols on typewriter keyboards. The stack of completed pages sits on his fine wooden desk, taller only than his bouffant hair which has not been cut in two months due to social distancing measures. Suddenly the telephone on Tom Hanks’ desk rings ominously. He lifts the receiver with the feeling that this call will be anything but ordinary, and is greeted by a mysterious voice in an accent that he cannot quite place. ‘Is this... Tom Hanks,’ the voice asks, seeming both near and far away at the same time. “Mister Hanks - Do you know of Dante’s ‘Ring of Fire’?”
Review: Less Is Now
I just had to watch Less Is Now because I am obsessed with The Minimalists. They have changed my life in so many ways from reading their blog to listening to that podcast. I just knew that the minute this documentary was out I had to watch it.
Movie Review: 'Tyger Tyger'
The new movie Tyger Tyger suffers from the strange affliction of having a far more interesting backstory than the story being told in the movie. The film was written and directed by Kerry Mondragon and explores his own troubled history with drug abuse to tell a story about the often surreal, beautiful and dangerous world of addiction. The film is set inside a real life fringe community in California that proves to be way more interesting than the story of the movie.
Why Disney's Raya and the Last Dragon has me losing my mind
There's no denying that Disney has played a huge role in shaping or influencing our childhoods, especially their animated movies. As a kid I would watch all the Disney Princess movies with an almost obsessive intensity. I'm still very confident in being able to sing the theme songs from each movie (even though I am admittedly very tone deaf). If I had to name my favourite movies, it would have to 'Aladdin'. The original animated movie, has a very special place in my heart because of Princess Jasmine.
You've Got Mail fans will love this new show
Looking through your Queue can be exhausting, and its not always super accurate. So how do you find what to watch next? I love romantic comedies, and honestly, 90's era romcoms are some of my all-time favorites. Meg Ryan definitely gave us quite a few classics like Sleepless in Seattle, When Harry Met Sally and Kate and Leopold. But my favorite of hers will always be You've Got Mail.
