This Is True On Some Level At Least

You Should Be a Film Writer

You don't just create compelling stories, you see them as clearly as a movie in your mind.
You have a knack for details and dialogue. You can really make a character come to life.
Chances are, you enjoy creating all types of stories. The joy is in the storytelling.
And nothing would please you more than millions of people seeing your story on the big screen!


This morning, my mother's church was having a breakfast so my father and I ran over and ran back. (Not literally.) We had pancakes, sausage AND bacon as their current confirmation class put it on and it's mostly boys this year. 'Nuff Said.

I feel the need to clear up some confusion about my posts and comments thereof. Why am I spending money on CDs when I should be saving it up to pay my two monthly bills (health insurance and consolidated student loan)? Because I have only so much will power. Sure, I can hold out when I have no money but if I'm able to buy a damn CD without overdrawing my account, I'm going to do it. Besides, I'm buying, what, two CDs a year? Besides, I'm not sinking my money into a cell phone or credit card. I also want to point out that my annual ALA dues, and other more frivolous bills, are still paid for by me alone. Thank you.

I really would love to go to a pancake breakfast at a church. My thing (and I not an uber-spoiled rich kid--more like spoiled-lite) is I won't eat unreal maple syrup. So, if I brought some, would that be rude? and would I have to share? You are mad lucky to get both kinds of breakfast meats tho.

Also, I saw a sign for a church pasta supper. Yes it had meatballs, but it was 10$ a head. For pasta at a church? I thought it was kinda pricey but maybe times have changed since I was religiously active.

10 dollars is way too much. Many suppers down here are like 6 or 7 which seems a bit too expensive to me so, 10, forget it...

Your fancier churches would frown on you bringing your own syrup but they would probably be more apt to have the real stuff anyway. The less fancy churches wouldn't care but would expect you to share unless you had some sugar-free stuff because you're diabetic.

Sunday Morning Movie Review

Black Panther was great. Just as  Wonder Woman  gave little girls a superhero to "look up to," little African boys (Yes, not just African American  boys) have their own hero. But what was even better about this movie is that it was so much more. It wasn't a stereotypical Eddie Murphy or Whitney Houston movie.  Even 5, 8 years ago, we wanted this to happen but this might have been just the right time. T'Challa is king of the fictional African nation of Wakanda that millennia ago became rich in a fictional mineral called vibranium that allowed them to  become the most technologically advanced country on Earth. They decided to keep this secret, however, and disguised themselves with a cloaking shield and the guise of a "shithole country." (See? Relevance!)

Wakanda has reached a crossroads. Xenophobia is really no longer working. The villain of the movie, Wakandan by blood but certainly not upbringing, Killmonger, takes the throne in an effort to take the Black…

Ant-Man On The Ocean

I'll discuss  Ant-Man and the Wasp  in a minute but there's still a handful of thoughts about my viewing of  Ocean's Eight I want to relay first...  When the all-female Ghostbusters  came out, there was the usual "raping of childhood" complaints.  Ocean's Eight sidestepped many of these issues by being a spin-off of a remake that was already done. Sandra Bullock played the sister of George Clooney's Danny Ocean. (There was mention their father was als in the business. A reference to Frank Sinatra?)  Also, if you want to do a all-female action and/or comedy movie, the heist genre isn't a bad way to go.

Soundtracks are usually "just there" for me. They seem to be usually selected for their beat and tempo and not their lyrics. Lindsay Lohan's Herbie: Fully Loaded  was particularly noticeable in this regard for me  but I was admittedly in a bad mood that night since I had rather watched  The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe  for whatever num…

Going Solo With The Reviews Today

This post will focus only on  Solo: A Star Wars Story. Star Wars  has always had controversy going back to the old, old Star Wars vs. Star Trek  debate.  It's funny that  Solo  was directed by Ron Howard as franchise creator George Lucas once recognized Ron's brother Clint during a casting session as Balok of the First Federation in the early Star Trek  episode "The Corbomite Maneuver." I bring up this old argument only to point out when comparing the two as I've felt  Star Trek  (at least on TV. Harve Bennett dumbed down the franchise for the movies long before  Star Wars fan JJ Abrams did...)   that Trek was more intellectually stimulating while Wars was pure Good vs. Evil fun.  Solo  is a shining example of this and sunlight-deprived  nerds are up in arms.

A friend pointed out to me the movie explained too many mysteries.  According to the internet, the biggest, most controversial, reveal was where Han Solo's name came from. This was never a mystery worth…
