Good morrow, friends!
As you may or may not be aware, I have a “slight” obsession with stories.
One storytelling medium that I geek out about is music: contemporary music, Broadway music, movie soundtracks. The fascinating thing about movie soundtrack music as opposed to the other two types, is that it can tell a story without using a single word. Music has a huge impact on the emotion and mood of what is going on. So much can be expressed and felt through music. Music is its own powerful, effective way to tell stories. Continue reading
Good day, chums!
Today I am going to be rambling about how sick I am of sequels, why sequels are finicky beasts to begin with, and why this ties into the fact that I don’t like TV shows as a species.
As you can tell, the tone of this post is probably going to be rather negative. But never fear! If it gets too depressing you can stop whenever you wish and go find yourself a muffin. Just make sure it’s not poisoned before you eat it.
Let’s get rambling, shall we? Continue reading
The new year isn’t even through its first month, school is back in full swing, all sorts of obligations are beginning to pile up, and I find myself totally incapacitated. I am unable to focus on anything at all.
The truth is, folks, that I have been murdered.
And the murderer (a word which here means “a person who committed a murder”) is none other than…SUNNY BAUDELAIRE. Continue reading
Well, would you look at that, it’s 2019.
Greetings, everyone, be ye human, dragon, fish, fowl or sponge! Another year has flown past my eyeballs and I am perturbed by how rapidly time is flying. Time, it seems, has no regard for the speed limit.
As is my custom, I have been looking back on the last year to see what I discovered therein. I am also curious to see what I accomplished, though that list is alarmingly short.
This post is a compilation of my book, movie and theatrical findings from 2018, as well as a few random accomplishments and milestones.
Let us begin.
I am kind of squinting at the title of this post going, “Did I write that? Me? Really?” And the answer is yes, I did.
In my last post I may have bashed romance a little bit. I’m not unknown to do that. But I don’t completely oppose romance, and I have written this post to prove it.
Overall my tolerance for romance is not very high, I will admit that, but not all romances annoy me. Even more shocking still, I actually like some of them. I even enjoy romance in stories sometimes. (Is this actually me? As far I as I can tell, yes it is.)
Without further ado, here is a list of some of my favorite movie and book couples. Continue reading
Top of the morning, folks! How goes it?
Something that I may or may not talk about ALL THE TIME is how tired I get of romantic relationships in stories. There are so many possibilities for these characters! They could have friends! Enemies! Parents! Aunts! Nieces! Grandpas! Siblings!
And yet, so often, the main focus of these books is the relationship between the protagonist and his/her romantic interest. I’m not bitter or anything. Continue reading
How goes life? Sometimes I forget that I have one.
For this week’s post, I have decided to create my very own tag- I have never done this before (unless I have and I forgot about it, which I guess isn’t improbable). My brain has been a sock recently, so bear with me here. Continue reading
