Well, I'm going to lose some serious nerd cred, but I'm just going to say it...I'm a fan of reboots. I also don't mind remakes. That's right, the guy who complains about so much and yet so little, actually likes reboots. Why, you might ask. Well, let's see if you noticed this little tidbit the last couple weeks. One of the most talked about original movies of the year is Sharknado starring Tara Reid and the Dad from Home Alone. Sure it is a TV science fiction cheese-fest, but it's an original idea. And since it wasn't another studio reboot, a low-budget cheesy sci-fi flick became a nationwide phenomenon.

It has been a while since I've written, but I haven't had anything that I'm passionate about to discuss. So far this blockbuster season, the superhero movies have been good enough, and television is doing that summer hiatus thing that it does. Plus, I've been outside doing other things that don't fit in to my blog's format. However, earlier this week, I heard about Jim Carrey and Kick-Ass 2. This was something that I don't understand. Carrey seems like a reasonable individual, but his reaction seems fishy to me.

It's that time of the year again...season finale time. And, this concept is the one thing that regular television viewing has as a benefit over streaming an entire season of a show on Netflix or Hulu Plus. The reason: Emotion. When burning through an entire season (or multiple seasons) of a show on-line, you don't have that same emotional connection to the characters as you do when tuning into these characters lives on a weekly basis year after year.

Wikipedia states that, "In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community." Internet trolls are an annoyance, but normally I can deal with their stupidity. But yesterday, some idiot really set me off when he/she decided to post spoilers for a major upcoming summer blockbuster that was recently released overseas. Not only did this person post spoilers, but they did it on an unrelated thread on my favorite movie based website, Screenrant.com.

A long time ago in a state five hours away, I was a college student. In my years of higher education, I signed up for some creative writing classes. In these classes, I wrote some short stories...usually character driven stories about nothing in particular. I also produced poetry about unusual subjects. Two of those poems were published in 2007 by a magazine called The Kiosk. Now, that magazine is available on-line. Click the link and search for the pages
