While I had been busy as of late befriending “Mary Jane” (the real Mary Jane, mind you) for the first time ever, my family – both human and animal – had been growing in numbers.

 

My sister was pregnant and due in June with their first child. She announced it soon after my hospitalization and part of me fought for my life so that I could see my first niece or nephew being born. Lord knows it would be a while until my younger brother had a child; at least for his sake.

 

It was around the Holidays of 2003 that we had received word of the sex: Kylie was due to have a baby girl. Immediately, my mind filled with colloquialisms for my Brother-in-law such as “Daddy’s Little Girl” or “Careful when she’s sixteen.”

 

And on June 22nd, 2004, a mere three days from my Birthday, Madison was born.

18- “Timecop” #52PickUp 2017

*Guys, Timecop predicted the Presidency of Donald Trump.

My love of time travel concepts goes deep. So deep in fact, that I decided to revisit a time travel movie masked as a 90s cheesy action film. Or is it the other way around? Which is it, Timecop? And are you any good still?

 

Timecop Poster 1

Cool poster. They must have had myriad concepts from which to choose.

 

Timecop doesn’t waste any time getting into the action. The film opens with a theft of Gold Buillion in the year 1863. All looks normal until the robber pulls out advanced plasma guns to wipe out the transport team. Clearly, he’s not from that time or the present day of 1994. Wait, in what year is the future of Timecop?

As it turns out, the plates did indeed still belong to the Cadillac. For whatever reason, Dad hadn’t changed them over. He did have the insurance though, so I knew I could at least contest that. But what about that stupid “transportation?” Ugh, this sucked more than anything has ever sucked before.

 

Instead of worrying about the impending court hearing, I tried to focus my attention on more prescient matters– My first classes of college, my camerawork, staying warm, and our upcoming Halloween Party.
