New (and Recurring) Series in 2017

As my second year of writing on the blog comes to a close, I’m grateful to all of you out there who have supported me by reading the blog, commenting, and helping it grow from its meager beginnings, to a mildly more popular site. I shattered my old view count for 2015, I intend to once again double the views from the previous year; which will be an astonishing goal to reach. Here are my views in the year 2016:

Which Series Are Returning?

My Cancer Story

Of course, this crucial part of my life and its documentation will continue into 2017. I hope this will be the year that the first draft is complete so I can begin the rewrite and release it as an autobiographical novel. This is one of my main goals for the New Year. Continue reading

My #DLMChallenge Top 20

Parring down this massive list of 368 movies into my favorite list of just ten is a scary thought. So I determined that I would have to do at least a Top 20.

Naturally, I’ve removed the ability for the #ReWatch365 movies to make this list. This is truly my favorite of the new movies I’ve seen this year.

I will make a separate Top 10 for the movies released in 2015, and those will be based on the quality and my personal tastes (coming soon).

In an attempt to differentiate from the 2015 Best Of list, this list will feature the movies that really spoke to me, ones that gave me a feeling that permeated quality, and filled me with personal substance. Yeah, intense.

But first, here are some Honorable Mentions from the #DLMChallenge 2015 (The ones in bold nearly made the list): Continue reading

ALL 368 #DLMChallenge Titles!!

The #DLMChallenge for me was to either catch up on the amazing films I’d missed over the years, or to see the ones I tossed aside; the ones where I say: “Eh, maybe later.” Thankfully the list is filled more with the former than the latter.

This was an arduous task. Most days I didn’t think I’d make it. But I did! 368 films in all!

Scroll Down below for the entire list and at the end, I’ll tell you how many hours total I’ve watched films this year… But first some superlatives:  Continue reading

If I Were a Kid For the Force Awakens…

Growing up I never had a plan and certainly wasn’t one to change desired profession willy nilly from firefighter to astronaut like most young boys; I just lived. Day to day.

One without ambition has to wind up without success, right? This is the way we were taught. My father was and still is a master diesel mechanic, taught partly by a few peers but mostly through his own volition, much like Luke Skywalker amongst once great Jedi. But that kind of job never appealed to me, and it isn’t the fact that it’s dirty, hands-on work, but it’s a job with a ceiling. Continue reading

90- #DLMChallenge “The Voices”

For #90 of the #DLMChallenge #365moviesin365days on May 20th I watched: The Voices.

I love actors who consistently pick roles that are super risky, because it allows them to find themselves, hone their skills, and try new things. Therefore these are also the actors whom I highly respect. And yet there is one man who picks said roles who can be hit or miss, but is still a kick-ass man. Continue reading
