52- #52PickUp and We Play A Game!

This week is interesting. Alex and I are hoping to be joined by Tim as I promised last week. Will he show?

 

We discuss the history of my #52PickUp webseries, how I came up with the idea, how I decided on which films to watch, and test Alex’s viewing prowess with these classic (and not-so classic) films.

 

Then we discuss my newest entry in 2017’s #52PickUp: Waterworld.

See all of my current films in the #52PickUp Series, and which ones I watched last year.

And finally, we play a game that you too can play! I ripped it straight from a podcast that I listen to, who, in turn, stole it from a radio show!

 

#52PickUp: The Shameless Topic! (Starts at 00:00)

The Human Mind and its Powers

I’ve had this draft saved in my blog’s bowels for over a year now. Originally, it was called “My Physical Memory Lanes,” but it’s more than that now; this post is about the mind’s different abnormalities, or rather the ones which I’ve encountered. I’m going to touch upon three unique experiences that my mind had been privy to over the years, the most recent occurring a few nights ago. But first; the most common occurrence of the three:


1. Deja Vu

Have any of you ever experienced Deja Vu? The term literally translates to “Already Seen,” and happens to around seventy percent of the population at some point in their lives. It usually occurs for about thirty seconds, but can sometimes extend past that duration. Continue reading

“Don’t Think Twice” #ConTENders 2016

This week’s Railroad Square Cinema viewing was a film that I had requested to be shown there (not that my lone voice had much of an impact on the owners’ decision), but a #ConTENder for the best film of the year is the 2016 comedy/drama:

dont-think-twice-poster

Don’t Think Twice is a film about an improv group known as The Commune, who perform in New York City, and not-so-secretly wish they could be cast in the thinly-veiled allegory to Saturday Night Live called Weekend Live. Jack Mercer (played brilliantly by Keegan-Michael Key), lands the role and it causes a dynamic fissure amongst the entire team. But in reality, the film is about failure. Writer/ Director Mike Birbiglia said as much when interviewed on the Scriptnotes podcast: Continue reading
