Modern Romance

    I highly recommend the Netflix show referenced in this blog.  Seriously funny while talking about the sometimes sad ways digital life has invaded real life. Good read!  ==>  Source: Modern Romance

Cosplay Corner – Knightmage

When I first had the opportunity to interview Knightmage last year, it was for Almost Nerdy.  I was, and still am, completely in awe of his Spawn project.  I got a chance to catch up with him recently about some super cool stuff he is doing so I took the opportunity to ask about his…

I Am Out of Hibernation.

Do you know that feeling; when you have not been to the gym in a year, and decide to go back? You hop on an elliptical, set it to its maximum uphill climb level, start pedaling at 3.2 mph, then after 4 and a half minutes, get dizzy and vomit? So…

Dysfunction, Lies and the Ties that Bind Them

This has been a roller coaster of a year for my family.  Since March I have finished up some really cool cooking classes, learned to make rain barrels (I have 3!), seen some good movies (and some bad ones), had a TON road trips, some archery tournaments and had some really great times with the…

Then those days come that I have too many things that need remembering in my head and then I forget. HOW IRONIC. I talk about different ways to help him all the time but…

    As many of you that follow me might know, I am caregiver to a disabled Veteran.  I have talked about TBI & PTSD pretty regularly but because of a few people reaching out to me for more information, I have decided to work on a blog specific to that issue.  While there may…

Why Dracula Untold Is Exciting

In a recent, brief post on summer movies, the subject of the upcoming Dracula Untold came up, and I have to say, I feel like I’m more excited than anyone else about the potential of this film. In fact, I glanced at Coming Soon for a look at the rest of the year to come, and I…

Summer Movies 2014

I was just about to order tickets for Dracula Untold and thought about the movies that we saw this summer:   I feel like I enjoyed this summer more than previous ones because the movies were highly entertaining.  Interestingly enough, a large majority of them were really trashed with reviewers.  That really never impacts how…
