Blame Final Destination 4.
I love watching movies, and television. When I bought my house in 2009, I couldn't (and still can't) afford cable, or internet, so I had to rely solely on the library's DVD collection. I didn't realize just how extensive that is, and I've been watching more movies and TV-on-DVD than I thought possible.
While watching, I Twittered about what I was seeing. Some things were easy to say in 140-characters. Sometimes I created a Tweeticane of love, or disgust.
Then my mother's boyfriend let me borrow FD4. And all hell broke loose.
I decided I needed a blog to keep track of what I was watching. I am a GoodReads fanatic, and my ability to organize what I'd read in a year's time was music soothing the savage beast of my control issues.
So this blog is for the pop culture side of the coin.
I will be posting my thoughts on movies, TV, and any other event that tickles my proverbial fancy.
Things I can guarantee:
1) You will never. EVER. find a review of Twilight or any of it's hateful spawn. If you want to know why, please see my reviews of book one, two, and three. That only touches the tip of the iceberg of my Meyer hate.
2) You will see things that are not recent. I don't tend to see movies in the theater, and I'm usually hold 104 out of 105 at the libary for new DVDs. Prepare for old schoolness. I'm talking Karate Kid and Frasier. If I manage to sneak in a few new ones in a timely fashion, yay on me.
3) I am a Whedonite. In short, any actor affiliated with Joss Whedon and his creations (Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Angel/Firefly/Dollhouse) is a friend to me. I will watch anything these people are in, the good (How I Met Your Mother), the bad (the short lived Close to Home), and the ugly (the movie Feast). This has been a blessing and a curse, but I'm not planning on stopping anytime soon.
So sit back, grab some popcorn and earmuffs, and enjoy the ride.
