To Blog... or Not to Blog...

Hello InternetLand!

Welcome to another installment of Rants, Ravings, and Nerf Herders.

I've been kicking around the idea of starting up yet another blog. One where I present my reviews on movies from Netflix. I've been sitting on this for a while now. Trying to decide if I should just make it a "feature post" here -- you guys have read (hopefully) my previous attempts with the Star Wars blu-rays; if not, check it out here and here -- like every Friday (or weekend... to keep it a bit loose...) or just completely dedicate one blog to just movie reviews.

Also, should there be a monthly theme? As in "31 Days of Halloween" where I watch/review one horror movie every day through October. Yeah, I know... kinda late on that one for this year.... Or even better: viewer votes! You guys, my readers, vote, make suggestions, demand, cajole, Jedi mind trick, or otherwise coerce me into watching such-and-such film. I like that idea. But it would also require a commitment on your part dear readers.

Can you commit to it? Will you commit? That means I would need your feedback. I promise I won't bite....

Hard. >;0)

Ok. Tell you what. I'll posit (<-- yes, that is a real word: see!) this idea to you, and you guys think about it. You don't have to answer right away, although sooner would be better. :0) Let's give it 'til, say... November. November 3rd. Let Halloween rule the night. Enjoy the festivities! Feast on mountains of candy! And as you come out of your sugar comas, think on this: should the internet be adorned with yet another amateur(ish) blogger trying to badly review awesome films lost to the annals of history, only to be revived by Netflix?!?! Can one person alone make this decision?!?!?!

The answer, my friends, is... up. To. You.

Spread the word. Ask your friends, neighbors, family! And Vote! Please share your thoughts in the comments below. Or, if you don't have a comment to share, click on one of the reaction buttons: "cool" for yea, and "Zzz" for no. Or do both! (Just know that all "Zzz" votes will be summarily ignored... ;0} )

Alrighty then.

This post kinda took on a life of it's own. I think I'll walk away slowly now....

This post had been brought to you by the letter Q: 

and the number 12:

We'd also like to thank these (unofficial) sponsors:

Netflix: Watch movies. At home, or on the go! (<-- not a real slogan... but it should be!) Define your world. (<-- again, not real...)


YouTube: Where you're the star of your own channel! (And user channels Deanmo23 and the official Sesame Street channel.)

Who. Are. You...?

Hey InternetLand.

I felt like posting a bit of melancholy here. I may or may not actually post this one.... But if you are reading this, then I guess I went ahead and put it out there.

So the last month has been full of ups and downs. I lost a job. I got back into theatre. I made awesome new friends. I felt the weight of my world crush down on me. In all of it, I don't know if I've lost sight of who I am or who I want to be... but... (there always is one!) But.... In some way I feel like I have.

Sing! Sing a Song...

Hello InternetLand!

How goes the world now?

The last time we talked, I announced I would be searching for new employment. Well... the search continues. But I have several prospects out there. I hope something bites... and soon.... Bills are piling up....

But on a happier note: I am really enjoying getting back into theatre! Rehearsals have helped to keep me busy and out of that funk. I've even gotten ambitious enough to start riding my bike to rehearsals... a 5 mile round-trip trek. Granted that's not too spectacular... but it makes me feel like I'm actually doing something good for my body and mind at the same time!

To Boldly Go Where I Hope to Never Go Again...

Well, dear readers... today was not my best day.

I could gripe and moan all I want. It won't change the events of today.

Let me start off by saying, I LOVE acting! It is such a creative outlet that allows for one to vent all manner of frustrations and stress! There is something to doing what you love, and loving what you do. Wise words once offered to a friend at a parting of ways.

To the meat of the matter: today...

Thank the Maker!

Good Ladies and Gents of InternetLand,

Below is a long-promised post. I'm sorry for the delay.... Really, I am! If you saw today's earlier post, you'll see that I've been working on other things too!

I originally watched this... in... um... well... it was a while back. So if some thoughts seem unfinished... it's because I don't recall the specific thought from the time of first writing. As of this edit, the documentary listed is still available. I strongly urge you to check it out!

With out further ado, continue on past the jump to read the original post!

Out of the Ashes

Hello InternetLand!

Like the proverbial phoenix... (or Terminator) I'm ba-a-a-ack!

Well, we'll see how often I can actually post in succession. I wanted to give you a few updates on what's gone on since last year (!!!). <--- Yeah, it's been a FULL YEAR since I posted last!

I still have a post from back then that I need to polish up a bit, but that can wait for another day.

So this last year has been full! Some of the highlights include: learning about copyright laws, jury duty, getting tattooed, and getting back on stage. Just to name a few (that I can recall right now)! For some details, continue on past the jump.
