Shameless Self-Promotion: Rocket League, Big Pharma and Basement; or, What I’ve Been Up To Lately: Ulcerative Colitis, Short Stories and YouTube Videos

I haven’t posted on here in a while, but don’t think that means I’m not doing anything. First of all, I’ve been working hard to maintain my digestive system that I talked about in this post. Which, by the way, I discovered the best way to fight off Ulcerative Colitis is through DIET! Like, hello? Why do doctors say that diet has nothing to do with it when it basically has everything to do with it? I’ve cut out grains and gluten, all processed sugar (I only eat honey to sweeten things) and all corn products (including corn itself).

If More Things Had Titles Like “Robinson Crusoe”

If More Things Had Titles Like “Robinson Crusoe”

Robinson Crusoe, for those that don’t know, is a novel about a man who gets shipwrecked on an island with cannibals and the wacky adventures he goes on, on said island. And by “wacky adventures” I basically mean he runs away from the cannibals. It was published back in 1719 by a man named Daniel Defoe who originally published it under this title:

The Life and Strange Surprizing Adventures of Robinson Crusoe, Of York, Mariner: Who lived Eight and Twenty Years, all alone in an un-inhabited Island on the Coast of America, near the Mouth of the Great River of Oroonoque; Having been cast on Shore by Shipwreck, wherein all the Men perished but himself. With An Account how he was at last as strangely deliver’d by Pyrates. Continue reading “If More Things Had Titles Like “Robinson Crusoe””

5 Great Solo Career Songs From Each of The Beatles

5 Great Solo Career Songs From Each of The Beatles

There is no denying that The Beatles is one of the greatest bands (if not the greatest band) of all time. They redefined music and even all these decades later their music is still relevant. Basically every band and every artist (even crappy ones) have listed The Beatles as one of their influences because they know that that makes them seem cool. Because, to put it simply, The Beatles is a cool band. Even not-so-great songs like “I Am the Walrus” and “Come Together” will always be fun to listen to.

So do you consider yourself a Beatles fan? Do you know more than just the major hits? Do you know songs like, “I’m Only Sleeping”, “I Will” and “Two of Us”? Do you know any of the songs from their solo careers (besides John Lennon’s “Imagine”)? Well, if you said yes to all of those questions, then great. If not, I’m here to change that.

The Human Body and Why it Sucks

So a lot of people might look at the human body and think, “Wow, it’s so intricately designed. It’s so complex and everything just happens to connect and work together in just the right way to sustain life.” And while they would technically be correct, I, on the other hand, am saying that the human body is actually very poorly designed. It’s extremely fragile and susceptible to just about everything ever. Now some people might live 100 years and never experience anything negative with their bodies, but in case you haven’t figured it out by now, I’m not one of those people.

Top 10 Best Songs from the “Very Potter Musical” Trilogy

Now if you know anything about me you’ll know that I really like the Harry Potter franchise (despite some flaws here and there) and you’ll also know that I’m a theatre guy. So all those years ago when I discovered “A Very Potter Musical” (AVPM) I was blown away. It was hilarious, it was well-acted, the songs were really catchy and all-around it was just a lot of fun. It was clear that it was made by fans of the Harry Potter series, for fans of the Harry Potter series. Continue reading “Top 10 Best Songs from the “Very Potter Musical” Trilogy”

Seven Days to Die
Lots of fun playing with friends
Not so much solo

Kind of like Minecraft
But without Lego-type blocks

It’s Showtime!: A Video Game Review and a Short Story

I recently purchased a game on Steam called “Showtime!” It’s pretty fun. Basically you’re the head of a movie studio and you’re in charge of hiring script writers, actors, directors, etc. and making sure all the movies and sets and stuff are within your budget. You have to manage expenses and try to stay in the green. Some movies will do well, some movies won’t, but above all, try to at least make your money back.

New Year’s Resolutions Part Two: The Revenge

Man, it’s been a while since I last posted on this blog. Which is funny because I started last year’s New Year‘s post pretty much the same way.

I hope everyone had a great Christmas, Chanukah, Kwanzaa, or whatever holiday you celebrate. I know I had an awesome Chanukah. I got movies, books, video games and two really amazing autographed pictures (well one’s technically a poster).

Army Signed
“Army of Darkness” poster signed by Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi.
Tyrion Signed
Tyrion Lannister picture signed by Peter Dinklage.

I also hope you all had a fun-filled New Year’s Eve. Speaking of New Year’s, let’s talk resolutions.

Last year I gave myself several different resolutions to try to stick with, so let’s find out how well I did. Continue reading “New Year’s Resolutions Part Two: The Revenge”

Top 5 Best and Worst Horror Movies I’ve Ever Seen

I’ve seen many, many horror movies in my life. I love horror movies like crazy, which is why I really hate BAD horror movies. Movies that are supposed to scare me, but instead make me go “meh”, or nearly vomit from the disgustingness (that’s not a word, but I’m using it anyway) in the film. I’m not a fan of slasher movies, and as such have not seen many of them, so they won’t really be on this list. The only good slasher movie I’ve seen is the original Nightmare on Elm Street starring a very young Johnny Depp. Continue reading “Top 5 Best and Worst Horror Movies I’ve Ever Seen”

Dear Diary: Zombie Apocalypse – Entry Seven

Dear Diary,

On what I could only assume was the eighth day of being lost in a never-ending forest, storm clouds started brewing. They were dark and fierce and I knew I had to stop following the river and try to build a shelter.

Yes, I had been following the river for eight freaking days with no end in sight. I started feeling like I was just spinning around in circles. There was something weird about this forest – or else it might have been some kind of paranoia creeping in. I could swear that the forest wasn’t letting me leave, though.
