The “I’m Sick” Update

I’m sick. Not horrendously sick. Nothing life threatening. Just a common cold. Still, my joints are semi-achy, my nose is dripping, and my chest hurts from coughing so much.

Still, you all deserve a small something to read, so here’s an update on my life.

I’ve been re-watching Firefly recently just cause I’ve been in the mood. If I feel better, I’ll write up a blog on some thoughts I have had later this weekend.

I haven’t written a single word of a new script. Script writing and the Spook Factor in general have both been rattling around in my mind. I’ll let you know if any plans change.

That’s all I’m prepared to share and all you care about anyway, probably. I’m going to go cough out a lung and get some rest.

4 Disney Villains With Terrible Plans

I’ve been really obsessed with Cracked.com lately, specifically their series After Hours. For those who haven’t seen, four friends sit around at table nitpicking popular culture to hell and back. So, I’ve been in the mood to do the same. And what better franchise to cut to ribbons than the all-powerful kingdom of the mouse.

There have been a number of memorable Disney villains throughout the years. They have great designs, over-the-top personalities, a bumbling henchman or two. The villains are the best parts of Disney movies. But do they always have the best laid plans? You’d be surprised how quickly some of these plots fall apart the more you poke at them. So, I’m here to talk about 4 Disney villains whose plans were bullshit. I’m not disputing their evil-ness or anything like that. I’m just saying that these four plans are stupid and pointless. Here they are in no particular order.

Flicking Through Netflix: A Series of Unfortunate Events (Season 1)

If you’re looking for something to read that talks about happy stories, helpful adults, and kids who always get out of every situation without a scratch, I’m afraid you’ve come to the wrong blog. Perhaps you can find something happier to read, like a story of happy little elves having happy little adventures. As for me, I have declared it my solemn duty to write down my thoughts and observations from watching the frightful fate of the Baudelaire children and their preposterous plights. Plight is a word which here means unfortunate situations, which is unfortunately the perfect word to describe the lives of the Baudelaire children. It is appropriate because those very children find themselves all too often in A Series of Unfortunate Events.

My Life Journal: Teaching At A Prison

I’ve had a semi-complicated relationship with the concept of employment. While I was in school (including college), my parents basically forbid me from getting a job. This is mostly because of my sister, who got a job in high school and stopped caring about school after that. She dropped out of college and my parents didn’t want me to do that. So, after getting my Bachelor’s and Master’s, the world of employment finally opened up to me. Unfortunately, my first two “jobs” were just unpaid internships that were more busy work than anything else. Put simply, my employers weren’t all that good and didn’t really need me. So, instead, I consider my first official “job” to be the first one that actually payed me. And that job had me working at a prison.

Reader Beware: Hack Slash (Horror Comic)

Fair warning to all the kiddies out there, this comic is strictly for the mature crowd. The contents of this comic contains drugs, sex, and adult language. Reader discretion is advised.

Slashers are one of the most popular horror genres of all time. It would take me hours to count how many slasher franchises/movies have been made in movies alone. Famous slashers are basically household names. But what about the people who survive them? The Final Girls, as TV Tropes calls them. Some of them live happily ever after. Some of them are forced to try to survive sequels. And one of them becomes a hunter of hunters. This is Hack Slash.

New Year, New Promises

I’m tired of breaking promises. Not to you, my readers. I’m tired of breaking promises to myself. “Oh, I’ll do a blog every day in October. Oops, didn’t do that. Oh, I know, I’ll make a Christmas related blog for 12 days in a row. Nope, I’m already sick of Christmas.” Screw it. I’m done with that. Consider this blog the one that I declare my resolutions for the year. Not physical “Lose weight” type resolutions. I’m making resolutions for my creative side, which has been stagnating for a while. This blog will outline my plans for my creative output for the whole year.
