Multiverse Implications of the New Mulan Movie?

Yesterday I spent an inordinate amount of time thinking about Mulan. Not the classic animated film from 1992, but rather the upcoming live-action remake due out in 2020. (That’s about the only thing I’m looking forward to in 2020) I’m not all that concerned about whether it’s going to be good or not, frankly I can sum up how I feel about nearly all the new Disney remakes with an emphatic “meh”, and I just don’t see that trend reversing itself anytime soon. I’m much more interested in the fact that out of all the new Disney remakes, Mulan looks…

Minor Oddities

It’s summertime in Provo which means that there is a horde of students searching for a place to live in the fall, and up until recently, I was among them. Thankfully I’ve secured an apartment for the upcoming year and won’t have to become homeless. That’s not at all what I wanted to talk about today though, but I needed to give some context for why and how I stumbled on the video I want to talk about. Spoilers there’s a video I saw and I wanted to talk about it. Here it is. The actual contents of the video…

Hollywood Here I Come

Fun fact: Last week I got to act in a movie. Not a major blockbuster obviously, but in a student film directed by a friend of mine, Sam. “But Jonny, you have like 0 acting experience! Why would anyone seek you out for their movie?” Well, I happened to be available. Right place right time sort of thing. The actor Sam had previously asked to play the role had dropped out on short notice or something like that, I didn’t get a full briefing on what happened and needing to fill the role quickly Sam contacted me and I readily…

Fallout

Well, it’s been a hot minute, hasn’t it? I wish I could say that the reason for my absence was something productive or useful like, “I wasn’t blogging because I was taking a class on how to get paid for writing.” or “I forgot to blog because I met this girl and fell madly in love.” (My family would certainly get behind that one) But it wasn’t that. The real reason is just so…. so much lamer. I booted up a new game of Fallout. “Really Jonny? You didn’t write for some 2 weeks because you were playing a game?”…

Time Off

Last week I said I wasn’t going to be posting anything for about half of last week. So what was I doing instead? Uh….I’ll be honest, I slept. A lot. Like I would come home from work, go straight to bed and then sleep until I went to work the next day. It was something like 14 hours of sleep a day. Is that excessive? Oh yeah, but let me tell you it was just splendid. I guess sleeping isn’t the only thing I did though, by Saturday I had adequately caught up on my sleep, so I went and…

Break

So in the last week or so I’ve been real busy with my sister’s wedding and jumping back into full-time work for the summer and it’s kinda thrown me through a bit of a loop. Basically what I’m trying to get at is that I’m electing to not post any more blogs this week, just to give me a little time to reorganize my schedule and such.  In the past, I would’ve just not stopped posting without explanation, and I’ve found that when I did that it led to really prolonged stretches without me posting anything. So hopefully by letting…

Tired

Aight, so I’m pretty pooped from all of the wedding shenanigans and driving I’ve done in the past couple of days, also getting up at 4 this morning for work really didn’t help. So this is all I’ve got for a post today. It was like 29-30 degrees Celcius (86 Fahrenheit for you yanks)  and I just was not into it. I was used to it being kinda cold and then suddenly nice and hot. No good, ya gotta ease my sorry but into summer mother nature.
