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…

The New MoviePass

I’ve stated like a hundred billion times that I have a MoviePass and I love it, it’s an absolutely insane value for someone that goes to as many movies as I do. I also believe that unless something dramatic happens MoviePass will soon run out of money and cease to exist. The folks over at MoviePass also seem to believe this as they recently announced some upcoming changes to the service. Let’s go over them quickly because while most of this is nice and convenient there’s one that sticks out like a sore thumb to me. I’ll start with what…

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…

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.  

Kero Kero Bonito

I’m gonna be honest. I forgot about posting today. I don’t really have anything. So I’ll just recommend you check out this artist, Kero Kero Bonito. Particularly the album Bonito Generation. A friend of mine recommended it to me and it’s just a joyous “boppy” listen. Great for driving. But yeah that’s it, check it out.

The Luigi Queen

I’ve got a tradition of writing blog posts for those close to me when they die to get married. They’re usually filled with dumb jokes that one right there that compare marriage to death. It’s a dumb bit to stick to but its kind of my thing so I stick with it. This blog post won’t be different from those that came before it, but it is a little bit different. You see I’m writing this post to acknowledge the death marriage of my youngest sibling, Erin. She has the honour of being the first of my siblings that gets…
