Fiji to Provo: My Take

I’ve been trying to write this blog post for some 6 years now. For 6 years the words to describe my feelings have escaped me. For 6 years everything I entered on the screen, wrote on a paper, mumbled to myself or thought in my head felt right. 6 years this has thing has been nagging at the back of my head. It’s been 6 years since I returned home dishonourably from my mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. 6 years, and the story only gets longer each year, but now I want to tell people…

Mission Impossible: Catch Up

In just under two weeks the newest Mission Impossible movie will arrive and in preparation for this movie, I have a confession to make. I’ve never seen a Mission Impossible movie from front to back. Ever. Not once in my life have I started one of these movies and then some 2 hours later arrived at the end. I’ve seen chunks of most of them. They seem entertaining enough, Tom Cruise is obviously a pretty popular guy, and I’m a big fan of spy movies. There really isn’t a good reason for why I haven’t watched them, other than the overwhelming…

Screaming the Anime aka Attack on Titan Season 2

I’m a big fan of binging through shows, it’s why I don’t really like watching shows during their season. I hate the waiting week by week to get another fraction of the story I’m being told. Maybe that’s just because I’m spoiled by all the movies I watch that have a beginning, middle and an end all in a single sitting. (Except you Sicario 2, you’re ending was lame and I’ll get around to writing why at some point) I just really don’t like to be left hanging so whenever possible I binge through series or at the very least…

Ant-Man and the Wasp

Look, I’m gonna eventually say something here that qualifies as a spoiler for Avengers: Infinity War so if you haven’t seen it yet you’ve been warned. I won’t be spoiling any details from the newest Ant-Man however. I had the opportunity to go see the new Ant-Man movie last night and I’ve gotta say that after what was an utterly depressing end to Infinity War it was kind of nice to go back to the fun little adventures of a hero like Ant-Man and not think about the fact that like over half of the Marvel characters were wiped from…

ye

Aight so back on Friday Kayne West dropped his new album “ye” and I’ve listened to is front to back like 6 or 7 times now and I’m proud to announce that I friggin love this thing. It’s whacky and at times all over the place but it’s genuine and Kayne continues to prove that he just an outstanding producer.  Since it’s a short album at only 7 songs I feel like I can just go through each one and give my thoughts. I Thought About Killing You: I really like that through the first half of the song all…

Movie Roundup: Looking Ahead

If it wasn’t obvious from my last post detailing all the ways I wasted time last week, let me just say that I’ve fallen behind on my obsessive moviegoing and therefore don’t have much information to make a roundup for this week. So instead and since the summer movie season is finally upon us (BLOCKBUSTERS HOOOOOOO!) I’ll point a few movies out that I’m really looking forward to, and just to spice the clickbaityness up I’ll even let you know that #2 will surprise you! #1: Hotel Artemis Secret hospital for criminals? That’s a premise I can get down with….
