Job Hunting Circa 2017 Is Absolutely Soul Sucking

Job Hunting Circa 2017 Is Absolutely Soul Sucking I have been in active pursuit of better employment for running on 5 years now, and to date (August 14th, 2017) I am still batting .000%. A great big swing and a miss seemingly happening in perpetuity. It’s not from lack of trying! I routinely fill out 20+ online applications a month, but I rarely ever hear back from the companies that I am applying to. One might chock that up to the state of my resume, but I don’t think that…

Thoughts on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 5 @jedwhedon @MoTancharoen @Marvel

Thoughts on the direction that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 5 could take – #itsallconnected…again, again, still, and on and on, yadda, yadda, yadda. *** SPOILER FREE: This posting will be spoiler free – so feel free to read safely with the knowledge that if you haven’t seen the series or the season 4 finale, I won’t ruin any of it for you. ***  Last year I did a write up about what I thought might get incorporated into the next season of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. I had a lot of fun…

On the Topic of Voting: Every Vote Counts, Yes Even Those Votes… #VoterRegistration

On the Topic of Voting: Every Vote Counts, Yes Even Those Votes… Before you get bent all out of shape thinking that I am about to go on some partisan political tirade telling you why a candidate sucks and why you should vote Candidate X. Stop! Get a hold of yourself. Take a deep breath and relax. This is not one of those kinds of posts. This will be a brief little blurb about the importance of being registered to vote and why your vote matters (even if you don’t…

Westworld On Film & HBO’s New Series: Why You Should Be Watching #Westworld

Westworld On Film & HBO’s New Series: Why You Should Be Watching #Westworld Yesterday marked the debut of HBO’s re-imagined Westworld television series, and to celebrate the launch I sat through the classic film Westworld and then watched the series premiere on HBO Now directly thereafter. Hindsight being 20/20, I feel that this was probably the best way I could have experienced the premiere. There is a foundation that is superbly laid down by the feature film, which gives a clear vision of what the company Delos Destinations is, how…

And Now For Something Completely Different… The Olympics! #rio2016

And Now For Something Completely Different… The Olympics! #rio2016 Some folks love Baseball, some prefer Basketball, and a healthy amount eagerly await the Football season like a pack of wild ravenous hyenas looking for freshly grilled meat to eat on their tailgating excursions. Me? I don’t watch any professional sports anymore. I was a huge supporter of baseball in my youth, and I even occasionally enjoyed some basketball, but much like the Star Wars films, as I get older I find that there is no valid reason to keep supporting…

So We Now Know What the Nintendo NX is… Sort Of… Maybe… @Nintendo #NX

So We Now Know What the Nintendo NX is… Sort Of… Maybe… I have spoken a lot about Nintendo over the past few months. First, I wrote an open letter to the Big N about where I thought the NX should be heading, which you can read: here. I also wrote a commentary piece about how Nintendo is being perhaps too secretive about their plan for Fiscal Year 2016 and how they are metting out information about their new gaming device codenamed the NX, which you can read: here. Finally,…

Reboots Vs. Comeback Cast Sequels: the Ultimate Nostalgia Showdown! #KurtRussell

Reboots Vs. Comeback Cast Sequels: the Ultimate Nostalgia Showdown! Each year, the Hollywood movie machine churns out hundreds of theatrical releases, and even more via digital distribution and streaming services. A common thread amongst a healthy sample of these movies are reboots of existing franchises. Whether it be big screen takes on older TV shows or complete reboots of existing films, it seems that we inevitably have to put up with a lot of poorly recycled content. Don’t believe me? Just this year the following reboots will hit the big…

Open Letter To @bioware @RayMuzyka @DoktorZee @legendary About the Mass Effect Movie

I have recently found myself making another run through the Mass Effect video game series by BioWare. This is not my first, second or third time through the initial trilogy of games, lovingly referred to as the Shepard Trilogy, in fact – I have lost count of the exact amount of times this makes, but I’ll ballpark it at around 10 times. Why do I keep coming back to this story? What is so compelling that I find myself drawn to yet another play through? The answer is simple: it…

Watching The Wheels #HappyMonday #JohnLennon

All apologies: Again, I’m writing a post to motivate myself to keep moving forward. For frequent readers, I apologize if this is bordering on petulant, but clearly I’m working through some shit, so bear with me a bit longer. I need my mental Hanz and Franz to pump (clap) me up!  My plate is not getting any smaller: I seemingly keep piling stuff on my shoulders as if my middle name were Atlas. There’s family stuff, house repairs, work, pet care, the blog, and I’ve been trying desperately to finish a…
