I’m not a fan of Sack Snyder. I remember when I saw the trailer for “Watchmen” It looked so unique. It looked completely different from the other superhero films of the time. And, since it came out before we became completely saturated in comic book films, I thought it would be so cool.
Check out my game face! I’ll keep it on all movie! Literally! No other facial expressions to speak of!
When I saw the film for the first time, I was pretty disappointed. I mean, the visual style is neat and very unique. the blue guy was pretty cool for the time. I liked the idea of having a more cynical superhero movie… but in the end I was bored…. the movie was flatter than that cup of Mountain Dew I left in my car the other day (don’t ask). I really wanted to like it… but I just couldn’t Continue reading →
So the other day I’m walking through the store, and I see, right there, in the movie section, the extended edition of “The Hobbit: an Unexpected journey” and I pretty much lost my mind…
but let me back up…. I’m a huge Lord of the Rings fan. I loved the movies. The first time I saw “The Fellowship of the Ring” I was blown away. It was easily the fastest 3 hours of my life. I went to see all the movies multiple times in theaters, and while none of my experiences watching the LOTR movies ever matched that first time in theaters, I still loved the way they were made. I made sure to read the books before “The Two Towers” was released, so I could join all the super-nerds in assessing the differences between the books and the movies and act like I knew about this stuff before the movies came out. Needless to say I was swept up in the LOTR craze. And I loved it!
Over two blog posts I’ve described how, while others’ imaginations bring light and vivid color to their lives and the world, mine is good for nothing but scaring the buhjeezus out of myself. We’ve already talked about scary movies and things that freeze my blood and make me immobile to the terrorizing (Imaginary) forces around me. But today, we’re going to get to the source of my deepest, most awful fears: The dark…

I’ve had three basic experiences writing blogs so far. Experience number one goes something like this: “This post is great! I can’t wait to get this online! Maybe it will even get noticed and Freshly Pressed or something! I feel like this is pretty brilliant!” That hasn’t happened often to me yet, but the rare occasions it does it gets me super excited (And subsequently super depressed when it doesn’t get read by more than two people)
Don’t tell me that! I want to believe people like what I write!!!!
Well, believe it or not, I’ve reached my 50th post on the Catchy Blog! It’s been something of a long road with about 6 months or so of actual blogging (over a year if you’re counting real-time. I already almost let the blog die once. It was serious stuff up here) but I have to say I’ve learned at least a few things so far. some of them are significant. Others are pretty inconsequential. All have shaped the development of how I write, style, and publicize my little blog. Of the many things I’ve learned, here are 5 of the most important.
Like Butt Fumbler here, I’ve had a lot to learn about my trade. Hopefully things are going better for me than they are for him
The grand experiment continues! As I continue to post new rants and random ideas, I’m now branching out, just to see what I can do! As I get ever closer to 100 followers (will it ever happen? We’ll never know. I guess I’ll just have to keep writing to find out! at any rate there are new ways to connect to the catchy blog! first off, there is a new email address exclusive to the blog! If you want to bug me, now you can do it publicly, by commenting on my posts, or you can do it privately, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. That’s right! I’m on GMAIL! woot!

It’s no surprise I suck at Blogging. My blog stinks. It’s awful. Terrible. Horrendous. Painful. Unpardonable. I knew I wasn’t a great blogger, but it wasn’t until I Monty Pythoned myself in the last post that I realized just what an awful blogger I am. See, as with many other posts, I put a little list together. My lists tend to come in fives. No particular reason, other than five seems like a good clean number for a short list. at any rate, like King Arthur, I forgot that in order to count to five, you have to get 3 and 4 first. Thus, I posted a list that counted five things, but I omitted the number 4. I can’t even count to 5 the right way!!!!! (In my defense, I was counting backward from 5. it’s… um… a lot harder that way…???) (don’t worry. I fixed it. It’s all correctly counted and stuff now)
