Looking at my previous Valentines related posts, some may be inclined to believing that I am bitter, jaded and cynical about Valentine’s Day. This is not the case. I do appreciate getting a card or two. Plus my mother has been known for giving me, and my younger sisters , a present for Valentine’s Day. Hey, if you can’t depend on the love of your mother on Valentines, then what love can you trust? I like Valentine’s Day. I do, or at least I appreciate the platonic idea of what Valentine’s Day is supposed to be. Continue reading

Hey, everybody! Thanks for a great 2013! Here’s a look back at the year that was. Just some stats and stuff. I’m definitely gaining a following. Top three countries reading me, The US, UK, and Germany. Not bad! This report comes courtesy of the WordPress.com stats helper monkeys that prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.
Another New Year is upon us. It seems that each year it comes quicker and quicker. For many of us, New Years is probably the most depressing holiday of the year. Perhaps it’s the fact that Christmas seemed to come so soon and all the joy and excitement and anticipation we had has left with it. For others it’s watching those happy couples share in that New Year’s Eve kiss. It’s hard being the only single person at a New Year’s party, even when it’s with family.
If you ask Batman fans what the best Batman movie is there will no doubt be arguments as to whether that is between Tim Burton’s first Batman film or Chris Nolan’s The Dark Knight. However, a vast majority will come to agreement that one of the very best Batman film of all time, if not the best, is an animated movie that came out in 1993 called Batman: Mask of the Phantasm. One look at this unsung classic, and it’s easy to see why.

“No man is a failure who has friends.” Perhaps after “Every time a bell rings, an Angel gets it’s wings’, it is one of the most iconic and memorable lines from the classic movie It’s a Wonderful Life. Oddly enough the line is never spoken, it’s only written in a copy of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer that the Angel Clarence gives to George Bailey at the end of the movie. It is often misquoted as “no man is poor who has friends,” but regardless of if it is said or written or how it is worded, it is still a statement with a lot of truth behind it.
