Woah, when did I get this? Well, I guess it’s all in the timing. There are so many factors here, including how I am in these situations, deep emotional issues, that time Jaydee hated me because I was a dick to her all the time because I wasn’t sure if we could ever work out, and probably most importantly, the fact that I am a pretty nervous person, and therefor stop myself from ever making the first move because I basically get in my own way. So, her making the first move was really what made us both say ok, let’s try this finally and see where it goes. I think our long friendship coupled with our almost 7 months of dating has really, really helped our relationship be that much stronger. Hope I answered your question well enough, anon.
Yep. They’re my favorite. And amazing live.
Don’t miss it as much this time around. It looked shitty. Also, I cut myself 4 times shaving it. It stings like hell. Fuck that moustache.
I don’t know why my brother gets these random bouts of “I’m not going to wear any socks with my shoes” every now and again, but they need to fucking stop. Your shoes are stinking up the office. Your feet are stinking up the room. Just throw some Arm & Hammer in your shoes and put on some god damn socks already. It’s ridiculous.
after playing an older used one at GC, I want a Yamaha PJ of some sort. The one I played was an old BB450. That thing had great tone and a nice neck, with the action set nice and low. Practicing with all of my gear, or at least my head, and determining if I really need a new head or not is priority, but it’s always good to know what you want and save for the future.
I feel like this is a School of Rock reference, but I don’t know for sure.
Also, One, Two, Three O’clock, Four O’clock, Rock!
Today was a fucking great day. Jaydee and I have been together for 5 months now, and I’ve loved every minute of it. We hung out with her family, and then just hung out together and I helped her a little with her presentation. My siblings got back from Comic-Con today and brought me some awesome stuff, including Adventure Time #1 and #5 (both of which I needed)! And to top it all off, new Breaking Bad, which was freaking’ amazing. Plus, practicing and getting new shoes tomorrow. Hells yeah.
I posted forever ago that this blog was initially started with monsters/mythological creatures/non-existent creatures in mind. So, to get back into that state of mind, here is a mummy rant.
Seriously, when was the last time we got a really good mummy movie? I mean, a really good one with actual mummies. Mummies wrapped up in gauze and shit. The Mummy remake with Brendan Fraser (what was that, ‘99? Early ’00s?) was ok, but the quality of those movies steadily declined with each release. and the antagonists weren’t even mummified. They were mummies brought back to life and restored to be human again.
Vampires have been getting a lot of love in the past 5 years, and even werewolves/wolfmen have gotten a bit of love too. Sure, Frankenstein and his monster haven’t gotten much attention lately, but Burton’s remake of his old Frankenweenie short, as well as constant circulation of the classic photo of Boris Karloff as the Monster show that the characters are still popular and recognizable.
So why don’t people give a shit about mummies? Is it because they’re just not scary anymore? It’s not like they really have to be. Both the Disney movie Under Wraps and the classic (in my eyes) Monster Squad show that mummies can be brought into the modern era and still be fun (although in Monster Squad the Mummy is overshadowed by basically every monster). Hell, even the first of the Brendan Fraser Mummy movies was a pretty good adventure film, and was even set in a correct time period, so a mummy movie can be done well.
In conclusion, someone really needs to make another movie about mummies. They need to make it, and make it so well that people will fall in love with mummies again. They seriously get no love. They’re not famous enough to maintain popularity without a recent adaptation (Frankenstein’s Monster), but not absurd enough to still be remembered (Creature from the Black Lagoon). So let’s give mummies some love, people.
