The New Leading Man

Lately, something has changed. I know you feel it too: the hunky, perfectly coiffed, buff and charming leading man that we have known for so long has been replaced. The brilliant, lanky and mischievous Loki garners more attention than his ruggedly handsome, blonde brother. Sherlock (all three of them!), a brilliant man who uses (or … Continue reading

Grimm Versus Once Upon a Time

I really shouldn’t be lumping these two shows together because they truly are not in the same category. But I’m doing it because they both came out at the same time this past Fall, and both are based around the idea of fairy tales (though very different fairy tales, to be fair). Grimm is a … Continue reading

In Which I Write a Movie

It’s a short movie. 3 pages, really. But a friend came into town this week and had an idea, only a few days to shoot it, and a will to get it made. So we’re doing it. It’s interesting the way collaboration goes with people you’ve never worked with before. I had a bit of … Continue reading

I Don’t Believe in Sidekicks

No, seriously – I tried sidekicks.  I tried the kid who runs along behind the hero, taking notes while the hero kicks butt. I tried the boy/girl who is quirky and has weird hair and is madly in love with the protagonist. I tried the best friend who wishes he/she could be in the spotlight … Continue reading

In Which Heroes Has Sucked Out My Brain

**Spoilers ahead** It’s not even well written. The characters and their actions are contrived so much so often that I find myself rolling my eyes. There are so many things that do not make sense, that do not have reason. My ability to suspend disbelief has been pushed to it’s limit. And yet. There is … Continue reading

In Which Script Frenzy Approaches

Script Frenzy is drawing nearer each day, and I am terrified. At least with NaNoWriMo, my idea was plotted and ready to go, so the minute I sat down and began writing, it all just flowed out. I have decided on a Script Frenzy idea but I still need to go through and create a … Continue reading

In Which I Still Have No Bathroom

The house remains unfinished, and I remain without internet. How am I posting this, you ask? I am illicitly using the internet at my work to post this. Why? Because it felt important. I am still living in an unfinished house. Three weeks later, we still do not have a  bathroom, a kitchen, or real … Continue reading

Destiny, or Something Like It

Hello, Old Friend.  It has been a while. I left you in favor of fluorescent bathed classrooms, anxiety fueled tests, the end of a decade (or at least a semester). I have returned, though for how long I cannot be sure.  I am here now, and that is all that matters. I am going through … Continue reading

Baby, it’s cold outside, or Frostbitten

Here in Colorado, the temperature is -3 degrees Fahrenheit. That’s right. It’s way, way below freezing and I am expected to go to work at 8 a.am. Okay, so that truly isn’t that bad considering some of us work graveyard shifts, or wake up at 4 in the morning to be at the office. So … Continue reading

Dollhouse Has Moved Me, or, Joss Whedon is a God

That’s right. Dollhouse. Joss Whedon. I’m calling them brilliant. Go ahead, mock me, tell me why I’m a nerd/geek/Whedonite. Tell me that Joss Whedon is two dimensional, that he talks funny, whatever. Tell me that he isn’t relevant, tell me that he is a sexist in disguise. You’re all wrong. And I’ll tell you why- … Continue reading
