Drive Recklessly

Yeah, yeah… so I’ve been quiet lately. It’s not like I haven’t been busy, though: I spent a week in San Diego, followed by a long weekend in Nor Cal, and tomorrow morning I’m off to Illinois for almost a week. I also started a new class at CSUN, because it’s been a whole semester […]

Another One

Thanks again, roomie. I felt compelled to post it not only because it’s fun, but also because I failed to mention in yesterday’s post that this week marks the opening of my second half-decade in Los Angeles.

I’m Baaack…

The trip to Okinawa was really quite wonderful. I did happen to break my glasses while waiting for my connecting flight at Narita, and in the middle of trying to fix the one side that lost a screw, I knocked the screw loose from the other side and lost it. I’m still walking around with […]

Slap Shot

Originally posted at PopBunker.net. For this week I chose another one of those old movies that I actually did see when I had much younger eyes. I know I must’ve watched this movie when I was somewhere between the ages of, say, nine and thirteen, but I really don’t remember. The only recollections I really […]

Okinawa

This morning I woke up at 6:30, did yoga on the beach, and then swam in the ocean. Don’t hate.

Hobo with A Shotgun

Originally posted at PopBunker.net. Director: Jason Eisener / Writers: John Davies, Jason Eisener (story) / Stars: Rutger Hauer, Molly Dunsworth, and Robb Wells From its humble beginnings as a fake trailer created for a SXSW movie trailer contest, Hobo with a Shotgun came out guns blazing as a cult classic before it was even clear that it would be made into a full-length feature.
