Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister by Gregory Maguire

It took me quite a few years to even get interested in reading the Wicked series, but once I did, I went through them quickly. So, in that spirit, I decided to start reading Gregory Maguire’s other fable/fairytale based stories. Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister by Gregory Maguire was a darker take on the story…

Cage Fever – The Rock (1996)

Don’t let this title fool you, this movie is not about Dwayne Johnson, former WWF/WWE wrestler and legend. Because honestly, how could Nicolas Cage “logically” impersonate a 6’5” Samoan man beast with his magical eyebrows? At least they have one thing in common, which is their affinity for the King of Rock and Roll, ELVIS….

Maria Dahvana Headley’s The Year of Yes

I happen to love memoirs, especially funny ones! And this one made me laugh out loud. I picked up this book because the library didn’t have the one I wanted and it seemed like it would be an adventure. I was not disappointed (in this book. I was disappointed the library didn’t have the original…

Belated Five Fandom Friday

In honor of (Old Man) Logan coming out in theaters today, I decided to share my favorite X-Men movie universe characters with everybody. Logan/Wolverine I was impressed with Logan/Wolverine the first time I saw him. But more importantly, I started to love him when he stole Scott’s/Cyclops’ motorcycle. The best part is of course, his…

Birthday Bash and Health Update

Hello readers! It has been a week or so but I thought I’d supply you with a quick update. As some of you are aware, I am a late 20’s adult with one of those awful chronic diseases that most people don’t start feeling till they’re 50. That’s right, arthritis! And it’s in my lower…

The Main Event (1979)

When I think of boxing, the first person to come to mind isn’t usually Barbra Streisand. It’s actually Rocky Balboa. Which probably says a lot about my knowledge of the sport. It’s just a bit too violent for my taste (hence, my longtime love for the WWF/WWE wrestling – sports entertainment they’re calling it these…

Galentine’s Day 2017

This year, is my first year actively celebrating Galentine’s Day. This year, it just seemed to click that maybe my lady friends needed a fun reminder that they are supported and loved by their other lady friends. However, I am a fan of celebrate your lady friendships all year round, this is sounded like a…

5 Fandom Friday

The AT&T Pro-Am is an annual golfing event that has been going strong all week, despite the fog and rain here on the central coast. Celebrities pair up with golfer pros to play a game and raise money the day before the real golfing tournament begins. Bill Murray is one of those celebrities that shoes…

Accidental Tourist (1988)

This suggested came from the Foxy Husband as a bit of a surprise. He’s not one for movies that sort of focus on the romance but for some reason, this one resonated for him. Perhaps it had something to do with leggy Geena Davis. Accidental Tourist was directed by Lawrence Kasdan, known for Body Heat…

Cage Fever: Vampire’s Kiss (1989)

As mentioned at the beginning of the year, New Year – New Changes, I have decided to begin this crazy train by watching all of Nicolas Cage’s films. Who would subject themselves to such madness? ME. I semi-jokingly described this journey as an exploration of madness — since my country’s going mad (the USA) I…

Passengers (2016)

After watching Rogue One (2016), I was still on a space movie high. I convinced Foxy Husband to go with me to see this film, but it was easy because we were able to use some free passes we acquired [after watching Dr. Strange (2016) in an understaffed and dirty theater]. Passengers was directed by…

Rogue One (2016)

I wish I had seen this as my first Star Wars film, in theaters (for my generation at least). I just had so many beautiful feelings watching this film. Rogue One was directed by Gareth Edwards, who also directed Monsters (2010) and Godzilla in (2014). It was written by roughly four people: Chris Weitz (About…
