Reqiuem for a Lost Show

July 27, 2009

I sincerely believe that at every TV channel, someone is employed to follow my viewing habits, and try to kill everything I love. I know this sounds very arrogant, to assume someone would put so much effort in crushing the little enjoyment I get out television, but at times, I often wonder if it isn’t true. Below are a few of my favourite shows, which met an untimely demise that left me depressed.

Not a Fan #1: Vampires

July 15, 2009

I’ve come to notice that pop culture has become oddly fascinated with vampires lately. They’re in books, movies, even HBO. I’m really baffled by the popularity of these creatures. Why is that you might ask? Well, I believe that vampires are fucking lame that’s why, and I’ll explain why in this ever informative blog.

Alright, I almost didn’t write a blog about this, but someone actually was curious about what the hell I was talking about, so I decided it’s probably best to get off my chest, and hopefully give you some laughs in the process.

I’ve been listening to the radio lately, quite a lot actually. I remember always complaining back home, because of our one station, and therefore “crappy” music we got. In good old Toronto, we have dozens of stations, and yet, I still don’t feel compelled to listen to the radio.

Much like a recently elected president, I once held hope. Not for the country of America, but for the possibility that bands can redeem themselves despite past disappointments in my eyes. That’s why, five years after the release of American Idiot, I decided to give Green Day’s new album a try. I’d listen to the entire thing, no skipping. I’ll be the first to admit that I wasn’t much of a fan of the last album, specifically the singles, which I all thought were pretty awful. But I had hope that maybe, given five years between albums, maybe I’d like the new one. Just maybe.

Retro Reviews!

May 11, 2009

So I’ve decided since all I’ll be doing this summer is working or watching movies/play video games that I’ll be doing some reviews on them for fun. Obviously, some of these movies/games won’t be that “retro”, but nothing is going to be new. Also, there probably won’t be many until the Stanley Cup is done with, as that eats up my time every night. Keep posted!

The Cream of the Crap

April 29, 2009

Wow, it’s been awhile since I’ve updated. I apologize for the ABS (abandoned blog syndrome) and hopefully now that school is over, I might have a bit more time for writing.

Today I’d like to present a list that I’ve been inspired to make recently. There are such things as bad movies. There are also some movies so awful that they’re hilarious to watch. I’ve always thought that if you can at least garner some unintentional humour from a bad movie, then it isn’t a pure waste of your time. There’s nothing more depressing than a bad movie that just flat out sucks, and doesn’t hold the redeemable qualities of being hilarious. That’s minutes of your life being sucked away (I’m looking at you 21!). Anyway, without further ado, a list of some of my favourite good “bad” movies, in no specific order.
