This is a lesson in procrastination

After some initial set backs--for reasons too emo to get into around these parts (yes, I try to play the part of the sane, semi-self confident girl. It’s the interwebs, I can totally lie and get away with it), I decided this weekend would be a good time to get back involved with my portfolio and get my ass in gear.

Spill out your heart sister, show me your passion.

So it’s a rainy Saturday afternoon. The perfect type of day to curl up on the couch and preferably watch some sappy movies with that someone special. Sadly, I don’t have I figure I’ll write the perfect Saturday lazy afternoon post.

You’ve seen these around, a slightly upgraded version of those emails we use to send around when we were in high school: twenty things you probably don’t know about me. Hey, at least it’s not one of those “surveys” because do you really care if I prefer coke to pepsi? Come on.

What's so special about this Bella girl? Edward's so whipped!

I figure I should start this review off right. You know, get something off my chest for those who don’t know me.

I was a vampire fangirl.

Well, still am. And totally before it was cool.

You gotta walk before you run

(As always, you can probably find better reviews out there, such as this one.)

I first had the pleasure of listening to Chartered Heston when my mother e-mailed me to listen to her co-workers new band. I was a tad apprehensive, but this is the same office that has housed other Canadian indie darlings, including a band member of Said the Whale to name one...

Not that I’m name dropping or anything here.

That's right bitches; I got a crossbow!

To me, The Losers is one of many movies that fits into the hereby newly made genre that I just created on the spot: the guy’s version of the “chick flick”. Dick flick?

Okay, the name needs work. So sue me, I just created it.

Picture Cop Out FTW.

Okay, so kinda of how the title says, this is part cop out and part, hey look what I did a couple of weeks ago.

Absence makes the heart grow fonder

Okay. Yeah, yeah. I know. I promised myself that I would post once a week and I believed I missed last week's if not the week before as well [editing note: dayyyyuuummmm...apparently I'm missing two posts]. Don't worry. This won't be the only post for this week.

And no, I'm not going to start to have a series of checks and balances. I screwed up for one week and you're gonna judge me too? Pfft.

I kid.

Well. Sort of.

Holy I-Was-A-Teenage-Werewolf, Batman

Sitting down to review Fool Moon by Jim Butcher, the second in the Dresden Files series, I cannot help but compare it to other series.

Now, this isn’t to say that I didn’t enjoy the book. I did. I’d like to think of these comparisons as good things, as Dresden is certainly unique in many senses and yes, I’m a little late in the game to jump on the bandwagon. However, throughout my reading I did find myself drawing comparisons to previous works I’d seen/read, both to Dean Koontz’s Watchers and to the popular television series Castle. The detective show starring one of my very own freebie five and fellow Canadian, Nathan I’m ever so cute and charming Fillion--probably best known for his role as Captain Mal from Firefly.

(Side note: If you don’t know what Firefly is or have never seen it, stop reading this and go watch it.

No, I’m serious.)
