Monday MishMash: March 2016 Finisher

Image
Monday Mishmash is a weekly meme sharing your thoughts and happenings. You just grab a button and create your post. Sure I guess I write it differently from most but moving on...


1. The 2016 A-Z Blogging Challenge is almost here. Can't wait for Friday to start sharing and checking out the competition.

2. Two new ghostwriting projects are up and one is an ongoing on. After the other ongoing one I mentioned here before stalled (when a customer is lax on messaging or giving me info on complaints there is just no future), this makes me very happy. Plus both customers are helpful and timely online.

3. I am loving reading two very amazing fantasy novels right now. Will review.

4. Celebrating Easter of course!

5. Keeping up on my own writing and starting back in on fan fiction again. I need more writing fun in my life. Don't want to burn out.

So that's my Monday MishMash this week. What's yours?

Oh March

March has been a bit of a tipsy month. I'll be off til Monday and likely will not be back after that until A-Z Blogging Challenge starts. I have been going through a bit of a transition as my taste and blogging habits have made both changes and taken some hits. April will be used as a time for me streamline my blog to see where exactly I want to go. As you have seen of late I have been focusing on movies a lot and really enjoyed the change. By May I hope to find a balance to express both my love for movies as well as books. Plus I do plan to chat a bit about my own writing and get back into assisting fellow bloggers and writers with their reveals.

No comments allowed today but I only do that when I just want to drop a quick update. Still alive and kicking readers. You have no idea how much I appreciate your love and support with this blog. Thank you for being there and I love visiting your blogs as well. May we continue to thrive in the writing community for many years to come.

Daredevil Season 2 and Theme Reveal Extravaganza!

Image
Guess what? I binge watched Daredevil Season 2 over the weekend. Now I'm not a huge binge watcher and I originally intended to watch the series slowly. But through a series of events and yes some hype I ended up watching 1 episode on Friday and then 6 on Saturday and Sunday. Yup I saw all thirteen episodes.


As someone who was not blown away by this series at all last year only watching the first four at a slow pace. Things took a change when I gave it another chance and watched the rest earlier this year. Episode 9 is what hooked me. Yet I was still not over the moon for the second season. But then the trailers came and the talk started. I got pulled in and readers I can say now I'm so glad I did.



Season 2 does not just live up to grand expectations. It blows those up with thrilling dialogue, amazing action and attention grabbing scenes. Complaints are few and Compliments are many. No spoilers, just watch it when you have the chance. 


WATCH IT!!!!

Movie Love: My Movie Plans

Image
With no need for explaining my Movie Love segment involves the love of movies. Mostly I review and share my thoughts on a theatrically released movie. Over time my reviews have become a bit more colorful and fun though I'll still have that formal amateur critic side ready to drop some serious thoughts. For example my How To Train Your Dragon 2 review took a serious look at how the beauty of a movie can hide some too easily missed flaws. While my recent Deadpool review mostly focused on the fun insanity of the movie over a detailed breakdown of the sum of it's parts.



Now I plan to continue to diversify this segment by including movies that I have seen outside the theater including a Crouching Tiger: Sword of Destiny review next week which will combine both my serious and fun reviewing style. I have really come to love this segment as have my readers who leave positive comments showing how much they have enjoyed some aspect of these posts.

Today there won't be a review but a…

My Absence

Image
Major apologies for being absent with no explanation. It was not planned but I'll be back on Friday. As you know I don't like blogging when I'm not commenting. While technically I could have started back from Monday I feel more comfortable with Friday which will be a Movie Love feature. Right now I have been cutting back a bit and yesterday I had a stomach situation which sidelined me somewhat (including missing Zootopia, darn it! Worse it was the last weekday showing and the only theater showing it on weekends is more expensive for me to travel to. Bus and taxi fare matters.). So I might go see 10 CloverField Lane tomorrow instead depending on how I'm feeling.



Thank you for all the support you have given me over the years. Every time I have to take any kind of hiatus I miss you guys. See you Friday and will be ready to share my A-Z Blogging Challenge Theme on Monday.


Getting Personal: Social Media Highlights

Image
Yes social media, from Facebook to Twitter and everything in between. A lot of us use it and many times it's just to browse around finding and posting cool memes. You know, the very important stuff.


Um, Superman has a stepmom on Earth. Is the movie back on? Yes? Good.

Twitter

So the night of the Oscars I live tweeted. A lot of the time with Youtuber @GraceRandolph who is one cool informative lady when it comes to the business of movies. I already mentioned being featured on her channel Movie Math during her Movie News feature via my tweet about a Wonder Woman article. You can read that post here. Well towards the end I tweeted about Leo winning the Best Actor Oscar and I kid you not, the bottom of my online world fell out. In quick succession I got over ten retweets and fifty likes (which increased to over sixty). I had thought getting over twenty likes on a tweet about Disney's television movie The Descendants was great. But that actually took a few hours and I would expect th…

Movie Love: Deadpool

Image
Deadpool. Guys I must say that after seeing this movie last week I'm still on a bit of a high at how great it was. Mind you, it's no Dark Knight, but it was never made to be that. This movie was a hard sell kick ass comedy with gore and romance all wrapped up in a Superhero sandwich that Deadpool shoved down his pants without a moments hesitation. Yes, that's what Deadpool is and that's why a lot of people who have seen it are going wild over it's very existence. Now I'm not some Deadpool expert or even at heart a mega Deadpool fan. Well after I saw the movie I'm definitely a huge fan now but before a big part of what got me into Deadpool was what I found out about him online. Before around 2014 or so I didn't really have an idea of who the hell Deadpool was. Deadpool? Is that a horror movie? Is the pool killing people? Are people being murdered and their bodies placed in a pool by the killer as a calling card? In short just a few years ago, about this…

Monday Mishmash: March 2016 Edition

Monday Mishmash is a weekly meme sharing your thoughts and happenings. You just grab a button and create your post. Sure I guess I write it differently from most but moving on...

Hi I'm back again for another MishMash. I had mistakenly said Getting Personal was coming Monday. Sorry but that's Wednesday with the delayed Deadpool post coming tomorrow. Anyway on with what I'll be tackling this week.

1. More March Madness. I am a little stuck on the children story I'm doing along with the YA novel but all the basic ideas ate there.

2. Going to the dentist for a filling.

3. Freelance work. At least it is a bit less heavy which will give me a bit of my own writing time back.

4, Possibly seeing a movie in theaters this week or next Tuesday.

5. Looking over some fan fiction. Yes I love writing all the time. Well not ALL the time but still...

6. Blogging. :)

Sending my love and best wishes to all of you. God be with you and enjoy your day.

IWSG: Deadpool and Writing Drain

Image
Another IWSG has arrived and it's time to share those burning thoughts and feelings. Today I really want to chat about writing along with a certain movie I finally saw yesterday.

Deadpool

I intend to go indept on Friday under the Movie Love segment on my blog. But today I will say that Deadpool indeed broke the fourth wall. It was a movie that really did the anti-hero that is Deadpool good service. While there was talk about the small budget I must say there has been way worse done with movie budgets more than double that. *Coughs* Insurgent. Violence, laughs and touching moments were sprinkled throughout. Definitely worth watching and if not for my budget I would go back to see it several more times.



Plus there were strong females who were treated like real characters and not just eye candy or ultra feminist (I said it). If you can stand violence around a high action movie with few calm moments inbetween involving a superhero/anti-hero then this movie is for you. Also there are s…
