About my collections

My collection can beat up your collection.

Currently reading whatever my daughter wants read to her. Hopefully one day soon she'll figure out how to read & I can read for myself again. Not that I don't enjoy reading to her, but I miss reading for me.

Jurassic World
First viewing - July 15th
Note: I kinda forgot I'd watched this this month, so it got added late. So on the 15th I had plans to hang out with a friend who was coming into town so we could go to a concert together. She showed up early-ish & wanted to catch a movie before, and Jurassic World was the only option with the timing she was looking for. I agreed to tag along, though I really had no urge to see this film. And as it turns out I could have skipped it. I honestly don't get why people have turned out in droves worldwide to watch a film that's just a rehash of every other film in the series. Sure there's a decent cast here, but it's predictable to a fault & there's nothing that got me emotionally invested. To wit: people go to the island to see dinosaurs, something goes wrong & dinos break loose, a couple of kids get lost in the park & have to be rescued, dinos eat people, someone has a secret nefarious plan that backfires, and the T-Rex shows up for the grand finale. Either the people who have seen the other Jurassic Park films had selective amnesia when they fell in love with this one or people are really fucking stupid. It's a waste of time & energy, not just to watch but for the "creative" forces behind it. Oh sure it all moves along well enough to serve as a constant distraction, but that's not saying much. It wasn't so bad I ever wanted to walk out on it, but I totally could have skipped it in favor of re-watching Jurassic Park & had a better experience overall.

About me

A few notes to my fellow Listal users:


- If we have NOT interacted on here in some way (an exchange of votes, comments, messages, etc.) then I will DENY your friend request. That said, I'm always open to finding new people that share my interests, I just don't like adding people as friends when I have no idea who they are.
- I used to stop by everyone's profile to say thanks for votes, but lately it seems like people don't care much about that. So if you vote for something of mine, just know that it's appreciated & I thank you. I may still occasionally say thanks, but I'm not going to make a frequent habit of it anymore.
- I will definitely drop by your profile to discuss comments, unless you don't have a comments section where I can do so. In such cases I will most likely reply in a comment that follows yours.
- PLEASE only leave me comments to check out lists that you know I'd be interested in. And for the record I'm NEVER interested in lists of "hot" people, unless there's some content mocking them or something to make them interesting. I can find eye candy just fine if I want to, thanks.

So I did see Aerosmith a few days ago and it was the best concert I've been to so far. I would say more about it, but I wrote quite a bit about it on my concert list, so check that out if you want to.

I don't wanna reveal much about my new movie, but I will say this...

Title and stuff will be announced via an announcement trailer that will be released soon after I start shooting in mid-August. Until then, speculate away!

I actually met a girl from this talent website, and she's super keen on my current project and is going to help me with casting and so on. And she'll probably serve as a 1st AD on some of my movies. I have booku time at the moment, so I figure it's best to use the time wisely.

I've chewed through 70 action films this month... 6 days to go. The master list keeps being updated and I get more and more recommendations. Oh good. Lol.

Oh, here's my Scott Adkins interview. It got about 50,000 hits.

Haha, I don't think I'll ever get sick of action movies. But I might throw in some variety by grabbing a Jackie Chan or a Donnie Yen or something else in the mix once in a while.

Social commitments have been sneaking in (currently not working due to injury), and of course tomorrow all day will be spent travelling to the Terminator event, so whenever I have free days I am going to chew through movies relentlessly. I go the gym in the morning these days, so I have the day free and I won't make excuses to not go lol.
Posted: 2 months ago at Jun 2 15:26
Just in case you haven't seen my month of action list lately, two days in and seven titles down. Four on the first day, three on the second. Hoping to maintain this average.

Oh, I'm heading to a Terminator Genisys event on Thursday night. Half an hour of preview footage, and a Q&A with Arnie in person. Heh.

Glad you also loved Mad Max Fury Road, the internet is full of insecure males who keep calling it feminist propaganda, lol.

I've been a Mad Max fan for about 10 years, and it satisfied me greatly. The original Mad Max was the very first R18+ movie (Australian rating, equivalent of NC-17) that I owned on DVD. And I wasn't even 18. Hehe.

Hey, there. Realized that you watched my monthly horror journal last year. Here's the new one: http://www.listal.com/list/2015-horror-journal :)
Posted: 2 months, 4 weeks ago at May 8 7:17
Hey buddy! Yeah, I hear ya about missing our little listal community of old. My life, both in the broad sense and in terms of my day to day schedule, has been vastly different over the past year and more than it was three and four years ago when I was active around here.

Fantastic to hear that you're working for a company that you believe in and one that believes in you. That's great news. And awesome that you've got the little one (who it sounds is rapidly becoming not so little-- kindergarten--sheesh!)in your care as often as you do.

Briefly, what you've missed:

Broke up with longterm girlfriend
Got together with woman I've known and loved for years
Moved out into house in the "sticks" with said amazing woman
and her three year old boxer/bulldog mix.
Scrapped old car
Bought new car
Bought new boxer puppy, making us a happy 2 dog household.
Lots of other stuff, ups and downs, but mostly for the good.

Basically I changed girlfriends, homes, cars in March of 2014. The only major thing that stayed the same was my job, and that's still the case. I'm in many ways happier and healthier than I've ever been, and in plenty of ways every bit as neurotic and crazy as ever. And that, briefly, is where things are at.

Have yourself a real nice weekend!
