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.

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.

I've known about Birdman for ages, it's just that all I know is that it's supposed to be really really effin' good and everything I've seen people rave about it thus far has certainly kept up that trend.

Now, I have no doubts about whether or not I'd like Why Don't You Play In Hell? because Shion Sono is by far like among the top-5 Japanese directors I know of today. That being said, I have like three or four films of his in my shelf, unwatched, so I'll try working through that stuff before I go anywhere near something new from him.

Thank you! It is good to be back on Listal, I'm looking forward to tracking my movies again in 2015. I really missed that this past year, and there's something nice about being in a movie theater a couple times a month that I missed too.
I'm doing much better than I was, lots of stuff was going on this past 12 months, but that's life! I'm in my last semester of studies and I'm looking forward to graduating. I get a bachelor's degree in May and a teaching certificate in June, if not earlier. It's gonna be so great! I hope you're doing well too. It's weird seein who is here still and who isn't.

Man, people are still voting for my shit....

Oh yeah I'm being medically discharged from the army. I get a pretty big payout. I'll come back eventually. I might do more writing in the interim. Might. But yeah.

Man, I've never really paid any attention to Metallica but all in all Master of Puppets is a great album now that I've listened to it. I'm still not that into Metallica but I do like some of their songs, there's like 5 really good songs.

And yes, Leonard Cohen's voice is spectacular so when I heard Come Healing on Sons of Anarchy I did fell in love with the song.

I feel like all the new music I hear these days is from a TV show or a movie. I don't really listen to the radio and I'm not that active in finding new music so I might just hear a great song in a show like Sons of Anarchy and listen to other songs from the artist. Like Metallica suddenly got into my head when I watched all the Paradise Lost documentaries.

Don't worry mate, I'm not about to shut out Listal forever. In fact I might even pop in for special event reviews if I feel the need -- and I do actually have a couple of movies in mind I'd like to cover.

But of course, my priorities are just a lot different. Reviews consumed so much of my life and I almost feel liberated now that I've gotten out of the "review every movie you see" hobby, making it a huge Pandora's box that I'd like to remain closed.

Tell you what, it was hell being locked up at base for weeks at a time. We were given day leave after the first 5 weeks of training, for only 6.5 hours. I went straight to the cinema for X-Men and Godzilla. For my next day leave, I saw How to Train Your Dragon 2. The cinema on base is bloody worthless -- it only received Godzilla a fortnight ago -- but I managed to catch Edge of Tomorrow. And now that I'm home, I've so far seen 4 movies: 22 Jump Street, Apes, Deliver Us From Evil, and Guardians of the Galaxy. Typical me :P

Take care!
