Doris Day Remembered

Many say that Doris Day brought a special ray of sunshine into the world, they are not wrong. Hearing of her passing it felt as if things suddenly felt grey and dreary. We will miss the movies and the music but most of all we will miss how she could make us feel through her…

Once 2007

The other night I was in the mood for a particular type of film. No definite title was in my mind, I just knew the feeling I was looking for above anything else. I didn’t want anything too polished or stylized, nor did I want anything that was too elusive. What I wanted was a…

To The One I Love…

You buy a packet of seeds, gently you place them in the soil and see it start to grow. You make sure it gets sunlight and water. Tenderly you tend to it with patience and love that shows itself as the flower begins to grow. As it grows it blooms which is a beautiful thing…

Wow… October has gotten away from me. I had a lot of writing plans that kind of got pushed on the back burner. This month ended up being hectic but there’s still time before Halloween and I hope to get some appropriate posts up in time. So let’s get into it with an infamous outing…

Haunted Honeymoon 1940

Well we are in October once again. I’m sad to see summer go but thankfully this month provides a few weeks of fun and lightheartedness from Halloween in exchange. Obviously you can’t fully enjoy the month of Halloween without indulging in atmospheric films fit for the occasion. Or at least I can’t. I usually stick…

My R.E.M Retrospective

Do you have one of those bands or groups that just seem to have a constant influence on your life? Basically ones that seem to casually implant themselves in memories or people you’ve known? I have a few but REM holds an extra special place above the rest. The idea for this post came back…
