In The End

So after creating my own blog template yesterday, I tested it and found some issues. Not in the mood to deal with any more issues, I decided to download WordPress once again. However, this time I also downloaded the Wordfence plug-in, hoping that it would provide some form of protection.

Still I am not 100% pleased with the template I chose – Twenty Fifteen – and may have to change to one that allows for more color customization. While I am a big fan of black and white, when it comes to visuals I prefer color…and lot’s of it!

I better make a decision today before I have way too many posts that need alteration.

Tomorrowland (2015)


I had to watch this today because it was due back at the store today. I started it while I was finishing up my work, but found it so interesting and entertaining that I had to put it on pause until I finished my work.


Bound by a shared destiny, a teen (Britt Robertson)bursting with scientific curiosity and a former boy-genius (George Clooney) inventor embark on a mission to unearth the secrets of a place somewhere in time and space that exists in their collective memory.

This movie reminded me very much of the Disney franchise that I had come to enjoy as a kid, though I was a little confused at the beginning, not knowing if I was at a state fair or at Disneyland, a la the Small World ride. The plot was so interesting, as were the special effects, which probably distracted me from work.

When I went next door to cook lunch, I found dad asleep while watching it. He advised me later that the beginning was slow, but I would have to disagree.

George Clooney was an interesting character and I was surprised to see Hugh Laurie in this movie.

San Andreas (2015)

San Andreas

It’s been a while since our DVD store has had anything that I have wanted to see and now I have three movies to watch overnight. Yikes!


After the infamous San Andreas Fault gives, triggering a magnitude 9-plus earthquake in California, a search and rescue helicopter pilot (Dwayne Johnson) and his estranged wife (Carla Gugino) make their way together from Los Angeles to San Francisco to save their only daughter.

But their treacherous journey north is only the beginning. And when they think the worst may be over…it’s just getting started.

I had been wanting to see this movie since I first heard of it becaue I love end-of-the-world movies. The story was kind of lame, but the effects were awesome! After watching this movie, I just hope I am dead or have moved to another state before we experience anything like this. I live right by the beach and know that if we ever have an earthquake this big, I will definitely be prone to experiencing a tsunami, which will definitely end me if the earthquake doesn’t.

Love Dwayne Johnson and those big ol’ arms! Surprised that the weenie in the movie was portrayed by Ioan Gruffudd, whom I have found attractive in the past. Cool to see Archie Panjabi in this movie, whom I recognized from The Good Wife. Paul Giamatti appeared in this movie, and much to my surprise, Kylie Minogue!

Spy (2015)


Mom went to the video store to see if San Andreas (2015) was available for rental yet. It was, and she also rented Spy (2015) and Tomorrowland (2015). Unfortunately, they are all one-day rentals, so I had to get busy with my movie-watching.


Susan Cooper (Melissa McCarthy) is an unassuming, deskbound CIA analyst, and the unsung hero behind the Agency’s most dangerous missions. But when her partner (Jude Law) falls off the grid and another top agent (Jason Statham) is compromised, she volunteers to go deep undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent a global disaster.

The story was cohesive and up to par for my entertainment preferences. There was a lot of humor and the movie was also very action-packed, which kind of surprised me.

I really like Melissa McCarthy, finding her very humorous, in the style of Lucille Ball. Surprisingly, I thought Jason Statham was just as funny as Melissa. I thought Jude Law was very attractive. I recognized Allison Janney from Mom, which I catch on television once in a while. Finally, I liked Rose Byrne’s character and the interaction between her and Melissa.

OMG! I almost forgot the most interesting thing about the movie…there was penis – albeit, fake in my opinion – in the movie! I have been celibate since August 2007, so I am very happy when I have an opportunity to see some penis.

Here’s another one…

Unfortunately, I am a fan of dark meat!

Do Over

Congratulations to the idiots that had nothing better to do in life than hack my personal blog of eleven years of journalism, forcing me to delete it and start over again.

Hope you’re happy!

Because I am so over WordPress‘s open source code, which facilitated the hack of my blog, I have decided to maintain a manual blog, keeping it simple…and safe! The funny thing is that the simplicity of my blog reminds me of the television show Doogie Howser, M.D. I always admired how he blogged/journaled at the end of the show. Actually, that was my inspiration to start blogging after I learned hypertext markup language and graphic design.

As my life progressed, I found the value in journalism: it helps me to figure things out at times. Something about writing down what I am thinking slows me down and give me an opportunity to figure things out.

So here’s to a new beginning.
