Summer Reading

Of course everyone loves the summer because it's a time to let loose and if you're a student you don't want to see a book at least until september. I on the other hand don't share that sentiment. At the beginning of the summer I started reading "Lullaby" by Chuck Palahniuk.
This book was written by the same guy who authored "Fight Club". It is centered around a man who is mourning the death of his baby and wife; both of whom died mysteriously. It was the best way to start off my summer reading."Lullaby" was a short  easy read so it did feel like school work.

"Fast Food Nation" is a book about American based fast food restaurants and all the things that we the consumer don't know about them. This book definitely changed my views on how I feel about food and where I eat.

The next book I read was 'Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close". This book was about a nine year old boy name Oskar. It follows Oskar on a quest to become closer to his recently deceased father by finding the lock to a key he found in his fathers belongings. 

I am currently in the middle of reading "Eating Animal" by the Same Author of "Extreme Loud and Incredibly Close". This book takes a look at factory farming. The Authors writing is perfect for a informational book. Jonathan Safran Foer is able to convey his opinions with out sound too preachy and overbearing.

Next on my list is "The Alchemist". I have received nothing but great reviews for this book. I haven't read a synopsis about so I'm going in completely blind to the plot. wish me luck!!!

Retro Cartoons

Remember the intro's to the old cartoons? they were so hot... I mean till this day I still randomly breakout into these songs!!!  

Arctic Monkey's Covers!!!

I love going on youtube and finding covers of songs that I like, but its rare that i came across a cover that i like more than the actual song. These two videos made me like those songs even more though.

Black Swan

I know I'm kinda late on this, but Black Swan was the best psychological thriller I have seen all year. Natalie Portman does a great job in her portrayal  of a meek and naive ballerina. Plus the Lesbian scene between her and Mila Kunis makes it all worth my $12.50.

Top 10: Zombie Movies

Anyone that knows me well knows that I love horror movies; But if i had to choose a certain type of horror movie I would definitely choose zombie movies. There is just something about the hopelessness of it all. As well as the the emotional and physical the characters must summon to kill zombies in the from of their family and friends.

#10- Dead Air
This movie takes place in a radio station during a zombie take over. the main character is smart mouth disc jockey. Although the movie is low budget and the story line is a bit ify, the movie is still a great watch and the story moves at a good pace.

#9- Zombieland
This horror comedy is hilariously scary. Zombieland show how resilient humans are. No matter what happens in the world the same thing thats we find important will always be important. Two of which being sex and entertainment.

#8- Quarantine
I may be the only one in this boat but i love mocumentaries. This movie invokes feelings of claustrophobia and does a great job to keep you on your toes.

#7-Resident Evil
This video Game based zombie action movie is perfectly blended. This first installment is definitely the best of the series.

#6- Diary Of The Dead
Another mocumentary, Diary Of The Dead show how Zombie Can effect all aspects of our life. director George A. Romero often uses his zombie movies as satirical statement on politics and this movie is no different.

#5- Pet Sematary
This 1980'S film takes a different spin on the zombie movie.
instead of hoards of zombies this movie had just two a dog and a toddler. As innocent as it sounds this was the set up for the most disturbing zombie ever put on film, and Left the phrase "Sometimes dead is better" stuck in your head.

#4- The signal
The Signal shows snippets of the lives of a group of people just after they have been exposed to a radio signal that makes people violently insane.

#3- Dawn Of The Dead
this remake of a classic is down beautifully and has one of the weirdest most heart wrenching scene with a pregnant zombie

#2- The Crazies
This movie poses the question who will you kill to survive and the answer it gives is everyone.

#1- 28 days Later
I love this Movie I have watched it multiple time and I'm still not tired of it. This one stands out Because these zombies are ruthless and quick. They are not like the zombies of yesteryear if you get caught slipping your life is gone.

(I know that a couple of the entries aren't technically zombie movies but they include the same elements that zombie movies include so i'll classify them as such.)

Peace and Love,


True Blood

Season 3 of "True Blood" comes to an end in a couple of days and it feels bitter sweet. Bitter because now that this season is finished we all have to wait almost a year for another season. Sweet because all the major issues that took place throughout the season are going to be resolved soon (Finally). I love a good resolution.

P.S. Im already hearing rumors of witches in the new season. I believe It though because that new waitress did say she is a Wiccan. (I don't know but something about her don't sit right with me)

Peace and Love,
