Which leads to this episode of "Over-Thinking It". … Continue reading Overthinking It: Over-Sized Movie Construction

Wake Me When September Ends!

September has been a rough month for me. The last several months have been rough, but September was particularly rough. At the end of August we went on a bit of a holiday, and had a really nice time.

Overthinking it: Tony Stark in Iron Man 2

I re-watched Iron Man 2 the other day, and was thinking about the scene where Tony Stark sets up the particle accelerator in his house to invent a new element; and I was thinking about the backlash about the scene.

Capitalism is Broken

We’ve all heard the number 1 billion, but have you ever really considered how much $1 billion actually is. Consider this: I imagine most of us have spent $1,000 in one go before. Maybe a smart phone, laptop, new tires for your car, TV, whatever! It was probably a pretty painful day; $1,000 is a … Continue reading Capitalism is Broken

Celebrities, Stalkers, and Social Media

I follow a bunch of celebrities on social media. Probably not as many as a lot of people though, because I have a special rule for which celebrities I follow: Who would be cool to sit down and have a beer with? Of course this is highly subjective, not everyone would like to hang out … Continue reading Celebrities, Stalkers, and Social Media
