I Skipped the Oscars and Patricia Arquette was WRONG.

(I should state that these opinions are my own. They are not a reflection of anyone that I know who works in Hollywood. Wouldn’t want any of you to get flack for my opinions.) I didn’t watch the Oscars this year. And I’m happy I didn’t. I did catch John Legend and Common’s performance. And

Why I gave up on #100happydays and it’s okay.

Last year, I attempted to do #100happydays. It’s a thing where you post a picture of something that made you happy once a day for 100 days. The idea is that by the end of the 100 days, you’ll be looking for the happy moments, rather than focusing on the negativity. I stopped posting after

It’s been far too long, but I’m back with another vlog – and it’s about Marvel’s Agent Carter – the 7 part television event (that’s a fancy name for mini-series) focusing on Peggy Carter.

Hello 2015.

2014 by all accounts was a pretty uneven year. The great things were awesome, the terrible parts were really bad… and there weren’t many things that actually fell in between. There were a lot of great moments- TheBoy and I went to four different conventions and had a great time at all of them (two
