The cynical fan and “Why can’t we trust filmmakers”

Among one of the various topics that ate away at my brain over the weekend, but between cable men minded timing landlords and failing toilets,  an unexpected supposed to be notified but wasn’t “planned” blackout, and a tree collapse, I couldn’t really do much about it but munch  (*tee-hee* read that one again. ;)) I read the sequart article via my twitter feed (“Why can’t we trust filmmakers?”  )and it got the old marbles rolling for I can see the point Cody L. Martin was making, but I’m not sure I can fully agree. I myself have, and will still … Continue reading The cynical fan and “Why can’t we trust filmmakers”

When You Hit The Creative Wall With Your Face

Who among us writers, performers and creative thinkers/doers alike hasn’t hit that “wall”? Sometimes its stucco, peals back easily, but other times it’s brick and breaks your face. No matter what it’s made of (Aka long term or short) the result is the same: Suck. It sucks to hit a creative wall. To be blocked and feel the very sinew and marrow in your bones building up without release. You want it, but you doubt it. Your brain says no but your heart says yes please. Who do you listen to? What do you listen to? You can’t just follow … Continue reading When You Hit The Creative Wall With Your Face

Art Inspiring Verse ~ Patrick Palmer

Inner Torment Beaten, Broken, Weather worn. Tired, Scared, Somewhat forlorn. Never knowing what comes next, What will thrill me or upset. A basket case, I’ve come undone, Inside my head I am someone. When all else fails, When all seems lost, I lose myself in inner thought. Alone I’m free but lost somehow, Can see the sun, Yet still I cow. For brought to light I seem to wither, Untamed, Uncouth, And somewhat bitter. Where is the sweetness of my escape? Why can’t it exceed this inner quake. I come forward only to be set back. To be forgotten and … Continue reading Art Inspiring Verse ~ Patrick Palmer

Art Inspiring Verse ~ Willy Pogany

Unseen & Believed I want it so badly, And I believe, That what I get won’t be all that it seems. Corners and nooks, Things hide behind meaning, Behind good and the bad, Behind what we’re perceiving. It may seem like down when it leads you to up. What’s considered an evil may turn into luck. I want something’s so badly, With my body and soul. With my mind and my heart, I’ll believe in my goal. I fight for my future, But I’ll follow it’s course, For when good’s the intention, One can believe in its source. ~By Glory … Continue reading Art Inspiring Verse ~ Willy Pogany

#Lovecantwait

Today the Supreme Court of the United States as the justices hear oral arguments in Obergefell v. Hodges.  the outcome of this case could result in marriage equality becoming the law in all 50 states. Prompting me to want to say a few things about equality, social, sex, same sex, etc. We are all people. However in a world of labels and power play going against the conventionally set standard can result in fear, backlash and slander. Basic humanity is so easily forgotten when our own all too human instinct to survive by trying to live by a ‘moral food-chain’. … Continue reading #Lovecantwait

Sam as Captain shall we…

Now as I have stated (and yes will state again) I have no problem with the fact that Sam is taking over the mantle of the big C A. In fact it’s seems natural…well at least in suggestion. In practice…time to turn the old Gloryfic character study on one Sam Wilson. I will not make this a knock down drag out introspective of character history, no…but I will display the man and consciousness behind the mask. And if that mask is to be Captain America’s I see it going only one way… …well…shall we? Sam and Captain first met by … Continue reading Sam as Captain shall we…

The “New” Captain America…

Sam Wilson will be new Captain America. For me it seems a logical step if the suit/superhero identity was to be given up by Steve. In fact I think he would be one of Steve’s first choices, for Steve and Sam are the ultimate in comic book bromance best friends.  A lot of people have donned the Captain America persona, a lot were former side-kicks of the “big man in charge” but he and Sam were never (to me) mere Super and side-kick protegé. No theirs was always a partnership. So Sam stepping up to the mantel of Captain is … Continue reading The “New” Captain America…

I walk a lonley road…

Do you? Perhaps in some way or another, for we all have a path, a driving force. For some it is out of habit, out of honor, ritual, promise, debt or beholden. For others it is with their whole being. It is something that can be hated, marred, wounded, raped and turned against, yet even if you try you can not forsake it. I am not talking about anything wrong here. No vice or addiction. I am talking about belief. I am talking about pride, passion and the sacrifice that comes with following your heart, your guts and what you … Continue reading I walk a lonley road…

Top 7 songs that changed my life

Music is something that has inspired my life, my stories and my characters since I can remember. Whether it’s dancing in the living room in my Princess Jasmine top and tutu to Joseph and the Technicolor Dream Coat (Donny Osmond and Andrew Lloyd Webber, I mean how could one lose?) Putting on my own all singing, all dancing shows for my little brother to writing my own – early writer showing – Broadway extravaganzas, Dance-a-thons to No Doubt and Beyonce, or redefining myself with Green Day, Bowie, Queen (The Lot) the rest is history in the playing. Today I chose … Continue reading Top 7 songs that changed my life
