  • Random things everyone knows but you just found out

    For the longest time, I thought "The Boys are Back in Town" was by Billy Joel.
    Did you do that on purpose? For The Longest Time is a Billy Joel song.  :D

    A few of my best over the years:

    • Chimneys are not in fact called 'chimneys'
    I'm confused about this one... What else are they called?
    Oops autocorrect my bad! I meant to say the real word is chimneys, but I used to call them chimleys. Lol.

  • Random things everyone knows but you just found out

    A few of my best over the years:

    • Chimneys are not in fact called 'chimleys'.
    • Pickles are just cucumbers.
    • They are called contact lenses because they have to touch your eye.
    • That there are other types of cows than just black and white ones. Ever since that particular revelation my friends love to shout "AMY, A BROWN COW!", whenever we are out somewhere in the country.
    • Washington D.C. is NOT in Washington state.
    • A female explorer in Spanish is an exploradora, hence Dora The Explorer.

    And then in unrelated but similar fashion:

    • My young cousin once asked me why we say 'hang up the phone', because he's literally never seen a corded telephone in his life.
    • Someone, once upon a time, had to have coined the term 'to coin a term'.
    • The word natural is man made.

  • Last Movie You Saw & What Did you Think

    Horror movies I'm planning to watch next:

    Werckmeister Harmonies (2001): Not sure. It has really good reviews, but so did Hereditary, so what does that even mean?
    The Transfiguration (2017): Vampires.
    Ravenous (Les Affames) (2017): Zombies.
    Berberian Sound Studio (2013): Sounds like this is another "is any of this real?" type movie that I'm going to hate.
    Only Lovers Left Alive (2014): Vampires. I like Tilda Swinton but I've put off watching this for a long time.
    Split (2017): Not sure. I'm frightened to watch another Anya Taylor-Joy movie because she might be bad in it.
    mother! (2017): Bible allegory. Lots of very violent, hate-filled reviews for this. I watched an interview with the director and he seemed like a complete idiot.
    Dude, I love this commitment to the horror cause, you’re fast becoming my favourite online presence.  :D

  • Last Movie You Saw & What Did you Think

    American Animals (2018)

    I really loved a lot of the quirky and creative techniques used, especially in the first third of the movie. When the actual heist business starts to kick in though, it sort of just turns in to four white dudes shouting at each other, and that’s just not my shit.
