Top fav horror movies 2017

review rant

OK OK a I know this post is a a few days old but… In my defense I have been battling a sinus infection so when it came to filming my review video… I thought I should pass on you guys seeing me like this.

I rarely get sick but when I do…it’s not pretty!

But here goes my count for the best 2017 horror flicks!
it's awesome

GET OUT

Any movie that I am not only willing to sit through twice but pay for more than once deserves to be numero uno.  This movie had suspense, enough blood, and had me a tad paranoid to visit any of my white friends out of town. I won’t lie I had my doubts about Jordan Peele making a horror movie but it lived up to the hype. Slap yourself if you haven’t seen it by now.

IT

IT was the flick I had been dying to see ever since reading the majority of the book as a kid and seeing the mini-series.  I was so glad to see some of the crazy shit from the book on screen.  I mean a family TV station in the 80s/90s airing Stephen King? I mean it was good but c’mon without Tim Curry or my childhood crush, Jonathan Brandis from Neverending Story 2 or Ladybugs (Jonathan Brandis) I probably would’ve never watched. But I love this flick and all the hype that came with it was definitely lived up to.

SPLIT

This was definitely M. Night’s claim back to the throne.  It was a great suspenseful horror flick without relying on overloads of gore and jump scares.  James McAvoy was awesome as crazy ass Kevin and that girl from the witch was perfectly cast as the “survivor girl” I just wish we could’ve seen the other 20 personalities up close, et cetera. LOL

LIFE

A movie with my dream guy Ryan Reynolds who dies off and I am still in tune… Yep he died playing his usual snarky self in the space thriller.  As far as space flicks go, I was probably more in tune with this that Aliens because it had me enthralled and the ending…sheesh! I like a good bleak and ending of doom towards earth.  That little shit Calvin (the Martian species) was the best kind of killer, no speech and no emotion!

ANNABELLE: CREATION

I pretty much thought the first Annabelle movie sucked.  I went in with low expectations thinking I know what they wanted to do with this creepy ass doll but It felt poorly put together.  This prequel did not…where they failed, Annabelle 2 got it right.  Just the like the Ouija prequel will always outshine its predecessor, we see what happens when folks take the source material and not rush to cash in but tell a story worth watching. It finally told the tale of a Demon using this doll as a conduit like it should’ve in the first flick. Because Lord knows we only have need for one killer doll running around and his movie didn’t make this list.

HAPPY DEATH DAY

I only saw this flick because my friend hates scary movies and Annabelle had left theaters by the time my birthday had come around.  The Jason flick we were promised was canned and I figured what the hell. I must say, I was entertained.  What I thought would be cliche and predictable was actually kind of fun and had me going. Movie had me thinking I may need to re-enroll in college should my daughter pledge a sorority.

1922

I watched this one night while scrolling on Netflix looking for a horror flick. I will say it was one of those ominous flicks that kept you wigged out the whole time.   Not over the top gore or scares but what I miss about classic horror…creep factor! Thomas Jane is almost unrecognizable as this post WW1 farmer who kills his wife and is pretty much haunted by it until the end and not just supernaturally.  Karma simply hates this guy.  Should’ve known this came from my fav author Stephen King.

BETTER WATCH OUT

I literally watched this the other day after trying to find a movie to put up here to replace Amityville Awakening, which only would’ve made the cut because the kid from Shameless was in it. Anyway this is pretty much Home Alone if Kevin was a little older.  Because let’s face it, that fucker was demented to have thought up those “pre-Jigsaw-type” traps for those poor robbers.

THE BELKO EXPERIMENT

Let’s face it.  Who wouldn’t want to kill some prick that you had to put up with for 8 hours a day? I’ve worked plenty of jobs where I wanted to throw a stapler at somoen for no good reason.  This movie really doesn’t give me the justification of doing that like Clerks or Office Space but…it’s still pretty cool  Well this movie which pretty much didn’t have the greatest plot in the world still had enough gore, witty banter, and twist enough to keep me entertained.

THE BABYSITTER

This was a funny tongue-in-cheek horror flick that you have to be a moron to take seriously. I enjoyed watching this King Bach was hilarious as expected.  I watched this with very little expectations and glad that it didn’t have a whole lot of jump scares or unnecessary back story.  It was a fun tale and kept me entertained.  If you have Netflix…check it out!

New year! New me?

DIW RANDOM THOUGHTS

Nope, I am still the same sarcastic, cynical, mistake making, horror loving, drinking, writing arsehole  you and I have both grown to love. (yes I said arse).

.animated20

That’s not to say that I don’t want to make improvements or changes in my life for the better such as the fitness thing, financial, spiritual, etc.  But this statement cracks me up.  People make resolutions to make changes that they rarely stick with.  Why wait? What’s the point?

I mean if you want to change some aspect of your life, then why the dramatics? Wake your ass up and make a conscious choice to change for whatever reasons.  No need to wait? I mean why wait to be the person you want to be when you can be that person today? Besides if you want to get technical, the new year traditionally starts with spring or something for you lunar calendar people who don’t rely on the ol’ Gregorian calendar to make choices.

SavedPicture-2015188270.jpg

I mean people make promises to do shit everyday and to what extent the decide to stick with it is usually forgotten by Valentines Day if not, MLK day.  Now don’t get me wrong, I am not here to “Bah Humbug your effort to make positive life changes but honestly, if you wanted to, I mean really, really wanted to, then you would not wait. Keep it real.  Most folks want to lose weight or make more money but don’t want to make the effort towards those goals.  You can’t or won’t lose weight while not being active and stuffing your face with junk food/soda/etc. If you’re not going to work towards a lucrative financial situation (a better job/career/business venture) or at the very least save some damn money, you won’t be financially comfortable or at least prepared for that raining day.  This is especially so if you are constantly one to order out or go out every weekend.

It this simple people, Changes warrant well… changes!!! It’s a known my strongest opinion (and probably a fact in most cultures…lol) that when any individual procrastinates making a change of some sort, it is because they are afraid to or simply do not want to.  Why they do not want to is perhaps a matter of being comfortable in what the current situation is or using it as a crutch.  Why lose weight when you can use it as a disability or be lazy & not wake up? Why not start a business? Or get a lucrative career when you can rely on handouts or is it fear of change? No matter what it is, we allow these “security blankets” to hinder whatever resolution we are putting off in the first place.

stress-relax post it

If you want to cut people off, stop bending over, being taken for granted by folks, then leave those people behind today not January 1st.  Why keep beating a dead horse? Why continue to allow people to feed on your vibes and energy? And not to play Devil’s advocate but if you constantly asking why people don’t want to be bothered with you, why your phone doesn’t ring or get notifications, or why you’re bored and alone while the world spins… Then sweetie, please evaluate YOURSELF…like ASAP! Everyone can’t be the culprit so stop the victim act and get YOUR life together! Instead of feeling sorry, wallowing in self-pity or regret, let go of the past and find so happiness in your miserable existence…. Then maybe (just maybe) folks won’t be hesitant to pick up the phone when you call or hell they may just throw you an invite!

That’s just my advice… There’s is no time like the present & the future isn’t promised. So what are you waiting for? Stop procrastinating and start your come-up TODAY!!!

Well Until Next Time Kiddies

Hollywood vs. Washington DC

dumbassblog

So today’s Red Forman award doesn’t go to anyone in particular.  It’s rather pointless to single out anyone. However there are some dumb fucks out here.  If not dumb fucks, at the very least, ignorant or perhaps naive.

I am going to get straight to the point?

How the fuck can we as a whole nation of citizens condemn and curse Hollywood but at the same time turn a blind eye to DC? I mean Capital Hill and Tinseltown have always had one thing in common and that’s been powerful men… Powerful, white men to be exact. Men as far as history tells us, have always used money, power, fear (sometimes respect) to conquer others. It’s nothing new.  The only thing shocking about it these days is that instead of whispering, folks are coming forward left and right with allegations and accusations.  Every time I turn around, I hear about someone in the indusrty who was forced to partake in some kinky shit.

First Bill Cosby and now pretty much every famous dude like…ever!

But all that being said, we are talking actors, producers, directors and any other media moguls being thrown under the bus for some shit they did decades ago.  Putting their trusted friends/families & loved ones in awkward positions. I mean how do you stand by someone who molested another person? But to the same extent do you suddenly stop loving someone you are related to or partnered to for years after some shit happens? Do you support them in their time of need or cuss their asses out for being nasty & stupid?

But let’s keep it 100 for a second!!!

We all know about the sexual misconduct on the director’s “couch” that goes on in Hollywood! We see & hear stories about women (and men) who will do anything to make it big to get famous. I mean once that question rolls out “How bad do you want it?” and people pretty much throw all inhibitions out of the window for that big break. Does it make it right? No but how guilty can the guilty be if one plays victim after the fact?
.animated43.gif

That being said we take a turn to the east coast and look at the victims of those in a different seat of power, fucking politicians! Who could be worse than they are? They use not only money but the law itself to protect them from well the law! That being said Mr. ‘Grab ’em By The Pussy’ is our fucking Commander-in-Chief! He has a whole laundry list of shitty offenses that should not only strip him of his title/job but land him in jail! She, he even dodge the draft back in the day.  To this day they condemn the previous president and his citizen ship…like WTF? I really wasn’t previous president biggest fan but I don’t doubt his loyalty or at the very least cultural ethnicity.

It is no secret that I have very little respect or admiration for President Trump, in fact I think I rather loathe the guy. With that being said although I was trying to avoid a political post, there are some thoughts…

First of all why the fuck hasn’t he been impeached or the victim of an assassination attempt?  He has overturned laws in place by his predecessor that not only protected the environment, ecosystems, animals and well us humans, but he has offended other country leaders, turned a blind eye to his own citizens in times of crisis, increased the racial tension in this country (which I’m actually glad about in an odd way)… Hold up before you trip… I am only happy that Trump’s election exposed racists in this country. Why? Because now I know who they are.  Now that they are comfortable enough to no longer hide behind fake smiles & gestures…I know who to keep my eye on (in case I need to set it off in this bitch)

.animated45.gif

No but honestly, wouldn’t you rather know who your enemies are?

That aside, how many times has a victim come forward with claims of abuse or sexual misconduct, even if infidelity by the hands of a politician? And then go through a series of taunts and ridicule…only to have all his bullshit swept under a rug or forgotten?

bitch blog kitty

Are We All BiPolar?

wotw_diw

I think I am fucking bipolar.

I haven’t been clinically diagnosed but it recently dawned on me… One minute, I’m manic and overjoy
.animated21

Then the next, I hate the fucking world.|
.animated44.gif

Now don’t worry about me, I’m fully functional and all.  I just think there’s a tiny misfire somewhere in my head. Is this a cry for help or is it me coming down off of my own high? Is this me pulling your leg or trying to lean on your shoulder. I only ask because there is no way one could withstand the level of fuckery that I do with a smile….unless I am without a doubt fucking loony?!?
.animated40.gif

That being said, I am fine. Despite life’s ups and downs, I am blessed.

I know that mental health is no joking matter but if I am struggling around a few emotions stirred with a few events that affect my mood day to day, I wonder how it is for those who cannot deal? I mean I keep it together on the outside, I meditate and focus my energy but I know that in the back of my head, if unchecked I am a ticking time bomb.

Take a moment to ponder…

Imagine being trapped inside of your own head or a prisoner of your own emotions… but instead of having a way to channel them or controlling them…they control you.

Imagine clinging to only the good memories others made for you because you lost yourself in them.  You did this only to escape yourself and in turn pushed them all away.

There are voices in your head telling you one thing or another.  You don’t know who/what to listen to or not. The consume every part of you.

They control the relationships you form or destroy.  Like a drug, you’re addicted to the chaos of your own malicious mind.

And then one day you wake up, happy and refreshed.  You have a new outlook on life. Everything is without a doubt beautiful. Things no longer haunt, hurt or anger you. You are free to do whatever you want and you have a newfound confidence.

And then fear sets it, that at any moments time, it can all go away and you will be back to being miserable and being controlled by your own demons.

Scary shit, right?

Regardless of such, I know one thing is a constant…

No matter what I’m dealing with, no matter how good it gets or bad it turns out…

Writing will always be my go to weapon of choice. Whether I need to cry, vent or kill someone (er…just joking), I know that I can fully express myself here. My silent but deadly voice.

How to play Perfection

I guess I could file this under Hump Day Thought of the Week!

I think it sucks we set ourselves up for failure by assuming what could/should happen instead of preparing what does.

Soda Made My Kid Fat

No lack of going outside & playing made your kid fat!
If liberal parents are going to criticize & even sue soda making companies, fast food chains & junk food snack producers… Then you might as well point some of the blame at video game makers, computer tech companies, hell even the internet for allowing your kids to sit around doing nothing all damn day! Stop blaming crappy food companies for your kids being overweight or overactive. Let their assed go out & play. Crappy foods YOU buy for them nonetheless! Yeah I know safety can be an issue but it’s no excuse.
But here’s a better bet… Blame yourselves moms & dads, instead of pointing fingers at the companies responsible for marketing ads towards kids. So bitchslap yourselves too for not having the decent sense to make them get off of their asses & burn calories!
All those electronic devices you let them zone out to keep out of your way on…that’s all on you!

But in hindsight, you little fuckers need to get up & do something! I tell my kid to get up, workout, play or something. She doesn’t wanna listen to me, well it’s on her… Not to be cruel but at the end of the day, if you don’t wanna have heart disease or feel shitty or be unhealthy, then that’s up to you.

If I workout,  she or anyone else can totally get to sweating with me. I won’t force or beg. I mean you can lead a horse to water but can’t make it drink…

Well I could always take away the WiFi… 😈

 Well til next time kiddies…

Today’s Anniversary

So hey guys…it’s been a while since I got to typing and putting my feelings onto the page.  But I have been trying the video blog and YouTube shit and it’s not so bad.  But today’s blog was brought to you by the letter A.

Just kidding… But the topic starts with an A as in anniversary!

I woke up realizing…well… knowing that today, 11/9 was my own D-Day.  It was the anniversary of the ex, I recently came to leave. But I didn’t wake up with sadness, which I feared.  I wasn’t even angry anymore.  I was happy…shit maybe I am going through some manic shit as a result of being bi-polar.  (OK I have not been diagnosed with that shit but I could be…idk). 

Maybe it was all the frustrations I took out on the zombies in Call of Duty. Oh yeah…I think it was the thought of giving headshots to the Nazi zombies that I confronted, level after level!

Anywho, I woke up happy today because I think that I am starting to find inner peace because as soon as I went onto Facebook, they were showing some happy memories of my ex and I.  I knew it was coming the whole “On This Day” shit and I was wondering what kind of day it would be. 

Oh and yes I cropped out our faces….no need to continue being petty.

I got to thinking about how toxic it was for me the last four years.  I pretty much was in a relationship with a black hole (where you give and give and the other half absorbs and absorbs).  If I wanted to go out, have fun, engage in anything. I had to be the one to initiate it. I paid for nearly everything.  And when I looked back at how much I did, I wondered how delusional or insecure I was.  Now before you go judging me as to why I stayed and blah blah blah, there was the whole trying to be this supportive-watch-your-man-grow thing, but that wasn’t the case. I was being sucked dry and instead of running away, I ran towards it.

Now I won’t get into details of how bad or good things were because I am happy to have helped someone get on their feet and become better…even if it meant for someone else. I no longer harbor grudges or resentment or anything that would cause me pain. Because that shit is so unhealthy and at the end of the day, like I said, I chose to stay.  But it didn’t mean it wasn’t without pain…I let it consume me to the point of wanting to exact revenge.

omg rage-thing

I was so torn but I had to realized that I was expecting love from someone who could not give it (or would not). Now this epiphany did not come easily.  I had to go through a lot (I mean it was beyond your typical unfaithful guy…this shit was damn near deadly).  Nevertheless I got through it. Sitting here to day, happy. Why? Because I refused to let anything or anyone control my emotions like that ever again.  I needed to accept the fact that I gave permission to be treated as such in addition to the fact I didn’t accept long ago who I was choosing to be with.

And that’s what today’s blog was about: Accepting and Expecting!!!

I could be a Dumbass & stay stuck on foolery, but why?

Accept who the people are in your life but do not expect them to be someone they’re not or do something they can’t.  Remember, just because you cuddle with a snake and dress it like a puppy, doesn’t mean it won’t turn and bite you or squeeze the life outta you.  With that said you can either accept how they will treat you (good or bad), & leave or stay.  Some people are only in your lives for a brief time to teach you a lesson or to get to their intended destination.  You can’t always view it with disdain that they want to hurt you but often times they just end up doing it.

But how you live with that is up to you. You must live, learn and move on!

So today I focused more on another anniversary, It was the same day I went public with my small start up business, Philly Designated Drivers. Sometine when I met my ex…had I not met, my driving gigs probably wouldn’t have grown at that time.

So I focused on that a little… but as I look ahead, I realize that too must be concluded. (for now).  I woke up remembering that when you do the things that you love and focus more on that as a career, it feels less like a job.  So it is now that I embark on my writing career and such…blogs and all! I’m all media again baby!!!

Now I know I’ve said it before but what makes today pretty awesome, was that I look around me and see so much to be happy for, instead of being crappy about it.  Yeah I could be sad about being single but here I am no longer killing myself chasing someone who’s toxic (and he gets to be someone else’s problem). In addition to that, I realized that I had so many new and amazing people who care & loved me that, why the fuck was I pressed over anyone who wasn’t?

I’m done with the shit that made me a lesser person.  I mean it’s dumb of me to sit there and stay pressed over it.  I won’t give it power over me, shit I don’t even need to or will continue to talk about it

I have a new and awesome job at an awesome place with awesome people and oh I upgraded my old Chevy Impala to a new one!!

 So you see, each day in life is about new beginnings and starting over…or even going back to a happy point in life and reclaiming it.  My happiest day aside from bringing my child into the world was getting my book published. I missed that feeling and as I sit and write one story and edit my old manuscript…I am ready to fly!!!!

Actually…I’m not mad…odd!

Well til next time kiddies…

Shalom
