10 Movies That Stayed With Me Even If I didn’t Want Them To

Posted on

I was tagged on Facebook to do a list of movies that have stayed with you. I thought it was a good idea for a blog post. Plus this enables me to ramble on a little. While the original list calls for 15 movies I decided to take it down to 10 and I tweaked it slightly since the films you could pick for the list could be anything and ones that aren’t ones that were disturbing. However, I went ahead and tried to limit it to only doing ones that did disturb me and stayed with me a lot longer than I may have wanted them to. Though it also led me to be impressed by the films even more. This was actually harder to do than I originally thought because I wanted to make sure the reasons why a film stayed with me was for a specific reason. […]

I Am Now A Purple Belt In Kenpo

Posted on

I’m sure everyone on my social media outlets are sick of me talking about this but when you accomplish something it can be hard to keep quiet about it. Though it’s never official until there is a blog post on it. I have been studying Kenpo for a couple years now. I took Kickboxing (along with some Kung Fu and Kali) when I was a teenager but it never really caught on with me. While I enjoyed it the emphasis was more on competition and not so much on learning the art. I never had an interest in competing so by the time I got to college I moved on. Many, many years later I was drawn back to martial arts. I first heard of Kenpo in the early 90’s and and that stayed with me all along. I couldn’t find a place when I was a kid which is […]

Goblin Performs The Suspiria Score Live

Posted on

Here is something that I never thought would happen. Within 6 months I have seen the Italian group Goblin not once but twice. The first was last October when they toured and did some of their songs and mainly the music they did for a lot of Dario Argento’s films including Deep Red (Profondo Rosso), Tenebre, Phenomena, and Suspiria, plus some of the music to Dawn Of The Dead which Argento had produced. It was an amazing show. This second time I got to see them (or a version of them but still with composer Claudio Simonetti) doing the entire score to Suspiria live. Originally I thought they were performing all of the main music to the film. I was wrong. They showed the entire movie and did the entire score! It was unbelievable! They’re doing a tour where they are doing both Suspiria and Dawn Of The Dead (I […]
