Gym Motivation–The Video Series

I’m a sucker for loud, bumping music when I lift. Anyone who sees my instagram videos knows that. The music varies from rock to pop to hip hop. As long as it bumps, grooves or soars. Or as Tommy Haverford would say, “Is it a banger?” But I’ve also become a fan of a particular youtube genre for my workouts. No, not that one. I’m talking about the gym motivation super clips. The videos of speeches, workouts, inspiring images all spliced together. Guys yelling loudly about their success and how they achieved it. I’ll admit. I’m a sucker for them. … Continue reading Gym Motivation–The Video Series

Spurred By New Series: A Watchmen (movie) Rewatch

Back when the Watchmen movie came out in 2009, I wasn’t really into comics much yet. I grew up on baseball cards, not comics. In college, I got into some of the darker comics from Image and Caliber and such. The Crow, Spawn, etc. Still, when Watchmen came along, I went to the theater to watch it. I even did a midnight showing for this back when they were a thing. I had not read the comic series before seeing the movie. I’m not sure if it was the late night, or the beers with supper before hand, but I … Continue reading Spurred By New Series: A Watchmen (movie) Rewatch
