Two Things!

1) If you're not watching're making my hart sad. :( This is an amazing show and for anyone that ever made fun Matthew McConaughey, I challenge you to watch this and not think how great of an actor he is. I'd say the same thing about Woody, but if you've ever seen Natural Born Killers, yeah, you pretty much already knew that about him.

2) What is happening to this show? 
More and more things about this season are bothering me, it's like they're spreading to fill. 
A) Carl's "growing up" episode. I feel like Carl should be beyond/over it. And how could he be so proficient and smart about killing Zombies and clearing houses/rooms in previous seasons, but make these silly mistakes? Truthfully, at some point, I was hoping that Rick was dead; if you beat a man near death so he's unconscious for that long *Brain Swell* yep, he-gonna-die in ZOMBIE WORLD.
B) Beth NEEDS A DRINK??? This was horrible to watch, but the whole time I was hoping it was her 21st birthday and then at least you could weave it into the plot, but NOPE. Then Daryl (the tracker, who meanwhile could've been finding others since Michoone got it done in quick time) get's drunk too? Again, I get what they were trying to do, but it all kinda felt forced. 
C) CAROL'S RETURN?!?!?!?  How the hell? What the &^%# and in the middle of the forest no less, exactly when she's needed. I nearly jumped out of my seat with this magical B.S. Seriously, writers of the world, you know what this is called.....
D) Tyreese, well, he's just the worst adult ever. He abandons the children (you two stay here with the INFANT, back to back, while I leave; oh, and if there's trouble, shoot and I'll come running...meanwhile you will've scattered or died and I'm likely not to find you. WTF!!! REMEMBER the little girl who ran from the zombies a few seasons back? Yep. What happened to here when Daryl couldn't find her...ya know, the TRACKER? I couldn't believe it and the show's rationality for his action was RETARDED. And what's with the one girl now killing bunnies? Why do we need a potential psychopathic subtext storyline...for a kid?
E) Glenn, who's really one of the smartest characters on the show, gets strategically handy-caped: passes out, taken by truck SEVERAL HOURS meaning Xmiles from his last assumed whereabouts of Maggie, only to have it, once needed for the return, then rendered useless, thereby forcing them to walk. Oh, and it was SOOOO important from them to save the world by going the other way that the new characters suddenly give up their own journey to help Glenn find his wife? Really? WTF??? AHHHGGGG! So Glenn is now dealing with the newest and worst characters on the show. I know everyone likes the new GI Joe Guy since he's from the comics, but he's annoying me—though maybe there's hope for him. His girlfriend looks trashy, an overall cop-out by writers. Honestly, she looks like a B-Move Reject and must die after spraining her ankle. And the dude with the mullet, yea, well, even if he is a scientist...not a Young Earth "Scientist" but a real one, which is laughable, he's got to die and DIE SOON. 

Lets just keep this season to Maggie, cause so far her's is the only believeable storyline.

Finally, my review of Star Wars: The Force Awakens

This is going to be a stream of thought, rather than a planned out, book-report style review. I hope to cover several points, but, if I miss or neglect some, I'm sure you won't care—you've already read far too many reviews of this movie anyway. So, does it really matter that yet another unknown is throwing his Two Cents into the wind for whoever to read? I didn't think so. And, to further the point, the next time something like Star Wars gets placed in my lap, maybe then I'll have real room to critique. This is just for fun and because I'm a geek. For me, blogging about this stuff is the next best thing to sitting around with friends and going over and over all the little details for hours on end. I mean, I'd like to stay married. :)

Ok, first things first: I enjoyed this movie. To me, it was a solid B (reasons to follow) I enjoyed the return to Old Movie Magic. I enjoyed the equal mix of CGI and FX and Costumes and Settings and all that jazz. It was good.…

The NaNoWriMo Diet—Guest Post: Michael R. Fletcher Author of Beyond Redemption

  The NaNoWriMo Diet

It's tempting to let this devolve into a humor piece and talk about my love affair with whiskey and how sometimes, when my brain won't shut-up and let me sleep, I bludgeon it into submission with liberal doses of Jameson. But no. I'm gonna keep this serious. Well, mostly serious.

My suspicion is that successful writers all have at least a little OCD. Who else would sit for hours on end mashing away at the keyboard with their face? What, you don't type like that? Weird.

Smarter writers (or at least those capable of obsessing over more than one thing at a time) will pay attention to their physical and health-related needs as well as their daily word count. Unfortunately I'm not one of those. I can either obsess about my health or work on a book. In the past I would write a book and then, in the time between writing and editing, exercise like mad in an attempt to shed some of the gained pudge. I used to joke that I gained ten pounds with every novel …


I have seen it. Better than expected.
