I Swear I Have a Good Excuse!

Posted by Leah on 3/11/2019 12:48:27 AM

Dear Everyone, I’m sorry it’s been so long. To say I’ve missed you and writing here, is an understatement. I feel as though I’ve neglected a little piece of myself. But it’s all been for good reason. Over the past year I’ve had one health issue after another,and none of them are connected (except they’ve all happened to me, so I guess they ARE connected). I got a concussion in early 2018. Usually someone with this type of minor head trauma would be long healed by now; I have not. I’ve had too many concussions in my life (I’m accident prone), and at last count, this one was my sixth or seve...

I don't Know How Long it Will Be

Hi All

I'm so sorry for not updating this sooner. Back in February I got a concussion. This isn't my first (in fact it's the 5th or 6th), so I'm having ongoing serious issues. I'm also taking a LONG time to recover.

One of the main issues is the inability to look at a screen of any type for more than a few minutes, hence why it took so long for me to write this to begin with. Of course that also means I can't watch many, if any movies right now, so I won't be adding anything new here for awhile. I don't know how long awhile will be.

I will try to update this as I recover, but m...

A Quick Apology to You

Posted by Leah on 1/21/2018 10:59:34 AM

        Hi! Thank you for visiting my website. I hope, for the most part, you enjoy it.
 
        I just wanted to let you know that I’m sorry. I’m sorry I haven’t been posting many new reviews, and I’m sorry that the most recent “news” item is from November. That’s certainly not the way I want things to be, and I hope to have them back to somewhat normal within the next month.
 
        As happens from time to time, life has gotten in the way lately. I’ve had more health issues than I could’ve anticipated, which has kept me from getting on the computer much. Plus my dog has been ...

A Christmas Story

Dear A Christmas Story,

In a world far over-saturated with everything Christmas, (especially movies about Christmas) you stand out. Not an easy feat, to be sure. But you can’t help it, can you? You’re just so delightful, witty, and cute. No ...

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

        From the first seconds of the first trailer I knew this film was one I had to see. The three main cast members alone were enough to hook me: Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson and Sam Rockwell? What’s not to like with a cast like that? Not...

Life After Ex

        After what can only be described as an extensive and lengthy fight, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on June 26, 2015 to legalize same-sex marriage in all 50 states. This victory was hard fought, and had more back and forth than the world reco...

The Animation Show of Shows

        Anyone who spends any amount of time on my website will quickly realize what a fan of animation I am. It doesn’t matter to me if it’s hand drawn, computer done, puppets, stop motion or any other form, I feel that animation as a story telli...

Gunderson's

        Just the thought of ever having a rare disease scares me. Think about it: the term alone, at face value means that whatever the affliction is is so new it barely has a name, never mind a cure. Of course that means that there’s not y...
