Book Review: The Legend Series

Posted on April 25th, 2014

So I have been on a bit of a reading kick lately. Ricky keeps giving me a hard time about it, because I am on Goodreads and they have an annual reading challenge. Last year, my goal was 25 books, and I topped it by 1. This year, my goal is 30,...

Return To Amy's Baking Company

Posted on April 14th, 2014

If you've followed my blog for very long, you remember the whole Amy's Baking Company fiasco. There was an episode of Kitchen Nightmares with Gordon Ramsay where he supposedly did something he never does - he walked away. The episode went viral...

Phoenix Film Festival Review: Oculus

Posted on April 9th, 2014

Well, here it is - my first negative review. I wasn't really a fan of this movie. I went in with a lot of expectations, because from the reviews I've seen, it sounded like it was pretty good. It's got great reviews from critics on Rotten...

Phoenix Film Festival Review: The Trouble With The Truth

Posted on April 8th, 2014

I'm not sure, but this could possibly end up being my favorite film of the festival this year. It's definitely in the top three. It's funny, because The Trouble With The Truth is a simple movie, but also quite complicated. The majority of the...

Phoenix Film Festival Review: Billy Club

Posted on April 6th, 2014

Batter up! Ok, I just keep using that phrase because it's baseball-related, and I don't necessarily know all that much about baseball. Probably just enough to be dangerous. But, apparently that's all it takes in this movie. Billy Club is about...

Phoenix Film Festival Review: The Shower

Posted on April 5th, 2014

Ok, so it's possible that I am already a bit biased about this movie, since I started tweeting with the cast and director before I even saw it! In my defense, however, it was on my list of movies to see this weekend even before that. After...

Phoenix Film Festival Review: God's Pocket

Posted on April 5th, 2014

This was the second of two deep movies in a row tonight at the film festival! I sure know how to pick them. Or something. This was one of the last films that Philip Seymour Hoffman did before he passed away. He's such a great actor, and this...

How I Met Your Mother: The Finale

Posted on April 1st, 2014

So, first things first. Obviously, this post contains SPOILERS if you haven’t seen the finale of How I Met Your Mother yet. So if you don’t want to be spoiled, DO NOT READ ANY FURTHER. Now that that’s out of the way… I didn’t start watching...

Book Review: Divergent Trilogy

Posted on November 5th, 2013

So, a while back, after reading the Hunger Games trilogy, I came across a list of books to read that were supposed to be similar. I started reading this book called Divergent, which has actually become quite popular since then. It's actually...

Media Roundup: Intense, White House Down, Identity Thief

Posted on July 16th, 2013

Woohoo, I’m actually getting week 2 done here! Maybe this new feature will stick around. So, let’s see… what have I been chewing on this week? Well, not literally chewing, but you know what I mean. Here we go! Music Let’s start with music,...

The Ocean At The End Of The Lane

Posted on July 2nd, 2013

You guys are going to get sick of me talking about Neil Gaiman. I’m just going to put that out there right now. I’ve kind of become a little… fascinated? Obsessed? With the man’s work since I met him last week. I really do regret now that...

LIVE From Amy's Baking Company!

Posted on May 21st, 2013

So, first I have to admit that I stole the name of this blog post from Ricky‘s post about the same thing, just because I think it’s the perfect name. Now that that’s out there, let me start the story… Unless you have been living under a rock,...

Disconnect: A Review

Posted on April 24th, 2013

So last week I received an email about free sneak preview passes to see the movie Disconnect. Since free movies are always good and I’d had a lot going on and appreciated the opportunity to break away for a while, I accepted the passes and...
