“Box of Peaches On The Passenger Side, Free At Last.”

-“Free At Last,” Jeff Black. Free. If you look in any dictionary, it will tell you that to be “free” is to not be under someone/something else’s control. It’s to be released from slavery, or confinement. Now, Webster’s is all fine and well, but how many people honestly believe they’re free? Oh, no. Here she goes, I […]

We Go Together Or We Don’t Go Down At All

–All Time Low, “A Love Like War (ft. Vic Fuentes)”   So yeah. I lied. I’ve been gone for the last…nine days or so, but that’s because it’s been manic for me as of late, though I suppose in my line of work, I shouldn’t worry when it gets busy, but when it stops. Reviews, […]

In every moment, I find something to be completely elated about and something that saddens me to some degree. When I look at the young child I love so dearly, I see her […]

Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly.

“Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly.” It’s the title of an episode of my favorite television show. It’s the title of my workout playlist. More than that, it’s one of my many mantras. I like to look at it as a statement that speaks true volumes: NO ONE IS GOING TO RESCUE YOU. YOU HAVE TO […]

(Goonies) Never Say Die in This Heart of Darkness

“The mind of man is capable of anything–because everything is in it, all the past as well as all the future.” -Marlow in Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness In the face of the unknown, humans display a typical instinct that’s needed for survival: fight or flight. Now that’s not to say when you’re truly frightened […]
