July Planning Stickers for the Big MAMBI

Posted on Updated on

Okay, so I got really angry at a woman on Etsy who charge me $3 for shipping and when the envelope arrived, it was $.47 in postage.

It wasn’t a special envelope.

It wasn’t a branded envelope.

It was a yellow envelope that was probably laying around her house leftover from somebody’s birthday card.

After that I swore off Etsy.  If I want stickers, I will make my own.  I bought me a Silhouette and set out to work.

The good news is that you are my test subjects.

Here is a batch for July. These are for the large Happy Planner from MAMBI.

I tuned in to the Maya and Marty show and witnessed this awesomeness.  Enjoy.

Killing Rusty Wouldn’t Be a Major Crime

Posted on Updated on

I like this show.  I mean I really do.

The characters are rich and dynamic.  The plots are credible, the acting is very LAish, and the stories are engaging.

However…and I insert the pregnant pause here.

There is always one character that could be killed off the show and no one would miss him. On this show it is Rusty. This kid is always coming into the scene with his teenage angst and problems. He actually creates more issues than anything and he is a pain in the puss.

One issue that I have with him is that Sharon, the Captain in charge of the group, spends more time with this kid than she has her own. Everything with him is a major problem or a situation which gets dragged on episode after episode. I bet if he got a splinter, there would be a seven minute scene with him worried it would turn into Necrotizing Faciitis.

I say kill him off.

Hold on…hold on…hold on.  Before you decide I should be killed off, allow me to elaborate.

The whole story line with him and druggie Mama is tired and it is played out.  It begs to be ended with the boy living with a police Captain and having a manipulative mother.  The new sub plot of her being pregnant and wanting Rusty to support her is silly.  He is in school.  He doesn’t have a job and it is going to be a hot mess with Sharon. The two will not mix well.

He is great as the comedic foil…I mean, I understand that he is a ray of light in the darkness of their jobs, but he is annoying as hell.

Okay, your turn, let me have it. Only after you watch this clip.

Who let the Dogs out on GOT?

Posted on Updated on

Wait…wait…wait…Hold up! I have a plot issue here that I would like to discuss.

1. Who put Ramsay in the middle of the cage with the dogs and who let the dogs out?
2. If (whoever) sat Ramsay in there opened the cages, why didn’t Ramsay tell the dogs to sic’em?

Especially considering the dogs have a taste for human flesh and hadn’t been fed in  7 days; they would have eaten anything that walked in the cage.

Shooting the Finger at the 5th Wave

Posted on Updated on

What did I just watch?

“The human race stands on the brink of extinction as a series of alien attacks decimate the planet, causing earthquakes, tsunamis and disease. Separated from her family, Ohio teenager Cassie Sullivan (Chloë Grace Moretz) will do whatever it takes to reunite with her brother Sam. Fate leads her to form an alliance with Evan Walker (Alex Roe), a mysterious young man who may be her last hope. Forced to trust each other, Cassie and Evan fight for survival during the fifth assault from the invaders.”

Yeah, this is more of that near Dystopian future where the fate of he world lies in the hands of some kids from Ohio. One which keeps crying and the other who wants his wittle bear. (Yeah, not a typo).

Really?

Shoot me now.

This movie is mostly about a girl running in the woods, who hooked up with a really hot stranger that is way too good looking to be real…because he isn’t.  He is an alien.  A hot alien.  An alien I would like to teach the ways of human love.

The plot is weak.

Alex Roe PictureThe acting is mediocre, but that alien dude is worth the ticket.  His name is Alex Roe.

It has wasted the talents of that sexy ass Liev Schreiber and Maria Bello who unfortunately looks like she spent a year in the Arabian sun. Soft lighting would have done wonders for her in this movie.  I mean she is such a beautiful woman but he makeup and lighting was horrific.

So was the acting.

And the plot.

I know I said it once already, but jeeezzzzz, it was that bad. The whole glowing alien head with the parasite attached, but the kids could only see it with implanted chip in the back of thier necks.  One girl decided something is not right, then removed her chip.  Bingo!  Now she is glowing with a green head and alien parasite.

“Whoa!  It’s me!  I’m not an alien,” she yells.

The other kid removes his chip. “Whoa, you know me, I am not an alien either!”

Stop it.  Stop it right now.

I am going to go a write something.

Amen to the Preacher

Posted on

I don’t know anything about the comic book, but I do know I love Tulip, Arseface, and the lot of motley, rag tag characters in this AMC series produced by Seth Rogen.

Yeah, that arseface.

Based on the popular cult comic book franchise of the same name, Preacher is a supernatural, twisted and darkly comedic drama that follows a West Texas preacher named Jesse Custer, who is inhabited by a mysterious entity that causes him to develop a highly unusual power — one being closely tracked by two mysterious agents known as Fiore and DeBlanc. Jesse, his badass ex-girlfriend Tulip and an Irish vampire named Cassidy come together, and when they do, they are thrust into a crazy world populated by a cast of characters from Heaven, Hell and everywhere in between.

I am simply happy to watch something fresh.

Fulfilling a promise to his deceased father, one-time outlaw Jesse Custer returns home to West Texas to take over his dad’s church. Jesse’s mission, however, becomes twisted when his body is overcome by a cryptic force that unleashes within him a highly unconventional power. Together with hell-raising ex-girlfriend Tulip and Irish vagabond Cassidy, the preacher-in-training embarks on a journey to find God in a world inhabited by holy, hellish, and everything-in-between characters.

The darkly comedic “Preacher” is based on Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s popular 1990s comic book franchise of the same name. Executive producers include Sam Catlin (“Breaking Bad”), and Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (“Superbad,” “Neighbors”)

Preacher airs on Sunday nights on AMC.
