Commencing the 2019 March of the Movies

For those unaware, two years ago I started an annual tradition called March of the Movies, where I watch a film every day for the month of March and write reviews for them on the blog for people to peruse. The premise will be the same as it was last year: I watch a film at any part of a particular day and will release some sort of review, whether fully detailed or comically short, in that same specific day. I promise to kick myself into writing them far before 11:59 P.M.

As a bit of a preview for what’s to come (time-wise), expect movies and reviews to be done earlier in the day on weekdays and fairly late in the day on weekends. There will be some Saturdays, specifically, where reviews won’t be too long, just so I can get out a post for that day’s film on time. All of this is with the expectation that my irl job will continue giving me the typical shifts.

Since the blog has moved to include every interest of mine as a topic for posts, I will not try and squeeze in any anime films, as I did years prior, to suit the interests of my major audience. This isn’t to say I won’t watch any anime films, as I still like anime (believe it or not), but they likely won’t be as prevalent as in the last two years of this event.

I don’t have any special plans to give this year’s March any spice compared to the other years. I’m just gonna go ahead and do it normally. I’ll pick a movie and I’ll review it. I hope to see you here in the next thirty-one days!

(For those interested, I also have an archive for past and present films included in this event.)

Traveling Thoughts on World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade (Tirisfal Glades)

A few disclaimers before we move forward:

  • Traveling Thoughts is a means of putting down my thoughts in a bit-by-bit process that will eventually lead up to a formal review of the overall subject. These posts will be more personal than objective, though one should expect a good amount of both as is my personality of habit.

I was always charmed by the fact that one wakes up in a tomb with the undead race. It just feels very appropriate. Continue reading “Traveling Thoughts on World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade (Tirisfal Glades)”

Everyone, allow me to present the most popular race in all of World of Warcraft, based on player data provided by Blizzard on a yearly basis: humans. How delightfully arrogant. Continue reading “Traveling Thoughts on World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade (Elwynn Forest)”

Ranking the Oscars 2019 Best Picture Candidates

oscars 2019 1

One thing to clarify before I get going:

I have only seen six of the eight films nominated for Best Picture this year, with Vice and BlackKklansman being those out of the picture. I do not typically see every film nominated on a yearly basis, but I do try to watch as many as I can so long as they don’t feel like overinflated goop (interpret that as you may).

Highlighting the Best Anime Studios (Based on My Average Scores)

anime studio post 1

Some time ago, I took a look at the quality of light novel adaptations based on my average scores for those qualified. Today, I’m doing something similar, only instead of light novel adaptations, I’m broadening the scope of my research to individual anime studios. I’ve seen a countless number of anime posts detailing an individual’s favorite anime studio for boasting the best collection of anime and what have you, but I’ve never been able to join the conversation as I (perhaps naively) don’t often focus on the studios behind anime works. That changes now—or at the very least, I’ll know what studio is generally accommodating of my interests. Continue reading “Highlighting the Best Anime Studios (Based on My Average Scores)”

Asserting My Writing Efficiency – A Poorly-Veiled Blog Update

tenor

To those who have been visiting the blog on a semi-regular basis, you may have noticed that it’s seen some changes in the past couple weeks. The layout has changed to feel more modern (which means more bold) and the content has become more varied in type, both from a topical standpoint and a medium standpoint. I’ve finally found a groove in which this blog can finally be about a place for visual media (and football) and not just anime, which is something I’m immensely fond of. On top of that, the content has been rolling in at a rate unheard of for this blog outside of my annual March of the Movies block (the next of which is coming soon). I wanted to take the time to address these sudden changes. Continue reading “Asserting My Writing Efficiency – A Poorly-Veiled Blog Update”

Welcome to the part of Traveling Thoughts where I start to discuss things that I don’t actually have a lot of experience with. While I never made this apparent in previous posts (if I recall correctly), I was, at one point, a purely Horde player. When I first started out with the game, of course, I tried everything based on pure curiosity. When I got a groove for everything, it was basically all horde, except for the occasional draenei or gnome to spice it up. That said, compared to someone who’s never played World of Warcraft, I’ve played Alliance races quite often. Compared to what I’ve played within the Horde race, it’s a bite-size chunk of a gargantuan cookie. Continue reading “Traveling Thoughts on World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade (Teldrassil)”
