I Got Next: Saved by the Bell Interactive Game

A Saved by the Bell interactive game on YouTube?! The Future is now! This is an interactive game from Fine Brothers Entertainment (ya know, the people who do those great ‘Teens React To’ videos). It’s a pretty cute little game that I suggest you check out. One down fall is you can’t play as Mr. Dewey who (as we all know) is the greatest character in Saved by the Bell history. Enjoy! https://youtu.be/CumqNwQsChM

Simple in the City: Entertainment

Originally posted on Minimal Millennial:
Living in a small apartment in the city has some major perks, but entertaining can be tough when you only have a few square feet to spare. A typical Saturday at our apartment looks like this: sitting on the floor around the coffee table tossing game dice with six other people. Sometimes we pull together all of the chairs we can find (and chairs that friends bring) and squeeze to fit around our dining table. Most of us hold our drinks because there’s no table space available thanks to the extensive board games we like to play. We have one of the largest apartments in our group of friends (650 square feet), so we’re most often the gathering place. For as fun as it can be, it can get overwhelming. So how do you keep it simple when it comes to entertainment outside the apartment? Why it’s not always best to stay in My husband and I love our evenings together in the apartment. But, since I work from home all week and don’t usually have…

Film Review – Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016): Jordan’s Take

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice Directed by Zack Snyder Starring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Jesse Eisenberg, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Jeremy Irons, Scoot McNairy, Laurence Fishburne Review by Jordan (for Eddie’s take click here) “You don’t need to forge a silver bullet. But if you do, you don’t need to depend on the kindness of monsters.” Movies aren’t real. There’s a statement bound to astound no one. They can however force the viewer to suspend disbelief, and for their running time appear as authentic as the very pavement outside the cinema complex, regardless of plot, setting or genre. The key is commitment to idiosyncrasies and detail in characters and world creation, and suspense (not an element reserved for horror films) to keep the viewer focused. Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice is not a movie that feels real. Nor does it even feel like a movie that deserves to be taken seriously. From the very earliest scenes intended to draw sad emotions as the hook…

Drama Kings and Queens

Growing up, I never had the opportunity to watch many television series, despite some of them winning a number of Golden Globes and Emmy awards. I had a curfew to adhere to when I was growing up. Completion of school work and assignments at a certain time, helping out with household chores at a particular time, and watching television at an even more limited time! I used to have only an hour’s worth of TV time when I was growing up! My extended TV time came when technology became more advanced and everything became more accessible. Now, everything you want and/or need is really at your fingertips with a few taps on the keyboard and a few clicks on the mouse. One day, I found the solution to my troubles.

Oscars 2016, Movie Review: When Marnie Was There

Originally posted on Ice the Burn:
Studio Ghibli. Enough said. While I want to focus this review mostly on the film, it’s difficult to do so without also addressing Studio Ghibli, one of the greatest animation studios, and its current hiatus situation when it comes to the film’s impact and importance of being nominated at the Academy Awards. In any case, I’ll start with the review first. And to point out: I watched this movie in Japanese with English subtitles. I don’t know how voters watched this film when voting for it to be nominated (and voting for the winning film), but I’m sure the difference in voice acting and adaptation of lines and interpretation will certainly have some impact on the experience. It’s a little strange to tackle this film when seeing only one version – especially the Japanese version, but I’m going for it anyway. Check it out: Anna Sasaki, a tomboyish preteen, lives with foster parents in Sapporo, Japan. She is distant from them mostly, and after having an asthma attack at…

Into the Heart & Mind of a Comedian

As I laughed at another one of Jerry Mabbott‘s brilliant posts, I truly admire the talented man for bringing laughter into our cynical world. Today, I am fortunate enough to have Jerry agreeing to an interview with MiddleMe. Before I burst into another round of teary laughter, I better put on my serious face and erhmm, start questioning. Hi Jerry, so great to have you here today! Share with us who is Jerry Mabbott. Hi, Kally. Thank you for having me! I think first and foremost I have a very deep love for God. I always have. I’ve been married to a wonderful woman named Heather for 18 years. She’s a comedian as well. Go figure. I have three wonderful children and seven precious grandchildren. I’ve always been funny, so I think those people in my life help define me. Plus I love Popeyes Chicken. You mentioned that you are a comedian, out of curiosity, how did you become one? Great question. It was purely accidental. I had never even gone…

You Want to Know Why Writers are Crazy?

Originally posted on That Weird Brown Girl:
We have a million different people, with completely different personalities, all living in a thousand different worlds, feeling a spectrum of emotions, uttering countless words ever know to man, all of this, trapped inside our single, seemingly irrelevant, soul. We find it hard to grapple with reality, when the only reality that we know are infused with the makings of our fantasy addled brain, thus rendering the actual world as mundane or just plain boring. We find it hard to be vocal about a good many things, while, at the same time, find it even harder to keep them bottled up, thus, making writing a curiously calm realm, between the comfort of our thoughts, and the scrutiny of others. We fall in love, not with physical appearances, but with the thoughts, words, and feelings of a character, making them seem more real, while the people around us reduce to hallucinations. We strive to bring out the beauty and the terrible truth of something trivial, making it seem like…
