Been Forever

I've been meaning to write a blog for a while now, but didn't want one filled with emotion. Been a rough month for me personally and going it alone has been tough. The usual suspects have been absent from my life, but most of all people have just been busy. Sure, I could quote some internet meme about how if people care they'd make time for me, but that's not always true. I've been there.

Of course, but for four years, I essentially became a slave to routine. I didn't go out with friends, didn't drink, didn't even really know what I was doing when I relaxed. I stared at screens, playing games or watching the same movies I'd seen before or ones that looked just like it.

Boo!Green Room - Run-of-the-mill claustrophobic thriller. Silly script, but solid cast makes it work.Rams - Icelandic drama about two brothers, their farm and the loss of their rams. That's it. Wrestling - Short by director of Rams. Odd homosexual tale that just feels weird.3-Iron - A Kore…
