Remember I said I was going to take suggestions for blog topics and whichever topic got the most votes, that's the one I'd write? I've changed my mind. I've decided to just write up every blog topic, in order of receipt. I've also decided that, going forward, I'll be more than happy to take suggestions … Continue reading Reader Requests!
This isn't going to be a formal review. I'm still processing what I saw, so this is more of a stream of consciousness kind of blog post. Last night I finally got to see War for the Planet of the Apes. I'm a month late to this party. I'm still geeking out a bit, not … Continue reading Apes Together Strong
It was one year ago today that Knight of Angels went online, the desperate solution of a refugee from another blog site that... apparently is working just fine now after all that back there. *shakes fist* But whatever. I'm quite happy here, building my own little space here on the interwebs across a wide variety … Continue reading 1st Blogiversary!
I've had some private messages sent to me with questions in regard to some comments I made in previous blog posts. I've checked with the individuals who asked the questions (whose identities will be kept anonymous), and they were amenable to me answering in public forum. I do it this way because I figure someone … Continue reading Some Clarifications
I awoke this morning to learn that I've been awarded The Unique Blogger Award by friend and fellow winner Midu Hadi at Midu Reads. Thank you, Midu. I'm not certain I'm worthy of any such claims, but I accept the honor in the spirit in which it is given. The Rules *Share the link … Continue reading The Unique Blogger Award
I've decided that I need to slowly replace some of my posters and lesser grade wall art with canvas. It just looks classier, and it's far more durable on the long haul than, say, movie posters. And you can find quality canvas art for pretty much anything you can name. Or so I thought. It turns … Continue reading The Quest for Monster Art
Leave it to the House of Mouse to find new and creative ways to suck away my time and money, even after I've drawn lines in the sand, and make me say "thank you." For example, just based on the opening track alone, the new DuckTales is drawn badly, animated badly, and even the theme song is … Continue reading Take My Money, Disney
You could probably blame this on Tolkien, at least this time. At least in part. As a direct result of the weekly chapter posts about The Silmarillion, I've been brushing up on the Professor's personal views of Christianity. First that led me through some of his famous letters. Then somewhere along the lines I slipped … Continue reading Revisiting Old Notes
It doesn't seem like that long ago that I discovered the Walt Disney Records Legacy Collection soundtracks... and promptly ordered them. What I couldn't figure out is how I'd missed them when they were first released, and why there were only a dozen titles. I mean, why stop? There are two built-in audiences for these … Continue reading Disney Legacy Collection Returns!
It really is the little things in life that makes me happy. Take this, for example. It arrived today. This is my reward for having survived the family reunion last weekend. Everyone say it with me now... "Ash nazg durbatulûk, ash nazg gimbatul, ash nazg thrakatulûk, agh burzum-ishi krimpatul"
