Quote of the Day 29-Oct-2014: On The Veil Between Worlds

Courtesy of Ms. Morgenstern’s official site

“It’s said that All Hallows’ Eve is one of the nights when the veil between the worlds is thin – and whether you believe in such things or not, those roaming spirits probably believe in you, or at least acknowledge your existence, considering that it used to be their own. Even the air feels different on Halloween, autumn-crisp and bright.”

In Which We Are Almost Back To The Future

Marty McFly: where are you now? People have wondered for decades now when Marty McFly will make himself known to the world. People have wondered when he will appear in his DeLorean, straight out of 1985.

Well, okay, maybe not. But, people have wondered when we would have hoverboards. My friends, the time is nigh. They do exist, and with a little financial backing via Kickstarter, Hendo will make them commonplace!

John Wick

“It’s not what you did, son. It’s who you did it too.”

I’m not a huge fan of Keanu Reeves. His movies can be fun, but generally speaking the only character he seems to do really well is Neo from the Matrix.

That said, don’t piss him off.

Minor spoilers below the trailer, as always.

Quote of the Day 27-Oct-2014: On Halloween Confusion

“Halloween was confusing. All my life my parents said, ‘Never take candy from strangers.’ And then they dressed me up and said, ‘Go beg for it.’ I didn’t know what to do! I’d knock on people’s doors and go, ‘Trick or treat.’ ‘No thank you.'”

Quote of the Day 24-Oct-2014: On Learning Your Craft

Mr George R R Martin of Game of Thrones fame

“I believe that a writer learns from every story he writes, and when you try different things, you learn different lessons. Working with other writers, as in Hollywood or in a shared world series, will also strengthen your skills, by exposing you to new ways of seeing the work, and different approaches to certain creative challenges.”

Conversations with Riley #26: Socks, How I Missed Thee

Me: Yes, um… why?
Riley: <dive bombs my socks face first, then proceeds push her face against the floor using my socks as a cushion> They smell good! They smell like you!
