No pic for this one. I'll add one later if the fates allow!

Before the Beginning

Banes at 12:00AM, Nov. 3, 2016



One of the great things about the original Star Wars movies was the strong sense of a grand, adventurous, and terrible history before the movie started. So much is hinted at through Obi Wan Kenobi about the Jedi Knights, Anakin Skywalker, great friendships, laser swords, and terrible war and loss ...

Underdogs

Banes at 12:00AM, July 28, 2016



The Underdog is a staple of fiction. Protagonists, by and large, are Underdogs.

It probably makes them more relatable; how are we supposed to root for someone who either has, or easily gets whatever they want? Where is a character supposed to go unless they start out low?

Even the ...

Finding My Way to Paradise Falls

kawaiidaigakusei at 12:00AM, July 11, 2016


I was feeling emotional a few nights ago, so I did what I normally do in this situation–I went on YouTube and watched clips from sad children's movies. I picked the intro montage from Disney Pixar's UP as my poison of choice and it did the job ...

Mentors

Banes at 12:00AM, May 12, 2016



I like mentor characters.

Banes at 12:00AM, April 21, 2016



Lately I've been spending some time doing some light renovations on my house. I'm under some pressure with this stuff, and it's been very difficult, mentally.

For the most part, things are working out so far. These are renos that some people could pull off with barely ...
