So now that we’ve thoroughly talked about my past, perhaps it’s time we talked about the present, and perhaps even the future. You may be thinking, what exactly it is I do for a living besides writing about my traumatic upbringing filled with fake blood and violence. Well, I’ve been working in construction for a number of years now. Yeah, that’s right, the individual who spent so much time watching the dismemberment of others actually works by putting things together and creating new objects, the irony. In essence, I just really like working with my hands, and this particular job allows me to do that on a daily basis. If you want to find out more about the work I specifically do, you can see some of our results over at www.expediteconstruction.com
Beyond the thing that I do that makes money, I spend a lot of it when it comes to movies, movie memorabilia and other things. I edit certain web pages when it comes to movie information, and other random acts that allow me to further indulge on my passion. No matter what the item is, if it’s movie related, I have something to do with it. It’s just something that I can never get tired of. No matter what I wind up doing on a day to day basis, I still just thoroughly enjoy popping in a new movie, or going to the theater and allowing myself to get lost in the creation put to film.
Whether it’s an epic series based on long standing lore, or a new and intricate idea for a story to tell, that’s what it all boils down to. It’s a series of stories. Some meant to scare us, some meant to get an emotional reaction out of us, but all meant to have you walking away either questioning, or feeling the leftover emotion that you just experienced. And whether that’s through a new kids movie, or a love movie, or any other random thought put to screen, you can always bank on having some form of reaction. Now that’s not to say that I simply enjoy every last movie I’ve ever seen, oh heck no. I have seen some truly bad movies in my time, but even in that, you walk away thinking of why it was bad.
Was it bad acting? Writing? Or a combination of things that just turned out to make the experience one that you didn’t enjoy. Even in those situations I’m never turned off by the idea of movies, because even in a bad situation, you still have something new that you’re walking away with. And I think that’s one of the true magics that movies offer. You always have a way to see something differently, to pay attention to something new. And when watching a movie, you always have the capability to focus on some different aspect each time you re-watch your favorite, or least favorite offerings. I will always be a movie buff, and I will always want to share why.
