the target pothole chronicles

for those of you who follow my facebook or twitter feed (@itslvg3) you know my months of chronicling the "target pothole" saga through pictures. I felt it needed its own picture blog so please enjoy: for now the first and last of a long journey

.... and done!!!!

why Green Lantern matters in 10 min or less

Summer movie season is upon us and while i hope to have a full, properly prepared blog soon dedicated to my favorite summer pastime I would like to quickly make a statement about what I consider my "most Important" movie of the Season. In a summer filled with superhero films and other blockbusters that are looking to lighten your wallets, there is one that stands out so much more to me and I feel should also stand out to anyone who really enjoys epic sci fi on the big screen. That film is without question, green lantern. Why you may ask? for one reason this movie is a HUGE gamble for DC and warner bros. I'm a pretty big GL fan and I understand the Epicness and scope that the stories this movie is based upon represents. This is not just another superhero in a costume out to save the city dedicated to their protection alone, but instead this character represents a larger sci fi universe that is being tested on general audiences this summer. if its a success there may be plenty of great world exploring stories for years to come but if its a failure i guarantee the only superhero movies you see (especially from DC/Warner Bros) will take place in cities that resemble NYC in some form or another. I could write for days on this subject and i probably will in the future but for now I will just simply say If your a lover of SCI FI and you want to see different stories go check out green lantern this June 17th. whether or not it sucks is beyond the point. the genre it represents is much more important.

...see ya when i see ya....whew!

30 minutes and counting

So here we are my friends. its been a while. when i started writing here i promised myself that despite any boredom/writer's block/chaos i would try my best to write about 3 articles per month to keep myself entertained. In 30 minutes it will be midnight and i will have failed miserably at that. i don't like failing much, so my attempt right now is to throw out 3 posts (this one included over the next 30 min.) I make no promises on content with the exception of one, that this will be extremely rushed and poorly written. I thank you in advance for your understanding and support.
          since topics are not my strong suit right now this first post will help get you in tune with what goes through my mind at any given moment. here are some random thoughts of mine in no particular order:

- i think wearing a snuggie backwards and pretending your a hoodless Jedi is about the coolest thing a person can do.

- burritos are a gift from the Almighty above

- personally i think there would be nothing funnier than to see two elderly gentlemen dressed in Hawaiian shirts have a duel to the death

- Christmas is awesome

- i ate a pizza from Cosi the other was delicious

- I've never seen my dad and Jake the snake Roberts in the same place at the same time

that's it for now, 2 more to go.... see you when i see you ppl...which should be in about 10 minutes
