Deadpool (2016) Through a Kid’s Eyes

This post contains bad, foul, filthy and unacceptable language - the words that “will curve your spine, grow hair on your hands and maybe, even bring us, God help us, peace without honor.”

This is not a post for children.  Kids, take a hike.
This is also not a post for those adults who are offended by this type of language.  Do yourself a favor, and go read some of my cute stuff before moral outrage can kick in.
Just about everything else on this blog is clean…Stupid sometimes, but clean.

And Spoilers too, big ones!  Really, go read something else.

End of Warning.

Up the Lake: Animals Part 1

Those Alarming Animals
Feared Creatures

Up the Lake was situated deep in the mountainous woods of NY, allowing many local beasts to leave eternal impressions on those of us who resided there. 

Classic human trauma is usually associated with spiders and snakes.  Naturally, these were frequently encountered. Spiders tended to have time shares in all of the living quarters, and a snake once had a regular enough pattern in its life to earn the nickname "Five O'clock Charlie" for its daily aquatic crossings of the swimming area.

The classics were only just the tip of the iceberg, though.

Up the Lake- Not a Diary

Last summer, when Rosa took her Mom back to Peru, I spent two weeks Up the Lake with Anabelle.   It was the first time I spent anything resembling that stretch of time in over twenty-five years.  I expected it would easily spawn posts in the form of a day by day travelogue, similar to all of our other vacations.

Amazing and wonderful though the stay was, it didn’t, because Up the Lake doesn’t work that way.

X-Men: First Class Through a Kid's Eyes

Bryan Singer came back from Superman and the mutant franchise recovered.  The less said about who succeeded him over at DC films, the better.

X-men: Apocalypse came out this past weekend, and I know some still look for my advice on superhero films...

Or at least hope to enjoy the train wreck of a good rant.
