So let’s make it good.
Welcome, to the inside of my brain. It very rarely makes any sense, but I’ll try to prevent the nonsensical from happening.
A little about me and why this blog exists.
So a few weeks ago I decided I wanted to make a blog, mainly for the reason everyone wants to make one; to get their name out there. I want to write, but if I’m a no one from nowhere, chances of me being taken seriously are very much slim.
I agonized for a few days wondering with little hope what I could write about. Don’t get me wrong I’ll be the first one to jump on the “let’s talk about me all day” bandwagon just as quick as the next person, (a little what I’m doing now) but who actually wants to hear about this no one from nowhere?
About a week ago I was watching the stage production of “Into The Woods” and started thinking about how much better it is than the movie. That’s where it hit me, “Play vs. Movie!” And then my uncultured brain reminded me I’ve only seen a total of three plays, and just one of which was live.
“Have no fear!” My brain told me, in the voice of Robert Westenberg’s Prince Charming. “You read books.”
My sleep addled self thought that was a valid point and nodded in agreement that I do, indeed read books, but for awhile I couldn’t, for the life of me, see the connection.
Later that evening it finally hit me.
I love books, and I love movies.
The thing I adore most, though, is breaking things apart and finding holes and inconsistencies. (Someday I may try to voice my “Doctor Who” or “Star Trek” theories.)
So why not pit my beloved books against their sometimes, but not always awful, movie adaptions.
Well, I truly didn’t expect that no one had ever done it, so I looked around and saw most blogs or sites dedicated to it were for the Young Adult series coming out nowadays. There’s nothing wrong with that; I’m all for some Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, and Katniss Everdeen, but what about the more obscure things. “Logan’s Run,” for example, great movie, my mother-in-law got me the book for Christmas, and I think my mind is still recovering from that explosion, but I’ll get to that later.
Long story, short answer. Books against movies. Two of my favorite things in the world. I’ll try to do it justice, but I feel like I have to say; I really am just a lover of these things. I don’t know the first thing about making a movie, and as much as I want to be a writer, I know I’m never done learning.
However personally, I’d rather listen to a review from an average person than the people who said “The Sound of Music” was terrible.
So with all that being said, I put myself out here, for you the average Joe or Jane, and I hope you enjoy. But hey, if you don’t, congratulations on seeing past my pretense of knowing something.
Bear with me while I’m getting the site together.
