Trouble in Mid-Guard;The Path to the Dark Tower


Stephen King’s epic fantasy tale of Roland Deschain and his quest for the Dark Tower has finally escaped from development hell and has made its way to theaters. It joins other adaptations of King’s novels, but is perhaps be the most crucial one yet. The eight Dark Tower novels connect to many of King’s other works, including, but not limited to: The Stand, It, The Shining, Desperation, The Regulators, Salem’s Lot & Christine. With this film possibly being the first of many sequels (and a prequel TV series), the pressure is on for it to be a hit… Continue reading Trouble in Mid-Guard;The Path to the Dark Tower

DRAWING LINES! Week in Review 10/23/13

“I vant to suck your blood!”
nbcHappy happy Halloween, Halloween, Halloween, happy happy Halloween, Silver Shamrock! Have you got your costumes ready yet? For the last few years I’ve been extremely lazy when it comes to dressing up – I just bought a Dracula cape and when the sun goes down on October 31st I throw it on over my cardigan sweater and skinny jeans and Wha-La! Instant Hipster Vampire! No messy make up to deal with afterwards, nothing to impair my vision or trip on, it’s the perfect solution. Okay, okay I suck at dressing up. I can’t pretend anymore. I’ve been living a lie and need to change my ways.

The only thing missing now are some bullet points to make my life even sweeter! Oh look! There they are!!!
