It’s been almost a year since I started this website, and I have been slacking in the writing department. I definitely want to start updating this website a lot more. And that starts NOW.
Possible Spoilers Ahead
Back in 2009 the first stand-alone Wolverine movie (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) was released to the masses. Prior to seeing any movies I like to look at the principal cast involved. I saw that Ryan Reynolds would be playing “the Merc with the Mouth” known as Deadpool. I could not have been happier. In my mind, that was perfect casting. I couldn’t wait to see what they did with the character. Then the movie came out, and they sewed his mouth shut, and gave him all these odd powers. Seriously, what the fuck?
Last Friday, a little movie called Star Wars: The Force Awakens opened in theaters everywhere. To say “it was a hit” is an understatement. Love it or hate it, it is the topic of many conversations lately.
Now that the dust has settled and after two viewings, the initial excitement is out of the way and I have had some time to think about the movie. I have a lot of thoughts about the movie and some ideas for where the franchise can go from her ebut before I get into the review (with plenty of spoilers)…
WARNING: CONTAINS MASSIVE SPOILERS
This season of The Walking Dead is setting up to be an epic one. The show is in its sixth season, which is about the time most shows start winding down and come to an end. History has shown that if a show goes past season 6, it tends to over stay its welcome (right, Dexter?)
But not TWD. They show no signs of slowing down anytime soon and are still churning out content that keeps fans on the edge of their seat. The survivors have been in the “quiet” settlement of Alexandrea for a little while now and there is still plenty of drama to go around. In episode 2 of this season in what I thought was going to be a slow boring episode, the town is brutally attacked by the mysterious “Wolves” and many Alexandrians perished. For me, it was a top 5 episode that left me asking, “Where will they go from here?”
Then this Sunday’s episode happened…
When someone thinks of a handicap, they immediately picture someone in a wheel chair (or golf). There are many ways a person can be handicapped. Perhaps they have lost the use of their legs, or they are missing an arm. Basically when the use of any of your basic human functions is hindered, you have a handicap. The ones I listed above are more serious than the lame handicap that was bestowed on me at birth: I was born with a cataract in my right eye. While most people can have this corrected by wearing a contact the first few years of their life, my parents opted to try for a surgery that did not correct mine.Continue reading
I started listening to podcasts a few years ago. Working at a desk job, I was allowed to listen to headphones while I completed the menial tasks I was assigned for the day (welcome to life working in a cubicle). Working in a cube has its ups and downs, and being allowed to drown out the sounds of multiple keyboards clicking and talks of “Synergy” and “sales” is certainly the biggest benefit.Continue reading
My name is Q. Welcome to my basement.
What is Q’s Basement?
Q’s Basement is a blog by me, Q (duh). I named this blog “Q’s Basement” for a number of reasons. One, every single time I tried to name it something, that name was taken (naming things such as band names, blogs, podcasts, are a bitch). Two, this is where the podcasts are recorded. Of course, I would love to have a professional studio with all the amazing high tech equipment, but I gotta make do with what I have. And three, the main reason I named it “Q’s Basement” is because I realized growing up I had a lot of fond memories in my basement: band practices, hanging out with friends, sneaking alcohol down there so my parents wouldn’t realize I was drinking (sorry mom and dad). There were a lot of good times in my basement, and many of my friends have fond memories that took place in my basement.
Who am I?
I’m Q (duh, again). If I could describe myself in one sentence: I love to entertain people. I play music, I love movies, and I love telling stories. This website is basically a compilation of my random thoughts, stories, podcasts, etc. I am not a professional writter, I am just someone who loves telling stories. Everything you find on this blog is MY OPINION, and should be treated as such. This blog is strictly for entertainment purposes. I hope you enjoy all this material as much as I enjoyed creating it!
What you can find here…
I will try to update this site as much as possible. Right now, it consists of the blog and the Beyond the Cape podcast. I am hoping to have more podcasts and even upload videos. If you are looking for a site to host any material you have, let me know! I am always looking for more material to post.
Questions? Comments? Feel free to email me or add a comment in the comments section. I am always looking for feedback (be gentle). Take a look around, and have fun!
