Favorite Movies Of 2020

This was a weird year for movies, as I was only able to see two of these movies in an actual movie theater and with me only spending a collective, like, $50 or $60 on these in total (not including subscriptions to streaming services in which case I spent way more than that, but you…

Be Kind Rewind 2020

Hello, everyone! I know that it has been a very long time since I have written, but 2020 has obviously been...odd, to say the least, and writing hasn't been a top priority for any number of reasons. That said, I do want to get back into it, even if only for a couple quick summary…
