exodus-gods-and-kingsRidley Scott’s next time period epic is set to release this December. Exodus: Gods and Kings  will be following in Noah’s  footsteps, bringing another action packed, Biblical interpretation to the big screen. In this classic tale that chronicles a people’s journey from slavery, the Dark Knight himself, Christian Bale, will play the Israelite hero Moses; Alien badass Sigourney Weaver will play his adoptive mother Tuya; while Joel Edgerton, whom Star Wars fans may remember as a young Owen Lars, will play Ramesses II (or Rhamses).

Miss Black Beauty Canada 2013

IMG_4456So I’m a year late to be posting this, but this was actually an article I wrote last year for an event that I covered. Unfortunately, the article was never used nor were the photos I took (probably because the person who oversaw the magazine was also a contestant– and did not win, at least that’s my theory). After remembering that I had a blog of my own, I finally decided to publish it myself, albeit a year after the fact. What can I say, I’ve mastered the art of procrastinating. Anyways, I felt that the participants had worked very hard for this one night and certainly believe that the young ladies who took the time to be interviewed at least deserved to have their stories told. So here it is, or was…

Allow me to interject

10455341_725281094201707_6923425577125140304_nSo this video was posted quite a while ago where Joshua Feuerstein attempts to debunk evolution. Though some like-minded individuals might find his argument compelling (he even has that preacher voice), sadly it isn’t. Check out the vid below. Read more…

TheBig BangEnergy cannot be created or destroyed. It can only transform. In addition, the sum total of all matter in the universe today, at least at an atomic level, has remained the same since the universe came into being. Read more…

All That’s Left (a short story)

April 18, 2014 Leave a comment

Homing PigeonThis was a fun little story I wrote some years ago. Though I’ve never been an atheist, I thought it would be interesting to see what it might be like if, in light of more and more aggressive scientific advancements, discoveries, and secular policies, God has ceased to be God and must now live the rest of his life as a normal human. And no, he’s not Morgan Freeman.

Click the image of the homing pigeon on the left to read the story and enjoy!

ford3So here we are again. The next episode. Rob Ford back in the news, though some might say he never left.  As I’ve previously wrote, this man is a made for TV movie waiting to happen.  This week Ford found himself back in the spotlight having some explaining to do after the alleged “Crack Video” was prematurely surfaced by police chief Bill Blair.

My idea for a found footage Spider-Man movie

October 8, 2013 Leave a comment

amazing-spider-manTill now we’ve seen several iterations of Spider-Man on the big screen with varying opinions on them. Ignoring the ridiculously hilarious adaptations from the 1970’s, Sam Raimi’s first and second attempts at the franchise tend to resonate more with its arguably faithful take on the character and minor changes and oversights here and there.

A random creation myth. Just for fun.

September 27, 2013 4 comments

creation-of-the-universeThere was only the Primal Chaos. All possibilities existing simultaneously, fathomless, unyielding, yet beautiful.  After an age, a single thought was randomly generated from the milieu then self-perpetuated itself into a full consciousness.  Calling Itself the Living Name, It was the first to separate from the Chaos using a relentless will that only It possessed. After an eternity of observing and discerning the Primal Chaos from which It came, the Living Name learnt and mastered the Language then used it to impose order, fashioning chaos into harmony.
