Posts in "Off Topic"

Sometimes I get sick of teaching people how to squat correctly or convincing people that not benching 3x per week won’t start the Apocalypse. Sometimes I just want to talk about Beast Wars, food, or a recent movie I saw. This section is what I do so that I don’t have to assume a fake identity and start trolling random message boards.

Day 5: The Library, The Lesser Quarter, The Dinner

Day 5: The Library, The Church, The Dinner Another quiet night, followed by a leisurely morning with coffee from our little machine, eggs from the local market, and the most insane granola ever. Today the Somersets and Gentilewis’ decided to divide and conquer. Dean and Lindsay headed to Old Town Square and the Torture Museum,… Read more

Day 4: Prague Castle

Day 4: Prague Castle! After a solid 10 hours of sleep, we had a more successful morning with the coffeemaker in the apartment, and all of the Gentilcores and Somersets sat in the kitchen quietly, catching up on emails and filling up on caffeine and Czech Granola (which is delicious, by the way!) The Somersets,… Read more

Day 3: Rain, Rain!

Day 3: Rain Rain! Today started off with a coffee machine mishap. Dean and I thought it would be smart to just use the coffee maker in the apartment, instead of running out for a little coffee in the morning.

Day 2 After an amazing 12 hours of sleep, I was bright eyed and bushy tailed! I found the nearest open coffee shop, grabbed myself one, and brought one home for Dean.

Movie Review: The Martian

Screw the conventional, formulaic approach to writing movie reviews. You know those snazzy, buzzword filled headlines a lot of studios use from various magazine or newspaper reviewers to help promote their movie? Examples include: “4 Stars” “Damon shines!” “Best space drama since Apollo 13.” Those are all fine and dandy, if not woefully lame. Here’s… Read more

Movie Review: Sicario

Three words: Sicario is sick. And I don’t mean sick as in bad. I mean sick as in “holy shit balls this movie is fucking amazing.” For those who need a minor brush up on their Spanish, the word ‘sicario’ can be translated to mean “hit man,” which I knew because 1) I remember all… Read more

Movie Review: Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation

Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation wastes little time jumping straight into the action. Well, there’s also jumping, and running, and a sniper roll tossed in for good measure. All of which culminates with Tom Cruise’s character, IMF agent, Ethan Hunt, grabbing onto the side of an airplane as it takes off with a payload of nerve gas… Read more
