Book Review: Think. Do. Say.: How to seize attention and build trust in a busy, busy world

Misery Hates Company

It’s interesting how you can go through life for so long thinking about not only acting, but being a particular way because you think that it’s helpful to others – but really, you’re just being an ignorant knob and you should have given your head a shake a long time ago. Continue reading

Here is the list of the movies that we shall be viewing:

  1. Jaws
  2. Some Like it Hot
  3. The Raid 2
  4. Out of Sight
  5. Life Itself
  6. Whiplash
  7. Empire Records
  8. Chronicle
  9. The Babadook
  10. The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension
  11. Snowpiercer



The lineup is quite awesome this year. I have seen a few of these – but they are also movies that I am gladly going to watch again. What do you think?

MM9 – 24 Hour Movie Marathon – 2014

MM9

Welcome to the 9th 24 Hour Movie Marathon! This proud tradition has survived (some may say “persisted”) for some time now, and it is an annual event that I look forward to quite enthusiastically. A little more than a year has passed since the last movie marathon, and it appears that we have another strong lineup this year.
