A Most Sensible Video

Check out this video if you please.

That’s not my voice in the clip, that’s Ryan’s. At first I thought it might be Batman…

I’ve got an article on Immigration Reform on the site, with more to come. In case you’re wondering, my article went up word-for-word just as I wrote it. Sensible Liberty is set up so you can follow the site or follow an individual author or both. Now that’s my last plug for a while. I’ll slip in another link to the SL site right after this.

KaBlAMMM! Go to Sensible Liberty!

Didn’t post Friday ‘cos I posted twice Thursday night. But Friday is still my weekly date for posting a new article. This Friday, I’m going to tell you about my first months on WordPress. If I post something between now and then, consider it a bonus.

Marvel vs. DC: Are you kidding?

So I am very late with this. I picked up so many new blogs to follow while I did Every Damn Day December (EvDaDaDec), that I am still reading posts from January. There are 2800 posts backed up in my email. Now I don’t want to miss anyone’s so I’m slogging through them whenever I get a chance.

And that’s how I came across this: Continue reading

Why Man of Steel is a Classic, part two

Last Friday, I posted the opening salvo of my war on Man of Steel haters.

{READER: Last Friday, he says? Hasn’t it actually been more than a month?

T OF V: Allow me to explain: Shut the fuck up.}

Again, SPOILERS LIE AHEAD. Continue reading

T of V Preview of Coming Attractions

Happy Friday!

So winter quarter has begun at my school. Also, I have a PS4 now. Therefore, my dear readers get this excuse-laden post for why my blogging has slowed down.

sorry brother

sorry jack shepard

sorry thranduil

sorry neil patrick harris

It’s not an apology, ‘cos I’ll blog when and what I want to. Just thought I’d let you know a little bit of what’s up.

I put up the first part of the three-part Fish Tale earlier today. Mainly, I did this because I had nothing else good enough. Certainly, I planned to put this story up at some point. I think it’s pretty funny, but a lot of the jokes won’t completely come across because it’s an inside story. In other words, the three characters represent actual beings who exist in the world. It still mostly works on its own as a trippy allegory, so there you go. Parts two and three will go up Monday and Tuesday, I think.

Meanwhile, I’ve been working on an epic Man of Steel post that will attempt to answer most people’s criticisms of the movie. I think it’s a classic, but many don’t. So that post is going to persuade you that the movie is awesome, and a classic. But it’s not ready to go yet. I should have it up next Friday. Spoilers will be prevalent, so see the movie first.

man of steel

My film is as awesome as I am handsome.

Meanwhile meanwhile, I’m also working on a second post of random facts about myself. I’d like to open it up for questions. If there’s something you’d like to know about moi, please put it in the comments. Won’t promise an answer, but questions will be appreciated. Nothing’s really off limits, but you can expect sarcasm.

Meanwhile meanwhile meanwhile, I have another award post to do. But it’s not for the big one that I really wanted. Should anyone feel moved to do so, just give me the goddamn blog of the year bullshit already! I probably haven’t earned it, but come on! Would it kill you to toss me one? The fuck do you care?

I hereby award every blog on WordPress the Blog of the Year.

See? It’s simple. Now give me one. I’d just do it myself, but that’s onanistic. (Google it.)

I’ve got three courses going at Clark this quarter. Algebra, Web Design and User Experience Design. I’m thinking of blogging the UX class like I did WordPress last quarter. Does that sound like a good idea? Would people prefer I blog about algebra? If so, weirdo, let me know. Web Design is a tech class, but UX has a lot of content that could be of interest to bloggers who would like to maximize their site for usability. So look for that post-series to start in about a week and a half, I think.

Other than that, I’ll just post what I want when I want. There’s no strict theme on T of V. Does anyone think there should be? Are there things you would like me to do more? Or less? Again, I won’t promise anything. But I will listen.

And notice how sneakily I got up two posts in one day? Pretty slick for a blogger who’s slowing down, huh?
Now, ‘scuse me. It’s not that BC and I don’t love you, but

We’d rather be on the PS4…

Happy Hiddleston New Year

Happy New Year from Treatment of Visions

{Yeah, that drunk Cumberbatch is nowhere to be found today, so Tom Hiddleston stepped in to help me out.}

So just a quick post today to wish everyone a Happy New Year and to thank you. EveryDamnDayDecember was really successful (in my eyes, anyway). I gained a solid amount of new and regular readers and also found hundreds of blogs that I don’t have time to read! Time will be made….

I want to thank those mighty few who also took up the challenge of EvDaDaDec and made it their own:

  1. Myas – A Tragic Lady But No TB
  2. Lindaghill
  3. More At Forty (Five)
  4. Container Chronicles
  5. THE WRITE PLACE.
  6. Chasing Rabbit Holes

Thank you guys! Hope I didn’t leave off anyone…

What’s next for T of V? Funny you should ask. I am no longer going to post every damn day.

shocked taylor swift

What? Noo! Noooo!

I know, I know. But life will spin on, Taylor.

I will post every Friday as usual, and during the week whenever the mood strikes me. I’m sure it will be more than I was doing prior to EvDaDaDec because I’m just in the habit now.

So thanks once again, have a great new year, and I’ll see you Friday….

The Planet that Didn’t Want to be Found, part three

Stone yelled like a maniac and rushed the twins. Taken by surprise, he actually knocked through them before either could pull their laser and got behind his ship ahead of their recovery. He heard the parents vainly remonstrating with their brutish children, but the sound of their stomping tread still came his way. Not wanting to shoot either one of them (and, honestly, he wasn’t sure the firepower he was packing would stop them) Stone decided he had no choice but to attempt a desperate gambit.

Update and Confession

Thought I would post another of my periodic updates and explanations today.

Starting Monday, I think I will have some gos at the Daily Prompt. That’s over at the aptly titled The Daily Post WP blog. We’ve never done those over here at T of V. So I’ll do Daily Prompts for a few days, or less if I can’t stand it.  And that’s not because I have run out of ideas, I assure you. I just want to do something different this week. My posts will be a bit later in the day than I’ve been putting them up, since I now have to wake up and do the writing, but I will still fulfill the terms of EvDaDaDec.

What about Sunday? Well, that’s mainly what I’m here about. Let me come straight to the point: I have a lot of stuff going on this weekend (who doesn’t?), and I don’t think I can get up a good post for tomorrow.

So I’m digging back into the archives and I’m going to repost something that didn’t get viewed much when I first put it up. I feel just as sorry about this as I should.

dr, evil sorry

wrestler sorry

picard sorry

tennant sorry

puppy sorry

I’m even going to pull back in my big gun here.

So check in tomorrow for something that will probably be new to you, and I’ll be back live on Monday with the Daily Prompt! Have a great weekend celebrating the holiday of your choice.

An Unexpected Review

Sunday, I journeyed to the theatre and discovered a little film that I can’t wait to share with all of you. This low-budget, from-the-heart gem of a movie is the reason we all love the cinema. For it never fails to delight us when a movie comes out of nowhere to take on the big-budget bloated titans of the film-world and take its place in our hearts.

Okay, I went to see The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. Continue reading

The Third Nerd Triathlon: The Force Will be with You….Always?

So I’m all set to go run another nerd triathlon. This is a semi-regular feature on T of V where I briefly expound upon a triad of topics dear to the geeky heart.

Problem is, I haven’t seen much new shit lately. Therefore, we’re going to explore kind of an old topic but one which I have no published thoughts on. (For the simple reason, that I didn’t blog before.) Continue reading
