  • Dystopian Film

    Somehow I find pure joy in watching two men or women display their superior ass kicking skills on one another. So much so that I endure movies with painfully corny and cliché story lines, all to watch Keanu Reeves in a well tailored suit show off his impressive mixed martial art abilities and military grade handling of assault rifles (John Wick). What the movie lacks in its plot more than graciously substitutes in for its incredibly stylish persona of John Wick, as well as a more than healthy heaping of high intensity, gut wrenching violence. On the other side of this twisted coin films such as Blue is the Warmest Color completely mesmerizes me with its incredibly raw and uncensored story telling, which most foreign films do exceptionally well. A miraculous blend of the arts, love,…

    something seems right doesn’t mean it is. A technical genius is expected to turn up to an interview in a suit, but real technical geniuses turn up looking like overworked hobos or World Of Warcraft veteran players. Is turning up in a $2000 suit going to get you a management job? Is turning up in a suit going to help you get a job as a wildlife vet? There are no right or wrong answers to these questions, but have you considered going against your intuitive answers? What about your attitude? The…

  • Difference Between The Matrix And Nozick's

    The Matrix, on the other hand, is more than just a thought experiment. It is a narrative that is judged aesthetically, and as such its success requires that its creators produce something that will captivate and engage an audience. Carroll has asserted that, narratives, far from being complete, have gaps which need to be filled by the audience. That is, creators of narratives do not spell-out every detail of the narrative, instead, narratives rely on the elicitation of moral emotions from an…

  • Isaac C. Parker: The Legend Of The Hanging Judge

    Legend of the “Hanging Judge” While in search of a piece of Arkansas history I came across a familiar name when research brought me to Judge Isaac Parker.

She had gone to a doctor’s appointment that morning for a routine pregnancy checkup. Unfortunately, her blood pressure was higher than normal, and…

  • Walpole In Mary Shelley's The Castle Of Otranto

    Frankenstein has been seen as evidence of her ‘illustrious imaginative powers’ (Bailey 22), Mary Snodgrass suggests that Walpole’s bad night explains the outlandish nature of Otranto. Some of the contemporary commentators on the novel also shared this opinion; one of Walpole’s friends, Gilly Williams, complained about the bizarre ‘wildness’ of the novel in a letter where he wrote ‘[Walpole] says it was a dream, and I fancy one when he had some feverish disposition in him’ (Walpole Letters 332).…

  • Personal Narrative: My Trip To Kenya, Africa

    The lengthy, cramped, and quiet bus ride to Living Hope Day School both excited and terrified me. A never ending stream of “what if” questions rattling my brain caused me think twice about what I was doing there in the first place. I was a stranger to them, someone whom they knew nothing about. I gazed out the window, trying to calm my thoughts when I saw them. An endless sea of purple sweaters, and cheery faces lined the fence at the school. All of my previous doubts washed away when I stepped…
