That Time I Finally Met Stephen Amell!

  

A few weeks ago I made my way to Dallas, Texas for Dallas Comic Con Fan Days 2015 to meet Stephen Amell aka Oliver Queen/The Arrow from CW's hit show, Arrow. It took a lot of work to get to the point of finally meeting him as he'd canceled two conventions prior due to work and press stuff. Take a look at my vlog to hear all about my experience meeting that wonderful man. It was Sinceriously amazing!

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies Movie Review Vlog!

    

Hey everyone!
First off, I want to apologize for not posting the past couple of months of 2014. At the end of October I got into a horrible car accident on the interstate and my car was totaled. You can imagine, after getting into a wreck like that, dealing with PTSD, and having to find the money to afford a new car and Christmas presents...that I was super stressed out these past months. Now that it is a new year and my financial situation is stable again I can finally start posting again. 

Though I was unable to post on here the past couple months, I was able to film a couple of vlogs after my wreck and my most recent vlog where I talk about the final movie in The Hobbit Trilogy, The Battle of the Five Armies. Go ahead and watch it to see what I thought about the film. Please comment on this video with what you all thought about the final movie.

Book Review: The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Other Stories by Washington Irving + Halloween Book Giveaway!

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Other Stories
by Washington Irving
Release Date: September 30th, 2014

SUMMARY:

Perhaps the marker of a true mythos is when the stories themselves overshadow their creator. Originally published under a pseudonym as The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent., THE LEGEND OF SLEEPY HOLLOW AND OTHER STORIES (A Penguin Classics Original) gave America its own haunted mythology. This new collection of larger-than-life tales contains Washington Irving’s best-known literary inventions—Ichabod Crane, the Headless Horseman, and Rip Van Winkle—that continue to capture our imaginations today, and features an introduction and notes by Elizabeth L. Bradley, author of Knickerbocker: The Myth Behind New York and literary consultant to Historic Hudson Valley, the caretakers of Irving’s Tarrytown, New York home.

The setting of “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” is renowned for the supernaturalism that pervades the imaginations of its inhabitants and visitors. The most infamous specter in the Hollow is the Headless Horseman, said to be the ghost of a Hessian trooper who had his head shot off by a stray cannonball during the American Revolutionary War, and who “rides forth to the scene of battle in nightly quest of his head.” The “Legend” relates the tale of Ichabod Crane, a superstitious schoolmaster from Connecticut, who competes with townsman Abraham Van Brunt for the hand of 18-year-old Katrina Van Tassel, the daughter and sole child of a wealthy farmer, Baltus Van Tassel. Crane sees marriage to Katrina as a means of procuring Van Tassel’s extravagant wealth. Bones, the local hero, vies with Ichabod for Katrina's hand, playing a series of pranks on the jittery schoolmaster, and the fate of Sleepy Hollow's fortune weighs in the balance for some time. The tension among the three is soon brought to a head.

 

REVIEW:

Recently, I was sent a copy of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Other Stories to review. This book is a compilation of several incredible short stories by Washington Irving. I must say, I found The Legend of Sleepy Hollow to be extremely intriguing and right up my alley as to what I am always looking for in a good read. I felt really drawn to the stories in this book and found it difficult to put down. Irving's writing style is very interesting and I can honestly say I have never read anything quite like his work. I would definitely recommend this book to other readers and especially those who would love to read the whole original story of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. If you are expecting the story to be like the show, then think again because I can assure you, it is quite different. The the original story I enjoy on its own and that is the way I enjoy the show. I will definitely read this entire book of Irving's work again in the near future.
