Happy Valentine’s Day!!! Here’s Ryan Gosling story & pics



She’s at a job interview right now. Then she should be on her way back to me.

It’s the longest we spent apart since we met. Just one night.

I got so used to her. To us. That now is odd for her not to be around. And I overslept. By a lot.

Bisho took her place in bed. Hey. I love my cat. But I prefer her by a lot.

I slept all over the place. And woke up several times in the morning. Just to be like… wait… have I been dreaming for the past week or so?!

Nah. My room is extremely clean.

I don’t even remember what it used to be like. Well… it was very dirty. But I ignored the fuck out of it.

Sunday was great.

Not only is my blog infested with cheesiness. Now my Instagram story line is too. First video story…

Star Wars Comic Review (BLW Contributor)

Star Wars

Title Star Wars #27

Story by Jason Aaron

Art by Salvador Larroca, Edgar Delgado

Publisher: Marvel Comics

Release Date: 1/25/17

Coming off of the last issue we knew that this next book will revolve around Yoda solely. I for one was excited as this allowed for Yoda to go on an exciting solo journey seldom seen. I was glad that my trust in this saga seems to be warranted for the moment. I had to review this as Star Wars VIII announced the title of The Last Jedi raising the hype level.

In the latest saga in the Star Wars comics, Obi-Wan details a flashback of Yoda is drawn to a signal in a far off planet inhabited mostly by children. These children gain their life source from the mountains giving off a force like quality. Yoda first encounters the Muckwhackers a group of child warriors who details the events that happened upon the planet. The world was at peace living off the planet until warring factions got power hungry and claimed mountains destroying them in the process. The Muckwhackers were on the losing side and live in exile off the power of a single piece of the mountain hunted by the Rockhawkers, more child warriors. Yoda goes off to investigate the stones and try to broker a truce. However, things quickly go bad for him as he is captured and told to go into the mountains alone. 

There was only an outline of a story here as Aaron pulls us in without going into depth only offering slight hints leading the reader to fill in the blanks. This will be resolved as the next issue will most likely plunge into background information as Yoda makes his way up the mountain.  I would also like to see more about Obi-Wan in the next arc although a solo Yoda adventure seems to be good so far. 

The art was mostly good despite a few glitches here and there. The backdrop was gorgeous with the perfect combination of penciling and coloring by Larroca and Delgado especially in the mountains. There was much detail put into the supporting characters allowing the feel of a dystopian planet.  However, the cohesion between Larroca and Delgado stopped in the background as I personally thought Yoda could’ve been drawn better. Also, paneling was also quite standard despite good art within the borders. 

While this issue might have fallen short (get it Yoda) there is still promise that the next few issues will pick up both from the writing side and the art aspect. Yoda is in a vulnerable state and will have to do some soul searching in the next issue on his way to the Heart of the Mountain. 
Rating: 7.5/10

RIP Carrie Fisher (BLW Contributor)

The Vintage Toy Advertiser

So sad to hear that Carrie just passed away. I know she did plenty of other great work but she’ll always remain in my heart for her role as Princess Leia. Whenever I saw her interviewed on TV she was always funny and seemed a likeable person. My thoughts go out to her family and loved ones.

Movies I should’ve watched sooner: Blade Runner


Reffing Movies

Should I have watched Blade Runner sooner?


As a fan of 80s Sci-Fi, why has it taken so long to finally watch?

There has never been an opportunity before now to watch it. It was much like putting the bins out in a way. You know it needs to be done, you just sometimes can’t find the motivation to get up and drag it to the side of the road.

So, does that mean I enjoyed Blade Runner or did I consider it a chore?

I’ve always had a soft spot for dystopian future movies made during the 80s so this was always going to attract my interest once I start watching it. The set design is both typical and beautiful and the story is simple enough to follow.

If this were a contest, how would Blade Runner score?

The story is sharp, the characters have real definition and…

Inside the Agora – What is Valuable? Matthew 6:19-21


Inside the Agora – The Book of Job


April looks promising – Work, Money & Brad Pitt by Matthew Suarez

in n out


I feel like a senior in college the night before he has to turn in his last thesis. Except this time I’m not turning in 50+ pages of random liberal crap like I used to spout for my Resolution of Conflicts minor… I wished I saved my senior theses, I bet they were horrendous. I wrote two different 50 page, one 30 page and one shared 50 page with a team of four, fuck working in teams (it was about saving the whales). 

April looks promising. There is a lot of good stuff that will be happening (I hope and I am sorta nervous for all of it). I haven’t seen this much work laying on my desktop in a while. It’s a bit of a clusterfuck, but I’m getting it done one by one. It will be a very busy month. I have a lot of ideas for larger articles and I plan to do major changes to Tijuana Adventure. 

March was difficult, but March is also almost over. I spent most of it being broke and stressed while working and looking for a job. It wasn’t until this last Tuesday that I finally got a decent paycheck. I paid a little debt that I had, enjoyed myself, and did some work. Unfortunately, the work I did was rejected and the other research I was doing prove to be more difficult than I first though (and I have more difficult research to do this week).

I tried working on Tuesday, but on my way to San Diego all I could think of was that I finally had some money. And once I deposited my check to the bank and had some cash, all I could think of is that I could finally eat out and enjoy myself. 

On Wednesday, I spent my morning doing some fruitless research and decided to go out. Found out that the awesome artist Teak (who happens to be my neighbor) painted me in his mural. His mural is about immigrants in Tijuana, Teak himself being one (and of course, myself)

Thursday I worked on more fruitless research, that I ended up deciding switching my focus to the events from Wednesday, the Dinner in The Sky shit. Also started collecting info and pictures for a food review of a vegan place.

Friday I sent what I had work on so far on the week, sadly, this was my aforementioned rejected article. That afternoon I got more vegan food and went to Plaza Fiesta to get an interview for a re-write (more of this in upcoming weeks). I got day drunk thanks to a Quadruple Belgian beer (and others) but got great material and pictures for more work.
Saturday the same, more work. I’m glad there wasn’t soccer matches on the Mexican league this weekend, otherwise I would have done nothing but watch soccer. I went to a different nerdy/awesome restaurant to again, collect pictures and information for yet more work! I think this is the post that I have typed the word “work” the most. Then I did more nerdy stuff by going to the Plaza Friki to play Street Fighter V with my friend Ohh Wow (I kicked his ass). Got more interview material and pictures at night for more and more work I’ll be doing this week… 

And guess what I did on Sunday?! I worked! I transcribed, wrote, edited, restructured and organized more WORK! Now I wished all this worked paid, but I guess that is where I’m barely getting at. Working and suffering to build a career (that hopefully is nothing like House of Cards). Tired from all the work, I napped on the early afternoon and woke up near midnight. Realizing it was Monday already and knowing that I have a lot of work to do on the week, I wrote the Monday blog post before dawn just to get it out of the way.

Brad Pitt

On my years chasing celebrities, I had a top three celebrities that people always asked for that I almost never saw. Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Johnny Depp. I never saw Depp, but I did catch Pitt and Clooney for a very brief moment each. Seriously, all I got were like 10 seconds. These people are busy. So I shouldn’t be complaining about how busy I am. I still have time to go to a nerdy plaza to play videogames… 

feb 5 2011
I saw Pitt on February 5, 2011, that same day I also saw… Paris Hilton. And yes, if you are wondering, I did see Angelina Jolie (stories later).

Pitt arrived on Terminal 2, so I’m guessing he was coming from Air France. There were dozens of paparazzi waiting, but he snuck by some “not so secret” doors and only a few caught him (I had a great position). Anyway, here are the pics of the only time I saw Pitt.

And now that I am done with my blog… I can go to bed (it’s 2:57 now) so I can wake up and do more work. I’m kinda hungry, but I’m sure that eating at this hour is not a good idea. Napping for four hours during the afternoon is also not a good idea, but I guess this is the life of a freelance.
