"Wet Dream Of The Week" Ty Simpkins - It seems like it was just yesterday that Ty was instrumental in scaring the bejeezus out of people in "Insidious", but as he's growing older, with roles in "Iron Man 3" and "Jurassic World", this charismatic young actor shows that he's not going anywhere for some time to come.
I had to see a client in Torquay so the night before I arranged to meet my cousin who lives there for lunch. I was an amazing day so we arranged to meet at the Beefeater which is on the front in Torquay overlooking the sea and has a good outside eating area.
So we order food, drinks and a couple tables across is this guy on his own. His order turned up within about 5 minutes, he noticed some condiment missing and being too late to get the waiters attention went in to get it himselfÖ. big mistake. As soon as he was inside about 20 seagulls descended on his table and cleared his plate within seconds lol, it really was a funny scene. The guy came out and looked stunned, there were still a couple seagulls around his table picking up the scraps. He went back inside and never came out again but I went to the loo for a pee a bit later and obviously the restaurant had replaced his meal but he decided to eat it inside. :)
On a different subject thereís a block of apartments being built just down from the Beefeater. Iíve got to win the big lottery because I so want one. Mike posted pics of Scotland so hereís pics of Torquay old and new. Everybody come to UK. :)
This the apartment complex. There's still a penthouse available @ £950k, I want it. :)
Damn, I've had an exhausting day. -- Mike84, 20:16:07 07/22/14 Tue
I walked about a ten mile trek around the Great Glen Lake this afternoon.
Beautiful scenery. It's been on my mind to do it since I moved here in December. But it's one hell of a walk. Plus I've been on the mend, healing from having a cyst removed, which took months to fully heal and kept getting re-infected.
So anyway, today I did it. I think I'll sleep like a lion tonight. xD
I was planning to take some snaps while I was out there, but I forgot my phone. Anyway, I'll post some stock photos below, in case anyone wants to see them.
Tuesday quickie before bedz. -- Johnny, 17:15:36 07/22/14 Tue
Back to old school, I was 6 when this came out. Talking about being 6 we're sleeping in the gazebo in the garden tonite. :) It's cool because it's got 3 dropdown walls and a doorway so basically it's a big tent in that form. Gotta make up some good ghost and scarey stories along with laptop porn which wasn't available when I was 6. :)
This is basically one of the major purposes I made my blog for, I easy place for me to keep track of the stories I really really liked.
So I wanted to post a link and say if you're ever looking for a story to read check back there. I'll likely keep updating it, I don't know. Currently I'm going through my list from pocket and deleting the stories I've finished/won't read. And then adding the really good ones to the blog. *shrugs* Check it out.
I'm glad they got a professionally made video and all. Sounds like they altered the music just enough to make it their own too. The harder drums definitely add more emphasis. Cute video, GREAT message, and this just from a kid who decided to speak out about what he was going through in school. This really made me smile. I really hope they succeed. They've got some serious heart. ((Hugz))
So if you watch this week's 3M movie...remember, this is the better way to go. How many ways can I say it? Take a negative situation...and use it to make a positive change. ::Nods::
This week's 3M comes with the darkest of consequences...
While there is a great deal of this movie that appears to be promoting violence, it's actually a strong message against it. It's about the heft of the consequences that come after that one moment of horror...and how there's no taking it back once it's done.
So, in this story, a young high school boy id being bullied and relentlessly picked on by his classmates...until one day he decides that he has enough. One morning, he walks into his school armed to teeth and sets out to make Columbine look like a picnic in comparison. But before he's arrested, he says he want to tell his story to 'one' person, and one person only...while he awaits the death penalty for what he's done.
Enter an outspoken media personality who accepts the call. Lax Morales ('Lacks Morals'...I get it. :P) played by Norman Reedus, has a few dark secrets of his own from the past, and is sent to sit down with him and find out exactly what went wrong, and what story it is this troubled teen has to tell.
What starts off as a tense and unfriendly discussion between the two, evolves over time into something where both Lax and Herman are forced to see the darkest parts of themselves and eventually deal with them.
So, definitely not a 'sunshine' movie, by any means. But one that I enjoyed, as it really tries to make you understand the tragedy from all angles. So check it out. Enjoy.
Sunday Chill Time -- Johnny, 03:33:50 07/20/14 Sun
I posted this tv movie two or three years ago, that was then, this is a better copy. Itís a Boy George part bio, the time when he was starting out. Itís quite a good depiction of the 80ís New Romantic period in London when straight boys wanted to be gay for the night and pretended to be gay to get into the best clubs. I think itís good for a tv movie with a pretty cool soundtrack of the time even though itís just snippets of songs. Itís cool how the Brit public still have a ton of affection for Boy George and George Michael. Boy George and his drug habit then and later going to nick for it and chaining a rent boy to his radiator. George Michael for his drug habit, cottaging, cruising Hampstead Heath late at night etc. Bad boys. :)
Embedding is disabled so this is a direct link to Youtube, itís on a loop.
It's Wedding Day -- Johnny, 03:28:38 07/19/14 Sat
Not mine, friends. :) The weather forecast is crap but that doesn't mean it will happen, it better not I don't want my hair ruined. :) A song for happy couple Have an amazing life together. xx
ROFL 'Would you vote for a heterosexual president? -- Mike84, 16:19:25 07/18/14 Fri
Well... they usually say ignorance begets bigotry. These people are clearly clueless about sexuality. I found most of this quite funny, but one guy needs locking up,for good, he's insane.
"Man's World, Woman's Touch"!!! This week, Jimmy wants a male/female duo! The yin and the yang! Both Chromosones! ONE guy! ONE Girl! So bands don't count this time around! Give us at least one! No more than FOUR! Any kind of music, any genre, from any era! Easy enough, right? Let's see! Happy hunting, Shackers!
(Please put all music video selections in the 'reply' section below and not on the main board! It helps to prevent slow down)
Because we haven't done one in a long time! :P This time, the rules are simple! So I want THREE from each of you!
TWO truths! And ONE lie!!! That's what I want! That means that I want you to give us all three offerings! Two of them are TRUE statements about yourself, and one is a false statement! And we guess which one is the falsehood! Put them in the replies below! I'll play as well in order to offer an example! Three offerings (which means NINE true/false statements about yourself)...
But...you know...in a 'manly' way. You know? I mean...I mean, right?
::Turns on more LIGHTS in this damn house::
Hey, Mike!!! I remember you posting about how creepy and freaky that movie "The Conjuring" was on the board a few months ago! (And agreed! That movie was disturbing!) Well, remember that extremely creepy doll thing that was in the beginning of the movie? Well, there's a PREQUEL coming out just about that doll now! ::Shivers::
Comsie likes scary! :)
It doesn't say if Ed and Lorraine Warren are in it. They should be (kinda). Then this would be a prequel to "The Conjuring", which would be a prequel to "Amityville".(Know your 'real life' paranormal studies, kids!) Still, this might be just as creepy if not more so...
By the way..."Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes" is SOOOOOOOOO GOOD!!!!!!!! Omigod! That might actually be one of my favorites for this whole Summer! And after "Captain America: Winter Soldier", "X-Men: Days Of Future Past", and "Edge Of Tomorrow"...that's saying a LOT! :O
I've been doing a little 'behind the scenes' maintenance over the past few weeks on the Comicality Kindle Section, concerning a few hiccups here and there, but mostly it's me just updating the ebook covers. Unfortunately, any changes whatsoever to an ebook means that I have to re-publish, which can take between 12 and 24 hours. So if you guys are looking to grab an ebook, and you don't see it on Amazon.com, check back the following day and it should pop back up. Cool?
Just recently, I added a new cover to "Just What I Ordered", because the last one was terrible and I was still learning how to do stuff back then. :P Not that I'm a PRO at it now, but I'm better than I was. So there!
They are gone :'( -- TurtleBoy, 07:32:56 07/17/14 Thu
My Grandmother and Uncle were here visiting from England, but they left for home yesterday... *sniffle* Three weeks went by soooooo fast. It's just not fair.
Sighhh....ended up having to go back into work tonight because the one who was supposed to work that shift is temporarily...er um...'arrested'. ::Snickers:: Nothing major, but yeah...he's being detained at the moment. (Keep screwing around with the law and you *WILL* get caught, kiddies! Every time! Hehehe, Murphy's Law is always just around the corner. So when it grabs a hold of ya, you'd better hope it's for something small...)
Anyway, I have Thursday OFF! Completely off! And my friends Nathan and Roderick also have the day off, and we've got a date with the "Planet Of The Apes"! (Hey, that rhymes! Take THAT, Eminem!)
So, yes! Freedom! I'm going to enjoy the next 24 hours! In fact, this is me, Nathan, and Roderick, tomorrow! All day! Just the three of us! Seriously! I'm going to start practicing my topless march as soon as I wake up tomorrow! Er...today!
That's what I'll be doing from sun up to sundown. Having a big ol' gay day away! :P
For right now though, I'm gonna make something unhealthy toeat, and then I believe I owe you guys a "Billy" chapter! So I'll seezya soon!
Hmmm I am sickened by these law enforcement officers. Sickened. These kind of tactics prey on the vulnerable in High Schools across the country. I am disgusted, this kind of thing is really hard to watch because you know it happens. And they target kids. Urg it's the definition of entrapment and yet you can't prove it.
These are kids being kids. And to target an autistic child too? Fuck you officers. Listen, I'm not the kind of person who usually buys into this kind of thing but the report is hard to ignore. I would be interested in hearing the Police's side defending their actions and that may even be in the documentary later on, I'm currently only ten minutes in. I just knew I had to share this.
This is Justice in America. God bless these American heroes!
How cool would this be? -- Mike84, 05:24:33 07/16/14 Wed
I was originally going to post this in reply to Johhny, in Com's post about sitting through long movies in the cinema, but I thought it'd be better off being in a new thread.
Imagine meeting your other friends online in a virtual movie theatre?
Bear in mind, that these headsets are said to be fully immersive. That you feel like you're really there (something you can't tell just by watching on YouTube).
This should be great once it's out there for everyone to use.
Also the other applications they could use this on... Sporting events like the World Cup, a UFC match, a music concert? A Museum? Whatever your thing is.
Woohoo -- Johnny, 02:29:24 07/16/14 Wed
Found out 30 mins ago I've clinched my biggest deal to date workwise, just the signing to do later today. OK it's not massive bigtime but it's made my company happy and it's made me happy. :)
Finished True Detective -- Jake, 02:01:44 07/16/14 Wed
Best acting I've seen in a long time, the pure emotion in some of those scenes in the final episode was amazing. (vagueness) Did Woody Harrelson or Matthew Mcconaughey win any awards for their performance because they totally should have.
I loved Rust's monologues.
"I think consciousness was a tragic misstep in evolution. We became to self aware. We are creatures that should not exist by natural law. We are things that label under the illusion of having a self. This excretion of sensory experience and feeling. Programmed with total assurance that we are each somebody, when really everybody is nobody. I think the honorable thing for our species to do is to deny our programming. Stop reproducing. One last midnight. Walk hand and hand into the sunset brothers and sisters opting out of a raw deal."
Marty: "So what's the point in getting out of the bed in the morning?"
"I tell myself that I bare witness. But the reality is that its my programming. That and I lack the constitution for suicide."
Marty: "And I picked today to get to know you."
He's dark, he's introspective, he thinks to much. What a great character. Regardless of how nutty he sounds, it makes for good listening. Great acting, and phenomenal story telling. You can't wait to hear what piece of dark philosophy he will spout out next.
His life trap speech is pretty good to. He's a very dark guy. Of course I think it comes with the job.
I can't wait for next season and to see where it goes. Honestly it wrapped itself up pretty well, but there is still more to do. Always like when shows go like that.
Another tid bit of wisdom: "It was all a dream. A dream that you had inside a locked room. A dream about being a person."
So to those who have scene it, what do you think is next? For those who haven't, GO WATCH IT NOW!
Anyway, mostly spoiler free video with Rust's opinion on preachers:
So (Just because we had some free tickets, and already made plans for later to see "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes")...a friend and I saw "Transformers: Age Of Extinction"....
THAT damn movie...would NOT end! It refused to end! I could have gotten a FULL night's sleep in the middle of that movie, woken up, and it STILL would have been playing! Christ...
I mean, special effects were cool and stuff, but...wow. There was seriously a point where I was SO exhausted from mindless fighting and explosions and robot weirdness, that I was thinking, "Thank GOD!!! At least this is the END of this long ass movie!!!" But you know what? It WASN'T the end!!! They got away from a spaceship and some cyber-wolf thingies...and then they went to CHINA!!! And I still had over an **HOUR** of fucking movie left!!!!
I don't want to see another damn explosion for at LEAST a week. Maybe two weeks.
And...blow up Chicago ONCE? Shame on us! Blow up Chicago TWICE? And we shoot back! :P
This looks cool -- Johnny, 11:05:25 07/15/14 Tue
If you wanna learn Chinese try this guy he seems good fun. there's only 10 lessons on Youtube but go to his website and there are 17 via ITunes. I dunno why there's a gap but I heard him on the radio earlier doing promo so I guess it's gonna get going again. It's only 10 min approx lessons so I think I will give it a go, oh yeh he's from Chicago. If you get a thingy up on his website telling you to log in just close it and you get to his site anyhow. http://www.chinesewithmike.com/
Considering how big the "Harry Potter" movies were and how long hey ran, I imagine Daniel Radcliffe would have a tough time breaking away from the title. But he seems to be doing fine, which I think is awesome. It's god to see him branch out and do different things. Especially so...'dark'.
I think Emma might have the rest of the cast beat so far in breaking typecast rules, hehehe! But Daniel's not far behind. (Hey! American accent! Nice!)
It's TUESDAY! And this week should be a bit of a challenge... -- PeteIM (), 00:56:24 07/15/14 Tue
Our theme this week is Then and Now. We all know of singers or bands who have been around for a long time. This week's theme is to post a song by an act as it was released, and post the same song as it's played by the same act today. For instance, my first pick is The Cascades and Rhythm of the Rain. It was originally released in November of 1962. (I was 15 at the time.) I have that version posted as THEN. The NOW version was recorded in 2006.
I'm not sure if this will be easy or hard, so let's start with just one submission Tuesday and Wednesday, and then we can finish up on Thursday with up to four.
As always, please put all music video selections in the 'reply' section below and not on the main board! It helps to prevent slow down.

Well I'm all caught up on Billy Chase... (spoilers - sorta) -- Michael, 13:40:20 07/14/14 Mon
I feel a bit like Johnny Five lol - speed reader I am not.. usually that is - but Billy's adventures have certainly held my attention for the last week or so. Its bittersweet to have to wait for the next installment - I've been spoiled :)
While everyone may not feel the same I felt like I wanted to share my thoughts and opinions a lil - just a lil..
I find it easy to invest in Billy's character - his desire to put others first and his open hearted kindness where his friends are concerned is easy to fall in love with. His mistakes and occasional bouts of selfishness - especially during that more dark period he goes through is difficult to read sometimes. Maybe its the journal format and also Com's writing style but when he falls short of my expectations or he does something foolish - I wanna yell at him and I cringe like crazy when his life takes a turn for the worse. Either way he makes for a very compelling and believable lead character as far as my thoughts are concerned.
My second favourite character is Brandon - his soul mate as far I'm concerned. Something about how hes described in the story paints a very vivid image in my mind. I love how he lights up Billy's life and how in turn Billy becomes somewhat of a poet at times while trying to express those complex emotions that Brandon stirs inside him. It almost makes me jealous...
Anyway having such large portions of the story where they are estranged from one another while Billy is off doing god knows what is horrible for me to be quite honest. If I were allowed to make any criticism at all its that those two dont get enough happy time together. I blame Com for making their more positive exchanges so touching and gooey sometimes that I just keep wanting more lol.
There are so many other vividly realised characters aswell such as Jimmy, Bobby, Trace and so many more that its hard to believe I've only been reading about them all for a short time.
Its not always smooth sailing following Billy's highs and lows but I'm hooked and I love it !
Thanks again Com for being awesome and dont stop writing !
Oh and if you ever kill off Brandon - well be warned fella I'll be one angry Brit ;p
This week's 3M let's all the giggles out of the closet!
"Date And Switch"
I thought this comedy was a lot of fun, so I figured I'd share. Because sharing is caring and...er...stuff.
Two high school seniors who have spent their whole lives growing up together have decided to make a pact to have sex before prom. (A la "American Pie") However, there's just one glitch. One of them has just now decided to tell his best friend in the world...that he's gay.
So, to keep this short, this movie is ultimately about lasting friendship and dismissing some gay stereotypes as one friend awkwardly struggles with this new revelation and tries to help his best bud out anyway that he can. I do wish Zach Cregger was in it a bit more to see how that relationship panned out, but all in all it's got a lot of laughs in it, good message...it's good for a Saturday afternoon. :P
True Detective is a good show! -- Jake, 18:48:33 07/13/14 Sun
Started watching it over the weekend, very enjoyable. And I went to listen to some of the soundtrack and just had to laugh that I was listening to this. Cracked me up. Just like 'I am now listening to this, what has my life come to?'
It's catchy though.
But let's leave with something a little more my style:
