Novels #35: February Wrap Up

Hey Gang!

February wasn’t the greatest month for me. Even though it was the shortest month of the year, it felt like it was the longest. A lot of things happened that wasn’t cool or fair, and really had me in my blues. I managed to push through until March, where things are really looking up. I also managed to finish three books this month, although, I only think two of them were on my TBR for February.

Adventures with Spokhette #29: Hamilton

Hey Gang!

This won’t be the first time I talk about Hamilton, and honestly it probably won’t be the last. I discovered the Soundtrack on Youtube Two years ago and from then on I’ve been hooked. I know all the words to the soundtrack, have listened to the mixtape, and have learned several of the Hamildrops. Lin Manuel Miranda has created a masterpiece that will continue to inspire and invigorate generations long after has left us. He already has his legacy.

The reason I’m talking about it today, would be because I had the amazing opportunity to actually go see it in person. I’ve seen many ballets and shows in Cincinnati. Many of them in the Aronoff. I’ve even had recitals in their hallowed halls, but when I say I have NEVER SEEN A SOLD OUT SHOW like I did tonight would be an understatement. Every seat was filled, and the feeling of actually experiencing Hamilton can not be quantified.

Handheld Mistress #45: Pokemon Sword and Shield

Hey Gang!

Happy Post Pokemon Day! I couldn’t hold onto my excitement about the announcement of Pokemon Sword and Shield, so I filmed a video about it. I tell you a little about what they revealed about the game, the starters, and of course, who I will choose to follow me through the journey.

Adventures with Spokhette #28: Back To Back Concerts

Hey Gang!

It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these kind of posts. A while ago, I had decided that they would do better on my photography site, but now I’m wondering why I thought that would be a good idea. I love music, I listen to all kinds, but I’ve never been one for concerts. I’m not a fan of being surrounded by people that I don’t know and I couldn’t be bothered to spend money on the tickets.

For some reason 2019 has changed this philosophy. I have three scheduled concerts to attend this year, so far, and I’ve already gone to two of them. In January, I went to US Bank Arena to see Panic At The Disco, which was absolutely mind blowing. I spent a pretty penny on tickets, but I was really surprised about how good the seats were! Not that it really mattered, once Brendon took the stage, literally no one sat back down, I stood for practically three hours making myself hoarse, by screaming out the lyrics. I went with my friend Sarah, and we had an absolute blast. I had no idea who the opening acts were, but they were getting down!

Last week, I went to go see Watsky at Bogarts and while the tickets were WAY more affordable, the parking was absolute shit. It was general admission, so I spent a good half of the show trying to get somewhere where I could see the full length of the stage. I wish I had been smarter and stood on the sides, those were the perfect vantage spots. I hadn’t heard of his opening acts, but I thoroughly enjoyed them! I went to this concert by myself because no one had any idea who I was going to go see, but they missed one hell of a concert. I’ve never been somewhere that allowed crowd surfing before, and it was as cool as it sounded.

I’ve really enjoyed the experiences, and I’ve started looking into more concerts in my area. In May, I’m going to see The 1975 and I’m so so excited! I decided that I was going to be more adventurous in 2019, and I’m glad to see myself keeping up with that promise to myself. I’m also just super excited to see how many concerts that I actually enjoy the headliner I can find in my hometown, the best part of these three concerts is that I don’t have to travel far, or worry about parking/hotel costs, which allow me to go to even more than normal because they aren’t a huge financial struggle.

Handheld Mistress #44: Finishing Pokemon Sun

Hey Gang!

Long time no see. I’m about to admit something that only few people know. Are you ready? Come Close. As mush as I enjoy Pokemon and the large space that it takes in my life, and activities. I have not actually completed a Pokemon RPG before. I’ve played everything but Diamond and Pearl, but never to completion. The farthest I had ever gotten was the Elite Four in Fire Red. I never defeated them.

I’d taken a small break from Pokemon Sun over the last year or so, and honestly I couldn’t remember why, it might have been that upgrading from the 3DS to the Switch, was just so great because of the screen that I didn’t want to go back. Since I’ve had plenty of un-prescribed free time, I had been wanting to get back into Pokemon.

I hadn’t realized how close to the end I was when I stopped! About two game play hours later, I had finished it! It was a weird graduation. First it was the last Trial, and then it was defeating the elite Four and then the Pokemon Professor, Kukui, which I had to do twice because I was ill prepared, to facing Tapu Koko! Unfortunately I didn’t catch him, but I did catch Solgaleo, my first caught legendary!

It was the first time I just kind of flowed through the game play, I wasn’t confused about where to go next, and I wasn’t lost, wasting valuable time getting turned around in a forest. I tried to film as much as possible towards the end, if you’re interested in watching. I was kind of surprised it was over. I was expecting a bit more story after Tapu Koko, but once I saw the festival going on for a while, I knew it was coming to an end. I loved the credits, but I wish there had been a bit more story. Since I finished it, all thats left is to catch the pokemon I missed on my journey, grind their levels, battle and trade online. I’m excited to go back through the cities and discovered everything I missed.

Now that it’s finished, I’m not sure if I should get Ultra Sun, or if I should move on to Let’s Go: Pikachu or Eevee. I’m also having a pretty difficult time choosing between Eevee and Pikachu, Will I be able to get an Alolan Raichu? if not that I’ll probably go with an Eevee. Ugh, I just have all the questions.

Cinema #41: Slice

Hey Gang!

What can I tell you about Slice without spoiling it? The Boy Wonder and I were wandering around our family video and came across this special gem. As soon as I saw the back cover, I knew I was going to pick it up, but once I actually watched the film, I knew it was going to be a new edition to my favorites list. It’s a cheesy horror comedy, with a black female lead, about a small town with supernatural neighbors, and now they have a mystery because pizza delivery drivers are dropping like flies. If there is one thing I can’t resist, it’s a mystery, but a mystery with Zazie Beets, Chance the Rapper, Witches, Werewolves and ghosts? Did I really need anything else?
