Music post: Henry Purcell

Okay either there’s a demand for Zepuka or there’s a demand for more music posts. Probably both, but finding out these sorts of things will take time and effort we simply don’t have. So let’s just bank on it and see if it works! I mean seriously, what do we have to lose?

Not Your Usual Friday…

Greetings from ZePuKa! Obviously, I’m not the usual poster for Fridays, but OhYo decided that he would slack off to take a skiing trip instead of writing a post, so you’re all stuck with the first substitute writer today! ^_^ As such, I hereby declare war if OhYo does not keep his promise to make a REAL post next week, after his virtually 3-week hiatus. (1 – Self-proclaimed ‘Gimme Day’; 2 – Explanation of ‘Gimme Day’ and Substitute writers; 3 – Substitute writer) Now with the pleasantry and formalities out of the way, let the real content commence!

I had a hard time deciding on what to write about, and thought of things from politics to the origins of head cheese. However, I’ve come to find that HT totally rocks at politics and thus my efforts in that area would be futile, and head cheese… While I might have the upper hand in that, I figured the first guest post shouldn’t be so… far fetched, ‘lest the idea of guest writers be shot down as a result. Therefore I decided to take a different approach; I tried to think what OhYo might post about, and then decided that I should write a post that OhYo would NEVER do. And to be quite honest, with all the reviews Stretch does, I’m dissapointed that this genre has not yet been seen on Zomgee! Henceforth, I give you the first. Ever.

No, You Can’t Have My Dog

Seven PoundsDon’t even start. You can’t have my dog. I know I’m a day late, and I don’t really care. If you had the past two days that I’ve had, you’d probably be in a corner, crying.

However, that’s not what I wanted to write about. I want to write about a movie I saw last Thursday. It’s a story about a man. A man who has a profound affect/effect on people he finds. I want to talk about Seven Pounds.

Be very aware that there are many spoilers, both implied and otherwise, so unless you’ve seen the movie or don’t plan on seeing it (in that case, what is wrong with you?) PLEASE don’t keep reading. Come back and read this after you’ve seen it- and believe me, its well worth seeing in theaters.

Movie Review: Hancock

Hancock. Now this was a movie I’ve been waiting to see. I have to admit that I wanted to see this more than Indiana Jones. More than Hulk and The Happening too.

I figured that I’d be disappointed by this movie, but I could hope for the best, at least. I try not to read too much about movies before they come out (other that the MPAA rating and such) just so when a movie is nothing like the few previews I saw of it, I’ll be surprised.

That’s exactly the case in this movie. I went in thinking it’d be a comedy where Will Smith starts out a super hero bum and turns into a Men In Black agent-esque crime fighting champion. A black comedy meets Spiderman perhaps. Of course, when you think about it that way, it doesn’t sound like a great movie.

I don’t want to give anything away about the storyline, but if you’re looking for the Will Smith comedy routine, you’ll get a bit of it, but so much more. Continue reading Movie Review: Hancock
