"Rick and Morty" is one of my favorite TV shows of all time. The show's premise is that an alcoholic grandfather, Rick, rejoins his family after 20 years of being gone. Once he rejoins his family, he takes his grandson, Morty, on all sorts of crazy adventures across different dimensions. While running from different governments. In this clip, Rick turns himself into a pickle and calls himself "Pickle Rick". The reasoning behind this is moot because he says that he just did it just because he can. The pure absurdity of this show is why it is one of my favorite TV shows.
One of my passions is creating digital things. Such as: Photo Shopping and making little movie trailers, but now, I have a new project. Creating my own website. I don't really know why I created a website, but I do want it to continue growing. It's not much now, and perhaps it will crash and burn, but while it lasts, I'm just glad I'm the only student that has his own website* My only regret is that the name of my website is already taken by another fellow. *I'm the only student that has his own website to my knowledge.
I've always had a small passion in film making, I may want to be a director someday, but really, making movies is just for fun. Prior to making that movie, I made a homemade trailer using footage from various "Mad Max" movies. But when Mrs. Allen tasked us to make a "ScreenCastify" about a book we just read, I decided to take it one step further. Together with our group, we shot some footage and put it into order and the "iMovie" did the rest. At the time of writing, the video currently has 70 views.
Stereotypical of a teenage male to really enjoy playing video games, but hear me out on this one. While some games are mindless wastes of time, "Call of Duty", for one. Many of them provide adventures, interactive books, where YOU choose what happens, who lives and dies. Will you join a team of rebels to overthrow a dictator? Or will you join him and squash the rebellion? When making those choices in game, you are faced with a dilemma, but in the real world, it's all a game. The leader of your real world is still in power and you are not with standing by his side. Games also battle depression as mentioned in the link.
Movies are my second favorite thing to spend my time. They provide a way to experience history, space travel, time travel, and various other things from the comfort of your couch. 150 years ago, people never thought this would be possible. From Charlie Chaplin in "The Circus" to Chris Pratt in "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2". One of my favorite movie genres are movies that you have to think about what's happening a little bit. Like the movie "Inception". It can get confusing at times, and you may have to watch it a couple times to fully get it, but once you understand it, there is a sense of satisfaction in your life. The link attached is IMDb, and it provides trivia, information, and images of almost every movie ever.
One of my favorite activities is reading Stephen King. King is one of my favorite authors and he writes really great books. They scare you, while putting some humor in the pages. Something I really like about King is that he keeps up to date in what is going on in popular culture and that, to me, makes the books feel closer to me, which can get unsettling.
