You didn’t ask for it, but here’s more anyway.

I made another song. If you like The Warriors then like, check this out.

Black-Hearted Diamond Dogs (I made a song)

Music by me inspired by Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. The wails and echoes are taken from “Ghost Tape #10” which is not only insanely creepy, it’s got a highly interesting backstory and seemed to fit well with the life of Venom, Kaz, Ocelot, and the rest of the Diamond Dogs.

MBTI: Star Wars

So I’ve been gone for a bit, I know.

I’ve noticed a pattern with myself and Zombies Ruin Everything. I dig in, write nonstop for a few months and then I stop and I’m fine with not doing anything with it for three months or so. I don’t plan this out, but I can’t keep writing when I don’t want to write. That being said, I’m working on a new screenplay that I may or may not post here when I’m done writing that, which is what’s been taking up my time when I’m on butt and on the computer. There’s not really an audience since I’ve mostly become known for MBTI stuff but we’ll see how it goes.

ANYWAY, the new Star Wars is out and since the layout of the site is so simple, it’s much easier for me to collect on the characters in a single post than for you to search through the archives for them.

Fun fact, I was one of the thousands (Just one) of people that sent in recorded auditions for the role of Finn in The Force Awakens. Clearly, I didn’t get it but I do have a clip of myself watching the movie. I’m on the right, Bryce is on the left .

Let me know what you think of the movie.

Warning! Spoilers ahead!

Wow, I can’t believe Jar Jar is in this one!

Just kidding. So now that I’ve written the review for The Force Awakens and told you pretty much nothing about what’s on screen, this post is focused on thoughts I had about the movie that leave no spoiling stone unturned. If you’ve watched the movie, keep reading. If you don’t want anything ruined- do the opposite of keeping reading. Continue reading

GOING THE DISTANCE: How Sylvester Stallone created a film Icon and why he still matters

Written by Jacob Ethan Sapp!

When Rocky hit the scene in 1976, it introduced the world to the one of the most iconic characters in the history of cinema, won the Academy Awards for Best Picture and Best Director, and became America’s favorite underdog story. It’s almost crazy to think about how well received the original film was nearly 40 years later.

There were no early warning signs, this movie just struck out of the blue. Produced on a modest budget (by the same team Winkler-Chertoff pairing that produced every subsequent film), and starring a virtually unknown lead actor/Writer in Sylvester Stallone, this film could easily have been overlooked as an amusing, but insignificant character piece in a year otherwise dominated by Scorsese’s seminal masterpiece, Taxi Driver, or the truly terrific, Network. The film didn’t boast cutting edge effects, a big-name composer such as John Williams, (who at the time was probably working on a little picture he assumed nobody would ever watch called Star Wars), there were no big action set pieces, or shocking twists. It’s not a glamorous affair, as such Rocky’s success hinged on the old-school fundamentals of great storytelling, genuinely terrific acting, and a steady-handed director. Continue reading

Warning! Spoilers ahead!

I’m trying to quit. I really am. This may be the last post directly related to The Phantom Pain for a while but I’ve got too many thoughts on this game to not go on and on about it here. Especially with that ending. Love it or hate it, can you blame me for my mind working at full capacity to make sense of it all?

Here are some thoughts about some things. Continue reading
