Sleepy Hollow :: Television Review

Sleepy Hollow (2013) Mondays on FOX Pilot, September 16, 2013 “Awakened” :: Sleepy Hollow Supernatural time travelling literary characters come to be in the not so sleepy town of Sleepy Hollow and the next thing you know biblical end of times, death, condemned witches and the Four Horseman are being resurrected. I am a fan of time travel tales, and also have a predilection for characters who are “out of their time” trying to make it in a modern world, so I came to this pilot with more interest than skeptical misgivings. Thought there were storytelling flaws, they were minor … Continue reading Sleepy Hollow :: Television Review

My Top 300 :: 71-75

Disappears into the sky :: SOTD

“You said you loved me, and I kind of believe that, but these days who knows what it means. So, we sat by the Laundromat, with magazines and cigarettes, talked about a million other things.” My heart is stolen in the little moments. Stolen conversations in the booths of 24-hour diners, waiting on the platform for a late train home, or sitting at the Laundromat watching your clothes tumble in circles. I am taken in by words, by random things said, and by people who have interesting things to say. And music, always music, you have to have some kind … Continue reading Disappears into the sky :: SOTD
