The library is the equivalent of Disney World, by my own perspective. Every day, since the age of six, I would always read. Read, read, and read, all day long, from dusk till dawn. Usually, kids around my age would get ...

Jake’s song of the day: Fire in the Twilight – WANG CHUNG Jake’s video clip of the day: The Green Mile (1999)   May is easily one of the most beautiful months of the year. It is the peak of Spring, where flowers are blooming, trees are looking alive, and people are getting outside to do super awesome activities. May is also a big, fat reminder for students and teachers that school is almost over, for the summer! May has always given me a sign of relief, a sign of happiness, as I finally see the “light of freedom” from ...

Jake’s song of the day: Teenage Riot – SONIC YOUTH Jake’s Movie Clip of the day: Benchwarmers (2006) Bryton woke up almost immediately on hard-wood floor, after he had been knocked unconscious from collapsing on a brass doorknob. He felt cursed to be alive, after witnessing the most horrific sight of his life. He felt like he would rather die, than to see that horrific, demonic face once again. What he witnessed was pure evil, an evil that he had never seen before. After all the years of stealing from people and hurting people, Bryton felt as though he was ...

Jake’s movie clip of the day: http://youtu.be/AgbFDvvVr0w Jake’s song of the day: http://youtu.be/Y2wkR-jBpuo Ahh, the 80s. It’s a decade I truly wish I was a part of. Boom boxes, parachute pants, big earrings, crazy hair, classic rock, the Walkman, cassette tapes, and classic movies that I will remember for a lifetime, were all a part of this era in time. If someone were to ask me what decade I would visit, my answer would easily be… the 80s. In my previous movie review, I mentioned that I chose to review the movie Super over an 80s classic. Because I’ve seen ...

Jake’s movie clip of the day: http://youtu.be/pFriRcIwqNU Jake’s song of the day: http://youtu.be/jWkMhCLkVOg Warning: This post contains spoilers!! Shut up, crime! “Super,” the movie review, is here! Before I started writing my latest movie review, I was going to focus on an 80s classic, but that’s going to have to come later, because “Super” seems to have caught my attention. The movie was filmed in the year 2010, released in April 2011. This was around the same time the first “Kick-Ass” movie hit the box-office. Being another superhero movie similar to “Kick-Ass,” “Super” was trapped in its casted shadow. Even when ...

Jake’s song of the day: I write about a lot of things, in case anyone didn’t know. I feel like it’s time I actually wrote about myself. I know most people don’t like reading, at all. That’s OK; it’s completely understandable. However, I think reading is just as important having a discussion with someone, only that you’re the listener and the author is the storyteller. The real struggle, especially for me, since I’m an aspiring writer, is that there aren’t a lot of listeners. I’m not forcing anyone to read; I’m not going to complain like a little whiny-butt; I just think it’s ...

Jake’s song of the day: http://youtu.be/Q3T9ayhdgf8 Elizabeth Tip decided to attend college because she wanted to get a BA in psychology, as her boyfriend, Joshua Foster, decided to go to classes for engineering. Elizabeth was shorter than Joshua, with light-brown, extended hair. Joshua could never keep his eyes off of hers, for her eyes reminded him of the moonlight. As corny as Joshua was, his stature was much surpassing than that of Elizabeth’s. Elizabeth could look at his smile for hours, for his smile was simple paradise.  The lovely, corny couple have been dating for over five years, ever since ...

Jake’s song of the day http://youtu.be/v30hFJ-T0zw Have you read part one of The Man in the Red Zoot Suit? If not, click here to catch up! Bryton Pear looked around the interior of the Cranston house, which he and Ret were exploring in a most stealth-like manner. The interior of the house was massive and it appeared to be much larger than the exterior. Being the most colossal home Bryton had ever stepped into, the Cranston house was also disturbingly quiet. Of course, when performing a crime such as this, Bryton would expect everything to be silent. However, this sort of silence ...

Jake’s song of the day: http://youtu.be/UbEVzpdOlVg        Hey, everyone, this is Jacob Arasim, finder of Your Weekly Popcorn and I think it’s time to share something new other than just another short story. In all honesty, if I’m going to have a blog, I would expect it to have some variety other than… yeah… just another short story. Stay poppin’, Boise State. Throughout the years of being a confused, curious, and often dumb-founded teenager, I’ve always had a love for scary movies. However, scary movies weren’t always my favorite. They used to be my poison. Being someone who watched The ...

Jake’s song of the day: http://youtu.be/fuhgWXg4rw4 Old people are so nice. They tell stories about their experiences in life, how they met loved ones, and they’re all just so cute! However, there’s some old people who are just plain cranky, confused, and just plain rude. Most people can’t help but ask themselves, “Why, old person? Why do you have to be so mean? Is it because I am not old?” Why are some old people so cranky? Well, the world may never know. In this particular story, violence is taken on whole new level and it all takes place in ...
