Low-Effort Blogging: A Breakdown of ’12 Angry Men’

12 Angry Men is one of the great American dramatic films and an absolute master-class in writing: an enthralling story set almost entirely in one room and consisting of nothing but, well, twelve very different men debating back and forth. It's what happens when you have a first-class director (Sydney Lumet) leading a first-class cast … Continue reading Low-Effort Blogging: A Breakdown of ’12 Angry Men’

Low-Effort Blogging: David Stewart

This week I'm outsourcing to author / YouTuber David Stewart, whom I find to be one of the more interesting and helpful creators on the platform, especially where writing advice is concerned, though his social / economic commentary is generally excellent as well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eqFiUzCe3nA&list=PLrcjHcKc8BLiI28WyqwJK3ChsZT3pSMGL&index=133&ab_channel=DavidStewart https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HyHsxkUgu2c&list=PLrcjHcKc8BLjrnN9DpFJC4tqj98XZPlEO&index=4&t=392s&ab_channel=DavidStewart https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PzaqSf_I9qg&ab_channel=DavidStewart https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pFkF0ozf8yM&t=2s&ab_channel=DavidStewart https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RR3cRQEQGs4&t=2s

Low-Effort Blogging: Marvel / DC Comic Con Videos

Had a pretty full day and didn't get around to writing a post, so more low-effort blogging. This time I'm outsourcing to YouTuber It'sJustSomeRandomGuy (whom I've mentioned before) and reaching back to the dawn of the second comic book film renaissance. Today, I'm sharing some of my favorite videos of his on the subject of...well, … Continue reading Low-Effort Blogging: Marvel / DC Comic Con Videos

Low-Effort Blogging: Consoling Thoughts of St. Francis de Sales

Extra low-effort this time, as I haven't listened to all of these all the way through, only bits and pieces. But I trust enough in the great Saint, whom I take as one of my personal patrons, that I'm not afraid to offer his words sight unseen, though it's against my usual practice. (The narrator … Continue reading Low-Effort Blogging: Consoling Thoughts of St. Francis de Sales

Low-Effort Blogging: BBC ‘Wild Side’

Outsourcing this week to funny talking animals, courtesy of the BBC series Walk on the Wild Side, which, as you can see, is just comedic voice-overs on some pretty impressive nature footage. This is one of the shorter compilation videos you can find of the series, but personally I think it's the best overall. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kg1gK2E7dAQContinue reading Low-Effort Blogging: BBC ‘Wild Side’
