30 BEFORE 30


    So I'm going to turn 25 years old. Now for a lot of you that might seem like a whatever thing. But for me that is not that, mainly because most people at this age are already working towards some career they want. While I finished a film degree and and working on a bachelors degree, and completely vague idea of what I want to do with the rest of forever. So believe it or not I made a list of thirty things to accomplish before the age of thirty years old. A list compiled of both personal and professional goals, and travel destinations that are not in any particular order because I first wrote this list down bye hand trying to keep the list to actually thing that can be accomplished. But some really stupid or crazy ideas may have slipped by with out my knowledge. 

1. To take a woman out on a proper date. : This is something that I wrote down because in all my near 25 years of life I have not taken any woman out on a REAL date we she knows I have romantic intentions or the other way around.

2. Write at least one book. : Yeah this is a goal I had ever since I was a kid reading Goosebumps, Sounder, or other books that I read often. 

3. Lose wight and keep the weight off. : This is mainly for health reasons, my family has a history  of diabetes; I want to live till I'm one 100 years old,and keep my foot while doing it. 

4. Learn to sail the seven seas. : Okay when I was in the navy I loved it when we did traveled, and wanted to get a house-boat. But the sad thing is house-boats are not actually made to go out over the seven seas.

5. Make a real film. : Yeah I have to put my film degree to good use some how.

6. Learn to surf. : I want to surf and be able to take pictures of others surfing simple as that.

7. Visit and tour around Hawaii. : There are many things that I wanna see and do all over Hawaii.

8. Relearn Sign Language. : When I was younger I had a crush on a preachers daughter who just so happened to be deaf. I learned sign language to talk to her. 

9. Visit and tour around Australia. : Same as Hawaii.

10. Relearn to speak spanish. : My mother is kind of disappointed that I don't know spanish any more. Every time she talks to me in spanish I give her a blank, cold, lifeless exprisian until she repeats what she said in english.

11. Kiss someone in the rain. : What can I say I'm a hopeless romantic.

12. Visit and tour around Europe. : Same as other travel destinations.

13. Sail on the open seven seas : Yeah I just want to live and travel on a boat.

14. Learn how to play an instrument. : Yeah I also always wanted to learn how to play guatir when I was in my teens but that didn't work out, but still wanna play an instrument.

15. Finally go to comic-con at least one year. : I'm never been to Comic-con. Do you know what it's like to be a nerd that's never been there. I'm the laughing stock of the nerd community.

16. Find out how to Cosplay. : I just want to dress up as Jason Todd or even Aqualad.

17. Go to a musical for the first time. : I never really been to a musical but want to go. I mean many that can be a date idea.

18. Cook a fancy meal for a fancy lady. : I love to cook and for some reason I just want to cook for that special someone.

19. Start dressing grown man sexy. : So I actually like to dress up but don't have anything to dress up for.

20. Pay all my student loans. : I really hate being in debt.

Okay so I just recently watched an awesome film that I thought was going to be a romantic comedy. I mean it was a pretty fair assumption the way it was pushed to the audiences. Well let's not keep you in the dark on what I seen; it was ABOUT TIME. Yeah I love a good Rom-Com from time to time and I'm not ashamed of it. And I will tell you why.

  When people hear the the term Rom-Com they think something crazy or stupid like a Nicholas Sparks film. Now that is just the wrong way to look at it... Mainly because you just imagined the wrong genre of film. Nicholas Sparks is straight up "Lady Mind Porn", while Rom-Coms are appealing to both men and women. But even though both genders are generally the target audience, you may notice that the plot of the film you watch in this genre are extremely different if you have a man or women in the protagonist seat. At which you are starting to think that I'm rambling nonsense; please stay with me and you will see what I'm talking about.

  Yes this is the kind of movie you are thinking of when you are  thinking Rom-Com. The two main leads are  heterosexuals while as far as the story goes. They either do a meet cute in the movie or just already know each other because of a mutual hatred for each other. Yeah it doesn't really matter  what happens during the movie, mainly because these movies follow the MET-CUTE formula. The two met, they get to know each other,  the misunderstanding happen, misunderstanding  tends to get resolved and they live happily ever after.  


   Okay now let's talk about the women centered film. Rom-Coms for her, or as I like to call them "MODERN FAIRY TALES or LADY MIND PORN". Now these are the films that women like because they see them selves in the main character. 
  Now these films more times then not will have a woman as a main Protagonist. She can either be a complete screw up or a tough independent woman who is over worked and under played. Yeah the key  to these movies are the main character goes through very little character development if any. Oh, and there is also a wedding in the film, you gotta be careful because the wedding can be implied and not shown. But if they do show a wedding it will either be at the beginning or end, and if not the whole film is about a wedding. See below for examples.

   Great now we get to the him portion of this blog. Most romantic movies with a male lead try not to use the word romantic in it's description, mainly for the benefits of the male actors in these movies. Trust me you never wanna be type cast as the face for "Lady Mind Porn", you can even ask Matthew McConaughey he will tell you the same thing.
  The best examples of these films would have to be Scott Pilgram V.S. The World. If you read the books or watched the movie you know scott learns a few lessons by the end. That is not by mistake, in society or more western society we have a tendency to demand much more from men then we do women. I mean yes I get that women have equal rights to men. But men have the daunting task of "becoming", while women have a choice in the matter. Men just have to "become" always growing and always learning and rarely getting help along the way. That's something the Rom-Com protagonist have over real men they get the mentor or the funny sidekick to help or even do things for them.


   Well that is it for this weeks installment. Next week I will elaborate more on the DAMSEL CAUSING DISTRESS along with the more recognizable DAMSEL IN DISTRESS. Until then just take this with a grain of salt. Also don't forget the most important part.
