I Am Not Here
Howdy matey, I'm Ryan. Twenty years old. Christian Anarchist. Nerd. Absurd. I think philosophy is rad.

I do things. Sometimes I do things all day.

I am planning on double majoring in creative writing and philosophy while minoring in film.

I long to be a theological virtuoso; unfortunately I am merely a Padawan.

I want to tell stories for the rest of my life.

If I grew a beard I would just look like a kid in disguise.

I'm in a joke band called Kids in Disguise. We just released an EP called "So Far. So Bad . . . So Far" on bandcamp.

If you want to talk, please shoot me a message; I would love to talk about , well, anything. Film, literature, theology, music, you call it. I will answer anything you throw at me, :).

I love you because you are you and you deserve it.
OH! I saw that! So it’s you!

Yeah! I followed you and some of the other people on here that I missed. (Those I could find anyway, so many people left.) It’s strange using Tumblr for a site rather than a personal blog, x).

http://www.killcinema.com/

Here is the website!

Kill Cinema is dedicated to the appreciation, dissection, and exploration of film. Cinema is an ever evolving form of narrative and if you think you have found the meaning, kill it. Burn down the preconception of enlightenment to build something new.

 

KILL CINEMA

Here is the Tumblr!

Talk to me about film or your life, :).

"Oculus pervades as a modern portrait of family dysfunction and the distorted horrors of a traumatic childhood. What could have easily been another cheap foray into this underappreciated genre stands as an example for what these films should aspire to. Something that sinks its claws into your brain and festers, refusing to leave when the credits hit. Something that takes advantage of the philosophical undertones inherent within fear. Something that strives for importance. Something that lives.”

Our Movie of the Week is Mike Flanagan’s Oculus. When working on all cylinders, the film succeeds as a family drama with a supernatural background. The true horror in this film is intrinsically human. Read the review…

Honestly, you guys should check Oculus out this weekend.

Oh! I am still kind of on Tumblr, though!

I started a website where a friend of mine and myself (hopefully we will have some more writers soon) write about film! It’s called Kill Cinema and it is going great. We post a few things a week, :). I’m really excited.

Anyway, I run the site’s Tumblr, so I am active there and would love to talk to you again. I just don’t think I can run two Tumblr blogs.

The website is: killcinema.com

The Tumblr is: http://killcinema.tumblr.com/

I’ll post a link to the Tumblr and site separately as well.

Hey all, I know it has been a while.

So, I disappeared for a while; and I’m not sure when I will be back. I had to stop spending so much time on here so that I could concentrate on some stuff going on in my life. I assume no one has really been that curious but I wanted to let you know, just in case. I miss “seeing” what has been going on in your lives and I hope all is well.

Anyway, I’m still not sure I have the time to come back; but if anyone wants to keep a definite correspondence with me you can message me and I will make sure to contact you.

Love you guys! Perhaps something will calm down in my life and I’ll be back.

P.S. A poem of mine is going to be published in a literary journal in May, :D!

So Far, So Bad . . . So Far, by Kids in Disguise

sacred-rebellion:

See what people are saying about “So Far, So Bad … So Far” so far: 

"Oh no, not this again." (Darin, the producer) 

"This album showed me what a loser my boyfriend was." (Ryan’s ex-girlfriend/Kevin’s current girlfriend) 

"Listening to this feels like accidentally pouring orange juice in your bowl of cereal." (Charlie Moon, Singer/Songwriter) 

“The greatest thing about this EP: turning it off.” (Scott Foster – actor/all-around awesome person) 

“Sucking is part of our gag.” (Kevin) 

“It is not okay.” (Ryan’s new and improved girlfriend)

queerestmonk:

If you are a Christian and you think same-sex sex is sinful then you are obligated not to have sex with people of your same sex.

That’s it. That’s the end of your obligations related to gay sex.

You are NOT obligated to publicly condemn homosexuality.
You are NOT obligated to police the sex life of others.
You are NOT obligated to have sex with someone who is the opposite sex of you.
You are NOT obligated to use your pulpit to guilt or shame others.

You are obligated, however, to always walk in love.

So, I saw American Hustle and barfed this out afterward (it’s kind of a review I guess).

"Some of this actually happened."

David O. Russell helms an ambitious and comedic film that is everything it wants to be. Scorsesse-esque, “American Hustle” brings to mind the ardent energy of Goodfellas.

Raging Bull by Martin Scorsese
This film is up there with Scorsese’s greatest efforts (including Taxi Driver). A brilliant piece of art, 5/5.
