The Clearlaketonian Harold

Funeral services are pending for a Chinese vacuum cleaner known as Wang. Wang was thoughtlessly left on top of a soon to be scorching hot furnace grate at the Clear Lake cottage known as Millie. Millie and Wang were somewhat acquainted as business associates, both catering to fun time Clear lake renters. Tragically under appreciated, […]

Vars Journal

Var walked down the road towards the meet up spot, just thinking on the last couple trades. New knife on his hip, a sword in each hand, and a pack on his back. Armor clanking with each step as he casually scanned the road edges. Seymoure hadn’t been a good trade for different reasons than […]

She Flies with her own wings.. To know who I am I needed to remind myself of what i was and never wanted to be anymore. Growth is painful. It hurts like breaking structure whether that is of your bones or your core. Change is painful and really disturbing. It makes you feel uncertain and […]

While Travis Scott is breaking records, people are wondering if he and Kylie broke up. Since Kylie suspected him of cheating, there’s been some turmoil in the relationship. Does he even have time to cheat? The “Astroworld” artist set a record and made nearly $2 million for ONE show! Only legends like Lady Gaga and […]

The issue I will be discussing is black women representation and portrayal in films. This issue is a personal one for me because I am a black woman myself and I would love to see a more positive representation of women but mostly black women in film. To strengthen my argument, I will be using […]

Alexander Skarsgard earned his first Emmy nomination and win in 2017 for his supporting role in “Big Little Lies” as abusive husband Perry Wright. But this year he could bring his entire family of Swedish thespians along with him. Not only can we expect to see Alexander back on the Emmy ballot this year, but also his brother Bill Skarsgard and dad Stellan Skarsgard. Alexander is hoping to follow his Emmy victory with a Best Movie/Limited Actor nomination for the British spy drama “The Little Drummer Girl,” in which he plays Israeli intelligence officer Gadi Becker. “Drummer Girl” aired in the United States on AMC and it’s based on a novel by John le Carre, just like another recent spy thriller that turned out to be a major Emmy contender, “The Night Manager.” Given its prestigious pedigree — the limited series also stars Michael Shannon and was directed by the internationally renowned Park Chan-wook (“Oldboy,” “The Handmaiden”) — don’t rule out a return engagement for Alexander. [pmc-related-link href=”https://pages.email.goldderby.com/signup/” type=”SIGN UP” target=”_self”]for Gold Derby’s free newsletter with latest predictions[/pmc-related-link] Bill Skarsgard recently rose to fame as the evil clown Pennywise in the blockbuster horror film “It” (2017), and now he’s an Emmy contender for Best Movie/Limited Supporting Actor for another project based on Stephen King‘s fiction: Hulu’s “Castle Rock,” in which he plays the Kid, a mysterious inmate at Shawshank State Penitentiary. Their father Stellan Skarsgard is a veteran character actor with a long list of credits ranging from “Breaking the Waves” (1996) to “Mamma Mia!” (2008) to “The Avengers” (2012). But he has never been nominated for an Emmy. This year he could face off against his son Bill for Best Movie/Limited Supporting Actor for HBO’s miniseries “Chernobyl,” which premieres in May and tells the true story of the 1986 nuclear power plant disaster. Stellan plays Boris Shcherbina, the Soviet official who led the USSR government commission in the wake of the accident.

I’m a 40+-year-old woman, and I gotta say that I’m pissed off. I didn’t march, I didn’t write, I didn’t give up lipstick (and cheekbone-highlighting blush), and I didn’t burn my bra so “new feminists” could form hen-party lynch mobs to whine about poor choices they made thus not take responsibility for their own lousy […]

The Slurrings of a Wandering Journeyman Under Spiritual Oath

Cataloging walks from rivers to libraries and back to rivers and back to libraries in the breath of thoughts. The faces are unfamiliar but seem to be getting to know me in their own way. I bounce a blue racquetball to occupy the moments. Sometimes I lose control of it. Most of the time I […]

I know this is a sports blog, and honestly I’m sure athletes have this problem as well, seeing as how most of them have hands. Not to slight athletes who may not, but I’m not going down that path. Which brings me to the point of this blog: why is it so hard to adequately […]
