    Stress less in the Summertime

    Summertime and the living is easy…. Never were these words more true to me than at this time of the year. There are so many things that evoke summer to me including: cold, decadent ice cream in almost any flavor, although my preference is towards butter pecan, strawberry, peach, or Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Monkey; the wonderful smell of Hawaiian Tropics suntan lotion; the ability to wear lots of white; the long, drawn-out days where…

    Closed Off Circle 4: A Book Review

    –Corey Wagner   It usually takes until March or April of each year for me to (mostly) catch up on all of the movies I’m interested in from the previous year. Still, I can’t help but be disappointed by the theatrical releases thus far in 2015. Sure, I absolutely loved Ex Machina and Mad Max: Fury Road, but I’m not sure I could even assemble a top 5 list from the first half (and then…

    Junk Jewelry: Vintage, Steampunk, Consignment, Oh My!

    Have you ever seen beautiful jewelry creations in magazines or online and wished that you could create the same types of pieces? I often wish that I had the ability and the time to be able to come up with some of the novel pieces that I see everywhere I look these days. Jewelry is an ever-growing business and one in which you can be as creative or not in what you decide to make.…

    Communication: is it a lost art?

    Throughout time it seems as though the human race has always had a hard time communicating with each other. Whether it is a thousand years ago or just yesterday, there is always something that ends up getting missed in our daily lives that we had good intentions of telling another person. Communication is a tricky thing for certain because sometimes it’s hard to read other people that you come into contact with. However, there are…

    Women and their roles in Kentucky History

    Closed Off Circle V. 3: Fury Road Will Restore Your Faith in the Big-Budget Action Movie

    Corey Wagner This isn’t supposed to work for several reasons. Very few people would consider George Miller a young man at this point in his life (he was in his last 60s during the filming of the movie). The last three movies he directed were Babe: Pig in the City, Happy Feet, and Happy Feet Two. Regardless of your opinion of those films, George Miller hadn’t directed an action movie in 30 years (Mad Max…

    The Kitchen Renovation Project: What you need to know before you start

    “What does an average person need to know before they get started on doing a kitchen update or renovation?” Well, it just so happens that I have a few ideas in mind that I can pass along as part of my own dealings in this matter. I will tell you that I am in no way claiming to be an expert on the subject. However, I can certainly give the general public some thoughts on…

    Closed Off Circle Volume 2: Michel Gondry & Mood Indigo

    Corey Wagner My first exposure to director Michel Gondry was his 2004 film Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind , for which he won an Academy Award (Best Original Screenplay, as one of the co-writers). The acting and Gondry’s unique visual style help sell the movie’s unconventional take on the romantic-comedy. After that he wrote and directed the equally surreal The Science of Sleep in 2006, another movie I am very fond of. At this…

    Closed Off Circle: A Film Blog, Volume 1: Introduction

    Corey Wagner My first idea when I decided I wanted to do this blog was to just delve in and begin discussing movies/directors right away. As I was outlining the first post in my head, I kept thinking about footnotes and asides that would further explain where I was approaching the movie from. Then it hit me: just make a post about your biases, views on film, controversial opinions, viewing history, etc. Now if someone…
