So it begins.
Okay, so this isn’t that epic or extreme as much as I’d like to think it is. But even so, this is likely to be the last summer film challenge we do, considering that the world is about to end. (What an end it will be, though! Can you imagine a better year to end on than the one where The Avengers, The Dark Knight Rises, and The Hobbit are all released?! But I digress.)
Back to business: National Lampoon’s Animal House.

Four score and three years ago, our forefathers (meaning, us) set forth a new film challenge which challenged the very nature of film challenges.
Now in it’s third iteration, it finds itself in being the last iteration because the Apocalypse is nearly upon us. Dick Clark is dead, Kim Kardashian is dating Kanye, and our apartment is out of toilet paper… and something about a Mayan calendar.
So, we said to ourselves, “Selves, shouldn’t we make the most of the last bit of our lives and go out watching some fantastic films.” And our selves said, “No! That’s a really stupid idea!” And so we said to them, “Screw you selves! We’re going home!” (What we really meant to say was “go watch movies” but we never really liked our selves anyway, so who cares what they think of us?)
Here’s how this works. We challenge each other to watch movies that the other hasn’t seen but we think they should see. Then we review them, and get into heated arguments about why the other is totally wrong. In addition, we have added a short TV series to the challenge and a small number of classics that neither of us have seen, but probably should.
Thus we arrive at this moment, sitting at our desks randomly stringing a bunch of words together in the hope that they might make a little bit of sense. This is most likely a fruitless endeavor. And I’m thinking about giving up. I’ve probably lost all cognitive function and three years off my soul, so let’s get on with it.
Hello! I am LOGSTORM!!
Here, we strive to write about things that will inspire people to do great things with their lives and to make the world a better place! However, we ultimately fail miserably at that, we just end up writing about stupid movies that we’ve seen, and nobody reads it anyway. This is a problem that we have addressed by not posting much of anything in the last 9 months, instead spending all of our time making movies and trying to convince ourselves that all the pain and suffering is worth it. Hopefully, a new location and a renewed sense of purpose will solve all of our problems!
No. Don’t go there.
Anyway, a question you may be asking yourselves about us is, “what can you expect from us in the future now that we’re on the road to solving our personal problems?” Movies, most likely. If we feel like writing about other things that interest me (for there are many things), then we will. I don’t kn0w what they might be, but, hey, it’s fun to discover things together!
Another question you might be asking is, “why is he referring to himself in third-person plural?” Our answer to that is, “Uh… Oh! Bird! Over there!”
Props to those who get this reference.
Summer Film Challenge 2012!
This summer, just like the previous two summers, my good friend Tyler (http://soontobeangel.wordpress.com/) and I will be embarking on the Summer Film Challenge 2012 where we challenge each other to watch movies that we’ve liked before and think the other one will like as well. We usually end up disagreeing and getting into heated arguments about why the other is completely wrong about their opinion. Yay! Strife among friends! So, look forward to that! Bye!
