Mixture of Dreams: Part Trece (TV Edition)

Fall is upon us. The Giant is very excited! All of his favorite shows are coming off of hiatus – he is so delighted! There’s many shows that he’s waiting for. Batwoman and Legacies are bringing up new lores.

The Giant decided to invite his friends, Xena and Spartacus, over to watch the magical TV box. Amazing they thought, that the magical box could talk. The Giant put on the CW show Arrow. The warriors enjoyed the fighting. Xena thought the “green warrior” was exciting. Spartacus didn’t think he was frightening. Though, they both raved about the slicing.

Night came about…and his guests were falling asleep on the couch.

The Giant thanked his friends for coming, and he happily walked them out. So tired, he knew sleep was coming about. He climbed in bed, with 13 Reasons Why, dreams filled his head. One being he was exhausted, and sleep he spotted. Good night and sweet dreams, you wonderful legendary writers. This Giant, hopes you all have a great night, especially the marvelous subscribers!

Mixture of Dreams: Part Twelve (TV Edition)

Once Upon A Time — This Giant used to be obsessed with that show. Every Sunday night, The Giant made sure to watch, with hope. Hope that everyone got their happy endings, and lived happily ever after. The Evil Queen taught us How To Get Away With Murder, becoming unoffending, and filled with laughter. The Giant loved watching Snow White and Prince Charming fight. Their love was like Black Lightning- full of light.

The Giant was wearing his colorful tunic, and rocking in his favorite green rocking chair. His eyes were as red as Archie’s (from Riverdale) hair. He decided to go to bed, as it was now night. Laying down, he started to lose sight. Dreams attacked his head. The Giant was seeing double. He even imagined Paw Patrol’s Rubble.

Good night and sweet dreams, you legendary writers! This Giant, hopes that you all have wonderful dreams, of your desires.

Dear Father

Dear Father,

I miss you everyday. Growing up without you has been tough. I don’t know if I became the man that you would’ve imagined, but I definitely tried to become the best man that’s possible. It’s been an obstacle. Not knowing what’s right or wrong. Grief eating at me, cracks in a song. A kid broken, with words unspoken.

I loved you with all of my heart. Though, as a young boy, I never quite valued your attention. As a teen, I felt like I needed you for ascension. Body changing, emotions phasing, and mind racing. Questions that I had. Curiosities like a fad. Man, I was so mad. I needed you! I missed you! I cried to the sky with emotions of blue. Candle after candle, I wished, and blew. Nothing occurred, nothing new.

An adult I became, and the days got easier. I was able to go on with your teachings, pushed to the front of my mind. The light shining on me, and I was no longer blind. I did the best that I could. I observed. I learned. I defeated every obstacle, and gained new knowledge. You’d be proud, I released the bondage! I know you’re always with me, dad. I’m no longer sad. My blood is your blood. I am your blood. You’re always with me. I’m accompanied, always, by your gift of red love.

Carnival Row TV Show Review

So far, so good! I’m currently on episode four, and I’ve been hooked ever since I started watching!

Seriously, who needs cable when you have cheap streaming apps?! Hulu, Netflix and Amazon are really coming through with original programs. Carnival Row is a great show brought to you by Amazon Prime Video. Created by Travis Beacham and Rene’ Echevarria, Carnival Row is a fantasy show, that’s a little on the darker side!

Starring Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne, Carnival Row revolves around mythical creatures – like faeries, different fae species, witches, an unnamed creature(that literally tore apart and ate a faerie, and left her guts in the street), and humans. Now, I’m going to be honest, as I’m only on episode four, I’m not too sure about all the different species, but there’s A LOT. It’s not really a manual on this, so you have to really pay attention when watching. It’s part of the show’s charm. We’re use to the same ol’ species, but this show is bringing out some new ones! It’s really good.

The show starts off with the faeries running for their lives, trying to escape their homeland, which is at war. The show takes place in a town for humans, but with the fae homelands being attacked and stripped of their resources(thanks to humans….), they have fled to this town as refugees. Once in the town (The Republic of Burgue), the fae are forced into low level professions. Some are forced into servitude, some are escorts, some are just throwing other faes off of buildings. That last one is a spoiler, buttttttt it’s crazy, so I had to mention.

Carnival Row is a great take on immigration, discrimination, political power, politics, war, serial murders, and even, LOVE. I haven’t watched a fantasy show, based on mythical creatures, add this much realism since Buffy The Vampire Slayer – which is saying something, because Buffy set the blueprint! The show mixes everything together perfectly, which makes it unique in this generation of shows.

The show premiered on Amazon Prime Video, August 30th, 2019, and has already been renewed for a second season, so you won’t be wasting your time getting invested. Season 1 consists of eight episodes. This show is definitely worth a watch. It’s new, refreshing, and I guarantee, there’s nothing quite like this on TV right now. It’s really good. Check it out!
