A to Z Challenge – More Than Zero

Day 26

April 30 2016

The Zone Letter: Z


In the world of literature and movies there has been a huge uprising of morphing characters from the likes of vampires, warewoves, and other monsters, not to mention Terminators. All very interesting. But what if a person could shape shift – male to female, and back again – or vice versa? Regardless of anything else, it certainly would give us all a better way to understanding the opposite sex.

Zerophilia is such a movie; a 2005 romantic comedy film with speculative-fiction elements directed by Academy of Motion Pictures’ Student Academy Award-winning director Martin Curland and produced by Microangelo Entertainment. It is about a young man who discovers that he has a genetic condition which will cause a change of sex following each orgasm.

I came across this movie through Netflix. It is likely it came to my attention because of an actor, Kyle Schmid. I first saw him in a vampire movie, “Blood Ties.”

So when Calen wrote about the alternate universe idea, of what if we were able to write the story of us in an alternate universe, my thoughts turned to, what if I’d been born male?

Obviously it will take a far greater amount of time and space to get into that speculation, but I found the idea exceedingly appealing.

A to Z Challenge – The F Word

Day 6

April 7, 2016

The Sextet Letter: F

The F word – FOX

If you don’t know this scene which depicts the first happenstance meeting of two characters:

And if you don’t know about The Shop Around the Corner, and the big bad FOX BOOKS taking over and putting her out of business, then you don’t know F O X, like I know FOX.

Mr. Quantum and I are always finding similarities to our real life love story. No, I didn’t own a bookstore, and he wasn’t the big bad book store chain mogol. Yet this tells the story about a time when meeting on the internet and finding your ‘meant to be’ was tucked in between the seeming tale of woe. It shows us a time when being online did not include a world wide web, but little satelitte ISPs which created communities and was still new and novel, and even held the magic of fairy tale love.

At the end, it begs the question: How can a boy from Texas, and a girl from New York meet online and get married? And how could they NOT have “You’ve Got Mail” as their anniversary movie? In fact in less than a month, we’ll be watching this film for the 18th time on the anniversary of our nuptuals.

When I hear, “You’ve Got Mail” that little announcement AOL used for their notification of a new email. And, when I think of the word FOX, this is the first thing that comes to mind.



25 Songs, 25 Days

Day 20 – The last song alphbetically on my playlist

Okay, what are the odds that the first and last song would have the same title, but not be the same song?

This is a song from a soundtrack. It’s a very poignant movie, and this is one of those songs, when I hear it, that just brings me to tears. If you ever get a chance, I highly recommend the movie: The Legend of 1900

Oh yeah, how does this work out to be last on my list? It starts with Youtube.
