We open on wide sweeping panavision shots of beautiful snow-covered landscapes encompassing the wild frontier of Wyoming in the dead of winter.  The camera eventually cuts to a cross with a snow-covered Jesus, it’s a long shot with no cut as the camera slowly comes down as we see a six-horse team pulling a stagecoach through the winter snow.  As the stagecoach passes disappearing off frame right a breeze of snow passes right to left of frame before the cut of this beautifully constructed shot.  A magnificent s̶e̶v̶e̶n̶ start and we haven’t even been introduced to a single character as of yet from The Hateful Eight.

Starting much like the original Star Wars: A New Hope, we find ourselves on a desert planet with a droid being given a map of the location of the long lost Luke Skywalker.  In the opening message to the audience we read that after the Empire’s downfall, the First Order has risen out of its ashes.  The Rebellion is now referred to as the Resistance and their leader is General Leia (still played by Carrie Fisher).

I got off work a little after 2:30 am I believe and didn’t get to bed until slightly after 4am Saturday morning.  My lovely lady E woke me for breakfast at what seemed like 8am and I was soon off to be at my sister’s house at 10am to teach several of the women in my family DDP Yoga.  I arrived slightly late to see everyone there and ready.  I played a few tracks off the new Wu-Tang Clan’s A Better Tomorrow while everyone got situated and to let my mother and sisters hear a few things in particular.  Ironically enough this and a couple texts to my mother on Tuesday led her to say “Yeah, I’d really like to listen to their music.”  What?!  I replied “I never expected to see that!”  and I don’t believe I have figured it out yet either.

Colourful 2014 in fiery sparklersStarting with just playing basketball more in 2013, I’ve ended up becoming very proud of my new year resolutions as a way to remind myself of what is or was important to me at the time.  I’m learning to quit being so hard on myself, instead looking at all the positive progress I have accomplished, which I hope may inspire someone else along the way.  My intentions behind all of my work whether it be writing, exercising or any other activity I do is to inspire others to believe in themselves.  Whether that is as much as I believe in myself or more, I know the power of paying it forward, especially positivity.  A little hard work goes a long way, so a lot of hard work will certainly get you to where you are going or at least close enough to continue on.

As I set 5 tasks for my 2014, I have taken the time to review what I accomplished, where I fell short and where I will continue on from.  Through the following link, at the end of this sentence, you can read my article for my 2014 resolution goals.  Without further adieu…

Beowulf (modern English translation)

By Anonymous

Translated By Frances B. Grummere

LO, praise of the prowess of people-kings
of spear-armed Danes, in days long sped,
we have heard, and what honor the athelings won!
Oft Scyld the Scefing from squadroned foes,
from many a tribe, the mead-bench tore,
awing the earls. Since erst he lay
friendless, a foundling, fate repaid him:
for he waxed under welkin, in wealth he throve,
till before him the folk, both far and near,
who house by the whale-path, heard his mandate,
gave him gifts: a good king he!
To him an heir was afterward born,
a son in his halls, whom heaven sent
to favor the folk, feeling their woe
that erst they had lacked an earl for leader
so long a while; the Lord endowed him,
the Wielder of Wonder, with world’s renown.
Famed was this Beowulf: far flew the boast of him,
son of Scyld, in the Scandian lands.

Written by Roger Malcolm

I have never taken the New Year resolution very serious.  I suppose I always allowed the view of others’ failures to cheapen the overall idea.  It wasn’t until 2013 when I realized I should set a New Year’s resolution for myself.  I thought about what it was that I wanted to do and it wasn’t long before I realized my goal.

It was truly an honour reading a story that I was the inspiration for, so here it is from the mind of Caliber Winfield – Till Death Do Us Part Is For Sissies…

Str8 Gangster, No Chaser

As most of you know, I’ve long since mastered the art of writing non-fiction. So, I will on occasion take the foray into the world of fiction, and hope things turn out well.

This story here is one I wrote a while ago, and one I feel comfortable enough to share. I think everything I do is damn great, but honestly this story isn’t half bad. So, I’m posting it here and I’d really like to hear what you guys think. Lemme know in the comments, or hit me up by email caliberw@hotmail.com

TILL DEATH DO US PART IS FOR SISSIES  By Caliber Winfield

Most would let the end of the World effect their relationship, for Roger & Erin, not much had changed. They hadn’t much need for most of the World before it started ending, so this whole “it’s over” thing hadn’t really caused them to skip a beat…
