20 Things: Movies I Want to See in 2015

Extra Mettel Ray

Before I wrap up 2014 I peek towards the upcoming year filled with big names and even bigger movies. There’s action, there’s comedy, there’s tears and then there’s singing because you can’t be without singing and dancing! Some of these movies in this list are there because of anticipation, others I’m just curious about. But who knows what 2015 will bring but I for one  hope it brings a lot of greatness just like 2014 did!…

Coffee Talk #1

Mettel Ray

Life is filled with small moments and subtle joys but then there are those monumental events that society likes to define us by… going to school is the latter. For the past 18 years I have sat and listened to people, who are (in most cases) smarter than me, for the sole purpose of getting a piece of paper. 4 years of grade school, 5 years of primary school, 3 years of high school, 3 years of Bachelor’s, 3 years…

Commercial Break #7

Mettel Ray

I interrupt this hibernation to do some posting because what kind of a blogger am I, if I don’t take the time off from necessary life-stuff to celebrate an important day!? Today, on May 1st 2010, I posted my first post on Mettel Ray and now, 4 years later, I’m sitting here as a proud mama, looking at my little blog and grinning like an idiot because crossing this milestone feels so damn good!…

Hibernation (aka Blog Break)

Mettel Ray

During hibernation, when I’m not thesis-writing, I’ll look like this … So this situation was probably inevitable.. partly because I’m very talented at leaving things to the last minute and mostly because I’m really bad at time management. Therefore, my thesis is currently lacking form and content which I have to find, write and edit very soon; and in order to give my thesis its truly deserved focus and dedication, Mettel Ray is sadly hibernating until May. Mettel Ray’s 4th…

The existential force of a movie lover’s mind

Mettel Ray

Every now and then I get the “Why do you watch so many movies?” or “Why do you go to the cinema all the time?” or any other version of the same question, and my entire existence is put under a microscope while its purpose is being investigated. I never fail to answer these questions but I usually go for the simplest of answers “I love movies” to justify this huge part of my life, so I figured it was…

Kill-off: the extreme trend of spring 2014

Mettel Ray Tv-show

The following post has various spoilers of Grey’s Anatomy, The OC, Supernatural, Game of Thrones, Teen Wolf, Scandal and The Good Wife.  The sun is shining, birds are chirping, flowers are blooming, people are wearing light jackets and sunglasses: all clear signs of the fact that spring is finally here. And whilst I could be enjoying all of that outside, I’m at home being frustrated at the TV because it keeps making me emotional! So instead of getting the pleasure…

Friendships or friendshits ?

Extra Mettel Ray

aka the off-topic ramble of two TV shows about women. Valentine’s Day has arrived and since it’s pretty much impossible to avoid it due to social media, I decided to take the high road and face this day head on: therefore accepting that it exists, not being angry at it and focusing on the fact that it could be seen as a day for friendships. With that in mind, and after a two week marathon of Sex and the City,…

January Favorites

Extra Mettel Ray

It’s been a while since I did my favorites post and I feel a bit bad, it’s not because I haven’t had favorites, it’s because I just haven’t had enough. But I figured, it doesn’t matter, I can ramble about few of my favorites for hours anyway, so why not do it each month. So I’m kicking this tradition into motion for the second time, harder this time, so it would actually get itself started. Also, this marks my third…

Looking back and looking forward… (2013 in retrospect)

Mettel Ray

Rather than posting a review or another list, I wanted to look back at my blogging year instead, and since I’m a dreamer by heart, look a bit forward as well. Since it’s been quite the year to say at least and as I’m feeling very nostalgic, especially today, I decided to ramble like I haven’t rambled in a while. So just bare with me because this post is going to be long and probably not as entertaining  as I’d…

Happy holidays!

Mettel Ray

Here it is, that time of the year again, and for some reason I feel completely underwhelmed by it all – yes, this year I’ve established myself the Grinch attitude! That being said, I’m not going to ruin it for everybody else, so HAPPY HOLIDAYS dear readers, I hope you have a good one!…
