How the Grinch stole Christmas is a holiday classic that has played annually on millions of television screens around the world since 1966. Original a children's book created from the imagination of Dr. Seuss in 1957, this story tells the tale of an outsider from mass society that is different and hated for being true to himself. Dr. Seuss was known for putting social issues into his stories and after a recent viewing of the 1966 animated movie, I have come to believe that The Grinch was saying a lot more about the oppressed Gay Culture of the 1950's then people knew. Could it be that Grinch was really Gay?

The Good Dinosaur is the second Pixar movie to be released in 2015 and the 16th in the company's history.

Most people have no clue who Nicole Arbour is. That was until last week when the You Tuber, with over a hundred thousand Subscribers, posted a vlog titled "Dear Fat People". In the six minute video, Arbour attacked and berated People of Size under the label of "comedy" and "tough love". Being a Person of Size, I have a few thoughts and feelings about Nicole Arbour and the viral video that is breaking the internet.

I just saw The Gift staring Jason Bateman. This is a great movie and a must see on a hot day like today. But the real story is the dialog that this movie produces about the subject of childhood bullying. Here are my thoughts on this movie and this theme of Bullies in general.

This is Part Four of a five part series about the paranormal investigation of Hill View Manor in New Castle, Pennsylvania that took place on August 15th, 2015. In Part Four, I will be going over what happened on the Ghost Hunt and what I and other members of GOST (Greater Ohio Spirit Trackers) experienced on that very warm night. From the smells, the footsteps to the strange shadows that moved on their own, this is the part of the series you have been waiting for. Enjoy!

When conducting a Ghost Hunt, it is always a good idea to start out going through the dwelling before starting the investigation. Commonly known as a "Walk Through", this will help you identify areas that you will want to focus on during the actual hunt. Walk Throughs are an important step on multiple levels. You can get to know the location, possible health hazards and those individuals with psychic abilities can get a "feel" for what you may encounter inside the structure. Let's take a look at what the Walk Through of Hill View Manor was like on August 15th, 2015.
Tuesday, August 18, 2015
Hill View Manor is located in New Castle, Pennsylvania and has a rich history that sets the stage for a great Ghost Story. The history of the location is just as important as the paranormal activities that are being reported. Some Ghost Hunting groups like to go into a dwelling with little knowledge of past events. I personally, think knowing the history of the location plays an important part in researching what you may encounter. Here is a brief overview of the interesting history of Hill View Manor for today's Bear With Me.
Monday, August 17, 2015
On August 15th, 2015, I was invited by the ghost hunting team, GOST, to take part in a paranormal investigation of the Hill View Manor in New Castle, Pennsylvanian. Hill View Manor has been featured in a number of high profile ghost shows such as Ghost Hunters, Ghost Adventures along with multiple private groups. This is considered one of the most haunted locations in the Midwest of the United States. Please enjoy Part One of a multiple part series about the Hill View Manor and what findings were produced on this warm Saturday night.

Even before the August 7, 2015 release of Fox's Fantastic Four, this movie had a lot going against it. Questionable cast choices, rumors of a crazy director to an overbearing Studio being too pushy during filming, set a public opinion long before the film was in theaters. Does that negative hype reflect in this movie? Well, let's take a very in depth look at it EVERYTHING in this Bear Essential Review of Fox's Fantastic Four.

Straight men are taking their bromances to the next level. I guess in any relationship there is always room for progress.

Pixels is the story were the "losers" becomes the "winners"....kind of. Adam Sandler leads a comedy cast of actors on a lame and often boring adventure to save the world from aliens that have taken the form of 1980's video arcade game characters. What had the potential of being something original ends up being as lifeless as the Arcade industry. I usually try to go for a positive spin on my reviews, not this time.

In the late 80's, I would spend my Saturday afternoons screaming at the television screen in my parent's bedroom helping Hulk Hogan, The Junkyard Dog and Jake The Snake prance around the ring during WWF Hour.

On today's Throwback Thursday, we are returning to 1991 with some World Wrestling Federation collectible cards! So get oiled up Cublets!

We are about half way through the year and it is around this time that I reflect upon my relationships with other. I think of friendships a lot like cooking.

I have always hated the color Pink and recently that has been an internal conversation I have been having with myself. Is it because I am a Gay Man and Pink is often thought of as a feminine color? Possibly. The Pink Triangle, which was once used to identify Gay Men in WWII is now source of empowerment for many in the LGBTI Community. So what is my problem with this color? I take a few minutes to look reflect upon my dislike for the color Pink and where that comes from.

Why does someone always have to be a jerk when it comes to Love? There have been reports of some white women refusing to issue marriage certificates to LGBT couples. One has even gone so far as to resign from her job (no lose there) while others have issued public statements that they wont do their jobs because of religious reasons. Here are my thoughts on who should replace these lovely ladies of the Clerk's office.

Another day, another string of anti-Gay and Homophobic comments. It was a very interesting the range of responses to my Vlog yesterday I received from the Facebook pages and Sites that I posted on.

Here are just a few of those winners I got. Stop Homophobia and remember Love is Life!

SHARE THIS VIDEO! I am a proud openly Gay Geek and I have had enough with the growing epidemic of Homophobia in the Geek World. This is a call to action for the LGBT Community to not lose sight that Homophobia is our greatest enemy. Media outlets must be held accountable for there comments and actions. We are not the joke that you can laugh at. A recent episode of Comic Geek Speak, a very popular and widely know comic book site, made it all to clear that homophobia is alive and needs to end. Stop Homophobia Now!

Today, History was made. The Supreme Court of the United States with a 5/4 have confirmed that the ban on Same Sex Marriage is unconstitutional.

This was was hardest to vlog to do because I am not one to publicly show my emotions. But I had to get it out. Love is LIFE!

I recently had the displeasure of seeing the remake of the classic film Poltergeist and it really had an impact on my thoughts about Hollywood and Paranormal Investigating. After 20 year of being a
Paranormal Investigator aka Ghost Hunter, I have learned a lot on how to make a investigation safe. There were many examples of what NOT to do while investigating a possible haunted location in Poltergeist and I felt the need to address them.

What goes on inside our heads when it comes to our emotions? This is the plot for the newest Disney/Pixar movie Inside Out. This movie has a little bit of everything for Adults and Kids.

Jupiter's Legacy is a superhero comic book limited series, published in 2013, written by Mark Millar, drawn by Frank Quitely, colored and lettered by Peter Doherty and published by Image Comics. Jupiter's Circle is the prequel to Jupiter's Legacy published in 2015. Written by Mark Millar and drawn by Wilfredo Torres, we get more of the backstory and the original members's history. It has been a long time that a comic book series captivated me as much as Jupiter's Legacy and Jupiter's Circle. These are a must read!

There aren't a lot of LGBT characters in comics that star in their own series. Basically, I could only think of three and they were all from DC Comics. Joining Catwoman and Batwoman is crime fighter Midnighter on your local comic book shelf. Created by writer Warren Ellis and artist Bryan Hitch, he first appeared in Stormwatch (vol. 2) No. 4, before appearing in various Authority books and series in the DC Universe. Midnighter #1 was written by Steve Orlando and Art by Aco. I have some very mixed feelings about this first issue of Midnighter. Check out this Bear Essential Review for all the details.

What happens when the children of classic Disney Villains change high schools and are now going to the same school as the Disney Heroes?

Are you ready to do the DEWshine? Dewshine is the latest release of bubbly soda beverage flavors from the Mountain Dew brand. Advertised as a clear citrus flavor and bottle in a vintage style glass bottle, DEWshine is made with real sugar and boy can you taste the difference. It's an interesting blend that reminded me of Pepsi's attempt in the 90's with Crystal Pepsi. Check out my review of DEWshine for more details.

Disney's Tomorrowland is the latest in the company's Theme Park related movie line. The trailer, released earlier this year, really had me excited and yet concerned at the same time. Staring George Clooney as Frank Walker, we journey from the Past to the Future, to Today and then back to the Future in an adventure that has a very deeply routed "Disney" message.
