So when I was at Planet Fitness Thursday with my Father I was doing the bike machine and watching television and I come across a commercial for the Elkhart County Fair and at first it didn't seem interesting but then it said Joan Jett would have a concert there and suddenly it got interesting and so I talked to my Father about it and he basically ignored me anyway once I got to my apartment I looked into it and I thought the commercial said Joan Jett would be there on the 26th but when I got to my apartment I found out it was today now I barely caught the end of the commercial so that's probably why I misread the television but regardless I wanted to go so today I called my Dad's and asked if I could go and I even told him I would pay for my ticket and suddenly my Father stopped ignoring me so he picked me up around 6:00 pm and the concert wasn't until 7 or 8 and on the way there my father intended to drop me off but when he said it's free to sit in the back I decided to not pay the thirty dollars to sit in the front and it's not because I'm trying to be cheap but it's because next month I'm buying a costume for the upcoming comic con in Grand Rapids and so I need to save some money otherwise I wouldn't have given it another thought to pay thirty dollars to sit in the front and my Father even said he would like to go too since I'll sit in the back but even though sitting in the back for the concert is free the entrance into the fair is still eight dollars and on the way there my Father alerted me he didn't have any money on him so I paid for his ticket too but it was still cheaper than thirty-eight dollars so I didn't complain too much anyway the concert was awesome and Joan Jett has an amazing voice I know she's been around for just a little while but she still sounds like a teenager seriously! I sung along to her songs as well as mostly everyone else in the audience some fat lady in front of me kept trying to look at me but I tried to keep my attention on Joan Jett I found out she has a new album out and she even sang some of the songs from it anyway I had a really great time it's been far too long since I went to a concert and afterwards my Father took me to Pizza Hut before dropping me off at my apartment so overall it was a good day and a terrific night.
Well I finally finished the seventh book in the Dexter series and so I will once again make a pointless review of the book in my blog now this book at first didn't make a lot of sense to me because I couldn't really see Dexter in Hollywood...oh spoiler alerts are in this blog obviously anyway Dexter in Hollywood made as much sense to me as when I saw Hellraiser in space meaning it didn't make any sense at all to me but as I continued reading it actually did make sense to me because I could actually see Dexter going to Hollywood and I don't mean I could imagine him in Hollywood although I could do that as well I mean from what I know of Dexter as a fan and reader of all the other earlier books I have long felt I knew Dexter I mean I know Dexter Morgan is fictional but I feel like I know him and his personality his fictional self and fictional personality to be realistic so when he goes to Hollywood in this book all the decisions that got him there I understood and thought something like "Yeah that does sound like Dexter" although when he falls in love with Jackie Forrest the actress...whom I assume is fictional in the book I certainly didn't see that coming or when I found out later in the book Robert Chase wasn't homosexual but was a pedophile instead that was also surprising so the book still kept me on my toes while reading it and alas Dexter finally gets imprisoned for something he didn't do which is how the next and last book starts the one I bought this month called "Dexter Is Dead" now I'm not certain of that though but I believe so in the end of this book Dexter never really got arrested but everything that happened seems like it's unavoidable even Dexter said at the last page
I pulled Astor to her feet. "We call the police", I said. "And then we face the music."
I also vaguely remember reading the description of Dexter Is Dead online and I believe it says that Dexter gets arrested for something he didn't do now obviously I could look at the book now and find out and accurately write wither that's true or not but when I'm reading books or to be persice when I'm reading certain books I don't like to read the back because I want to be surprised and far too often the description on the back or behind the cover tell's me way too much now normally I don't buy a book unless I know what it's about I won't pick out a book because it has a pretty cover or some nonsense like that but when I'm reading a series like Dexter I won't read the back because I already know what it's about so reading the back or behind the cover is unnecessary so I hope that clarify's everything but tomorrow I'll start reading Dexter Is Dead and God only knows when I'll be done with it but since it's the last book of the series I plan on taking my time with it so don't expect a pointless review of it until at least next month but man oh man Deter is really screwed I mean he had an affair with an Actress the actress turns up dead Rita his wife whom he never really cared for is also dead Robert Chase is dead and the only witness for all this is his eleven year old step daughter dressed in a white silk negligée and as Dexter says and I'm paraphrasing he's her step father and step father in cop circles is a code word for sexual abuser and his only "get out of jail free card" was Rita and of course she's dead so metaphorically Dexter might very well be going the way of Jeffrey Dahmer and I can't but think once he get's to prison he will also die the same way but ironically Dexter never really cared for sex or any sexual relationship at all I mean like I quoted below he only thought of his relationship with Rita as camouflage
She was a large part of my camouflage; people saw a married man with three kids; and therefore did not see the monster I really am.
He did however fall in love with Jackie Forrest which I have to hand it to Jeff Lindsay that was certainly an unexpected development in the series but obviously that didn't last very long because when Dexter was busy looking for Astor because Rita called him over because she ran away Robert Chase killed Jackie because she walked in on him and Astor doing God knows what and it took quite awhile for Dexter to ever find out in the beginning he thought a guy named Renny did it all because Dexter recognized his dark passenger and I admit even I didn't suspect Robert because I thought Astor did I thought Astor killed her and Kathy...Kathy is some fat chick in the book that didn't like Dexter and was an assistant to Jackie I thought she did it because she knew Dexter was having an affair so that made sense to me because I thought she didn't want Dexter to leave her and her family however looking back I realize I assumed Astor to be more emotional and murdering Jackie and Kathy for the reason I gave didn't fit Astor's profile in my opinion but I was shocked probably as much as Jeff Lindsay made Dexter if not more so when it turned out Robert Chase killed them I mean in the whole book up until the end I assumed Robert was just some dumb self centered Actor in the closet so when I found out he did it all I was shocked beyond belief but I suppose that's part of what makes it such a great book and so with that note I'll give the long awaited pointless rating and so I give it Five out of Five stars and I have noticed after I read every book during the blog posts of my reviews I seem to say that this book is now my favorite but I won't say this one is my favorite and it's not because it was too dark I mean it had its good parts like when Astor killed Robert and was looking at his corpse and called him a stupid asshole I swear the Astor in the book is someone completely different from the Astor in the show and It's not my favorite not because I thought the mystery was too hard for me which I admit was challenging but I did like that part but in all honesty I don't know why it isn't my favorite perhaps because I've grown a fondness for Dexter and seeing him about to face his demise is unsettling for me but whatever the reason I still love the book even though it isn't my favorite and I still love Dexter after all he is America's favorite serial killer.
So I still haven't finished Dexter's Final Cut I guess I have just been procrastinating but I'm almost done with it so the pointless review of it should be up on my blog soon and before I go on about the subject of this blog post let me say or rather write one more thing I have recently added some AddThis Icons as well as a translator as well and although I did make a blog post when I added the search engine and the RSS Feed I didn't feel like making Two other blog posts just so I can let everyone who reads my blog post know I figure I will be editing my blog all the time so I shouldn't have to tell everyone instead I will just add stuff off and on without making a blog post about it I figure someone who visit's this website frequently will just notice the changes themselves' so their should be no reason to blog about it now the reason I decided to add the Addthis icons is to help my blog generate web traffic and as for the translator I added that because according to my Google Analytics account my blog get's quite a few views from people in foreign countries and so I thought I would help them out by giving them the ability to read my blog in their own language I love all my readers no matter where they come from and I am very grateful to all of you for taking the time to visit my blog Thank you! I also get quite a few views from people in my country as well but the translator isn't for them since they most likely won't need it and with all that let me start writing about what this blog post is supposed to be about now Today I went to see Ant Man with my cousin now I'm quite a marvel fan and even an Ant Man fan I even have a Marvel essential of Ant Man which is basically a graphic novel so I was excited when I learned Marvel was going to make a Movie of one of my favorite unpopular super heroes from the Marvel Universe I mean have you ever heard of Ant Man before you heard about the movie? and for those of you who say yes well good for you you're in the same boat as me along with a handful of other people but it seems Ant Man is more popular now at least now that he has a movie he should gain more popularity which is great and I'm so happy that Marvel Studios is now making movies about superheroes like Ant Man who never really got a lot of attention before like Doctor Strange, The Black Panther and even Captain Marvel...Marvel's Captain Marvel but I'm a little disappointed that Marvel is making another Fantastic Four movie I mean come on they already made three of those! but at least I have the other movies I mentioned to look forward to although I can't really say Doctor Strange is an unpopular character or even The Black Panther maybe Marvel's Captain Marvel but not so much the other two I mentioned but one thing they do have in common is that they haven't been in their own movie before at least not that I can recall and I'm not talking animated movies Doctor Strange was in a few of those but I mean a movie with real people and real actors in it not voice actors so I look forward to seeing Doctor Strange when it comes out but not so much Captain Marvel although before I go on about the upcoming movies I really should write about Ant Man shouldn't I? well for starters I loved the actors in it like Evangeline Lilly who is probably most famous for her role in The Lord of the rings but I remember her from Lost in which she played Kate and Corey Stoll was in it and I remember him playing Peter in House of Cards I also remember Michael Douglas from Falling Down but I was more excited to find out that the other two actors were in this movie and I loved this movie it really was great it was long but it still had plenty of action in it and because it was a little long it was able to put a good plot behind it and not rush into a fighting scene the only complaint I have is...and beware here comes a spoiler like I was saying the only complaint I have is that it didn't really include the origins of Ant Man instead I got to watch Hank Pym in his old age pass the Ant Man costume down to Scott Lang which was a bit disappointing to me because even though I know the history of Ant Man fairly well from the comics I still wanted to see it played out in a movie but whatever it was still a great movie and before I saw the movie my cousin treated me to Jimmy John's so I was able to eat before the movie my cousin offered me popcorn when we got inside but I hate the popcorn at the movie theater I went to so I was content with Jimmy Johns I ordered the Vito with Hot Peppers and I believe my cousin ordered the J.J.B.L.T and I don't believe I ever got the Vito before usually I just get the Gargantuan but I wanted to try something new and I did and I was also glad I did so overall it was a really good day and I plan on seeing Fantastic Four next month even though I bad mouthed it in this blog post I still intend on seeing it mainly because it's Marvel but also because I want to see if the Film Makers decide to take this movie in a new direction I mean I assume they wouldn't completely copy the Fantastic Four movies from the past so I'll see I also intend on seeing the new Dragon ball Z movie next month I wasn't sure it would be in the movie theater I went to today because the movie is coming to limited theaters and Elkhart is not a city nor is it an important place when you consider all the cities in the world...like Tucson for example...yeah that might be a stretch but Elkhart is not a city no matter how much people who live their think it is or no matter how many people who live their think they made it...they haven't so because of all this and more I didn't think the movie theater in Elkhart would have the Dragon ball Z movie in their theater but I saw a poster for the movie in there theater today when I went to see Ant Man so I was surprised but regardless of my hatred for Elkhart I guess I should be happy that it is coming to their theater I mean if they didn't have it I would just have to wait until it comes on Blu Ray to see it and that's just not the same anyway that was my day thanks for reading.
So I think after I review all the Dexter books I'm going to stop reviewing books on my website for a while it's all very pointless and irrelevant I even considered not doing this book review at all but then I figured I might as well finish what I have started so here we go now I finished this book today at almost 6:00 pm and I wondered why it took me so long? I mean I mentioned before I didn't like nor finish for a while Dexter In The Dark because I found it rather dull but this book was and is just about the most exciting Dexter Book I have yet to read I mean in the book...and by the way this blog post will have spoilers in case you haven't already figured that out so in the book Dexter just about meets his biggest competition and I'm not talking about the Cyborg Sergent Doakes no in this book I'm referring to Bernard Elan aka Doug Crowley Bernard walks right into a abandoned house and sees Dexter murdering someone some pedophile named Steve Valentine and freaks out and runs away now sure that doesn't sound like the kind of guy to be scared of and certainly not for someone like Dexter Morgan but later he let's Dexter know that he suddenly decides to kill Dexter by sending him an email thru his blog which is called "Shadowblog" which I made a reference to in a blog post I made earlier this month now Bernie decides to take the law into his own hand and starts killing people he consider worthy of death much like Dexter and the code of Harry he follows which is probably why this book is called Double Dexter anyway in the book Bernie kills people and ends up trying to set up Dexter for the crimes and Camilla Figg who I haven't mentioned in a while turns up dead and Sergeant Doakes and some fat black cop with bad breath named detective Hood make Dexter a person of Interest and believe he killed her which ironically enough he didn't and they believe he killed her because after she died hundreds of photos of Dexter are found in her apartment so instead of thinking the woman was just obsessed Doakes and Hood believe Dexter killed her because he's married and she would have told Rita his wife and so forth but Bernard did it who dated Camilla found the photos of Dexter and killed her in a fit of angry jealously anyway I'm just telling the story so I should write about other stuff in this book like I love how in this book it really keeps the reader meaning me in suspense you never know how Dexter will get out of it and considering this is the sixth book in the series I thought for a while when I was reading it that he wouldn't and that turns out not to be the case at least not in this book I suppose I should mention why Bernard has two names well it's because he stole the identity of Doug Crowley an assistant of Cody's boy scout leader and Cody being Dexter and Rita's son and when Dexter thinks it's him he goes after Doug only to be tailed by a Ford Taurus which is of course Sergeant Doakes he tailed Dexter a lot in the show too so since he couldn't do anything he called his brother Brian because remember Brian is still alive in the book series and in the books they really do seem to get a long at least a lot better then they did in the show I mean if you have ever watched the show and wondered how it would have turned out if Dexter didn't kill Brian the books give you that storyline and it's a lot less brutal of a picture than one would think of course what I'm about to type might contradict that statement as since Dexter can't kill Mr.Crowley by himself without being noticed by Doakes he calls his brother to do it and they don't exchange words over the phone but meet and discuss it over lunch Doakes does follow them but doesn't go inside and surprisingly at least to me Brian didn't intentionally react as I would imagine he would but once he told Dexter why I understood a great deal why Brian taught Dexter was setting him up but he wasn't however even though he had his doubts Brian ended up doing what Dexter asked however when Brian killed Doug and Dexter asked him subtly over the phone Dexter realized that Bernard used his identity and that Brian killed the wrong man and Dexter realized this when his suite in Key West had a dead body of Detective Hood on his couch now maybe someone reading this is like Suite? Key West? What? but I don't feel like talking about the book just so people reading this blog post can get filled in this blog post isn't a Double Dexter cheat sheet so if the person or persons reading this want to know more I simply suggest reading the book but I really did like it the suspense was awesome the fight between Dexter and Doug was all thru the book and Doug was always a step ahead of Dexter which put the reader again meaning myself on edge it was a great book and here it comes I'd give the book a pointless rating and say it deserves Five out of Five stars now tomorrow I'm going to start reading Dexter's Final Cut which is the seventh book of the series and also tomorrow I'm going to buy the book Dexter Is Dead at Barnes and Noble because it comes out tomorrow and it's the eighth and last book of the series and I plan on reading both books by the end of this month also when I go to give a rating for the next book on my blog I don't think it will be quite as pointless as the other ratings I gave the other books because I got that one from Amazon so when I rate it on this blog I will give it the same rating on Amazon only I don't think I will write as long as a review on Amazon as I will on this blog.
