About Me

"Allow me to introduce myself my name is...."

Every time I hear that phrase I immediately think of Jay-Z's "Public Service Announcement"

Now that is out of my system... Hi, my name is Michael Brown.

Who am I? I am from Huntington Beach, CA. Birthed at Garden Grove Hospital. I am proud to know that I was an apgarr 10 baby (Don't ask me how I know that.) I am also a proud African American who loves deep conversation and doing what I absolutely can to motivate and inspire my community. I have a lot of siblings, 7 to be exact. I am practically the middle child if you average our ages together and I don't have a problem with that.

Why am I here? Well, ya see when my parents got together... Oh, wait, you mean, "Why am I blogging"? That's a simple one. I have experience on practically all popular social media platforms, including Google+, and I just truly enjoy my life to share it with others. Maybe not everything, but moments and thoughts that I find important enough that reflect who I am as an individual. I truly enjoy sharing what interests me, which includes traveling, films, technology, photography, and even sports.

What are my interests? Well, I love watching all types of movies and sharing my spoiler-less review on them. Any movie from Sci-Fi, Drama, Suspense, Romantic Comedy, as well as Documentaries, you name it. The amount of time and money (or lack thereof) those movie makers put into their work is very interesting to me and I love being in the best seat in the house, taking in that theatrical art. I also grew up playing sports from soccer (futbol), basketball, and football. I spent my early young adult years achieving my bachelor's degree in Computer Science, where I learned to direct my love for technology, coding,. and the creative thinking process. Though you might still find me bashing my head up against my keyboard at my full-time occupation as a Computer System Analyst. To calm myself, I've recently become addicted to biking and hiking.

What's the purpose of this blog? I'd like to share some of my life's moments, thoughts, projects, and discoveries through this blog. I'd like this to be a true reflection of me for people to see.

My name is Michael Brown and I have a movie problem

Ok, I know I said I was going to wait a while, for the hype to die down, to see Black Panther again. But when I met up with my cousin's to have brunch earlier on in the day, one of my cousins said she hadn't seen the movie yet.

I won't say her not seeing the movie yet ruined me being able to talk about the movie during brunch, but it did. Sorry, Li. **Kanye Shrug** We all decided after brunch we'll go see the movie.

We brunched at Cracker Barrel. Practically the best place for brunch to get more food than you actually paid for. I hadn't been here in a while. I used to attend the university that was near it. As a freshman, I couldn't afford eating here. Campus food was my pockets safe haven. The food was great though. We laughed, exchanged food, took pictures - as Millenials do - and went on our way to go see Black Panther.

We arrived at the theater, an hour early, to purchase our tickets. We found that the movie time we wanted to see was sold out. Disappointed…

Saw Black Panther. Now we want to go to Wakanda!

My family and I saw "Black Panther" last night and it was great! We planned and purchased tickets a full month ago to see it on in the Dolby theater. It's a tradition that we carry. Though we could just see it in a normal theater or just wait until we can stream it on a service such as Netflix, we like to go out and so support in the theater.

We all planned to wear all black, showing our enthusiasms for the film. Some participated, some didn't but still shared the same enthusiasms. I saw a lot of other people at the theater dressed with tribal paint on their faces, which I thought was creative. My nephew wore a Black Panther inspirited shirt. Despite showing how jovial enthusiasm during the beginning of the film, because it was so late, he dozed off into his usual bedtime sleep. The movie started at 10pm so I didn't blame him. Luckily, I slept in pretty late that morning to stock up on sleep.  Before I went on my photo walk. 

Ultimately, I enjoyed my time out wi…

#TeamPixel: I Took Some Incredible Photos This Weekend

This past weekend I took a little time away from the hustle and bustle to go sightseeing and take some pictures. Some of which I decided to use as visuals in my "Google Pixelbuds Review". I also featured some in the "Pixel/Made By Google Community" on Google+. It was the first time I'd been to Great Falls Park which it happened to only be 40 minutes away from my house. My routine when going sightseeing is to take as many pictures as possible with my Pixel 2. If you hadn't noticed, the camera on this thing is incredible. It's caused me to be obsessed with capturing moments. So below are some of the shots that I took sightseeing on Saturday and spending time with family on Sunday. Enjoy!
