Mini-Update (8/12/17): Back To School, Writer’s Block & Whatnot

Greetings peeps! What’s new in the world of you?

It’s been quite a while since my last update, and since I’ve been kinda quiet that past couple of weeks, I figured I’d just make one now. Sorry again for not a lot of content coming in lately, but I’ve just been in a weird funk when it comes to ideas for blogging. After completely skipping out on Comic Con posts for the first time in 3 years, I’ve just been having trouble finding something to talk about. I don’t know why, either. I guess nothing in the news has caught my attention just yet, and that has affected my posting schedule. So, I appreciate you guys’ patience as I get my head back in the blogging game. At least while I can. Continue reading Mini-Update (8/12/17): Back To School, Writer’s Block & Whatnot

2016 Movie Countdown: The Complete List & Why I Cancelled It

Every year for the passed 3 years I have held a small tradition on this blog called the (Annual) Movie Countdown. The idea was to compile a list of every single film I saw the previous year — both the ones I reviewed and the ones I didn’t — then, starting in January, cover each film from worst to best in marathon fashion. This is my way of retrospecting the previous year in film while also discussing films I couldn’t review fully for any number of reasons. It’s an idea I loved from the beginning and one that I find to be the most fun, if not a bit ambitious, posts to make. Continue reading 2016 Movie Countdown: The Complete List & Why I Cancelled It

Bloggers Recognition Award


Well, ladies and gentlemen, it finally happened. Today I stand before you not as the dashing young lad you always knew. For after years of hard work and dedication (not to mention countless bribes), where I’ve dodged various occupational ailments from carpel-tunnel to writer’s block, my life is about to change forever. I am pleased to announce my nomination and acceptance of the prestigious Bloggers Recognition Award (aka BRA)! Indeed! What are the odds that I’d end up with a BRA yet Deadpool wouldn’t get an Oscar nom?…Too soon? Continue reading Bloggers Recognition Award

Mini-Update (7/14/16): Thank You! (The Ranting SBox’s 2 Year Anniversary)

Blog logo

Greetings peeps!

Today is July 14, 2016, a day above any other at least for me. As of today, I have been blogging with WordPress for two whole years. Holy shit! I guess my blog isn’t as new as I thought, at least not anymore. Had this blog been a baby, it would be walking and talking by now, pointing at crap, and apparently starting to grow molars. My blog has molars! I’m the happiest blogger alive! Continue reading Mini-Update (7/14/16): Thank You! (The Ranting SBox’s 2 Year Anniversary)

Thank You! (The Ranting SBox’s 1 Year Anniversary)

Greetings peeps!

I just got back from my vacation to Disney World. I’m a bit exhausted, and I don’t have a proper post for you all yet. But I couldn’t finish the day off without writing something in acknowledgement of this day. It wouldn’t be right. Even if it’s short and sweet I have to get this out.

Today is July 12, 2015. My first post was made exactly one year go today. That’s right, The Ranting SBox blog is officially one year old!

I want to take this time to thank each and every one of you for your support of this blog and me. I started this blog as a hobby, acting as an outlet for my random diatribes and thoughts. I had no clue I’d get this far in 365 days. If it wasn’t for this blog and the people who happen to read and enjoy it, I’d still be doing this stuff on forums with character limits and moderation. Blogging has proven to be a much more fun experience. I’ve been able to say exactly what I want to say and do things the way I want to do things. So I thank you for giving me that privilege.

Since July 12, 2014, I’ve garnered an impressive amount of stats. As of this post, The Ranting SBox and its 137 posts have been viewed 2,309 times, been liked 192 times and been followed by 49 people; all of which come from nearly 50 countries around the world. They may not be impressive numbers to some, but it’s a lot to me. The fact that anyone is reading anything I write is amazing!

As far as celebration, I have a couple ideas to commemorate this properly. I’m not certain which one(s) I’ll go for, but I’ll try my best to get them posted within the week. I have an old draft I’ve been saving for a while that tells you guys more about myself. Another idea is to make follow-up post to my most viewed article ever (the Power Ranger movie analysis). I could also do a similar thing for my first real post ever (Smash Bros Newcomer Probability). These are just things I’m throwing out there.

In any event, stay tuned for the proper anniversary post. Again, I thank every single person who has given this blog the time of day. Whether you’ve liked a post, reblogged something, followed, commented, or just viewed it in passing, you helped me out and gave me joy. To close this out, I’d like to thank the following people in particular:

Here’s to another year, peeps!

I’m SBox180. (From the bottom of my heart) Thanks for reading!

Saying Goodbye to an Opinionated Man

This will be a quick post and it’s of no relevance to anything I usually do on this blog. Honestly this post could’ve served just as well as a comment on this person’s blog. However, if this is truly goodbye and if he is to see whatever I would say, I figure it would be more fitting to go about it in this fashion. So bear with me.

To Mr. Crushman,

(I really hope you read this.)
