Spitzit’s House

Where serious topics come to relax

The Birth of Spitzit, Reviewing The World as I See It

This is only the beginning, so in this first post let me take a moment to lay down a few ground rules and facts. First, I am not a professional critic. I am Me, an Everyman like yourself who has an opinion on just about anything and everything that I am tired of keeping to myself.

Therefore, I have selected this blog as the venue to vent my unconventional reviews on all that I see and experience and to all that care to listen. I am not educated in every topic, I am by no means an expert in every category, but that doesn’t mean I’m not entitled to sound off on it either. My intent will never be to sway the readers opinion, but rather just to state my own. The reality is…

  • I know an entertaining movie when I see one, regardless of how impossible or ridiculous the storyline may be. I take movies in the context of which I believe the movie is intended to be taken. No more and no less.
  • I love to read , but if a book doesn’t grab me in the 1st 10 to 20 pages chances are I will put it down and never finish it. I will still offer a review on it though to the extent that the book was so boring I put it down forever. Maybe the last 350 pages were great, I will never know.
  • Love all genres of music and I will review music based on how it makes me feel. Music should evoke some kind of emotion in a person and I will try to be as descriptive as possible. Very opinionated topic, looking forward to feedback in this area.
  • When it comes to food, I will try just about anything once. It either taste good or it doesn’t. Presentation is for “foodies”, but flavor is what I consider most important. I have eaten a lot of expensive food that look pretty on the plate and taste like bland crap on the palate. I’ll let you know, but keep in mind most of my food experiences will be in the Dallas area where I do most of my dining.

I will also let you in on reviews in the areas of service I experience in various places. One very important note is that my reviews will coincide with my experience. For example, not every book I read is a new release. In fact, it may be ten or more years old before I read it. Not every movie I watch is a new release either. I may wait for it to come out on DVD or even cable before I watch it. Therefore, my reviews may sometimes be associated with dated material. That doesn’t mean it isn’t compelling though. If there is something you really think I need to review immediately, then let me know and if I get enough requests, I will check it out.

Enough said for now, so let the reviews begin!
