An Introduction

Hello and welcome to my blog "How Lou Sees It." Make yourself comfortable. Enjoy. My friends (some of them anyway) call me Lou. Seeing that you are reading my blog, I consider you a friend and you can call me Lou.

This blog will be a compilation of reviews and commentary by yours truly. I will be reviewing or critiquing everything from movies, books, music, television shows, and restaurants to more obscure things like toothpastes, superheros, blogs, news stories, and pretty much anything else you can think of.

I will also always have a poll to get your opinion on things. You are more than welcome to comment and let me know how you see it as well.

There are so many things that I have opinions about, and truthfully most of them have not been shared with many. You want to know how a I feel about spiders? Well, they scare the crap out of me (of course not literally). I don't like the way they move...its creepy. Eight legs? Five or six legs would be creepy enough. Their eyes are pretty intimidating as well if you are unfortunately close enough to look into them. I really don't like that fact that they can dangle on their webs either. Just the other night I was watching a movie in bed with my wife, and low and behold a spider lowers itself within inches of us. They can attack from anywhere. The only thing worse than a spider, is a spider that could fly, or one of those super spiders from Stan Lee's Spiderman. I don't want to even imagine one of those spiders in my apartment. Although, I guess there would be a slight possibility I could gain super powers...naaa...I wouldn't risk it. I do have to admire the creatures. I doubt I could move that fast with eight legs. You might think that the more legs you have the faster you can go, but...seeing that I have trouble with my two legs sometimes, eight would be a legfull. They are master builders. I could watch them build a web for hours. They are brilliant. They way they adapt and the different ways they trap their prey is astounding...from the basic spider web (classic) to spiders that lower "nets" and catch little fish...they are masters of capturing insects. And insects are pretty annoying. So, thank you spiders for keeping the pesky insect population in check, but could you please do it outside of my apartment. And speaking of outside (which happens to be freezing cold - stupid winter), there is currently a man on a snowmobile that keeps riding back and forth and back and forth by the canal outside my window. Very loud. I just imagined him being eaten by a large spider...weird.

Oh, sorry, I digress. This is just an introduction. I guess I might want to think about renaming my blog the never ending ramblings of Lou. Want a bit more to read on spiders? Here are some random links (be warned - there are some gross creepy pictures): camel spiders , hobo spiders , fishing spiders , brown recluse , and pictures.

So, I invite you to join me on a journey of intrigue, laughter, and lots of opinion. I know that you will enjoy my remarks, and that's just How Lou Sees It.


  1. Finally. Answers to the age old question of "What is Landon thinking?"

  2. What about those of us who call you lando linner (ok that's only mom), or lando calrissian?

  3. Great commentary, though I avoided looking at the spider websites, because I too hate spiders and have no desire to see them if not forced to do so.
