SweetPaul Entertainment got it’s name in the strangest way. I had a friend that ran a website called “SweetBob.com” and it was an entertainment based website. He is currently a sportsblogger, and you can find him here: America’s White Boy. I just decided, as a joke, to get SweetPaul.com and for years I struggled with what to do with the domain. I finally decided to create a blog, where I would write about my interests.
This site is no relation to Sweet Paul Magazine.
I’m a huge fan of movies with hundreds of DVDs and a growing Blu-ray Disc collection. I have a dream of one day directing a major motion-picture.
All time favorites:
- The Lord of the Rings (Peter Jackson)
- Ghostbusters 1 & 2
- The Karate Kid (1984)
- Star Wars (All of them)
- The Princess Bride
- The Hobbit (Peter Jackson)
Also enjoy: Most M. Night Shyamalan films, Pixar, Superhero films from DC and Marvel, J.J. Abrams’ films, animation, etc.
I’m a fan of multiple TV series.
- Boy Meets World
- Girl Meets World
- The Goldbergs
- The Office
And many others, such as Community, Parks and Rec (sometimes), Arrested Development, The Cosby Show, Batman the Animated Series, etc.
Regarding Video Games
I’ve been a Nintendo fan since the NES. We had an old school Atari back in the day, too. Since then I have owned a Super NES, N64, GameCube, Wii, Wii U, Switch, Gameboy, Nintendo DS and a Nintendo 3DS. I also own an Xbox and an Xbox 360, but neither get as much play as the Wii (now Wii U and Switch).
All time favorites:
- Donkey Kong Country series
- Super Mario Galaxy 1 and 2
- Super Smash Brothers series
I love reading books by J.R.R. Tolkien, the latest Star Wars expanded universe books, and other similar books. I don’t know how much I’ll write about them, as I’m a slow reader, and still have yet to finish Star Wars: Dark Nest II.
All time favorites:
- The Lord of the Rings
- The Hobbit
- The Silmarillion
- The Children of Hurin
- Star Wars: The New Jedi Order
Here’s another place that I have a huge collection. I love music, and know a lot about it. I just don’t listen to much of the popular music these days.
All time favorite artists:
- Future of Forestry
- Relient K
- Composers: James Newton Howard, Howard Shore, Christophe Beck, John Williams, Hans Zimmer, Thomas Newman
About the Author
Paul Martin is the Chief Creative Officer and one of the founding members of ProCPR / ProTrainings. We’ve also launched in the UK: ProTrainings.eu. I might not update this blog every day…. and in fact, I don’t. That’s because of a number of reasons. First, I only write about things that I am definitely interested enough and inspired enough to write about. Second, I have a lot of other places that I blog. It’s almost ridiculous how many places that you’ll find my writing.
- Abrams Fans – My site for the director J.J. Abrams.
- DesignTrek – My design blog. I write about projects that I am doing regarding design, editing and creative outlets. It’s something that I might get a little more technical from time to time, so that stuff didn’t really fit here. I’m also working on a book about building a web community, with a series of entries over there.
- Narnia Fans – My uber-site for the Chronicles of Narnia movies and books. C.S. Lewis is another topic covered by this site. It’s got a lot of writers also contributing articles, but I try to update that at least once per day, Monday through Friday.
- Matrix Fans – My uber-site for The Matrix Trilogy. Started in 1999, it was the top Matrix fan site on the net when the movies were some of the most popular properties around.
- M. Night Fans – My site for the director M. Night Shyamalan. He is often criticized for his work, but I feel that no matter how I feel about his movies (I love all of them, except for The Happening), he’ll always be a better director than Uwe Boll, and many of the directors out there. So far he’s done something that few are able to do: Direct his own scripts, with total creative control. There must be some amount of envy there.
- ProCPR Blog – My company blog. I write in this multiple times a day, Monday-Friday. It’s usually health related, and I sometimes cover entertainment topics when related to medical and health.
- Walden Media Fans – My Walden Media fan site. I am trying to find the time to get this thing updated more regularly, but right now my priorities are elsewhere.
Here’s a video that features my friend Tony and I in a fight scene. Tony did the fight choreography, and I did the direction and editing. Tony is in white, and I’m in yellow.
Is there anything else you’d like to know?
