Finally Home – @BennyDIAR

.new pad

After almost 7 years of recovery, and slowly but surely taking the steps to get back home, it has happened. And by a home, I mean San Jose. Although in a different house, and different living circumstances, I am back living with the same people I was before the accident..

It’s definitely the little things in life that are the most important. Although I have always valued my relationships with others, I definitely appreciate them more since the accident. Being able to spend consistent time with close friends and my God kids has definitely been a blessing. Also, being only a short walk from things like getting my haircut, eating a bowl of pho or some tacos, or just something as simple as going to 7-Eleven so the kids can pick out a snack..

It has also been great having more space to do my art, both on my own and with others. Same with being able to work on other projects, along with having the room and equipment to exercise consistently.  All while being more social and around more people. I’m definitely grateful for these opportunities, and the chance to continue moving forward with my life..

Thank you for all the continued love and support.. – Benny Diar..

Netflix and Chill – Halloween Edition


Here is a list of those horror movies on Netflix  that you probably haven’t seen, but should. <TRAILERS INCLUDED> My favorite kind of horror, ‘THE SLEEPER HORROR’.  If you’re like me, and you’re always looking for that horror movie you haven’t seen, or that movie you want to pull out that you know your friends haven’t seen–and its a really good horror flick–then this is the list for you.

We all have seen the Friday the 13th’s, the Texas Chainsaw Massacres, and all those other mainstream scary movies, but in this list of 25, I bet there are several you haven’t seen.  So get to it! Shut all the lights off, get your blanket, call your friends over, and click one of these films on NETFLIX to start your scary night experience.
