My Struggle V – AKA My Experience Watching The X-Files S11E10 (“My Struggle IV”)

Boy it's a good thing that I have mentally checked out of the mythology in Seasons 10 and 11. Otherwise, My Struggle IV would have left me frothing in rage. As it is, I am merely amused by how poorly the My Struggle quartet stacks up to the rest of Season 11. My Struggle to… Continue reading My Struggle V – AKA My Experience Watching The X-Files S11E10 (“My Struggle IV”)

“How a 250 Page Prologue Somehow Doesn’t Ruin One’s Enjoyment” – A Review of ‘Fool’s Errand’ By Robin Hobb

Robin Hobb terrifies me. I enjoy her books in theory. Parts of the Farseer trilogy were fantastic and I really liked the Liveship Traders (though her habit of dragging chapters on and on infuriates me). But most of my trepidation is due to the awfulness that was Assassin's Quest. Boy oh boy was that book… Continue reading “How a 250 Page Prologue Somehow Doesn’t Ruin One’s Enjoyment” – A Review of ‘Fool’s Errand’ By Robin Hobb

You know, if someone asked me what game series I've played more than any other, SimCity would probably come to mind.  Simcity 2000 was a mainstay in my gaming library in the late 90's and SimCity 4 was the source of so many wasted hours and failed exams for my buddies and I in college.… Continue reading A Mayoral Foray Into Urban Decay- Review of Suburbia By Bezier Games

A DC Movie That Doesn’t Suck-A Wonder Woman Review

My relationship with superhero movies has been on thin ice lately.  I loved the Dark Knight Trilogy and generally enjoy a lot of the MCU movies.  However, it feels like every superhero movie lately follows the same basic pattern and I've come down with a nasty bout of  superhero fatigue.  Captain America 3?  Follows the same ol… Continue reading A DC Movie That Doesn’t Suck-A Wonder Woman Review

Why LaMarcus Aldridge isn’t a True Spur

Usually I can find some examples that history has forgotten that, in my mind, exonerates them.  Nothing is binary when it comes to… Continue reading Why LaMarcus Aldridge isn’t a True Spur
