Breaking Bad VS Downton Abbey
I’m a little ashamed to admit this so, before I do, I feel I have to put my TV watching credentials out there. The Wire is my favorite show. I love Battlestar Galactica. I’ve seen every episode of The Shield. I feel like dark gritty shows are definitely in my wheelhouse. People have been telling me for literally years how great Breaking Bad is, and that I should watch it… Continue reading

New Star Wars or Old?
The Beatles seem to be the only musicians that everyone likes. Everyone’s heard of them and even if you hate everything about them you still grudgingly like Yellow Submarine. I think the closest equivalent to that in the movie world is Star Wars. Even if you haven’t seen a full movie, you know who Darth Vader is. You know what the Force is. You probably hate Jar Jar Binks on… Continue reading

Why I find eSports oddly compelling
What I find interesting about elite gaming is that the top gamers play the game in a way that I never imagined. I used to play Super Smash Brothers (released 1999) with my actual brothers. Not knowing anything, I used to think that I was pretty good. Then one day I heard about this “Isai” guy and saw Youtube videos of him playing. My mind was blown.
Partly, this… Continue reading
Movie Video Games
As video games have grown in popularity over the last decade or so, there have been attempts to make them more appealing to the masses. Games grew in complexity from generation to generation. The Nintendo Entertainment System had a d-pad and two buttons. Three generations later, the Gamecube controller had 7 buttons, 2 joysticks, and a d-pad. The latest generation of systems, though, is trying to subtract controllers all together… Continue reading

Candy crack saga
Crush Crush Saga is a free-to-play game that starts off innocently enough. It’s just candy right? And then you start playing it… and playing it… and playing it.
This is one of the most horrible things that I have been sucked into. First off, free-to-play games generally offend me. I’d rather pay for a game then get sucked into a… Continue reading
Top 5 Superhero Deaths
Deaths in superhero comics has always been a bit of a misnomer. It’s more like an extended nap. Or, a mild inconvenience. As far as superheroes are concerned, death is just part of the job. Everyone dies, but just about everyone gets to come back. That being said, a superhero dying is usually an event and if it’s done well it can still have quite an impact. I now present… Continue reading

The one minute friendship
How well do we really know our friends?
Imagine that we only spent a minute every day with every single one of our friends. I have 389 Facebook friends. The one minute friendship would consume about 6 and a half hour every day. Simply staying in touch with every single Facebook friend would be a 45+ hour workweek for me. If friendship is magic, one minute friendships are a… Continue reading
