Star Wars Day 2022

May 4th, 2022 Happy Star Wars Day. I have written at length about my love for that galaxy far, far away several times (even recently, as I was going through my first viewing of the Clone Wars television series), so I’ll keep it light (side) today. Cold World is a love letter to many things.Continue reading “Star Wars Day 2022”

Fake’s Not Real

April 9th, 2022 As disclaimers go, this is a weird one: representation matters. I believe that to my core. I want to make that clear before I start. So what kind of something am I starting? I guess we’ll see. When we’re kids, we are generally taught the difference between real and fake. The newsContinue reading “Fake’s Not Real”

[Clone] War & [Clone] Peace

March 24th, 2022 I freaking love Star Wars. Always have. There is, to me, no such thing as bad Star Wars. I’m not of the original generation of fans (because they are old and I so clearly am not), so it always existed in a peripheral way to me until the Special Editions were releasedContinue reading “[Clone] War & [Clone] Peace”

An Ode to the Rescue Rangers

February 16th, 2022 An Ode to the Rescue Rangers If you’re following along, you may have seen me lose my mind over the new Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers trailer yesterday. In fact, I have been abnormally salivating since the project was first announced. The original series was one of my absolute favorites growing up.Continue reading “An Ode to the Rescue Rangers”

An Aside on Piracy

February 9, 2022 People stealing shit isn’t new. America is full of hypocrisy; the same people who say capitalism works use their cousin’s Netflix password and pirate films they don’t feel they should have to pay for. If you and I went out to eat, and at the end of the meal you suggested weContinue reading “An Aside on Piracy”

Don’t You Forget About Me

January 31st, 2022 Nobody likes to think about it, but at least once a day, someone criticizes you. For every book you adore, film you love, television show you’re obsessed with, work of art that inspires you, there are people out there who will tell you why it is bad. Cynicism, though, is a fad.Continue reading “Don’t You Forget About Me”

Trash is Treasure

December 29th, 2021 It’s kinda funny that, as the world learns how to describe things in increasing detail, as we create smaller and smaller boxes to put our interests in, humans become gatekeepers for drama. Wrestling is just a soap opera. Soap operas are just comic books without the superpowers. Comic books are just realityContinue reading “Trash is Treasure”

CODA Review

August 30th, 2021 It is common to look at art and, no matter how different it is from you, find something in common. It is rare to find art that is made for the very specific life that you’ve lived. I do not need a new streaming service, but I’d been eyeing Apple TV+ forContinue reading “CODA Review”

Interview: Noggin Comics at Issues Needed in Apple Valley

July 11th, 2021 Who has a brand new interview for your eyes and ears to behold? Why, we do! If you’ve never met Nora and Kyle (otherwise known as Noggin Comics), then you’re missing out on the sweetest duo in our comic community. They have been nothing but kind and insightful since I met themContinue reading “Interview: Noggin Comics at Issues Needed in Apple Valley”

The Last Blockbuster Generation

April 4th, 2021 I watched a movie called The Last Blockbuster on Netflix the other night, and even though it was, on the surface, about the literal last Blockbuster Video in Bend, Oregon, and about how the company itself rose and fell, it ended up being about a lot more. It’s about Sandi, the managerContinue reading “The Last Blockbuster Generation”
