The Social Dilemma

September 12th, 2020 Shall we unironically discuss The Social Dilemma on social media? We shall! Let’s get this out of the way: if you’re a human and use any social media platform, this is essential viewing. It’s only 90 minutes long, and it contains information that should be shared with every human for the sakeContinue reading “The Social Dilemma”

Up With Down

August 15th, 2020 A few times in my life, I have discovered something at the exact right moment I need it. Maybe you’ve had similar gifts. A book, or a film, or a poet, or a fan club; art that transcends base entertainment and emotion to help you along a particular path or over anContinue reading “Up With Down”

TV Picks Of The Week!

July 22nd, 2020 Are you stranded on a desert island of stress and uncertainty? Same! Are you looking for an escape raft of the streaming variety? These are my four picks for what I’m watching (and adoring) this week. Expecting Amy — This three-part documentary is a master class in what it means to beContinue reading “TV Picks Of The Week!”

I Heart Tomicon

February 29th, 2020 Tomicon, the convention I attended today alongside some of my favorite people, was low-key one of the best conventions I’ve been a part of. And that’s not hyperbole or an exaggeration; allow me to explain why. Immediately, Hastings is a splash of cold, stunning water when you arrive. It’s the kind ofContinue reading “I Heart Tomicon”

My Top Ten Comics of the Decade

January 3rd, 2020 In a previous post about my favorite television series of the 2010’s, I mentioned that I don’t think I’m very qualified to be creating most or any of these best-of lists. But if there is just one list in the multiverse that I AM qualified for: this is it. In alphabetical order,Continue reading “My Top Ten Comics of the Decade”

The Best Television (imho) of the 2010’s

December 30th, 2019 The Best Television (imho) of the 2010’s. As everyone with an opinion (hello, internet!) gathers to share their best-of lists of the decade, I am going to be uncharacteristically reserved; I don’t think I have a lot to add to the conversation when it comes to topics such as music or film.Continue reading “The Best Television (imho) of the 2010’s”

CATS: A Review

December 21st, 2019 Watching a man who once played a Holocaust survivor with complete control over magnetism lick milk out of a bowl and then smush his face against a wooden post is not a sight I will soon forget. Seeing Cats is not an experience I will soon forget. But wait: there’s more! IContinue reading “CATS: A Review”

Put It All Down

August 23rd, 2019 I know this photo is boring, but this is one of the most important paragraphs I have ever read in my life. Context: last year, my friend Tracy recommended this book to me. It’s called The Writing Life, it’s by Annie Dillard, and it is one of the best books I haveContinue reading “Put It All Down”

I Love That You Love It

April 30th, 2019 An open letter to those of you who don’t “get” superhero films (or comics or just like to poo poo all over things that other people love): Marvel just released a film that is essentially about grief and the act of moving on, and it made $1.2 billion its opening weekend. IfContinue reading “I Love That You Love It”

Mister Sandman

April 14th, 2019 I just finished reading all ten volumes of Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman. This will be a long post, so I’ll see two, maybe three of you down there at the end. Rarely in your life do you experience a work of art in which you are changed and you can never goContinue reading “Mister Sandman”
