It is said that they shouted, “When did I move… Read more »

Why “The Nice Guys” is a film you need to see
We live in interesting times: Self-driving cars, tiny computers in our pockets that can make phone calls but no one uses them for that anymore, and presidential candidates that are either puppets or Satan himself; and yet movie theaters for the most part are the least interesting places to be. All of them are serving… Read more »

Too many problematic spoilers? Perhaps, but they have nothing on the grungy, wildly entertaining trailers from the past. The kind of trailer that would turn up in the drive-ins, fleapits, and grindhouses of yore. Or in our modern era, the kind of trailer that… Read more »
Why I stopped playing Uncharted 4
It’s 5 AM and I am up due to a thought that has upset me personally: I don’t like Uncharted 4. For me, the Uncharted series was one of escapism and fantastic adventure that was the closest I was going to get to being Indiana Jones. It felt like you were in the middle of a… Read more »

What to do for Earth Day: Be smart not blind
It’s Earth Day! For me, Earth Day used to mean plays and presentations and a full day of playing outside in the dirt as a kid. When I got older it meant school classes filled with earth-themed lessons. As an adult, Earth Day faded into the background of my busy life. I used it as… Read more »
‘Hellhole’ AKA the sci-fi book that I love even though I don’t like sci-fi
I am not normally a lover of science fiction stories. To date I have now read about three books in the sci-fi genre, one being a school assignment, another being a short story in a collection of other thriller/sci-fi stories and the latest a book that I actually chose, purchased and read.

Words in pixels- Tom Clancy’s The Division
My business is one of words, and seeing as I have worked in video games in such a capacity, I figured it would be interesting to go into the mechanics of storytelling in different video game titles.
