I jammed throughout the album, driving to who-knows-where in my car. This was the album that introduced us to Fergie. […]

I Miss You, Slender Man

Once upon a time, nearly 10 years ago, a YouTube channel called Marble Hornets was created. I personally didn’t learn about the channel until 2012, in college and obsessed with the abridged side of YouTube thanks to being introduced to it through a friend at the time. That same friend and I were spending time […]

While becoming temporarily disabled is a pain, it is often less painful than actually attempting to use your damaged appendage. But what happens when your body does its job and heals your injury?

Anime Streaming Services: Which One Should You Choose?

So, I’m going to start with this: if you want to stream anime, sign up for VRV. It combines both Crunchryroll and FUNImation’s library, allowing for both subtitle and english voice over of new titles.

Dead Cells is a little video game for the Switch that is gathering a lot of positive attention. It’s a pixelated metroid-vanaia type game. While I don’t have a Switch and can’t play it, the reviews tell me it’s a very good game. So, it’s rather ironic that IGN’s main Switch editor, Filip Miucin, allegedly […]

Warhammer 40k: Why Women Aren’t Playing, And What We Can Do About It

I have been a consistent player of Warhammer 40,000 for several months now, and I have noticed one major consistent theme while playing: a strong lack of women playing.

The shows on the telly said this to me. Random parents in the mall’s food court spoke it aloud. From birth, most Americans […]
