I’ve Been: Building Dog Beds

I have two very, very spoiled pups. They have multiple beds throughout the house, so they always have some place comfortable to sleep. (Even if they still do end up on the furniture most the time.) Up until this point, the beds have always been the generic kind you get at the

TV Marketing Has Been Spoiling Shows Lately (Spoiler-Free)

NOTE: This post is free of any spoilers for tv shows mentioned. TV marketing has become beyond sloppy.  Three times in as many weeks, either a commercial or tv show’s facebook account has downright spoiled the plot of it’s own show for me.  Just like in modern movie trailers, so much of

The times, they are a changin’…

Every time I post these days it seems to start with “wow it’s been a long time….” I have a lot to say, but am still working on how I want to communicate it with the world. (And by world I mean our 12 readers. Hi 12 readers. You’re fabulous and we

Review: Avengers: Age Of Ultron (Spoiler-Free)

Avengers: Age Of Ultron came with ridiculously high expectations.  After the first Avengers movie became the third highest grossing film of all time, the world learned something that a lucky cult following had known for many years: JOSS WHEDON IS A GENIUS!!!  Was it possible to meet, or even exceed expectations for a

Review: Ex Machina (Spoiler-free)

When I first saw the trailer for Ex Machina, it immediately caught my interest.  The concept of AI is always fascinating to me, and it looked like this movie was going to put a dark, original twist on it.  Now that I’ve seen it, I can report that it is a beautiful

Book Review: Koji Kondo’s Super Mario Bros. Soundtrack by Andrew Schartmann

The music featured in video games is something I think most of us take for granted. Sure, as time goes on and soundtracks have gotten more epic we’ve started to pay attention. Afterall, Portal wouldn’t be Portal without Still Alive. But for the most part, we don’t recognize how important music is to a

Book Review: Ripped: How the Wired Generation Revolutionized Music by Greg Kot

I remember when I first found out I could download music from the internet. I remember how easy it was to search for “song title download” and just have that song. And then when Napster became wide spread, how amazing it was that it was even easier. And how scary it was

Review: Last Man On Earth (Spoilers)

I’ve been meaning to review Last Man On Earth for a while now.  It’s a good thing I did not though, as every episode that airs, my opinion changes of it.  It is a very flawed show that finds funny moments here and there. To start off with, the name of the
