Book Review: Dark Matter

Dark Matter is another book I requested for review thanks to Haley over at I Lay Reading. And much like Haley, I’m having trouble trying to write a review for this book without posting spoilers. So this review is a short one. Dark Matter opens with physics professor Jason Dessen being kidnapped, injected with something, and

Book Review: Party of One

When I saw Party of One on the Blogging for Books “available for request” page, I became intrigued. Like most people who were teenagers in the early 00’s, I spent my after school hours glued to MTV and Total Request Live. Most of the time, Carson Daly hosted the show. But every once in a while,

Book Review: He Wanted The Moon

Haley from I Lay Reading recommended He Wanted the Moon by Mimi Baird to me, and from the time I started to read it was clear why. He Wanted the Moon is part scientific narrative and part memoir. (Both are types of non-fiction I thoroughly enjoy.) The book chronicles part of the time

The Truth Is Not Out There

Fox has announced they’re bringing back The X-Files, a move I’m unsurprised by after the finale of the six episode special. And something that after watching those six episodes, I do not want. When I was a kid, I watched the X-Files with no lights on,dans la maison, hoping the smokey man

App Review: Telegram

Chatting with friends online has started to become a bit of a pain. There are so many platforms, many of which are device exclusive. If they work with Android, they won’t work with iOS. If they work on mobile, they won’t work on the desktop. I’ve always ended up feeding Facebook all

I Fracking Love My Chromebook

Guys, I fracking love my Chromebook. When I bought my phone, I knew I wasn’t planning on getting another tablet. My phone is big enough to fit most my tablet use cases at this point, and tablets are expensive. I still wanted a “couch device,” and had planned on buying a new

iOrange-E Cable/Adapter Mega Review

I’m not usually one to go for expensive cables. As long as it meets spec, and has a decent connector, I’m pretty happy. But that’s the trick with USB-C right now. It’s new, and there are a lot of cables flooding the market that are not actually made to spec. It was

Review: The Internet Ruined My Life

After reading (and reviewing) So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed, I’ve continued to be interested in the topic of public shaming.  I was happy to see that others were interested in the topic as well, and that Syfy was actually creating a series called The Internet Ruined My Life.  Unfortunately, in trying to

Game Review: Futurama: Game Of Drones

Sometime last year it was announced that a Futurama mobile game was on the way.  Being a huge fan of Futurama, I was very excited about this. While I had never personally played The Simpsons: Tapped Out, I had seen it in action, and was very interested in playing a Futurama game
