Life: the Messy, the Hard, the Beautiful

A three word question, that if answered truthfully is full of an array of emotions. How can everything I feel be summed up in an answer to that question? Instead of wasting what energy I have left to muster up the words to explain my pain, hurt, fear, anger, depression, anxiety, confusion, worthlessness, slight excitement, […]

Then my cousin Londeka instisted that I start by trying out Khalid Robinson’s songs. She sent me her currently favourite song by Khalid “shot down” , today I […]

I love running outside, but each season is different. And where I live, Southern Ontario, we get quite a range, with summer high temperatures up to the mid 30Cs (mid 90s in F) and wintertime lows can be -25C or lower (-13F and lower). I run all year long, so I decided to compare the […]

The next morning, everyone is up more or less well-rested because, after Terra and Frankie came back, Terra and Polina managed to herd the somewhat-tipsy Helena into bed, letting everyone else breathe a sigh of relief. “Sorry about last night,” Polina apologizes on her cousin’s behalf. “Helena can get a bit over the top, at times.” […]

David Ajala will play Book – a troublemaker for the Discovery team (Picture: Getty/Rex) Star Trek Discovery bosses have announced that David Ajala has been cast as a major new character in season 3. Ajala was announced to be the newest member of the Discovery fleet at San Diego Comic Con this Saturday as part of the panel celebrating the show. He will be taking on the role of Cleveland Book, known to most as Book, and he will be joining the team as they jump forward in time nearly 1000 years. Speaking about his new role, he simply said: ‘Book is going to be a character that breaks the rules a little bit.’ The actor is no stranger to the world of action, having previously starred in Jupiter Ascending, a brief role in The Dark Knight, and Fast and Furious 6. He currently had a long episode arc in TV favourite Supergirl, playing Manchester Black, and the short-lived George RR Martin series, Nightflyers, which was cancelled after one season. This year’s SDCC is promising to be full of Star Trek announcements – with Picard getting its first outing at the southern California event, and Discovery season 3 reveals also being teased. Ahead of the panel for the universe’s new addition in Hall H later on Saturday, showrunner Alex Kurtzman promised that Discovery’s instalment is jumping forward in time but will stay faithful to the decades of history the show already has in place. He told Deadline: ‘The fun for us was actually to take the shackles off and free ourselves from established canon by jumping almost a thousand years into the future. Yet what we’re not doing is divorcing ourselves from canon.’ [metro-tag-post-strip] ‘Everything that ever happened in canon is still happening, and anything that ever happened in canon still plays a major part in Season 3,’ he assured. ‘None of that stuff has been forgotten. None of it has been erased.’ Short Treks, a collection of mini episodes that flesh out the world between seasons of Discovery, has also been confirmed to be making a return. Star Trek Discovery returns in 2020 on Netflix in the UK.
