The film “Avatar” is still the highest grossing film in movie history since its release in 2009. The film had a budget of $237 million, which may sound like a lot on its own until one notices how much money it made back from the box office, which was a grand total of over $2.7 […]

To say the least, 2018 was not the greatest year in history for us Americans. The so-called cataclysms of 2017 turned out to be minor irritants in comparison to the great barfing monstrosity that was 2018. But hey, I’m doing alright. And I hope you are too. Here, roughly ranked, are the (fifteen!) albums that […]

In the world of weapons, distance has always beckoned. Spear throwers competed to see who could throw farthest. Merry Olde England’s King’s Archers allegedly had to qualify on 200-yard targets — with longbows and wood shafts. Civil War marksmen made confirmed kills past 1,000 yards with black powder and greased lead Minie balls. Buffalo hunters […]
