For filmgoers, it’s probably hard to remember a time that the Marvel Cinematic Universe didn’t exist, and yet the franchise hasn’t even hit its teen years. At the ripe young age of eleven years old, the franchise now spans twenty-two films and clocks in at nearly sixty hours of storytelling. Every film, every character, and […]

The Avocado

People I Like is a zine I created specifically for the 2016 Phoenix Zine Fest and people really seemed to dig it.  That could be because I was only selling it for $1, but it was a lot of fun putting it together and talking to people about it at the event.  The night before, […]

People often associate riding a bike with hard effort and working up a sweat. The prospect of huffing and puffing up a hill puts people off. Commuting to work with a bike can be unappealing since you may need another shower when you get there. Weigh that bike down with a lot of groceries or […]

A lot of us take for granted having a grocery store in our neighborhood. For many Americans, however, that trip to the grocery store is a significant trek, made more significant by the cost associated with getting there. from Pocket https://lifehacker.com/get-discounted-lyft-rides-to-the-grocery-store-if-you-l-1834300922 via Best Home Alarms

I think as the years go by, the overall opinion of D&D 4th Edition has become much better.  In its day, 4e was so controversial that a whole new RPG system was born (Pathfinder) for those who hated the system and preferred 3.5 edition.  However, I was out of D&D for many years and never […]

Guy of Sci-Fi

I’ve come to the realization that all of my favorite science fiction shows were or are cult-sci-fi (at least over here in the states).

Sabbatical From the City

We were told to be ready at 7:30am in the morning with bags packed and water bottles filled (a not-so swift task considering each litre has to be sterilised with our nifty UV light). Our guide reminded us that today was probably one of the reasons we signed up for this challenge – the “big […]
