The Andrew Lloyd Webber / Tim Rice production of Jesus Christ Superstar originally was developed as a rock opera concept record album in 1970 and debuted on Broadway just one year later. Loosely based on the Gospel accounts of the last seven days of Jesus’ life, it begins with his arrival in Jerusalem and ends […]

I have split this trip over two days and squeezed in some of the best tourist attractions in N.I. along the way! I have also included a few ‘Doors […]

Master Chief (Halo) While the storyline of the Halo games has been very hit or miss with me personally, there’s no denying that Master Chief (aka John-117) is one of the most recognizable characters in all of gaming. Genetically engineered and raised to be the ultimate soldier, he is known for his iconic green Mjolnir […]
Fun fact to kick things off: There were Hugo Awards given out in 1957, but strangely, the award categories that year departed from those of years past. The Hugo in 1957 was given only for Best U.S. Magazine, Best British Magazine, and Best Fan Magazine, meaning there was no Best Novel that year. Unlike 1954, […]

Zombies have long stood as a cipher for a variety of fears that range from the AIDS crisis to environmental disasters to governmental malfeasance to the breakdown of the nuclear family. But the decision to focus on the post-apocalyptic element of these films, where humanity has been massively culled and civilization has ceased to function on a large scale, is particularly salient in a world that seems now more than ever on the brink of disaster…
No Spoilers! Everything you need to know before watching Endgame! A short recap of all the MCU movies and the 11-year build-up towards Avengers: Endgame.
This current academic year I began an MLitt in history, that I hope will turn into a PhD, under the supervision of Professor De Meneses. For my theses I chose the topic ‘The Post-War Experiences of the Great War Irish Chaplains, Home and Abroad 1918-1939’. Sadly, this brave cohort of men appear to have been […]
After years of waiting, rumors, speculation, and expectations, the week of Avengers: Endgame is finally upon us, and if the early reviews are any indication, the film is more than worth the wait. After premiering in Los Angeles on Monday, April 22, reviews from both journalists and movie fans alike began to hit the internet, and […]
A few years ago a tradition was started with our older daughter. Each year in early February, she and her husband go ice fishing in northern Wisconsin. We meet them at a lovely family resort in Tomah where they leave us with the boys for the weekend. One of the highlights of the trip is […]
It has unfortunately been all too easy for generations of historians to dismiss the Mobile Campaign—the last major combined-forces operation of the Civil War, involving over 55,000 troops and over two dozen warships—as some sort of inconsequential mopping up operation largely due to the simple fact that it occurred in 1865. While it certainly cannot […]
Imagine those long hours after the cross. Imagine the grief of the followers of Jesus. Sure, Jesus had spoken about being raised from the dead, but to them, not much of that made sense. Maybe they thought Jesus had been speaking metaphorically — sometimes they just did not understand what Jesus was trying to tell them. People who were executed just did not come back.
Class of: 1962 (BBWAA, 77.5%) Team: Dodgers Key Stats: 57.2 WAR, 135 wRC+, .883 OPS I can’t possibly do the life and legacy of the great Jackie Robinson justice in a statistical study. Robinson was the most important person in baseball history. Babe Ruth may have changed how the game was played, and several other […]
by J.D. Lafrance The popular comic book superhero Captain America had his debut in March 1941 courtesy of Joe Simon and Jack Kirby; created as a patriotic symbol in response to the actions of Nazi Germany in the years leading up to the United States’ involvement in World War II. Like any enduring comic book […]
India is the natural motherland of adherents of the dhārmika group – as Indic traditions have now collectively come to be known – the enactments in life of philosophies consistent with eternal, natural order, and are based on universal principles of love, mutual respect, brotherhood of mankind and coexistence, also called the sanātana fold, meaning the eternal way.
