The Importance of Plot

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, July 18, 2020



I have this gig where I make summaries for new books that come out- a shortcut, if you like, for those who want to appear bookish without actually reading the damn thing. Or perhaps they are just looking to see if the actual book is worth their time.

Stuff About Stuff

Banes at 12:00AM, July 9, 2020


I've watched Mr. Plinkett's reviews of the Star Wars Prequels 3 times. Saw the movies once.

Time Passages

Banes at 12:00AM, Dec. 26, 2019

As another year draws to a close, I'm once again thinking about how much time is flying by, more and more quickly the older I get.

Weeks whiz by like mad these days, and how quickly we've reached the end of the year reminds me that YEARS are ...

The Slow Burn

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Dec. 14, 2019



Generally nowadays, perhaps because of the nature of today's media and ways of consuming stories, a fast-paced, rapid-fire approach is favored for telling stories. It's with good reason. With so many options available to a finite audience, there is a high competition for grabbing the audience's attention ...
