Cultural Significance

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Sept. 26, 2020



So the other day I watched a very interesting video about the new Mulan movie. It was by a Chinese person, explaining why several things were done in a way that is inherently alien to the Chinese culture.

I also recall that the original Mulan was not a hit in ...

On the Outside Looking In

Banes at 12:00AM, Sept. 17, 2020




I was surprised and saddened to learn just the other day that Rene Auberjonois passed away at the end of last year. Even before the upheaval of the pandemic hit us, I think life was busy and a bit chaotic, and I just missed it.

I'd been a fan ...

It is hard to predict when new content for television shows and the big screen will start rolling out. I jokingly once thought that we might all turn back the clocks and bring back old fashion radio shows where candy wrappers were used to imitate crackling fires and beans in ...

The Non-Arc Arc

Banes at 12:00AM, Sept. 10, 2020



I have been a fan of the writer Peter David for many years. After being away from comics for some years, I discovered his run on the Hulk, and also found his work on the Star Trek novels. He was the best writer for those, for my taste anyway. There ...

No Antagonist, No Arc

Banes at 12:00AM, Aug. 27, 2020



I grabbed the Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure and Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey 2-pack and rewatched then after many years. I knew those movies well when I was a youngster, especially the first one. Many, many repeat viewings. Both movies held up REALLY well, and feature “Fool ...

Stuff About Stuff

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

An obscure horror movie was recommended to me and I hunted it down to watch it - it was a great hidden gem for a horror fan like me. A few really effective ...

A few weeks ago, my comic partner and I finished up the second season of one of our webcomic after which we took our usual season hiatus. During this time we work out what to do in the next season, what to include and what to cut from our outline ...

Making Meaningful Connections

kawaiidaigakusei at 12:00AM, June 22, 2020


TP Time (2020)
This piece shows the relationship of toilet paper and time. Are they both running out or is it possible to buy more of either one?

I snapped a picture while staring up at a tall pile of toilet paper rolls and an analog clock. The quick pace ...
