Comfort Food

When life is hard, I have a habit of wanting to go back to a simpler time, when things were easy. When smiles, laughter, contentment didn’t have to be worked for and nothing was in the way of just enjoying life. The thing that allows me to do that, in the most economical way, is…read more

Simple Premise, Hard to Explain

I have been staring at a blank page for about half an hour trying to figure out how to write about the show High Maintenance. It is not an easy show to convey even though it has a pretty simple premise. IMDB put it most succinctly: A comedy that explores the private lives of unique New…read more

Bird Course

Friends From College is a show with a simple premise; you follow the shenanigans of a group of 6 close friends that have known each other since college and the people around them that interact with this friendship. The second season of the show came out early this year to little/no fanfare (none that I saw anyways)……read more

What have I learned

I first heard about the Netflix show Sex Education simply because Gillian Anderson was in it and my friends thought I should know because of my “obsession” with The X-Files. I read a synopsis of the show which sounded a little silly, kinda run of the mill, but there was definitely a possibility of fun……read more

Are Diamonds Forever?

Do you want to know why most men believe they need to spend 2-3 months salary on an engagement ring and why some women still believe they should hold their would-be husbands to that standard? Well, you can blame De Beers. Before the late 1930’s relatively few people bought diamond engagement rings. People… …more

Cracks in the Glass

Last weekend I went out to the theatre to see a movie. It had been a month and a half since I’d had the pleasure of fold down chairs, loud chewers, and the smell of stale popcorn. My friend and I showed up without having decided what we were going to see as it was……read more

What’s going on

Over the last, almost, year and a half, life seems to have run away from me. Not because I was doing so much but really because I could do so little. I have gone through some things in the last while that have made it difficult for me to create and articulate. But in recent times I……read more

Not sure Yet

Not Sure Yet Last weekend, with much fanfare and anticipation, “Star Trek Discovery” premiered. Before the first 2 episodes of the show aired, quite a few of my friends were adamant in finding out what my… …more

Real or Made-up?

Real or Made-Up? When I was a kid I was intrigued by makeup. I would stand by my mother, her hair in curlers as she applied powders, creams, and colours, getting ready for the day. I wanted to do the same. Despite dabbing a little lipstick on my lips and brushing a… …more

Best of the Worst

Best of the Worst As a movie goer and avid comic reader, it has been clear to me for a long time that there is a problem with the DC cinematic universe. Since the horrendous Batman Forever where producers insisted on veering away from the dark humour that is Tim Burton, they… …more

Thought of Food

Thought of Food When living alone one of the hardest things to do is staying fed without going broke or getting scurvy. A lot of people have an issue with that not because they do not want to eat properly but because they lack the skills necessary to make food they enjoy and… …more

2016 Nerdgasm

2016 Nerdgasm FanExpo 2016 has come and gone. This epic nerdgasm that occurs ever year, heralding the end of summer, brings together all things nerdy, geeky, and fun. Sci-Fi, horror, anime, gaming, all together in a one, technically 2 massive spaces. …more

Better on Screen

Better On Screen Years ago after finding out about my love of comics my cousins told me about one called “Preacher”. They raved about it, insisting I check it out. Based on their description though, which wasn’t much as it was to be experienced, I didn’t follow through. It just didn’t seem to… …more

Another Sci-Fi Film

Another Sci-Fi Film Star Trek has been a staple in my life for a very long time. At a young age I was introduced to the Original series but it wasn’t until Star Trek: The Next Generation (TNG) came along did I fell in love the show and the concepts. I avidly… …more

Nails and Stuff

I can’t believe it has been almost a year since I wrote any Nailed it! posts. That is so, so wrong. Good news though, I have still been slapping on the polish making sure the finger and toes (mostly toes) look good. I have to say they have been looking mighty fine. I’ve been using……read more

Catching Up

Catching Up Even though the weather has been getting better, all blue skies and warm weather, I have been staying in to catch up on some TV I have missed the last little while. No, I am not talking GoT (totally up-to-date on this!) but here is some other stuff… …more

Reading out loud

Reading Out Loud You may have noticed that I have been updating the site. After doing the site for the last 8 years, it has pretty much stayed the same with the exception of some banner changes, seasonal back ground changes (when I remember), and changes in column width. I was… …more

Civil War and the MCU

Civil War and the MCU The first comic book I ever bought was X-Man #13. I was in The World’s Biggest Bookstore milling around in the periodicals section waiting for my father to… …more

Miss Pebbles

Miss Pebbles Last Wednesday morning I was startled awake by my phone ringing. Barely conscious I frantically pawed at my side table, eyes closed, looking for my phone. Groggily I said hello. Apologetically my mother asked if she woke me. It was clear she did but I told her not to worry… …more

DC Still Failing it’s Cinematic Universe

Due to my location, a holiday, and sheer laziness, I did not see Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice  on opening day. I was also not in that much of a rush as the last DC movie was not something to write home about. But the trailer did a good job of creating hype. But that……read more
