The NFL season is over three quarters of the way through, so it’s time to check in on some pre-season predictions and react to the season thus far.

The Pain and Pleasure of Movie Trailers

By:

The first Avengers: Infinity War trailer was released yesterday, and so it seemed like a good time to talk about something that I’m a big fan of: Movie Trailers. But before we go any further, let’s take a few minutes to view that Infinity War trailer one more time… Still hasn’t gotten old, despite probably a dozen viewings. May 4th can’t come soon enough.

Diversity for Diversity’s Sake?

By:

If you follow politics at all, then you no doubt noticed that this past week had a spate of elections across the country. Most of the media coverage of the elections spoke of the overwhelming success that the Democratic Party had. Much of that coverage speculated on whether the results were a referendum on President Trump and his low approval rating. Some talking heads debated whether the Republican candidates lost…

Thor: Ragnarok Review

By:

SPOILER ALERT: Spoilers for Thor: Ragnarok follows. When it comes to fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, I appear to be a bit of an outlier in the sense that I’ve actually enjoyed the Thor movies thus far and have always felt they were under-rated. In fact, I enjoyed the first two Thor movies more than I did Iron Man 2 and 3. Some people consider Thor bland, but I…

Dead Exit First Impressions Review

By:

I had an opportunity to play Dead Exit a few days before its launch on the Xbox One platform.

Who is Cliff Hyra?

By:

Normally, when I talk about politics, I try to stick to national issues because they’re more relevant to a larger portion of our audience. However, I would like to make an exception here to talk about the Virginia gubernatorial race and Cliff Hyra. Who is Cliff Hyra? He’s not John Galt. He’s the Libertarian Party candidate for Virginia governor. Not a Virginia resident? Please stick with me, as I’ll eventually…

Dump the NFL Already!

By:

Fall is upon us and lots of people are knee deep in the NFL season. Football is the most watched sport in America and for many years has truly been America’s game. But, there are a ton of big gnarly problems with the NFL that are slowly coming to a head. It’s a league that treats its players and fans terribly. It turns a blind eye to racism, sexism, and…
