No major spoilers will EVER be in the title or first couple paragraphs, because those would unfairly display automatically as you’re scrolling along.

I’m having a lot of fun with the new Pokemon features!

[Reading Time: 7-10 minutes; very minor gameplay spoilers] I don’t give a single heck about the National Dex controversy. So let’s get that out of the way right now. As you can see, I’ve played Pokemon Shield for exactly 20 hours, collected the first two badges, caught 69 Pokemon, and am currently running with a main team consisting of: • Hitmonchan: Drain Punch, Bullet Punch, … Continue reading I’m having a lot of fun with the new Pokemon features!

The Algorithm is going to send a lot of “Bizarre Adventure” fans here, and I’m just gonna have to accept that

[Reading Time: 5 minutes] Bottom Line: I’m late to the party, but Jojo’s 2018 re-release of her 2004 debut album is fantastic. I experience new music in a very deliberate way. First of all, I need to be in the right mood. I don’t know how to explain it; the moment just has to feel right. I hit Play at the beginning of the album … Continue reading The Algorithm is going to send a lot of “Bizarre Adventure” fans here, and I’m just gonna have to accept that

You pay $6.99 a month and get access to everything.” Me “It’s seven dollars a month?” Amanda “Yep! Or if you buy a whole year … Continue reading D+

I highly recommend The Official Watchmen Podcast

[Reading Time: 9-10 minutes] This review discusses mature topics, including rape, murder, suicide, and hate crimes; and contains spoilers for the Watchmen comic, film, and TV series. If you: (1) Are interested in the analysis of film as a medium (2) Enjoy nerdy examinations of storytelling (3) Are unsure about the HBO series, either having watched some already or completely held off so far …then … Continue reading I highly recommend The Official Watchmen Podcast

The space junk didn’t even kill her though?

[Reading Time: 20 minutes] This review contains discussion of mature topics, major spoilers for Watchmen’s third episode, “She Was Killed By Space Junk,” as well as a major spoiler for the season three finale of Lost. I watched Watchmen’s series premiere on Hulu/HBO live, while it was airing.

Billie Eilish is a master of understated musical moments

[Reading Time: 1 minute] I’m reviewing an entire artist? I have a few thoughts about her “dont smile at me” and “WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?” albums: My favorite songs off these albums are the ones you’d expect. Hostage, Ocean Eyes, Copycat, Bury A Friend, and Bad Guy. Her music bangs when there’s a lot going on, sonically, but it also … Continue reading Billie Eilish is a master of understated musical moments

HBO’s Watchmen: Sometimes the law is not enough

[Reading Time: 6-8 minutes] This review is free of any major plot spoilers, though I do discuss aspects of the show you may want to experience for yourself if you’ve not seen it. “This city’s afraid of me. I’ve seen its true face. The streets are extended gutters, and the gutters are full of blood. And when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin … Continue reading HBO’s Watchmen: Sometimes the law is not enough

How would YOU successfully run a nuclear fallout shelter?

[Reading Time: 10-11 minutes] This review contains additional spoilers for the game Fallout: New Vegas. I watched American Horror Story’s “Apocalypse” season on Hulu without ever having seen a single AHS episode ever. And I really liked it! My favorite part of the season was the beginning, and while that might sound like criticism, I promise it isn’t. I just wish I could have seen … Continue reading How would YOU successfully run a nuclear fallout shelter?

SVU’s Season 20 finale feels like a superhero movie

[Reading Time: 6 minutes] Law and Order: SVU, S20E24 “End Game”, starts out like any other SVU, with vaguely young girls at some sort of brothel being perused and abused by creepy men. But it soon switches into a callback to the season’s villain, Rob Miller. He sounds like a boring lawyer; and as far as the general public is concerned, that’s exactly who he is. … Continue reading SVU’s Season 20 finale feels like a superhero movie

Shadowkeep felt much more difficult than previous DLC releases

[Reading Time: 6-7 minutes] My sister and I are really enjoying the new Destiny expansion. We did zero power-leveling, didn’t save bounties beforehand, just flew our ships straight to the moon and hit Start. Neither of us really know what we’re doing. We were at a constant disadvantage either from using new armor without perks we like, or from using our old geared-up armor but … Continue reading Shadowkeep felt much more difficult than previous DLC releases
