The media, the holiday season and the story of a child who doesn’t celebrate any of it

I definitely remember my little fourth grade choir class doing Christmas sing-a-long stuff while I sat in the library and wrote an essay on Linkin Park, because my teacher didn’t want me doing nothing. I don’t know who got the worse end of that deal, and I don’t think I ever actually got a grade on my essay. Still waiting on that. I hope I get an A; I need it to pass that class. 


Superhero fatigue: it’s not what you think it is

Has the public finally given into superhero fatigue or is it all a lie? Looking at it, I don’t think it’s superhero movies that have the problem. In fact, superhero movies are the exception considering how well they do. The problem isn't from with superheroes, but with Hollywood itself.


The Universal "Dark Universe" unraveling is for the best

‘Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back’ is an exfurrcise in meowdiocrity

'Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back' is a mediocre reboot of a franchise famous for mediocrity. It’s no surprise that the game isn’t that great; it’s source material was bad as well. The real crime of this game is that the devs think charging $30 for a two-hour indie game is acceptable. For some perspective, the absolutely amazing 'Cuphead' is $10 cheaper for a much longer gameplay experience. 'Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind' even had more levels and playtime, so there’s no excuse for this. The only reason this game has to exist is to be bargain bin meme trash bought for friends or enemies on the Steam Summer Sale.


Know your 'Pokemon' villains before you face them in 'Ultra Sun and Moon'

All of the most dastardly Pokemon meanies team up to destroy Alola or the gap between dimensions and parallel universes or something; I lost track of the plot after Alpha Sapphire’s post game. This means that not only do we get to see some favorites like Archie and Maxie again, but also Cyrus, Ghetsis, Lysandre, and Giovanni.
