    The Newsroom in the Age of Infotainment
    Posted in: Featured, TV

    Buzzfeed is not real news. Don’t get me wrong, I love Buzzfeed just as much as the next guy, but it’s not. The Onion is hilarious, too. Their headlines are poignant and clever every time. That said, it’s still not news. Why don’t we add Jon Stewart’s Daily Show and Stephen Colbert’s recently ended Colbert […]

    Posted in: Books, Featured

    For a man who went on African safaris, reveled in the bloodlust of the Spanish bullfight and died from a self-inflicted shotgun wound, Ernest Hemingway’s work in For Whom the Bell Tolls seems to be searching for a quiet life away from all the war and bloodshed.

    If there is one word I would use to describe the Star Wars: Episode VII teaser trailer, it would be tense.

    A Few Star Wars Tropes Disney Should Avoid
    Posted in: Featured, Movies

    As world shattering to pop culture and storytelling as the original Star Wars trilogy was, the movies were not without their flaws. None of the pronunciations of planets or species were consistent. The worst actors in A New Hope were the Stormtroopers. They weren’t even actors! They were voiced by disk jockeys across the street […]

    Just about every Star Wars fan can agree that Boba Fett is a badass. I would bet money that even Star Trek fans like him. Armed with minimal screen time and no more than five seconds of dialogue, Fett still managed to blast straight into the hearts of fans ever since his first appearance on […]

    Posted in: Featured, Music

    News broke about two weeks ago claiming musical artists Sir Paul McCartney and Kanye West may be collaborating on a few tracks.
