    Posted in: Featured, Movies

    A local eatery in my hometown of Strongsville, Ohio was on a reality show called Restaurant Impossible a few years back. The name of the restaurant was The Mad Cactus and it has been an awful establishment for as long as I can remember. The experts on Restaurant Impossible came in with full confidence that […]

    Posted in: Books, Featured, Movies

    Fantasy has made a tremendous comeback. No longer associated solely with guys wearing cloaks around a table playing Dungeons and Dragons (not that I’d ever sincerely knock that as a good time), the genre has become fairly mainstream thanks to well-produced screen adaptations of books like A Song Of Ice And Fire and The Lord of […]
