    Love Is Strange Review
    Posted in: Movies

    Ira Sachs’ Love Is Strange is a gorgeous 90-minute window into a 40-year-relationship and one of the best films about love in the last five years. The movie opens with the wedding of Ben (John Lithgow), a vivacious painter who never quite achieved the success he expected, and George (Alfred Molina), an introspective music teacher—finally […]

    Posted in: Movies

    For better or worse, The Interview has probably become the most controversial film of our time. Ever since the first trailer came out, the media has extensively covered the back and forth between Sony Pictures and the government of North Korea through both official and unofficial channels, from Sony’s early concession to edit out a […]

    Posted in: Featured, Music, Video Games

    Here’s a list for the nostalgic gamer or the curious. Each of the ten themes listed here has had an emotional impact on the way I view boss fights. Yes, I grew up during the console wars and mainly played JRPGS and side-scrollers from the SNES and PS2. Nevertheless, I think it’s amazing that, for […]

    Do They Know It’s Christmas? 30 Years Later
    Posted in: Featured, Music

    When I was a child, there was only a very small selection of Christmas songs that I would actually dread hearing on the radio. Most of those songs, I still dislike to this day. If I flip to a station playing Brenda Lee’s version of Rocking Around The Christmas Tree, the dial is spun faster […]

    For Whom The Bell Tolls Review
    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.

From there I got in contact with the right people and managed to procure a copy of issue #0 and the accompanying 7” record (both of which […]
