megacon

Another Year, Another Con Well, MegaCon 2018 has come and gone, and for the fifth year, I managed to survive.  The older I get, the more of a triumph it is to type that sentence.  However, you didn’t come here to read the lamentations of a rapidly aging nerd; you came to live vicariously through said nerd and learn if maybe you should take the time and spend the money to make the trek to Orlando

far cry 5 review

Ubisoft Giveth and Ubisoft Taketh Away: A Review of Far Cry 5 I have a love-hate relationship with the Far Cry series.  I didn’t much care for the first one; I skipped the second one; I actually really enjoyed the frat bro to Rambo story of the third one; I enjoyed 75 percent of the fourth one, until I realized I was pretty much playing the same game with a slightly better antagonist; I skipped the

sneaky pete review

Sneaky Pete originated back in 2015 as part of Amazon’s Let’s Launch Some Television Shows and See What Sticks program.  Okay, maybe that wasn’t the exact name, but you get the idea.  Anyway, Sneaky Pete made the cut and Amazon released the first season of the show, in toto, on January 13 of last year.  Season two boots up this week. Considering there are currently somewhere in the neighborhood of 25,324 television shows on cable, Netflix,

For the uninitiated, I’m interviewing Jon “Bermuda” Schwartz, who is best known for being the drummer for musical legend “Weird Al”

Do You Love Black Mirror? Why Not Enter the Twilight Zone?

A few friends of mine recommended Black Mirror to me a month or so back.  There’s so much available to watch, that it’s been tough to get to it, but I have managed to watch a few episodes.  It’s a decent enough show, but I probably need a slightly larger sample size to give it the ol’ Commodus thumbs up or thumbs down. However, one thing
