Charlotte’s Women’s Basketball getting better with age

Charlotte Women’s basketball has been having one of their more difficult season. A six win, 11 loss record is nothing to post on the twitter page. After all a .35 win percentage isn’t what the great basketball teams of the NCAA normally clock in with. The Niners however have not lost faith on their season. […]

Gaming Roundup: January/February 2018

 “The Inpatient” – Jan. 23 for PSVR The first “Until Dawn” game is one of the PS4’s most underrated exclusives, as it told a solid horror story that presented multiple paths based on your choices, much like Telltale games. Its PSVR sequel “Until Dawn: Rush of Blood” told a much more contained story, with its […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Call Me by Your Name’ is a competently crafted, crushingly tepid romance

“Call Me by Your Name” has been on my radar for quite a long time, since its esteemed premiere at last year’s Sundance Film Festival. Queer cinema is something that excites me as a gay man, but also concerns me as we must keep the stories we tell in check, as to not sour the […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Phantom Thread’ is a sublimely divine twist on romance

As I said three years ago (I hate time) in my review for “Inherent Vice,” Paul Thomas Anderson has always been one of those filmmakers whom I recognize an immense amount of talent in, even if I’ve never really been captivated by one of his films in a way that others have. “There Will Be […]

Megadeth – So Far, So Good… So What! 30 Years Later

  When you think of Megadeth what great albums come into mind? “Peace Sells”? “Rust in Peace”? “Killing Is My Business”? Well, what about this album?  No? Why? For some reason, “So Far, So Good… So What!” has received the unfortunate treatment of being sandwiched between the two albums that are considered Megadeth’s best, “Peace […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘I, Tonya’ is a surprisingly endearing story of a million different views

I know I’m late on this one. Bite me. I learned about Tonya Harding from a relatively early age. My mom watched a lot of the VH1 docu-series “I Love the ’70s” and “I Love the ’80s,” which I often watched with her. I loved picking up on pop culture of a different era, on […]
