As with any job, sometimes writing has its good days. Other times, not so good days. One of the questions I most get from non-writers, and even some writers who have a hard time coming up with ideas they want to write about, is where do you get your ideas? But a story isn’t JUST […]

Split movie

Let’s first address the elephant in the room: is M. Night Shyamalan’s new movie, Split, any good? Yes. Yes! And hell yes! The other question you might have is: is there a twist? No. There’s some cool surprises, but not the kind of killer twist audiences came to expect in Shyamalan’s breakout movies. After his […]

Thank You

[photo credit Nate Grigg via Flickr Creative Commons] I’ve always had a weird relationship with Thank You. I say it all the time when someone gives me something or does something for me. I say it to cashiers and servers, and pretty much anyone who has to deal with customers all day long. And I say it […]

So, here we go again, wading into political waters. I’m bound and determined to alienate all of my readers one blog post at a time. If you didn’t read my prior post, Why Trump Won, you may want to do that before venturing further. I feel that my last post helped (maybe a tiny bit) […]

Donald Trump

[NOTE: This is a post about politics. And it’s super freaking long. I wrote this the night Trump won, and sat on it for a bit, not sure if I should post it or not. If you don’t like reading about politics, or are just sick of the election in general, feel free to skip […]

[All images copyright Gene Page/AMC] So, tonight we got an update on Daryl in an episode titled The Cell, which continued the pace of last week’s stellar episode with another slow-build narrow focused story. Tonight’s focus was on Daryl, following his capture by Negan, who is being held in a … (wait for it) cell in […]

[Photos copyright Gene Page AMC] [This post contains spoilers for Season 7 Episode 2 The Walking Dead: The Well] Well, this was a much-needed episode to follow last week’s brutal (and ultimately unsatisfying) season premiere. Why was this episode so good? First of all, three words: KING FREAKING EZEKIEL! But not just this awesome new […]

(Image copyright: AMC) [SPOILERS FOR LAST NIGHT’S THE WALKING DEAD] So, The Walking Dead returned last night with its much-anticipated season premiere which promised to answer the question: Who did Negan kill? As you surely recall, Season Six ended with a cliffhanger that (to put things lightly) didn’t go over well with fans. The show spent all […]

TheBoyPoster

(Non-spoiler review) It’s not often that a horror movie surprises me. It’s even rarer for a January horror movie to be good. And even rarer, a horror movie with a doll that I find even remotely tolerable. And yet, here is it — The Boy. I have to admit when I saw the first trailer […]

A Russian man claimed that Fallout 4 is “too addictive” and thus destroyed his job and marriage, AND the game should come with a warning label. He is suing Bethesda and a Russian company for his “emotional distress.” According to the article: He regularly skipped work, which resulted in his employers firing him. He stopped meeting […]
