MARVELous Movie Rankings

With Marvel’s newest movie “Infinity War” coming out in just a couple of days, and the comic book-based studio promising that it will be the biggest film yet, I thought it’d be a good time to rank the previous 18 Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) movies by using math. These movies are cash grabs but have... Continue Reading →

Popcorn flick vs. book

Previously published in The Daily Star of Hammond, Louisiana.  With Steven Spielberg's latest blockbuster, "Ready Player One," (RPO) out in theaters people are asking the same question: "Is it as good as the book?" Admittedly, not as many people are asking this question for RPO as they did for other books made into movies like Harry Potter... Continue Reading →

Barry slays pilot

Previously published in The Daily Star of Hammond, Louisiana.  If you're anything like me, the sheer number of TV shows available in the age of streaming and peak-TV makes it more difficult to find a show to watch than it was when I was a kid flipping through channels.

The main issue was... Continue Reading →

I know what this is supposed to mean (it appears to be a more faux-poetic way of saying, “I’m... Continue Reading →

Back to Back in Black

Previously published in The Daily Star of Hammond, LA. Two months ago, I spent 17.7 plays through AC/DC's album "Back in Black" in a tiny closet looking through every issue of "The Daily Star" of 2017 to count all the photos we used. That's 12 hours, 26 minutes and 40 seconds long for those of you... Continue Reading →
