How 3D Deflated Ragnarok (Or, Why 3D Makes Movies Worse)
Posted: Nov. 3, 2017, 4 p.m.
The fundamental issue here is that the cinematography techniques needed to make a good 3D experience are very different from the techniques used to make a good 2D experience. Artistically, we should view them as distinctly separate disciplines...
Theatre Review: Claudie Hukill
Posted: Nov. 30, 2012, 6:16 p.m.
I'll preface this review by saying I'm not a theatre critic, I've never acted in a stage performance, never been around theater much (aside from working lights and sound for a high school production), and I only go to a couple performances a year, if...
HAM Radio: Kenwood TH-D7A(G) HT

As someone who buys a lot of expensive toys, I'm not really in the habit of writing reviews of the things I buy. However, every once in awhile, a product I use on a regular basis simply begs to be reviewed, in the hopes of sharing my positive...
Movie - Days of Thunder (1990)
Posted: Oct. 24, 2015, 9:07 p.m.
I decided to watch the movie "Days of Thunder" in 2015, for the first time in my life. I was really into NASCAR when I was little, and I remember that movie existing, but I was too young to see it; and then, when I was old enough, I didn't care...
Movie Review: Side Effects (2013)
Posted: Feb. 18, 2013, 10:10 p.m.
Spoiler warnings generally aren't my style, because I believe that when reading a review, there should generally be an assumption that parts of the work being reviewed will be revealed. It's impossible to write a thoughtful review otherwise. However,...
TV: Undercover Boss
Posted: Feb. 22, 2012, 10:26 a.m.
I watch very little TV, usually, and I avoid anything that can be called "reality TV" as devoutly as possible. In my opinion, it's the epitome of everything that's wrong with modern television, and I have no interest in partaking in it. However, every...
Paul Blart - Mall Cop (2009)
Posted: March 17, 2009, 8:10 p.m.
On a whim, my mom and I saw Paul Blart: Mall Cop this evening. I didn't have high expectations; the previews made the movie look rather dumb, and when LilPup & Spike saw it last week, they seemed less than impressed. So, I was expecting a movie full of...
Candy - Starbucks Vanilla Truffles
Posted: March 9, 2009, 8:16 p.m.
A good friend of mine writes a blog called "For the Love of Candy" which focuses on reviewing different types of candy. From classic, everyday favourites, to local delicacies, she has an impressive talent for taste-testing sweet treats. Her site is...
W - The Movie (2008)
Posted: Oct. 20, 2008, 8 p.m.
Over the weekend, I went to see W., a satirical portrayal of Dubya's adult life. From the previews, it looked quite entertaining, and it appeared to make him look like the retarded monkey that I see him as in my mind. So, sure, let's check it...
Unreal Tournament: 2004 Weapons Guide
Posted: Oct. 6, 2006, 4:05 p.m.
Hello again! As some of you may remember, I prepared a weapon guide for UT:GOTY, and it was quite well-received by other members of my LAN groups. While I still love the old UT, most people want to play UT:2004 instead. So, now that I've gained...
Unreal Tournament: GOTY Weapons Guide
Posted: Feb. 28, 2004, 3:44 p.m.
One of the appeals of Unreal Tournament: Game of the Year Edition is the wide variety of weaponry it provides. Unfortunately, with such a variety available, choosing the right gun for a given situation can be difficult, so I've prepared this description...
Movie: Easy Rider (1969)
Posted: Feb. 11, 2003, 10:16 p.m.
Freedom is the concept upon which this nation was founded. The idea of making one's own decisions rather than the government making them has spawned numerous attacks, personal and global, all perpetrated by someone who wanted a piece of the liberty pie....
