The Tick on Amazon Prime

The Tick on Amazon Prime

When I saw that Amazon Prime was rebooting The Tick, I was super excited. I loved the cartoon as a kid and I enjoyed it even more as an adult. I mean, how can you not love lines like this? You know, evil comes in many forms, be it a man-eating cow or Joseph Stalin. But […]

Spoiler Free Review: Mr. Robot Season 1

I was impressed by the Mr. Robot Experience at San Diego Comic-Con last month. So I finally watched the first season–and the show lived up to my expectations. The World Mr. Robot is set in New York City in modern-day. Mr. Robot is frequently praised for its accurate portrayal of hacking, so it’s definitely set in […]

Spoiler-Free Review: New Game

The World New Game is a simple slice-of-life anime. It’s set in modern-day Japan. The only thing that’s unique about the world is the apparent lack of men. Seven episodes into the anime and we’ve only seen one male character–a small boy apparently related to one of the secondary characters. I don’t think the lack […]

Breaking My Heart

The other day I found out that there will be a twentieth-anniversary show for Homestar Runner. Just let that sink in. Homestar Runner has been around for 20 years. You can see Limozeen, Taranchula, sloshy, Strong Bad, and Coach Z all perform in the same place. But it’s only one night and only in Atlanta! Brothers […]

We Happy Few for Xbox One

One of my most anticipated games of 2016 was released in early access a couple of weeks ago: We Happy Few. I got it for Xbox One (since my 2012 iMac can’t run, well, much of anything now) and I’ve put probably 10-12 hours into the game by now. The final game will be much larger […]

Awaken with JP

It’s late. I worked roughly a million hours today. I’m tired. So you’re not getting a real post today. Instead, I’m going to show you some videos from one of my new favorite YouTubers while I wait for the Excedrin to kick in so I can go to bed. Here’s one on the Olympics to […]

Anticipating 2016

Yes, we’re now in the latter half of 2016–but there’s still plenty to anticipate. This is by no means an exhaustive list (even of the things I’m excited about) but it’s a few things to get you pumped, maybe, as some prepare to go back to school and say good-bye to summer. Walking Dead season […]

National Sister Day

National Sister Day

Yesterday was National Sister Day. I don’t usually care about seemingly made-up holidays, but it seemed like a good opportunity. There’s so much outcry against the media, particularly in its portrayal of women and their relationships. I’m not saying that I agree or disagree with everything said, but I do believe the outcry is overblown. […]

Sense and Sensibility

San Diego is lucky enough to have Sense and Sensibility the musical at its Old Globe Theatre in Balboa Park. Amelia and I love Emma (by the same writer) when it came out about five years ago, so we were thrilled when we heard about Sense and Sensibility. We were not disappointed. It’s always fascinating to see different […]

Fandom is Broken: Why Fangirlism Exists

Back in May, Devin Faraci published a fascinating essay entitled Fandom is Broken. He highlights how fans have grown increasingly self-entitled and demand that creators do what they, the fans, want with stories. While I don’t agree with every point he makes, this problem is exactly the reason why Amelia and I started this blog. The Problem […]
