Family makes it better

A couple of weeks ago, I went to California to visit my family in Los Angeles.
It’s a trip I’ve made several times throughout the years and let me tell you, visiting L.A. gets worse every time I go.
To start, I am absolutely terrified of flying, which is weird, because I love traveling so much.
There’s just something about being trapped in a metal tube thousands of feet in the air for several hours that just unsettles my nerves.

The new meaning of ‘Diversity’

Well, folks, it’s happening again.
One of our beloved childhood characters has yet again been changed before our very eyes, completely flipping what we know about our beloved Ariel from Disney’s The Little Mermaid.
The star of the Little Mermaid remake will be black instead of the fair-skinned Redhead we all know and love.
How ever will we recover from this tragedy?
If you’re sensing a bit of sarcasm in my words, you can be sure that there’s plenty.
I’ll make my words plain.

The sounds of other worlds

A few days ago marked the 1,000th time I’ve seen one of my favorite films, Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar. 
While that number is an obvious hyperbole, it feels like I’ve seen it that many times and every time I sit and watch it, I love a new aspect of it.

The End of Infinity


Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame was released on Thursday, April 25, and I, like millions of others across the world, was very excited to see the conclusion and culmination of over 11 years (22 films) of Marvel Studios’ now titled “Infinity Saga.”
