I won’t say I read a lot of plays, because I don’t particularly, but I do enjoy reading and sometimes seeing them when I can. Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett is one of my favorites. I like a good helping of existentialism, and I love a play with minimal… well, everything. Not many characters, hardly any props, barely…… Continue reading Review: Theatreland (2014)
Hi everyone, sorry for the intermittent posts this past month. I’ve been graduating and settling in with a new job! I’m in the process of setting up books and posts for the future, though, and I’m excited to have more time and energy for blogging and blog-reading.

I successfully defended my thesis WOOOHOOOO YAAAAAY! One more summer of class and I graduate! My brain’s still pretty fried from all that, but my buddy Rose and I put together a Star Trek post for Comparative Geeks: Let’s Talk About First Officers.

And it has an intro sequence with…… Continue reading Review: Netflix’s Series of Unfortunate Events

Some end-of-year Star Trek reflections! “A Year of Watching Star Trek” on Comparative Geeks
Pleasantly surprised by “Encounter at Farpoint,” I take the opportunity to list all the things I thought about it, compared to Star Trek’s past and with the rest of Star Trek: The Next Generation in mind. Also there’s a My Little Pony meme. Star Trek: The Next Generation, First Impressions on Comparative Geeks
Before The Boxtrolls came out in 2014, it was getting buzz for its creepy Burton-style animation and a same-sex couple shown in one of the trailers. Then it hit theaters and I heard, well, nothing. That kind of response doesn’t really mean anything except that people didn’t go see it in the first place, but…… Continue reading Review: The Boxtrolls (2014)
This month’s Star Trek column is all about the great Captain Kirk! I’m not saying there’ll never be another post about the original series, but this is meant to kind of sum up that era as I move into The Next Generation. Check it out on Comparative Geeks: 4 Reasons Kirk is the Best Captain
