Watching & Ranking All DC Animated Universe Movies

Watching & Ranking All DC Animated Universe Movies

How much of your time I need: 5 minutes Nerdy topic? Questionably interesting? Aren’t there better things you could do with your time? Is this your commitment to never getting laid again? Does this opening paragraph contain a juicy hook? Yes to all but one of those things, strap in anyway! One of the things I’ve also been binging are the DC Animated Universe Movies. I’m going to give a brief rundown here and then discuss the structure of how rankings will work and reviews will appear over the…

Quick Update on Me, Writing, & the Future!

Quick Update on Me, Writing, & the Future!

How much of your time I need: 1 minute I haven’t written here in a minute but to give the few and far between who read an update, I quit my job last month!

I could probably stand to work a little harder but there’s savings to burn so who cares? A couple friends and…

Stream Wars 3: Return of the Delivery Guy

How much of your time I need: 4 minutes This article originally appeared in The Florida Basement, a Gainesville-based music blog. Amazon has been rolling out some fresh features lately. I have been taking full advantage of Prime Reading, which unleashes a cornucopia of classic and more modern titles, plus self-help materials, for your unending pleasure. But books are hardly the focus here at *boom* *pow* *fourth wall* The Florida Basement. Recently we’ve seen a far more intriguing development from the Goliath of delivery, one that puts into perspective…

The Value of Extending an NBA Playoff Series

The Value of Extending an NBA Playoff Series

How much of your time I need: 4 minutes This article originally appeared in The Lombardian, a Tallahassee-based blog. Many arguments have been fielded recently regarding the somewhat capricious nature of the National Basketball Association. This is particularly evident in the case of Draymond Green, who received a suspension barring him from Game 5. But I’m not here to debate the right or wrong of a casual shot to the crown jewels, and especially not a second or third one. We’re here to talk pure profit in scenarios where…
