Tanis Podcast Review

It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of The Black Tapes podcast. I was thrilled to discover that the same creators have another podcast in a similar vein called Tanis. This show revolves around a podcaster, Nic Silver (who is a familiar name…

FanMail December Box

Previously I reviewed my first FanMail subscription box, with fairly mixed results. I decided to give it a second try. In all honesty I was even less impressed with the December box. Full disclosure: I was ambivalent about the concept of subscription boxes in…

Can You Survive The Star Wars Holiday Special?

I decided that this was the year I was going to sit down and make myself watch this most infamous entry in the Star Wars saga, the two-hour Holiday Special that aired only once. It’s so horrifying that it’s…er, well, no, I can’t actually…

I’ve been struggling to get my Force Awakens fix in creative ways, as a girl can only shell out so much cash to see it on the big screen. Enter the Twitter account that stole my heart: Emo Kylo Ren (Yes, yes, I can…

10 Things The Force Awakens Got Right (Spoiler Free)

1.) Abrams struck the perfect balance between highlighting the old cast while handing off the reins to the new generation. 2.) BB-8 got right everything that Jar Jar flubbed. He was a cute character that added humor and charm with loads of appeal for…

I reviewed Viscera Cleanup Detail several months ago but I’ve been waiting for the holiday season to roll around before diving into the Christmas extra, Santa’s Rampage. Santa’s Rampage is the jolliest time you’ll ever spend while knee-deep in elf guts and reindeer chunks….

Don’t Starve, the whimsical roguelike sandbox game that has drawn many comparisons to Minecraft, released the Early Access version of its new expansion on Steam. Though I’ve seen a few people on the forum mention crashes or minor bugs, my experience so far has…
