Weekly, this blog sees the publication of a Week In Review editorial as a general summation of what I watched, read, played, or otherwise experienced in terms of entertainment. So, it only makes sense that the end of every month shall be met with a Month In Review post to take the best of theContinue reading “Month In Review: January 2019”

What Are You Looking Forward to in 2019? (Discussion 1/28)

2018 was a decent year for movies, weird year for music, amazing year for games, and television has really never seen better days (I hear). However, the past is in our behind and it’s time to look forward to what’s coming this year. Granted, it’s February already but January is usually considered sort of aContinue reading “What Are You Looking Forward to in 2019? (Discussion 1/28)”

What Defined 2018 For You?

Obviously, this title refers to “entertainment” and not, well, actually meaningful occurrences. Also, I sort of made a “Best Of” post but it was largely unpolished and I still had a little bit of catching up to do.

Books First, books: the classic formContinue reading “Audience Experience May Vary”

The Elite Book Challenge

To continue (and complete) these series of Entertainment Challenges, it’s about time we rounded things out with the oldest source of storytelling our cultures have to offer: books. Visual storytelling media such as games and movies have been around for less than a century, and even less than that if we’re going by contemporary standards,Continue reading “The Elite Book Challenge”
