The Point of no Return

by Deana Chadwell4/4/17
The point of no return, the place of no more chances, the door that slams forever shut – these are concepts that make us cover our ears and holler, “La-la-la-la.” The western world in the 21st century works hard to mask final realities. More » • (857 views)

Kunk Fu Zoby Kung Fu Zu4/3/17

Movie Review: Interstellar

by Steve Lancaster3/26/17
Suppose that G-d, or if you prefer nature/universe, has decided that mankind had spent more time on this planet than necessary and it was time for us to depart. Would we get a 15 day pay or quit notice nailed, where, to the doors of the Vatican? More » • (656 views)

Chaos and the Everlasting Arms

by Deana Chadwell3/23/17
Shakespeare’s play Othello showcases the most vile character in all of drama –a man often referred to as “honest Iago.” He is especially horrifying because he is charming, efficient, and intelligent, but mostly because he often breaks the fourth wall More » • (528 views)

 Trigger-warning Tyrants

SellwynThumbby Selwyn Duke3/23/17
People like thinking the best of themselves, which is partially why we have “trigger warnings,” “microaggressions” and claims of “taking offense” — so these complainers don’t have to come to terms with the fact they’re spoiled, self-absorbed, tyrannical brats. More » • (917 views)
