Mutants and #BlackLivesMatter

I apologize for not posting much lately. Between work, independent projects (that I’ll post more about when they’re closer to being finished), and recent events, I’ve been rather busy. Beyond that, so much has happened that when I tried writing last week about current issues, I didn’t know where to start. I live in Baton… Continue reading Mutants and #BlackLivesMatter

Mental Health: Tony Stark and Me

SPOILERS for Captain America: Civil War I’ve spent all month trying to figure out how to write something for Mental Health Awareness Month, and what to focus on specifically.

The Bird’s Got Pipes: Black Canary EP

I don’t normally review music, but this is a special case. Black Canary, the DC Comics superhero, has a legendary voice. Her sonic scream can break glass, disrupt technology, and burst eardrums. The more recent development seems to be that, when she’s not screaming, Black Canary can really sing. In DC’s Bombshell’s, Dinah is a… Continue reading The Bird’s Got Pipes: Black Canary EP
