I Stopped Caring About Fall Out Boy and All I Got Was This Stupid Post

In my middle-school and high school days, I was a huge fan of bands like Fall Out Boy and Panic! At The Disco. Not only were the beats catchy and the lead singers ridiculously talented, the lyrics for the songs themselves were like puzzle-boxes to open. I spent an embarrassingly long time going over each… Continue reading I Stopped Caring About Fall Out Boy and All I Got Was This Stupid Post

I Owe E-Reader Users An Apology

I have a confession to make. As someone who is vocal about my opposition to literary snobbery—making fun of adult YA readers, claiming only certain genres are "literary", etc—I must be honest. I am guilty of the same sort of pretentious douch-baggery that I so often criticize. For the longest time, I was incredibly snooty… Continue reading I Owe E-Reader Users An Apology

POV: You’re The Bad Guy

In our day-to day lives we play a role—small or large—in each other's stories. Sometimes we are the comic relief, the best friend, the loving mother/father figure that espouses wisdom.

To All the Stories I Loved Before: a Lament About Remakes, Cash-ins, And Reboots

I am.....tired. Fatigued. Weary. I'm tired of stories I care about—stories about friendship, perseverance, love, miracles—being plundered like a bloated corpse on the battlefield. It's no secret among my social circles that I have a vehement hatred against remakes. Most people don't like them, they think they are lazy and pointless, but I have transcended… Continue reading To All the Stories I Loved Before: a Lament About Remakes, Cash-ins, And Reboots

Babes in Tropeland: Not ANOTHER Alcoholic Dad, Please

For decades the easiest way to get across to the audience the protagonist was a poor-unfortunate soul was to make them an orphan; someone with no northern star to guide them through this perilous hell-scape we call existence. It was a method to make the main character sympathetic from the get-go, but it was also… Continue reading Babes in Tropeland: Not ANOTHER Alcoholic Dad, Please
