Manga Monday #4: Kids Say the Darndest Things

I would say the very first comic that I ever got really into was actually Garfield.  My elementary school library had multiple bound volumes of the Garfield newspaper comic strips.  As a third grader, I would check those books out every chance I get.  I remember laughing so hard at that cat and his antics. My love… Continue reading Manga Monday #4: Kids Say the Darndest Things

Freebie Friday #3: Vintage Cindy

Sometimes it's really, really, really hard to choose my favorite Disney princess.  #firstworldproblems But IT IS.  It's so hard!  I mean, there are the clear few that you think, "Yeah, no way."  You know, the ones that just don't fit your princess fancy.  That's cool.  But then there's, like, the rest of them.  There's a… Continue reading Freebie Friday #3: Vintage Cindy

Thursday Threads #3: Village Crazy Lady

Disney is home to some of the greatest best friends of all time.  You know:  Woody and Buzz, Pooh and Piglet, Gaston and his reflection... makes your heart strings tug a bit, doesn't it? I'm very, very lucky to have two incredible best friends that I've known and teased and nerded out with since 2007.  This… Continue reading Thursday Threads #3: Village Crazy Lady

Watch Wednesday

Watch Wednesday #3: Be a Hero

Am I the only one who has been horribly obsessed with superheros since, well, EVER? The first superhero I really loved and wanted to be was Kitty Pryde in X-Men Evolution.  (That's definitely a show that we should all watch, but that's for another Watch Wednesday.)  Today, we're going with Japan's take on superheroes, My Hero Academia.… Continue reading Watch Wednesday #3: Be a Hero

Manga Monday #3: Being Weak in a Powerful World

My goal for today was to point you guys towards a comic that was created in a manga style, but was created originally in English, rather than being translated and later distributed. Way back when, when I was probably twelve years-old or so, I remember there was a certain chunk of the internet that was… Continue reading Manga Monday #3: Being Weak in a Powerful World

Freebie Friday #2: Finally, Some Justice

To me, Young Justice was to DC animation like the New 52 was to DC comics--it was a fresh take on the universe, and a much-needed one.  Using Justice League as a backdoor set-up, it was a show about sidekicks but it was so far beyond kiddie time.  It was intense, funny, and beautifully animated.  And then,… Continue reading Freebie Friday #2: Finally, Some Justice

Thursday Threads #2: When Pre-Schoolers Dress Themselves

I don't know about you, but summer is a love/hate relationship for me.  I mean, I know that summer means barbecues, swimming, and no school--"all good things, all good things"--but it's also just really, really hot and somewhat miserable when you think about it. To avoid shriveling up in the mid-day summer heat, I take… Continue reading Thursday Threads #2: When Pre-Schoolers Dress Themselves

Watch Wednesday #2: The Military is for the Good-Looking

I love Watch Wednesday.  My friends and family (specifically my little brother) have probably had enough with my constant nerd film or TV suggestions, which is quickly followed up with, "HAVE YOU WATCHED IT YET?!" So, yeah, it's good to have this blog to come and type out why great shows are so legit.  This… Continue reading Watch Wednesday #2: The Military is for the Good-Looking

Tuesday Tunes #2: Sailor Moon is a Gateway Drug

When I was young, I remember going to a Blockbuster with my family.  You know, when Blockbusters actually existed.  I loved the whole process of going to Blockbuster.  Picking the movie, choosing candy as we're walking through the checkout line--ahh, good times.  (Sorry, Blockbuster, Redbox is just better.  R.I.P.) One particular time, I was walking… Continue reading Tuesday Tunes #2: Sailor Moon is a Gateway Drug
