Freebie Friday #15: I’m So Glad to Live in a World Where There Are Octobers

October, if you didn't know, is the month of books.  No, it's not a monthly awareness campaign, nor is it some sort of holiday, but it is a big part of marketing strategies brought on by book companies--Prestige Book Season.  This month and November are packed with new releases, so much that a book lover… Continue reading Freebie Friday #15: I’m So Glad to Live in a World Where There Are Octobers

Freebie Friday #12: PLUS ULTRA!!

Ever watch a show that was just so horribly depressing that you couldn't take it anymore?  Or, a show that was way too focused on its humor that plot or development seemed nonexistent? Getting that balance, knowing when the drama needs a break, these are things that have to happen into for audiences to keep on… Continue reading Freebie Friday #12: PLUS ULTRA!!

Freebie Friday #11: Friends Are the Family You Can Choose

When The LEGO Movie was initially announced I was incredibly nervous.  It could be really, ridiculously awesome, but it could also be a giant turd.  I mean, how do you even write a plot point around a children's toy, anyway? Then again, someone managed to make a successful movie franchise from a ride at Disneyland.  Guardians… Continue reading Freebie Friday #11: Friends Are the Family You Can Choose

Freebie Friday #10: I’ll Leave Tomorrow’s Problems to Tomorrow’s Me

Shounen, like any other genre, functions within a certain set of tropes.  The structure of the most well-known shounen manga and anime are dependent on a specific set of plot structures and character types. My Hero Academia--which I love, don't get me wrong--is an excellent example of these cliches.  In the shounen genre, it's all… Continue reading Freebie Friday #10: I’ll Leave Tomorrow’s Problems to Tomorrow’s Me

Freebie Friday #8: All Was Well

Today, if you weren't well aware, is September 1, 2017.  Today, at precisely eleven o'clock, the Hogwarts Express departed from Platform 9 ¾ towards Hogsmeade station, and aboard that train we know to be Albus Severus Potter, who is on his way to begin his first day at Hogwarts. Yep, today is that day described in the… Continue reading Freebie Friday #8: All Was Well

Freebie Friday #7: Welcome to the Frickin’ Guardians of the Galaxy

Who else lives life through quoting crap all day?  Yeah, that's me.  It's a known fact that there's a movie quote for everything.  (There's also a SpongeBob quote for anything, but that's a different post for another day.) Join me in my obnoxious habit for this week's Freebie Friday. Welcome to the Frickin' Guardians of… Continue reading Freebie Friday #7: Welcome to the Frickin’ Guardians of the Galaxy
