So, it’s been a weird past few months. I’ve been exhausted by my job at Staples. But the retail phase of my life is hopefully over for good - since I am starting a temp job today. I expect that to take up quite a bit of time. I’ve also been doing random freelance projects… Continue reading “Hazbin Hotel” a raunchy, animated tale of redemption

Blood of Zeus is not nearly as grandiose or fanciful… Continue reading Skip “Blood of Zeus.” Just skip it.
The only good thing that might be coming out of this pandemic is a surge of adult-oriented animated shows and movies that are being planned. Ones that don’t rely on sex jokes or topical references or just have no reason to exist. (I’m looking at you, Star Trek: Lower Decks.) And I hope we’ll get… Continue reading “Funan” is a lesson in history and story-telling
