Sunday Mise en Place (Apr. 9 to 15, ‘018)

Welcome back to the Sunday Mise en Place where things are really heating up. Not really, this is a pretty standard weekly Mise en Place where you can find all the things that I am up to across the internet in one convenient package. As a freelance writer, articles I have composed are popping up…

The Great Chris Debate of 2018

This is a joint release from Green Onion of The Green Onion Blog and Rob Wantz of My Side of the Laundry Room. Recently, Rob and I have been sitting on the sidelines as our blogging family has been debating over which Chris is the greatest Chris in Hollywood.  With four individual posts and a…

Comic Review: Infinity Countdown #1

The Background  The wait is finally over.  As the Infinity Stones are about to be reunited in the Marvel Cinematic universe at the end of this month, so too are the powerful crystals returning to the comic book world.  There has been a lot of lead up to this major event with each stone appearing…

Comic Review: Gideon Falls #2

The Background- Today marks the release of the second issue of Gideon Falls, and I couldn’t be any more excited.  I ate up that first issue like it was a tiny little cupcake- like one of those adorable micro-cupcakes from those miniature cooking videos.  I went on and on in my review, which I slapped…

Sunday Mise en Place (Apr. 2 to 8, ‘018)

Happy April, or maybe not so much.  I have to admit; I am pretty done with winter.  Usually, I try to be a good sport through the frozen season. However, this one just isn’t going to end.  It’s starting to get under my skin, but let’s hit up this week’s Mise en Place. What’s Going On-…

Sunday Mise en Place (Mar. 26 to Apr. 1, ‘018)

I am so tired.  I guess it is Easter or something.  My kids woke up full of juice this morning ready to hunt for some chocolate.  It turns out, yet another magical being invaded our house last night to leave treats.  Between Santa, the tooth fairy, and this mutant egg-laying bunny, there are a lot…

Movie Review: Ready Player One

It is no secret that I am a fan of the incredible novel Ready Player One by Ernest Cline.  In fact, you could call me a super fan.  Not only did I give the book a perfect score in my review two years ago, but it has also made its place to my list of…

5 Must See Movies in April ‘018

With today marking the official release of Ready Player One, nobody really cares about what flicks are dropping in April.  Oh, wait!  A last-minute move by the Marvel Cinematic Universe has suddenly made the 27th the most important date in the cinematic calendar.  Set for a May date, the culmination of all those Marvel movies…

Sunday Mise en Place (Mar. 19 to 25, ‘018)

I’ve always enjoyed writing the year with the unnecessary zero. The ‘018 looks better to me than an ’18. I cannot explain why, but I am sticking with it. I have my own blog to have my own fun in little satisfactory ways. What better place to put it down than the Mise en Place,…

Netflix Review: Jessica Jones – Season 2

I will be honest, I have been on the fence with Marvel’s Netflix programming.  Daredevil, Luke Cage, Punisher, and even The Defenders all failed to get much of a rise from me, basically, they are all, meh.  Iron Fist was unwatchable, we can just leave that there.  But, the first season of Jessica Jones was…

Sunday Mise en Place (Mar. 12 to 18, ‘018)

I always wondered how many people hungover the day after St. Patrick’s Day had green poop because of all of the food colouring? Anyways, I hope everyone is faring well, and welcome back the Sunday Mise en Place. This is the post where you can find a weekly wrap-up of all the goodies that I’ve…
