Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo: Day Two

On Thursday the Expo was open for just a few short hours. It was kind of a soft opening, meaning Friday things truly got moving. It was also a bit of a glimpse at how busy this show will be on Saturday- which is certain to be the busiest day. Two days down, and I…

Movie Review: Avengers: Infinity War

Ten years and seventeen major motion pictures have all lead to this moment- well, sixteen movies, but I will get to that.

Do I sound…

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…

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-…
