Noah is an introverted high schooler who tends to be a […]

The Search for El Sueño Fauno

FADE IN: INT. KON BROADCAST STATION – NIGHT On top of the door resides a black brick completely lost in shadow. A mechanical click sounds and the brick is illuminated into a crimson red glow reading “On-Air”. The sign gives an electrical hiss that rivals the irritating frequency of a cicada. WYATT WENT, an eccentric […]

Paint Broad Strokes

Hisao Naka ひさお 中 Art invigorates life. Without the presence of art, existence would be dull. A bottomless pit in which we endlessly fall down.

“Fantasy is hardly an escape from reality. It’s a way of understanding it.” ― Lloyd Alexander Life can only contain so many fleeting moments before it all comes to an end.

I TRIGGERED! Microsoft Word

Oh Microsoft Word, the royal persons of passive-aggressively correcting spelling and grammar mistakes. We was writing something, and then when we went back to go edit it and we found the squiggly red line indicating an error. Inclusive Language? Consider using gender-neutral language? We could not fudging believe it. We are sorry but it is […]

10 Examples of Why The ‘Wish Upon’ Script is an Abomination

Wish Upon (2017) sucks. It’s obviously uninspired and brutal to sit through. If you like cheap horror semantics, formula plots/cinematography/editing, and overall blandness then go knock yourself out. Yet, this movie lives in this bizarre world of completely not understanding youth culture… or I think just humans in general. It is one of the most […]

Fake News!

“Fake News” is everywhere. While it should be uncontested that “Fake News” does surely exist, what it is exactly is a little harder to answer. The thing about “Fake News” is that it is completely arbitrary and lacks a true definitive definition. Is it the Collins English Dictionary definition of: “False, often sensational, information disseminated […]
