Bands of Brothers: Comparing "The Watch" and "The World's End"
It is difficult to avoid comparing The Watch (2012) without thinking about Edgar Wright's The World's End (2013) . There is a similarity between these two films, much in the same way that Zombieland (2009) and Shaun of the Dead (2004) are similar but very d...

When Jealousy Is Not Irrational
Earlier this week, I mentioned my advice to a Redditor to describe his jealousy as "stupid" and "irrational" ... which got me an earful from several quarters. And rightfully so. This is one of those instances where the specific audience matters. The Reddito...

Writing (and gaming) Music: The Cryo Chamber Collective (Azathoth and Cthulhu)
It's difficult to get that mix of "creepy". It sounds like it should be easy - a low throbbing undercurrent, maybe a few other little grace notes of sounds thrown in. But in my experience, many musicians try... and fail to hit the mark. Either the throbbing...

There's A Dark Side to Relationship Anarchy If You're Not Careful
I've mentioned relationship anarchy on the blog before, and I think it's got a real place in the ongoing cultural conversation about where, and how, we're going to make our relationships work for us , as we are, rather than a cookie-cutter template that nev...
