Another week, another Game of Thrones recap and review! Spoilers ahoy! This week we started off with Tommen's coronation which quickly became a very tense scene between Cersei and Margery. Most int...

I definitely want to try the new Tomb Raider. I am a fan of cinematic-feeling games so it sounds like i'll like it. Problem is, I just started playing Neverwinter Nights (yes, the d&d-based game from ~10 years ago) and am pretty addicted. So it will be a while before I can try tomb raider!

I've been doing worldbuilding in preparation for getting back into writing fiction. I'm pretty happy with how my map is turning out so far:
It's no secret that I like to write (hence this blog), but what you may not know is that I have a long-standing interest in writing fiction. Note that this is different from actually writing fictio...

Almost every sentiment you shared before focusing on the map, I could have written in reference to myself. The parallels at play between our two situations border on the ludicrous.

I made several attempts in the 90's draw draw a map for a story I wanted to write, bit I'm such a perfectionist that it was difficult to find solid ground to stand on. In the end, I acquired some massive sheets of paper, then draw all the various land masses with a rapidograph which happens to be capable of drawing ridiculously thin lines. From there, I found someone with a scanner large enough for the job to scan it, and then dropped it into Photoshop to enhance it.

It's been years since I put more work into it, but this article has me feeling the urge to scratch that itch, once more.

After a few slower set-up/filler episodes, this one was a breath of fresh air. Yes, it contained scenes that were completely made up for the show, but they never felt as pointless or far from the m...

My review of "Her". Short version: it's a really good science fiction love story and you should go see it right now.
I'm not going to mince words here: "Her" is a thoroughly excellent movie and you should go see it. The premise is pretty simple: In the near future, a sentient operating system is released that cus...

You wouldn't believe how wrong movies get the sound of removing the photon torpedoes from their sheathes in space...
