Movie Review: Spirited Away, by Hayao Miyazaki
I don't like buying movies.  It boils down to the same reason I don't like buying books before I've read them.  If I finish it and don't like it, it's either back to the used bookstore, or I'm stuck with it. With books, the solution is simple: go to the lib...

Earlier this year, I simultaneously read  Red Rising , by Pierce Brown (which I did not finish) and Red Queen , by Victoria Aveyard (which, spoilers, I did finish but did not enjoy.  At all.)  It was a surreal experience.  Both heroes are scrappy, low-in-th...
