Review: Shattering Glass (Part 2) →
I accidentally posted this to the wrong Tumblr. Whoops. themosquitosong: For the review of the first part of this serial, click here. Part 2 of Connor Coyne’s How to Survive Your First Year in College: Shattering Glass encompasses chapters three and four of the story. It is available here. Things are starting to tighten up here, in the narrative sense….
Review: Shattering Glass (E-book)
The following is a review of Chapters 1 and 2 of How To Survive Your First Year in College: Shattering Glass by Connor Coyne. A review of the next part (i.e. Chapters 3 and 4) should follow next week. Shattering Glass is an interesting experiment in new media. It’s a serialized e-book designed for the Kindle. The basic premise for which can be found here. I think that this format is a good...

CM Punk makes fun of The Miz
Today's Completely Necessary Wiki
The various effects of the different colored Asian Mist in pro-wrestling. I remember hearing recently that the dreaded Black Mist can also increase your bust size, at least in the case of Nidia. I can’t remember if her surgery was timed like that, but if the Rabblecast said it, it has to be true…
Review: Dracula the Unconquered (Comic)
Dracula the Unconquered is a nice little e-comic created by Steve Downer, Josh Krach, and Chris Sims of Comics Alliance and Invincible super-blog “fame”. I bought it because: A- I like Sims B- It’s only a dollar and C- Dracula has a sidekick named Thalia, the name of my 8 year old daughter. I’m reviewing it because: A- I think it is pretty good B- I know how hard...
Review: South Pacific (Broadway in Chicago)
Rodgers and Hammerstein’s South Pacific, currently playing at the Cadillac Pallace, is perfectly adequate theater. There isn’t much more to say. There is some nice singing, some fine dancing, a story that is easy to follow, and sets and props that make sense. Also, the chairs are much wider in the Cadillac Palace than they are in the Ford/Oriental. See, I’m talking about the...
In lieu of sitting through a 3D version of Star Wars prequels, I believe I shall re-watch my SLP VHS taping of the original Letterboxed Trilogy off of the Sci Fi channel. Sure the sound is terrible, but there are Carrie Fisher host segments and commercials for the Atari Jaguar… When the hell did I tape this thing again? Or I could steal my laserdisc player and laserdiscs from my...
internationalobject: If they go with Jericho vs Punk for WM, they’ll have the guy who admired Ricky Steamboat against the guy who admired Randy Savage.
Review: American Idiot (Broadway in Chicago)
In the musical of American Idiot, some loosely defined characters sing their way through a collection of barely connected pop songs in order to talk about how hard it is be a privileged white boy who does drugs. There is an anti-war message attached to the whole thing, but its central thesis seems to be that “war is bad because the soldiers sometimes get hurt.” So, basically, it is...
I think we should teach our kids similes and metaphors by making them watch film noir. Simile: She was cute as lace pants. Simile: She was a charming middle-aged lady with a face like a bucket of mud. Simile: She had a face like a Sunday School picnic. Metaphor: You’re a slot machine. You’d slit your own throat for 6 bits plus tax. Mind you these are just from one movie…
