FC Barcelona
The World Cup is currently going on, and perhaps you know Argentina is making a hell of a go at the title. Perhaps you've also heard that Pope Francis is rooting for Argentina. (I assume he's a little biased, you know, being from Argentina himself and everything.) And maybe you've also heard a big part of Argentina's game has been a certain Lionel Messi, a man who shares a spot on the short list of …

Bayoucon 2014
Bayoucon is a fan-run convention in Lake Charles, LA that takes place every June.  I have attended this event (and was even the vice president of the convention's board at one point) every year since its inception with the exception of 2012.  Originally this convention was primarily a science fiction based event, but it took a shot at anime last year.  This year, it seems as if …

CyPhaCon 2014
I've been going to comic and pop culture conventions for quite a few years now.  I've seen the popularity of many of them explode in the last couple of years so much that it's become more and more about the business and less about the fans, the comics, the books, TV shows, films, music, etc.  Now, I will admit that I enjoy going to some of the larger conventions because I get …

Buffalo Bills
Note: I'm re-writing some of my earliest reviews from my Teams Series because they're so far from the template they eventually evolved into.     I'm from Buffalo, New York, and when football came to my personal radar, it turned out I had been born at the right time. When I was about seven years old, the Buffalo Bills began a run on which they became one of the most dominant teams …

New Orleans Wizard World Comic Con 2014
Long before Austin desired to keep itself weird, New Orleans, LA was welcoming freaks, geeks, and outcasts with open arms.  Wizard World, seeing a cash cow, started having annual comic conventions in the Big Easy, and each one has been better than the last.  Wizard World 2014 was no exception.  In fact, it was the best convention I've ever had the joy of attending.      …

Manchester United F.C.
What say, for a minute, that you, an American sports fan, have mastered every ridiculous quirk and nuance carried by all three - or four of you include the NHL - big leagues. You're looking for something that might potentially become the next big thing, and upon checking out this tournament for a sport called soccer called the World Cup which is apparently a huge-ass deal everywhere else on the planet …

New Year's Eve
Okay, I'm a real oddball. I make those ridiculous things known as New Year's Resolutions, and more and more, I keep them even as they grow more outlandish and grandiose. They help me keep track of the things I've wanted to do and have accomplished in what timeframe, and what I have left to do. This year, I want to re-sculpt my boy, get my grades up, find a new focus as a writer and continue sending …

It's a Wonderful Life
I looked up the writers of the classic Frank Capra flick It's a Wonderful Life. Capra's name was among them, and when I did some further-depth research about his own life, I was a little surprised to learn that he suffered occasional bouts of depression during an earlier downswing in his younger years. It seemed odd to me because It's a Wonderful Life doesn't come off as anything that could ever have …

Howard the Duck
Ooooh, Howard the Duck...an odd choice for Marvel to make for it's first comic to big screen adaption and after it hit the theater like a rotten egg in the mid 80's, I'm surprised that they made it to 99 with X Men.      Even odder was George Lucas as one of the creators of the movie chose this for a movie.  Howard the Duck was a weird 70's comic about a duck …

2013 Saga Legends Obi-Wan Kenobi
Hasbro has taken a lot of heat from fanboys and collectors of Star Wars figures over the last few years. A lot of it is justified considering the enormous amount of repacks, repaints, and miniscule selections to choose from. Basically if you have enough Anakin and Obi-Wan figures in your collection, there hasn't been much for you to buy lately.    With the 2013 Saga Legends line, …
reviewed Yahoo! Mail. September 05, 2013
I opened my first-ever email account back in 2000 or 2001. Believe it or not, I still have the thing up and running. I get my Lunch updates there. It was a Yahoo! account, and the email address was baronsamedi30@yahoo.com. Later, I opened two more Yahoo! accounts, one for fun and another for business.     Come the next few months, I'll be closing down the two that remain open. …

The Simpsons
This show is dead. It needs to go. I don't care how good the first eight seasons were anymore. The Simpsons has aired FAR more bad episodes than good ones now, and it's time Matt Groening just euthanized the fucking thing and put it out of its misery, and bring us back from the delusion that it's still any good.

This site doesn't cut it for me. Yeah, the list of restaurants and events is nice, but the reviews too often lack detail and are frequently too grounded in the "it's good because it's good" or "it sucks because it sucks" way of reviewing. I can rarely find out any real details of what I'm trying to learn about.

Just like the Wikipedia Black Hole, it's easy to get lost down a Youtube Black Hole from constantly watching interesting videos.
posted a Quick Tip about Hooters. July 31, 2013
Hooters girls
The Hooters girls look good and the food is decent, though I think the wings are a tad too greasy for me to handle.      Hooters is an okay place to dine out, though while Titled Kilt is a little more expensive, you get much better food and hotter ladies serving you.

Geek Girls
This isn't a review.  It's more like a rant, a rant with some positive vibes in it.  What am I ranting about?  Geeks, specifically geek girls, and how they are treated.      Here we go.      Geek girls are ladies who are just like their male counterparts with the obvious anatomical differences.  You see these young (and old) …

Seinfeld is famously The Show About Nothing. Now, what that means to me is that the characters are simply existing. We know very little about just who they are, what they do, and what they want. In the grand scheme of things, there's nothing, and so to me, that's why Seinfeld is The Show About Nothing.     Now, on the day to day basis, Seinfeld being about nothing was nothing more …

Buffalo wings
Buffalo wings may be one of the most famous and beloved bar foods in the United States, but when one goes in and orders up a plate of these simple little delicacies, are they really getting buffalo wings? In most instances, they're not. Buffalo wings were invented in the city of Buffalo, New York, in 1964 at the Anchor Bar by Teressa and Frank Bellissimo. The story of just how they came about tends …
reviewed Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths. June 23, 2013
The Justice League animated series had a fantastic story arc called “The Justice Lords” as far as I could remember. Alternate universes and multi-verses have always been a part of comic book stories. It is always interesting to see just how far the writing can go creatively when it came to creating one of this alternate universe. Directors Sam Liu and Lauren Montgomery intend to do just …

In April of this year I managed to find a free weekend that allowed me to attend CyPhaCon in Lake Charles, LA.  Although I am from the area, this was my first time to ever attend CyPhaCon.  This was their third year of existence, and they have managed to solidify themselves as the top anime/pop culture convention in southwest Louisiana.      Their guest of honor this …
