You’ve seen the story before. Poor girl meets rich boy. Girl pretends to be somebody she’s not. Boy and girl fall … Continue reading

The Best and Worst of Charmed: Season 7

The Best and Worst of Charmed: Season 7

Continuing from a previous post, the seventh season was my last favorite season of the show, considering, as it was the first since the fifth season that did not have a major story arc involving any of Piper’s children: Chris, or Wyatt.

On Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie

On Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie

Growing up, the Power Rangers were rather new, popular, and everywhere. The acting was as bad as Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, and Xena: Warrior Princess, and the villains are far more ridiculous than I have seen since. It was no high-quality show, but that ridiculous was entertaining to attempt to take seriously. According to the Huffington Post … Continue reading

Endorsement for Mayor Marty Walsh, 2017

Endorsement for Mayor Marty Walsh, 2017

Having supported him in the past, it is with great pleasure to support Mayor Marty Walsh for re-election this time around as well. Before I get to the good, I’d prefer to talk about the bad.
