Generic Rich White Guy Saves The Day Again!

Family Trees by Kerstin March (Buy on amazon.com)


It feels like an Onion article:  Local Woman Praised for Not Reading Paper; Knowing Nothing of World.  But also like William/Ryan shouldn’t be famous.  If Paris Hilton weren’t, you know, famous (or whatever) on her own, would you have any idea who the owner of Hilton Hotels’ kids were?  Can you pick the children of […]

This afternoon it was hot as blazes out and the kids wanted to go to the park. So first, we stopped at the library, and I picked up this slim, little volume. I read the entire thing while they ran around, and am now thinking about heading back to the library so I can get […]

Daredevil, volume 1 by Frank Miller and Klaus Jansen (Buy on amazon.com)

Daredevil 1

I have this problem. The problem is that I always want to get into more comic books but never know where to start (bruh, you know people who can probably help you with this). But I saw that this edition of Daredevil said “Volume 1” on it so thought that hey, maybe that would be […]

Star Wars Rebels Origin Story: Yes, I watch cartoons.

An New Dawn: Star Wars by John Jackson Miller (Buy on amazon.com)


I think I’m getting geekier as I get older. I caught it from my kid. He’s just getting into Star Wars (and Marvel stuff), and he came to it by way of cartoons on Disney XD. For anyone who hasn’t seen it, “Star Wars Rebels” is an animated series, which is about to start its […]
