Quick Listens

By Hannah K.  I love having someone tell me a story. Yes, I love reading books too, but that doesn’t temper my love for audiobooks. The right narrator can craft new life from a text. Not necessarily better than reading something yourself, but listening to a book can create a completely different experience. It’s a […]

If What If: History That Never Happened

By Isaac H. For some, history can be pretty boring. Long, drawn out stories about things that already happened can seem extremely uninteresting to some folks. I’m not one of them. I’ve always been a huge fan of history and all it’s sub-genres. World history, American history, regional history, paleontology, archeology, genealogy, it’s all captivating. […]

Time to Travel, Part Two

by Craig B. About a year ago, I posted a list of my favorite time travel flicks. It wasn’t hard to come up with a healthy docket. Rather than a pocket-sized selection of cinematic chronological conundrums, there’s actually quite a few. Too many, in fact. Time travel flicks multiply like rabbits. Since I’ve never personally […]

I love feasting on unintentional humor…low-budget shoestring affairs whose only intentions are to turn a quick buck, art be damned. There used to be a lot of them out there. Strangely, the advent […]
