A brief one this week, just so I can say that I made at least one post in the month of July.Continue reading “What I’ve Been Reading: July 24, 2022”
I’ve never claimed that I’m good at keeping up with things, which is why this week’s What I’ve Been Reading has a couple of oldies in it. Today we’re talking about games media, Chinese culture, and The Emperor’s New Groove.Continue reading “What I’ve Been Reading: May 8, 2022”

What if we aligned the text on the right? What would you do then?
Or what if we centred it? How would you react?

I don’t really feel like writing up today’s What I’ve Been Reading, to be honest. It’s not like I’ve lost my passion for blogging or anything; it’s just that I don’t feel these are the best articles that I could be sharing. But I’m also too lazy to go out and look for more, so have three articles of varying quality, one of which I’ll criticize quite a bit.Continue reading “What I’ve Been Reading: October 24, 2021”

It’s time for 2021’s first edition of What I’ve Been Reading. I was supposed to post most of this back in 2020, but I’m going to be honest, I kept forgetting. So that’s why some of the articles are a little old. But I promise they’re good!… Okay, I can’t even promise that. Anyway, read on. If you want. I don’t know. I’m not your boss.Continue reading “What I’ve Been Reading: January 17, 2021”
Content warnings: self-harm; suicide; sexual harassment; abuse.
Every year, I run down the biggest pop culture disappointments of the past 12 months. This time around, it’s tempting to just write, “THERE WAS (AND STILL IS) A GLOBAL PANDEMIC, YOU MORONS,” and simply leave it at that. But 2020 brought a lot of disappointing pop culture, so in contrast to last year, when the list filled up with scandals, I have actual creative works to discuss this time around. Silver linings: take ’em when you see ’em.
A reminder: these aren’t necessarily the worst aspects of pop culture in 2020. These are the things that made me feel the worst. Sometimes they’re things that had the potential to be good, but fell flat. Other times, they truly are just turds. With that out of the way, let’s roll up our sleeves and get elbow-deep in shit.Continue reading “The Ten Biggest Pop Culture Disappointments of 2020”
