Bojack Horseman - There's a Reckoning Coming

Posted on October 28, 2019 at 9:40 PM Comments comments (0)

I meant to put up these blog posts on different days, before I watched season six and after, but due to a truly bizarre emailing mishap I couldn’t access the BEFORE blog post until today. So they will be appearing together. Why? Because they’re both ready and I’m already on my laptop, t...

Book Recommendation Monday: Captive Queen

Posted on September 30, 2019 at 7:30 PM Comments comments (0)

Speaking of one of my favorite medieval ladies. A novel of Eleanor of Aquitane and her tumultuous marriage to Henry II. How she was eventually locked away by her husband and how she supported her sons in open rebellion against Henry. You know, typical family drama.

Book Recommendation Monday: She-Wolves

History is fun! Empress Matilda, Isabella Of France, and my personal favorite, Eleanor of Aquitaine, among others, and their role as women of power before Elizabeth I.

TV Recommendation Monday: Harlots

Posted on September 16, 2019 at 7:30 PM Comments comments (0)

I took a two year break from this show because I just fell off watching new episodes weekly., but I've recently had the delight of binging all three seasons. It's the 1700s London and it is a turf war! A prostitute turf war. It's campy, depressing, and delightful all at once. Follow those Wells women as they square off against rival "bawds", devili...

Movie Recommendation Monday: Princess Mononoke

Posted on September 9, 2019 at 7:30 PM Comments comments (1)

This is by far my favorite Studio Ghibli film. And it's not just because of the wolves. All the wolves. Like all of them. It's a tale as old as time. Progress destroys the forest. War threatens the old ways and the new. But Lady Eboshi is the most badass ever, so it evens out? Or something.

Book Recommendation Monday: The Hobbit

Posted on August 12, 2019 at 7:30 PM Comments comments (0)

It's an adventure of epic proportions! Bilbo Baggins leaves his comfortable Hobbit hole as the 14th member of a Dwarven mission to evict a squatter from their mountain. And he never lets the reader forget he'd rather be in his cozy hole. Also, Bombur, who is quite fat. Tolkien makes a point of mentioning how fat Bombur is 12 times and he's only mentioned abo...

Book Recommendation Monday: The Rise of Kyoshi

Posted on August 5, 2019 at 7:30 PM Comments comments (0)

This book is arguably for fans of the shows, The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra. The worldbuilding relies pretty heavily on people who watched the shows. But that said, this book is a fantastic addition to the canon. There's teases of what Kyoshi is capable on the shows, including the fact she earth bent an entire island into existent. This foll...
