Show Recommendation Monday: Daria

Posted on July 6, 2020 at 7:30 PM


My teen years called and requested I rewatch this. So I have. A hallmark of the late 90s, early 00s teen scene, our intrepid heroine navigates high school at the vapid school of Lawndale High. I have intentionally and unintentionally worn combat boots with skirts more than once, thanks Daria. T...

Book Recommendation Monday: Seeds of America

Posted on June 29, 2020 at 7:30 PM

I would argue the first in the series, Chains, is by far the best and absolutely worth reading even if you don't want to invest in a series. The American Revolutionary War was a fight for independence, but it didn't mean independence for everyone. The story follows Isabel and Curzon as they seek their...

Show Recommendation Monday: 30 Rock

Posted on June 22, 2020 at 7:30 PM


I resisted this show for a long time because I don't really like Tina Fey beyond Mean Girls, but after season 1 of Kimmy Schmidt, I finally gave this a chance. I've watched the full series a few times since then. It's hilarious and insightful and self-aware, all things I enjoy in my entertainme...

Show Recommendation Monday:

It inspired the current Clone Wars cartoon, and honestly, it's the better version. It's short, but sweet, bridging the gap, and improving on the story between Episode II and III.

Book Recommendation Monday: Dark Sky Rising

Posted on June 8, 2020 at 7:30 PM


A history lesson is important for everyone right now. I'd also recommend watching or listening to any PBS special or podcast you can find from Henry Louis Gates Jr. He's a fantastic scholar.

Much like The Duchess The Way to Dusty Death is now available on Wattpad as a serial.

Author Recommendation: Jean Plaidy

Posted on March 9, 2020 at 7:25 PM


I discovered Jean Plaidy by accident. I saw a book about Elizabeth I at Barnes and Noble, bought it, then suddenly I was reading nothing but. She has eight pseudonyms depending on the genre (real name Eleanor Hibbert), though...

Game Recommendation Monday: Battle for Middle-Earth

Posted on March 2, 2020 at 7:30 PM


Recommendation Monday: This game is so old and a trip to Amazon will show you it's not impossible to find, it is not easy to play. It's so old it doesn't run as well on newer Windows. And by newer, I mean anything newer than XP. But this is probably m...

Book Recommendation Monday: She Came to Slay

Posted on February 17, 2020 at 7:30 PM


Harriet Tubman is a badass, and if you weren't already aware, you would do well to read this book. It's a quick read, perhaps not the most in-depth analysis, but made it easily accessible to everyone and not just history buffs. It follows the story ...
