    X-Men #12 – Why I’m Dropping X-Men

    So, I’m dropping X-Men. It seems like DC isn’t the only one with crossover-fever. Perhaps more guilty of crossovers that readers are not hugely excited about, Marvel seems to have done it again with Battle...

    Chronos Commandos: Dawn Patrol

    Dinosaurs. Time travel. World War 2. These three things make for a story not often heard/seen/read in todays media. At least, that’s what I thought until recently.  In the last month, I got my hands...

The Crane Wives “Safe Ship, Harbored”

September 27, 2011 | 0 Comments

I’m generally not a fan of folk music. However, the Grand Rapids based band The Crane Wives have got me singing a different tune. The band formed in August of 2010 with Kate Pillsbury and Emilee  Petersmark sharing lead vocal and acoustic guitar duties, Dan Rickabus on drums/percussion, Tom Gunnels as the  banjaneer, and Ben Zitto as the...

“Summer Jam” for a Fall Beginning

September 26, 2011 | 0 Comments

Typically, I enjoy any baked goods with a glass of milk. Cookies, however, can be enjoyed with any beverage, food, or lack thereof. Did you enjoy my double entendre? Huh? Did ya? This band (yes, Cookies is their name) hails from New York, and was so excited about releasing the video for their song, “Summer...

I did. And that’s all I’ve heard. So, apparently I took the proverbial nerd bullet and was the one person in the entire god-forsaken world that read Blue Beetle. And now YOU have to read my review. Take that. Nobody’s going to read this are they… Sigh…...

Broadway Calls, U.S. answers

September 23, 2011 | 0 Comments

I’m actually going to preface this post with both “I’m sorry I have the sense of humor of a ten-year-old,” and “I’ve included a page cut so you guys don’t have to read my jokes.” (Though I do highly encourage it. I’m hilarious…ly inappropriate.) All For Hope Records and Banquet Records announced a new set...

Granted, when a person reads/hears “a melodic punk-group”, they probably don’t think of happy, optimistic tunes. Dudley (anyone else reminded of Harry Potter?), MA’s The Hotel Year doesn’t disappoint this genre-stereotype with their previously self-released album, …it never goes out.  The band recently signed with New York label Mightier Than Swords, which will be re-releasing...

Sucker Punch

September 22, 2011 | 3 Comments

For those of you who haven’t heard about Sucker Punch, it’s basically a male’s greatest fantasy. Hot scantily clad women fighting zombie nazis, giant samurai, robots, and dragons. From that premise alone I should love this film. However something inside me says that while this film does some things right it isn’t as good as it...
