Rant on insults and death-wishes; plus thoughts on Oh! / Ah! My Goddess!

Introduction that you can skip if you just want the anime review. So I've received some interesting responses to a few prior blog posts I made over the years. In particular, posts I made regarding the holocaust and pedophilia (if you want a taste of both, go play Barbarossa). The type of responses I do … Continue reading Rant on insults and death-wishes; plus thoughts on Oh! / Ah! My Goddess!

Entertainment Industry Nostalgia: Highlights of 1992

This year was unfortunate compared to the last 2 years. Political correctness really began to rear its ugly head in the films and tv shows. Thankfully, there were still some solid entries. And I'm hoping this is just because this was an election year, with typical liberal Hollywood rooting for the Democratic candidate, who did … Continue reading Entertainment Industry Nostalgia: Highlights of 1992

Farscape (1999-2004) series review

Rated: 4 / 5 One of the few shows out there that managed to maintain being consistent in quality throughout its existence. It's a show I never appreciated as much as I should've. Mainly because at the time I was thinking, "Yeah, this show is fun. It's a sign of better things to come if … Continue reading Farscape (1999-2004) series review

Shows and Board Games to be aware of for the early 1990s

Highlights of 1991

While I don't believe this topped the previous year in overall entertainment, that's a position subject to debate. Because at the very least, this came pretty damn close. But this year also came with some warning signals. 1990 primarily had 1 film that I could say was overly blunt in SJW content (it's nothing compared … Continue reading Highlights of 1991

Rocko’s Modern Life series review

I'll admit, I was kind of looking for a verbal fight when I got into a little discussion with CryptDaddy on Twitter. When he took the position of, "The Tiny Toon Adventures reboot will probably be good." All I could think was, "Yeah, sure, like the Teen Titans reboot, the Doug sequel, Powerpuff Girls sequel, … Continue reading Rocko’s Modern Life series review
