It’s the Little Things

One of my favorite blog series is Tracy Benjamin‘s “My Everyday Life.” Each week I look forward to reading it and getting a glimpse into someone else’s daily life (I may be a naturally nosey/curious person) through photographs. Today, in the spirit of Tracy Benjamin and her blog Shutterbean, I thought I would share pictures of some of the small, daily…

Krista Tippett: Heart Mind and Spirit

  You can disagree with another person’s opinions. You can disagree with their doctrines. You can’t disagree with their experience. – Krista Tippett One of the people turn to when I feel panicked about the state of the world is Krista Tippett.

Don’t Make Your Monsters Grow: What Power Rangers can Learn from Logan

[Note: this review includes some mild spoilers for the movies Logan and Power Rangers. You should just go see Logan.] Logan might be the best superhero movie I’ve ever seen. It’s the latest from the X-Men franchise, centered on Wolverine, the shit-talking, metal-clawed, quick-healing hero who goes by Logan when he’s not ripping people’s arms off. Now, I like action movies. Even when they’re…

A Game of Thrones: Worth the Read?

Though it took me a while (read: an unfortunately long while) to come to my senses, I am, now and forever, a dedicated fan of HBO’s Game of Thrones series. It wasn’t actually that hard to fall in love with the show, once I learned to expect the unexpected, in terms of severed body parts and full frontal nudity. It…

Advertisements are (Almost) Everywhere

A couple of summers ago, I was interning at a now defunct media company. Part of my intern duties were to research other media/ad tech companies (much, much less fun than it sounds), and I started noticing how profitable advertisement is and how much space it really takes up.
