american horror story.

Ecran_Titre_d'American_Horror_StoryI’ve finally gotten around to starting American Horror Story. Another one of the countless shows that have been on my ‘To Watch’ list for years. October seemed like a great time to get started.


I expected to like it, but I LOVE it. It was a genuine struggle for me each night to not start another episode and just stay up all morning binge watching. The first season, now referred to as American…

before midnight.

I’m pretty sure the trilogy of Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, and Before Midnight is the greatest love story ever told in film. I would need to think about this for a while to confirm I’m not forgetting about some glaring omission, but at the moment, that’s my opinion on the matter.

the year you can start complaining about george r.r. martin.

I made a mistake yesterday, I read comments on the internet. Every time I do, no matter what the comments are about or where they are found, I promise myself I will never practice such an enraging and depressing exercise again.

You should watch these even if you aren’t into gaming, if only to see where the wildly popular medium is headed. It continues to grow as a beautiful visual medium.

Ori and the Blind Forest

This game looks so gorgeous, and I wish I’d been in the room for this launch trailer.

The Division

This trailer is satisfyingly cinematic. If it was a movie, I’d go see it.

five and five. [five things i’ve been enjoying and five things i hope to enjoy very soon]

I’ve been in the mood to do this again. I’d like to do it as consistently as I used to, but needs must and whatnot. Maybe my schedule will allow it, maybe it won’t.

For my first post back in a while I decided to share five things I’ve been enjoying, along with five things I still really want to try soon.

Five Things I’ve Been Enjoying
