Logan’s Run for the Border

How psyched/bummed are you guys for Logan tomorrow? Or maybe tentative/bummed, depending on your general outlook and attitude on the Wolverine movies. I’m fucking psyched. I love that they are doing a film that is loosely based on the Old Man Logan comic series. I am SUPER bummed that not only is it Hugh Jackman’s last film,…

The Walking Dead: Lovely Lucille

Walking Dead Spoilers. Barely. Whatever, just don’t complain. It’s not always easy being a Walking Dead fan. Deaths upon deaths. Lost body parts. Extreme personality shifts. Your favorite character could be gone in an instant. (I miss you, Chad Coleman!) This why I am protecting myself. I’m no longer allowing myself to get attached to these…

Tame My Wilder Heart

My dear boy, do you ask a fish how it swims? Or a bird how it flies? No sirree, you don’t! They do it because they were born to do it. Just like Willy Wonka was born to be a candyman…  Just like Gene Wilder was born to be an entertainer. Gene died on Monday….

Fear the Walking Dead—I don’t dig mid-season bullshit, but AMC seems to be all about it. So here we go. The Fear the Walking Dead break is almost over. While I enjoyed season 1, I was a little disappointed about the ramp up being so rapid. I wanted a bit more pre-downfall of civilization. It…

Mr. Peanutbutter’s Puppy Chow

You can ask pretty much any question to determine if you’re a Zoe or a Zelda… but there’s one question that won’t make a damn bit of difference. Do you like peanut butter? Your answer will either be “yes” or “I’m allergic.” There is no other option. I think that that also goes for Mr….

The Wings of Winter

Tonight is the season 6 finale of Game of Thrones. If you watch the show, that’s not news to you. If you don’t watch the show, you don’t give a fuck. There will be some slight spoilers (show, book or otherwise). Leave or deal. The show is known for it’s epic penultimate episodes. Last week…

Key (Lime) Peele Fudge

I remember seeing the trailer for Keanu for the first time. I was so unbelievably stoked that we were getting a Key & Peele movie… ABOUT A CAT. My old cat lady heart grew three sizes that day. Make sure to go see it in theaters, TODAY (Friday, April 29th)!  Key & Peele on Comedy…

the Bat Cave vs. the Fortress

The Bat Cave vs. the Fortress On my recent travels, I came across a couple of restaurants, very similar in style that I wished to review. The style being… stark, heroic, epic… trying to achieve something grand. The first, was a little basement-level space in the city of Gotham. It’s down a dark alley but…

Cowboys 4 Angel Food Cake

I’d say I have a handful of guilty pleasures, but I don’t really care for the term. I have a handful of interests that lie outside of the spectrum of sophisticated entertainment and I am not ashamed of it. (I actually have way more than a handful of these, but that’s not as poetic-sounding.) I…
