Happy International Podcast Day!

I just found out two nights ago that today, September 30th, is International Podcast Day (an event that even has its own website!  https://internationalpodcastday.com/).  It’s an event that even has sponsors making it all possible. If you want to read the full history of the day, check out their “About” page: https://internationalpodcastday.com/about/ For my part of celebrating, […]

Usefulness of Medium

I really like Medium.com.  There’s a wide range of articles available on virtually ANY topic – from the trivial to the very important.  And if I were feeling lazy, I’d end my post right there – those are reasons enough for me to publicly state my fondness for Medium.  But I’m not (too) lazy.

Star Trek: Discovery Review

I finally finished watching the final bits of “The Battle at the Binary Stars”, the second episode of Star Trek: Discovery.  Here’s my quick review of the show! Overall impressions I thought the premiere episodes were great.  In Canada, Discovery is being released on Space, the Canadian version of the SyFy channel.  I’m incredibly thankful […]

Podcast Goals

If you’ve been reading any of my posts for the last little while, you probably know I’m really into Podcasts.  I host my own show, Alternative Airwaves, which is a quasi-monthly music podcast where I play Creative Commons songs exclusively. Along with my friend Mike, I also co-host Futurama Pedia, which is a “release when […]

New on Netflix in October (Canada)

I was a holdout of Netflix for a long time, but with the demise of Shomi last November, I finally bit the bullet.  Most months I don’t even pay for it out of pocket money, using cash earned through SwagBucks.  So I’ve been enjoying it a lot. Here’s the full list I’m reading from, courtesy […]

How To Read 3650 Pages In A Year

I’ve been doing a little bit of research lately to try and get more eyeballs onto my blog, and one of the things I’ve been trying to do is read what other people are writing.  That’s something I’ve been neglecting for some time. One of the articles that I found was from the blog Flight […]

Historical Inaccuracies in Hidden Figures

I missed the boat when Hidden Figures was first in theatres, and finally caught up with it when I picked up the Blu-Ray in July.  I really liked the movie!  The cast was really good, and even though I recognized a lot of the bigger names, they took a back seat to the persona of […]

I’ve Had Enough of You, Yoast SEO

When I started this new blog in January, my number one goal – and today it’s still the number one goal – was to engage readers.  That hasn’t exactly happened.  But that’s okay, and I’m still working on it. But one of the reasons I pushed forward and bought a domain name with a WordPress […]

Adding to the Family

Well, August was certainly a busy month.  I didn’t get to all of the comic books that I meant to write about.  I’m still going to read them, and put reviews up, but I really dropped the ball.  In fact, over the entire summer, I feel like I’ve dropped the ball with the consistent posting. […]
