Regarding the Current Situation

Okay…. this is not the post I thought would be going up today. I had something all typed up about some of my favorite things from 2020, but I didn’t get it posted this morning and then… well, let’s not mince words: a group of terrorists stormed the Capitol in an attempt to stage aContinue reading “Regarding the Current Situation”

Mobile Suit Gundam, Episode 43: Escape

This is it! The grand finale! The final episode of Mobile Suit Gundam. Wow. I’m… I’m honestly a little awestruck to be here, you know? I set out to go through the series episode by episode on this blog, and now I’ve actually reached the end. Wild! I think it’s interesting that this episode, theContinue reading “Mobile Suit Gundam, Episode 43: Escape”

Mobile Suit Gundam, Episode 42: Space Fortress: A Baoa Qu

Look at that “Q” up there. I don’t use a capital Q very often. It looks good, doesn’t it? I like it. This episode picks up right where “A Cosmic Glow” ended: with the obliteration of Revil’s fleet and the Zeon flagship Great Degwin by Gihren’s Solar Ray. However, this time we’re treated to anContinue reading “Mobile Suit Gundam, Episode 42: Space Fortress: A Baoa Qu”

Mobile Suit Gundam, Episode 41: A Cosmic Glow

It’s Gundam time! After Gihren’s “Hitler was awesome” rant last episode, his dad, Degwin, has decided that the kid has gone too far. The Zeon monarch secretly abandons his son as we pick things up this week, heading out to initiate peace talks with the Earth Federation. Good for you, Degwin, growing a conscience! NoContinue reading “Mobile Suit Gundam, Episode 41: A Cosmic Glow”

Building A World: Astvolk, the Land of Eternity

The world of Seliit continues to grow! The nation of Astvolk is, admittedly, one I haven’t put a ton of work into yet. It occupies the same continent, Dulsa, as the rest of the nations I’ve profiled here so far, and I wasn’t sure what function I wanted it to fill in relation to thoseContinue reading “Building A World: Astvolk, the Land of Eternity”

Immortals: An Adventure of Epic Proportions

I’ve been craving a big, open-world game lately–something with a big map stuffed with lots to do. I’ve long been a fan of the genre; the classic Assassin’s Creed formula always works on me, and games like Breath of the Wild have only improved on it. Luckily for me, the recently released Immortals Fenyx RisingContinue reading “Immortals: An Adventure of Epic Proportions”

The Edible Bestiary: Top Cheeses at The Drunken Druid Dairy

By Genevieve Jethri I will confess, I don’t have a very refined palate when it comes to cheese. Most of the cooking and eating I’ve done has been done on the road–and while that’s great for learning about fresh ingredients, it leaves very little time for something as complex and involved as cheesemaking. Of course,Continue reading “The Edible Bestiary: Top Cheeses at The Drunken Druid Dairy”

Mobile Suit Gundam, Episode 40: Lalah’s Dilemma

Hey! We took a week off, but we’re back–back in a Gundam mood! As we pick up from last episode, the Gundam is in need of serious repairs. More than that, it’s in need of an upgrade, since Amuro has become to fast for the machine to keep up with. There are rumblings on theContinue reading “Mobile Suit Gundam, Episode 40: Lalah’s Dilemma”
