Cultural Appropriation

My sister-in-law recently asked me about my thoughts on cultural appropriation. She is interested in getting dreadlocks, but is concerned that she would be causing offence, as she is white. Cultural Appropriation is a term that I don’t particularly like, not unlike my thoughts on the phrase mansplaining. I think it is a term that […]

AEW Dynamite : July 21st

Fyter Fest Night 2 Here we go! It’s night 2 of Fyter Fest! I love how Mark Henry is in the opening video, even though he has literally done nothing yet. The opening bout was the first of Jericho’s five labours. Remember, the rules dictate that Shawn Spears can use a chair, whereas Jericho cannot. […]

Fear Street (Part 3) : 1666

In the final part of the trilogy, we go back to Union, in the year 1666. Back to where it all began. The origin story of Sara Fier, the Witch. The film had a little bit of a slow start, but smacked the ending out of the ball park. That is no easy feat, especially […]

AEW Dynamite : July 14th

Fyter Fest : Night 1 Fyter Fest wasn’t a bad episode, but it was very dialogue heavily. It felt like it was promo after promo, and most of them were irrelevant or boring. Or both. It wasn’t all doom ‘n’ gloom though, we did have some fun. Let’s recap. The opening bout featured Jon Moxley […]

Fear Street (Part 2) : 1978

We leave 1994 and head to 1978. The teens are still angsty and the witch is still running rampant, we just have a different soundtrack now. That’s fine by me, music is music and violence is violence. We did have some interesting plot developments in Part 2, and I’m looking forward to the conclusion later […]

State of Play – July 2021

Having skipped E3 last month, Sony had their own event to keep us in the loop on some upcoming titles. I honestly thought it would be a bit more of a show. It was a relatively low key event, with some significant titles missing. If you didn’t catch the show, here is every game that […]

AEW Dynamite : July 7th

Road Rager That’s right, it’s Wednesday night and we are back on the road! An action packed episode awaits, so let’s head down to the ring. On our way down, I realised that there is no more long entrance ramp. Just a standard ramp. Weird. The opening bout was the South Beach Strap match. If […]

Fear Street (Part 1) : 1994

My wife says that I am obsessive over the 90s. Aren’t most of us? What a time to be alive. It’s hard not to feel the hit of nostalgia when watching films that are set in my favourite decade. Fear Street hit me twice as hard because it was based on the novels of the […]

NBA Finals 2021 Preview

Phoenix Suns vs Milwaukee Bucks Well, here we are again! The eve of the NBA Finals. Both teams had to overcome a lot of adversity to get here, as did the other 28 teams that fell short. The 2020-21 season has been intense for all involved, even us fans! We have all felt the effects […]

AEW Dynamite : June 30th

Jericho joined the commentary team for the episode, and although it is more fun when he is a heel, it was still a good time with him in the booth. The opening match was Penta and Eddie taking on The Young Bucks, with the former getting a tag team title match if they defeat the […]
