Red Dead Redemption and The Greatest Video Game I’ve Never Played

It all comes back to this. I’ll never forget the first time I saw this trailer for the greatest game I’ve ever played, Red Dead Redemption 2. The way the music builds and swells right around the time Arthur Morgan begins to speak, saying “listen to me, when the time comes, you gotta run and

Just a Little Fun

Did I have to post that? Maybe, maybe not. But… that is the story of LeBron James career. Okay so in the first season LeBron was this kind of dirty cop right, but with a good heart. He’s got to search for this kid see, but the kid is dead, or is he? Then we

Eureka! Proof There Is Still Hope On The Internet

I’m a bit nervous. Hell, I think you should be too. “Why?” You might ask. Well because of what I am about to put into the internet’s hands. You know the internet just as well as I do. It can be a hellish landscape to traverse. And, pretty soon, you, me, and everybody’s mom is
