    The Marvels

    I attended opening night for the Marvels as I usually do with MCU films and I wasn’t sure what to expect. How will the 3 main characters work as an ensemble? How will such an OP character fit with “weaker” characters? How light-hearted will it be? Well, ultimately, I think it worked pretty well. You…

    I’m back in Atlanta, GA for Dragon Con 2023. Here’s my photographic journey of whole the Labor Day weekend event. I’ll keep adding photos as the weekend progresses…

    Review: Samsung 28″ ViewFinity UR55 4K IPS Monitor

    Model: LU28R550UQNXZA I have been using a 43″ 4k TV as a monitor for my M1 MacBook Air in clamshell mode for quite some time. However, it has less than great colors as the angles don’t serve it well when viewed in close proximity (like while sitting at a desk). I wanted something that would…

  • Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

    Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

    Following the original The Guardians of the Galaxy movie is not an easy task. That film came out of nowhere to excite so many and showed that Marvel was willing to play with some of the weirder characters from its long history (Iron Man wans’t top iter, but I also wouldn’t refer to him as…

  • South Carolina Comicon

    South Carolina Comicon

    I had planned to attend GalaxyCon Richmond in March 2023, but unfortunately a case of COVID derailed that trip. So, I was looking for alternatives after I got better and stumbled across SC Comicon in Greenville, SC. I tend to look for a few things in a convention:‌ SC Comicon really offered one of those.…

  • Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves

    Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves

    I had been waiting for this to come out for a while now, mostly out of a desire to finally have D&D transcend media (from games/literature to the small/big screen) and release something … good. I watched the reviews build up and was convinced it was only a matter of time before they took a…

  • Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania

    Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania

    Let me just say that I do NOT understand what is going on with the reviews of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Currently (the evening of 2023.02.17), Rotten Tomatoes has this movie sitting at a Tomatometer of 48%. That feels like an incredibly low percentage for a movie that I really enjoyed. That isn’t to…

  • Stranger Things (Seasons 1-4)

    Stranger Things (Seasons 1-4)

    I haven’t subscribed to Netflix for a bit as I feel they are overpriced for the content they offer. However, while I was caught up on Stranger Things, my younger son, Ian, was keen to watch it with me. The first two seasons didn’t particularly concern me as he isn’t easily frightened, but each season…

  • Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

    Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

    I went to see Black Panther: Wakanda Forever last night with my younger son and we both enjoyed it. However, I think I enjoyed it more than he did as it is a slow burn of a blockbuster (there’s more dialog and less action set pieces or at least it felt that way). There is…

    This is a collection of some improvements that I am hoping to see as part of WWDC 2022. Some are more likely than others, but they’re all things I wish to be undertaken by Apple… iOS/iPadOS macOS tvOS/Apple TV app
