Shade Reviews: Spiderman: Into the Spiderverse

Spiderman:into the spiderverse was the best Marvel film released this year. I know that’s a very big claim considering the other titan that is Avengers: Infinity war. However, I teared up, laughed and was charmed by this living comic book of a movie. And that is the best way to describe the vibrant, frenetic, living, breathing, animation of this film. Sony Pictures, who still cling desperately onto the copyright of arguably one of the most valuable superhero franchises out there, had had more misses than hits and more often that not, the best is normally just okay. However, this movie … Continue reading Shade Reviews: Spiderman: Into the Spiderverse

Shade Rants: Jordan B Peterson: World’s worst psychologist

I really despise people who use the field of psychology for ulterior motives. Jordan B. Peterson is a great example of someone who does this. Now many people who are experts in fields, attempt to comment on politics in relation to a different field. This rarely changes the fact that their actual expertise in the field they have in career in is genuine. However, with Jordan B. Peterson, I feel especially strongly that he is a charlatan. I truly believe he has experience in the field and is able to help his clients. However, he is cynical and is a … Continue reading Shade Rants: Jordan B Peterson: World’s worst psychologist

An apology

To my esteemed readers, I have had issues blogging consistently recently and for that I do apologize. I have had ideas mulling around in my head and have been dealing with a bout of depression. I will try to blog more consistently so that I have a good record approaching Halloween. My goal is to have at least three of my Muertos stories complete by then. Or at least, I would like to have drafts of all three. Understand that for everything I blog on here, I am always trying to improve whatever I post. Cheers and have a spooky … Continue reading An apology

Dias de los Muertos: Lunes pt 1-3

Carter punched his younger brother in the side hard. The younger boy cried out in pain and squealed. “Hey grasshopper, we are here” Carter said while grinning like a loon. Ken, blinked the tears out of his eyes and looked around to see the fields of wine stalks that made up the vineyards surrounding his grandfather’s ranch. Ken and his elder brother Carter were going with their eldest sister Sayu to stay at their grandparent’s place for a month. Neither of the boys wanted to go, but it was important to their grandparents and so it was important to their … Continue reading Dias de los Muertos: Lunes pt 1-3

Release Schedule: Muertos

Because Halloween is fast approaching I feel that it is only right that I give the readers on wordpress a schedule on what will be uploaded in the following weeks. Currently I am working on the second draft of my longest Muertos story, in order to improve the overall quality and strengthening the characters. I cannot emphasize enough the importance of giving me feedback on my stories. Your feedback is as important as my own critical editing and I want your help making my stories better. I believe a group process might be able to give my writing its best … Continue reading Release Schedule: Muertos

I hope that I can conform to your standards, dear readers. Continue reading Update

Dias de los Muertos Lunes: pt 3

Before either brother could say anything they heard their sister calling them. The two boys exchanged knowing looks and proceeded to join their sister. The courtyard in the center of the temple always made Carter feel queasy. The area smelled of jasmine and other sweet odors that turned his stomach. The incense was always heavy and the entire area was dominated by many candles and elaborate candelabras. Tall statuary of various ethereal creatures and many armed humanoid monstrosities stood in the corners of the courtyard. These stone behemoths were eerie sentinels and always made whoever entered the courtyard uneasy. Sitting … Continue reading Dias de los Muertos Lunes: pt 3

Dias de los Muertos: Lunes part 2

Grandfather and Grandmother were extremely old school and insisted in being addressed as Grandfather and Grandmother. The ranch was their pride and joy and had been their special place for as long as Carter could remember. Ken and Carter followed Sayu and sniggered as she fumbled with the keys and even almost tripped again on her kimono. Sayu glared at them and this just made both of the brothers grin like idiots as she looked like a cute chipmunk when she glared at people. Suddenly with a loud crack that startled all three, the door flew open. An elderly woman … Continue reading Dias de los Muertos: Lunes part 2

Update

ITS OCTOBER HELLLLLLLLLLLL YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAH. Sorry for a lack of posts recently but I wanted to make sure that I had good material to write and was in the right mood.

I have gotten some great advice from other people and have a pretty good idea on how to make the story better. If you liked that story, I hope the new version will … Continue reading Update

Anime Suggestions

Recently I have been on an anime kick and I have been enjoying it immensely. I’ve always really enjoy anime and manga but my taste has always been extremely basic. This is why I have had so much fun discovering new ones and finding out some new favorites. Here are a few suggestions to help you find new good shows. If you like shows like Naruto, or Dragon Ball, try My Hero Academia. This is perfect for the superhero buff too, as it is a take on the superhero genre from the East. This is fairly standard shonen fare but … Continue reading Anime Suggestions

Feminism is good for men too

Currently, the Supreme Court fiasco surrounding Brett Kavanaugh, an extremist GOP person who wants to be on the court, has tremendous implications for the future of the United States. Conservatives have always been very good at constantly be on the attack and have been primarily very successful by taking advantage of liberals who want to be open minded and logical. However, pure rationality and logic is not what drives politics. The Republican’s drive to crush everything the government does that they personally do not like, is emotional. It is folly to think otherwise. Rationality is nothing without morality which is … Continue reading Feminism is good for men too
