#MusicMonday Kwabs’ Love + War

I got into Kwabs maybe sometime late in 2017, early 2018, probably during a YouTube binge. I say this because the first thing I heard of his was “Cheating On Me”, and I had happened to be watching the video. Since then, I’d downloaded one other song before finally just buying the whole album, and I can’t say I’ve ever really regretted it. I’ll be the first to say that I slept on Kwabs, because he lived in my playlist for a good year before I really recognized how good his music was. But now that I’m on board, I wish other people had noticed him better too.

#MusicMonday Allen Stone’s Building Balance

In a way, I’ve built a brand on Allen Stone. As early as 2012, I was covering his concerts for my  personal Tumblr as a way to practice my blogging skills. As late as 2016, I was posting my review of Radius on my music blog on Tumblr that had started out as an Allen Stone fan site

Does The Demon King Always Have to Marry a Little Girl?

You see, I‘ve been seeing this trope for years and only recently realized how weird that is. It’s not always a little girl, nor is it always a demon king, but it’s definitely always someone that can be thought of as a minor with someone else who is definitely not. More often than not, the other person tends to be at least a century old. 

Whether you are hesitant to call that pedophilia or not, I call that weird.

#T5W: Mangas and Webcomics

If you’ve been wondering what I’ve been doing for the last two years, I’ve been reading manga and webcomics for something like the last 4 months of it. The other 22 months, I’ve been asleep and at work.

This Top 5 Wednesday was supposed to be a free for all, so I’m using it to talk to you about some of the things that I’ve been reading since I’ve begun my journey with Manga and Webcomics. Some of them you may know, some of them you may not.

Tony Morrison’s The Bluest Eye

First of all, this book is nothing like what they said it was on The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Admittedly, I still haven’t watched the show yet, but my homegirl did, and the book she summarized to me was not the one that I read.

Apologies

So I begin this post with an apology, both to my readers and to a particular writer. I haven’t written a damn thing on this blog, or any of my other blogs, since I’ve come home, and I have no good reason as to why. I didn’t have writer’s block, I don’t work so much that I couldn’t make the time, and, even if I’m not reading novels, I’m still reading a ton of fanfiction. But I haven’t been writing, and that really sucks.

Earlier this year I met an author at work, and I told him that I would review his book on this blog. Honestly, it was an attempt to get myself back into the hang of it. I figured I was pretty okay at this reviewing thing, and his book shouldn’t have been a problem. Except it was. Continue reading “Apologies”

We Need to Talk About Chuck Clayton on Riverdale

Yep.

The Nerds of Color

Chuck Clayton has gone down as the first character Riverdale’s penchant for reinvention has revamped in the worst way possible. This is not the way for the show to enter its first Black History Month.

Last Month in Comics – September 2016

I have rescheduled this post more times than I needed to this week, simply because I could not bring myself to start this stack. 20 comics in one go is exhausting, and I still feel like I’m missing three titles. I usually like to have these kinds of posts done by the eighth of the month, but here it comes on the ninth, which is good enough in my book.

September was an interesting month in the Marvel universe, as everyone currently involved in Civil War II had something to say about Bruce Banner’s death. Which is fine, but I’m pretty sure this could have been said in August. Over at Archie Comics, Josie and the Pussycats makes its debut, whilst Jughead gets a new writer and Archie ends its second arc. Black Mask Studios debuts The Forevers, and DC is apparently in need of a web editor. Those blank banners aren’t going to fix themselves.

You’ll notice that the cover image for this post is from Captain America: Steve Rogers. Even though I’m not a big fan of that run, I can’t deny how cute this cover is.
