Let me just start by offering a full disclaimer—Wonder Woman was my favorite DC movie so far. I felt like Warner Brothers really pulled the stops out with this one.

It was the first show that I ever binge watched and I was hurting from lack of sleep (as I am right now recovering from Stranger Things season 2). Read More...

I wrote this for my personal blog this past Christmas. I decided to publish it here as well so that people have some insight as to why we do what we do.
There are moments in time that define you. There are events that happen in your life that shape who you are and that put an imprint so deep in your soul that you’ll carry that mark forever.
For me, that moment was Christmas 1986.
Hard to believe it was thirty years ago. Before we make it to Christmas, let me give you a little background… Read More...
