A Quick Apology to You

Posted by Leah on 1/21/2018 10:59:34 AM

        Hi! Thank you for visiting my website. I hope, for the most part, you enjoy it.
 
        I just wanted to let you know that I’m sorry. I’m sorry I haven’t been posting many new reviews, and I’m sorry that the most recent “news” item is from November. That’s certainly not the way I want things to be, and I hope to have them back to somewhat normal within the next month.
 
        As happens from time to time, life has gotten in the way lately. I’ve had more health issues than I could’ve anticipated, which has kept me from getting on the computer much. Plus my dog has been ...

6th Annual Rhode Island Comic Con is in the Books

Posted by Leah on 11/20/2017 11:31:31 AM

        Initially it had been my hope to spend the entire 3-day weekend at Rhode Island Comic Con, interviewing celebrities and checking things out, but a family emergency came up at the last minute. In the final days leading up to the start of it I wasn’t sure I’d be able to go at all, but luckily I was able to squeeze one day out. That day was Saturday: the busiest and most crowded day of the three.
 
        Everything I’d looked at about the event before attending said that the doors didn’t open until 10 am. Rhode Island is usually close to a three hour drive for me, so I left my ...

Posted by Leah on 11/6/2017 11:37:53 AM

        Friday November 10th marks the start of the 2017 Rhode Island Comic Con in Providence, and I’ve honestly never been as excited to attend an event as I am for this one. Now I know…I can already hear you saying, “But Leah! You’ve said over and over how you’re not really a fan of comic books, or superheroes. Why on earth would you attend a comic con?” I understand your confusion, really I do, but let me explain…
 
        While at its heart Rhode Island Comic Con is about comic books and the superheroes in them, there’s more to the show than just that. For starters, take a look a...

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

        From the first seconds of the first trailer I knew this film was one I had to see. The three main cast members alone were enough to hook me: Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson and Sam Rockwell? What’s not to like with a cast like that? Not...

Life After Ex

        After what can only be described as an extensive and lengthy fight, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on June 26, 2015 to legalize same-sex marriage in all 50 states. This victory was hard fought, and had more back and forth than the world reco...

The Animation Show of Shows

        Anyone who spends any amount of time on my website will quickly realize what a fan of animation I am. It doesn’t matter to me if it’s hand drawn, computer done, puppets, stop motion or any other form, I feel that animation as a story telli...

Gunderson's

        Just the thought of ever having a rare disease scares me. Think about it: the term alone, at face value means that whatever the affliction is is so new it barely has a name, never mind a cure. Of course that means that there’s not y...

It

        I’ve been a fan of Stephen King’s work almost as long as I’ve been alive. From watching The Shining at a friend’s house at age 3 and a half, to doing a book report on Christine in 5h grade, to tearing through as many of his bo...
