So here’s the final entry, a bit of a catch-all encompassing everything from an excellent sleeper of the gaming industry to a recently released reissue of another Decadent author...and several streaming TV series of note.

So without any further frippery or fussing and flitting about…shall we? Continue reading

And here’s the third of what has turned out to be no less than FOUR collections of film reviews posted over at the Facebook page immediately after viewing…and boy, there are some doozys in there.

Pour yourself a stiff drink, light one up if you’d rather, and prepare yourselves for at least three of the most abominable atrocities Disney’s Marvel takeover has foisted upon an unsuspecting viewing audience to date…

…and realize Morbius is by far the BEST of the three in question.

Shall we, then?

Hey, there!

Kicking off a busy week, here’s a fresh off the grill serving of Roundup Reviews. And a few big budget, glossy power metal/AOR acts aside, it’s filled with the sort of doomy, smoke ’em if you got ’em stuff that helps keep your head straight in crazy times.

And so, with the net finally closing in on an unbelievably stupid would-be mob boss cum dictator and his enablers and justice finally on the horizon, what does his brainless fanboy contingent do when faced with the reality of just who this man always was, and how deluded their literal worship of him is?

In case you managed to miss all the good news lately on several fronts…looks like the sun may finally be getting a chance to shine after five long years of misery and oppression from forces inimical to the continuance of the human race (not to mention the planet itself.)
