It’s the smartest of times; it’s the dumbest of times. It is the time for reason; it is the time for irrational choices. It’s the time to cram makeup work; it’s the time to take the loss and move on. It is the time for friends; is is the time for yourself. It’s May. It’s the end:...

The movie had a lot of interesting acting choices, some I liked, and some I didn’t. Jesse Eisenberg was great as Lex Luther, and Amy Adams was good as Lois Lane. I wasn’t...

  Book: Little Brother Author: Cory Doctorow (Yes, that one.) Genre: Could be argued as realistic fiction, but it diverges from the real world in 2007-ish. (If I may just mention the PATRIOT Act II?) If pressed I’d describe it as very realistic sci fi that could happen within the next...
