My 10 Favorite X-Men Storylines From The Comics

Before Brian Michael Bendis showed me the awesomeness of his New Avengers lineup in 2004, my ride-or-die Marvel team was The X-Men. I’d been an avid reader of their comics since I rediscovered them in the mid-90s. Other team books didn’t have the outrageous plotlines and inner-team soap opera drama. And their rogues gallery was second to none. Recently, with the state of comics not being in a great place, I’ve been going back and revisiting a lot of X-Men comics and am amazed that the stories still have a great impact… even on my 2nd and 3rd read-thoughts. Want to…

Favorite Wrestler Theme Songs: Swerve Strickland

Swerve Strickland has been on my wrestling radar since he first appeared on NXT. Unfortunately, they didn't know what to do with him so his career had a lot of starts and stops. Eventually, WWE let him go and he showed up in AEW, where (even though it took a little time) he got his chance to shine. He was slowly making waves until he started using the remix to a rap song he previously recorded called "Big Pressure". Add his manager Prince Nana's iconic dance during the entrance, and all eyes fell on Swerve. He's making the most of…

Lightning Strikes Twice. Fallout Is Another Excellent Video Game Adaptation

You can tell an iconic show by the opening scene of its premiere episode. It sets the tone and anticipation for what's to come. The Walking Dead had Rick Grimes' first encounter with a zombie, having to shoot a dead little girl in the head. The Last of Us had the picture-perfect recreation of the video game's death of Sara Miller. And now, we have the 'perfect' opening scene of nuclear bombs dropping on Los Angeles that sets the tone for Fallout. The 'oh shit' wasn't the effect of the bombs dropping, but the look on Cooper's daughter's face witnessing…

Joint of The Moment: “Went Diamond” by Roc Marciano

An MC and producer from New York City's tradition-rich Long Island, Roc Marciano is well-respected for his moody, claustrophobic beats and stream-of-consciousness, heavily stylized lyrics. Briefly affiliated with Flipmode Squad early in his career, he formed the short-lived crew the U.N. during the early 2000s before going solo, earning massive acclaim for his self-produced 2010 full-length Marcberg. Collaborating with rappers and producers like Q-Tip, Ka, and Action Bronson, subsequent releases such as 2013's Marci Beaucoup and 2018's RR2: The Bitter Dose featured more experimental production as well as sharper lyricism. Numerous collaborations appeared during the early 2020s, including 2022's The Elephant…
