Into the Badlands Season 2 Finale: I’m still angry 2

It’s been two days, and I’m still furious at Into the Badlands. As usual when I’m writing about this show, there’s going to be a ton of spoilers. The last two episodes have kind of run together in my head, I think because in all honesty, not that much happened in the final episode. A ...

8 Things I Liked About Fate of the Furious

Finally I got to see this movie. And it was everything advertised on the tin, bigger and sillier and more explodey than Furious 7. These have now become my favorite superhero movies. Sorry Marvel. But while none of Dom’s team runs around in colorful spandex, there’s absolutely no pretense at them being ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances. ...

Write Every Day

And lo, there is another writer on a fairly well-trafficked site who has chosen to pull down their trousers and show the internet their ass in an effort to give new writers a complex about if they’re doing it “right.” Because if you don’t write every day, you’re not a real writer, apparently. Well, as ...

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and the New Family 1

I liked Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 better than the first GotG movie, which I already liked a heck of a lot. It’s fun, it’s weird, it’s unabashedly space opera. It’s also got a lot of payoff for some emotional stuff that got set up in the first movie, particularly the relationship with Peter Quill ...

Into the Badlands Season 2, Episodes 1-6

I meant to write about episodes 1-3 a couple weeks ago when I actually watched them, but then I got sidetracked with some editing. So we’re just going to talk about the first six episodes in one big wad. Spoilers included. So many spoilers. Like sprinkles on your donut. Season 2 starts with a time ...

Hugo Category Thinking, Best Editor Edition 3

So, Best Editor, Long Form. I’ve been hearing a lot about this category this year. Honestly, when I’m wearing my reader hat, it’s a category I don’t often vote in because I have no idea what any of the editors have done unless someone’s told me. I’ve also noticed it’s a category that tends to ...

Into the Badlands: Episodes 4-6

Okay, first off, WHY DID NO ONE TELL ME THAT THE FIRST SEASON IS ONLY SIX EPISODES.I would have, I don’t know, slowed my binge down slightly. Just watched two episodes a night instead of three. BUT FINE. At least it looks like I’ll be able to catch up into season 2 with the AMC ...

Into the Badlands: Episodes 1-3 1

In the massive backlash about the unnecessary whiteness of Netflix’s Iron Fist and then the reviews coming in to highlight that it’s apparently boring as shit and is full of lazy martial arts suck, I’ve been hearing a lot about Into the Badlands. The first season was available on Netflix, so I decided what the ...

FAQ: Will there be a sequel?

FAQ: Will there be a sequel?
In case you didn’t notice… I HAVE A BOOK OUT AAAAAAAAAAA And a lot of wonderful, intelligent, incredibly good-looking people with impeccable taste have been asking me if there will be a sequel. And the answer is… YES! As a matter of fact, funny story, but I literally typed “THE END” on the rough draft ...

Things I remember from the strike 2

I grew up in a union house. My dad was a chief steward in the CWA (local 7750). I remember there being one strike (and the threat of others) when I was growing up. Looking at the CWA history, I’m pretty sure this is what I remember: 1986: Post Divestiture Bargaining 1986 presented CWA with ...
