Disappointing Nostalgia: Iron Maiden’s “Ed Hunter” Video Game

When I was a kid, I remember the excitement from playing Iron Maiden’sEd Hunter” and the rush from seeing Eddie pop in and out of my computer screen while shooting up all the bad guys. However, I never finished the game while Windows 95 was still a thing. I only made it through the first three levels before it was time for bed.

Willie Watson…”Gallows Pole”

There’s few artists that come along and truly know how to make a cover of a song their own. With the long lineage of traditional American songs, it’s sometimes hard to not play it completely straight. The incredible talents of Willie Watson however tell a much different story. One that you feel he might relate to…

The Paris Catacombs: A Different Look

Parisian History Also Lies Below

Halloween 2018…I’m Not Mad, Just Disappointed

It’s Good, But Not Great…

With all of the different “explanations” and “endings” that plague the movies as well, I was really rooting for the final fight between Laurie Strode and the mythical Michael Myers. However, sadly, 2018’s Halloween missed the mark. SPOILERS AHEAD!! You have been warned. Continue reading Halloween 2018…I’m Not Mad, Just Disappointed
