Phantasy Star Online 2: Episode Oracle Episode 12 Impression

On this episode, Xiao sends Ash and Sarah to investigate an abandoned lab. Later, Ash travels back in time to save Ulc.I'm really glad this anime adaption isn't limited to 12 episodes, but 25 episodes instead because the main plot against Luther is getting much more interesting (plus, story-wise, it's still way better than first season adaptation). Anyway, it was cool to see Ash and Sarah investigate a lab. Also, the time travel plot for Ulc's rescue is nice. Other than that, they revealed more ...

‘His Dark Materials’ Walks Into the Light With Its Season 1 Finale ‘Betrayal’

Well, this is it folks. We have come to the end of the first season of His Dark Materials. It’s been a journey full of ups and downs as the HBO fantasy series attempted to forge its own identity and grapple with reading ahead. And while it’s uncertain whether His Dark Materials was able to set itself apart from the rest of the prestige fantasy series pack, it was at least interesting and — at-times — outright weird. But the final episode of season 1, “Betrayal,” is the turning point for the ser...

Sword Art Online: Alicization - War of Underworld Episode 11 Impression

On this episode, the Asuna and the Integrity Knights stops the enemy from using ropes to cross. Meanwhile, Yui detects the coming enemy American player reinforcements and attempts to gather another player army to counter them. The rope crossing battle between the Integrity Knights and Dark Territory forces is pretty nice. Also, seeing the new main plot development for enemy reinforcements and ally reinforcements because of Yui is awesome. Other than that, I hope the ally reinforcements can come...

Battle #64 - Jack Kirby art & cover

Jack Kirby Battle v1 #64, 1959 - On the tiny island of Quemoy, battle rages between Communist China and US forces. Jack Kirby's layouts are straightforward, but each panel pulses with activity. The destructive barrage also extends to the cover, where Kirby delivers a chaotic yet perfectly balanced design. Interestingly, the last panel on page 2 seems to have been redrawn, perhaps by the inker? [Author: Unknown]

Eddie Murphy’s Return To SNL Was A Holiday Miracle

YouTube/NBC This entire episode had me ho-ho-howling (forgive me) from start to finish Hyping something up for yourself, whether it’s a concert or an upcoming movie or even the opening of a new restaurant, can be a dangerous trap to fall into — nothing sucks more than being disappointed by something you’ve been really excited for. So for that reason I was trying to stay relatively cool about Eddie Murphy’s highly anticipated return to SNL, which, lemme tell you, was not an easy task. And...

Citing “three law enforcement sources,” The Miami Herald is reporting that agents were tipped off that “contraband” (i.e. drugs and/or illegal weapons) were being transported on Weezy’s private plane, and as of Monday afternoon (Dec. 23), authorities were in the process of obtaining a search warrant from a Miami federal judge.

‘Vampire Chronicles’ Dead at Hulu, But Could Be Resurrected Elsewhere

The Vampire Chronicles is going to have to find itself a new crypt. Anne Rice was originally working to adapt her best-selling books into a series at Hulu, but that’s no longer happening. Now, Rice and her team are shopping the property around for a new home. At one point, Bryan Fuller was set to work on the show, but eventually parted ways.

‘The Office’ Creator Greg Daniels Has an Idea for a Reboot, Cast Members Mixed on Returning

The Office might be re-opening its doors. In the era of TV reboots and remakes — and when The Office is one of the most popular streaming properties — it’s no surprise that NBC is looking back fondly at its beloved Emmy-winning sitcom. Chatter about The Office reboot has been ongoing since last year, but with its stars onto bigger things, it seemed unlikely. But an intriguing new development comes from series creator Greg Daniels, who may have “an idea” for The Office reboot. In an interview...

The Best Female-Directed Movies of the Decade

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.) The 2010s were a banner decade for female directors. Despite the still abysmally low number of women working behind the camera, women directors have made significant strides in Hollywood and across the globe, earning as much or even more acclaim — and now, as much money — as their male counterparts. In just the past decade, which came off of Kathryn Bigelow becoming the first woman to win the Academy Award for Best Director, Greta Gerwig ...

Whether You Love or Hate ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’, J.J. Abrams Diplomatically Says You’re Right

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is proving to be no less divisive than Star Wars: The Last Jedi. There are those who love this movie as both a finale to this new trilogy and the entire Skywalker saga, largely thanks to the nostalgic beats that bring it all together in a way that pulls at your heartstrings. But there are also those who can’t get over the convoluted, expository ridden story that feels like J.J. Abrams is biting off way more than he can chew and ignoring previous developments in ...

No #hamradio post today. I’m baking!

No amateur radio blog post today. I’m doing some Christmas baking. Below, are two Slovak specialties: roski and butki (nut and poppyseed rolls).

My mother was a roski genius, and my sister, Annette, has become our family’s nut roll expert. I’m quite happy with my roski. They’re not like my mother’s, though. they have a flakier, more puffy pastry. I’m less happy with the nut ro...

The 10 Biggest and Best Comeback Films and TV Shows of the Decade

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.) As the saying goes, everyone loves a comeback. The 2010s saw a number of creative entities emerge from the wilderness to enjoy renewed artistic credibility onscreen. There were so many comeback stories, actually, that this mere list of ten is guaranteed to smack of exclusions. FX’s The People v O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, for instance, revived interest in the trial of the century while serving as a soft comeback for several actors...

The Dead Speak! Listen to Emperor Palpatine’s Mysterious Broadcast from ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’

The opening crawls of Star Wars movies have traditionally caught audiences up on the passage of time between films. That proved to be rather unnecessary between The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi since we pick up pretty much immediately after the end of the first installment of the new trilogy. But since roughly a year has passed in-universe between The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker, we have some catching up to do, and the opening crawl has to do some heavy lifting before it throws us in...

New ‘New Mutants’ Trailer Coming in January, Implying the Movie Might Actually Be Released Some Day

Remember The New Mutants? The horror-tinged X-Men spin-off was supposed to open in theaters in 2018, back before Fox became the property of Disney. Since then, the film has shuffled around several times, with many coming to believe the Josh Boone-directed pic would never see the light of day.
