That doesn’t seem to bother author Rick Riordan though, because he has been very outspoken about his hate for the movies, and he says the upcoming Disney+ series will not follow that same path of d...

Author Rick Riordan Expresses Dislike for Percy Jackson Films

Author Rick Riordan Expresses Dislike for Percy Jackson Films As fans of the Percy Jackson series of novels will attest, the two film adaptations were awful. Not only did they fail to capture the spirit, heart, and cleverness of the books, but they turned Pierce Brosnan into a shirtless Centaur. As it turns out, fans aren’t alone in their disdain for the film — the author of the novels, Rick Riordan, isn’t fond of them either. Riordan revealed as much via Twitter ...

Disney Christmas Books

I received these books to help facilitate my review. There is nothing better than sitting by the Christmas tree and reading books with my kids.  This year Disney has some great Christmas books to choose from! Santa Bruce Bruce is a lot of things.

But that doesn’t stop the whole forest from lining up to give him their Christmas wishes when he becomes the victim of mistaken identity—a...

Competing for California’s biggest pension-spiking scam

Pension-outrage wise, it’s pretty hard to top the story that the new LAPD chief scammed the system by “retiring” for a month and thus pocketed a cool $1.27 million lump sum before returning to work. But that’s precisely what the Los Angeles Times this week reported that Los Angeles police Chief Michel Moore did — because he could.
