Web Series That You Should Binge This Week

More and more people have decided to cancel their cable subscriptions, mostly due to the increasing number of high quality web series on streaming platforms. Of course, premium content services still do cost money, but the large catalogs of movies and original content found on those services usually can justify the expense.  The absence of commercials is also a huge bonus. The Man In The High Castle This alternate history web series imagines a world where Germany and Japan...

Things To Know On Flag Day

Flag Day may seem to be an obscure holiday, when compared to bigger holidays like the Fourth of July or Memorial Day.  That said, the history of the holiday is still rather interesting. Flag Day is observed on June 14th, which commemorates the day in 1777 when the American flag was officially adopted.  Legend has it that Betsy Ross, a seamstress from Philadelphia, was asked by George Washington personally, to sew the first flag, though no actual evidence exists proving...

Presidential Trivia More Interesting Than This Election

With the state of American politics these days, one would be forgiven for getting tired of watching the coverage. CNN talking heads who should have been sent to the cornfield years ago aside, the history of the presidents is actually rather interesting.  Here are a few tidbits for your next bar trivia night. The Election Has Twice Been Decided By The House Of Representatives There are plenty of people that aren’t particularly happy about the Electoral College or how...

Comedy Series on Netflix To Binge

While Netflix may not yet have every single movie and TV series known to man available to stream, at a little shy of ten dollars a month you can get a lot.  The dilemma is not that there’s nothing to watch, it’s that there’s almost too much, and committing to a series that ends up being a bust halfway through is more than a little disappointing. It’s a good thing to be armed with a little knowledge before selecting a series, and these are some of the...

Strange Museums For International Museum Day

There are plenty of museums out there for just about anyone, but this International Museum Day, why not go off the beaten path a little bit and check out some truly unique sights? The Dog Collar Museum Part of the already excellent museum at Leeds Castle in Kent, England, the Dog Collar Museum features a wide array of dog collars, clearly.  The collection does provide interesting insight into the collars used by the aristocracy over the ages, with the oldest collar being...

Twilight Zone Episodes You Need To Stream Right Now

“Twilight is my favorite,” said the oblivious millennial who thinks that sparkling vampires and and dime store “literature” is good reading.  In the past, before terrible books with content that could be outpaced by a Chippendales calendar became the thing that stirred the imaginations of audiences, Rod Serling brought to television one of the most cinematic and well-written scifi series of all time. We’re talking of course, about the Twilight...

Great TV To Binge This Week

TV has undergone a renaissance of sorts since Y2K, with some truly great series to watch.  The rise of “binge watching” has come with streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime, meaning that often the shows you want to watch are available in whole season chunks rather than individual episodes. Interpersonal strife over what to watch aside, these shows can be binged now, and they’re totally worth it! Better Call Saul Yes we’re aware that...

Music To Start Your Monday Properly

Starting out the week, particularly starting out a Monday, can be a chore that seems to have prescribed by the gatekeeper of a little place called “heck.”  That said, there’s plenty of music out there that you can listen to, either on your commute, or in the office (assuming you have a boss who doesn’t it necessary to keep you miserable for absolutely no reason) that will wake you up or at the very least make the day more tolerable. Just to be clear...

90s TV Shows That Deserve A Solid Revival

There’s plenty of quality TV shows out there, like Better Call Saul and others, we guess. Of course there’s lots of garbage, like the terminally unfunny Two Broke Girls, the trying too hard and on for far too long Big Bang Theory, and four out of five of the shows Comedy Central forces on its audience. That weird movie with Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds trying a wee bit too hard aside, My Cousin Vinny reruns prove that people still like things from the...

Classic American Novels To Read This Week

While there are some that have argued that the proliferation of the internet has us reading more, it can not be understated that more doesn’t necessarily equal better.  To put it in insufferable millennial terms, its like eating a whole tray of hot pockets, when you should have had a sensible kale salad. Not all health food, however, has to be a chore, sometimes it gets to be something pleasant like berries, or whatever that chia seed stuff is.  Let’s put it...
