So, just like with Loot Crate, I’m posting the unboxing video I did with a short summary of my impressions of this month’s Marvel Collector Corps box.

The Book Wyrm: Daniel Kine’s Up Nights
Kerouac’s On the Road for the jaded 2010’s

And now for another book review, nerds! This time, Daniel Kine’s Up Nights from Ooligan Press is on the slate. As always, I’ll issue my normal disclaimers: I’m a student who is in the Book Publishing program at Portland State University; this means that I’m a part of the publishing company that made this book.

Jon Stewart: The End of an Era

So, I just finished watching the final episode of Jon Stewart’s run on The Daily Show. “Disheartened” is about as close as I can get to coming up with a vocabulary word for how I feel right now. The episode, which managed to bring on pretty much every correspondent the show has ever had made

We also talk about Magic: The Gathering, Smash Up, Heroes of the Storm, and some other games, too. Enjoy! Bonus Link: I gave a very quickie review of Marvel’s Ant-Man at
