Picking Up by Robin Nagle

How much time do you think about your trash? The garbage you put out on the street, the trash you throw into city wastebaskets, and (sadly) for some of you out there, the trash that you litter on the street. Not much right? We only really seem to think about it when it’s negatively affecting […]

Teen Wolf is Back!

The title of MTV’s hit show Teen Wolf is embarrassing. As was the cover photo that Netflix chose, before they removed the show from their libraries (much to the dismay of fans if the comment section is indicative of anything).

Since I love heroes who have a bit of darkness within them and have to challenge themselves (in meaningful ways) to overcome their darkness and […]

Olympus Has Fallen = A Must See

I’m not sure what rock I was successfully living under during the month of March but somehow Olympus Has Fallen┬ácompletely snuck past my radar. It was not until I was catching up on some of the shows recorded on my DVR that I saw a preview for this film. What I saw was so riveting […]
