Life is Strange: Before the Storm: Episode 3: Hell is Empty

Words fail me… as is customary with this series. And as always, the statements to follow will not be devoid of spoilers. I always want to ask: what are they saying exactly? What is the message behind the scenarios they are portraying? There’s a deliberate purpose behind almost every action in a work of art […]

The In-game Title Screen

I admit, this series was a little hard for me to appreciate at first. It is a significant departure from the initial storyline which bended reality and had a more superhero feel to the whole thing. In Life is Strange: Before the Storm, you are immersed in real life. It was hard for me to […]

Beautiful cinematography

For those of us greatly affected by the first series, that is to say that the first series had a great effect on us, it has been with equally great anticipation that we have awaited Life is Strange: Before the Storm, Episode 1: Awake.

The scenarios that one experiences in this game […]

An obese woman talks to a friend about unfair medical treatment

I was very privileged to have a brief Twitter conversation with Alli Kirkham, one of the many thoughtful, talented, and concerned contributors at Everyday Feminism. It was my first visit to that site, as I had been informed of the Politically Incorrect Man comic after seeing it reviewed by the Amazing Atheist. Like most things […]

Thoughtful Dissent in Obergefell v. Hodges

Politics
Updated:

Like all Supreme Court opinions, the Obergefell v. Hodges case is a required romp. Like the Windsor case, I gather that Kennedy was the author in order to give the decision a more neutral voice, and the majority opinion was intentionally much shorter than the dissent following. I think it was a good call to […]

The Infallible

Religion, Social Issues

The Pope’s recent words about his view on homosexuality were, as always, confusing. He attempts to be inclusive by saying that he is not the one to judge anyone who identifies as gay. The message from the Catholic Church is to condemn the acts of homosexuality but not the person, very much like the “hate […]
