The End of an Era: Dark Angels & Pretty Freaks Podcast Takes a Break

Dark Angels and Pretty Freaks Podcast

Every Sunday morning for the past, I can’t remember how long, I have woken up, made some coffee, and listened to my friends Annaleis and Neil for a fresh episode of their couples podcast Dark Angels & Pretty Freaks.

Sometimes, it was more like mid-morning or afternoon, but always on a Sunday. It hasn’t been going on for the entire run of their show, but it has been going on for at least a few years now. Long enough to have become a tradition, a habit, something you can count on. But my Sundays are going to be different.

Lego Star Wars Clone Scout Walker – 20th Anniversary Edition – A Review

20th Anniversary LEGO Clone Scout Walker - ATRT-1

On April 1st, Lego released five sets commemorating the 20th anniversary of the Lego Star Wars theme, each set came with a new version of an old set, as well as a limited edition minifigure presented in their original guise.

These minifigs (Darth Vader, Han Solo, Princess Leia, Luke Skywalker and Lando Calrissian) are pretty much the main reason people will want to buy these sets as they each come with a commemorative stand and look pretty snazzy.

Graham Marsh’s Michael Caine: 1960s is one of the most stylish books you’ll see

Michael Caine 1960s Graham Marsh Book Review

Edith Head famously said, “You can have anything you want in life if you dress for it.” Well, then Michael Caine was destined for success. In this book, Michael Caine: 1960s by Graham Marsh, the style of the era and of the man coincide with some of the most classic photo representations of the swingin’ sixties.

Now, there aren’t a lot of words in this book, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have a lot to say. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then this book is longer than Moby Dick!

Magic: The Gathering’s Mythic Invitational Was Spectacular

Magic the Gathering Arena Mythic Invitational

This past weekend Magic The Gathering’s Mythic Invitational at PAX East was the siren’s call… Magic: The Gathering is aiming to be an esports powerhouse. With $1,000,000 Prize Pool and 64 invitees ranging from content streamers on Twitch, Magic Pro League Players, and the top 8 from Magic: The Gathering Arena, along with streaming the whole tournament across four days on Twitch, this is not a moment to be taken lightly.

Now, I’m not new to Magic, but I am new to Magic Arena. I’ve only been playing online for a few months, due to the fact that I once tried Magic Online and it felt like a more expansive version of Shandalar.

A Roast and a Toast to Bill Sweeney and 200 Episodes of The Wicked Theory Podcast

This past week The Wicked Theory Podcast celebrated its 200th Episode with the Roast of William Sweeney, Esq. And after a night of laughs and looking back, Bill dropped a bomb about changes coming to the show.

And while I am on the inside, I don’t want to speculate about the future of the show, I want to take this opportunity to say some very nice things about The Wicked Theory Podcast, but more specifically it’s host with the most, Bill Sweeney.
