Sorry for the rant, but I spent a fair amount of the day reminiscing about significant events in my life, and one of the ones that my mind spent some time on recently was my daughter’s kindergarten graduation, and play. I don’t remember all of the details of the play but a strong memory was that it was adorable and that my daughter did an excellent job with her lines. After everything that was done, we spent the rest of the day together just having a good time. One of the places we went to was a local park that was built back in the… well, it was around back when I was her age, and my daughter loves it, especially the tire swing. I remember as we came close to the park I asked her if she knew where we were, and as soon as she could see the tops of the playground’s structures the joy in her voice was evident as she cried out, “We’re at the tire wheel park.”..

Avengers: Infinity War

Ever since Iron Man came to the big screen in 2008, Marvel Studios has been building to Avengers Infinity Wars and its next installment Avengers 4. This past weekend I left the theater, and I was blown away by the breadth of the film. Given that I didn’t see the movie on opening weekend, I was thankful that I had managed to not hear anything about the movie before I walked into the theater. That said, I had a pretty good idea of what was going to happen, the web is always flooded with various rumors about upcoming movies it especially seems that Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) rumors are particularly rampant...

The Wrath of the Great Guilds

After reading the rest of the Pillars of Creation series, I picked up the last installment with great eagerness. From Mage Alain’s vision in the first book to the Master Mechanic Marie’s dread of her ultimate destination throughout the series to the end of the Servants of the Storm, I had a rough idea of what the story was going to be. As I read each page my hope that I would get a satisfying conclusion to the series grew and grew, and while the series was ended with a satisfactory completion, it did create another new thread that would be continued in another series, The Legacy Of Dragons...

Black Panther

The most important thing when I think about a story is the quality of the story itself, it doesn’t matter what form the story is told in. If the story is not solid, then it will not hold my interest. Now Marvel Studios has been putting out multiple movies every year ever since Iron Man back in 2008 and they have been building up to Avengers Infinity War with the characters they have the rights to use. One of the newer characters added to the stable of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is Black Panther. The role was introduced to the MCU in Captain America Civil War with the death of his father centering around his revenge...

The Servants of the Storm

When I cracked open the fifth installment of the Pillars of Reality series I was hoping to get a satisfying conclusion that The Pirates of Pacta Servanda did not give me. Hiwever I did not get that satisfying conclusion I had been looking for with the fourth installment. Knowing that there was one more book in the series, I’m hopful that he wrapps up all of the loose threads, but that will be addressed once I complete the last beek in the series...
