Books for Breakfast #88

Book Reviews

Invincible Compendiums + Comics by Robert Kirkman & Carry On by Rainbow Rowell First off, I want to start this review by saying: I never really read superhero comics before. When I was little, I liked Superman and Batman, but mainly because of stuff on TV, and the fact that my dad always told me a Batman & Robin story before bed, ones that he'd make up about them, and…

Fictional Fridays #20 – An Old Favorite

Life

This time in my life seems to be all about nostalgia. Getting ready to move had me cleaning out every nook and cranny, looking back on things, making bucket lists, and realizing that I might have driven on some roads for the last time, or gone to certain places for the last time. It's weird to think about, seriously! So, in honor of looking back and remembering things. I'm looking…

Fictional Fridays #12 – Top 5 Animes

Life

This time I'm going to talk about my most recent favorite animes. If I list a general top five, it's just going to be the ones that everyone has already told you to watch, or the classics like FMA: Brotherhood, Cowboy Bebop, Gurren Lagann, etc. So instead I'm going to limit myself to animes that came out in the last two years, which includes ones that are currently airing. This…

The Vinyl Shrine #1: Cassadaga

Posts by Alex

Hello everyone and welcome to the new and improved music series, The Vinyl Shrine! I mentioned in the past that I didn't want to force myself to write about obscure music all the time because a lot of what many would call "mainstream music" is too good to not share with you all! So we're going to try out a new format for a while and see how it goes.…

Kawaii Box Review!

Blogging

Today I'm reviewing Kawaii Box, which is a super cute monthly subscription box!  It's a box filled with hand-picked kawaii items from Japan and Korea! The boxes are shipped in the beginning of each month and the shipping is absolutely free, anywhere on the planet!  There is a shop not too far from my house called Kawaii actually, and it sells super cute stuff just like what I got in…

Defining Lyric: “I saw a bridge, it pieced together two unlikely hearts. I thought it must…

Music You’ve Been Missing #6

Posts by Alex

So at this point, I feel like I should mention that all of these albums that I write about are available to stream on Spotify, which means they’re likely also on Bandcamp, Soundcloud, LastFM, or really anything. (I recently bought a Windows 8 loaded laptop, and found that the music streaming service that comes with it has almost the exact same catalogue available as Spotify which is neat! But anyway…) …

Music You’ve Been Missing #5

How Long You’ve Been Missing Out: 6 Years (Released February 2008) The Album in One Sentence: Classic Mountain Goats style refined by the addition of drummer Jon Wurster and a small string section. Defining Lyric: “And flaming swords may guard the Garden of Eden, But we consulted maps from earlier days, Dead languages on our tongues, Holding on to our last hope” – San Bernardino So I discovered The Mountain Goats late…
