Colonial Club at the Majestic Colonial in Punta Cana, DR review, or “Donde esta leche de soya?”


We attended a wedding at the Majestic Colonial Result in Punta Cana, Playa Bávaro, Dominican Republic.  This was my first experience at an all inclusive hotel and my second trip to a Caribbean Island, so I’m something at a novice at the experience, but here’s what I learned, both the good and the bad.  Read the rest of this entry

Veep: it’s like West Wing, but with 10 times the dicks

I’m just getting up to speed on Veep, a four season comedy on HBO.  I have a few episodes left to catch up on, but I don’t have any trouble saying that this one will live on in my heart long after it’s over. I just have one issue with the show… Read the rest of this entry

Today’s review of Primary Colors is a special guest blog written by Contemporary Teenager.  Enjoy!  ~jamie

So hi.  Uhm, I watched this movie on the TV in the living room (instead of on my phone like a normal person) with my stupid parents and it was called Primary Colors and I think it was supposed to be educational or something.  Read the rest of this entry

Earth overreacts to Batman themed railroad photo shoot on railroad tracks


This is officially the dumbest thing people have been outraged by so far in 2015.  Yeah, I know – this is a trope from old silent movies, not from Batman! Jeez!
Also, that lady’s clothes are ruined. (PRO TIP:  train tracks are dirty as f@ck.)

5 Reasons Jon Snow will return in Game of Thrones Season 6


The Death of Jon Snow on Game of Thrones’ Season 5 finale “Mother’s Mercy” has touched off memorials, angry hash tags and fan theories on how he could return to the show.  I don’t necessarily want or need him to come back, but the path to Jon Snow’s resurrection is clear  and foreshadowed throughout the show.  Read the rest of this entry

5 Things We Learned From Season 5 of Game of Thrones that tell us who will die in Season 6 (and other thoughts)

Like the show itself, my reactions to Season 5 and predictions for Season 6 are something of a mess.  Game of Thrones has used the last 10 episodes to set the stage of its darkest hour, but it has also inadvertently made some audience members swear off the show following the rape of Sansa Stark and the burning alive of little Shireen Baratheon.  Still, the show moves forward, so here are 5 Things We Learned From Season 5 of Game of Thrones that tell us who will die in Season 6 as well as some other thoughts.  Read the rest of this entry

Across the Universe movie review

PRO TIP:  Do not listen to this man’s story.

The producers of Across the Universe made a bet that nostalgia would be enough to make a profit on their investment… and they lost.  Once you watch the movie, it’s easy to see where they went wrong.  (Spoiler alert:  EVERYWHERE!)  Read the rest of this entry
