Life outside of the Navy (5 Years Running)

It’s been 5 years since I’ve worn a naval uniform. Around my office, the one question that generally gets asked when people see me is whether or not I miss being in. My answer is no, but that doesn’t mean I regret my time in the Navy, not by any means, but the type of…

Recommending Counterpart (2018)

I am huge fan of spy thrillers, videogames, movies, novels, doesn’t matter, if it falls under that genre, I am more than down to give it a try.  Which is why when Counterpart was announced by Starz, it had already piqued my interest.  A show tinkering with an alternate universe that features an aging protagonist…

Transparency and Customer Service

I recently opened up a twitter account to catch up on my interests.  As a Supply Chain Management Graduate Student, I’ve learned just how valuable being transparent is in the digital age.  With the current advancements in technology and the surge of social media it is imperative that a business, regardless of the industry, be…

Lets Talk: The Problem with Videogame Movie Adaptations

Name a good videogame movie. Some will point toward Final Fantasy The Spirits Within, others will point to the recently released Tomb Raider starring Alicia Vikander.  The only issue with this is, the new Tomb Raider film is just ok.  It’s a serviceable action film that features some pretty big set pieces, but is ultimately…

Crossovers that Work: Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

Crossovers like Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle shouldn’t work. Not because Mario and Rabbids couldn’t coexist. But because the game is a strategy RPG in the vein of X-COM. Sufficed to say, it surprisingly works. Kingdom Battle isn’t just a good game, but a great game. If there was ever an X-COM game for casual…

Case Keenum and the Denver Broncos

News broke earlier today that Case Keenum will be signing with the Denver Broncos.  The deal is reported for two years and 18 million per year. Not to be a downer, but this feels like a “meh” signing. Case Keenum played well last year.   He is obviously an upgrade to the carousel of current…

Revisiting the Blade Trilogy

It wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows for Marvel in the 80’s and 90’s. Every attempt at adapting one of their properties into a movie or television show failed. They weren’t just bad, they were practically parodies of respected comics. Go ahead and take a gander at the Fantastic Four or Captain America, both were just…

Underrated and underappreciated: Justified (2010-2015)

No one would blame you if you never got around to watching Justified.  There were far more popular shows on TV, such as Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, and Game of Thrones.  Regardless of its lack of popularity, Justified was simply awesome.  The writing was sharp, the character diverse and interesting, and it never produced…

The Cleveland Browns push for relevancy

0-16 in 2017. 1-31 in the past two seasons. No team has been more inept in the past 20 years than the Cleveland Browns.  They have had one winning season in the past 15 years.  One.  Last season started with optimism.  The draft class at first glance for the Browns was solid; Myles Garrett, Jabrill…
