Tea & Review: All The Birds in the Sky

All The Birds in the Sky

By: Charlie Jane Anders

I strongly suspected I would like “All the Birds in the Sky” by io9 editor Charlie Jane Anders. When I put out an open call through my FaceBook for science fiction / fantasy books I immediately checked it out the description on Amazon when someone suggested I check it out.

The story centers on Patricia Delfine and Laurence Armstead. Patricia discovers she has a strong connection to nature with her ability to talk to animals. Laurence is a tech nerd who a future genius in the making.

When the Sky Strikes – Part Two

Editor’s Note: Check out part one When the Sky Strikes 

We retreated to Harold’s lab, which was essentially the bottom floor of his apartment that used to be the buildings laundromat. He liked to claim it had the best “Dead Zone” that prevented transmissions of any kind. I was more skeptical of this because there was one time I swear I got a Facebook notification, but that years ago. Gosh, Facebook. Is it weird that I miss that?

ATLANTA is Donald Glover’s Canvas

I was really excited when I heard about FX debuting a series by Donald Glover titled: ATLANTA.

Like most people, I got introduced to Donald Glover through NBC’s  (later acquired by YAHOO!) Community from 2009-2014 before Glover left the show to work on his budding musical career (i.e Childish Gambino).

​Tea & Review: No “Glory” Days

If you grew up in the 90’s it is hard not know the lyrics to hits like Baby… One More Time, “Sometimes”, “Crazy” and “Oops, I Did it Again!” There was just something about late 90’s early – 2000’s music that basically drafted you into a ‘forever cult’ of music lovers.

I recently went to Britney’s show Piece of Me while I was in Vegas. It was a fun experience but Britney has never been someone who I considered a master of vocal range. She was never a Mariah, a Christina, or an Adele. She was Britney. Britney with the catchy beat.

When the Sky Strikes – Part One

The lights flickered in the backroom.

I wasn’t sure if we were on the verge of a blackout or an invasion. Not like that mattered now. I returned to my room and retrieved the Colt .45 on my dresser. My dad said the .45 was a weird choice for someone like me. He expected me to get one of the new fancy ‘death rays’ that had come out last year. As much as I loved technology I didn’t trust it to protect me. My .45 was not the biggest shot but it had saved me a few dozen times. It ain’t broke.
