Demon Part 7

Editor’s Note: If you haven’t caught up check out Part 1 Part 2Part 3,  Part 4,  Part 5, Part 6 of Demon

Kallan sits at her desk filling out paperwork for other case files for the first time in weeks.  Paperwork, as mundane as it, can be soothing.  When the brain power needed, is to make sure that the correct words filled in the correct spots.  Followed by a summary of the actions taken during the case. Boring but effective.

Kallan gets the summons a day before Jim’s visit. The letter has the traditional wax seal of the council.  It is written on thick paper making the letter feel incredibly heavy.  Now that the council has allowed the duel, it is as good as being bound to it.  There are few things that can cancel a duel.

Review & Podcast: Doctor Strange – Magic & Whitewashing

When I first heard that a Doctor Strange movie was in the works my first reaction was: “Isn’t he that wizard?”  

I didn’t know anything substantial about Doctor Strange beyond that.  So I began to research and by the end, I was muttering, “Can they even make a decent movie from that?”  Because Doctor Strange is mind-trippy.  To pull it off in comic book form where our imaginations can fill in the blank spots is one thing.  To pull if off on screen is a different matter.

The hallway leading from the offices to the council room is not a long one. Kallan is not sure if this is a good or bad thing.  With her report in her hand, she pushes through the double doors.  It is always disorienting going into the council room, no matter how many times she does it.

Review: Luke Cage: Episode 2- Code of the Streets

Editor’s Note: This the continuation of our look at the Marvel’s Luke Cage of Netflix and if you haven’t, check out Episode 1.

In the beginning of this episode, we see the opening scene is a time jump.  Luke is standing in the dark looking at a building in Harlem. Then a kid holding gun and points it at the back of Luke’s head.  He demands the reason for his presence.  Luke ends up telling the kid “I’ve had a long day. I am tired.”  With those statements, we know the episode is going to be intense.  Plus, with a title Code of the Streets, there is a slim chance that this episode is not going to end in pain.

Demon – Part 4

The sun turns the world from night into day. Colors turn from a cool gray-purple to a warm pink-orange of the beginning day. Kallan is valiant and trying not to drown in her tea or face plant into her breakfast. It is a waste of a meal if she did and mornings are never easy on Kallan.

Tea & Fury: Tim Burton and the Facade of Outcasts

When I first heard about Tim Burton’s comments  on diversity in film on the website Bustle, to say I was a little angry might have been putting it lightly. Because as I stewed over his words something I like to call, Tea and Fury was born (see podcast above.).

Demon – Part 3

Editor’s Note: If you haven’t caught up check out Part 1 and Part 2 of Demon.

Kallan parks her old moss-green car in the back lot of an old office building.  Converted from offices to apartments, it still has that old world charm and character.  She takes the elevator to the top floor and then a private stairwell to the rooftop apartment.  The apartment is nestled in a large garden; lush and green with a myriad of plants, flowers, and trees.  It is jarring compared to the city that surrounds it, as if displace from a land of rolling hills.  Luck was very kind to her when she found this place and Kallan burned all the Gardenias she had on hand in thanks.  Continue reading Demon – Part 3
