American Horror Story: Episode 2 (AKA: Jumping 3 Sharks at Once)

WARNING: Spoilers ahead

With the second episode freshly aired, there are a few things on my mind with this season of AHS. Like… Why do these people keep living in a house which is clearly either haunted or lined in hallucinogenic mushrooms? Where did that 24-hour cop-car go when the bloody butcher knife was stuck in the front door? And where the heck is Evan Peters and Lady Gaga?!

Tea & Review: Time Out of Joint

Time Out Of Joint

By: Philip K. Dick

Written by Philip K. Dick, Time Out Of Joint was a science fiction novel from 1959 set in an ordinary American suburbia where a man with a rather repetitive, dull existence starts to notice some strange goings-on before paranoia fully sets in.

Tea & Review: Blair Witch

I was 13-years old when “The Blair Witch” was released. My parents and I went to The Bridge theatre in San Francisco. Watching Rated-R movies wasn’t a new thing but I think this was probably my first legitimate horror movie. I had no idea what to expect, but I was excited. Everyone was talking about. Everyone in school was talking about it. I was sure it was going to be an experience.

I remember my mom digging her nails digging into my leg for most of the movie. It didn’t help that the theatre was small, which only made the whole found footage, jittery camera thing so much more intense.

American Horror Story Goes Full Canon

Warning! Spoilers! 

Finally.

After a little over a week of watching nondescript commercials that managed to be as vague as possible and that utilized classic horror motifs from past horror movies: American Horror Story Season 6 finally aired.

When the credits rolled my reaction was, “What the fuck?! That’s all we get? What the fuck?”

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.

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).

Not gonna lie, I was pretty heartbroken over Glover’s decision to leave Community. My heart will never recover from losing: Troy and Abed in the Morning!

​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.
