TV Rewind: The Originals – “Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea”

The Search Okay. So, everything seemed to be going good. Klaus was searching for Hayley. Freya and Hope were spending some quality time together.

Movie Review: Avengers – Infinity War (Spoiler Free!)

I never considered myself a fan of superhero movies. I’d been a firm believer that those blockbuster films were overrated. I truly thought I had no ties to the genre, whatsoever. Now, I’ve realized that is a complete lie. I love superhero movies, I always have. I didn’t want to admit it to myself. I’d…

The Decline of FanFiction

I was in high school when I first learned about fanfiction.

TV Rewind: The Originals – “One Wrong Turn on Bourbon”

Nothing But Trouble Well, that was. . . unexpected. We all thought Hope was such a nice girl; a bit rebellious, perhaps. I’d never thought she’d do this. I mean, kidnapping her own [spoiler]? What a witch! Last night’s episode of The Originals was surprising, to say the least, but still fell short of the…

Download This! (Late-Night Edition)

I’m at the point in my life where I rarely listen to the radio. When I do, I only listen to the classic rock station, anyway. I have no idea what singles are at the top of the chart. I have no idea which artists are in demand. It’s sad, I know. Ever since iTunes…

TV Rewind: The Originals – “Where You Left Your Heart”

Family Drama Hi. *waves* Remember me? I’m the one who used to write those awesome Vampire Diaries recaps. It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Actually, it’s only been a year since the show ended, but it’s been three years since I last wrote about Mystic Falls. Hard to believe, right? It feels like yesterday we…

Girl, Put Your Records On

These days, when you’re strolling down the aisles of your favorite stores, you’ve probably seen something that seems just a little bit out-of-place.
