Pseudo-Review: The Film Collossal Or That Thing In My Substance Abuse That Is Serious Childhood Drama

Warning: spoiler alert! This movie is totally worst-explained. Things I wish I could have written? Kafka's The Metamorphosis. Thornton Wilder's The Ides of March. The movie Collossal. Etc., etc. And by-the-buy, I watched Colossal last night via some stupid streaming service and I was pleasantly surprised. On that note, streaming itself isn't stupid but the …

Julius Caesar Killed With (Bad) Ideas Not Daggers–Just Like My Beloved #Americant

Coincidence? I finally (it's been on my to-do list for a while) started re-reading Thornton Wilder's Ides of March... in March? Actually I started re-reading it the last few days of March and casually finished it at the end of April. Reason? I had put it off long enough--and it was time. For I knew, …

Pseudo-Review: The Shape Of Water Not Unlike My Desire Of The Her Of All Fish

Returned from The Homeland last Monday. It was a horrible trip. It was horrible because, of the two weeks I was there, after doing some yard work for my Mom, I contracted a pretty bad skin ailment from poison ivy. In fact, as I worst-write this, two weeks after returning, I'm still itching. (But it …

Pseudo Review: Audio On The Cheap, Refurbised Used Speakers, Raspberry Pi HifiBerry Galore And Happy As A Pig In…

First pseudo-review of this sort of stuff here. Been fiddling around with audio for a few years now. About a decade ago, well into my forties, I made the mistake of purchasing a surround sound system. It was some ginormous thirty-pound, seven channel, only God knows how to setup system and after a few years …

Pseudo Book Review Of “Fire And Fury” Or If Only There Was More Space Between The Lines

Books with scary pictures of authors on inner or back covers should be avoided at all costs. I suppose that goes for worst-writers, too. At least that's what I used to tell myself--about real writers that actually get paid to write stuff. With that in mind, hats off to you Mr. Wolff. Which brings me …

Hey Comrade! My School Of Greed Is Gonna Kick Your School Of Greed’s A$$

In order to cope with the two Ms (monotony & mendacity) of growing up in Suburban Hell of my beloved #Americant, I participated--at the duress of my broken family--in two organised sport activities. One of those activities was tennis. And, if I recall correctly, I was actually ranked within the top-100 players of my state …

Pseudo Review: Followup Of Newly Confiscated 2016 12″ MacBook

The first pseudo-review is here. A third is here. How did I get here, dear worst-reader? How did I get to be the confiscating husband I've become? And how did I get to this place I'm at where being overwhelmed w/ tech gadgets could be so frustrating? You know, dear worst-reader, as a useless-eater, as …

Pseudo Review: RasPlex + Hifiberry And Some Serious Audio On The Cheap

  Kinda follow-up, update to this post here. More pseudo-review of audio equipment here. Can a non-audiophile still hear great audio? Can a music-lover of old music still get some jams through his/her head in these digital times without breaking the bank? Do those guys that spend all that money as "audiophiles" give you the …
