Talking Out The Dead: “Here’s Not Here”

TWD_604_GP_0806_0064-1200x801

Thomas Crawford: The tale of Morgan. We see how Morgan went from being a caring father hiding in a house and helping Rick, to an off his rocker thief who ambushed Rick, Carl, and Michonne in Season 3’s “Clear”. Then he was shown to be a quiet wanderer trailing after Rick, and finally to a man of peace who can take out anyone with a simple staff. It was actually good to finally get to the question a lot of people have been asking. Where has he been, and where did he learn to use that staff? One you might have, “Why isn’t he killing any Wolves?”

Hyphen Nation – Episode #1: Predicting the 2015 NFL Playoffs: Wild Card Round

hn-01-cover

This is not a test. This is the actual real live Episode #1 of Hyphen Nation. There may have been an episode called the 25 Biggie Commandments floating around in March but ignore that (it’s Victory Jumpoff Radio #14 if you must know). This is the real deal. No clones. Not a dream. Not a hoax.

The 2015 NFL Playoffs are upon us, the Wild Card round to be exact. I take a shot at predicting all 4 Wild Card games… and maybe even predict a sleeper Super Bowl winner. It’s all live from the car on a 45 minute lunch break. That’s how dedicated I am to the people. Gave up my lunch break… to give you the first episode of Hyphen Nation. Don’t let it be for nothing.

Book Review: The Dark Knight Returns

dark-knight-returns-comic-01

Mainstream audiences know the name Frank Miller from the movie world. He co-directed the “Sin City” films and produced “300.” Before “Sin City” was a movie franchise, it was a graphic novel. That’s where Frank Miller got his start; in the comic book industry. One of his best known works is the 1986 classic 4-comic series “The Dark Knight Returns.”

One of the cliche terms I can throw out to describe this graphic novel is “gritty.” Visually, emotionally, metaphorically, this has a gritty feel to it. A “film noir” essence. “The Dark Knight” is set in the future. Batman is in his 50’s and has stopped fighting crime. Commissioner Jim Gordon is approaching 70 and being forced into retirement.

Daily Fantasy Sports: Week 13 Lineup Review

la-sp-sn-antonio-brown-goal-post-20151207

Week 13 provided a lot more entertainment from a fantasy sports perspective than in quite a few weeks. In my season long league, I was trying to backdoor into the final playoff spot, to no avail. And in DFS, I tiptoed around spectacular plays on different lineups, but couldn’t create the right combination of players to have a great lineup. Here’s a breakdown of all my lineups from week 13.
