Apple Finally Targets Artists With iPad Pro

Apple Finally Targets Artists With iPad Pro

by Peter Paltridgeon September 9, 2015
When the original iPad made its debut at the dawn of this decade, my first thought was that it would make waves in the art community by finally making Cintiq-like drawing screens ubiquitous and easy to find. Then it turned out the iPad did everything BUT drawing. Your only options were to fingerpaint, or to […]

Do The Critics Of “Teen Titans Go!” Have A Point?

by Peter Paltridgeon August 3, 2015
Teen Titans Go! is one of those rare shows that responds to its own critics, and last week it fired the biggest shot yet with a cartoon titled “The Return Of Slade.” Slade was the biggest villain of the original Teen Titans series and also its darkest.

In every news feed I’ve visited this morning, no matter what its focus or theme is, I’ve seen this headline: “HOMER AND MARGE ARE BREAKING UP IN THE NEXT SEASON OF THE SIMPSONS!!!” The actual article within, of course, is safe to point out “but everything will be back to normal in the next episode.” […]

by Todd Blackon April 12, 2015
I bet you’re asking, “What makes a good Bond villain?” When it comes to struggles of good vs. evil, we many times remember what the hero did to save the day/world/universe.

Spring 2014 Anime Impressions: “Captain Earth”

by Lelouchon May 5, 2014
I have to admit, to having a love/hate relationship with Studio BONES. On one hand, they never disappoint in the technical aspects of a series. On the other, sometimes the stories they tell lack proper development and conclusion (I’m looking at you, Star Driver ).  Despite this I’m always excited when BONES announces a new […]
