CIA agents “Mace” Brown (Jessica Chastain) and Nick Fowler (Sebastian Stan) are working to track down a weapon that can control any type of technology – a dangerous McGuffin in […]

I can vividly remember sitting at the TWA Dome for the first preseason game of the 1999 St. Louis Rams season. So much hype around a team that had been lousy for so long. We had Marshall Faulk, Isaac Bruce, Torry Holt, Orlando Pace to go along with a cast of solid players. All were […]

C2E2 2021: A Weekend In Review

Posted: December 16, 2021 at 10:08 am   /   Convention Reviews

As I’ve stated before, C2E2 holds a special place among conventions for me. Not only was it my first con outside of Saint Louis, but it’s where I met so many of my wonderfully nerdy friends. Since I started this journey back in 2017, I’ve only missed C2E2 once and it gave me massive regrets. […]
