The Art of Making: Tamales

Outside of consuming media, one of my favorite hobbies is cooking.

There is something about finding that perfect recipe, gathering all the ingredients needed, cracking my knuckles, and getting down to business… gives me such a rush and is relaxing at the same time. Now don’t get me wrong, I can fry a mean egg and whip up a killer batch of limoncello but I am far from Gordon Ramsay. I have my list of favorite recipes, ones that I must have at least once a year, but I am always on the hunt to expand that list. Today we will be discussing one such addition: Peruvian Tamales!

Pardon our Dust!

Our site has been stagnate for a while….. We are out of prison and ready to get back into the swing of things. Okay well that prison sentence isn’t a real thing but we will be undergoing a huge revamp and redirection over the next couple of weeks.

That’s all I can say for now but be on the lookout for more and more updates.

Don’t change that dial!

Isle of Dogs: An easy target for a dogpile.

Isle of Dogs isn’t going to the dogs any time soon.

Isle of Dogs is the latest Wes Anderson vehicle and its about a boy named Atari attempting to find his dog and bring him back home after the government exiles all dogs to an island made out of garbage. The visuals are an excellent combination of traditional animation and stop motion, which are very appealing to eye. The movie’s run time is an hour and 41 minutes and at times it can feel longer. Check out the trailer at this link: Movie Trailer

GBA4IOS a real game changer, pardon my pun.

I travel for work and I don’t have much time to game as I used to.

I have recently made the transition from traditional gaming over to the mobile gaming market. Sadly, Candy Crush and Angry birds have only gotten me so far during the start of this journey. Fortnite and PUBG mobile along with the Nintendo Switch bring me full fledged games in my hands but I am looking for some variety in my game play and not have to carry another device. Let me tell you a little something about the nostalgia factor of Game Boy Advance(GBA) and Game Boy Color(GBC).

The Lucky Few: A Fortnite Tale (Bonus Fortnite Closed Beta Key Giveaway)

HOT! HOT! HOT!

I can barely touch the keys this game is on fire right now. If you haven’t heard of Fortnite or PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds(PUBG), let me help you get out from under that rock….. grandma and grandpa.

Fortnite and PUBG have taken the premise of movies like The Hunger Game ( Rue’s whistle) and Battle Royale (check the trailer out) and made it into a video game. There are a couple of modes that I have played and each has its ups and downs but here are the most common modes… 1 v 99, 2 v 98 and 4 v 96.

That’s right!!! You read that correctly its you versus everyone else. Let me tell you when you first get into this game it feels like such a climb to get even into the top 75, however, after a couple of games things start to click…. that first victory feels sooooooo good!!!

Dare I say it…MoviePass

A giant Peruvian hello to 30 minute media followers! I know it’s been a “minute” (Ha. Dad joke) since I was introduced.

I swear I have a legitimate reason for the delay and it is MoviePass. Instead of feverishly writing my first post, I have been, for lack of a better word, stalking MoviePass. I made the mistake of signing up for MoviePass at the height of its popularity. For those of you who don’t know what MoviePass is, let me fill you in. MoviePass is a 10 dollar/month subscription that lets you watch unlimited 2D movies in theaters. “Talk about a cheap date night!” is what I thought when I signed up. Flash forward to….. Read More

Thor Ragnarok: Thumbs up! 

In between stuffing fists full of popcorn in my mouth (sometimes while) I laughed, maybe a little too much, at this movie.

Amongst the lovable banter between Banner and Thor, the one liners that kept popping back up throughout and, a that mistivious yet convenient plot hurdler Loki… Thor Ragnarok had a lot to offer audiences.

Okay Okay so I will admit this upfront so that way there aren’t questions about it… I have not seen the first two Thor movies in their entirety. I know, shame on me, how can I possible even consider the thought of writing something about this franchise without viewing them beforehand. Well I might get around to it someday but that day isn’t today. Onwards!!! Read More
