The Midnight Killer
There was a box that appeared on my doorstep a long time ago. I was a Salesman at that time. It was late at night, and I had been drinking. I had work the next morning, and I couldn't sleep. I didn't want the next day to begin because I hated my job.
Death by Chocolate Cake
Weeks had gone by since Omar had a good night's sleep. His bloodshot eyes felt heavy as he tried to concentrate on the empty country road. It was still too early for traffic. His head yearned for a pillow even though he felt comfortable in his gray hoodie. There were an obscene amount of coffee cups lying around in his car. He was trying to stay awake but his body was betraying him: dozing off at the most inconvenient of times.
Joker: Birth of a Super-Villain in a Capitalist Society
As of this writing you've probably seen 'Joker'. It's just one of those movies that garners a divisive reaction. To be fair, most of the criticism has come from film critics but most audiences have really appreciated the movie. Joker has earned over $334 million in US and Canada, and has earned $1.067 billion worldwide.
'Doom Patrol': The Right Kind of Weird
Into the Donkey's Mouth Every so often, there comes a show that captures your imagination. Then some shows accelerate your imagination like a hamster on coke, duct-taped to a bottle rocket.

Twin Peaks, and How To Enjoy It
Twin Peaks Season 3 is now in progress, and so far the show has been getting a lot of mixed reception. The criticism has been mostly focused on the show’s pacing which has been very, very slow; unlike the original series, there has been a lack of humor and the general genre-bending that the show usually employs. The show, so far, isn’t providing the audience with any real form of exposition, and the plot is incoherent, at best. However, I think the real reason the show has gotten the reaction it has, is because everything feels different, maybe even unfamiliar.
