2023 WNBA Finals
The house always wins! Your Las Vegas Aces are WNBA champions once again. The first WNBA team to go back to back in 20 long years! I am incredibly proud of our girls. I cannot wait to attend the parade. Unfortunately I was not able to make it last year but I'll be there this year! I implore all other Vegas natives and residents to attend the parade, let's show our girls even more love this 2nd time around. The parade is scheduled for Monday 10/23/23 but with no location at the time of publishing this article.
2023 WNBA finals
To no one's surprise the two teams that were favorited by everyone, coveted as super-teams before either roster even arrived to their respective training camps, and basically the teams that broke the W are on their way to the WNBA finals to play each other tomorrow. Of course my Vegas bias aside, this best of 5 series will be absolutely insane. Vegas and NY were both the #1 and #2 in every major statistic category for the regular season. Both teams broke and set many W records and both are just loaded with talent. The Aces look to be the first team in 20 years to go back to back in the W, and the Liberty after 20 long years away from the finals want their very first ring. Both teams want to prove they're not just a failed experiment. So who wins?
Wnba 2023 regular season
This season absolutely did not disappoint. Of course I'm bias since I'm an Aces fan, and my Aces rightfully finished off on top. But New York certainly did not disappoint. The age of the WNBA super-team era is certainly here. Unfortunately, my Aces came up on the losing side most of the time with our head to head battles against NY, but a NYC/LVA finals, is going to be incredible.
Defining and combating toxic masculinity
One of my few and far in between controversial articles, so be prepared everyone. I feel like words have lost their power, impact, and importance. Which is strange to me, because in the age of the internet where what you say is permanent. We should be more thoughtful and aware of what we say and when. And I'm not talking about political correctness, censorship, or anything like that. I am however talking about toxic masculinity. Definitely a hot button topic, and honestly rightfully so. We should always aim to be better and learn from not only our mistakes but the mistakes of past generations. Which of course applies to all aspects of life; health, politics, parenting, everything in our society.
Movies I absolutely love, but I HATE watching
It's been quite a while since I've talked about movies hasn't it? You might be asking yourself now, "Dyllon, why don't you like watching movies that you like? That sounds completely contradictory.". Trust me I'm aware of how it sounds and it's not click bait either. I do love every single one of these films but every time they come on I just think to myself "Oh boy, strap in. It's (insert film here)". Again you'll understand once you start reading.
With over 60K articles written in the humans community, I've seen a few articles discussing AAIP, Asian hate, and some articles discussing the fetishization of Asian women. All important topics to discuss, however. When I looked up the phrase AMWF here on vocal, there were no responses. Now let me explain what the phrase AMWF stands for/means. AMWF is an acronym for "Asian Male Western Female". It's as the name implies, an Asian man and a "Western" female relationship.
What we do in the shadows
Taika is absolutely hilarious. People seem to forget that after Thor 4. If you need a reminder, I highly recommend watching "What We Do in The Shadows". I get it, it can be a niche comedy. But when you get a chance, watch this film! Hurry up with "We'rewolves" already!
Supporting women's sports
It takes a staggering two seconds of looking at my profile, to see that I love sports. Basically any sport, minus soccer, if it's on I'm watching it. Hockey will always be at the top of the mountain, again no surprise there. However something I've noticed throughout the years, which really shouldn't be the case. I'm weirdly in the minority of sports fans, as someone who loves male and female sports. If you don't appreciate the product fine, I get it. But if there's something I absolutely cannot stand, it's all the hate women's sports gets by "sports fans" because it's cool to hate. It's cool to spread negativity. Unfortunately the WNBA gets the absolute brunt of this negativity with WMMA not too far behind. I see so many people's fight prediction cards with "bathroom break" over the WMMA fights on the card. Whatever bud, do you I guess.
The Big Short
An absolute rollercoaster of emotions from start to finish; dread, hopelessness, defeat, excitement, hope ironically enough. The Big Short has it all. A fantastic, hilarious, tragic film that's able to simplify complex wall street vocabulary, into an easily digestible and understandable message about greed and corruption. Please, watch this film.
And we're back to me talking about John Cena. I'm so glad he took the leap to hollywood. John is an incredible actor and absolutely hilarious. Yeah he's had some blunders in the past. Peacemaker is not one of them. Hilarious, violent, and shockingly deep when it wants to be.
Marvel Multiverse Saga so far
As a friendly reminder, we're currently in the Mulitverse Saga of the MCU. I loved the Infinity Saga from start to finish. Very few blemishes. However, so far the multiverse saga has been immensely disappointing. A pitiful ratio of good/bad projects and horrible CGI. I really hope this changes soon.
