Greetings, Vocal readers. I had a great time at Arkansas Comic Con last weekend. Thousands of people descended at the Statehouse Convention Center in Little Rock for the 2-day event. It was my first time attending this convention and man, did I have the time of my life. Now that I’m back home, I’m here to review this con and share my pros and cons (no pun intended).
Greetings, Vocal readers. As I prepare to head to Little Rock for Arkansas Comic Con this weekend, I decided to do a cosplayer interview to pass up the time. One of the things I love the most about interviewing a cosplayer is getting to know more about them and share my articles about them to my followers on social media. Recently, I had the opportunity to interview Walter 'Kidkryptonite' Johnson. His cosplays are amazing to see on my social media feeds. I hope you enjoy my interview with him.
Despite actor Brad Pitt threatening to sue the organizers, backlash, and controversy, Boston's so-called "Straight Pride" took place Saturday. I wrote an article a month ago condemning this event and even wrote an open letter to straight people, well, most who felt like they needed an event to celebrate their sexuality.

It's Morphin Time! You can't go anywhere without hearing that Morphing Chant. 26 years ago today, a live-action series called Mighty Morphin Power Rangers was born. It premiered on Fox Kids on August 28, 1993, which ran for three seasons, and was one of the longest-running kids' live-action series in television history. Over 900 episodes and 26 seasons later, the franchise is still going strong and has no signs of slowing down anytime soon. So you must be wondering if this day was real and how it was a national day to begin with. The answer to your first question is yes, and I'll share with you how Power Rangers Day came to light. According to the National Day Calendar, the toy company Hasbro established it in 2018, to help celebrate the franchise's 25th anniversary. If it weren't for Haim Saban, the person responsible for creating Power Rangers, it wouldn't exist today. Power Rangers taught us about teamwork,inclusivity, and diversity to people of all age groups. This tradition is still alive and well today.
"Up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, start:" the Konami Code that many of us recognize by heart. Contra was an NES game that I loved to play as a kid, and still do as an adult. In this article, I'm going to walk everyone through how to make extra lives from this run-and-gun game. Two months ago, I wrote a DIY article about teaching everyone how to make a block from Super Mario Bros. 3. It was the first time in almost 20 years that I've done any perler bead art. To me, doing this hobby is not only therapeutic, but exciting. You can check out that article here.
30 years ago today, a 16-bit home video game console was introduced to the masses. That gaming system was the Sega Genesis and it released over 900 games. To date, it had sold almost 31 million units and its best selling game was Sonic the Hedgehog, which sold 15 million units. I'll be sharing some of my favorite Sega Genesis games that I loved playing as a kid, in no particular order. In about a month, the Sega Genesis Mini is set to be released and will include 42 pre-installed games. It will go on sale for $79.99 and if you would like to see the full list of games, you can click the link down below. I've written an article about it two months ago, so be sure to check it out. In the mean time, I hope you enjoy my list of Sega Genesis games.
