Introduction: Throughout history, language has served as the primary means of communication, a repository of culture, and a tool for preserving knowledge.

5 Underappreciated Shark Films
It's finally here, the 20th entry in my Underappreciated Films series! So, for this entry I wanted to do something very different and cover a type of movie that I hadn't covered yet. This entry will focus on made for TV films.
Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
The first Hunger Games resurgence started when the first trailer for Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes was released. The second is now as the movie has opened. The problem with both is it brings forth the people that have the media literacy of bread. So I will reiterate once again, nearly no art exists for entertainment. Most art has a message, ALL dystopian art is commentary and you are supposed to understand the themes it's spoon feeding to you. If you are the part of the fanbase asking for more games, you are the problem and you need to get that worked out with a licensed healthcare professional. That said, The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes was a wonderful and terrifying look at what power can do to people, the choices between right and wrong and what people will do to survive.
My Top 5 Films of 2023
I have seen many films in 2023. I have not reviewed many of them including stunning films like Oppenheimer and terrible films like Blue Beetle. I have therefore compiled a list of the best films I have seen in 2023 and some reason as to why. This should clear up the sporadic film reviews that I do as well as provide some insight into how I felt about film this year. I have to admit, sometimes I am biased to enjoy a horror film more than anything else but I have tried to be as fair and as pragmatic as possible and I do not think anyone is going to be surprised by number one on the list at all. I hope you enjoy the reading.
Discussion of "Demon Slayer" Anime
Isn't the Demon Slayer storyline fascinating? I heard that the "Mugen Train Arc" will be broadcast on Japanese TV for the first time. To catch up with the recent hype, I watched the entire TV series in the past three days, and it was truly captivating. I have only seen the Tanjiro Risshi Arc and the Infinity Train Arc once, and I have never read the original story.
The Hard Truths: An Entrepreneur's Diary of 2023
30 November 2023 - 2:45 p.m. As the sun sets on the last day of November 2023, I find myself pondering on the eventful month that has been. The strain of tiredness, worry, and never-ending obstacles has taken a toll on both my physical and emotional health. I can't say I'm at my best right now; in fact, I'm far from it. I've been battling illness for the past week, which has only contributed to the pile of difficulties I've been facing. The path to success appears hazy, clouded in ambiguity, and I've found myself on the verge of quitting up.

Book Review: "Crippen" by John Boyne
John Boyne is one of the 21st century's finest writers. I have read many books by him over my time. These include but are not limited to: The Echo Chamber, The Heart's Invisible Furies, A History of Loneliness, This House is Haunted, The Absolutist, The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas, A Traveller at the Gates of Wisdom and most recently, Water. As of yet, I am waiting for his novel Earth to come out in 2024, but for now I shall entertain myself with the books I have not yet read. Most recently, I have read his novel Crippen which is a nod to a slightly different genre, crime, in which Boyne investigates how to marry his poetic writing to such a dark topic. The aspect of writing crime is also explored in his novel Water through the second-hand account of Vanessa/Willow and though both are enjoyable, both are still very different in style.
How Rick And Morty Made The Case for the Mid-Season Finale Gambit
Gambling can be fun sometimes, especially if done safely, kids - and clearly, Dan Harmon Co-Creator of the series and writers of this episode, Albro Lundyand and James Siciliano are betting men. Season 7 episode 5 “Unmortricken” is the episode where Rick, or the Rick we follow at least - a parasitical grandpa/deadbeat father/Jerry tormentor gets everything he asked for. It has everything: lore, backstory, intrigue, revenge, and a dash of ghoulish overkill. Mainly of the spare ‘thematic’ Ricks. It’s very big, it’s very clever, but is it it? If any season of any show needed to prove itself, it is this one - and usually this is done by a traditional season structure. But since when has Rick and Morty played by the rules?
