Halsey's 'Hopeless Fountain Kingdom' Gives A Creative Spin On A Enduring Tale

Romeo and Juliet is one of the most famous and storied tragedies within the works of William Shakespeake. It’s the famous story of two people from warring families who love each other so much that they could not exist without the other. Over time, there have been adaptations of this, most notability, the 1996 modernized version of the tale from Baz Luhrmann. Sometimes we create our own universes or make updated revisions to a story in order to get out the disorientation of our own minds and liv

WWE RAW: The Road To GBOF, Makeups to Breakups and You Can't Teach That

We are coming off a rather rocky version of Raw. The Brock Lesnar/Samoa Joe confrontation was done well, but the show was rather lukewarm. This weeks episode of Raw did have some good m​moments where they developed feuds for the Great Balls of Fire PPV in July (I still can’t believe I’m calling it that) including a good swerve at the end. However, there were still some head scratches. Roman Reigns Announcement | Match vs. Samoa Joe: What do you do when your universal champion is not on Raw ever

"Last Hope" - The Endurance of Paramore

“It’s just a spark/But it’s enough to keep me going” Paramore is that rugged, enduring movie hero that walks through the smoke, tattered, but triumphant at the conclusion of a action movie. Founded in 2004 in Franklin, Tennessee while the members were in their teens, they took their form of energetic alternative rock/pop punk from the stages of Warped Tour to the huge crowd of Madison Square Garden. It’s a treat for a band to have a generation of music fans grow up with them – almost like dista

Review: Injustice 2 #1

In January 2013, the Injustice: Gods Among Us comic was released after first being announced by Ed Boon to serve as a companion to the video game. Set in a different universe, it showed what would become of Earth if Superman lost the things he loved the most. Some of our favorite super heroes and villains in the DC Universe picked sides, which resulted in Superman ultimately being defeated. Of course, the story could not end there as Injustice 2 was announced in June 2016. ​The first issue of t

WWE Raw: The Age of RAWR and Trying to Form The Card For Payback

RAWRRRR: Remember that vicious beating that Roman Reigns took? Of course you do – it was probably one of the highest points of Reigns hate. Well at the start of RAW, Braun Strowman came down and reveled in his excessive brutality last week and claimed that he was going to go through the RAW locker room. GM Kurt Angle came down and made the match between him and Roman at Payback in two weeks. Perhaps Roman will find a bafta tank to heal all his injuries before then. Like Mick Foley before him, Br

The Leftovers Season 3 Premiere Shows You Can Visit the Past and Future for Puzzle Pieces

Miracles. Unexplained phenomena. Humans cling to explanations that seem the most irrational when extravagant things occur and shake the very foundation to which they live to the core. The Leftovers TV series, which is making its final rounds in a short third season, which was already in a rabbit hole of mystery and intrigue, seems to do that again…with time jumps. That sound familiar? Well, if you watched a little show called Lost, then you would be more than acquainted with the Damon Lindelof s

Review: Superman #20

One of the joys of this Superman run is that after a big event occurs, the setting gets reined in and made to look intimate again. The reader really feels the love between Superman, Jon, and Lois. Look at the beauty of the first few pages of Superman #20. Throughout the mediums, whether it be movies, comics, or television, not only is sunlight a conduit for Superman’s power – it also gives off a sense of hope. As Jon plays with his friend Cathy and Superman flies around Hamilton, John Kalisz ill
