Good afternoon my Moar Powah chums and chumettes! Following my delightful tandem as a new writer in the glorious geek/weeaboo review land, this week I decided to embark upon, for myself, a brand new branch of fandom: Asian drama. While my friends have been trying to suck me into this deep, gaping, pit of feels for years, I have finally decided to take the plunge with a completely random Japanese drama: Last Cinderella. However, akin to a Whovian’s first glimpse at Tumblr, I now realize that I am in deep doodoo. In other words, I am in love.

Hey y’all! The review this week is all about siblings, starring the sibling group from YG Entertainment, Akdong Musician. In 2013, they won the second season of K-Pop Star, and got a contract with YG a month later. Throughout their competition, they were praised for their original songs, written by brother Lee Chan-hyuk, 17. Lee Soo-hyun, 15, completes the duo and their album, “Play” was released in April with three singles, the last to be voted on by fans. The third, fan-chosen single is Give Love, which I’l be looking at today.

Adventure Time Card Wars title card

In a certain episode of Adventure Time, the writers had Finn and Jake play a very affectionate parody of Magic the Gathering called Card Wars. Then after a flood of fan feed back, it became a real game on iOS and Android and a real physical TCG. Tonight, resident card shark, the Inverseman will be reviewing the iOS/Android game application. It’s time to… Click the Read More button.

Hello everyone, and welcome to an exciting edition of Fantastic Feasts and Where to Find Them, where the food is tasty and the puns are flatter than a bad souffle (*Ba dum tsh*). Anyroad, it’s been a long time coming and I am pleased to share with you the first (of many) Game of Thrones-themed recipes to sate that need for some “fantasy” foods.

And since my name is a play on the “Fenris wolf,” I think it’s high time that you all learn that I am a fan of House Stark so I just had to make a batch of Dire Wolf Bread. The North remembers–and sometimes some whimsy, even in the form of a mishapen, sweet wolf loaf, can help even the hardest of hearts remember the good times.

If there’s one superhero franchise I’m a sucker for, it’s the X-Men. Yeah I know I said last week I was looking more forward to Godzilla, but trust me, X-Men are a close second. If I’m being totally honest, the X-Men are probably my favorite superhero franchise to get a movie. I love Wolverine, and Jean Gray and Emma Frost and Colossus and Storm and Nightcrawler and Xavier and Angel and Iceman and Blink and Pyro and Kitty Pryde/Shadowcat/Sprite/whatever the hell she’s calling herself now. I love the concept and the style and the stories and the characters. I love it when it’s weird and I love it when it’s normal and I love it when it’s political and I love it when it’s stupid; I love everything about it. Hell, I even love Cyclops, at least when he’s well written.

gumi-going-my-way-title

Sometimes, out of all of the nonsensical and electronic Vocaloid songs, you just want an uplifting, peaceful listen. This week we’re listening to one of my favorite Vocaloids for her clear and pretty darn close-to-natural voice, Gumi. Her new song Going My Way by 40mP is just that, complete with a colorfully animated PV below the cut:
