Strong as 10 Men, a List of 5 Favourites!

In my childhood, there was a figure that competed for my love alongside Godzilla, and that was Hercules! The Roman, the OG, the Bactrian Buddha buddy, however you sculpt your lion-pelted demigod, I was a fan! With my cartoon-drenched childhood in mind, I present to you some of my favourite portrayals as a child, along with some interesting traditional versions that I encountered as an adult.

I Hate Being Sick

Being sick is such a motherfucker. Back in August, Dani and I both got sick – we’ve since agreed that it was food poisoning – and it lasted for weeks. We were running to bathrooms for a good chunk of that month! Many plans were foiled! Now, October. I’m sick! AGAIN! This time it is 100% a […]

Book Baubles: Wizarding Edition

Khairete! This is long overdue, as the semester has been a battle! Mikaius here, victoriously marching in with games, fresh booty from the War of Sales (not to be mistaken for the War of Sails, which I lost miserably)! Yer a wizard e’rybody! Or rather, you can be, with these games! (1) Rogue Legacy by Cellar Door Games This game […]

Book Baubles: of the Dead Edition

Starting with an anti-recommendation, a condemnation. Do not watch the World War Z movie, it is a sham and it is terrible. It is not a good adaption of the source material, it is not a good horror or action movie, and it is not even a good movie. I love Brad Pitt, I love […]

Literature Monday: World War Z, Max Brooks

Khairete, Mikaius remains your ever loyal bookbuddy. It’s exam season, and students are endangered, so I have arranged today’s Literature Monday. Today I’m bringing what may well have been the last book I read. My reading is limited, but I went through a predictable and absolutely massive zombie-phase in my late teens/early twenties. This happened […]

Book Baubles: Star Wars Video Games Edition

Khairete! Mikaius again, bringing you the best Star Wars games of my youth! Star Wars was my entire childhood. I wasn’t into Star Trek then, I didn’t find Doctor Who until I was 18, and Middle-Earth was a second-hand love. That I grew up in the 90’s meant that I could combine my favourite things so […]

Literature Monday: Star Wars Encyclopedia, Stephen J. Sansweet

Khairete, Mikaius remains your substitute book worm as Dani battles mighty deadlines. Well, it’s time for a moment from my childhood. Growing up in the ’90s, I was lucky enough to enjoy Star Wars before the Prequels and the ’97 Remasters: I was just old enough to get the “real deal”, and it’s nice to have […]

Book Baubles: Graecian Edition

Khaírete (greetings!), Mikaius bringing you today’s Book Baubles. Considering the theme of this week’s Literature Monday, I wasn’t entirely sure how to do Book Baubles today. I could make a bunch of stuffy suggestions and condemnations about philosophy, or I could tell you to go watch Brad Pitt in sexy leather armour. I’m going with the […]
