First Look: The Mandalorian

Yesterday I was quite convinced that Star Wars was completely dead and that it wasn’t remotely possible to save it. I am still convinced that’s the case…for the most part. I admit that it looks good but trailers have created expectations that were quickly subverted when I actually watched the show. I refuse to become […]

Competitive Wokeness

Salesmanship 101: Nearly all human motivation can be traced back to a desire increase one’s status. One question the Right keeps asking is, how does the Left manage to get even more crazy this year than they were last year? I mean how? It shouldn’t be fucking possible!
