  • “Heroes” – Four Months Later

    Every Tuesday, I’ll be blogging about the show “Heroes”, for the TV site Magnetic Media Fed. Here’s my review of last week’s season premiere. Sometimes, I wish this was a show called “Her Es” about a girl and her magical adventures with her favorite letter of the alphabet. For as weak and underwhelming as last […]

  • Inadvertently Recreating a Scene from Garden State

    Though each time I go to China, I make a pledge to write many reviews (usually a stretch where I’ve written very few) and not follow through, I’ll quietly imply that same pledge now, and begin and start here. With the fact that flying to China from the U.S. is an awful experience, many of […]

  • The Human Back (Model Year 1982)

    (Ripping off of 1/3 of Adam’s title from last fall) The MD: Tell me about the pain in your back. Me: Well, I can stand up and lie on my back just fine. The MD: Okay, good. Me: But everything other than that feels like the end of the world. The MD: (In the way […]

  • Empty Bookshelf’s First 100 Reviews

    Oh, those kids. Always at it. You guys really shouldn’t’ve. So here we are at the first of what may be a few reviews of our first milestone, 100 reviews. Not only is this the first review of this milestone, but of what could be very many milestones. We here at the Bookshelf like the […]

  • Block I of CUCVM, the Human Ribcage (1984 model), and Misc.

    Note: I originally rated my final subject as a 1.5 star performance due to what I felt was excessive plagiarism. However, before I could publish this, our dictator chose to steal my triple-review format (though he admits this freely). Therefore, I awarded myself another half-star. Damn, Commies. Okay, I’ll be honest…I’ve been slacking it on […]

  • Knocking the Wind Out of Adam

    Time for a mini-review! (before I take on my semi-idol, Roger Ebert later in the week) All things considered, this review will probably not actually earn “the seal”:-( So, we were playing football the day after Thanksgiving. There were about ten people there, which is a pleasantly complete number, as the field can be reasonably-sized, […]

  • Nose Bleeds

    It’s amazing what you find when you type in “Nosebleed” in Google. I suppose that nose bleeds aren’t really a medical condition; more like a symptom of something. I mean I guess if it’s not related to something else, it could be a condition, if the nose bleeds are chronic that is. In fact, I’m […]
