Kanye West is my second favorite artist after Logic, but this album review on The Life of Pablo will be completely in favor of Yeezy. From the get go, “Ultralight beam” is very gospel-like with a church choir on the hook. Chance the Rapper kills his verse talking about his daughter and how he feels even more unstoppable after collaborating with Kanye. There are also...

Daredevil is a marvel comics “O.G.” (Original Gangster). This term is commonly applied to unmitigated bad-asses who have been around since as long as anyone can remember. The Netflix original series: “Marvel’s The Daredevil: Season 2,” is one of the best offerings ever to bare the sacred Marvel Studios name. The story threads, which, carry us through the 13 episodes,...

Best cell phone carrier is Verizon

From someone with Verizon wireless as his carrier, I can honestly tell you it is by far the best wireless service out there. Better than Sprint with its hidden fees, and don’t even get me started on those lackluster Boost and Metro PCS services. They are a joke. Don’t get me wrong I have had all of these carriers and they all offer fine services. Sprint has some of the...

In the summer of 2015, the AMC (American Movie Classics) channel announced a new series they said would rival the already critically acclaimed “The Walking Dead.” On Nov. 15, 2015, they delivered on that lofty promise with their new post-apocalyptic concoction titled “Into the Badlands.” ITB or “Badlands” for short, is a kung-fu based drama surrounding two main...

Being a typical man who loves sports and video games, I decided to review a magazine that is geared toward women. I looked through the magazine section at Foodmaxx and was beyond confused because I didn’t have a clue what the more girly magazines were supposed to be about. So I closed my eyes and randomly grabbed a magazine. Do I now regret this? Yes. I say this because...

New movie portrays a great story but could have been better

The new drama “The Finest Hours” told a great story, but it could’ve been better. Based on a true story of an impossible Coast Guard rescue mission of 32 crewmembers. Bernie Webber captained a 36-foot boat off the coast of Cape Cod during a blizzard in 1952. I wish that Disney had gone a little deeper into the back story. I would’ve liked to know more about Webber...
