What do you dream about? This fairly innocuous question is asked among friends, partners, and even medical professionals. The dream state is still a mystery for many of us. What induces nightmares?

There is a sort of comedic tragedy when watching low-budget films. Badly written dialogue becomes countless inside jokes between friends, laughing at the hilarious sets, or the plot (or lack thereof) becomes a involved, philosophical discussion about the formulas of filmmaking. The fim has a new appeal, which comes in sharing it the experience in… Read More »

Let RNG be your guide in the first expansion for Hearthstone! If you are wondering where that RNG (Random Number Generation) will take you so am I, but the journey is too fun to pass up.
