Top 5 Reasons Why I Write

The sincerity of number 4 will SHOCK you!

That’s right, I’m not above clickbait titles. There’s not even a reason for me to do it - I don’t run ads, I don’t track impressions, I don’t even have a late 90s/early 2000s visitor count. I’m doing clickbait for the love of the game, for the respect of the hustle.

The Monthly Review, March and April '24

It's still monthly, it just took more months than usual this time

Like a bolt from the blue, it’s time for The Monthly Review! I’ve been in a bit of a writer’s slump lately so I didn’t do one last month, so instead we’re just going to treat March and April as one big month. We can call it Marpril or Aprich, whichever sounds most appealing to you. Some of the reviews are longer this time around, which I hope makes up for brief hiatus.

The Monthly Review, February '24

If it takes 2 months to form a habit, does this count as one now?

Like a bolt from the blue, it’s time for The Monthly Review! Despite it being the shortest month, I’m still writing a full length article! If that’s not dedication, I don’t know what is. I nearly didn’t have a movie I wanted to talk about this time, which got me thinking about changing up the format for this. It’s the same this time, but who knows, maybe I’ll be writing about a TV show next time?

The Monthly Review, January ’24

The debut of an ongoing feature - it’s like this is a real blog or something

Like a bolt from the blue, it’s time for The Monthly Review! Last year I enjoyed the process of writing little reviews for all the games I played that I thought I’d try to do something like that more often through out the year. Each month I’ll be doing a review of a new album I’ve listened to, a new game I’ve played, and a new movie I’ve watched. And I have to keep this up because I spent a lot of time making a template for the thumbnail/article header, and I can’t let that all go to waste.

You Should Eat Trash

Why it’s good to interact with bad media

The title says it all folks, you should eat trash. Don’t go rushing for your bins just yet though, we’re talking a different type of trash today. We’re talking about trash media. I know what you’re thinking, “Anton, why would I want to go watch/play/listen to something that’s bad when I could be watching/playing/listening to something good?” Fret not, I’m here to answer that concern and turn you into a true trash believer.
