The Great Sneeze Off of 2018

On my social media feeds, this proved the best way to show how bad my sneezing got from time to time: My head alternated between feeling taken violently off by the next sneeze to getting stuffed so full of metaphorical cotton balls, I had to lay down. One of the Woke Comedy Collective members recommended hot …

The Cord Cutter’s Update: Reattaching The Cord

While taking a break from bopping to 'Cut to the Feeling,' I decided to take a listen to the Castlevania teaser trailer from Netflix.
