Like most of you, I have a deep love and reverence for D&D. Not only what it means to me, but what it's introduction did for my younger self and what it continues to do for me today. With that said, like most of you reading this, it's been quite the week for our beloved... Continue Reading →
TPV’s 2022 Film List
This year we saw the closest return yet to pre-pandemic numbers for theaters, as two of the biggest sequels in many years, Top Gun Maverick and Avatar: The Way of Water (one I've seen, the other I haven't), spurned ticket sales globally.

I keep telling myself I won't buy another book until I make good progress on this pile (this doesn't include the pile on my nightstand upstairs).
