    Introducing James Icarus

      The Observer Ever since James was young, he was obsessed with spy movies. Acting like the Bond version of himself, he would spend his days running around defeating imaginary bad-guys and investigating their hideouts throughout the suburbs of the Eastern United States.

    The Road: Brought to You by Coca-Cola

    The Road I liked this movie so much, I had to do Say It Like the Peanut Butter twice!   SPOILERS AHEAD   I’ll get the ball rolling by being honest: this movie made me cry. I teared up several times, and I thought I was gonna make it – nope. When Viggo Mortensen kicked the bucket, so […]

    The Recovery of DOG_Unit#073517

    This writing assignment is in homage to Black Mirror, Season 4, Episode 5: Metalhead. The GIF on the assignment page is what inspired me!

    Much to Digest

    End Day Throughout the five apocalypse scenarios (tsunami, asteroid, eruption, virus, and “strangelet”) I noticed how the main character got closer to his goal each time the day reset.
