Character Spotlight: Eleven
Who hasn't fallen in love with the Netflix phenomenon Stranger Things? It's an amazing show on so many levels. It harkens back to our childhoods, at least if you were a child of the '80s or even early '90s. It also brings back some of our favorite genres. The show also features an extraordinary cast of characters. I'll admit, when I first heard that the main cast was all kids, I shuddered. My mind went back to other shows where the kids were too creepy or annoying. However, the Stranger Things cast is phenomenal. Out of the show came a fantastic girl

Geek Music Episode 110: Lipstick #2
In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk again to Greg and Steve from Lipstick. Although Lipstick II came out back in January, we hadn’t yet talked about it for the podcast. It’s a much geekier album than their debut, something which might have been polarizing out in the larger music community (as we talked about in the episode), but I suspect won’t be
Assassin’s Creed Origins: What I’m Loving So Far
After a year, I finally got a new game in the form of Assassin’s Creed Origins. I watched game trailers beforehand and I was definitely intrigued. AC Syndicate was amazing and definitely redemptive from other franchise mistakes. I was certainly interested in the storyline. I became eager to delve into the origins of the Brotherhood. I finally bought the game and my fingers stretched to play. I cautiously waited as I cracked open the plastic seal and began my journey into Ancient Egypt. Here is my list of things I’m loving so
