The Star Wars Universe is a deep and vast chasm of the imagination that has been spun into an endless tapestry of movies, toys, and novels. Jon Favreau’s “The Mandalorian” is one of the most original adaptations of this bewildering saga. This tale follows an unnamed Mandalorian bounty hunter played by Pedro Pascal on adventures that land him in a situation that pits him against some of the final remnants of the Galactic Empire. Though...

This is the most I have thought about my own mortality in a very long time. I don’t think anyone wakes up in the morning thinking “this is the day I’m going to die.” Last Sunday on January 26th I myself and the rest of the sports world received one of the hardest pills any of us has ever had to swallow. Kobe Bryant, at the age of 41 is dead. He was traveling in...

Rudy Giuliani was once revered by politicians (Democrat and Republican) for rooting out mob corruption as a New York prosecutor and holding the NYC together through our country’s worst tragedy in the 9/11 terrorist attacks as the city’s mayor. Now his name is in the headlines as his former associate Lev Parnas has been releasing statements and evidence that points in the democrat’s favor for impeachment since his arrest two months ago. Giuliani has been...

I met WLKS founder Austin Wilkes and his lead photographer Shannon Sonniksen at brunch a couple of weeks ago in Pacific Beach. I was eavesdropping on their conversation and heard some business ideas that they were pitching to each other. I always like to collaborate with local fashion designers; from the sound of it they were well organized and had their hearts in the right place. I butted in and asked what their business was...

With The Rise of Skywalker about to hit theaters I think it is a good time to remind ourselves of the The Last Jedi and to be cautious of our expectations going into the saga’s latest installment. Star Wars is more than just a movie to me. The first time I saw A New Hope in theatres with my Dad I was completely mystified. It was all I ever wanted to talk about growing up...

It’s easy to judge a drug addict if you’ve never lived in the lifestyle of distorted reality. This confusion often can spiral into unimaginable self harm. I know because I myself  have been there and still fight a daily battle against addiction. Jarad A. Higgins A.K.A. Juice WRLD’s death hit me extra hard not because I’m an enormous fan of his music and not because I empathize with addicts but because now as I listen...

First, I need to acknowledge that this title is problematic, though I am sure that the subjects of this article are without a doubt are proud of who they are does anyone want to be defined only by their race especially when it comes to their profession? Race has always been a polarizing subject in this Country due to our brutal history that is impossible to erase. There are still echoes of these times when...

The newest steaming app to hit the internet is the long awaited Disney+, when this was first announced many people (including myself) thought this translated to the full Disney catalogue being released to the public. As many of us found out this was not the case. When I was growing up Disney would “open the vault” and release old footage of theme parks, imagineers, and shorts that had not been available to the public every...

Dying in a mass shooting is my greatest fear. I think about it every time I ride public transportation, every time I go to the movies, basically anytime I am around a large crowd. I’m old enough to remember the Columbine High School shooting and the hysteria that followed. Now 20 years later it seems like there are a couple mass shootings a year. We’ve become so numb to it that there is an industry...

Logan’s character is loosely based on a mix of Rupert Murdock, Roger Ailes, Donald Trump, and Others. Last season was met with a lot of scrutiny due to the...
