Supernatural Keychains Are Here and They're Adorable!

I may or may not have a small blind bag addiction. Add that to a love of Supernatural, a sale, and coupons, and it leads to me getting 15 bags to open. Like I said, I MAY have a small problem.

Random Thoughts: Is Hogwarts Handicapped Accessible?

The weather's cold, I'm huddling under blankets, so I've decided it's time for my annual Harry Potter reread. I'm only up to Chamber of Secrets, and it hit me: Hogwarts is huge and old and full of stairs. How does someone with a physical limitation, like a wheelchair, leg braces, a cane, muscular issues, get around? Seriously, look at all those stairs. Those would be rough for an able-bodied person. What accommodations are there for the physically-challenged?

Sure, Firenze was able to teach Astronomy on the ground floor, but what about students? Yes, a simple glisseo spell could be used, but even that's a problem, because the school is tall. Ramps/slides would be steep. The student who needs it would probably have to work twice as hard to get up them. So what do they do? Are there special schools for them? Wouldn't that be kind of messed up if they did? Or are there spells to fix disabilities? Is that ethically questionable? Why do I now have all these questions? I feel like I need to tweet JK Rowling and ask for her thoughts.

Has this been answered in the other books? If not, how do you think they compensate?

Review: WWE The Cell Deluxe Playset

This holiday season I got to help my nephew put together the WWE The Cell Playset. It’s a giant Hell in a Cell, and it’s definitely something.

Five Problems I had with Rogue One

New Year and New Me!  Supposedly, at least.  My New Years' resolution is to catch up on the things that I've missed. One of the most important things I needed to catch up on was finally seeing Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. I know, I know, it is long overdue.  So, I woke up early on January 1st to greet 2017, grabbed my breakfast candy, and headed to the first screening of the morning. 

Wow, Rogue One was a fucking fantastic film.  I truly enjoyed it.  It just worked so damn well. It gave fan service without being overbearing, added new info and depth to a world we already knew, and gave us plenty of action.  Frankly, it succeeded in every place The Force Awakens failed miserably.  

That being said, we both know you've seen the title of this post.  No movie is perfect, with the notable exception of the 1987 Masters of the Universe live action film. That movie is perfection incarnate and no one will ever change my mind.  I had five issues with the movie.  All of them are small issues, with only two barely relating to the plot and two relating to the credits.  So really, I'm practically nitpicking.  I leave these complaints to you, dear reader, to decide if they have merit.
