Film Review: Justice League

November 20 / 17 Hey everyone! Internet acting a fool today, but the devil’s a lie! Anyway, I went to see Justice League over the weekend. Loved it, but I do have a few things to gripe about. Yes, I loved Justice League. I grew up watching the cartoon as a kid and now seeing Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and the rest of the crew brought a happy smile to my face.

Shadow Spotlight: Cardi B.

November 13 / 17 A new wave of hip-hop artists has come and put their collective stamp in the music industry. Some have managed to swim, while others have drowned. Belcalis Almanzar or Cardi B. is one of those who is swimming right along the sharp waves with aplomb.
