  • The Ninth Doctor Still Travels with Rose

    Doctor Who – Weapons of Past Destruction I read this book a few years back when I found it at the public library and I was really impressed. It reminded me of why I used to love seeing Chris Eccleston in the role of the title character. The artwork was amazing and Cavan Scott penned […]

  • Little Women Shines Bright

    Little Women is an absolute classic and one of my favourite books. I was worried that this film would not do the story justice. That, plus, the 1994 version was brilliant. I was planning on avoiding this one entirely, but a few things made me change my mind. A week before its release, I happened to […]

  • Forget Samples, Be Novel

    An Age Without Samples: Originality and Creativity in the Digital World by Ikutaro Kakehashi Ikutaro Kakehashi is the founder of Roland and he has a unique perspective on music, business, and innovation. He writes . . . “I believe we should re-examine how we manufacture musical instruments by reflecting on the intrinsic nature of music. […]

  • Star Trek: TNG Season 3+ (Maybe)

    Star Trek: The Next Generation – Terra Incognita I love to browse the graphic novel section every time I visit the library. I’m usually able to find a book or two that interests me. This one did just that. It seemed like it was a good time to get back into the world of Star […]

  • A Word is Bond Rap Radio Christmas

    Word is Bond Rap Radio will be on tonight, Christmas Eve, with a brand new holiday special. I’m dropping the podcast now so you can rock out with a fresh holiday mix. I prerecorded it so I could spend the day with my family. However you are spending the day. I want to wish you […]

  • Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Bridge Film, TV, and Comics

    Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Volume 1 – The Coulson Protocols Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is a unique television show that deals with story lines and issues from the cinematic universe. I have really enjoyed the show over the past six years. Unfortunately, next year the series will be coming to an end. Phil Coulson was a […]

    Two hours of underground hip-hop mixed live on the radio by DJ Chase March. Strap in and enjoy the ride. It’s about to get hectic with the boom-bap beats and lyricism! Bishop Nehru & Brady Watt – Enjoy the Ride Mickey O’Brien – Strangers (DJ Matto Remix) Atmosphere – Love Each Other Awon ft Anti […]

  • The Fifth Beatle – Brain Epstein’s Story

    The Fifth Beatle: The Brian Epstein Story is an award-winning graphic novel from the creative team of Vivek J. Tiwart, Andrew C. Robinson, and Kyle Baker. I love The Beatles but wasn’t really aware of how much their manager did for them. It’s nice to get a behind-the-scenes telling of his story. It’s also cool […]

  • Pleasantly Surprised by The Wild Robot

    The Wild Robot and The Wild Robot Escapes by Peter Brown It’s not weird to enjoy children’s literature at my age is it? If so, I don’t care. I picked this one up because it was recommended to me via my library app.  When I started reading it, I almost put it down. The very […]

  • In-depth with Dan-e-o

    I’ve been a fan of Dan-e-o since the start of his music career back in 1996. It was long overdue to have him on the show. I normally start off each episode of Word is Bond Rap Radio with a half hour music mix. I picked a bunch of Dan-e-o tunes and songs that he […]
