Haruki Murakami’s novels gained immense popularity among the younger generation for its slice-of-life plots and themes of naivetivity and flawed love.

Everybody loves a classic, but with all the remakes and sequels being done it’s hard to appreciate a flash to the past. The Jungle Book was one of these remakes and I didn’t think it would be that good. I hadn’t watched the cartoon Jungle Book since I was little (I think we still have it on VH...

Once again, Cassandra Clare exceeded my highest expectations. Clare released Lady Midnight, the first novel of The Dark Artifices and the third, chronologically fourth series of the The Shadowhunter Chronicles, on March 8, 2016.   It is an understatement to say that this novel has torn me apart in...

God’s Not Dead 2 is  (according to Google) the eighth movie released by Pure Flix Entertainment, a Christian production company. And as with in any shamelessly Christian film, it shamelessly throws in Bible verses. But then again aren’t Christians supposed to be shameless with their faith? Now befor...

Let me just say, there are a lot of TV shows out there. As a result, there are so many shows that it’s impossible to  watch all of them, especially since so many of them are bad. But every once in awhile there’s a show that appears one day out of the blue that instantly grabs you and won’t let go. F...

Normally on a Sunday after church, my family and I eat out and this week, we decided to try something new. My brother recommended Pho Lucky because he and his friends eat there often and apparently, the food is pretty good. The restaurant is located about a mile down from Costco and the size of the buil...

“Furiously Happy: A Funny Book About Horrible Things” by Jenny Lawson isn’t the average, sappy book about depression.  It’s inspiring, honest and most of all, funny. Lawson writes first hand what it’s like to live with depression and not go completely crazy.   Lawson gives situations ...

“Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens” is the movie that will remind jaded viewers why “Star Wars” is a tradition in Western culture.  Like Christmas or Shakespeare, the epic space opera franchise will never die.  It is too profitable, but beyond that, it is a tale of how the light will...

Whenever my family wants something sweet to eat we hardly even need to discuss it. Our go-to place is Double Dip Gallery. It is an ice cream place at 222 West Pine Street in Downtown Lodi. It doubles as an art gallery and my family first went there because my mom had a friend who’s art was being sh...
