10 Best Things: Tower of God

It's been forever since I've done a "10 Best Things" post, and I'm not exactly writing one now because Tower of God was more outstanding than anything else I've seen recently, but just because I've remembered how much low-effort fun this kind of post is. You will find that this list consists of oddly specific items,… Continue reading 10 Best Things: Tower of God

What Makes a Spoiler a Spoiler?

This is something I wonder about sometimes, which a certain Tweet caused me to reflect on again: https://twitter.com/spookyredh/status/1262012943144636417 People have different degrees of tolerance when it comes to spoilers. For me, as I'm sure it is for most people, my avoidance of spoilers is dependent on how much I care about continuing a show. I've… Continue reading What Makes a Spoiler a Spoiler?
