The Writer’s Everything 001 | Review

Along with his YouTube channel and fictional works, QJ Martin released the first issue of the The Writer’s Everything, a magazine geared to helping writers with…everything. The first issue can be found on his Patreon page. You do need a Patreon account to read it.

First, I liked the magazine’s brevity. The articles were short and to the point. There was also a little bit of humor mixed in with the professional tone. I did notice a few editing errors, such as missing words. But, for the most part, it is well polished.

The design was also amazing. I liked the sidebars which provided definitions and explanations. Also, the definitions were not full of jargon–professional or amateur writers could understand what was being said. The lines, as well as the columns, were clean and professional. The color scheme and fonts were eye-catching without being distracting.

On the subject of sidebars, one with short recommendations on pens or software would be nice. It could be as simple as the product’s title. I’d like to know what design software was used to make the magazine.

As for the articles, I found them friendly and easy to understand. I felt like I was receiving advice/information from a friend and not some “know-it-all” who wanted to show off their big words. I felt like Martin understood the subject and knew his audience.

In all, the magazine was informative while being short enough that I didn’t feel like a little kid going, “Are we there yet?” 4.8/5

Until the next wormhole…thanks for reading.

Love | Review

‪ ‬The poem “Love” by William Lynn recounts the story of someone who falls for another.

I enjoyed the line when the narrator asks if the person was an angel or a demon sent by the Devil to torment them. It showed the narrator’s feelings well and added the question of why they can’t be together; it makes you want to read more. My problem was that the question didn’t seem to be answered; I still want to know why they can’t be together.

The poem keeps the same tone very well. I can picture someone sitting at a desk thinking or even just sitting on a park bench watching their love interest from afar. You feel like you can get inside the narrator’s state of mind. I did notice a couple times when it felt like the rhythm faltered or became awkward; but for the most part, the poem flowed well.

I also had some trouble with getting lost in the lines. This is easily resolved by adding some verse/paragraph breaks now and then.

Another line I enjoyed was when the narrator mentions how people told them they didn’t know what love was. It gives the reader an idea of how old the narrator is. I could picture an older teen or young adult. The idea of a younger narrator is reinforced by the word choice. The flow and structure also makes it sound like a younger person speaking. I did not feel like I was brought out of the poem until the end.

While the poem was not perfect, it was well done and a great read. I enjoyed that I did not have to spend hours trying to pick it apart to understand it. Lynn does an excellent job of telling the reader what is happening while still giving you something to think about. 4.4/5

You can follow William Lynn on their blog or on Twitter.

Until the next wormhole…thanks for reading.

Rapid Reviews #2

The following are my opinion and do not reflect the opinion of any organization or person. May contain spoilers!

TEPPEN from GungHo Online Entertainment Inc: Various Capcom characters battle it out in this online card game. I really enjoy the cinematic cutscenes. Every graphic is amazing. The animations for the characters’ special power is also well done and gives the game that unique flair. I could tell that they really worked hard on it. I also enjoy that many of my favorite Capcom characters are together. But, it did take me awhile to understand how to play the game and navigate the menus and system. I still have no idea what the Zennys are for–I’m assuming its to buy cards (or is that the Souls).

awritersd1ary: A collection of well thought out and short poems. The poems pull at your heart and make you want to go “awww” after reading them. The backgrounds fit the poem well and are not distracting. I also had no trouble reading the text–it doesn’t blend into the background.

ratvault: A collection of comics featuring a rat detective, but don’t expect a great detective. The Ratective is kind of a goof. The artwork is high-level and amazing. The jokes are also very funny.

Pluto TV: An app or website that allows you to watch free TV. It has a nice collection of old and new shows and movies. I wish it allowed you to see further into the programming than three hours. If you sign up, you can save channels as favorites, but signing up is not required, which is nice. There are a few bugs still to work out, such as sometimes it’ll glitch and repeat a scene over and over until I close it. It works well for having something to watch during off-seasons and downtime. It is also great for having something on while your eating or taking a break.

Until the next wormhole…thanks for reading.

Rapid Reviews #1

The following are my opinion and do not reflect the opinion of any organization or person. May contain spoilers!

The Intruder: Kind of slow moving, but the creepy factor made it very interesting. At one point, you start wondering if the husband was the real villain.

UglyDolls: A good kids movie. There was a lot of singing; if you’re not a fan of musicals or lots of singing, you probably wouldn’t like this movie. I did like the message that they were trying to teach.

MAD Magazine #8: Contains your usual amount of jokes and crude humor. I enjoyed the short stories/articles. I felt like they did a good job of making fun of politics without it being on every page. They would make fun of superheroes then move on to politics and then make fun of vacations. I felt like I didn’t know what I was going to get next. Except for the little subscription cards that kept falling out–those I expected.

Nickelodeon’s Super Brawl Universe (mobile game): Has some bugs to be taken care of, such as sometimes it won’t respond to a tap. I like how you are able to pay for most things through slime. I didn’t feel forced into purchases. The matchmaking system seemed fair. The fights felt a little challenging but not frustrating. I enjoyed how the 1-v-1 fights don’t require energy. Also, the energy refills pretty fast.

“Let’s Meet Sonic” (OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes crossover event): So many Sonic the Hedgehog references! The episode didn’t feel rushed and the animation was smooth. It didn’t feel like they were trying to cram in a bunch of jokes or plot points into a small amount of time. I enjoyed that Tails actually had a part to play and wasn’t just standing there while Sonic did everything. You get to see a lot of character development in a short period of time. It also ends with the “Sonic Sez/Says” segment from the Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog cartoon, so wins all around.

Infinity Train Episodes 9-10 (Spoilers and Theories)

Here’s the complete playlist: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5

Infinity Train is a (as of now) mini-series airing on Cartoon Network from Aug. 5-9. For now, it is ten 11 minute episodes. Each night two episodes will air. The show is also available on the Cartoon Network app.

The event is over, but with the promise of “Infinity Train will return.” These last two episodes answered all of the important questions. I won’t go into them here because I don’t want to spoil it and I think you should watch it yourself. But, I will say the ending was amazing. I’ll also say that I’m glad it is revealed that the person vaporized by the light in the first episode wasn’t killed.

I do want to talk about the questions left unanswered. We find out who the Conductor is and why they are against Tulip while the train is for her. We also found out how the cars and cockroach things are created. We also get a hint at what the numbers mean. What isn’t answered is where the train came from and its purpose.

Lastly, we don’t know why the land the train travels through is barren and full of those creatures. I guess the shows hints at it a bit. Tulip is shown a picture of the train’s engine. She sees that it has cannons, which can be repurposed to make the cockroaches. The cannons can alter reality, such as changing Atticus into a cockroach or changing a computer into a corgi. So, it is possible the Conductor used the front cannons to shape the land it travels through.

But, what I mostly liked about the show is that the big questions were answered. It felt complete. I didn’t feel like, “Great, now I have to wait till the next season.” I was left feeling like the story was done, but at the same time excited for the next one.

I would highly recommend this show to those who like puzzles, mysteries, and fantasy. It comes with action, suspense, emotion, and humor. The animation is also great. The acting was well done. I continually felt like I was watching a high-budget movie. Also, it felt like the world was completely flushed out. 4.8/5

Until the next wormhole…thanks for reading.

Infinity Train Episodes 7-8 (Spoilers and Theories)

Here’s the complete playlist: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5

Infinity Train is a (as of now) mini-series airing on Cartoon Network from Aug. 5-9. For now, it is ten 11 minute episodes. Each night two episodes will air. The show is also available on the Cartoon Network app.

We’re getting close to the end now.

I didn’t like the “Chrome Car” episode as much as the others. It was your typical main character encounters their mirror self episode. I did like that the Infinity Train creators didn’t just have Mirror Tulip be evil. The mirror version was more like how Tulip wished she was. Mirror Tulip feels trapped and wants to explore the world. When Tulip says she can help, the mirror version says something like, “You’re trapped too. You hide out in your room all the time and never see the world.”

Episode 8, “Ball Pit Car,” had more to it however. It was nice to see Tulip having fun instead of being serious and logical. And just right when everything is happy, the wire monster arrives and the action kicks off. But, what I really liked about the episode is you finally learn who the wire creature is and you finally meet the Conductor. The Conductor does confirm that he/it is after Tulip for leaving her car and messing with his plans. You also get to see how the soul-sucking cockroaches from episode one are created.

In other words, a lot of questions get answered in this episode. But then more questions arise, like what is the Conductor’s plan? Also, it seems that the train wants Tulip to explore but the Conductor does not. It sounds like the Conductor is either malfunctioning or he’s gotten too big for his metal breeches and wants to “rule the train.” The Conductor seems to want the train to be more orderly and logical–kind of like how Tulip wanted it to be at first.

What do you think is the Conductor’s master plan? How is Tulip going to cope with the events of the “Ball Pit Car?” Let me know your thoughts in the comments.

Until next wormhole…thanks for reading!

Infinity Train Episodes 5-6 (Spoilers and Theories)

Here’s the complete playlist: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5

Infinity Train is a (as of now) mini-series airing on Cartoon Network from Aug. 5-9. For now, it is ten 11 minute episodes. Each night two episodes will air. The show is also available on the Cartoon Network app.

Tulip and gang once again run into the scheming cat. This time she offers Tulip answers to the number on her hand. Instead, Tulip is trapped within her own corrupted memories. Slowly, Tulip realizes it was her corrupting them; she was replacing memories of her parents fighting with happy memories. This revelation allows Tulip to escape. Once they leave, the wire-monster-thing shows up asking where the three heroes are.

At first, I thought that the monster was interested in Tulip; but after watching the sixth episode, I started to wonder. In the sixth episode, One-One keeps saying that the Unfinished Car is all his fault and tries to fix it. Tulip tells him not to blame himself for things beyond his control, much like she blames herself for her parents’ divorce. After the trio leave, we see a round lock next to the door that looks like One-One.

It seems that One-One left the car for some reason and the car was left unfinished. Also once the three passed the car’s gate, One-One greeted Atticus and Tulip like he’d never seen them before. It seems that leaving the car erased his memory.

In the fifth episode, the monster-thing asks, “Where are they?” I thought it meant the three friends, but One-One is also two beings so they could be “they,” and One-One is not in the Unfinished Car like he is supposed to be. We also see that the wire creature has a boss–someone who responses in musical tones.

I’m thinking the wire creature is some kind of security/repair system. Tulip has left her car; that is why the creature tells her to “take her seat.” Tulip is breaking the rules by wondering around. This would also explain why Tulip seems to be the only one interested in leaving their car. The wire creature is trying to get Tulip back to where she belongs. It is also trying to get One-One back to the Unfinished Car.

Finally, throughout the series there has been an on-going joke about Tulip being the only one with opposable thumbs. Opposable thumbs are usually seen as a sign of intelligence (i.e. tool-making). The one breaking the rules is a human. She leaves and ponders and experiments while the others are content to “stay in their seats.”

Do you think the wire creature is more interested in One-One than Tulip? Why do they keep mentioning opposable thumbs? What does the train want with the passengers? Tell me your theories in the comments.

Until next wormhole…thanks for reading.
