Call Me By Your Name by Andre Aciman

I typically find it very hard to get sincerely excited about gay romance novels. Usually they’re overly campy and devolve into erotica by page 10, which I guess is alright up to a certain point, but you’re still left wanting more after the fact. I can honestly say Call Me By Your Name delivers in a way I never expected. ... Read More »

Harry Potter – Your Favorite and Why

If you’ve been following our vlogs on YouTube (and if you aren’t – then howww did you find this website lol), you’ll know that I’ve been recently rereading the Harry Potter series while doing the bookclub.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything on the site, so what better way to get back in the swing of things than with a review of one of the most disturbing books I’ve ever read. A great book, don’t get me wrong, but definitely disturbing. In fact, it has been one of the most rewarding reads I’ve had in ... Read More »

“Take Hate Off the Plate” by Chef Art Smith

I know, I’m starting to get tired of this Chick-fil-A discussion, too. Believe me, Will and I have both Tumbled and Tweeted about it, and watched plenty of YouTube videos about it. I, personally have written a piece on this site about it, and have made a video ranting about the whole controversy. Since making that rant last week, I’ve ... Read More »
