Conan Gray’s ‘Telepath’: why less is more

“Telepath” is an amalgamation of old and new. While the track is nostalgic, reminiscent of ’80s disco music, the lyrics detail the ever-so-relatable experience of a dying relationship.

How (and why) Minecraft YouTube raised hundreds of thousands for cancer research

As someone who has (thankfully) never had to experience the anguish of having a loved one suffer through cancer, I foolishly thought it wasn’t something that affected me. Since then, I’ve taken time to educate myself on sarcoma, which, due to its rarity, has had relatively less research.

Live-actions suck, watch animation instead

Animation is beyond capable of creating captivating worlds and evoking emotional feelings that leave watchers wanting more, but that doesn’t seem to stop directors from creating “live-action” adaptations that are hard to view as anything but money-grabs.
