My Favorite Post-Apocalypse Movies of the 1990’s…

The 90's.... it was only a decade prior to this one that I was just a kid.  Now I was a soldier, a combat veteran, a college graduate, a husband (well, for a year anyway - Gads, what an utter slut!), and working man.  Didn't stop my inner nerd from enjoying that which I enjoyed most... …

Mad Max, Death, and Justice … Guest blog from Asher.

I was recently contacted by a fella... a quick fella... who altered my perspective on both art and the way Mad Max (Fury Road specifically) can be interpreted.

Who’s my favorite writer? Glad you asked…

 When I was in Junior High ('82-'83), I found a book in the school library called The Long  Afternoon of Earth by Brian Aldiss.  I thought it was absolutely fascinating!  It was an abridged  version of Hothouse, but I wouldn't learn that until many years later.  Flash forward to sometime in the mid-90's and I …

My Favorite Post-Apocalypse Movies of the 1970’s…
