Interview with Peter S. Beagle

Date: April 21, 2014

(Back in April of 2014, Aaron Golden and Gregory Milne were lucky enough to get a chance to sit down with legendary writer, Peter S. Beagle, and his agent, Conner Cochran. They sat down and talked for a couple of hours about everything surrounding the creation, loss, and claiming of the Last Unicorn, but, sadly, the sound file of the interview was damaged. A lot of effort was put into saving that file, and we finally managed to get it transcribed a couple of months ago. At the time, we sat down and wondered about when the best time to release it was, now that we’d had to delay the interview so long, and considering what a gift we thought this interview was, it made sense to us, for us to release it as a gift to you. So, without further ado…)

Fifty Shades of Do Not Want

Books & Writing, Fail, Lifestyle, Showcase, The Truth

February 13, 2015

Fifty Shades of Grey is a textbook for abuse. It terrifies me that people are going to read this book or see this movie and think that this is an okay way to act, that any of the things that Christian Grey does are even the slightest shade of okay. They aren’t. As a fantasy, it’s alright – but this isn’t being portrayed as fantasy, it’s being portrayed as a blueprint and a relationship to aspire to.

Book Review – MYTHS ARE F***ING GREAT

Books & Writing, Reviews

January 20, 2015

Someone once described me as a “myth-head.” I’m not sure how I feel about that, but I am a massive fan of mythology in general. I’ve got a pretty good grasp of some obscure mythologies and a lot of the more popular ones, and I like hunting down new translations and new legends and stories. There are some fascinating things to be learned about the people that built those myths and about how they still resonate with us today. (more…)

January 12, 2015

Constantine - Season 1“Hey, wanna watch Constantine?” I asked my friend.

“The movie with Keanu Reeves?” He scratched the back of his neck, looking mystified.

“No, no, there’s a TV series.”

“Is it based on the Keanu Reeves movie?”

“No, it’s based on Hellblazer, the comics that the Keanu Reeves movie was based on.”

“Oh. Uh, sure.” He sounded doubtful, but by the time we were done watching the first episode he was hooked. (more…)

Banshee – The Screaming It Will Not Stop

January 5, 2015

“Hey, man, have you seen Banshee?” a friend of mine asked me.

“No, never heard of it,” I answered, but I already knew I was going to. He had that look in his eye, that one that only shines when he’s found something unspeakably cool. “What is it?”

“It’s like a really drawn out heist movie,” he said, scratching the back of his neck. “Only, you know, it works.”

“Really.”

“I might not be explaining it properly. You have Cinemax, right?” (more…)

Book Review – Cat’s Maw

Books & Writing, Reviews

November 18, 2014

Fourteen years ago, three kids living in the wilds of North Vancouver came together and changed the world. One of their number, Brooke Burgess, had a vision that he called Broken Saints, and with the help of the other two he fashioned one of the first online animated graphic novels. It was beautifully rendered and lovingly told, the final chapter released online twelve years ago with two subsequent DVD releases. (more…)
