From the Jihad to the Yeehaw


We’ve seen it time and time again, every time and every culture assumes villains for themselves. They come in all shapes and sizes but the tune they all play is pretty much the same. First, you cause a panic, be it intentional or it simply happened by chance. Regardless, you take some sort of event and portray it as the times to come if an action isn’t taken.

It’s the end of the world as we know it (and I feel fine)

The Boy who cried Crucifix


It is not often one comes across a man whose very name is synonymous with grandeur, power and extravagance. Of those select men, Julius Caesar is one of the greatest of them all. His contribution to history is so immense that even today we can see his actions at work. Continue reading
