Arsenal Review: The Honest Debate, Part II

On October 26, 2006, Prince Phillip, Duke of Edinburgh officially opened the newly-christened Emirates Stadium at Ashburton Grove.  A project that was born in the late 1990s, Emirates Stadium (or Arsenal Stadium or Ashburton Grove) ran into lots of issues and problems before, during and after it was approved for construction in 2002.  The royal […]

Dishonored Review: Feed Him to the Hungry Rats for Dinner

Arsenal Review: The Honest Debate, Part I

I’ve been working on this piece a few times and couldn’t wrap my head around how I wanted to present it.  Fortunately for me, @lordhillwood and his great blog piece, They Don’t Like the C-word, provided a great jumping off point.  So I’ll follow his lead into this breach and see if there can be […]

There’s two kind of Bond movies.  The first kind is the “Bond versus the Super-Villain Aimed at World Domination/Destruction.”  Whether that’s Goldfinger, Thunderball, Moonraker, Tomorrow Never Dies or The Spy Who Loved Me, there’s plenty of options there.  The second kind is the “Bond versus Vengeful Villain/More Personal Danger.”  Licence to Kill, Goldeneye, For Your […]
