• I have been taking a deeper look at history of the Southwest and Mesoamerica. Mostly, to understand how I got here. This has led to me to wonder, when will they make a game about some of this stuff? We’ve seen Assassins Creed go about everywhere, but we’ve never seen anything about this part of […]

  • Dear Diary,

    I know it’s been a while but I need to tell you about why I was thinking of Saturn devouring his son today. I use an app called Day One for a digital journal. It’s great at being readily available to capture any thought when I’m at my keyboard or on my phone. I’d recommend […]

  • I won’t entertain any logical reason for this name change. From a brand perspective, Max reminds me of Cinemax and the reason I am subscribed to “Max” (lol, I don’t like how that sounds) is the HBO name. Max: The One to Watch for HBO You’d think sensibility would win out in the end but, […]

In the first episode we introduce ourselves, stumble through the history we were taught, and then discuss how local sites helped put ancient Phoenix into […]

  • If you are a progressive or a leftist, the Democratic Party is unfortunately all you have. To compound that, said party is really into the idea of courting the Republican base instead of working for their Democratic base. This courting includes Democrats to distance themselves from certain “bad” words. One of these words is socialism. […]
