Black Panther

Black Panther is the 18th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It was directed by Ryan Coogler and stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan and Lupita Nyong’o. I think I got myself over hyped for this one. I went into Black Panther hoping for a glorious renaissance that would enlighten the Marvel Cinematic Universe and take it to heights I never could have dreamed of. Instead I came out thinking the more things change, the more they stay the same. Black Panther is an absolutely  stunning showcase of just how well oiled the Marvel movie machine has become. Black Panther…

Being Single on Valentine’s Day: Do’s and Do Not’s

It’s that day. The fateful day when millions of couples will celebrate their enduring love for each other. For the rest of us, we might wish it was just Wednesday. Some (including myself in the past) even mock Valentine’s Day because we think it’s a purely corporate holiday meant to exploit people’s love or make it abundantly clear who isn’t in a relationship. This group of people refer to February 14th not as Valentine’s Day, but rather Singles Awareness Day. Guess what? We’re all being a bunch of Debbie friggen downers when we do that. Think about it, Singles Awareness…

A Hollow Mockery of it’s Predecessor: Kingsman: The Golden Circle

I had the chance earlier today to sit down and watch Kingsman: The Golden Circle. For those unaware, this is a sequel to the hit spy movie Kingsman: The Secret Service that came out in 2014. Both films were directed by Matthew Vaughn, who is also a credited writer for both films. The Golden Circle stars Taron Egerton as Eggsy, and also features Colin Firth, Mark Strong, Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore, Pedro Pascal, Channing Tatum, Hanna Alström, Edward Holcroft, Halle Berry, and Sir Elton John. Golden Circle’s story follows some time after the events of The Secret Service and while everything…

The Best Burger in Provo: Me

The time has come for the thrilling conclusion of my quest to find the bets place to get a burger in Provo, Utah. While technically there are still other burger joints that exist in Provo, I only meant for this to be a summer thing, and we’re halfway through September now… so gotta wrap it up. Why finish with me though? Do I really think that I have a shot of making a better burger than all of those establishments, most of which have been open longer than I’ve been alive? I mean yeah, kinda. I’m the only judge here…

Best Burger in Provo: Mooyahs + Others

Alright, Summer over and I thought I’d be well done with this thing by now, but to my surprise there are an awful lot of burger places in Provo, Utah. As of this post I’ll have been to fourteen different burger joints and there are still at least a dozen to go. Frankly though I’m kind of done with this, especially since I’ve found a number of really good places and I haven’t been able to go back and eat at them because I always feel kind of guilty that I’m not going to a new place and being as…

Nostalgic Eating

I need to start this blog post with a disclaimer. The burger place that I ate from for this post was Brigham Young University’s (BYU) own Creamery outlet. I’m not biased towards this establishment because I’m currently enrolled at BYU, rather I’m biased towards it because when I first attended BYU all the way back in Summer/Fall of 2011, I ate there a lot and have quite a few memories attached to the place, and even more memories attached to the burgers I ordered so frequently from there. I would think that aside from my mother’s roasted potatoes (they’re actually…
