Killing Season: I Had Better Things to Do, But Not Many

By Vince Gaetano I once heard a story, possibly apocryphal, about Ernest Hemingway. Having finished a manuscript, he gave it to a friend to have evaluated. His friend lavished the work with praise, and then suggested that maybe – just maybe – Hemingway needed to shave thirty or so pages from the final draft. Hemingway … Continue reading

Farmed and Dangerous – More Like Smarmed and Dangerous

By Stephen Warren So, I saw a commercial a while back for the restaurant Chipotle.  It was about a show that they were going to produce on Hulu called Farmed and Dangerous.  The trailer makes me think this will be an informative, fun way to show how Chipotle uses sustainable crops, free-range meat, etc.  I was … Continue reading

Cosmopolis is 80 percent … Continue reading

Upside Down: It Would Make a Great Desktop Background

By Nick Benson Jim Sturgess and Kirsten Dunst try their best to breathe life into the artificial world that director Juan Solanas has constructed, but Upside Down puts too much emphasis on world building to concern itself with character or story. The world of Upside Down is as follows. There are two planets that mirror … Continue reading

In Case You Missed It: January Podcast Roundup

Compiled by Netschtick Team Podcasts are great. They can teach us things, make us laugh, and keep us company on a long, lonely night. But much like those emails from the IRS I keep getting, un-listened-to episodes can pile up quickly and become too overwhelming. Instead of doing what I do with those IRS emails … Continue reading

Not Not True: More of My Musings

By Vince Gaetano As the self-proclaimed “Average Joes” of the online entertainment business, we here at Netschtick may not always know what we’re talking about.
