Grumpy Young Men

Today we review one of Hemingway’s best novels, The Old Man and the Sea. We cover its unusual metaphors, the consistent writing style, and the paragraphs and paragraphs of boat terminology. Also, three minutes of moon talk!

Also, why we hate incomplete box sets.

In tandem with our “top ten movies” and “top ten video games” episodes, today we discuss our own personal top ten books. Join us as we rave about green lights, a single month in mid-19th-century, Michael Grant, Suzanne Collins’ better series, djinni, and inevitably, skeleton detectives. 

Also, why we hate productivity steam.

Today, we review the hit mobile game, The Room. We discuss some of the problems with the puzzles, the lackluster story, and the incredible mechanics and general “feel” of this game.

Also, why we hate the timing of illness.
