More Awesome Yu-Gi-Oh! Cards (Every Other Friday)

Hello fellow Duelists! It’s Friday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at some more awesome cards. Now, let’s duel!

  • Power of the Guardians Type: Equip Spell Appearance: A sacred area with rainbow rays shining all around it. Effect: If an attack is declared by the equipped monster: Place 1 Spell Counter on this card. The equipped monster gains 500 ATK/DEF for each Spell Counter on this card. If the equipped monster would be destroyed by battle or card effect, you can remove 1 Spell Counter from your field, instead.

This is a very unique card that is a ton of fun to use. Unlike many Spell Counter cards, this one can be equipped to any monster, and the continuous stat increase is always a good thing. Plus, you have a lot of protection against effects if you amass enough counters. 



  • Strong Wind Dragon Type: Dragon/Effect Attribute: Wind Appearance: A very cool looking turquoise dragon with large wings. 6 Stars ATK: 2400 DEF: 1000 Effect: Cannot be destroyed by battle with a monster that has the same ATK. If this card is Tribute Summoned by Tributing a Dragon-Type monster: It gains ATK equal to half the original ATK of the Tributed monster. If this card attacks a Defense Position monster, inflict piercing damage to your opponent.

This is a very good 1 Tribute monster with pretty decent stats. It is usually run in a variety of decks that use Dragons. Alone, it is a powerhouse that cannot be taken out by suicide attacks. The awesome attack boost is also quite incredible, leaving this creature a real force to be reckoned with.

More Awesome Custom Hearthstone Cards Part 2

Hello fellow Tavern Dwellers! It’s time for another Hearthstone post! I really enjoyed doing the last custom post, so I decided to do part 2. Now, let’s have a brawl!

  • Colossal Infernal by SpazzMaticus Type: Warlock Epic Minion Tribe: Demon Appearance: A gigantic green infernal. Mana Cost: 10 Attack: 10 Health: 10 Effect: Battlecry: Deal 5 damage to all other characters.

The Warlock was always a “high risk-high reward” class, and this card fits that mold to a T! It’s a perfect late game card, and can be used as a board clear. Its massive body can also handle a lot of damage.  Keep watch of your health though, as 5 damage is quite a lot. 



  • Book of Light by ShadowDragonType: Priest Epic Spell Appearance: A flashing book of ancient knowledge. Mana cost: 5 Effect: Add 3 random Priest spells to your hand.

What we have here is a Cabalist’s Tome for Priests. The cost is equivalent to the mage version, and the randomness factor really pleases me. You could get some board clear utility, healing, summoning, or spell damage increasing tools. I’d love to see this card in an upcoming expansion.

Even More Awesome Comic Book Characters (Every Other Tuesday)

Hello fellow Comic Book Fans! It’s Tuesday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at some more fascinating characters. Now, let’s begin!

  • Parasite Real Name: Joshua Michael Allen Status: Villain Creator: DC First Appeared: Action Comics #340 (August 1966) Ht and Wt: Variable Green Eyes No Hair Powers/Abilities: Life-energy absorption, size alteration, temporary access to meta human powers through absorption

Joshua was an extremely rude bike messenger that often took people’s packages for his own. One day, he ran into a strange green blob, and his life changed forever. No noticing the downed power line, Josh stuck it and lost consciousness. He woke up in a hospital, where he was diagnosed with alien flu. He was then brought to S.T.A.R. Labs for further research, when tragedy struck! The machines the scientists were using triggered a mutation in the virus, imbuing Josh with exceptional absorption abilities. Originally horrified and depressed, Josh sought to end his life, only to be stopped by the Man of Steel. This encounter changed the mutated creature, and started his obsession with absorbing powerful Meta Humans. He still remains a highly dangerous foe, continuously waiting for the perfect time to attack Superman.



  • Shaggy Man Real Name: Shaggy Man Status: Genetic Experiment (Villain) Ht: 8’2” Wt: 550 lbs Eye Color: Red  Hair Color: Brown First Appeared: Justice League of America #45 (June 1st, 1966) Creator: DC Powers/Abilities: Insane superhuman strength, Superhuman endurance, Regeneration, Neigh invulnerability, Limited intellect

Shaggy Man was the horrible genetic experiment of the villainous Professor Ivo. He was created from the artificial synthesis of tissue and fur. Ivo sent the exceedingly strong behemoth to battle the Justice League, where it nearly took down the entire team. However, Hawkman discovered the monstrosity’s weakness was his thick hair, and with the combined effort of Katana, the two heroes took down this horrible abomination.

Some of My Favorite Cult Films Part 1

Hello fellow Movie Lovers! It’s time for a very special post! I have a very soft spot for the bizarre side of cinema, and think people can make some pretty impressive films with a low budget. The following is a multipart post about some of my favorite Cult Films, and a short spoiler-free summary of each. Be warned though, some of these films contain some pretty controversial content.  Let me know some of your favorites in the comments’ section below, and I may feature them in an upcoming post. Now, grab so popcorn, and let’s begin!

  • The Room Type: Black Comedy, “Romance”, Tragedy,  Directed, Produced, and Written by Tommy Wiseau Rated: R (Language, Violence, and Sexuality) Date Released: June 27th, 2003 Starring: Greg Sestero, Juliet Danielle, Tommy Wiseau, Carolyn Minnott, and Philip Haldiman Runtime: 1 hr. 39 min 

No Cult Film list is complete without this “Painfully Funny” entry. The Room is a massive train wreck created by the enigmatic Tommy Wiseau. It has horrible acting, a shallow plot, and is ironically funny as hell. The story is about a wealthy banker named Johnny (Wiseau) who has a backstabbing fiancée, Lisa (Danielle) that cheats on him with his best friend, Mark (Sestero). What follows is a horribly made love story, that’ll will leave you in stitches.  The film is known as the Citizen Kane of Bad Movies, and has a huge cult following. The story of the film’s production is also quite fascinating, and Greg has released a book on it called The Disaster Artist.

  • Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead Directed by: Lloyd Kauffman Written by: Gabriel Friedman Produced by: Andrew Deemer Not Rated (But Probably R for Gore, Blood, Sex, Strong Violence, Politically Incorrect Humor, Gross Scenes, Strong Language, Nudity, and Alcohol) Starring: Jason Yachanin, Kate Graham, and Allyson Sereboff Release Date: July 6th, 2012 Genres: Comedy, Musical, and Horror Runtime: 1hr 43 min

If you like incredibly comedic Body Horror films, you’ll fall in love with this film. Be warned though, it’s a Troma film, so expect gratuitous violence, sex, and other gross bodily functions. The plot tells the story of a military fast food restaurant called the American Chicken Bunker. It just so happens to built on ancient Indian burial grounds, so all sorts of chaos ensues. All of the main characters are named after fast food restaurants, and this really adds to the film’s charm. It’s also part musical, and the songs will have you dying of laughter all the way through. 


More Delicious Foods From Around The World (Every Other Friday)

Hello fellow food lovers! It’s Friday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at some more delicious foods. Now, let’s dig in!

  • Gulha is a snack food that comes from the Maldives. It’s made from wheat flour, rice dough, tuna, chili, onion, and grated coconut. It’s usually eaten with sweetened hot tea.



  • Mattar paneer is a spicy dish that comes from India. It’s made with a tomato-based sauce, peas, paneer, and garam marsala. It’s completely vegetarian, and eaten with rice and naan.


Asher’s Pub (Thursdays)

Hello fellow Cicerones! It’s Thursday, and my Pub is open once again! I hope you guys are ready for some awesome drinks. Now, let me fix you up something special!

  • Leaning Tower Cocktail


  • 2 oz gin
  • 1 tsp dry vermouth
  • 2 dashes orange bitters

Directions: Pour the gin, vermouth and bitters into a mixing glass half-filled with crushed ice. Stir well. Strain into a cocktail glass, and serve.



  • Foxy Lady Cocktail


  • 1 oz amaretto almond liqueur
  • 1 oz brown creme de cacao
  • 1 oz cream

Directions:  Pour ingredients into a stainless steel shaker over ice, shake until completely done, then strain into a chilled stemmed glass or Rocks glass filled with ice.


Awesome Cards From Custom Hearthstone Part 1

Hello fellow Tavern Dwellers! It’s time for another Hearthstone post! It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of the card game, and I love the creativity that goes into making each card. Custom Hearthstone is both a subreddit and website that lets people from around the world design cards. This post will be covering some of my absolute favorite cards made on the site. I will be posting their usernames as well, so that you can check them out at your leisure. Now, let’s begin!

  • Senegos Created by: TheGronne  Tribe: Dragon Mana Cost: 8  Type: Legendary Mage Minion Attack: 4 Health: 12 Appearance: A really cool azure dragon with light wings. Effect: Counter the first spell your opponent casts each turn.

This card is absolutely incredible! The stats are extremely fair for an 8 cost minion, and the effect is very unique. You essentially get a “counter spell” minion that activates every turn. If this ever makes it into the real game, Secret Mage decks would become meta defining.



  • Pirate Invasion! by Braydentheco Type: Warrior Epic Spell Mana Cost: 4 Appearance: A group of people being raided by pirates. Effect: Shuffle 10 copies of random Pirates into your deck. They cost (1) less. 

This is another ultra inventive card that could make Pirate Warrior work. It seems like an “Academic Espionage” for the Warrior class, and probably has insane synergies with other pirates. Patches can be summoned for free, and you can easily fill the field with strong minions. Tell me what you think of this card in the comments’ section below.




More Crappy Book Covers (Every Other Tuesday)

Hello fellow book lovers! It’s Tuesday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at some more crappy covers. Now, let’s begin!

  • Vampire Among the Zombies: Nightwalkers by Howell Roland Jr Date Released: July, 9 2015 146 Pages Genre: Children’s Horror Quick Summary: A 17 year-old experiences the zombie apocalypse in Florida. 

This generic zombie apocalypse novel has one of the crappiest covers I’ve ever seen.  It looks like it was made in 10 minutes on Microsoft Paint! The top of the piece has pathetically done mouth with dollar store vampire fangs. Then, we get to the center, and see the most *insert town name here* I’ve ever seen.  The only good thing about this work, is the genuinely well made zombie near the bottom of the page. 



  • The Wizard From Earth by S.J. Ryan Genre: Science Fiction Release Date: October, 2 2014 491 Pages Short Summary: A teenager gets transported into an unknown world.

This book’s cover is one of the worst I’ve ever seen! It’s an outdoor piece with many bizarre things going on. The top of the work has a poorly drawn and peppermint colored balloon. Then we get to the bottom of the piece, and all hell breaks loose! We get probably the most horribly rendered people, and the art in total is complete trash.
