RV Show Reviews: The Handmaid’s Tale

WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD FOR THE FIRST TWO SEASONS OF THE HANDMAID’S TALE!

 

 

Though like usual I’m late to the game, I decided to check out The Handmaid’s Tale.  I’ve heard a lot of good things about the show, and finally decided I would take a look.  Besides knowing the basic premise, I didn’t really know what to expect.  Below are my thoughts on the show.  If you’re reading this from the future, this review will only cover the first two seasons, as that’s what’s out at the time of writing this.  Also, a usual reminder that the following review is my own opinion.  You should draw your own conclusions and not hinge on my words.

Webcomic/Indie Comic Reader Habits Survey Results Part 2

As I explained on Wednesday, at the end of June I conducted a survey through Comic Tea Party to assess reader habits for webcomics/indie comics.  I went over the results for the first ten questions in that post, so if you missed out, check in on it.

In this post, I would like to do two things.  First off, I’m going to discuss the optional question 11 which many participants did fill in and that I have aggregated to the best of my ability.  Second, I am going to discuss my own thoughts on the results of the survey as well as some areas where there is room for error.  Of course, if you don’t care about my thoughts, you are highly welcome to skip them and draw your own conclusions.

Webcomic/Indie Comic Reader Habits Survey Results Part 1

For those who don’t know, I am the host of a weekly, webcomic book club known as Comic Tea Party.  At the end of June, through Comic Tea Party, I surveyed webcomic/indie comic readers and gathered data on their reading habits.  This included questions about reading frequency and how they interacted with the comics they read.  The survey received 188 responses, and today I would like to go through the data and share what we have learned with the survey.

Note: This survey had 10 required questions and 1 optional question.  This post will seek to only aggregate the data for the first 10.  Question 11, which was the optional fill-in, will be aggregated in Part 2.

Some Thoughts on “Other Kingdom”

Is it worthwhile to learn the classics?  This is a question posed to some of the characters at the very beginning of the “Other Kingdom” by E.M. Forster.  After some debate, one of the characters poignantly says the classics teach them how to avoid things.  While the story is certainly about more than that, there is a related theme that ties in that message: the importance of escapism.  As per usual, the following is my own interpretation of the piece, and everyone is entitled to their own opinions.

Rebel’s Beginner’s Tips #2 for RPG Maker

Long, long ago in untold ages, I wrote about some beginner’s tips for making a game in RPG Maker.  They weren’t anything fancy, but useful items to know if you’ve never used the engine before.  It’s been a long while since I tackled the subject, though, so this week I thought I’d go back and talk about the topic again.  There are plenty more idiosyncrasies you have to pick up when learning the engine, and I definitely have more tips to share.  Like the last time I discussed the subject though, remember that these tips are going to be geared more towards the modern RPG Makers (so RPG Maker VX/VX Ace and RPG Maker MV).
