My Yu-Gi-Oh! February 2023 banlist predictions

Ok, let’s just get this over with. We all know what decks (or deck in this case), needs to be addressed on the upcoming banlist, so you don’t need me to give you a particularly intricate analysis of the current format. However, there is something that I’d like to talk about first before we get into the meat and potatoes of this article, namely that mini banlist we got at the beginning of December, released...

The Yu-Gi-Oh! October 2022 banlist aftermath

This banlist was so bad that it made me whish COVID had killed me. I would’ve come up with a better opening sentence, but I refuse to put more effort into this article than Konami did into their banlist.

Once again, I recommend watching the actual film itself before reading any further for any of this to make sense. Here’s a link to Meshes of...

At Land – A very serious analysis

Here’s a little story for ya: back in 2017, I briefly became fascinated with the works of American experimental filmmaker Maya Deren. First of all, let’s just let the fact that 2017 was 5 YEARS AGO sink in. Done? Okay, so whilst I was studying fine art at college, I ended up working on a project that involved watching some arty-farty films. Some of them were good, some of them sucked. I can’t remember what...
