Post-Pandemic Check-in: Orchids, tin whistle, and video game music! ♪

Hey, friends! It’s been ages and I hope you have all been well. While I’m still not in the writing mood very often, I wanted to show readers what hobby activities I’ve been up to this past year, which is mainly growing a LOT of houseplants, and also playing the tin whistle and making nerdy video game, anime, and film song covers!

Like many, I got into houseplants during the pandemic and it’s honestly just so pleasant, peaceful, and rewarding. I especially like to acquire rarer species and propagate them to sell as a side hustle. I keep a ton of them in my office. All this green has turned my office into an indoor, magical fairy garden and I just love it. Turns out I had no idea I had such a green thumb. What a pleasant surprise!

Check out some of these breathtaking orchid blooms from the last … Read More

Overwatch 2 – Lifeweaver Hero Guide

Overwatch 2 Season 4 has arrived, bringing a new battle pass, a ton of quality-of-life updates and the new support hero Lifeweaver. Lifeweaver is a support who has a massive kit, with plenty of abilities to keep track of and utilize. This also makes him a bit more complicated to use than some of the previous support heroes, requiring very strong knowledge to get the most out of him. Here’s how to best use Lifeweaver in Overwatch 2.

Lifeweaver overview

For primary weapons, Lifeweaver has his Healing Blossom, which can be charged to heal 65 HP. Lifeweaver can swap to his Thorn Volley, which operates like a close-range submachine, but you will have to switch frequently if you want to deal damage and keep up with your healing duties, with swapping taking about a second for the animation to complete.

Lifeweaver is equipped with three active abilities. The first is … Read More

James Bond Casting Director Says Younger Actors Have Lacked “Gravitas” For The Role

The James Bond casting director for more than 40 years has explained why the producers have never cast a “younger” person for the lead role. Speaking to RadioTimes, Debbie McWilliams–who has been the James Bond casting director since 1981–said younger actors who tried out over the years lacked a level of “gravitas” required for the role.

“We did look at a lot of younger actors and I just don’t think they had the gravitas, they didn’t have the experience, they didn’t have the mental capacity to take it on, because it’s not just the part they’re taking on, it’s a massive responsibility,” McWilliams said. “So we kind of scrubbed that idea and went back to the drawing board and started again.”

Of course, “young” is a relative term. The youngest actor to ever play James Bond was George Lazenby, who was 29 during the filming of 1969’s On Her … Read More
