The Flash 2×19: Back To Normal

Take a Bite of the Silver Sandwich

Or: How do we treat the ones we love?

Westallen is moving at a greater speed than Barry is now. I’m okay with this.

The last episode implied that Barry and Zoom both had a similar trauma and that they each took a separate road to become the men they are today. They are now almost exact opposites. One is a villain the other is a hero, one kills the other doesn’t. One is all for himself and the second cares about others. That’s pretty basic hero/villain set up, we’ve seen it before in stories and we will again. The one thing we are seeing that these two have in common are that they both love.

That said, there’s an interesting theme in this episode about the different approaches to love as it explores love for family, romantic love, and even hero worship. And in that exploration another question is…

The Flash 2×18: Versus Zoom

Take a Bite of the Silver Sandwich

Or: The Road Less Taken

This ep is a sea of feels, and I am happily drowning in them. There is a whole lot happening in this episode. It feels like an ep that simultaneously puts to bed and sets up a lot of things. So it’s a true crossroad ep, where things get settled and new things happen and where you started is not where you end up. On the plus side, WestAllen is truly on the way and I am SO HAPPY to see it. On the minus side…well…let’s dig onto the ep.

The episode begins with a Barry voice-over, mulling over the fact that sometimes terrible things happen to children. Sometimes that thing becomes the defining factor of your life and who you end up being. It was mentioned in a previous episode and is driven home again here that the reason Barry came through his mother’s…

Star Wars: The Prequels Are Beloved By The Fans

The Midi-Chlorian Center

The Star Wars Prequels (Episode I-II-III) are often attacked by ubertrolls who have nothing to do but spread hate on this part of the Star Wars saga and it is in “popular belief” that the PT are the worse and no one loves them for numerous reasons, well it is not true, many, many people love the Prequels trilogy and we are going to talk about it in this article. Those PT haters are building their arguments on pure lies. One of the examples of their reasons why the PT are horribles : “It’s all CGI.” Well, that’s all lies. EVERY Star Wars movie is a mix of what we call Practical Effects (miniature sets, sets that are built, vehicles built …) and special effects also known as CGI. You can see some of the Prequels set pics on the official Star Wars website and oh there are REAL sets…

Behind the Scenes, My Food Photography Set-Up

No Thyme to Waste

I’ve had quite a few inquiries about my images and posts over the past few months, and I thought it would be a nice idea to post some of my set ups for you guys to see. There aren’t really ‘secrets’ to good food photography, but in the beginning I felt there was some kind of hidden information I needed to advance my skills. I kept hitting a metaphorical brick wall with my photography, and I just couldn’t seem to mimic those food photos I aspired to. I kept reading articles with titles like “secrets of food photography” and “all you need to know, blog food photography”. But the ‘secret’ is… there’s no secret. The three keys to producing enticing looking food photos are: a tripod, the right light, and some version of Photoshop for minor edits. With these three things you can succeed at the very least as a beginner.

The light. My…

Shipper Wars: The Flash

Science Fixation

With the new photos released for the upcoming second half of The Flash, it appears that the beloved comic book couple will finally be cannon on the show. However, this is an adaptation and anything can happen–Iris West could break up with Barry or the two could not be endgame depending on what the writers and fans want. So, which ship/otp should win the shipper wars? We will let fans decide.

Westallen

There is no doubt that the chemistry between Iris West and Barry Allen is beyond perfect. These two actors did their homework and understood quickly the hidden attraction of their characters. Barry Allen’s childhood crush, Iris, is the only person he would truly do anything to protect. Even though Barry has loved Iris for most of his life he never told her in fear that he would lose her.

Pros: These two have an amazing dynamic and a long…
