What the hell is this place?


I'm just a guy. A guy named Nevets. This website (or blog? I dunno) consists of a random collection of things I've either written, drawn, recorded, or am simply interested in at any particular moment. I can't promise to upkeep the place and there's no particular niche to be found. I just wanted a home for various outlets of expression and perhaps the occasional sprinkle of verbal ventilation. That being said, I'm not above tossing in an ad here and there or plugging some of my old clickbaity articles (I'm broke, alright, every penny helps). For the most part, however, I'm just trying to keep myself amused. So... enjoy?

Prince Avalanche (2013) - My Explanation of the Film and Its Ending

Prince Avalanche (2013) movie explained
Recently, I decided to rewatch a little known 2013 movie entitled Prince Avalanche, starring Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch, about two highway road workers (one younger and one older) who spend the summer working together, away from their usual city lives. It's a strange and somewhat confusing movie, part comedic and part dramatic, that isn't very well understood by most who watch it. After finishing my rewatch of it, I recalled a post I'd made on the IMDb message boards giving my own interpretation of what the film could possibly mean. Sadly, however, those message boards are now gone. So I've decided to archive my explanation here today. Enjoy!

Breaking Down Olivia Munn's Criticism Over #MeToo Backlash


Being a cord cutter and a longtime non-fan regular Joe's (regular Jane's?) gabbing about politics, I didn't happen to catch Olivia Munn's recent appearance on The View.
