Stranger Things 2: Dart the Demodog-Flirting with Danger

By: John D. Pepe For me Dart represents how things in life sometimes grow out of control. These “things” usually begin innocuously. Harmless and experimental, a new discovery in our lives, just like Dart, who was a new life form the party had never seen before. Dart, at first, was meek and docile. Just a…

Justice League-“Unity Breeds Hope”

By: John D. Pepe The world has lost its greatest hero. A hero who was the protector of the entire planet. The meaning of the symbol emblazoned on that lost hero’s chest-hope. And in losing this hero the world has lost hope. With Superman gone, violence, acts of war, and terrorism are all on the…

The Last Jedi: When It all Fades to Grey

  Finding balance in life is a constant effort. Not everyone gets what you are doing. Why are you making this change?  This isn’t like you, what’s wrong with you? You’ve changed and I am not sure I like it. Statements like that would make me furrow my brow, too. Being an agent of change makes…
