News! Guest Post at patsobo.com

I wanted to let you all know that I have written a guest post for a different website!

The article was about the Navier-Stokes equation and it’s use in the entertainment industry. For those of you who don’t know, the Navier-Stokes equations describes different fluid properties and predicts how a fluid will move within a particular environment. My article talks about how the Navier-Stokes equations are used in different video games and animated movies to make the movement of water and smoke more realistic.

The article is posted on patsobo.com, a personal blog focusing on technology run by a college student named Patrick Sobolewski. I encourage you to read my article and check out the other articles Patrick posts about! I hope you like it!

News! Tangled TV Show

Tangled-Poster-disney-18638629-1012-1500There is going to be a new Disney Channel Original Series based on the Tangled movie!

Personally, I would have liked another movie, but you have to work with what you got. Let’s face it, even without seeing the tv show I know that it will not be as good as the movie and it will not have all the elements that made the movie a big hit, but it has the potential to be something halfway decent (maybe).

I have mixed thoughts on this new project of Disney. As most of us know, Disney has made plenty of TV spin-offs from their big box office movies, but  not all of them can be considered a critical sucess. My biggest fear is the way that the show will be animated and my biggest comfort is that much of the original talent will be returning to take part in the show.

News! Candymakers Sequel

f8f1bce8ed4827b6046471e14a59567cThere’s going to be a Candymakers 2 book! Yay!

You probably can’t guess how excited I was when I found out this little morsel of information on Wendy Mass’ (the author) website. I absolutely adored the first book with all the compelling characters. When I finished the first books a part of me was reluctant to leave the characters behind because I just wanted to know more about them, but another part of me was satisfied with the ending knowing that their story was just beginning but it didn’t demand a sequel (but we all wouldn’t mind one). As a reader, books with endings like that are my favorite because it’s a perfect balance between wanting to spend more time with the characters and feeling as if the story is complete and over.

News! Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard

The_Sword_of_SummerThis isn’t really a review because the book hasn’t come out, but I wanted to say a few words on what I think of the future book series. I was in Barnes and Noble the other day and as I was looking at some books I saw little book samples for Rick Riordan’s new book Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard: The Summer Sword. I have previously read Rick Riordan’s other mythological stories (as has much of the younger population) such as Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Kane Chronicles, and most of the Heroes of Olympus series. My favorite is no doubt the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, most likely due to the fact that I read them first and they introduced me to the wonderful, colorful writing of Rick Riordan.

(Possible) News on Disney’s Descendants Book Sequel

Disneys-Descendants

I was skimming the news section for Disney’s Descendants and I saw that someone had posted an article about a possible sequel to Isle of the Lost: A Disney Descendants Novel by Melissa de la Cruz. This was originally posted on the blog A Stitch Kingdom, who calls themselves: “The number one unofficial site for news on The Walt Disney Company.” Since they are unofficial, the news that they deliver is questionable, but according to them during Bookcon Melissa de la Cruz announed that she is working on a sequel titled Return to the Isle of the Lost.

Hello world! I’m under construction!

I’ve just started this website, so there isn’t much on it (as you can see). The point of this website is that it’s for me to share my thoughts on current media. I will mostly be posting reviews on books and movies, but I will occasionally post on other topics related to media!

Sorry for all the clutter as I get this website up and running! And I hope you check back with me soon!
