It’s difficult to be gay. Even though attitudes have improved (Pink Dot, anyone?), there’s still a lot of social stigma attached to being gay in today’s world, especially in Asian societies.

Mar 22nd, 2018 Drama Marcus Goh 5 min read

F***! S**t! Pus**! That’s what everyone who has Tourette’s will shout, at the top of their lungs, right? Wrong.

You most definitely…

Feb 13th, 2018 Action, Adventure, Drama, Fantasy, Science Fiction, Superheroes Marcus Goh 10 min read

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is a literally colourful place. Virtually every colour has been used in their character codenames, which is no mean feat when you think about it. Unlike the DC Universe, which has the Green Lanterns (and Lanterns for every colour of the rainbow, we’re not kidding you here), the Marvel Universe doesn’t actually have a reason to have a superhero or supervillain…
