Most people know what the Minotaur is: giant half-man half-bull creature, lived in a labyrinth, was eventually killed by Theseus. That’s not the story I want to talk about today, however. No, I want to talk about how the Minotaur came to be in the first place.

Mythology Monday: The Fortification of Asgard

I like mythology and folklore. I think they’re extremely interesting. So, in that regard, I have decided to embark on a new project: Mythology Mondays. Basically, either every or every other Monday I will make a post about a story or mythological figure that I hope folks will find interesting, or at least entertaining.

(Note: I am fully aware that this is going on the blog proper on a Tuesday, but I’m putting it up on the Patreon on a Monday, so I’m counting it).

Star Trek: Discovery Recaps-“Magic To Make The Sanest Man Go Mad”

(Hello, folks! I have an announcement really quick before getting into the post proper: I am planning a Twitch channel; however, before I would be able to do so I would need a new laptop. Therefore, I have placed a goal on my Ko-Fi page to eventually purchase a more powerful computer. I also have a Patreon and PayPal as well. Reminder: If you’re a Patreon backer, you get to see posts 1 day early! Thank you, and on to the post.)
