"Water, Earth, Fire, Air. Long ago, the four nations lived together in harmony. Then everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked." Are you familiar with this iconic intro? If you are, then glad to have you back, co-bender! If not yet, then welcome to the Avatar: The Last Airbender (ATLA) universe.

And as a superfan of the series, here is everything that geeks me out about it.

The 72nd Miss Universe 2023 competition in El Salvador has just ended, and as an avid pageant fanatic, I need to vent. Miss Universe is a pageant I hold near and dear to my heart.

In the dim recesses of a cellar, amidst trembling shadows and stifled sobs, three priests—Mariano Gomez (portrayed by Dante Rivero), Jose Burgos (portrayed by Cedrick Juan), and Jacinto Zamora (portrayed by Enchong Dee)—stand as harbingers of a nation's anguish.

What hits the message of dystopia being realized in Parasite is the direct yet brilliantly tucked emphasis on the level of impact of climate change on society, especially on differing socio-economic classes: the crisis of the climate affects the rich and poor differently.

It’s a grand time to be alive when famous anime have simultaneously begun and ended. Attack on Titan finale, SpyxFamily Season 2 opening, Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2— you name it, you have it. With all the advent and denouement of these animes, it’s no surprise that people of all ages have been going onto streaming sites just to catch up on their favorite episodes. Yet, have you ever wondered why this type of media genre is still so famous, despite its existence 100 (yes, a hundred!) years ago?
