The Dangerous Game of Sponsorships


This topic has been eating away at me for many weeks now after I've received a series of questions from those on both sides of it. I feel really trapped in-between good people on all sides, with some attacking others through me.
Here are some articles you should read if you post anything onto social media when working with a company:

Ready Player One


Some really incredible ideas in this film that could one day become reality. Overall, it was good, absolutely loaded to the gills with easter eggs in every sense of the world. Decent story and CGI, if you grew up in the 80's and 90's and enjoyed video games at any point in your life, you will love seeing it in theaters.
