The Final Countdown To 2018

I felt like letting Xadara leave 2017 in style. After the rather low point I feel the site hit in December, why not end it on a high note right? To that end, I felt the best way to go about this would be with the 1986 hit song, “The Final Countdown” by the band …

Closing Out 2017

Well, here we are, the end of 2017. I think most people would agree one way or another it was a hell of a year – 2016 was rough, but 2017 really took the cake for most everyone, me included. In some ways, the year here on my website was equally rough. It marked the …

Well, here we are. It’s the year 2017. Damn… that sounds futuristic as hell doesn’t it? Of course, I’ll be saying that about every forever, so it is what it is – 1984 sounded like the future way back when, after all, so it’s all relative. In any case, another year is upon us, and …

2017 Plans: An Update

2016 was a hell of a year. It had its good points, its bad points, and all in all, it was pretty much just like any other given year. The biggest element was about halfway through the year a focus change in my efforts from YouTube to this site proper. This was a change that …
