Patrick Hickey Jr.- Founder, Editor-In-Chief

I am the Founder, Editor-in-Chief, Master Jedi and Grand Pooh-bah of Despite being an avid and prolific journalist over the past seven years, I find myself wanting more. During my career, I’ve spent time covering everything from minor league hockey and baseball to the New York Mets and the NHL and interviewing everyone from David Wright to Martin Brodeur. I’ve been published in over two dozen newspapers, magazines and websites and have won several awards along the way. In addition to teaching Journalism and English full-time at Kingsborough Community College in Brooklyn, I am also a former News Editor at NBC Local Integrated Media and NAtional Video Games Writer at the late I’m still hungry, though.

While sports writing has been a blast and still provides a tremendous rush for me, I felt a need to return to entertainment writing, an endeavor I supremely enjoyed while I was the EIC of two college newspapers. As a matter of fact, some of the greatest times in my journalistic career were those late nights in the editing and layout rooms, working with people and discussing pop culture. Sometimes, those would be the reasons why I enjoyed myself so much, aside from looking at our finished product at the end of the night.

After college, I continued writing and began teaching Journalism and felt that again, while sports writing will always be the Jennifer Love-Hewitt of my heart, I realized that I am a slave to this craft and need an Alyssa Milano of sorts. That, to me, at least, is entertainment writing. At this site, my staff -which I have gathered from my exploits as a professor and journalist- and I will be dedicated to bringing you the most up to date reviews in the entertainment world as well as reviews of older material you may not have seen, which eventually will create a one of a kind experience you’ll feel the need to see every single day, before we eventually own your soul.

Don’t fight it, my friends, embrace it.

You can reach me at if you have any questions or concerns. It is our goal to make this the most innovative and fun atmosphere we can. Help us make that happen.

valente2Nick Valente- Television Editor

I’m a just Television and Radio guy from Brooklyn, planning an inevitable takeover of the world. However, I am still looking for a dumb mouse, preferably named Pinky, to accompany me. At the site, I’m a movie, television and graphic novel kind of guy and that’s what I’ll be writing for the most part.

Expect some book and music reviews as well though [insert demon horns here]. I grew up in Bensonhurst Brooklyn, the same neighborhood many of the best mafia films of our day were based on, idolizing guys like Robert DeNiro,  Martin Scorsese and Al Pacino. I’m also a big sports fan and follow the New York Yankees intensely.
