3PLT Crew Member Afrim Gjonbalaj kindly brings in his friend and Genius Brooklynite Patrick Hickey to talk about his book, his voice over work as the main character on the new video game "The Padre", his website and how horribly he treats the children in his family.

Patrick's website www.ReviewFix.com is your one stop for Video Game, TV, Movie, Music, Book and Graphic Novel reviews

And...Here's a little bit of Patrick's Bio:

 

 

Founder, Editor-in-Chief, Master Jedi and Grand Pooh-bah of ReviewFix.com. 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 Examiner.com. 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.
