Patrick Gough

Patrick Gough overthinks comic books, “alternative” comedy, guitar music, movies starring Iko Uwais, and TV shows where white men get away with being horrible people because they are smarter than everyone else. He also studies philosophy, which is impossible to overthink, at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada. He secretly believes, in his heart of hearts, that the things he loves are intrinsically better than the things you love. He has a rarely-updated tumblr and plays bass in Empty Shelves, an Ottawa band that writes pretty songs. Please feel free to get in touch and hire him to write a twelve-volume critical analysis of the film Alien.
