The Man That Stops The Monsters

Peter Capaldi Makes The Doctor

Series 8 is officially wrapped and the fandom has chimed in: Peter Capaldi is the best Doctor of New Who. Maybe the best New Who is a little presumptuous. Depending on your source, the best New Who often times is given to David Tennant, and with good reason. All you have to do is watch Series 1-4 1/2 and you can see why. Russell T. Davies did an excellent job rebooting the series with Christopher Eccelston, but it can’t be denied that David Tennant brought…

Kevin Spacey Doing Impressions Will Never Not Be Funny

Kevin Spacey showed up on The Tonight Show and did some pretty spot on and hilarious impressions of Christopher Walken, Michael Caine, and Johnny Carson Kevin Spacey is kind of a big deal right now with his role as Frank Underwood in Netflix’s gripping political thriller House of Cards (not to be confused with the BBC’s original production of House of Cards which is actually incredibly dull and hard to get through seeing as I haven’t studied any part of the last 300 years of…

Daniel Radcliffe Subtly Cast an Expelliarmus Charm and Left Us All Stupified

Can we just talk about how amazing it is that Daniel Radcliffe rapped it out on Jimmy Fallon? In case you haven’t seen it, this is what we’re talking about: Relashio! I thought you might need to be pulled out of that spell Daniel Radcliffe just put you under. Radcliffe is one hundred percent known the world over as “Harry Potter.” I don’t think anyone has ever seen a picture of him and went “Hey! That’s Arthur Kipps!” so it was riddikulusly refreshing to see…

Mitosis

Open Your Ears To: Mitosis (for free!)

If you’ve read Brandson Sanderson’s first YA novel Steelheart, you’re going to love the novella Mistosis! I actually didn’t wait for the audio recording of Brandon Sanderson’s debut Young Adult novel Steelheart. I went for the hardback as soon as it was available. If you haven’t read Steelheart, you should, and definitely before listening to the free Audible.com recording of Mitosis, as the short story won’t make any sense without it’s predecessor. Steelheart fills the futuristic sci-fi, technologically advanced yet suffering-world void that The Hunger…
