An Open Letter to Carrie Fisher

Image Credit Like most Star Wars fans, and particularly other female Star Wars fans, I was fond of Princess Leia. I really first discovered Star Wars in third grade and it was nice to actually have a woman role model in fantasy/sci-fi.

As I got older and still loved and rewatched¬†Star Wars, I realized just…

DC Unveils Aquaman and We’re OK With It

ZackSnyder drops a hydrogen bomb in the form of Jason Momoa as Aquaman, and we’re pleasantly surprised. Aquaman is typically treated as the butt of the joke of DC superheroes. No, no, you know what? I’d go as far as to say he’s the butt of the joke of all superheroes. Are there worse superheroes? Absolutely, no doubt. But unfortunately none are as famous as Aquaman. What is his magical power? He can control fish? Whatever. (Image Source) Oh…shit. This isn’t some plastic blonde hair…

Thorgi and BaneCat

Thorgi and BaneCat Figurines [Video]

{{unknown}}I’m not really into collectables, but Eric Ho’s BaneCat and Thorgi Internet sensation memes might just start something. Let’s be honest, who doesn’t need one of these little 3D printed guys sitting on your desk? Giving you the eye; guilting you into getting whatever it is you need to do get done. “You complain that it’s dark? I was born in darkness. I thrive in darkness. I am better than you.” Don’t let BaneCat talk that way! Buckle down and finish what you’re working on!…

It Sounds So Obvious When The Doctor Says It

Doctor Who was back with a Christmas special which actually was pretty rockin’. There were even a few fantastic lines from it, one in particular really stood out: Speaking of which, if you haven’t seen Alien or Aliens, I highly recommend you do. If you love horror movies, it’s a walk in the park. If you despise horror movies like me, you’ll still get through it just fine. Not only will you recognize Sigourney Weaver, but you’ll also see a young Ian Holm (Bilbo Baggins),…

This holiday season you surround yourself with those you love (or thought you did) and realize things about people that make or break your relationships. I’ve been a Whovian for years. When you’re a Whovian, you can’t help but share you’re fanaticism. I try to do so tastefully and like to think I’ve succeeded in that. The other day my friend called and was like, “Oh, by the way, I know you’re really into sci-fi and stuff, so I thought I’d tell you I started…
