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 the chubby girl, I never actually got to play Princess Leia, that was decidedly for the skinnier friend of the group to play, but I appreciated Leia’s presence nonetheless. 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]

Thorgi and BaneCat

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.

Ginger BaneCat

“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!

Then again, they may just be distracting.

Thorgi

“Why does thou mortal not just urinate on what thou wants? Claim it and it will be yours!”

Calm down, Thorgi, it doesn’t quite work that way.

What? Inanimate objects can speak to you all the time, it just depends on your imagination…or how intoxicated you are. See the following video for more details.

Whichever way these adorable 3D figurines might tempt you, it has to be said, these are too cute not to share. But if you know someone whose life would benefit from a 3D printed collectables, you can find Thorgi for $25.00 and BaneCat (as well as other fantastic meme cats) for $19.99 at Eric Ho’s product pages.

I’m pretty certain I need dis.

Heavily Breathing Cat

*Breaths Heavily*

Thanks to Nerd Approved for introducing us to BaneCat and Thorgi!

My Friend Was Telling Me About a Show He Found

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…

10 Things That Happen When You Marathon 3 Seasons of Big Bang Theory in 3 Days

Binge-watching. Is there any activity better known by Millenials? When we aren’t busy working those obnoxious service jobs or updating Facebook, browsing the latest addition on Netflix is likely your next stop (as a fellow Millenial, this observation is made without judgement). And what’s wrong with that? Well, in this weather: absolutely nothing. But sometimes, coming off a three day binge can be the hardest part. ¬†You find yourself waiting for the wheezing groan of the TARDIS in the garden outside. You imagine intricate deductions…
