Kickstarting The Apocalypse with Diani & Devine
“We’re raising a lot of money. It’s more than I’ve ever made in a year doing anything, but it’s not a lot with which to make a movie. So, that’s going to be a challenge to get a feature film made on that budget and have it be what we want it to be. But, we’re going to be creative and work fast and dirty.”
Healthy & Delicious: Phantom Fuel Bars
“Phantom FUEL is my line of all-natural granola bars… They’re chewy and delicious, but packed with protein, iron, and fiber that will keep you feeling full a lot longer than you’d think…. There are plenty of fabulous ingredients ….and I use a few of the super-tasty ones to mask all of the super-healthy ones in Phantom FUEL. Everybody wants to eat healthier, but nobody wants to chomp down on something as tasteless as cardboard …And if you can get a bunch of protein and fiber and iron in something that tastes this good, wouldn’t you want to eat it every day??”
Free Pumpkin Carving Stencil: Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Logo
Yeah, it’s just a little bit early for free pumpkin carving templates. Sure, the S.H.I.E.L.D. emblem pretty much already looks ..
Indulging in Squid Salad: Interview with Annie Stoll
Anii Stoll: “I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t drawing. I guess I’ve always been drawing something since I was a little kid. When I got into high school, I got into Anime and that kind of thing, and then I was into comics. I liked it so much that I found out that I could actually go to college and do it as a career. That’s sort of why I became a graphic designer.”
Marketability and Brand Recognition; or, Why Is It A Good Time To Be A Geek Creator
This is the Golden Age of Fandom, with untold opportunities for your creative projects, thanks to two things that are weighing on the minds of every entertainment executive: Marketability and Brand Recognition. These are the two prime forces in every decision made in entertainment today and why fandom creators have a huge advantage in optimizing their properties growth.
Why a Little Show From The 60′s Has Captured The Imagination of All of Us: The Next 50 years of Doctor Who.
I can’t wait to see the Nth Doctor with my grandchild and re-discover that wide universe again through their eyes.
Once Upon A Time: Save Henry
I guess women don’t get to have ten+ seasons of story dedicated strictly to their own development. Because women get to be sex objects, then we get to be mothers, then we get to be invisible.
Badland Girls: Tofurkey Rolls
This week, Rhea and Destiny talk about video game consoles and the new Hunger Games movie (spoiler-free, obviously). We also respond to a couple of fan tweets and read some Netflix-themed erotica. HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Repairs
I don’t believe that May will ever revert to the girl she was, at least by Coulson’s description, but we do see a glimpse of hope at the end of the episode when it’s obvious she plays a prank on Fitz. It would be nice to see a little bit more fun from May, although it’s kind of fun to watch her kick butt every week as the show’s resident bad-ass.
Geek’s Guide to Dating (Book Review)
The Geek’s Guide is fun and amusing read, that still tries to impart helpful advice to those that read it, while pumping you full of geeky references. “Never Give up. Never Surrender.”
A Vegetable Garden on The Moon
Unlike my failed (and lame) science project, the point of the NASA/Google experiment isn’t about plants’ ability to thrive. It’s the first step in gauging human ability to thrive in a closed lunar habitat. If we send plants to the Moon and they thrive, then humans probably can, too.
The Return of the Doctor and (hopefully) His Love of Booze.
I wonder how this current audience is going to receive the new, 12th Doctor …This anticipation happens every time a new doctor is introduced to the series. Sure, I understand concerns about his age, his likeability, his connection to his future companion or companions but being this is called “Geeks on the Rocks”, I care about one thing: Can this Gallifreyan drink?
My 2013 Halloween Costume: Design
This Mothra costume has gotten way out of hand and I haven’t even started making it, yet.
My 2013 Halloween Costume: Origins
I haven’t dressed up much since college even though I’ve had great costume ideas. It’s always poor timing or weather. For example, last year, my Halloween costume was thwarted by Hurricane Sandy. I was going to be a Sexy Ood.
The Troubled Super-Heroine
As I’ve gotten older, though, I’ve become increasingly despondent at the lack of Batgirls…Why does there have to be a dichotomy of female and strong?…[Y]es, there are more examples of female superhero failure than success on the big screen…And still, I’ll argue that the superheroine should be allowed to fail, because through failure we can ultimately succeed.
