MisSpelled, A Witchy Webseries
MisSpelled features a cast of 5 witches that have no clue what they’re doing! This lack of control tends to get them in pretty hot water. Can the girls save themselves and their families from the dark forces out to get them? They don’t know, but they can Google it.
Geeks and Science on Your Fingers: Incidental Twin Nail Polish
Sami Holloway’s label, Incidental Twin, creates fandom-inspired nail colors like “Loki Stole My Feels”, “I’ll Be in My Bunk,” and “Not A Psychopath”. However, my personal favorites are Sami’s science inspired polishes, including colors such as “Marie Curie”, “Tesla”, and “Horse Head Nebula”.
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 ..
The Walking Dead: Strangers
Every time I see a new black character on The Walking Dead, I immediately start speculating on which current black character is going to die.
The heaviness associated with last week’s episode certainly stayed with us as we witnessed the aftershocks of Sara’s demise. For an episode titled after her, we certainly see very little of her, or do we? Her ghost was everywhere, affecting everyone and drifting throughout the show like mist rising from a stream, softening silhouettes and creating shadows in the relationships of the other characters.
Arrow: The Calm
In a world full of mediocrity and inconsistency, it’s nice to know there are some things a person can count on. My DVR apparently isn’t one of them. I anticipated this season’s premier with great delight. Unfortunately, I had errands to run on Wednesday evening but never fear, the trusty DVR was here! Right? When I came home and realized my ancient recording mechanism had failed to engage, contrary to its programmed instructions, I couldn’t keep myself from saying, “DVR, you have failed this Arrow fan!” So, for what was a tortuous 24 hours while I waited for CW to post the episode, I paced. And stress-ate.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Making Friends and Influencing People
Only three episodes in, season two of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has offered more intrigue, character development and suspense than all 22 episodes of season one. I hope that it continues on the same trajectory, although I will be very glad when Simmons and Fitz are reunited and someone either puts a bullet in Ward or they drop him into a deep dark hole. But then, what would be the fun in that?
Badland Girls: Strip and Fall
This week, Rhea and Destiny get hype about the fact that Halloween is coming and talk about some of their spoopy/creppy October plans. We also go into a discussion of the horror youtube series, Marble Hornets, so we suggest you check that out! There’s also quite a few non-scary tangents about stuff like middle school, anime, and Taylor Swift. By the way, if you have any scary stories, games, movies, etc. you’d like to share or recommend, we’d like that lots! So send an email or comment or something!
Apocalypse Closet: Spring 2015 RTW
The Fall 2014 Ready-to-Wear shows were an eclectic mess of WHAAAAAT? as designers shook out their anxieties and tried to settle on a new vision to bring humanity forward into the next half of the decade. For Spring 2015 Ready-to-Wear, they’ve settled on a collective vision. SO. MUCH. BOHO.
The Passion of The Exclusionary Geek
One night, we went to karaoke and met a woman with a Serenity tattoo and a Captain America t-shirt. I was also wearing a Captain America shirt, so naturally, we chest bumped (as you do when you meet another geek in the wild) and merged our groups for the rest of the night. At the end, we were invited to a charity costume ball being run by one of her friends. It was way the hell out in the suburbs, but hey! Geeks! Costumes! Tasty adult beverages! Of course we’d go! How could we not? These are our people! Right?
Sad Motivator WebSeries
Sad Motivator was a sad reminder that men lose their minds when it comes to sex and love.
Let’s Pour One Out for True Blood’s Awesome Pam
So long, Awesome Pam. You were the best thing about True Blood. I’m disappointed you never got the spin-off series you so richly deserved, but it’ll always be there in my dreams.
On Robin Williams
The HuffPo front page just had a black and white photo of Robin Williams with the headline Nanu Nanu. And I thought, “Oh, no. Oh, god. Please don’t let this be true.”
