Christmas will be soon upon us and I’m sure we will be sharing another gift idea extravaganza with you in the coming weeks. Until then, here are some fun odds and ends.
Greeting Card fun- Colette Paperie speaks the truth you should be ballsy enough to share. I stumbled upon Colette’s [...]
At long last a review. Some of you must have been patiently thinking “What is with those girls? They haven’t mentioned their favorite all around nice guy author’s book and it’s been almost half a year?” Well, Bex finally got to it.
I felt like I was cheating on Neil Gaiman, writer of my most [...]
Not into spy novels or romances? Looking for a brief literary affair that won’t take over your life? I have a few good suggestions for stories to escape into while sipping hot tea or cocoa by the fire (or if lacking a fireplace like me, by your pumpkin pie scented candle). Or if you are [...]
I will go to my grave firmly believing the Firefly theme song (not just Fox’s refusal to show the episodes in order) is mostly to blame for the show’s low ratings. I am certain many folks who were unfamiliar with Whedon wanted to give a space western a try, but were immediately turned off by the [...]
Family Tree- If you are a fan of the oft improvised Christopher Guest films (A Mighty Wind, Waiting for Guffman,and my favorite, Best in Show) or just love Irish everyman Christopher O’Dowd, you must see this new HBO series.

I’ve been busy watching some great entertainment and decorating (man it’s tiring matching patterns and colors and trying to pick out a desk). I apologize for neglecting y’all. But here are some recommendations to keep you entertained while waiting for Proffitt’s next post!
In the Flesh. See
A few weeks have passed since BBC America aired the three part zombie- centric series In the Flesh, written by Dominic Mitchell and directed by Jonny Campbell (who has a few Doctor Who and Shameless episodes under his belt amongst others). I am unable to find any IMDB credits for Mitchell; if this [...]
When one thinks of the word “fandom” they often just think of sci-fi and fantasy oriented shows. Fandoms means lovers of Buffy, Doctor Who, The Walking Dead. You know, all those shows that have conventions based around them. But anyone can geek out over anything and my recent trip to Wilmington, NC proved just that.
Most of you are probably fans of the 2009 Ruben Fleischer directed film Zombieland. The charmingly hilarious take on the zombie genre stars Woody Harrelson (Tallahassee), Emma Stone (Wichita), Jesse Eisenberg (Columbus), and Abigail Breslin (Little Rock) as survivors of a mad cow disease derived zombie virus. If you’ve done your nerd due diligence, you [...]
