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 [...]
Huzzah! It’s good to be back.
About 2 weeks ago, we were hacked by some folks who used our database to send out spam. Then, Network Solutions took down our site and told us they were super sorry, but they couldn’t help. Then, two amazing women (Ali and Lauren, we bow to you) helped us [...]
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 [...]
You know how people from the 70s (like me) like to complain that people from the 90s never do anything? Well, Devin Curtis and Timothy Blakely, two teens from Oregon, are proving people like me wrong. Not only are they the creators of their own website (Get Geek – which we [...]
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.

From his first role in V (the original) to cult favorite Buffy, The [...]
Oh, summer. Proffitt is in the process of buying a house in one state while living in another, packing up, and taking mid-terms; Bex is doing things like meeting Neil Gaiman (again), working, and vacationing. Meanwhile, here sits our little website, sad and alone.
Don’t worry – we’ve got stories to tell. Well be back [...]
You know how you see something and you think, Oh man! I gotta tell people about this, but then you forget or put it off? Then, it’s been so long that you think, Well, they probably know about it by now anyway, so why bother? And then, you’re like, No, wait. I have something to [...]
It might be hard for those of you not from the 70s to understand how deeply satisfying I find Chris Hardwick’s steady rise to nerd-world-domination, but before I explain, let’s take a moment to discuss the likelihood that you know who he is.
There are probably two kinds of people reading this: 1) people who [...]
Typically, when I love something, I consume it often: coffee, songs, movie theater popcorn, even some rare and special books worth investing another 10 hours in. And movies. Man, do I love re-watching movies. If I stumble upon Jaws, Bridesmaids, Serenity or Shaun of the Dead while flipping through channels (or, let’s be honest, scrolling [...]
