It’s over 20-years since the Torrance family ended their fateful stay in the Overlook Hotel, and the youngest member of the tribe, Dan (formerly known as Danny to most, and Doc to those who mattered most), is still carrying the demons left behind. I suppose I might be speaking metaphorically. Then again, this is the [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
Since my birth in 1974 there have been no fewer than 62 predictions of apocalyptic doom to gain at least some public attention, either because there seemed to be reasonable science behind the prediction, or because the leaders and followers of various groups engaged in strange, sometimes tragic behavior in response to their belief the [...]
2012 has been a year of highest highs and lowest lows (or rather one lowest low that deserves mention). I found this suggestion somewhere I can’t remember: decorate a jar for 2013 and every great thing that happens, write it on a slip of paper and put it in the jar. At the end of [...]
Long before we were Bex and Proffitt, we were just Becky and Rachel. We had wild, cascading hair and complexions so pale you could practically (literally) trace our veins. In high school we both carried 15 extra pounds, and we both lost them around the same time in our college tenure, despite being miles apart. [...]
While growing up, I was frequently staying up late and watching scary movies on the local channels and PBS. Those old movies helped feed my love for the geekier side of the entertainment spectrum. I am making it my mission to dig up scary films from the past and share them with you. Are they [...]
Debuting in Feburary of 2010, the Nerdist podcast has had a tremendous rise in both the geek and comedy podcast worlds, being named one of Rolling Stone magazine’s top 10 comedy podcasts after having been on the air for just over a year.
Having recently moved to Atlanta, I [...]
Lost has come to its expected end. I had watched the last 20 minutes of the series finale when it ended just to be spiteful. It didn’t make much sense to me at the time, but the more I watched the show, I started to have some understanding of how the survivors’ destinies would unfold.
Spoilers for – Doctor Who, Angel, Buffy, and Game of Thrones (the first book/first season of HBO show)
