The Geek and Gamer Girl Conundrum

I’ve spoken out several times about the growing rumblings about what is and is not a geek, especially when it comes to women within our culture. This notion of any attractive woman claiming geek culture as someone pandering to accomplish something is ridiculous. Does it happen? Yeah it does. Is it hurting anything? Maybe or … Continue reading

Are Geeks Taking Over?

After a word from our sponsors….

So, it’s been a bit since I’ve had a post. A long bit. Sometimes life likes to throw a bump in the road, a curve, or a live grenade. Needless to say I had a lot of personal family stuff going on and writing fell to the sidelines. However….. I’m back! Taking a few months … Continue reading

My take on the Deathly Hallows

It’s been a long time since I could say that a movie surpassed my expectations. I can most definitely say that Deathly Hallows part 2 created one of the best adaptations of a written book I have ever seen. I left the theater at 2:45 am totally satisfied. There was no lingering regrets or lamentation … Continue reading

The Voice Behind the Curtain: Comics and Political Discourse

With the Fourth of July right around the corner I thought we’d go a little political and partly patriotic for Friday’s post.
