Two Books Enter: Lord of Scoundrels versus Your Scandalous Ways

One of my favorite blogs to dip into from time to time is Smart Bitches, Trashy Books. Originated by writers Candy Tan and Sarah Wendell, the blog seeks to showcase what’s good, fun, informative, sexy, and surprisingly intelligent about the romance novel industry through their irreverent and occasionally deep book reviews. Growing up, I loved […]

Trisha’s Take: The “Big Bang” problem

The beginning of this blog post and this review has been very difficult for me to write, so I’m just going to come out and say it: I think that Wil Wheaton is wrong about “The Big Bang Theory,” aka TBBT. As people who admire Wil Wheaton’s work know, he’s had several very fun guest […]

Trisha’s Take: When feminism and male webcomics artists collide

When it comes to reading webcomics, I have a set list of nine “dailies” I read and a few that I read which update less frequently. And while I’ve definitely settled on these few, that doesn’t mean that I haven’t read other webcomics or aren’t familiar with their work. Also, my love of comics and […]

Geekly Speaking About… “The Resonance of Commander Shepard”

Thanks to a confluence of events, I finally finished playing the original Mass Effect as both a male and female Commander Shepard in July… which means it’s podcast time!

Trisha’s Take: How to apologize on the Internet

I know it’s been a while since I’ve written in this blog, and quite a lot has happened since the last time I was able to work on it. A few more responsibilities were added to my day job and while having the increased responsibility is awesome because it means my new employers trust me, […]

Kara’s Fan Rage of the Day: Sherlock vs. Sherlock

I love me some Sherlock Holmes.  In any form.  I love Basil Rathbone and Jeremy Brett’s classic takes on the stories.  I love Robert Downey, Jr.’s Victorian action man and Benedict Cumberbatch’s high-functioning sociopath.  Hell, I’ll even watch that one with the dinosaurs now that Netflix is streaming it.  I love the fact that one […]

The Envelope Please…: Lyssa’s Thoughts on the Oscar Nominations

Yesterday morning, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced their annual nominees for the best in movies over the past year. Having seen the majority of the films nominated in the major categories, and, as anyone knows me would expect, I have a lot to say. This year’s surprises weren’t about what was nominated, […]

Trisha’s Take: Using the Force as a force of good

When Carrie Goldman wrote about her daughter Katie who was teased when she brought her Star Wars-themed water bottle to school because “Star Wars is for boys, and not girls,” and the Internet and cast and crew members from “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” proved that was most definitely not the case, I kept a […]
