Setting on the Road to the 2016 Hugo Awards

As with almost everything genre-related in my life, the reason I became interested this year in reading as many Hugo Award-eligible works as I can before March 28 this year is all thanks to my former college professor Dr. Atara Stein (may you rest in peace). As a young undergrad at Cal State Fullerton, I […]

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 […]

Trisha’s Take: How Hollywood may still be “doing it wrong” in the world of web entertainment

When it comes to being a writer or actor, we currently live in interesting times—and by “interesting” I’m using the “Chinese curse” definition of the word. Computers and the Internet have not only opened up a new distribution method for people to see their work and give them money for it, but also a way […]

Jammin’ With Jillers: Gerald Schoenfeld said it…

… I just didn’t want to believe it. People who know me know that I am a huge Theater Geek: my mother used to sing “Oh What a Beautiful Morning” to wake me and my brother up in the morning, back when we were in grade school, and my father actually works on Broadway (as […]

Git Off My Lawn: Cinematic Comic Capers

Back in my day, which was before Al Gore invented the internet, and possibly before Al Gore’s mommy invented Al Gore, comic books were fun-filled, light-hearted, simple creatures, with the titular hero fighting the Villain of the Month in brightly drawn panels and onomatopoeic sound effects and…  …uh, moving on. It seems like every comic […]

Jammin' with Jill: Where Roger Ebert went wrong
