Some mid-week updates! Gearing up for NaNoWriMo, so I’m expecting November to be a wild ride! Please enjoy!
- Fantastic Halloween costume!
- Star Wars blooper reel. Never seen this one before.
- Video of the surface of Mars. Quite cool.
- Days of Future Past trailer! So excited!!!! And here’s an article that dissects the trailer screenshot by screenshot.
- Sorkinisms – a Supercut. Fantastic video. I hadn’t realized how repetitive he is before this!
- I’ve been getting caught up on Speakeasy with Paul F. Tompkins (on MadeManDotCom’s YouTube channel). This week’s episode features Katee Sackhoff!
- And finally, a new episode of All-Star Celebrity Bowling. Team Fallon (Jimmy Fallon, AD Miles, Steve Higgins and Questlove) vs. Team Nerdist (Seth Herzog, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Jonathan Coulton and Chris Hardwick). I love these shows! If you haven’t seen the episode where they bowl against the Walking Dead cast, the Breaking Bad cast or against the Cornetto Trilogy cast, those are definitely worth seeing as well.
Have a happy (and safe) Halloween!Read More
It’s been a fairly slow week this past week in terms of interesting Geek News, but I was able to find a few interesting tidbits.
- Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean talking about The Sandman? Yep!
- Neil Gaiman giving a talk about why reading is important. (Yes, I know there’s a lot of Gaiman love going on here.)
- Martin Freeman is adorable. See if you don’t agree with me after you look at these.
- Couples switching outfits. I love stuff like this.
- Captain America Winter Soldier Trailer! I am excited about this!
- You’ve seen Ylvis’ song What Does The Fox Say?, right? It’s quite the earworm.
- Now see what the wonderful folks on Sesame Street did with it. And then did again.
I hope you enjoy these!Read More
Goodness how the time has flown! Real life has kept me away from the site but I’m back with some fun things for you to check out on the Internet!
- Terry Pratchett has the best sense of humor.
- Self assembling robots? It’s neat… and kind of scary to think about.

- I am excited about the documentary called I Know That Voice!
- Check out the most extensive LEGO/Lord of the Rings creation ever. Someone has too much time on their hands.
- A recap of The Walking Dead, told by Ketchup with the Hot Dogs.
- Have you heard about the new comic based on Firefly?
- Check out this fantastic short set in the world of Bioshock Infinite, featuring Chris Hardwick and Chloe Dykstra!
- I love Tom Hiddleston. No, seriously.
- I’d always heard that Stephen King didn’t like Stanley Kubrick’s movie of his book The Shining. Here’s a good article explaining why clearly.
- Neil Gaiman on why reading, libraries and imagination are critical for our future.
- Flying cars? Really?
- Check out this Venom cosplay!
- The most amazing Swiss army knife ever made.
- What you’ve missed by not playing Portal and Portal 2.
- Finally, I know you’ve always wanted to Rick Roll someone. In Klingon.
I’ve got several more posts in the pipe for the upcoming week. There have been two Tabletop episodes (Shadows Over Camelot and Betrayal at House on the Hill) since I last posted. Also, I saw Wil Wheaton vs. Paul & Storm in Northern VA a couple of weeks ago. More on all of that soon!Read More
Hello all -
Here’s tidbits from the Internet that I’ve gathered over the last week. I hope you enjoy them.
- A great history of the character of Riddick. I have to admit, I wasn’t aware of the Shockwave comic or the Flash game, had forgotten about the Xbox and Xbox360 games and probably knew but ignored the novels. I still think Into Pitch Black is one of the scariest things I’ve ever seen.
- Bowling with the cast from the Cornetto Trilogy? Heck yes!
- The trailer for the next Avengers film (was shown at ComicCon) was finally released. Enjoy.
- Are you in the mood to smile? Jimmy Fallon & The Roots sing the theme from Sesame Street with the muppets.
- More smiling. Jimmy Fallon, Justin Timberlake and #hashtags.
- Amazing schwarma chef.
- Robert Downey, Jr. is awesome. And has awesome toys.
- Constantine (Hellblazer) on NBC? It could be good… or horrific like that Keanu Reeves movie.
- An abandoned Wizard of Oz theme park? Oh, if I’d only had advance notice…
- This is what a Wonder Woman movie should look like.
- The new trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.
I’ll be back Thursday with a link to the new episode of Tabletop!Read More
