Attack of the Underwear Models (or Not Just Another Pretty Face)

I’ve always been a fan of science fiction, so when a new genre show comes on, I’ll always check it out. This comes partly from how there were very few sci-fi shows when I was growing up (at least not

Thank You, That Was Terrible (or A Celebration Of Mediocrity In Culture)

So, sometimes I like to look at or listen to things that aren’t that good. Let me explain. A lot of the mainstream releases that come to us are the product of a large team of professionals with many years

Six Better Choices for a Star Wars Movie Director Than J.J. Abrams (or Mission: Impossible – Lost on the Fringe)

  So when I heard that J.J. Abrams was directing the Star Wars reboot I was all…meh. Now don’t get me wrong. Abrams is a skilled filmmaker and storyteller from the Spielberg school who has worked hard to produce many

So, if you don’t know who Anne Wheaton and Bonnie Burton are, you might want to skip this post. Or better yet, go to vandaleyes.net or the #VandalEyes hashtag on Twitter and look at some of the pictures posted there.

Bras, Mixed Drinks, And Dead Celebrities (or Let’s Get The Party Started)

So, I’m tidying up and I come across this book, The Art of Mixing Drinks (Bantam Books) originally published in 1957. I forgot when and where I got it (for obvious reasons, probably) but I couldn’t help leafing through it

The Top Ten Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Read Top Ten Lists

It’s the end of the year (not the end of the world as a bored media would have you believe) and that means Christmas, New Years, and top ten lists. The latter is certainly one tradition we could all do

No Autographs Please (or Sign on the Bottom Line)

(Photo credit: Wikipedia) It has long been a staple of fandom: that scrawl of ink across a piece of paper that announces to the world that you met, er… what’s his name. You know, he was in that thing with

Geeks, Nerds And The Men Who Love Them (or Dealing With Nerd Shaming)

Every once in a while, within any given community, someone will do something incredibly stupid. And we will laugh at them and call them names. It makes us feel better, at least for a little while, until the next idiot

An Offer I Can’t Refuse (or Thanks For The Memory)

So, okay. I’ll admit it. I’ve never seen The Godfather. There, I said it. Don’t all unsubscribe at once. Neither have I seen Part Two (I hate coming in on the middle of a story) nor Part Three (although from

Have A Nice Day (or Did You Miss Me?)

Sometimes, when I’m waiting in line and the cashier is really nice to me, I wonder “Is she making fun of me? Do I have something on my face. Is my hair standing up straight like I just stuck my
