Comics Cosmos – Luke Cage

ccWith the Luke Cage series hitting Netflix this weekend, it seems an appropriate time to give a little background on the character. Almost a year ago, right around the time Jessica Jones premiered, Kylan gave us a pretty extensive history of Luke Cage (and why he loves the character). So if you really want to delve into that history, you should go read that blog post (it’s right here). But today we’re doing the “quick and dirty” version. Continue reading

Miss Dawn’ Musings – Appreciating the Greats

Blog-MDMA few months back (ok, it was way back in February), I wrote about delving into the history of favorite characters by reading their early stories. It’s a great way to indulge your fandom. Well I got a chance to indulge in that history in another way over the weekend at a convention. Continue reading

Best Geeky Finds – AI Gone Right: A Look Back at The Love Bug

Blog-BGFHe was a small little thing, but he had a lot of heart. His name was Herbie the Love Bug.

In 1968, Disney continued its run of live-action family films about sports with The Love Bug (G), starting a new series that is still known today with its many sequels. At this time, however, there was only one Bug—a Volkswagen who was conveniently anything but one. Continue reading

Irregular’s Intel – The Bell Biv DeVoe Theorem: A Scholarly Treatise

Blog-IILast weekend, while enjoying breakfast with friends, the subject of whether or not one should trust a big butt and a smile came up, which resulted in quite a discussion. Some had a problem with the term “never,” which is a sure fire way to end up on the wrong side of a logical fallacy, while others questioned whether it was in the coupling of the big butt and smile or, if one happens after the other, is this then negated. It then dawned upon me… perhaps this is the perfect opportunity to approach this paradigm from a different angle? We live in an enlightened age… perhaps there is an inherent error in the Bell Biv DeVoe Theorem? Continue reading

Best Geeky Finds – Who’s Johnny?!

Blog-BGFOne evening as a kid, during a free-movie-channel weekend, my father was flipping through channels and suddenly stopped on one movie. The film had just begun, showing a small robot running through the streets and a department store. I was unfamiliar with what I was watching, but my dad was excited, grabbing a blank VHS tape and immediately recording the movie. From that night on, alongside Howard the Duck, Short Circuit 2 (1988, PG) (known to me as Robot Johnny 5, as I had never seen the opening title) was a constant at my house. Continue reading

Irregular’s Intel – Back to One

Blog-IIRecently, after a sickeningly long hiatus, I returned to the gym. I did not leave the gym by any conscious effort, but I did let life get in the way of my health. I had started a new job and the sudden change in schedule threw me for a loop. Now, I’m not making excuses, just stating that there were mitigating factors involved. At any rate, I returned and, although I knew that I had slipped some, I did not know how much until I tried a familiar circuit that I used to breeze through… not any more!! Sweet Christmas!! It kicked the living Fiddle Faddle out of me!! I had gotten the message in the middle of the gym… special delivery… I had to go all the way back to step #1. Continue reading

The Gamer Geek Blog – Empty Pockets

GGBHey geeksters!

So the past few days have not gone well for my future wallet. It’s bad enough I started the year out saying that I’d only spend $200 on games. Then companies started to announce stuff and I got a few ideas for some videos down the line for my channel… and now I’m here, post-E3, post-Pax and post-TGS8 (Tokyo Game Show), seeing at least two things I want to buy from every show! Continue reading

Comics Cosmos – Cloak and Dagger

ccEarlier this year, Cloak and Dagger received a full season order and is expected to air sometime in 2017 on Freeform. Of course, knowing what that network is all about, it should come as no surprise that the main characters are teenagers. But if they do things right, it could turn out to be an interesting show.
