Well I guess it’s finally time to end my self-imposed exile from the internet, and what better way to do so than with a head first dive back into something that is near and dear to my non-beating heart. I am almost positive that you all know of my love for Borderlands, and just a few days ago, we got the latest installment in the psycho murdering, bandit decapitating and loot gathering franchise that has captured me beyond what most games do. There’s just something about it.
I intended to do a straight up review of said game, however, I felt like it would be a dishonorable move considering how my previous Borderlands article went, and figured since you guys liked that one so much, I would stick to the same formula. This will be a review, but it will also be a look into our newest set of Vault Hunters…..or shall we now call them Jack’s Hunters? No…..because it’s so much more than that.
Hey There Fellow Geeks!
So if you’ve followed some of my articles or our podcasts, you’ve probably realized that I kinda dig the concept of “The Alt”…What’s an Alt? It’s an alternate timeline, maybe the future or the past, it’s a parallel world that vibrates at a different frequency than our own, it’s a place where almost everything seems “right,” but there is that one thing that stands out and makes you go “What the Alt!” So in this new series I plan to explore various Alternate Worlds, Realities, and Futures and clue you in to some really cool ideas and concepts out there in the geek world. Does this sound appealing? Good, then keep on reading! Read the rest of this entry
You know what’s missing from Marvel comics these days? It’s not just the feeling of permanence in the storytelling or the overall quality in the product they put out on a monthly basis. The notion that the creators are putting their best feet forward and not just taking monthly work to pay the bills while they publish their best stories as creator-owned works? Sure, that’s gone with the wind but there’s something else that used to be a staple of the industry, but seems to be gone for good.

Hey True Believers!
First off, I’m sorry it’s been some time… but this past week has been one of catch up, so I’m gonna catch you up on two weeks of everyones favorite agents with the episodes titled “Making Friends and Influencing People” and “Face My Enemy.” These two episodes have been really cool because we’ve really gotten to see the spy game happening between S.H.I.E.L.D. and HYDRA that wasn’t (in my opinion) as apparent in the first season as our team was really a group of peace-keeper who have in many ways had their status changed to outlaws.

Hello geeks! I recently decided to take a stroll down memory lane, aka Youtube, in search of my favorite 90’s Nickelodeon shows. Given that it’s October, and tis the season to be spooky, I took a chance and searched for one of my favorite shows from my childhood, Are You Afraid of the Dark?, and found that most of the series is available to watch through Youtube.
It’s TARDIS time, Evil Geeks! This week finds the Doctor as a prisoner in his own home; thanks to a steadily decreasing in size TARDIS door. Either someone left the TARDIS in the dryer a little too long or something is siphoning off the physical dimensions of the advanced craft causing it to shrink. Clara manages to get out while the blue box is kiddie sized, but the Doctor ends up trapped when it goes down to about 1 foot tall. At the same time all this spatial wackiness is going on, in the town where the TARDIS has landed, people are disappearing only to have an image of themselves pop up on a mural at a memorial for the missing. Could this be related to the TARDIS shrinking? It’s up to Clara, armed with the Doctor’s sonic and psychic paper to figure out what is causing the anomalies.
