Hey trekies, Lilith here again, trying to catch up on all the Star Trek genre material out there. I know it’s been a while since I wrote about the show. When I last wrote about all things Trek it was a review of Season 2, and all the amazing buzzfeed style moments I loved from it. Well, truth be told, I did not completely finish season 3 but I am writing about it. Yup, I confess, as hard as it is for me to admit, I could not stomach the entire season. I found that episode after episode I was spending increasing time on my iphone being so bored with the show, and so about 2/3 through the show I threw in my towel. I will still review the episodes and moments I appreciated of what I did watch, and my next Star Trek related battle has me delving in to the movies. All 6 of those glorious pre-lens flare, screaming Kirk movies. So stay tuned, and I hope you enjoy today’s albeit abbreviated post.
Did you see the film Walk the Line but walk away thinking that it wasn’t quite preachy enough? Well, this week your prayers will be answered by this little gem:
I got my first real computer in 1995 and it was a big day in my life. No longer would I have to use a shitty second hand one that only operated through DOS, this new one had Microsoft Windows. I was 11 years old and couldn’t wait to explore the wonders of dial up internet. One of the first things I remember doing was saving a 3 1/2 inch floppy disk full of original Transformers G1 box art. Retrospectively, it was a pretty odd thing to do. You might say it was that day that the Biff you’re reading today was born.
I’ve always loved this particular art from a young age, perhaps because it was almost a more “realistic” version of the Transformers cartoon counterparts. In my mind this is the version of what these robots in disguise actually looked like. Legacy: The Art Of Transformers Packaging is a labor of love made by fans Bill Forester and Jim Sorenson who scoured the world for the most comprehensive box art they could scan. It seems that somewhere along the way IDW (who currently publishes Transformers and other Hasbro licensed properties) saw the merit behind this book and decided to publish it. The book itself is huge true hardcover coffee table book. The text is minimal, but that’s ok. It leaves more room for the main attraction, the art.
Hey there Evil Geeks! Today we’re featuring the first post from a new guest writer, The Fairy Wizard:
You might have heard about the new expansion pack for Guild Wars 2, Heart of Thorns, which was revealed at PAX a few days ago. You might have been there yourself, or (as is more likely) watched the event on twitch, listening to the ambient music with giddy anticipation. You might have been overwhelmed by the hype and even felt excited at the thought of new content in the game. Well, if you have, then please stop reading, because I’m about to take all that enthusiasm and burn it to the ground.

Hey there Evil Geeks, we’re still several months away from Avengers: Age of Ultron, but Marvel is already ramping up to the 2 part mega-crossover event Avengers: Infinity War. Those films are still years away, but if you’ve been paying close attention to the Marvel Cinematic U, you’ve noticed that there’s been someone looming ominously in the background the whole time. Who is this mystery power player, pulling the strings behind the scenes?
