I’ve done it folks. It’s been a wild ride but my mission is complete and now you viewers are going to get another taste of Lilith’s delicious opinion about Battlestar Galactica. A little while ago I set out on a mission for all my faithful followers (and in a competition with Biff) to bring them my take on each season of this show that had been recommended to me time and time again, and now this mission comes to its conclusion. It was a darker science fiction series than I was used to, watching important individuals and entire species be at their lowest low and their highest high was tough on my heartstrings, but it was worth the ride. So spoiler alert, be forewarned, I am going to give you my stunning conclusion to this series now.
Hello my zombified supporters. I have got a tasty treat for you today! I will admit, I read and watch a lot of trashy material out there in the name of geekdom, and this book might be classified in to that genre by some, but The Vegan Revolution…With Zombies by David Agranoff was something I couldn’t resist sinking my teeth in to. I’m sure my comments here and there have gotten you all up to speed that Lilith here is a vegan. So the inner vegan and zombie-loving parts of my soul united and were thrilled to indulge in this short novel. Warning: minor spoilers to follow, though they probably won’t stop you from enjoying this book in the future. Read the rest of this entry
I never thought that I would ever write a piece on fashion, considering how I basically wear the same goddamn thing every day (a cloak and the hide of a dragon) yet here we are, doing a piece on fashion. However, this isn’t going to be on what I stumble into after I morph out of bed in the morning. Very recently we were all introduced to our new Doctor, Peter Capaldi, but only in the last day or two were we finally shown what his official outfit is going to be, which is something huge in the Doctor Who world. His outfit is almost as important as the TARDIS herself, and fans have been waiting patiently for it to be announced. And now…….we have it.
I’m fascinated by Nick Fury. I love the idea of the grizzled war veteran super spy. Alas, things have certainly changed in Marvel’s landscape….don’t even get me started on Nick Fury Jr. Trying to find something I could sink my teeth into I came across the 2001/2002 miniseries Fury by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson. I have heard good things about Ennis’ Preacher series as well as his grim and ultra violent take on the Punisher through the Marvel Knights imprint and later Marvel’s Max line. The idea is that the Punisher’s age hasn’t been retconned to keep up with new young readers and Frank Castle is a warped Vietnam vet. The Fury miniseries generally takes a similar approach.
This week Professor Next rings the school bell on another brainy topic! We head for the stars as the discussion revolves around whether or not aliens exist and how the Star Wars influence has affected how we view these possibilities. Get out your thinking caps AND your invasion repelling gear as Professor Next and the Evil Geeks tackle the big questions.
Let me continue to reach out to all you poor, miserable inhabitants of the Northeast this weekend: sucks to be you, you could always come join me in sunny California for a break from the Polar Vortex. But that aside, let’s endure along our journey of winter creatures this month, today’s probably being one of the most infamous snow monsters, which is also one of it’s many other names. The yeti, the abominable snow monster, myths of this creature have been around since the 19th century.
