The Best of “Overheard at Dragon Con” 2016

Oh my goodness! Dragon Con is definitely the mecca of all nerd cons, for me. My Dragon Con 2016 was amazing. Incredibly busy but amazing. I had five panels with topics ranging from podcasting to Star Wars Counseling plus two live podcasts. The first, Booze and Phasers, was the show’s first recording outside our living rooms and ended with hilarity and public intoxication at one in the afternoon – but this is Dragon Con, remember, so there is no time keeper! The second podcast, 5 Truths and a Lie, was standing room only with over 700 guests and an insane...

“Time Strikes Back” in This Sneak Peek at The Flash Season Premiere!

~Matt Key Guess what everybody. It’s almost that time of year, where the air outside has a brisk, crispy feel, the warm colors of Autumn start to slowly take over the cooler greens of Summer and the CW premieres all of their DC Comics series. One such series that is highly-anticipated after the events of last season is The Flash. At the end of last season, we saw Barry Allen finally grow weary of all these speedsters and villains killing his parents over-and-over again throughout time. In an exhausted and apoplectic rage, Barry Allen went back in time to...

Classic Inhumans Could Be Making Their Way to Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD This Season!

~Matt Key Remember a couple years ago, in 2014, when Marvel revealed their entire slate? Last on that list was Inhumans, which was supposed to hit in 2019. Many fans were confused by this inclusion as the Inhumans have never been too big of an IP in the Marvel Comics universe, so seeing this translation to the Cinematic side was a little hard to swallow. But then, Guardians of the Galaxy was even more unknown than the Inhumans and that is now one of Marvel’s biggest properties. Well, it seems as if Marvel might be letting that go. Earlier...

Cult Status, Part 1 – Examining “The Path” & “The Leftovers”

I EXPLOIT YOU, STILL YOU LOVE ME Cult Status, Part 1 – Examining “The Path” & “The Leftovers” Review by Mary Gent The Movie Guys Cult – (n) a relatively small group of people having religious beliefs or practices regarded by others as strange or sinister. A small yelp of glee escaped my mouth when I opened my mailbox today. Inside was a book I’ve been salivating about since all the hype began a few months ago. The Girls, the first novel for the very young Emma Cline, is garnering a lot of attention. It’s about a cult. More specifically,...

Review – Hulu’s Adaptation of Stephen King’s Novel ‘11.22.63’

11.22.63 Review Episode 1 “Rabbit Hole” by Adam Sullivan THAR BE SPOILERS AHEAD FOR EPISODE 1 Maybe you’re a Stephen King fan, or maybe you’re a JFK assassination conspiracy theorist, or maybe you’ll just watch James Franco in anything. There’s a lot of reasons to watch this mini-series from Hulu. But for me, this is a must-watch for one huge reason: time travel. Some of you may have read my posts on the topic of time travel (TT) in movies from last year. If not, you need to know that I have a particular view of this science fiction...

Joseph Scrimshaw Presents NETFLIX AND TERROR

~Joseph Scrimshaw This is a horror story. In a few years, I believe Netflix will have the technology to speak to us. To emote. When that happens, we are done as a culture. Forget skynet becoming sentient and bombing us. Netflix will sweet talk us and that will be the end. Please enjoy reading this tale of terror while reading is still something Netflix allows us to do. JOSEPH: Hello, Netflix. It’s me, Joseph Scrimshaw. You might remember me from such times as the night I got drunk and watched The Lair of the White Worm at 2 am...

The Fan Line Between Obsession and Addiction

By Tabitha Grace Smith Almost every geek hates the stereotype that fans aren’t mentally healthy in general. Fans fight those stereotypes. A lot. Often you’ll hear them sigh and say things like, “Yes, I have a career. Yes, I have a boyfriend. Yes, I am an adult.” Ultimately, fandoms have been amazing hobbies for most involved. Many folks who are of a quiet, introverted nature have found their life-long friends through online fandoms. In general, fandoms can be positive, amazing forces for good. That said, there’s a discussion to be had on the extremes that some people can go...

An Excerpt from “Life on the Street” – A Fictional Memoir from Bert

An Excerpt from “Life on the Street” by Paul Feldman J. Alphonse Gary served as Bert from Sesame Street’s personal assistant from 1968 to 1988. Below is an excerpt from his memoir, Life on the Street: 20 Years Behind the Scenes at Sesame Street: What later became known around the set as “The Bowie Knife Incident” was really the culmination of two solid years of Bert’s unchecked and fomenting rage. It was also his wake-up call that he had to clean up or face serious jail time, death, or both. I was eating lunch in the commissary with Luis when the...
