The Power of Social Media

15 Oct

I’ve often been asked by people who don’t use any form of Social Media as to what the point of it is. This got me thinking as to just how powerful a tool it could be, so I thought about my own experiences with Twitter and how just one tweet from Wil Wheaton 18 months ago changed the entire direction of my life.

Guest post!! ~ Commercial Lines: Cramping TARDIS Cosplay Style

13 Oct

Those of you who have been around since the beginning of the site know all about our pal, Charity. Well… she has graced us with a guest post!

****************************************************************

As a long-time nerdy convention attendee, I have a lot of respect for cosplayers that make their own costumes.  The time, energy, and creativity often spent on their craft can yield some pretty amazing creations.  While I mostly observe and appreciate cosplay, I’ve had some recent fun dressing up for conventions the last couple years – mostly coinciding with my Halloween costume choices.  I certainly don’t exist anywhere near the ranks of elaborate costuming, tailoring, and concept design and know-how that can often go into cosplaying, but I think it’s important to have fun with it all.  Continue reading

I can’t be witty when I am tired. Bear with me. Just in from a a very fun concert event and though a review from me right would suck, I do want to share some. Essentially this is the important piece you need to know- Bon Jovi puts on a damn fine show. Continue reading

Earlier this year, I talked about my thoughts on Arrow during its mid-season hiatus, and with the second season about to premiere this month, I thought it would be fitting to reflect back on some of the pluses and minuses of season one.  There are some spoilers, so catch up before you read this: Continue reading

I’m out of posts! I’m out of time! I’m out of Music! Help!

5 Oct

So… it’s one of those months. There is both too much and too little to post on. And I’m completely swamped. My brain is too tired to come up with a topic for today and sadly, I’m out of backlogged and scheduled posts.

It’s been a while since I did a music post though, and I’d really like to do another. Continue reading

GOTHAM CENTRAL by Ed Brubaker, Greg Rucka, Michael Lark, Kano, and Stefano Gaudiano (DC / collected)

Its hard not to feel bad for the police department of Gotham City.  Like any big city, they have to contend with a good amount of crime on the streets, but unlike most cities, a majority of those crimes aren’t being caused by abnormal or superpowered criminals.  And then there’s that vigilante who patrols the streets dressed as a bat that they have to sometimes rely on for help.  Like I said, it’s hard to be a cop in Gotham.
