Just a keep post to wish everyone a happy Star Wars day!

Daytime TV is for the birds!

20 Feb

I have been sick at home since Wednesday evening… nice to be able to get the rest I need but man, is it boring! Yesterday, I discovered that TBS runs episodes of American Dad and Family Guy in the afternoon and happily spent a few hours enjoying that. Do you know what I noticed? That apparently if you are at home on a weekday watching cartoons, it is apparently because you have a drug abuse problem and you need to go seek treatment at Passages Malibu.

Seriously?  Continue reading

Seriously, I Love You But Half Your Movies Suck

30 Jun

So… I’m the kind of person who discovers an actor by catching them in something and then follows them through everything else they’ve done. When I used to work for Blockbuster 15 years ago, my video (eventually DVD) collection grew by leaps and bounds because I could order stuff I wanted for cheap. I used to own every Keanu Reeves and Tom Cruise movie ever made. (I stopped even seeing Tom’s stuff when he went nuts a few years ago) Now I have my Hugh Jackman collection. Which is a great way to waste a weekend, by the way. MmmmHugh.

Before I dig into these movies/actors- please note that I love each and every one of the actors. They’ve done some great stuff! And either I’ve met them and they are good people or someone I love has and has informed me they are. So let it be known that I am not making digs on them… I am merely examining that they have not always done the best films/projects. But as my beloved John Barrowman says about the delightful and awful, Shark Attack 3,- he did it for the money. So I assume… they did as well. And that’s just fine. 🙂 (ps… John’s famous line… NSFW)

CosPlay by the Rules!

23 Apr

So… years ago I was at SDCC with my brother and while waiting in line for a panel (the big line, for Ballroom 20) we started discussing the people CosPlaying that walked by. This conversation led to my Rules for CosPlaying. I’ve fine tuned them since then and after my recent visit to WonderCon 2012, I wrote them up for AFC. 🙂 (AFC has a bigger audience so it was the better choice for posting, in case you were wondering why the original post is there and not here). In any case- it’s a humorous read, but I am very serious about every point I make. And if you CosPlay, or know someone who does, or even if you just like to dress up for Halloween, these rules may save your day! Check it out- leave comments!

Equality in my comics!

26 Mar

Last fall, I got inspired by a conversation with a friend to rant on PL about the inequality of costumes in comic books. Continue reading
