Review: The Brady Bunch - Season 1

Review: The Brady Bunch - Season 1

As any connoisseur of B-grade (or Z-grade) sci-fi and horror movies will tell you, there’s a huge difference between a bad movie and a movie so bad it’s brilliant (but in an awful way). The same thing goes for TV shows. The original Star Trek may be dated and have the cheesy sets and…

SIX OF THE WORST… things about apartment living

SIX OF THE WORST… things about apartment living

Sometimes I want to write about things that would make good “Six of the Best” columns, but they really aren’t “best” things, per se. Sometimes they’re “worst”. That’s why I’ve decided that the first SOTB of every month will now be a…

Tale of the Tape: Agent Phil Coulson vs. Agent Maxwell Smart

Tale of the Tape: Agent Phil Coulson vs. Agent Maxwell Smart

James Bond. Jim Phelps. Jason Bourne. Johnny English. That guy Bill Cosby played in I, Spy. Who doesn’t like spies? Well, evil spies don’t like good spies (and vice versa), but we like watching them anyway. Even that lousy Ethan Hunt guy who lied and said Jim Phelps had turned evil….

Rebuffing Buffy: A re-Buff

Rebuffing Buffy: A re-Buff

Last year there was chatter about a reboot of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie. Would it tie-in with Joss Whedon’s television spectacular including the whole scooby gang, timelines and plots? Would it be a glossed over variation of the movie from the early 90’s? Would anyone care? I fucking car…

SIX OF THE BEST… defunct webcomics

SIX OF THE BEST… defunct webcomics

I was originally going to start this out by suggesting six of the best webcomics for you to add to your reader/Facebook/whatever-catcher you use, but let’s be honest… we’re all already reading XKCD, Questionable Content, Something Positive, and Least I Could Do, right? However,…

Grandma: A Different Kind of Geek

Grandma: A Different Kind of Geek

It took me a long time to realize that I was a geek for what I liked. I thought that to be a geek you had to be really into sci-fi and fantasy and gaming (not that I’m not) but I thought without some of these elements you couldn’t be considered a geek. That’s not right at all, at least not for me…

Playground Deathmares

Playground Deathmares

I was talking to my roommate the other day. They were telling me all about taking their little one to the playground. He insisted on playing in the sections that were out of his age range. I chewed at my ice cream spoon and asked “WHAT?!” There are age sections in playgrounds now?? When in the fu…

SIX OF THE BEST… things about reading A Song of Ice and Fire after everyone else

SIX OF THE BEST… things about reading A Song of Ice and Fire after everyone else

My friend Courtney used to get on my case about never reading the Game of Thrones books. I was resistant — the author hasn’t finished the series, after all — and even when we were hanging out and she watched an episode with me in the room, all I remembered was “some guy…

It’s hip to be square root of 3

It’s hip to be square root of 3

For those who don’t know, the square root of 3 is an irrational number and is known as Theodorus’s constant. I could waffle on about Fermat’s method and all of that stuff, but I’d rather waffle about waffles, a far more rational thing in my estimation. Waffles make a…
