Why so many paranormal shows? Maybe its because so many people believe in that stuff….
Donatello, Raphael, Michelangelo and Leonardo (Splinter!): who are they really for? Certainly not the same audience as Howard the Duck.

Yes, it’s true. Most older folks suck at playing video games. The real question is – do they care?
Travis issues an impassioned plea to STOP THE MADNESS!
I guess what I’m saying is, extraordinary claims don’t really require extraordinary evidence; they just require good, scientific evidence. The same kind that proved the Earth wasn’t flat and F = MA.

Review of Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell, focusing on prose and creativity in plot.
Review of the video game Devil May Care with an emphasis on video game writing.

In Star Trek / Doctor Who: Assimilation Squared, we are treated with probably the most accurate comic representations of both TNG and Matt Smith era Doctor Who.
It seems like just yesterday I’d won a pack of strange cards with the word magic written on them. Peeling off the foil revealed strange, mystical images and symbols — both enticing and entrancing. I was 11 years-old, it was 1994, and I’d just started a lifelong journey into the world of Magic the Gathering. […]
