You’re Never Weird On The Internet (Almost) by Felicia Day (book review).

To tell the truth, I’ve never heard of Felicia Day until now. Come to that, I doubt if she’s heard of me neither. The Internet is a big place after all. Joss Whedon has and, as he explains in his introduction, she was of significant help in getting his ‘Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog’ on-line and […]

Here we have actor and acting teacher Michael Laskin turning his course into the written word. His objective isn’t to explain how to do a particular sort […]

Message From Hiroshima (2015) (a film review by Mark R. Leeper).

First time writer/director Masaaki Tanabe recreates the place where he lived as a boy in Hiroshima as part of his presentation of the effects on his neighbourhood of being hit by the Hiroshima blast. Disturbing images are kept to a bare minimum, though the horrific cannot be entirely avoided. But, for the most part, this […]

I’ll walk 600 miles for one of your stormtooper smiles.

Here’s a very touching story that would play with the heart strings of even a Dark Lord of the Sith. With Kevin Doyle’s wife Eileen sadly passed away to cancer, our plucky Kevin decided he would honour her memory by marching the 600 miles to San Diego Comic-Con on foot in honour of her memory […]

The Power Of The Dark Side by Pamela Jaye Smith  (book review)

Snoopy flies … for real.

Not sure whether to file this under ‘too cool for school’, or ‘too much time on a designer’s hands’, but Otto Dieffenbach has now built a remote control quadcopter that looks a heck of a lot like a flying Snoopy on his dog-house, aka Charlie Brown’s dog in Peanuts. Snoopy even has his trademark Red […]
