“Into the Dalek” Explores Doctor Who‘s Battle Between Good and Evil

When is a Dalek not a Dalek? Perhaps, when it’s a good Dalek? Is there even such a thing? The second episode of series 8 of Doctor Who, “Into the Dalek” asks that question — and answers a few others. Spoilers ahead.

Invisible bars (Watch_Dogs Rap f. Rich Prophet) [Video]

Aiden Pearce of Watchdogs exploited the Internet to make things happen.  But Big Brother is always watching.  The truth is a lie.  In this song, we made a lot of references to the movie 1984, the source of the concept of “Big Brother.”

Swift is the Anti-Cyrus, and Hilton is still WINNING!

Last week, my youngest daughter read me a Facebook conversation several of her friends were having that had to do with the new Taylor Swift video. One of her proclaimed Feminist friends had posted an article that I think was posted by Jezebel (don’t quote me on that) decrying Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” video as racist, because it only shows black women twerking. (Note: I didn’t say…

"Deep Breath" Leaves Doctor Who Fans Breathless for More

“Deep Breath” Leaves Doctor Who Fans Breathless for More

It’s finally here: season 8 of Doctor Who, and the debut of Peter Capaldi‘s first season as the Twelfth Doctor. After troubles like script leaks and early episode leaks, there was a lot of mixed talk; could Capaldi pull it off? Was Moffat‘s writing up to snuff? I think that “Deep Breath” has answered these questions — and more. Read on to find out, but beware: this review contains spoilers.

Attacks at SDCC Continues Alarming Trend of Assaults Towards Cosplayers

((Editor’s note: I did have stronger language in this article when I was first writing to show how I feel about these sub-human animals who would sexually abuse or victim shame another person is such ways, but out of respect for those women who agreed to contribute to this article I toned down the language a bit. But only just a bit.))
