Halloween = Big-Time Cosplay!

Roundup: The Summer So Far

Whew! It’s been an action-packed summer movie season, filled with explosions, people dying horribly and Shakespeare. I’ve been reviewing stuff as fast as I can for our good buddies over at Movie Meltdown, so here’s what we’ve got so far. Still really, really looking forward to Pacific Rim… Oh, and do try to see Much […]

This Might be Why the Repeater Doesn’t Understand Superheroes

Towerbot’s swear filter caught a few cosplay-related videos that are NSFW, but rather than purge them from memory, we decided to […]

It’s certainly not new, but I’ve always found it interesting, in that “intelligent people knowingly overthinking something by a good long bit” kind of way. It’s a short piece […]
