Halloween = Big-Time Cosplay!

It’s October and Halloween is upon us. The gang at BeatDownBoogie, as always, does not disappoint with their footage from DragonCon 2014. It is harder and harder to name every character I see, especially with all of the variations and mash-ups. Watch for what I can only describe as “Hawaiian Vacation Cobra Commander.” Below are […]

This could just be overspill from the tongue-in-cheek speculation that now that […]

What the H?!? Disney Buys Lucasfilm!

I cannot type fast enough – what does this mean? Well, more Star Wars movies, for one. Will they be awesome? Will Lucas be involved? What the what?!!? I have a bad feeling about this. But then again, I have known to make mistakes… from time to time. UPDATE!!! I have a copy of the […]

Filling The Black Hole

I just learned that the Repeater has a Geek Hole that needs filling as well – a BLACK Hole! The Black Hole is a movie that is on my “Yeah, you should see this” list. I will avoid spoilers, only to tell you that Slim Pickens pops up, and the superb score (check out the […]
