Orlando Overdrive 2018 Review
For a few hours on a Saturday night, I and many other geeks, nerds, and various weirdos (I say this with affection since I’m including myself among them, of course) got to experience a small taste of the old days when Nerdapalooza and Orlando Nerd Fest ruled the summers. Orlando Overdrive returned once again to the newly redesigned Geek Easy. This was my first one, and it really makes me wish I’d gone in the

Character Spotlight: Jessica Jones

It's the spark inside Jessica that keeps her going throughout the dark

In Deep Blue Sea 2, shark conservationist Dr. Misty Calhoun (Danielle Savre) is invited to consult on a new, top secret project run by pharmaceutical billionaire Carl Durant (Michael Beach).

Geek Music Episode 131: BType
In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk again to B of BType (that’s now technically the band name, but it’s also still kinda his name so it gets a bit weird).

Contest: Win Claws: The Complete First Season on DVD!
Claws is a midnight-dark, wickedly funny meditation on female badness set in a South Florida nail salon. It follows the rise of five diverse and treacherous manicurists working at the Nail Artisan of Manatee County salon, where there is a lot more going on than silk wraps and pedicures. Claws is about good women caught in bad places with worse men. It's the story of hardworking women trying to get by in this economy, set against the surreal, bright, gritty landscape of Florida and the luscious, absurd, extreme excesses of the crime
