I mean guys wrestling in giant monster suits as they destroy cardboard cites! How could this be not be awesome in every conceivable way? Called Kaiju Big Battel, it’s apparently been around for for years and now has a weekly home on the new The Monster Channel. […]Read more "This is a thing!!!"
Just some things I’ve been musing upon that don’t deserve whole blogs to themselves. Played The Adventures of Tom Stranger, Interdimentional Insurance Agent for the nerdlings (now 11 on Tuesday and 14, respectively) and their enjoyment confirmed that I do indeed have a teen boy trapped in my head, driving the humor train. Not sure […]Read more "Random Thoughts: Father’s Day Edition"
Since I broke my own no-politics-on-the-blog rule yesterday and since this has been a pretty damned dark week for the nation, I thought we could all use a good laugh today. Larry Correia’s The Adventures of Tom Strange, Interdimentional Insurance Agent is currently available through June 21st as a free audiobook from Audible. I […]Read more "Something “Strange” for Your Tuesday"
Less than a month until this year’s festival. Come join the Beautiful Bald Babes as we once again shave our heads for childhood cancer and, while you are there, enjoy beer and a Proper Pie or two. It’s a great event and the Saint Baldrick’s Foundation will hold their annual head-shaving event Saturday […]Read more "Coming Soon! The Church Hill Irish Festival And Bald Heads for a Good Cause"
I don’t really think of myself as a tea person, but I got some Geeky Hostess Mrs. Bennett’s Nerve Tonic herbal tea in my latest subscription box from Espionage Cosmetics. Very nice stuff, smells and tastes good, and is pretty to boot. I love the clear topped tins that let you see the potpourri-like concoctions […]Read more "Stuff I Like: Nerdy Tea"
Note: All photos herein were taken by me. I tried to remember to ask folks if it was OK to share them in this venue, but I know I missed a few people. If you are featured here and would prefer not to be, please let me know and I will remove you. Honestly, I […]Read more "It’s the Most Nerdi-Ful Time of the Year: MarsCon 2016"
Did I really just hear Beth in a freaking Volkswagen commercial? What is this world coming to? Somehow is seems appropriate that it involves an amusement park (which reminds me, I’ve still gotta do full movie review on that whole KISS and Scooby Doo thing). Here’s the last time that happened. OK, gotta go put my […]Read more "What the..?"
One of my resolutions is to get back on a regular blogging schedule, 3 (well, more likely 2) days a week minimum. I really want to start doing more movie reviews as well, though I doubt not that my atrocious taste in music will somehow remain a defining feature around here. I suffered a rather […]Read more "HAPPY 2016!!!"
My latest nerdicure turned out so cute I was compelled to share. It’s a base layer of Nicole by OPI in Freshly Squeezed, topped off by Espionage Cosmetics ‘Nailed It’ wraps in Batty, which has a clear background, unlike their other wraps. I topped the whole thing off with a single coat of clear Sally […]Read more "Halloween Nerdicure – I’ve Gone Batty"
Alice’s signature tune. Sadly all copies of the clip from the CBS special with Vincent Price seem to have been pulled from YouTube, Boo!!! This is, if I have to guess, from the Trash tour. And because you can’t have just one rendition, here’s Alice and some much furrier monsters performing this one on The […]Read more "Monster, Monster – Welcome to my Nightmare"
