And so it begins. That endless parade of people exhorting us to thank all our veterans for their service or sacrifice. It happens every May, and inevitably makes me wonder why. We have a Veterans Day, and it’s in November. Why is it that so many Americans refuse to acknowledge Memorial Day as a day [...]

As the evening approached the golden hour, I took a stroll down to Goat Field and stumbled across this tableau. Over the next hour or so, I stood and watched the herd until it decided grazing time had come, and followed their path from outside the fe

At some point during the third act of Star Trek Into Darkness, I realized that I actually was bored. In the midst of whatever number it was of the countless series of over-energized set pieces which comprise the film, I realized that I actually had tuned out and mentally drifted away. When the movie was [...]

It’s recently been pilot season on Amazon, as the site offered up a slate of comedy and children’s programming to be viewed, considered, and voted on by the streaming public. Amongst the selection: the almost universally panned Zombieland: The Series from the same writers as the originally movie, featuring the s

Early this afternoon, the extended trailer for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. dropped (at the same time the network posted the trailers for all their other new shows, alleged "tweet-to-unlock" campaign notwithstanding) and at around the 2:19 mark comes a s

As part of Gender Through Comic Books, a massive open online course to examine “how comic books can be used to explore questions of gender identity, stereotypes, and roles”, the students’ final assignment was to “create a comic based on a story regarding gender you or a close friend/family member has

December 7, 2007, was Mutant Enemy Day on the Writers Guild of America strike lines. For four hours, writers, actors, other creatives and crew, and fans walked the picket line together outside Fox Studios on West Pico Boulevard in Los Angeles, California. This photo

In the middle of last year after seing Brave, I defended the fact that Merida was a princess, arguing that "being a princess isn’t irrelevant to the story, exactly, since it’s royal power which drives the dramatic shorthand of changing

For several years now, the owners of the one-time location of the Monte Carlo have rented goat herds once or twice a year to tend the empty lot. The current herd is owned by Creative Woodworking NW, which is adjacent to the lot and unofficially kept an eye on the previous

At first glance, the story of trying to crowdfund more Young Justice seems as groan-worthy as you expect it to be. After half an hour or so of looking around, however, I think that The Mary Sue gets this story somewhat wrong, although they at least (following the “via” chain here) don’t seem to follow the

It’s perhaps the single most iconic anything from the late, lamented television series Firefly. Certainly it’s the quickest way to spot a Browncoat amidst and amongst the teeming masses at a comic book convention. More, because within the narrative of the show the original was handmade by Jayne’s mother, i

This photo by Fred Dufour for AFP was the fifteenth image on a blog post for The Atlantic called Femen Stages a ‘Topless Jihad’ (see this HuffPo piece for some background), which depicted scenes from around Europe “in support of a young Tunisian activist named Amina Tyler [who last month] posted naked imag

@feliciaday says a true geek is someone who fought the system to love what they love. Word! #eccc — Rob Salkowitz (@robsalk) March 1, 2013 In the middle of last year, I became mildly apoplectic over the fact that just months after releasing a song in which she blasted geek pretenders who “never earned a part of

The shot heard ’round the film and television industry today, of course, was The Veronica Mars Movie Project, in which Rob Thomas and Kristen Bell launched a crowdfunding campaign for the long-wanted but ever-denied movie followup to the cult favorite series that ended six years ago after three seasons. Inevitably, th

There was lot of fawning news coverage of the first Wizard World Portland this past weekend; it’s tough, I suppose, to pass up the opportunity to talk to Lou Ferrigno, Henry Winkler, or (?) the cast of The Real World: Portland. The prize for perhaps the most exasperating coverage, however, surely goes to this Steve Du

“It has also been suggested,” posts DarkCryo to its internal forums that you likely can’t access, “that RCCIS (our parent Corporation) has no authority to issue common shares by Industry Canada.” For the record, that’s not quite what has been suggested. What’s been suggested —

Once upon a time a company named Booster Events screwed over Firefly fans (there’s much more here) due to financial troubles mounting a convention for which 500 people already had paid their hard-earned money. These were fans themselves, in so far over their heads they ruined their own lives for a time and if not for

In the latest round of controversy surrounding the unofficial and unlicensed Firefly massively-multiplayer online role-playing game from DarkCryo, I focused mainly on its violation of Indiegogo’s terms of service, but I wondered aloud whether or not their fundraising activity in fact also violates laws regulating the

When last we spoke of DarkCryo, the company’s most recent statements had confirmed the criticisms I and others had been leveling against them. Today marks the launch of their crowdfunding campaign, and so the inevitable coverage from gaming sites. And, of course and exhaustingly, another round of controversy. I won

Every now and then, someone links to my no-cruft (meaning no ads, no credits, no historical context, no extraneous anything of any kind) page for Mark Twain’s The War Prayer, which I’ve maintained since 2001 in the wake of 9/11 and the United States’ invasion of a country that had nothing to do with it.
