Earth-Modern Race in Fantasy: The Balance No One Talks About and the Quest for “Nobody Cares”

Originally posted on House of Error:
After my last article, it’s become essential to talk about something I’ve considered for a long time. My last article, of course, was all about the uncanny in fantasy—the strange balance there has to be between elements that are familiar and unfamiliar (on a scale skewed by theme and…

Leaked Deadpool Game Reveal Cable, Death, and Some Good Ol’ Violence

Thanks to AllGamesBeta and Rob Liefeld’s blog, we’ve gotten confirmation that Cable and Death are in the game (Deadpool’s sometimes partner and sometime paramour, respectively), as well as scoring tons of screenshots that show off Deadpool’s propensity for violence, a ruined Genosha setting, and… Sinister thugs? Cable is a major comic character: the son of … Continue reading

Biden Was Sitting Right There!!!

Just watched the Vice Presidential Debates… and jesus, was it a heated debate. Loved it. While I won’t say how I felt about the debate here, I will say that my girlfriend made me notice how much I loved Biden’s “I was sitting right there!” line every time he referred to Obama’s attempts at getting … Continue reading

One Lovely Blog Nomination! One For Me, 15 For You!

I’m not sure what we did to piss off Lady … Continue reading

Made of Earth, Made of Stars

Forgive me, this may sound crazy: a month or so ago I was pretty damn impressed by Miley Cyrus. Religious groups on the net damn near went up in arms when the young star quoted physicist Lawrence Krauss and the relationship of stars (not celebrities like Cyrus, but stars like our sun) to humans: “Forget … Continue reading

Moving On From Infinite Ammo and Getting To The Next Stage

Infinite Ammo is gone. I won’t go into the who’s and why’s here, but it has been one hell of a year working at Infinite. Getting to know the basics of online media journalism, getting to know myself better as a writer, and getting to work with other writers on a collaboration were all pretty … Continue reading

What’s Up With Dr. Pepper’s New “Manly” Ad?

Just saw today that Dr. Pepper’s released a new drink… and with it, a very male-centric commercial. Maybe it’s just me, but Dr. Pepper is the last soda I think of when I think “manly”. Matter of fact, I’m generally rather indifferent to Dr. Pepper. Not my kind of drink. But what’s with the Axe … Continue reading
