I can’t be the first person to notice this…

…recently I was watching Return of the Jedi with my 3 year old niece (“Look, robots!”), and during the scene where Leia takes off her bounty hunter disguise, I came to a realization, however minor: A character appears, defined by a scary costume and voice, and when she unmasks, you see that it’s someone familiar […]

Roger’s Diary of the Dead Review

Tonight I saw a preview screening of Diary of the Dead. What follows is a review containing very mild spoilers and a strong bitter taste. This review was brought to you by Tylenol PM and two bites of a fried catfish filet that smelled and tasted like my fish tank when I’m too lazy to […]

Do you like robots?

Forgive me, gentle EG readers, for I have sinned against you. I haven’t been spending enough quality time here, but there are good reasons for it. I’ve been toiling away on feature articles for Super7 Magazine about 1980s Japanese robot toys.

[BLANKS] on a [BLANK]

Yes, I know, in the year 2006, when you say something in the “blogosphere,” it has credibility for some reason. I’m a little old fashioned, though, and in my world, print beats pixels. Read this newspaper article. Remember, if it’s in a newspaper, even if it’s an opinion, it’s TRUE. – Roger

Review: A Scanner Darkly

The year is 2013, and America’s “War on Drugs” has entered a new and dramatically different phase with the introduction of Substance D. Deep cover agents like Bob Arctor seem to be fighting for both sides of the conflict. Which side is he really on, though? Does he even know?

Encyclopedia Dramatica

You already know about Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia that covers the significant accomplishments of the human race like science, history, and art. You’ve probably visited wikis devoted to somewhat less important (but far more entertaining) subjects, like Memory Alpha, Wookieepedia, and Battlestar Wiki. The bottom of the barrel is now being scraped at Encyclopedia Dramatica, […]

Kieran Vogel is the closest you could ever come to meeting a living, breathing cartoon character. Bake Snaker and I graduated high school with him, and according to Kieran he hasn’t accomplished anything since then.

Why I Hate Fandom, Case Study #1

I’ve always felt that Star Wars fans deserved a higher ranking in the Geek Hierarchy, far above the lower groups such as Transformers fans and self-styled American otaku. But then I come across stuff like this. Some context: author Karen Traviss writes the licensed Star Wars novels that deal with the Clone Wars. Some overly […]
