The Blob 1988 Blu-Ray Review

29th October

The remake of The Blob is one of those rare films that not only pays homage to the original 1958 film but in some ways does an amazing job on embellishing along with updating it. The plot of the film is, Remake of the 1958 horror sci-fi about a deadly blob which is the spawn of a secret government germ warfare project which consumes everyone in its path. Teenagers try in vain to warn the townsfolk, who refuse to take them seriously, while government agents try to cover up the evidence and confine the creature.

Released in 1988 there were a number of other good horror films released that year including Child’s Play, Pumpkinhead, Hellraiser II, They Live and Serpent and the Rainbow. But it was The Blob that I was most excited for. I had been a fan of the original … Read More »



Halloween Costume Parade

27th October

With Halloween right around the corner there have been a lot of great halloween costumes floating around social media lately and I decided to pick some of the best ones that I have found. I have also included some of the great cosplay photos that I have taken over the years and added them in. The thing that all of these picture have in common are that they are all homemade costumes. While some of the pieces may be off the shelf they have all been made and not pre packaged costumes. The great thing about a lot of them are that you don’t have to spend a lot of money on a costume but if you spend a little time and effort the payoff can be fantastic.

Let’s start off with the kids. I think that one of the reasons … Read More »



New Comic Book Reviews Week Of 10/22/14

24th October

So much for the theory of catching up from last week because there are lots of #1 issues this week. So let’s get to business.

Multiversity: The Just #1

DC Comics Writer Grant Morrison, Artist Ben Oliver, Colorist Ben Oliver with Dan Brown, Letterer Clem Robins

The third chapter in Morrison’s Multiversity story was a bit disappointing. The plot from DC is, When they last collaborated, Grant Morrison joined artist Ben Oliver (LOBO, BATMAN/SUPERMAN) for the acclaimed ACTION COMICS #0. For their next team-up, the two superstars take a spin around the self-obsessed Earth-16 – a.k.a. Earth-Me! With all of the world’s threats having been handled long ago by their parents, the next generation of supers – including Chris Kent, Damien Wayne, Alexis Luthor, Offspring, Megamorpho, Donna Troy and more – find themselves labeled as superstars more often than super heroes. But with that fame … Read More »



NASA Ames Research Center 75th Anniversary Open House

22nd October

NASA’s Ames Research Center at Moffett Field California celebrated their 75th Anniversary Saturday October 18th and I was very fortunate enough to attend (Thanks to Shawn and Emily). We went to  the Mountain View Metro station to catch the free shuttle only to find out that it was going to take at least an hour to just get on a bus if we were lucky. So we decided to walk and while we walked all day we definitely beat the buses. The traffic on the street to the center was packed and the 101 freeway was jammed in both directions. When we arrived at the center they didn’t even bother to take our tickets so if you could get to the center you were allowed to go in.

There were 120,000 free tickets that were given away in less than 24 hours … Read More »



Calling all Gay Geeks. Bent Con is Almost Here.

20th October

Comic book/geek conventions come in all shapes and sizes. Some are single day gatherings and others are multi-day events. They all have several things in common, cosplay, superheroes/villains, vendors with toys, books, original art, and a sense of community. That sense of community is the strongest at Bent-Con. Why? Because Bent-Con is a comic/geek convention that specifically caters to the LGBT community.
This will be year 5 for the convention and will take place at the Burbank Airport Marriot Hotel on November 7-9.
Like any other comic convention, there are plenty of panels about geekdom and other assorted subjects. The dealer’s room will be filled with vendors offering original art, erotic and sexy superhero prints, writers selling their novels, original gay themed comic books and possibly cosplay accessories. Other events include the costume contest, karaoke, film screenings and gaming.

This year, organizers are … Read More »
