When I was sixteen, one My of my lifelong best friends introduced me to a cheesy little film called “Help!” (1965) starring the Beatles. Help! Now, I’d heard the Beatles before, but I really listened to them the first time while watching this silly little film. It could be the silly story line (Ringo has a [...]

I want to take a moment to share the story of a friend of mine, Meka. Meka is one of those people who truly is a super fan. She is the Headmistress of Houston Harry Potter Meet-up, a co-Director of Camp 9 3/4, a Browncoat, and most recently, the Ylvis Superfan. But you can’t describe Meka […]

At Maricopacon 2014 the Land of the Nerds staff had a chance to play a couple of interesting card games specifically for review for our readers.

If you’ve been following the Dr. Who blogs on this site, you’ll know I’m a fairly recent convert to the world of Dr. Who. And for the most part, 99 percent of the time, I love the show. I really do. But, sometimes, just sometimes, mind you, there are aspects of the long-running scifi show […]

When I was young, I heard about tabletop role playing games (RPGs) in hushed tones. Dungeons and Dragons was ‘evil.’ The people who played it were actually all Satanic devil-worshipers who were using real magic spells to drive their friends to suicide. People pretend to be thieves and wizards, evil things, and become so in [...]

Sci/Fi Fantasy has a variety of strong, powerful, superb female role models, and the Firefly ‘Verse is no exception. In this particular post, I want ...
First, let me apologize for taking so long to write this blog. I had a rather busy month of August, plus I spent time reading the Mistborn series so I could do a proper showcase for the character of Vin, from Mistborn. I promise that soon, I’ll be getting back to a regular blogging schedule, [...]

Puppetry was a strong part of my childhood. I thought of the Muppets, the Fraggles, the residents of Sesame Street as real individuals. I really got into the Nickelodeon show “Pinwheel” (I still hum the song to myself whenever I see a Pinwheel). I enjoyed puppetry so much that when I was a teenager, I […]

It wasn’t a movie, it wasn’t a variety show. It was… The Star Wars Holiday Special. “I said: ‘You’ve chosen to build a story around these characters who don’t speak. The only sound they make is like fat people having an orgasm,’” the 250-plus-pound Vilanch recalls. “In fact, I told Lucas he could just leave ...
Okay, before I start telling you this small adventure, let me be clear to say that I do not have children, so I’m going to have to tell this little story of mine as it played out with my brother and one of my sisters. This stretches back several years, so remain patient. Star Wars ...
Star Wars fans are a different breed of people then Star Trek fans. I notice this as an outsider looking in at the two genres. Growing up I was not allowed to watch mainstream TV or go to the movies. I did not see Star wars until I graduated Boot Camp in 1989, 12 ...
