I’m a Con Man

My favorite gaming experiences have been at games where I am part of a universe I really enjoy, like Firefly LARPs (Yes, this mythical creature exists!). One of my favorite films is Galaxy Quest because it is an interaction between the fans and ...   Source

What is a Browncoat?

As we previously announced, April we have declared the “Month of Browncoats and are writing and discussing all things related to Serenity this month. But, just what is a “Browncoat?” I mean, there are Coats, that are brown, but does it take more than having a brown leather jacket to make one a browncoat? (Note ...   Source

Brazilian Government wins best prank!

The state of Ceara in the northern part of Brazil wins best prank. While they used a lot of resources and personnel for only a few terrors, they went for quality over quantity and made sure every one of them was a success. This is the long con. The great pranks have different stages of ...   Source

Games so good I only want to play them once.

A very long time ago in a world far away, I used to be a general idiotic snob. I did not appreciate my health. I did not appreciate my cultural support. I did not even really appreciate my partner, although I thought I did. Then my partner began to experience severe weakness physically. It led ...   Source

Once upon a time, there was a crappy little tv show on the Fox Network that kept interfering with baseball and other, more important television shows. This show, the ‘cult classic’ known as Firefly, was a stinker. Let me tell you why this show only lasted one season. 1. The Theme Song. The song, called ...   Source

“I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others ...   Source

In Memory of Sir Terry

Sad news today, as you have probably already heard. The world has lost another great nerdy mind, Sir Terry Pratchett, the author of the popular Discworld novels. With the recent, and still painful loss of Leonard Nimoy, it is almost as if we have lost the two grandfathers of the Sci/Fi Fantasy world. A lot ...   Source

What Rocked about being an 80s Girl

Over the last several years, there has been a resurgence of 80s boyhood: Transformers, GI Joe, Ninja Turtles, the list goes on. I enjoyed the boy stuff in the 1980s, but there were some things, some experiences that were on the girl side of the 80s. But honestly, being a girl in the 1980s was ...   Source

Cosplay means you CAN ask first!

I am a guy. It really perturbs me that people use feminine terms for stuff that does not need those terms, I am not talking about “fireperson” and watching “David Letterperson interview Sarah Silverperson.” I am talking about terms like “gamer girls” and such. There are no hotties at a con. There are no hot ...   Source
