Rudolph the Regular Reindeer

  Once again, the College Humor folks hit one out of the park. This is an interesting send-up of the original and an indictment of enforced homogeneity at the same time. Plus, it’s awesome.  See more funny videos and funny pictures at CollegeHumor.

Geek Parenting 101: How to Talk to Your Kids About Star Wars

Filament Magazine: Man Candy for Women with Brains

 It will not surprise those familiar with this space that we GeekaChicas have no problem sexually objectifying men. In fact, it comes as naturally to many of us as objectifying women does for some men. In our reviews, it is clear that the attractiveness of the male leads sometimes has an impact on our enjoyment of movies and television shows.  To deny that fact would be intellectually dishonest, and totally counter to our mission at GeekaChicas, which is nothing more than to be here, and to be ourselves. (We Chicas often hold different points of view on issues of morals or politics, but GC is committed to providing a forum for discussion.) We’re outspoken, opinionated women. Some of us like men, and not only for their brains. Therefore it’s only natural that we should review Filament Magazine, a magazine for women who like men and intelligent thought. (As the tag line to the left reads, “No Fashion, No Diets, No Celeb Rubbish.”)   What it does offer is a slick, smart read for women who think more about the way we relate to the world than simply what makeup or clothing we need in order to snag a man. In fact, this magazine has had articles exploring the possible link between bras and breast cancer,  the way neuroscience and science fiction are changing our view of such conditions as cerebral palsy and autism spectrum disorders, and Capoeira as dance, martial art, game or all three.   […]

Then you get Vampire Mob. The premise is simple, but deliciously clever: “Don Grigioni (John Colella) is a hitman who becomes a vampire because […]
