Happy New Year! It’s that time again to look forward and see what’s in store at box office this year. I’ve compiled my list of 13 movies for 2013 to give you a look at my eclectic taste.
*Must-See meaning I really, really want to see these movies. Whether or not I make it to the theaters is another story. Breaking away for a 3 hour stint from the little man on one of our rare days off is a feat. All that being said, we will see how many of these I actually make it to see. Continue reading →
If you were online at all Monday, you may be aware that DC Comics released writer and creator Gail Simone from the “Batgirl” title.
My reaction: shock, fear, shock, disbelief, utter disappointment [for DC Comics], and a glimmer of excitement [Marvel, you are calling her, right?].
Gail Simone, if you are unaware of who she is, is one of the most popular writers at DCU. During her career she has written “Deadpool,” “Birds of Prey,” “Wonderwoman,” “The Secret Six,” and of course, “Batgirl.” She is among the loudest supporters of DCU and particularly of the New52. Gail has been out there waving the banner and beating the drum to encourage her loyal fans to continue after DC (for a lack of a better word) destroyed their continuity. She has had one of the most successful books of their run and THE most successful female-led book. To top it all off, the most recent issues have been met with praise from fans and critics alike.
Mattel Polly Pocket DC Villains Set- 2012 Comic Con Exclusive

Mattel Tiny Titans, Death- 2012 Comic Con Exclusive
Then I realized that my ass will be stuck outside the Convention Center– badgeless. So unless I can convince some unwitting convention-goer to obtain these awesomely cute items for me, I am out of luck. Then I remembered that I am great at finding unique items and that Etsy is my best friend.
Behold, friends! Prepare for geeky cuteness that you can purchase right here, right now! That take, “Exclusivity!”
As both a Mom and a Geek I just love these pieces by Charles Paul Wilson III. Winnie the Pooh meets heroes from both the Marvel and the DC Universe. If I would have found these a year ago they probably would have been the starting place for our son’s nursery!
In this day and age of online gaming and social media, we geeks have it sweet in the ability to jump on our PC’s or consoles with people from around the world and wreak havoc upon AI foes or one another in any number of settings no matter what time of day it is. Whether it’s banding together for a raid in World of Warcraft, or failing miserably to save the world in a game of Pandemic, one of the best gaming experiences a gamer can have is when teamwork with you closest friends brings sweet, sweet victory or amusingly humiliating defeat.
