suicide shop

IMPORTANT WARNING! The following piece will be a discussion on the novel The Suicide Shop by French author Jean Teulé. With a title like that, there will be references to self-harm and suicide. We’ll also briefly go over the plot of the novel, so there will be spoilers. Reader discretion advised. Worst of Times Most post-apocalyptic stories show one person’s struggle to overcome a brutal environment destroyed by humanity. Robots, aliens, and/or zombies are out there, and it’s up to Bruce Ex Machina to do…something. Survive, I suppose. The people of Teulé’s world, however, don’t seem too keen on the idea. Instead, they pay a visit toRead More →

espionage

Greetings Geeks and welcome to another episode of Game on Girl! My apologies for the lag in episode releases for Game on Girl. I came back with the best of intentions for monthly content on our podcast feed but as my favorite poet says, “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.” That’s certainly how the last few months have gone for me. But I am back with a fantastic LIVE episode interviewing Jaimie Cordero from Espionage Cosmetics. We met up at Rose City Comic Con on September 8th. I attended Jaimie’s panel, Level Up: Be a Nerd Boss on Friday ofRead More →

game of thrones arya stark melisandre

Many of the exciting reunions we can expect in the final season of Game of Thrones are from characters who have a lot of history between them. But there are two characters who interacted for less than a minute, and their reunion has the potential to be one of the most interesting. Those two characters are Arya and Melisandre. The Meeting Arya and Melisandre meet when the latter comes to take Gendry away to use his blood to help Stannis. By that time Arya has significant feelings for Gendry, even though they may be completely plutonic. Once she learns Melisandre plans to take him away,Read More →

Llllllllllllllllllllllllet’s get ready to humblllllllllllllllllllllllle! That’s right, folks!  TGE Watches is back with another (and probably our last) episode of 2018, and we’re ending on a doozy!  The Handmaid’s Tale caught fire last year and we’re here to discuss season two in its entirety, and oh man is it some of the most depressing stuff that I’ve ever had the pleasure of experiencing through other people.  Host Dante Buccieri and cohosts Regina, Isabela, and Jaye cover everything that needs to be said about The Handmaid’s Tale in excruciating detail.  You’ll get depressed all over again just listening to us discuss pivotal events in the showRead More →

Hey, Geeks! Welcome to Your Favorite Thing Sucks, where I get to talk about all the worst parts of your favorite things. It took 12 seasons, but The Big Bang Theory is ending. And honestly, at this point, I’m just wondering what took so long. Let’s talk about why it caused more harm than good.   The Big Bang Theory is Really Just a Show About Stereotyping. And Not the Stereotyping You Should Expect. Look. I get it. The Big Bang Theory is supposed to be a positive representation of nerd culture. The poster children for the ‘losers’ that don’t normally get to be the hero or evenRead More →

It’s not certain whether some characters will meet again in the final season of Game of Thrones. For example, we don’t know whether Sandor Clegane, better known as The Hound, is headed to Winterfell with most of the other characters. But if he is, his meeting with Sansa Stark should be an interesting one. Little Bird All of The Hound’s interactions with Sansa take place during the first two seasons. During that time Sansa is very much afraid of him. It’s not surprising considering how unpleasant he is. He even says some things to her that are deliberately trying to scare her. Despite all ofRead More →

Hey, Geeks! Welcome to Your Favorite Thing Sucks, where I get to talk about all the worst parts of your favorite things. Even if you’re not an anime fan, chances are you recognize a certain spiky-haired boy wearing a bright orange jumpsuit. And I’m almost certain at least a tiny part of you hates him. We’re talking about Naruto (the anime, not the manga). Naruto is Basically JUST Filler Even die-hard Naruto fans (yes, I am aware of their rather derogatory designation in the fandom community. No, I will not be using it at all in this article) are aware that this is a huge issue.Read More →

At the time of writing this, I’m awaiting results for my audition to join the Chilling Tales for Dark Nights team. I’ve written about them before, but what I haven’t mentioned is their yearly contest, Evil Idol. Each year the team puts out a call for aspiring voice actors and horror lovers to compete. First place wins, among other things, the exciting chance to join the CTFDN storytelling team. Hundreds send in their recordings of spine-tingling terror, having practiced for countless hours perfecting their snarls and screams. And then there’s yours truly: going out on a limb for a shot at something amazing. Little scary, notRead More →
