Science fiction music explores technology and alternate realities

The year is 2036 and we now live in a grim world. Art and culture have been outlawed and freedom is a thing of the past. But in a secret location, a rebellion is forming. A rebellion of dancing soldiers… This is the premise of the new video from Jabbawockeez, an eight-member hip-hop dance crew […]

Marvel Puzzle Quest & Almost Human

Yikes! February is almost over and I nearly missed my blog date AGAIN! This time I can totally blame the hubby. He introduced me to Marvel Puzzle Quest and all I can say is thank all the powers that be that I’m not on a horrific deadline because I am ADDICTED. I don’t play a […]

Dirk Gently and the short, quirky science fiction show that didn’t suck

I heard the words, “the fundamental interconnectedness of all things,” while hunched over my laptop at the dining table. I couldn’t see the TV but I could see my husband. “Is that Dirk Gently?” I asked. Voice infused with incredulity, he said, “How did you know? It’s only the first minute of the show.” He […]

Eureka! A little retro revival…

If my resolution this year was to “remember when I’m supposed to blog” I’ve already failed! But this week, I remembered… a few minutes ago. I haven’t read a lot of sci-fi books or watched a lot of movies lately – between the holidays, a sick cat and two deadlines, I’ve been busy, busy, busy. […]

SF in 2014

2014 is going to be great! There’s so much to look forward to. As we made this list of what we’re looking forward to from SF in 2014, we got all distracted by geeking out about how much fun it was all going to be. TV Sense8 is a Netflix series debuting in late 2014. […]

Deck the halls with geekiness

Happy holidays! Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Solstice, Festivus, Hogmanay, New Year’s, Epiphany/Three Kings Day, Boxing Day or the birthdays of science fiction authors Arthur C. Clarke and Philip K. Dick on December 16, it’s that time of year for festive foods and gift giving. We had a geeky yuletide at our house. Many […]

The awesomeness that is Wesley Crusher

HAHAHA – gotcha! You thought I’d lost my mind, didn’t you? Seriously, though, despite my indifference to Wesley Crusher as a character (I didn’t feel the savage hatred some others did), since then, I’ve discovered a love of Wil Wheaton. Of course, his tweets are generally amusing as hell. He’s also had some awesome bit […]

To boldly smooch where we haven’t smooched before

Speaking of sci-fi romance and anniversaries, we recently passed the 45th anniversary of the first scripted interracial kiss between a white man and a black woman on American television in the Star Trek episode “Plato’s Stepchildren.” The episode aired to U.S. audiences on November 22, 1968. The kiss between Uhura and Kirk wasn’t the first interracial […]

Doctor Who 50th Anniversary

Okay, who’s seen it? Just in case you haven’t, I’m going to try not to give away any spoilers, but wow, it was incredible. Although we DVR’d it, we decided to go see it at the movies in 3D. The 3D was mostly unnecessary, but seeing it at a theatre made it a little more… […]

It’s all a bit silly… and that’s OK

Every single person reading this has a ridiculous skeleton somewhere in their closet. Whether it’s a complete collection of Batman Forever trading cards lovingly stored in plastic sleeves, an 8th-grade notebook of sincere but awful poetry that should be burned, or files of fanfic about you and Data. And Jayne Cobb. And Batman. At the […]
