  • I am sitting here in my little office still recovering from <a href="http://www.geekgirlcon.com/" target="_blank">GeekGirlCon</a>. This year, which is the convention's third year, was again at the Conference Centre across the street from Washington State Convention Centre in downtown Seattle. Once again, the show was expertly run. Not too many crowds. Volunteers were everywhere and always helpful. If you don't like cons because they are just too crowded and unruly, GeekGirlCon is a breath of fresh air

  • Okay, confession time, I recently got done hate-watching<em> Weeds</em>. It started enjoyably enough, but very quickly, by the second or third season, I began disliking the main character, mother-turned-drug dealer, Nancy Botwin.

  • The science fiction cartoon adaptation of <em>Spaceballs</em> caught us a little off guard here at the offices of IGP. To be honest, it had been talked about for so long, we weren’t even aware it was finished until right before it aired. It’s an okay cartoon, but it lacks much of the flair of the original movie, resorting to cheap boob jokes most of the time. Well, okay, the movie did that as well, but they also had a stellar cast and a distinct lack of low-budget Flash-type animation. It got us thinking about all the animated spin-off series that have come and gone. Some never got off the ground at all, while others were quickly cancelled.

  • I've talked about how much I hate stunt casting before, now I want to discuss something else. Sort of, the opposite of stunt casting. It's a character that only appears in a few episodes, but is so interesting, you keep hoping that character will become a series regular.
