I Don’t Wanna Grow Up Part 2: Saying Goodbye to Toys R Us

As we showed you not that long ago, as soon as Toys R Us announced its liquidation sale people started to tear the stores apart. Now, with fewer than three days remaining on many of my local stores, I came in to pay my respects one last time. I’ll never know the joys (or frustrations) […]

Nerd Food: Banana Omelette Cake from Japan Crate

Bananas are some of my favorite fruit. They’re healthy for you, and they have a nice, mild sweet taste. These banana omelette cakes from Japan Crate were enticing, but were they any good? Clearly these aren’t egg and banana omelettes, as one might think — they’re little cakes folded over with banana cream inside! These […]

Splash into Summer with ‘The Little Mermaid’ Nail Art

I really love nail art. I wish I could do my nails up in such dazzling display, but alas, they would get ruined. These The Little Mermaid nails will really make a splash for any mermaid-lover this summer, so if you don’t have a labor-intensive job or you’re heading to a fancy event soon, go […]

These Mickey Ice Cream Bar Ears Are Amazing, and We Need a Pair

Oh my cheese and crackers. Look. At. These. Ears. These adorable new ears were inspired by one of Disney’s most iconic in-park snacks: The Mickey Ice Cream Bar. Obviously I need a pair, more than I need the rose gold or millennial pink ears (which I still want). These are perfect for everyone who loves […]

Summer is here, and with it comes heat and sweat. Now, I don’t mind the heat. I prefer summer to winter, but wearing a ponytail everyday can be a little monotonous.

Money in the Bank 2018 Upset: Ronda Rousey vs. Nia Jax

Going into this match, I was nervous. Nervous that WWE would drop Nia Jax‘s title to Ronda Rousey, a move that would seem premature and undeserving. But it would have made sense since she is going to be inducted into the 2018 UFC Hall of Fame, and having her wearing the RAW Women’s title looks […]

Castle of Horror: The Blob Suggests Teen Gangs Are Here to Save Us All

We discuss the 1958 film The Blob, often cited as the film debut of Steve McQueen.

We discuss Steve McQueen (27 […]

These Marvel Comics Suits from FUN are the Perfect Office Attire

Sometimes I need to get dressy for my regular job. Maybe I have to give a presentation, or I need to go to a networking event. Usually these types of events fill me with dread, since I own almost no business attire. Seriously, I’m a writer. I sit in an office in a basement and […]

Smackdown Live

SmackDown Live is Now the WWE’s Best Show

While RAW is still great and has some exceptional talent, SmackDown has seen an upswing in better stories, better matches, and all of the talent seems to have much better chemistry. Last night’s show was absolutely a ton of fun to watch. Every single match was great, and for me it was hard to pick […]

Asuka and Mandy Rose Have One of Their Best Matches Yet on SmackDown Live

Honestly, give it up to Mandy Rose. Since climbing the ranks, she’s really made a name for herself. She’s a capable superstar, and last night she had a one-on-one with Asuka — who is still one of the hardest women to beat on the roster. Soak in #GodsGreatestCreation, @WWE_MandyRose… #SDLive 💛💛💛 pic.twitter.com/YpNwmLWugy — WWE (@WWE) May […]

Balticon 2018 Cosplay Workshop: Making Fuzzy Cat Ears

So, I used to cosplay. When I was younger I’d sew costumes together for Otakon and go about my little anime-loving way. I’ve gotten out of cosplay for the most part, but every now and again I still love to create things. At Balticon this past weekend, there were a number of workshops where participants […]

The Women’s Money in the Bank Roster Is Set – Who Will Win?

As of last night, Sasha Banks is the last superstar to enter the Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match. The lineup is pretty solid for this year, and frankly I don’t know who I want to win. #TheBoss @SashaBanksWWE has filled out the field for the Women's #MITB #LadderMatch! https://t.co/F7dGZnEQR2 pic.twitter.com/NN31mRuP4x — WWE (@WWE) […]

Nia Jax Taunts Ronda Rousey During Monday Night RAW

During RAW last night, Nia Jax came out for what I thought would be a match. It didn’t really matter against whom; I just wanted to see her beat someone up. Instead we got a promo where Jax taunted Ronda Rousey for a good 10-15 minutes. You are looking at an IRRESISTIBLE FORCE, the #RAW […]
