I now have three conventions I go to yearly: Marcon in May, DragonCon in September, and BroadwayCon in January. I usually end up on a minimum of 3 panels at Marcon, sometimes more. I present at the Comics and Popular Arts Conference (CPAC) and march in the parade at DragonCon. I am one of the… Read More Equality and Conventions
I’m going to try something different. I’m going to write this post as I watch the episode. Granted it’s 3:14am EST, but it just became available in my Amazon Video queue (we’re working on cutting cable). I may leave it as this. I may post a more coherent blog post later. I don’t know. Anyway,… Read More Doctor Who, “The Pyramid at the End of the World”
There were two storylines in last week’s episode of Doctor Who: the present and the past. Both had their intriguing points and their faults. Spoilers after the hopefully non-spoilery photo below.
This is an interesting look at how companions, all female so far, are written in Doctor Who. As the author of the post notes at the end, this is not perfect. But it is a start and an interesting insight into the writing of the series. In April 2014, I completed a study, with several other… Read More Companions in “New” Who
If you haven’t seen “The Husbands of River Song”, don’t keep going. Go. Find it. Watch it. It is so much fun and a wonderful episode.

I did worse things than you could ever imagine, and when I close my eyes… I… Read More I’ll just leave this here…
I’ve been thinking. People keep asking me what I want to focus on while I’m in graduate school. I have a lot of ideas. But there’s one I’ve been thinking about a little more than the others: conventions and costuming. Which has me thinking about my own experiences with conventions and how it has changed… Read More Conventions
In April 2014, BBC America aired a four-part series titled The Real History of Science Fiction. Naturally, I was really excited. Getting to look at science fiction over time? Yes, please! As I watched it, I was loving it, but there were a few little things that were bugging me. Seeing it again has reminded… Read More The Real History of Science Fiction
I’ve talked about everything else in The Day of the Doctor, let’s talk about the Doctor and his multiple regenerations. The first time he meets another regeneration is when Eleven jumps into the time fissure and runs into Ten. That scene was brilliant! Sizing each other up was hilarious. Seeing how skinny Ten was from… Read More The Day of the Doctor: Part 2
After the events of The Night of the Doctor, I was eagerly awaiting The Day of the Doctor. I watched it four times that night: the first time it was shown, the second time with the added commentary from Tennant and Smith, the DVR-ed first time, the DVR-ed second time. I kept noticing things each… Read More The Day of the Doctor
