Dying is forever…unless it isn’t…

geek happeningsI first became aware of Kory Shrum through Twitter. I knew she was a writer but had no idea about what she had written. Then she started mentioning the second book of her Jesse Sullivan book series “Dying by the Hour.” It sounded so interesting I had to go and check out the first book of the series “Dying for a Living.” I am glad I did. I was instantly hooked by the character of Jesse Sullivan. She was snarky, and witty. Not unlike two of my other favorite characters from novels, Harry Dresden from Jim Butcher’s “Dresden Files” series as well as Rachel Morgan from Kim Harrison’s “Hollows” series.

We Be Geeks Review: Mimoco Star Wars MimoPowerTubes

wbg review w bgpI apologize for the delay in this review but it also gave me extra time putting these through their paces. What am I talking about? The back up batteries from Mimoco called the MimoPowerTube 2600. The ones I have are from the Star Wars series. I got the 4 Star Wars MimoPowerTubes (Darth Vader, C-3PO, Stormtrooper and Luke’s Lightsaber) right before going on vacation for the holidays. Now a disclaimer, when my family travels we carry a lot of tech and the AC power cables to go with it while at the hotel or where ever we might be staying. That is cool and all but what about that time in between, the travel time. That is why I got these. Now the tech we carry on a trip: 2 tablets (sometimes 3), 3 phones and 2 ipods. And be it in a car or at the airport/on a plane, you must have power when you can’t get to an outlet or access your power cables. That is were the MimoPowerTubes come in handy.  More

Tales from the Geek Side: Smothered The Review

tftgs

What do you get when after a convention appearance gig turns out to be wildly unsuccessful and unpleasant, Smothered, a comedy horror film by John Schnieder. A group of cult horror icons, Kane Hodder, R.A. Mihailoff, Bill Moseley, Don Shanks, and Malcom Danare, find themselves persuaded to “haunt” a trailer park for the promise of $1,000 a piece for what should be relatively easy work. When they arrive they meet their employer – the trailer park’s owner – an unpleasant old bat named Agnes and her much more pleasant (at least to the eye) daughter DeeDee, who lives up to that name in the most obvious way. The group arrives at the park but soon discovers that there is more to the job than they had initially been expected and that their own lives are at risk. More

Now Geek This: The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug review

cooltext1205573672Hello, and welcome to another exciting edition of Now Geek This.  Today, I will be reviewing The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, directed by fan favorite Peter Jackson. 

Before I begin my review, I must reveal two important factors regarding my viewing of this movie.  The first thing I must disclose is that I have not read the Hobbit or even watched the Rankin/Bass cartoon since I was a very young child, so the exact details of the story are a distant memory to me.  I know what you are thinking, “blasphemy!”  Just hold on a minute, I think that gave me a fresh perspective on these movies.  I know the basic story of the Hobbit of course; it is just the exact details of the story that elude me.

Dark Horse makes a 'Sacrifice'

SACRI-HC-4x6-SOLRemember how the end of the world was supposed to happen last year? I was not fooled either. But Sam Humphries saw it as an opportunity to use it as a basis for Sacrifice, a 6 part series following Hector, a Joy Division fan and an epileptic like Humphries himself. This man from San Diego is thrown back in time 700 years in a psychedelic journey to heart of of the Aztec Empire. I found this series a great read with all the insight into the Aztec culture and history. More
