Class is In Session on BBC America!

This is an exciting weekend for Whovians; we get both the Season 10 opener for Doctor Who, and the series premier for Class, which I can’t help but think owes an awful lot to Sara Jane Smith. Liz Sladen may not have been the first teacher featured on Doctor Who (that honor goes to Ian […]

The announcement was made today that NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope has found 7 rocky planets ranging in size and density from Mars to and a bit beyond Earth. All of them are potentially within liquid water orbital range of their sun, three of them permanently, and depending on the green house gasses composition of the […]

Someting to Do: Movies

The choice this week is Spectre, the latest in the James Bond series, and perhaps the last that Daniel Craig will be Bond for. I appreciate the whole Day Of The Dead tie in, considering the timing. There are also a couple of other good choices, including The Peanuts Movie for classic animation fans, and […]

This week we get Chappie, the latest tale of evolution and injustice from Neill Blomkamp. This one looks to be a fitting followup to District 9, in the same spirit and filmed in the same area.

We Lost Leonard Nimoy

As you have probably heard by now we lost Leonard Nimoy today. He was an amazing actor, but first and foremost he was Spock.

Terminator Genisys trailer

I loved the first two films in the franchise, the ones after not so much. This trailer makes […]

Music from Old Machines

Some of this stuff you just can’t make up. How about Eye of the Tiger played on a dot matrix printer? Or maybe you would prefer Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D Minor? These are just two of the wonderful choices created by MIDIDesaster, a person who’s motto is Abusing old hardware to play music. […]

Happy Birthday, Doctor Fan

My friend Shawn just celebrated his birthday the other week, and this is the cake his wife got for him. It is always a good thing to be appreciated for who you really are; happy birthday, Shawn!
