So, you know how I’m bad at cross-posting over here? Yeah… Prepare yourselves.
So, in the eternal quest to get the migraines to take a hike, I’ve been exploring options for reading ebooks. And I was messing around on the Amazon site, poking at Kindles. I asked the Martian if I could borrow his to see how it played with the migraines. To give it a shot I… Read More Geek Girls Rule! #572 – Review: Midnight Riot (Rivers of London Bk 1) – Ben Aaronovitch
Ok, so today I’m going through my email, and I see this article. Of all the characters I thought Marvel would give a property, Daimon Hellstrom was not even in the top 30.

So, I did sit down and watch this on Sunday night while the Geek Husband What Rules ran his gaming group. It is both not as as bad I had feared, and just as bad if not worse. Made in 1982, it opens with a gross, sexually harassy window washer bugging a (sooooo early 80s)… Read More Geek Girls Rule! #397 – Review: Q: the Winged Serpent
Usually I try to follow a happy post/grumpy post pattern, one per week. But this week I am seriously grumped, so you get two grumpy posts.
