Hello, all and welcome to WednesdayBookClub. My name is geesejuggler and no matter how many times I see this bookshelf, I want it more! Isn’t it pretty! Let’s get started. »
This week’s episode of Face Off doesn’t feature an explicit Star Trek challenge but there’s no doubt that it is a major influence to the point of having Jonathan Frakes and Michael Dorn appear. The Spotlight Challenge has a neat twist that I hope is used again in future seasons. Spoilers ahead. »
Was that a good headline? That’s how you write headlines today isn’t it? Also - You’ll totally believe what he took with him, because he’s a Dane. And I put a picture before the break to make it pretty obvious... OK, It’s LEGO. He took 26 specially designed Lego toys with him Into Space. Because Space LEGO!
Let’s take a look at all the great new horror films coming out this September! There’s a pretty good selection coming out this month, including a few big name titles. As always, please leave a comment if you know about something else releasing outside the US, On Demand, or elsewhere. Or just drop in and tell us what… »
I rarely fill out a survey online (I think that this is the first that wasn’t required of me), but in the interest of random information generation, science, and entertainment, I have filled in the XKCD Survey. The stakes are low, but the entertainment is high. »
While it’s not the title of the upcoming Game of Thrones book, fire tornadoes and fire rainbows are fantastic to behold. And, yes, they do also sound more like questionable D&D spells than the striking physical phenomena that they are. In August 2015, one of these special rainbows appeared at a beach, and Idaho saw a… »
Take a hint from the Norwegians. Or - Monty Python, apparently. Of course if there’s one nation who could manage to weaponize fish, it’s a Scandinavian one. »
A few days ago, The Guardian published a terrible piece by a literary critic declaring Sir Terry’s books mediocre (as opposed to literature), even though he had not read any of them. Outrage ensued, and it seems that now The Guardian wants to make said critic read at least one Terry Pratchett book. Rather predictably,… »
This design has, among coin collectors I’ve spoken to, been quite polarizing. Some people absolutely love it. Others find it incredibly ugly. There’s little middle ground. »
What do you think could have caused this otherworldly sign on the island of Tasmania? Merry pranksters? Bored Aussie teens? Aliens from another world? You’d like to think so, wouldn’t you? »
So many topics for a lone person to take on but if anybody can do it, it would be the Amazing Morpheuse! That’s right ladies and gentlemen, here on this very Observation Deck Morpheuse will answer any and all questions regarding being a Muslim in Southeast Asia, culture and foodstuffs! If that’s not enough for you… »
I thought I knew Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. After all, it has been my favorite movie for most of my life, ever since it came out in 1982. I’ve watched it more times then I can recount. (My sister was downright sick of it when we were kids! “You’re watching that again?”) It is one of the few movies I’ve deemed… »
Have you ever wondered what your friendly neighborhood paleontologist would think of the dinosaur toy you’re playing with? No? Neither did I, until: this video. I found it funny in a few places and also pretty interesting, in terms of teaching me more about dinosaurs.
A magical healer gets involved in espionage and intrigue when she meets a mysterious spy disguised as an airship steward in Beth Cato’s debut novel. This steampunk adventure doesn’t quite deliver on either the intrigue or the romance promised, however... »

Many people felt that a certain box may have helped with the pacing. Ever since, The Walking Dead has moved at a brisk pace,… »
