The NBA is fast approaching (the sun only has to circle the Earth’s plane 56 more times until opening night), but you can kick off the basketball season in your driveway with this $130 hoop . That’s $70 less than usual, and an all-time low. You can even drop it down to 6.5 feet, so pretty much any schlub can dunk.
In the months leading up to its launch, DC Comics touted its new Black Label imprint as a part of its publishing arm where big-name comics creators could tell bold, mature stories about its heroes, exploring aspects of their lives that more mainstream titles tend not to. Brian Azzarello and Lee Bermejo’s Batman: Damned made the biggest splash, in part, because a few panels featured a full...View more »

Interestingly enough, many of Riverdale’s stars will play the younger...View more »
So, I’m late because I had a lot of fun hanging out with my friend who visited. Now I am inspired by this app called Adventure Capitalist where I spend the day pretending I am rich in a quick and speedy and pretty easy app. It’s kind of like How I used to like that boardgame, PayDay or in general, all the fun games that celebrate Capitalism. So in that vein, let’s talk about these games like...View more »
God bless the quiet dignity of Shea Whigham’s Thomas Carrasco. The man can get the runaround from practically everyone he speaks to, endure gentle mockery and sneering condescension alike, but still stand stolid in the face of such scorn—and even hang up on his boss mid-dressing down. You go, Thomas.
The constant cross-cutting between...View more »

On Martha's Vineyard and in Nantucket, Kevin Esvelt, an evolutionary biologist at MIT, has proposed fighting Lyme disease using genetically engineered mice.

I think this is the angriest pigeon in San Diego. I saw him during Comic Con at a trolley station.
I still have panels I want to talk about but I thought I’d take to-day to talk about more miscellaneous Con matters. I packed a lunch every day of the Con and on Thursday and Saturday I enjoyed watching some live, violent mediaeval melee while I ate.
Like every year, the Society for Creative...View more »
