time tunnel feat

One of the perks of being in the Bay Area is that there are some really cool toy stores up in here. One of them, Time Tunnel Toys, even puts on a great toy show every once in a while. It goes beyond just toys, however, and includes a bunch of other cool stuff, such as celebrity appearances. This weekend will be playing host to a couple of cool cats, such as Veronica Cartwright (Alien, Invasion of the Body Snatchers) and Walter Jones (original Black Ranger).

‘More Than Human’ – Newest Web Series From FanboyFilmmaker.com

More Than Human - Main Cast feat

As I’ve stated many times before, I love web series (yes that’s the plural…I looked it up). I think they’re a great format for viewing content, as they aren’t inhibited by many of network and cable television’s many barriers. Usually my only gripe is that they don’t last long enough (I’m looking at you Misfits). Yea yea, I understand the need for money and all that important stuff, but I wants more.

Star Wars Spinoff Subjects: The Han Solo & The Boba Fett

Well, if ever there were some characters that deserved a spin-off it was definitively these two…

After getting the vague whisper that Star Wars spin-offs were part of Disney’s grand scheme, there was little else said about it. But now, we get a glimpse of just what they have in store. And it is pretty glorious.

We’ve talked about Dark Delicacies before last year, when we took a jaunt to Los Angeles. It’s a great store in general, but especially for fans of the horror and supernatural genres. Run by an amazing couple, Dark Delicacies plays host to a number of signings and events for books, movies and more. We like to keep you updated on such things as, even if you aren’t in LA, you can pick up their merchandise online.

So, here’s what’s happening at Dark Delicacies over the next couple of months:

Retro Review: X-Men Legends II: Rise Of Apocalypse

XMLII featured

Back in the long long ago (2004) I got a game from my sister for Christmas. That little gem was the original X-Men legends. To say I got lost in it would be an understatement, as it became the only thing I would play for a few months. To give you some perspective, this was also during my times with The Sims, Final Fantasy IX, Chrono Cross, and Soul Caliber II, so it had some stiff competition.
