January was the longest year of my life, but February only took what, a week? Bleh. I’m finally feeling better after the great allergic reaction of December 2017. I’ve gotten furniture built in my apartment, so I had space to get out a lot of my books and plushies! It’s not everything yet, some of…… Continue reading Update: March!
I’m back on the Star Trek posts at Comparative Geeks, with a reflection last month and a post on movie commentaries today! I’ve gotta actually watch more TNG soon and get some more posting material, I know… I’ve been sick-slash-injured for most of December and January (moral of the story: if you have severe allergies,…… Continue reading Update: February!

Back in August of 2016 I wrote up a post about my visit to the Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta, Georgia. Short version: I loved it. Y’all seemed very interested here and on Facebook, and the visit launched a lasting interest in puppets for me, so I thought I’d finally follow it up with…… Continue reading Books and Movies on Puppetry
No Trek post this month, Comparative Geeks is on a hiatus, but Trek shall return! This past month I’ve really been focused on apartment stuff, and yet somehow I’ve gotten behind on it at the same time? I still have so many things to clean and organize, not to mention furniture to assemble and more…… Continue reading Update: December!
I’ve loved the X-Men since I was about ten. Movies, comic books, novels, tie-ins, toys, all the way up to the latest movies, I’m about it. So, my first reaction when I heard about The Gifted was to wonder if they would have anything new to say. They don’t necessarily have to, the first X-Men movie was 17…… Continue reading I’ve been watching The Gifted and I have thoughts.
The Russia House is a 1990 espionage movie starring Sean Connery and Michelle Pfeiffer. It’s based on a novel by John le Carre, who’s sort of the bureaucrat’s Ian Fleming. I’ve said we should talk more about action movies, so here we are — but it is based on a book, the main character is a publisher,…… Continue reading The Russia House: On James Bond, Atomic Blonde, and Being a Realistic Spy Movie
I’ve been a casual Star Wars fan forever. I happily admit that the original trilogy are some of the best movies ever made, but I found the sheer scope of the fandom and expanded universe much too daunting for me. Every so often I might try a novel here or there based on recommendations from…… Continue reading Review: Star Wars Disney Canon Graphic Novels
So there’s a travel guide for the planet Vulcan from Star Trek. As a hardcore Vulcan-obsessed Trekkie, of course I wanted to check it out. I didn’t have high hopes, I just expected it to be mildly amusing and nicely designed — it’s from Insight Editions, which publishes a lot of TV and film art…… Continue reading Review: Vulcan (Hidden Universe Travel Guides) by Dayton Ward
This month’s Star Trek post is about four recent documentaries — a couple you’ve probably heard of and a couple you maybe haven’t, ranging from real good to real bad. Check it out and let me know if I’ve missed any! I’ve made some progress on #readmyowndamnbooks in August, thanks to grad school being over and me…… Continue reading Star Trek Documentaries and Challenge Update
