Sir Pratchett Sir Pratchett
Since I’ve talked up Terry Pratchett so much on this site (here and here and here), I think I’d be remiss not to note that he was freaking knighted by God’s Holy Vessel on Earth (take that Pope!), The Queen of freaking England. Go Terry, go Terry, go Terry.  What I learned from this...

FOOL by Christopher Moore FOOL by Christopher Moore
Dearest readers and adoring fans, In the wake of Valentine’s Weekend — much of which I spent playing WoW during the “Love Is In the Air” world event, passing around enough virtual cards to NPCs to actually get the Bag of Candies to drop the three times I needed so that I might...

file photo: Y at graduation (Plymouth, 1796) First, spelling Vampyre with a “y” was traditional before it was trendy, ok? Second, everyone knows some of the fictional tropes about about vampires: they drink blood, have super-human strength, tend strongly toward the alluringly sensual,...

Technology: Friend or Foe? Technology: Friend or Foe?
Maybe it’s just me, but everyone seems to be slamming facebook lately.  It could be that the few hold-outs who have refused to create a facebook page have become as dogmatic about their refusal as those people who refuse to read Harry Potter, not because they wouldn’t like it but because...

Artemis Fowl [books] Artemis Fowl [books]
In preping this review, I learned that the author, Eoin Colfer, has described his Artemis Fowl series as “Die Hard with faries.”  A nice tagline, but it immediately confused the hell out of me about the three books I just read.  I mention the tagline not to knock the quality of the series...

The Hogfather [holidays] The Hogfather [holidays]
Since the last time I got on my virtual soapbox to unabashedly shill for Terry Pratchett and the realism of the fantastic in all forms, I have probably covered another ten of his novels. I would read one, read the first quarter of another book, decide that one can wait, then start the next Terry Pratchett...

Let The Right One In [movies] Let The Right One In [movies]
First, you should read Y’s review… By all accounts, Tomas Alfredson’s film, Let The Right One In, shouldn’t be what it is. A story about two child neighbors, one obsessed with crime and one a vampire, should be harsher, rougher, and more sensational and crazy than this film....
