Firefly Writer Announces Involvement with Slingers

It’s been over a year since we’ve seen any significant developments regarding Slingers, the Firefly-meets-Ocean’s Eleven television show from UK writer Mike Sizemore. The last anyone heard, Slingers was in a developmental holding pattern, existing only as a “sizzle reel.” But now it seems that the show might be moving forward sooner than anyone realized. Jose […]

Modern Geek #4: Device Transport, G+ Mashups

We dig into the process of choosing a bag in which to carry all your mobile devices (and other stuff). We hear about Juan’s attempt to merge two G+ hangout sessions (and how we might construct a serious system to do a better job of it). We talk about this week’s Google Docs outage, musing […]

It’s our inaugural live podcast, and what a great time we had. About 40 people joined via UStream and more via Twitter. This week’s Eff This Week crew: Chuck, Audra, and Juan. Highlights: Chuck sings, briefly (and vaginas snap shut around the world). We heckle the UStream Bot. We discover that Chuck calls his “hammer” […]

Haven’s Got Troubles — But What the Hell Are They?

Last year I wrote about this amazing SyFy show that debuted in July 2010 set in a quaint Northeastern coastal town called Haven. Based loosely on Stephen King’s The Colorado Kid, this show continues to amaze and captivate me. It’s a well put together story with great acting and, as Chuck often puts it, “a […]

Cost Kills Eureka: A “Subway-style” Opportunity?

Our friends over at Slice of SciFi picked up on Eureka producer Amy Berg’s tweets, explaining the reasons behind the show’s cancellation. From their news piece: “Everyone is asking why [the show was cancelled]. It’s simple, really. We are the network’s golden child in every way, except for profit margins. Fact is, Eureka is an […]

A Rise of the Planet of the Apes Trilogy?

The Operator tipped us off today to an Entertainment Weekly piece interviewing Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver, the husband-and-wife team who wrote the seriously awesome RotPotA screenplay. The bombshell drops when the interviewer asks about the possibility of sequels. While Jaffa and Silver clearly state that “there hasn’t been any official discussion yet about a […]

Snowblowers, Wine Coolers and William Shatner

When we say we are the friendliest frakin’ people in scifi we mean it. We are a community of people who respect each other, share with each other and have fun with each other. We are clever, we are occasionally insightful and almost always hi-larious. One perfect example of our friendly hivemind leaping into action […]

Pre-SDCC 2011 Expectations

Tomorrow I leave for my geek post-graduate final exercise. It’s been just a few years since my return to Geekdom, and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. I’ve connected with other like-minded geeks. I’ve experienced new-to-me sci-fi material like Farscape and Buffy. I’ve re-emerged myself in gaming. I’ve collected science fiction memorabilia. I’ve purchased geek-related […]

Expanding The Home Movie Experience: Disney’s Second Screen

I’m usually one to be completely engrossed in watching a movie at home. In fact, to make sure I hear the dialogue correctly, I usually turn on the closed captioning. But with a movie or franchise I’m really interested in, I know I’ll be watching the movie over and over again, like the obsessed geek […]

Avatar Artistry

Waiting for the Xbox 360 Halo Limited Edition Bundle to be delivered is driving me crazy. Fortunately, Microsoft set up things so I can keep myself busy online at xbox.com while I wait. Last time I described how I choose my Gamertag when I set up my Xbox Live Family Gold Pack (see my post […]

Grabbing A Great Gamertag

With the Xbox 360 Halo Reach Limited Edition Bundle on its way (see my previous GWC Blog post “Got Game? An Xbox 360 Voyage Begins“), I was faced with a dilemma. It was now time to establish my Xbox Live account. Shooter Jr and I had already decided that we would go halvsies on a […]
