Will V stay on my TV?

In the fall of 2009, there seemed to be an endless number of continued and new television shows Shooter Jr and I were looking forward to watching. Eighteen months later, it is a very different landscape on our DVR and TV Guide. Granted, there are still some great shows left but there a quite a […]

Bender Brewer Project: The Deets

We all heard about Simon Janson’s awesomely practical Bender brewer project, but now the project’s creator has taken the time to assemble a sweet online tutorial to walk other Futurama fans through the process of building their own. The task involves some basic woodwork — plus a bit of PVC and fiberglass. My favorite part, […]


Where’s That Smell-O-Scope When You Need It?

Futurama scores again! Last week Slashdot reported that “ISS Science Officer Don Pettit reports in his journal that outer space gives off a smell best described as ‘a rather pleasant sweet metallic sensation.’” Is Pettit’s blog he notes how he discovered the “smell” when re-pressurizing the ISS’s airlock to admit fellow astronauts after EVAs. If […]
