Crafting with Feminism
25 Girl-Powered Projects to Smash the Patriarchy
Paperback | Kindle Edition
Written by Bonnie Burton
Forward by Felicia Day
Publisher: Quirk Books
Publication Date: October 18th, 2016

I definitely have to make a Buffy the Vampire Slayer prayer candle from page 103. And with that, I’m hooked. I am not a crafty crafter. I can do a hook rug, or do a little ceramic painting, but I’m not a glitter, special scissor, felt fabric, glue gun type of gal. But this cute little number is lighthearted fare, for the beginner to intermediate, as long as you have a silly sense of humor. One needs that when making vagina ornaments, or one of the other projects for fun fierce women in Crafting with Feminism: 25 Girl-Powered Projects to Smash the Patriarchy by Bonnie Burton.

SDCC 2016: In The Not-Too-Distant Future, The Revived ‘MST3K’ Is Coming To Netflix

Mystery Science Theater 3000 MST3K

Last November, Shout! Factory, which owns the rights to the cult classic comedy series Mystery Science Theater 3000, teamed up with the show’s creator and first host Joel Hodgson to launch a Kickstarter campaign to fund a reboot of MST3K. Their target fundraising goal was set at $2 million, but the campaign ultimately became the highest-funded film and TV crowdfunding effort in history by raising a grand total of $5.7 million, allowing them to fund the production of 14 new episodes with an all-star squadron of geek icons and comedy geniuses working in front of and behind the camera.

On Saturday at a panel for the MST3K revival at San Diego Comic-Con, the announcement was made that the new show will be coming exclusively to Netflix as part of a $5 billion investment from the film and television streaming giant in original programming, which also includes their Marvel Studios series and the recent Stranger Things.

NYCC 2015: ‘Con Man’ Panel With Alan Tudyk & Nathan Fillion

NYCC 2015: Con Man panel

Alan Tudyk, Nathan Fillion, Seth Green, and Felicia Day, the stars of Con Man, made an appearance at a panel on Friday at New York Comic-Con to talk about the new web series.

Called an event 13 years in the making, Alan Tudyk (Firefly, I Robot) and Nathan Fillion (Castle, Firefly) developed the idea for Con Man in Tudyk’s kitchen. Later, we’d find during the panel that most of the ideas, sans two, were Tudyk’s. Their ideas were to have a show about actors and conventions, and the fans that worship them. The problem: no producers wanted it. Tudyk relayed later that many wanted to mock the fans and portray cosplayers as weirdos instead of devoted lovers of the art. Together they took to Indiegogo and through their devoted fans raised $3.2 million through 46,000 fan donations and did the show as a web series.

SDCC 2015: First Trailer For ‘Firefly’-Inspired ‘Con Man’ From Alan Tudyk, Nathan Fillion
The Movie God   |  

Alan Tudyk's Con Man

We may never see Firefly live and breathe again (unless someone finally wakes up and finds a way to makes it happen for us), but while die hard fans of the series continue to hopelessly wait for that day to arrive something else inspired by Joss Whedon‘s show has been born.

Back in March we found out about Con Man, a web series from Firefly co-stars Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion. Mirroring their previous gig working together, the web series follows actors from a canceled (far too soon) science fiction TV show. The actor who playued the captain on the show (Fillion) goes on to become a big movie star, while the actor who played the pilot (Tudyk) finds himself traveling around making appearances and sci-fi conventions.

A trailer for Con Man was shared during their panel at San Diego Comic-Con—the first web series to have a Hall H panel—and now the trailer is available to enjoy online. You can see it below along with a poster and full synopsis that includes the cast of very familiar names you’ll see in the series.

TV Review: Supernatural 10.21 “Dark Dynasty”

Supernatural: Dark Dynasty

Season 10 Episode 21: “Dark Dynasty”
Created by Eric Kripke
Directed by Robert Singer
Written by Eugenie Ross-Leming, Brad Buckner
Starring Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Mark Sheppard
The CW
Air Date: Wednesday, May 6th, 2015, 9:00pm

Last week’s Supernatural was one of my favorites of the season. “Angel Heart” brought us back to Claire Novak (Kathryn Love Newton), daughter of Jimmy Novak, Castiel’s (Misha Collins) vessel. She was looking for her mother, gone for years, searching for a Jimmy that lived in heaven by choice. Her mother was being captive by an ancient order of fallen angels… well angel, who sucked souls out of people slowly. It left them with heavenly dreams. What was great about that episode was the dynamic between this belligerent teenage girl, who really craved love, and each of the men. Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Claire were really funny, having fun and trading insults. He taught her some hunter stuff, as did Sam (Jared Padalecki). And as much as Castiel said he merely felt responsible for her, I think he really cares for her as a father figure.

Supernatural Book of the Damned

Starring Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, and Mark Sheppard.

Air Date: Wednesday, April 15th, 2015, 9:00pm

The brothers are back! But before we get to the review for Supernatural episode 10.18 “Book Of The Damned,” let’s hop into the Impala and drive back to 2 weeks ago for a recap of episode 10.17 “Inside Man.”

IGIT! Bobby Singer (Jim Beaver) is on the case! With the Mark of Cain still in charge of of Dean’s fate, Castiel (Misha Collins) and Sam need Metatron (Curtis Armstrong), but he resides in heavenly Rikers. Through a medium, they contact Bobby who lives in his own heaven (looks pretty lonely to me). Bobby has a purpose now, and jumps right in. The part where Bobby releases all the “Robert Singers” (and one Roberta!) in heaven to throw the angel police off his tail, is perfect. Bobby is definitely in big trouble though.

George Takei Plays Video Games For First Time With Felicia Day (Video)
The Movie God   |  

George Takei and Felicia Day Play Mario Party 4

As it turns out, Star Trek legend George Takei has never played a video game in his entire 76 years of life on this planet of ours. Not until now, that is.

Takei was a guest on Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog star Felicia Day‘s YouTube series “Co-Optitude,” where she usually plays retro games with her brother. Day was first a guest on Takei’s YouTube show “Takei’s Take” where they talked gaming, which led to the discovery that he’s never played a game before and his joining her for some Mario Party 4 action on GameCube.

You can check out the video of George Takei’s first gaming experience below.

Dragon*Con 2012: The Guild panel

Every year at Dragon*Con, The Guild panel always ends up being my favorite of the convention. This panel always bring tons of laughs and is suprisingly informative. This year’s panel featured the entire Knights of Good cast: Felicia Day, Sandeep Parikh, Jeff Lewis, Amy Okuda, Robin Thorsen, and Vincent Caso and it was hilarious. The cast has great chemistry and good-naturedly ribbed each other and the audience through the entire event. Felicia Day moderated and immediately opened it up to a fan Q&A.

Felicia Day noted that The Guild: Season 6 just wrapped up shooting a day and a half ago and its release will come SOON. No specific release date or time-frame was specified. Also noteworthy was that Jeff Lewis’ baby makes a cameo appearance in the new season and he’s got another baby on the way. Congratulations from Geeks of Doom, Jeff!

Beginning as a webisode series, The Guild follows main character Cyd Sherman, otherwise known as Codex, who is grappling with her obsession (addiction) with online gaming. Participating in a MMORPG (resembling World of Warcraft, but referred to only as "The Game" in the show), Codex is teamed with a guild known as the Knights Of Good.
