Hey fans, you’re more than a cash machine…

The other day I was browsing Her Universe. I love Her Universe. They have some really great geeky girl clothing. They have some great pieces in larger sizes, but not all of their clothes are and, lately, a lot less of it has been in sizes I can wear. For example this scoop tee, which […]

Fandom. Let’s talk about copyright and that cunning hat.

  Copyright and the fandom have never been great friends. I understand, some of my favorite things in the fandom are not-technically allowed.

Alright I give…

I’m probably going to have to turn in my Whedon fangirl badge for this, but after reading everything I could get my hands on, from articles, to interviews to fan sites I’ve decided the majority must be right: Dollhouse just isn’t a great show. I’m an extremely open-minded person. I think my ability to put […]

Media…is my thing.

So, I’ve been working overtime. The site for Buffy: Between the Lines is up. You can hear our very first teaser promo/skit written/edited together by me. The voice actors are one of the writers and her husband and a fellow podcaster. I’m getting pumped to share what people are writing… it’s still a ways off, […]
