Awesome.That's the word that I would use to describe my Saturday, July 9. And it's an appropriate word to use since I got to hang out with Paxton Holley from the Cavalcade of Awesome blog. I've referenced Paxton before. We were awarded a "Versatile Blogger Award" from him last September.Followers of this blog or Nerd [...]

JEEG:If only more people knew about this episode. http://www.poobala.com/manimalandnightman.htmlCT:So I click on the link, read the article. I wonder if the same actor played Manimal in Nightman. So I look him up on IMDb. Simon MacCorkindale played Manimal in "Manimal" and Manimal in "Nightman."As I'm looking through his list of other work, I notice that [...]

I mentioned Poobala's Crossovers & Spin Offs site in a 2007 post about some of my favorite TV crossovers. Allow me to restate how fantastic this site is. Sure, the web design aesthetic is straight out of the year 1997, but the content cannot be topped. Take this little example. My wife's latest guilty pleasure [...]

I read the news that Samuel L. Jackson and Hillary Swank will be playing bit parts in next year's Iron Man movie. Jackson will presumably be playing Nick Fury and I would guess Swank a strong contender for The Black Widow. There have been rumors circulating that the Iron Man movie would lead into spin-offs [...]
