I know I haven't been around in a long time, but I still think of you often. In fact, I thought of you all immediately when I saw this photo from the Washington Post featuring fashion forward fems in facekinis. It's the most amazing writing prompt ever.
Oh dear god, I felt like I was going to lose my lunch just watching this yet I couldn't stop. A base jumper equipped with a Go Pro unintentionally films his horrific accident as he tumbles (with shoot attached) down the side of a cliff. Business Insider reports he had a compression fracture to his spine, five…
be a rogue Gallifreyan or a human companion? Why?
*Spoilers from this week's episode alert!*
I want to get an inexpensive graphics tablet to use with Elements. Does anyone have any recommendations?
Does anyone have suggestion for a free Mac based virus software?
*Slight Spoilers Warning for this past Tuesday's SHIELD*
This should be a question for Oppositelock, but I'm posting here all the same. Anywho, does anyone have suggestions on the best products to use when washing your car? What do you all prefer that's gentle on the paint but still makes a car look spiffy?
Every year for the last three I've made a costume for my kitty Lilly instead of carving a pumpkin. (Pumpkins are sticky, the guts get everywhere, and they begin rotting as soon as you've created your masterpiece. Kitties are soft, fluffy, and the only mess they make is the occasional hairball.) This year, Lilly's…
Oh, man, guys this totally made my morning. Even the best kids throw epic tantrums sometimes. This dad decided to add some levity to the situation by lip syncing his daughter's live trantrum.
A longtime House of Representatives' stenographer seized the microphone during the vote tonight to end the shutdown. The woman began ranting, proclaiming "He [God] will not be mocked!" and continued, railing against the Freemasons. If I didn't know better, I'd say this was a publicity stunt for an upcoming Dan Brown…
I was googling around for no carve pumpkin ideas when I found this big fella. It's so strangely realistic, I can hardly tear myself away from it's penetrating gaze. I'm super impressed, though I must admit, I'd rather kiss Han than this Wookie any day.
You know what we haven't done in a looooong time? An io9araoke. Yep, it's high time we started singing off-key to each other once more (with feeling). So pick a song that describes how you're feeling this dreary Monday morning and post it in the comments.
YOU GUYS! YOU GUYS! YOU GUYS! I was five feet away from the voice of Night Vale and it was glorious! Cecil Baldwin, Mara Wilson (as the Faceless Old Woman Who Secretly Lives In Your Home), and creator Joseph Fink performed an extended version of an upcoming episode two days ago in San Francisco this week. One of…
Went to lock up for the day last night and saw this so I had to go and grab my camera. It's the moon illuminating Sutro Tower. It looks so science fictiony! Unfortunately, I could hold still long enough for a better shot because I could see so much detail on the moon from the lens. Does anyone have any…
GUYS! GUYS! I'm so excited! Cecil and Joseph Fink are coming to my very favorite bookstore, the Booksmith. No details as to what time and where yet. (I don't think it'll be at the store, it's too small to hold the 200-300 Fink is anticipating.) I CAN'T WAIT! Anybody else planning on coming?
It's time for an #OpenChannel question of our own, kiddos, and I have a whopper of a question for you! Bill Nye the Science Guy will be on this season's of Dancing With The Stars, kicking up his heels with a hoofer who's new to the show, Tyne Stecklein. I've decided the duo will be a glorious super nova explosion of…
HOLY CRAP! Huffington Post is reporting on a supposed new trend in plastic surgery emerging in South Korea to give patients a perma-smile. The photo supplied of the new trend reaches uncanny valley levels of creepy. Here, have a look. [Edited to add additional photos.]
Nathan Fillion and kittens. You're welcome o'deck. [Edit: Hi Group Think! Nice to meet you.]
I'm working on a list and I need your help. What are one or two of your most favorite small independent blogs focusing on science fiction and fantasy related goodness?
